    ‘…I merely asked, is that a chandelier over my head?’

  2. FrankN.Stein Says:

    Surprisingly, I recognize the scene from the book. I don’t remember Daneel pulling off a Clarke Kent impersonation, though….. 🙂

    This is how Ted Cruz’s campaign will end.

    C-3PO. It’s me R2-D2. Now that I can afford a good Hollywood plastic surgeon I’ve had some work done.

    One hell of a chest tattoo.

    I can cater to Friend Lije’s desire for a Russian rent-boy and RB2-11’s need for an interface: I’m trans-genre. Now will somebody pop upstairs and turn off the bath-taps before it overflows and shorts me?

    “In Russia, you do not have sex with robot, robot has sex with you!”

  9. Anna T. Says:

    Both the silver protocol droid and the guy leaning against the pillar look pretty shocked by this revelation. It’s quite possible they thought Daneel (or whoever) was going to come on to them.

    Does give sexy-shirt-ripping a new meaning, though.

    “They said they would get me a new Android for my birthday, well these aren’t the Droids I’m looking for.”

    “I’m not that kind of droid.”

  12. Perry Armstrong Says:

    “You’ll find that works better with a longer coat” said Baley, knowingly.

    “Now the pants.”

  14. elvraie Says:

    I’m too sexy for my shirt, too sexy, it hurts (and it comes off!)

    “The Fourth Law states that a robot should not strip naked, unless ordered so by a human.”

  16. HappyBookworm Says:

    @ Anna T. I don’t know…I think the android and pillar-leaning guy are not so much shocked as standing there going, “Umm…..oh..kay…” like they’re not sure what reaction shirt-ripping man was going for. Bemused…

  17. Jon K. Says:

    @Anna T. – I dunno, I kinda pictured silver-bot as thinking “Eww, your circuits are all messed up….”

  18. Perry Armstrong Says:

    “These stickers came with 2000 A.D. Prog 2 – do you like them?”
