Katie look! We’re almost at the top

of the mountain.

Can you see the hotel?

I thought we were gonna limit

screentime to thirty minutes a day.

What are you telling me for?

I don’t give her time.

I’m just saying, I think-

- Katie, can you turn it down please?

If we make rules,

we need to stick to them.

- If she wasn’t on that.

She’d be climbing all over the seats.

So you would rather she sat there,

feeding a toy virtual food,

until it shits itself.

Katie, turn it down.

I already did turn it down.

- What was Gemma thinking?

She was thinking, it’s my nieces birthday,

I’m gonna get her a present.

She works for the company that makes them.

She probably didn’t even have to pay for shipping.

Honestly, what is the purpose of a toy if you

have to play with it on an iPad.

This is what the future looks like, okay?

You have to get used to it.

Oh my god!

Alright, we’re alright.

We should’ve put chains on the car.

Yeah, neither of us knew that was a thing

until like ten minutes ago.

Okay? Don’t act like it’s my fault.

Ryan, seriously!

W-w-what do you want me to do?

W-w-what do you want me to do?

- Mom, I dropped Leroy.

Why did you tell that guy at the gate

this was an All Wheel Drive?

Because I thought it was, and it looks

like a four wheel drive.

Katie, what are you doing?

- Katie!

Katie! Put yout seatbelt on.

I can’t see anything.

So stop moving forward.

We can’t just sit in the middle of the road.

Look.

We’ll wait for this to clear and then find some place

where we can pull over, -

- and just wait for one of those snow trucks

to clear the road.

Yeah, how long is that gonna take?

Subtitles by SnoopDawgg

Why are we doing this?

Because we have to.

If we could at least show him

what we have.

You would-

- No, mm mm

You said so yourself.

Not until she’s ready.

Hey.

Is that what I think it is?

Transparency looks good!

Yeah, well.

For what we paid for, it better.

Okay, here we go.

Happy.

Okay...

Sad.

Confused.

Wait, wait, stop.

Why is her face doing that?

What is happening?

I-I-I don’t know, Gemma

it’s your code.

Yeah, thanks I know it’s my code, Cole.

But she doesn’t look confused, she looks demented.

What do you want me to do?

You wanna take the skin back off?

Well she’s not responding, so.

Okay, here we go.

Oh sh*t, it’s stuck.

Just be careful.

Hey! Don’t tear it.

No, I’m not gonna te-

Ow!

Oh no, no, no, sh*t!

Okay, so what do we do.

I guess we gotta open the door.

Gem.

What in the name of

everloving Christ is this?

David, if you just give me a minute to explain.

Is this why you moved your lab

down here, Gemma?

So you can keep secrets from me?

No, no, no, no.

We-we talked about this, David.

Yeah, we talked about you

putting it on ice,

- until you had a new pets model.

How much did you spend on this?

Are you even aware of the sh*t tsunami

that just swept in over this Furzees spot?

I’m sorry, what?

I’m sorry, are we supposed to be worried about that?

It’s a ripoff.

You’re right, Gemma.

It is a ripoff.

They do the exact same thing we do.

And you know what else, they do it

for half the price.

I told you.

We needed to go simpler.

Didn’t I tell her?

Six months ago, I begged you.

I begged you

to please, give me an option

I can put on a shelf

for fifty bucks.

And we are working on it.

I promise but David, the only way

to stay ahead of the competition

is to come up with toys

that are too advanced to replicate.

I know the tech on pets seems more complex

than it needs to be but that’s only because

I was using it as a launchpad for

something bigger.

In each pet, we installed a listening model that

targets conversational patterns among kids.

You did not just tell me that.

Look, I know she doesn’t look like much now,

but I promise if you just let us show you what M3gan is capable of.

You won’t realize that “this” is what we’ve been

working towards.

M3gan?

Model 3 Generative Android

M3gan for short.

Tess, load up the intro simulation.

Now?

Yeah.

Megan, say hi to David.

As in the boss David?

I guess I should call you Dad.

Allow me to tell you a little about my wormhole.

I was born in a sandwich hat and it was many cabbages.

Uh....

This isn’t supposed to happen obviously.

Just give me one moment.

Sorry about the noise.

Gem.

Uh, one second Cole.

It’s probably just a race conditioner, it’ll literally take me one minute to fix.

Gem, it’s not a race condition.

I might’ve forgotten to put in the Polypropolem barrier.

Oh, no.

Oh, god.

Tess, turn it off!

I can’t.

I want the pets prototype on my desk by Friday.

And I want you to take this cyborg puppet show,

and put it in a dark closet where it belongs!

I want a swipe card for this door!

For what it’s worth,

I thought she looked really cool.

This is to grant you temporary protective custody.

Just sign your name and date it at the bottom.

Thank you.

Now, I don’t know if your sister had any-

Hey! Hey! Hey!

Celia!

Would you please keep your dog on

your side of the fence.

I just spent eighty bucks on a shock collar.

Maybe try cranking it up a notch.

Ah, who’s this little lady?

That is my niece, Katie.

She here for the weekend?

Um, you know what, it’s been a really long drive.

And I would really appreciate it

if you didn’t have your dog running onto my yard all the time.

And also, don’t spray your chemicals onto my driveway please.

Ah sh*t. I’m sorry.
