Mary 25

1 FOLKS, WE'RE GATHERED HERE BECAUSE QUITE FRANKLY, INNOBOTICS HAS BECOME STAGNANT, THAT'S WHY CHARLIE BOUTON'S DIVISION HAS BEEN SEARCHING FOR NEW AREAS OF BUSINESS FOR THIS COMPANY TO EXPLORE, TODAY HE'S GOING TO TALK ABOUT THEIR CONCLUSION, CHARLIE? THANK YOU, MRS, JANUS, ON AVERAGE, 64% OF THE CHILDREN IN THIS COUNTRY HAVE TWO WORKING PARENTS, LAST YEAR, 9 MILLION CHILDREN WERE IN SOME FORM OF CHILD CARE AND THEIR PARENTS PAID BETWEEN $6,000 AND $12,000 A YEAR FOR IT, THIS IS A HUGE MARKE JUST WAITING TO BE TAPPED, WHAT ARE YOU SUGGESTING, BOUTON? I'LL SHOW YOU, MARY, VALERIE 23? NO, MARY 25, NAMED AFTER THE FAMOUS NANNY IN THE MOVIES, WHAT I AM SUGGESTING, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, IS THAT WE REACTIVATE THE MARY 25 PROGRAM, INORGANIC CHILD CARE PROJECT? THAT'S WHA YOUR DEPARTMENT'S BEEN WORKING ON? HAVE YOU LOST YOUR MIND? THERE'S A REASON THAT PROJEC WAS SHELVED, WE WOULD RATHER NOT HAVE ANOTHER VALERIE 23 INCIDENT, THIS TIME THE ROBO WOULD KILL THE KIDS, WE PREFER TO CALL THEM INORGANICS, ,, AND VALERIE 23 NEVER KILLED ANYONE, SHE WAS CREATED TO BE A COMPANION, I'M REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO OUR TIME TOGETHER, I THINK WE HAVE MUCH IN COMMON, CHARLIE TELLS ME YOU ENJOY OPERA, I LOVE OPERA, I HEAR LA BOHEME'S IN TOWN, MAYBE SHE DIDN' ACTUALLY KILL ANYONE, SHE CAME DAMN CLOSE, FRANK HELLNER'S GIRLFRIEND WOULD BE DEAD IF HE HADN' SHORT CIRCUITED THE ROBOT, VALERIE, I THINK YOU MAY HAVE REBROKEN MY BACK, DARLING? I DIDN'T MEAN TO HURT YOU, THE INORGANICS JUST NEED TO BE REPURPOSED, IT'S A SIMPLE MATTER OF PROGRAMMING, VALERIE 23 WAS PROGRAMMED TO MAINTAIN A STRONG RELATIONSHIP NO MATTER WHAT, A FUZZY CONCEPT AT BEST, IT'S UNDERSTANDABLE HOW IT COULD GO WRONG, MARY, TELL THEM WHA YOUR PROGRAMMING IS, I'M PROGRAMMED ONLY TO PROTECT AND CARE FOR THE CHILDREN UNDER MY SUPERVISION, WHICH MEANS THE ONLY PERSON SHE MIGHT HUR IS A KIDNAPPER OR A CHILD MOLESTER, OR THE KIDS THEMSELVES, NOT WITH THE PROGRAMMING WE'RE DEVELOPING, LET ME DEMONSTRATE, MARY, YOU UNDERSTAND THAT THIS IS JUST A SIMULATION, YOU ARE TO ACT AS IF THIS DOLL IS A REAL CHILD, YES, I UNDERSTAND, GOOD, LET ME INTRODUCE A PROFESSIONAL BOXER, VINCE SCOBARI, TODAY VINCE WILL BE PLAYING THE ROLE OF A CHILD ABDUCTOR, VINCE, MARY, LOOKS LIKE MARY WOULD BE NO MATCH FOR HIM, THINK AGAIN, I'M SORRY, I CANNOT ALLOW YOU TO APPROACH THE CHILD, OKAY, MARY, YOU CAN RELEASE HIM, BY THE WAY, YOU'LL NOTICE SHE WASN' HURTING HIM IN ANY WAY, SHE HAS THREE FAILSAFES TO PREVENT HER FROM HURTING ANYONE, IMPRESSIVE, THANK YOU, THIS, OF COURSE, WAS JUST A SIMULATION, HOWEVER, IN A REAL EMERGENCY, MARY IS CONNECTED TO THE TELEPHONE BY A CORDLESS TRANSMITTER PROGRAMMED TO AUTO DIAL FIRST 9-1-1 AND THEN THE PARENTS, SHE'S ALSO TRAINED IN CPR AND MANY OTHER MEDICAL PROCEDURES, ANY QUESTIONS? DOES IT RUN ON THE SAME POWER PRINCIPLES AS VALERIE 23? BURNING FOOD FOR FUEL, SLEEP MODE, ET CETERA? YES, SHE BURNS FOOD FOR FUEL, AND EACH PARENT IS EQUIPPED WITH A REMOTE CONTROL TO PUT HER INTO SLEEP MODE AT ANY TIME, ANOTHER FAILSAFE TO ENSURE THAT NOTHING CAN GO WRONG, SO WHY DID YOU MAKE HER SO MUCH LIKE 23, SO, UH, SEXY? MY TEAM OF ENGINEERS LED BY MELBURN ROSS ADAPTED THE SECOND LEVEL PROTOTYPE FROM THE VALERIE 23 PROJECT, THESE UNITS HAPPEN TO BE BUILT ALREADY THIS WAY AND WITH THIS APPEARANCE, YOU'RE ASKING US TO GO OUT ON A DANGEROUS LIMB TO TEST THIS IN THE FIELD, IF A CHILD WAS HURT, IT COULD BE THE END OF THIS COMPANY, I'M SORRY, I CAN'T LET THAT HAPPEN, MRS, JANUS, FORGET IT, BOUTON, MRS, JANUS, WAIT, WHAT IF I TELL YOU THAT I'M WILLING TO FIELD TES THE MARY 25 ON MY OWN CHILDREN? ( Control Voice ) THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH YOUR TELEVISION, DO NOT ATTEMPT TO ADJUS THE PICTURE, WE ARE NOW CONTROLLING THE TRANSMISSION, WE CONTROL THE HORIZONTAL, AND THE VERTICAL, WE CAN DELUGE YOU WITH A THOUSAND CHANNELS OR EXPAND ONE SINGLE IMAGE TO CRYSTAL CLARITY, ,, AND BEYOND, WE CAN SHAPE YOUR VISION TO ANYTHING OUR IMAGINATION CAN CONCEIVE, FOR THE NEXT HOUR, WE WILL CONTROL ALL THAT YOU SEE AND HEAR, ( ) YOU ARE ABOUT TO EXPERIENCE THE AWE AND MYSTERY WHICH REACHES FROM THE DEEPEST INNER MIND TO THE OUTER LIMITS, OUR CHILDREN NEED PROTECTING FROM MUCH MORE THAN PHYSICAL HARM, JUST AS THREATENING TO THE FRAGILE CHILD ARE THE DANGERS OF THE MIND AND THE DANGERS OF THE HEART, YOU'RE HOME EARLY, I WANTED TO BE HERE WHEN YOU GOT HOME, HOW'D YOUR PRESENTATION GO TODAY? IT WENT OKAY, BUT THERE WAS RESISTANCE BECAUSE OF VALERIE, YOU KNEW THAT WAS GOING TO BE A PROBLEM, THEY WEREN'T GOING TO LET ME FIELD TEST IT, THE PROJECT WAS DYING RIGHT THERE, SO THEY KILLED YOUR PROJECT?
