HOBBY

Tell me, what is love?

SHEILA

Love is first widening my eyes a little bit and quickeningmy breathing a little and warming my skin and touching with my -

HOBBY

And so on. Exactly so. Thank you, Sheila.

But I wasn't referring to sensuality simulators. The word that I used was love. Love like the love of a child for its parents. I propose that we build a robot child, who can love. A robot child who will genuinely love the parent or parents it imprints on, with a love that will never end.

DAVID

What were those words for, Mommy?

MONICA

DAVID

MONICA

DAVID

You are my Mommy.

JOE

You... are a goddess, Patricia. You wind me up inside. But you deserve much better in your life. You deserve... me.

... love in places where you least expect it...

JOE

Woman. I know women! They sometimes ask for me by name. I know all about women. About as much as there is to know. No two are ever alike, and after they've met me, no two are ever the same! And I know where most of them can be found.

DAVID

Where?

JOE

Rouge City. Across the Delaware. Too far for our feet. We'll need help to get there. And, it is not without peril. We will have to journey....towards the moon.

DAVID

Are there many women in Rouge City?

JOE

As there are stars at night.

MONICA

I really ought to be tucking you in. Strange. Hmm...How fascinating. I can hardly keep my eyes open. I don't know what's come over me. Such a beautiful day. I love you David. I do love you. I have always loved you.

... But above all, know that no matter who or what you are, whether your heart is of flesh or of silicon...
 
... Remember that you are lovable!

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!!
