Um. Yike.

I think I'll skip that movie, even though I'd save (ulp) on popcorn.

Some people do not understand automata.

Hah. Who designs a robot that can't walk down stairs?

I sometimes wonder if that movie is a reflection of, or the spawning chamber of, some of the NRA's fantasies.

Drifty,

Your clip left out the best (to this former geek, anyway) part of that scene. A few seconds after your clip ends the corrupt project manager of ED-209 turns to the CEO and says "I'm sure its only a software glitch. A minor setback."

One of my favorite movie scenes EVAH. Saw this when I was in house counsel for a defense contractor. Laughed my ass off.

The only thing wrong with the clip is that they left off the part where the Chairman and CEO says, "Bob, I'm very disappointed."
