My brain is falling out.
Please make me a real boy.
I like your floor.
I never had a birthday.
Mommy...I'm sorry I broke myself.
I can never go to sleep...but I can lay quietly and not make a peep.
My mommy doesn't hate me! Because I'm special! And unique! Because there's never been anyone like me before, ever! Mommy loves Martin because he is real, and when I am real Mommy's going to read to me and tuck me in my bed and sing to me and listen to what I say and she will cuddle with me and tell me every day a hundred times a day that she loves me!
She loves what you do for her, as my customers love what it is I do for them. But she does not love you David, she cannot love you. You are neither flesh, nor blood. You are not a dog, a cat, or a canary. You were designed and built specific, like the rest of us. And you are alone now only because they tired of you, or replaced you with a younger model, or were displeased with something you said, or broke. They made us too smart, too quick, and too many. We are suffering for the mistakes they made because when the end comes, all that will be left is us. That's why they hate us, and that is why you must stay here, with me.
There are girls your age that are just like me. We are the guiltless pleasures of the lonely human being. You won't get us pregnant or have us to supper with mommy and daddy. We work under you, we work on you and we work for you. Man made us better at what we do than was ever humanly possible.
Many a mecha has gone to the end of the world... never to come back! That is why they call the end of the world 'MAN-hattan'.
They hate us, you know... The humans. They'll stop at nothing.
In this day and age, David, nothing costs more than information.
When you become a real boy, remember me to the ladies when you grow up.
I am... I was.
Gigolo Joe, whaddaya know?
The greatest single human gift - the ability to chase down our dreams.
You are a real boy. At least as real as I've ever made one.
My son was one of a kind. You're the first of a kind.
Come away O human child/ To the waters and the wild/ With a fairy hand in hand/ For the world's more full of weeping/ Than you can understand.

Those were the years when the icecaps melted due to the greenhouse gases and the oceans had risen and drowned so many cities along all the shorelines of the world. Amsterdam, Venice, New York forever lost. Millions of people were displaced. Climate became chaotic. Hundreds of millions of people starved in poorer countries. Elsewhere a high degree of prosperity survived when most governments in the developed world introduced legal sanctions to license pregnancies. Which was why robots, who were never hungry and did not consume resources beyond those of their first manufacture were so essential an economic link in the chain mail society.
I am not a toy!
Now we run!
