Oh, Adam! I didn't know you like to live so dangerously! Inviting the enemy into your own house is a very bold move. Be very careful, I hear the Scooba's drowning techniques are much more effective.

My mind was cluttered by the dirt in my house. I thought I could control the robot, but I knew better. You can't control the robot. We can't live in perfect harmony. We must destroy them all.

Robots are interested in the imagination of distance and time. Creative imagination departs from order, but does not rest within chaos. Adam, the robots are just looking for creative imagination at the edge of chaos.
