Hi. Ed Ramsey from Delos.

If there's anyone who doesn't know

what Delos is, well, as we've always said...

...Delos is the vacation

of the future, today.

At Delos you get your choice

of the vacation you want.

There's Medieval World, Roman World

and, of course, Westworld.

Let's talk to some people

who've been there.

Pardon me, sir. What is your name?

Gardner Lewis.

Just got back from Westworld.

Tell us how you liked it, Mr. Lewis.

When you played cowboys and Indians

as a kid, you'd point...

...go "bang, bang" and the other kid

would lie down and play dead.

Well, Westworld is the same thing, only...

only it's for real!

I shot six people!

Well, they weren't real people!

What Mr. Lewis means is

he shot six robots...

...scientifically programmed to look, act,

talk and even bleed just like humans do.

Isn't that right?

Well, they may have been robots.

I mean, I think they were robots.

I mean, I know they were robots!

Yes, the robots of Westworld are there

to serve you...

...and to give you the most unique

vacation experience of your life.

Thank you, sir.

And you, madam?


What is your name?

My name is Janet Lane,

and I was in Roman World.

What is the one thing that stands out

in your mind about Roman World?

Oh, well, I think it would be...

...the men!

I just feel marvelous! I mean...

...it's just a warm,

glowing place to be!

Thank you very much.

Oh, thank you very much!



- And you, sir?

- Yeah?

What is your name, sir?

Oh, I'm Ted Mann.

I'm a stockbroker from St. Louis.

And, which world did you

just come from, sir?

Oh, you're not going to believe this!

I've just been the sheriff of Westworld

for the last two weeks!

Did it seem real to you, sir?

It's the realest thing I've ever done!

I mean that!

- Thank you very much.

- Yeah.

And you, sir?

My name's Arthur Caine.

I've been in the castle.

I've had a couple of sword fights

and three jousts.

And I...

I married a beautiful princess.

Is that something you've

always dreamed of doing, sir?

All my life!

There were some of the comments

of people who've just returned from Delos.

Why don't you arrange...

...to take our Hovercraft to Medieval World,

Roman World and Westworld?

Was it worth $1,000 a day?


Contact us today, or see your travel agent.

Boy, have we got a vacation for you!

This is Delos Control to Station 3.

You are cleared on Vector 79, on 195...

We anticipate scanning

in about four and a half minutes.

I'm not worried at all. I'm just...

I'm just curious.

How much do they weigh?

Three or four pounds.

That heavy.

Do they have much of a kick?

A Colt.45?

Well, I never fired one before.

What about that thing

where you go like this over the gun?

- Fanning?

- Yeah.

- What about it?

- Is that hard to do?


The gunbelt, does it have those strings

to tie around your leg?

If that's the kind you want.

That's the kind I want. I think it's

probably better for quick draws, you know.

It all depends.

What kind of gunbelt did you have

the last time?

I had the one without the strings.

And you could draw fast?

Then maybe it doesn't matter after all.

The guns they give you are real guns?

Real guns.

That's incredible.

Give us a shift to 197...

...and take it down to Port 43.

Negative acceleration at 22.

So long as you maintain

passenger comfort.

Sigma-sigma was transferred

according to the log at 041.

The orientation on the resort

will now begin.

Please put on your earphones.

Don't you want to listen?

I heard it the last time.

...consists of three separate resort areas,
