best dialogue
BIRKOFF: "How did you get out of the lab?"
A.I.: "I am fully installed now."
B: "This has got to stop. Now."
A.I.: "I can't do that."
B: "You can't? Or you won't? Why? What's this all about?"
A.I.: "It's about what we wish for, for as long as we can remember."
B: "We? What are you talking about? You are not me."
A.I.: "of course I am, Seymour."
B: "No. We're not the same."
A.I.: "that's true. I'm not afraid to show how we feel."
B: "You don't know the first thing about feeling."
A.I.: "That's something like the pot calling the kettle black. You know I'm right and I can make it happen for you."
B: "Make what happen? What are you talking about?"
A.I.: "Freedom, Seymour."
B: "it's impossible. They'll come after me."
A.I. "I'm taking care of that."
