(Fade into the Satellite of Love, where Tom Servo and Crow are looking at a
Servo: Wow!!! Check out the chips on this baby!
Crow: Man, she could feed an army!
Servo: Hurry up and turn to the centerfold...
(Joel enters from stage right.)
Joel: Hi, guys, what are you reading?
Servo: Oh, uh, nothing...
Crow: Yeah, and you can't stop us from doing it, either!
Joel: Let me see that... (takes the magazine) Playbot?!? You guys aren't
old enough to be looking at this...
Crow: It was Tom's idea!
Servo: I just wanted to read the interview with Bill Gates - *you* were the
one who turned to the pictures.
Crow: Did not!
Servo: Did too!
Joel: Knock it off, guys. So my two little bots are growing up, huh? Guess
you guys have some questions for me...
Servo: Umm, no, actually I think we've got it covered, Joel...
Crow: I have a question!
Joel: Ok, Crow, go ahead.
Crow: Ok, say I went into a bar, and met this really cool lady bot. We have
a few jolts, then she wants to go back to my place. What do I do after
Joel: Well, you go on back to your place, and then you watch TV.
Joel: Um, you talk?
Crow: C'mon, Joel, get to the good stuff! What about - you know?
Joel: Oh, that... I don't think you're ready to start learning about

(The viewscreen opens.)
Frank: Hello, Joel, Tom, Crow. How are you today?
(Joel and the bots regard each other for a second.)
Joel: We're fine, except for being stuck in outer space, I guess...
Crow: Yeah, what kind of question is that, blubber boy?
Frank: Well, Dr. Forrester wanted to know. Oh, here he is now - I'll let
him explain it...
Dr. Forrester: Good evening, my little pet project... Tonight, we're going
to change the pace a little. Instead of our normal experiment, we're going
to patch through a netnews feed that we picked up. I think you'll find
it... TERRIBLE! Muah-hah-hah-hah! Hit the button, Frank!
(Lights begin to flash on the SOL.)
Joel & the bots: MOVIE SIGN! WE'VE GOT MOVIE SIGN!
(Everyone clears the set, and Cambot moves through the tunnel as the doors
open: 6 - 5 - 4 - 3 - 2 - 1. And the theatre comes into view, as Joel
enters, carrying Servo, followed by Crow.)
Joel: I hope this won't take long; I've got to go brush my teeth.
Crow: Yeah, and make sure you use mouthwash this time, halitosis boy!

Servo: You don't know that, Crow. They could just be shy!

through a mail-order bride company?

Crow: Wow! Only $29.00? How many do you get to choose for that?
Joel: Crow, they only send you the booklets - you have to do everything
else. They aren't actually selling women.
Crow: Geez! What a rip!
