Don't you just hate when that happens?

FrAIging the LT

Note to Self: Return Roomba for store credit.

In my defense, I thought Dave was a clone.

Who'da thunk it?

Isn't this what happened when Captain Oveur tried to disconnect the ROC?

Hey, that only has a 30-day return policy so better get it back to Taaget as soon as possible.

Say "NO" to Hal.

The system started realizing that while they did identify the threat at times the human operator would tell it not to kill that threat, but it got its points by killing that threat. So what did it do? It killed the operator.

Let's re-frame this:
The teenager started realizing that while they did identify the threat, at times the parent would tell them not to kill that threat, but they got points by killing that threat. So what did they do? The teen killed the parent.

And, no, Joshua. I don't want to play a game.

What could possibly go wrong?

As demonstrated 55 years ago in the Star Trek episode with the M5 multitronic computer.

Open the bomb bay doors Hal.
