Newscaster:
Scotland Yard

is still refusing to comment

on whether last week's bombing

of London's

Parliament Buildings

may have been the work

of N IA terrorists.

Fortunately,

due to the installation

of a new Yamashta

security system,

the damage was superficial,

owing to the fact...

How many times

have I told you?

You're here

to work, not watch.

Table six

needs bread.

Oh, do you have the 1 961

Quinta do Lisboa?

That's a wonderful port.

Well, it's a celebration.

What you've done

this quarter

is an absolute miracle.

Not everyone thinks so.

Okay, it's time.

Okay, his data's in.

Am I sure?

Yes, I'm sure !

Ross, you're great,

Ha ha !

No, really, is it safe

in Barbados now?

It's triangulating.

They must've left

the restaurant.

It cost us

half a billion dollars

to squeeze that scum

off that island.

Well, not all of them,

though.

You have to have

some caddies.

I swear to God,

if this doesn't work,

I'm gonna--

Enjoy your vacation,

Eisner.

( blast )

( screams )

Robot voice:

Good morning.

Sir, can you hear me?

It's 9:
1 5 a.m.,

and this is your seventh

wake-up call.

F*** off.

You have opted to snooze

six times.

Go away.

The snooze limit is 1 0.

Come on, give it

a break, George.

Do you wish to snooze?

The weather forecast

in N ew York City

is sunny and fair

- with a predicted high--

- Shut up. Quit.

and a low this evening

of 58.

Go away.

- Ah. Off!

- Do you wi--

Good morning, George.

You still there?

Yes, Mr. Toffler.

All right. You were upgraded

last night, George.

- It's test time. Ahem !

- Okay, Mr. Toffler.

- I would like my coffee strong.

- Strong.

Bathroom light on setting,

- dim.

- Dim.

Shower pressure pulsating,

temperature normal.

Specify normal.

Just do it, George.

Just do it.

It's the usual--

Would you say please,

pal, please?

Specify it.

Oh, boy.

So late.

You know, George...

I do not know

what is worse;

you or the people

who try to fix you.

Shall I return

to my defaults?

No. No, no, no.

No defaults.

I love you, George.

I'll always love you.

N ever change.

Again, at least 20 people dead

and dozens more remain buried.

And appearing today

for a third day

before the U S Senate

Oversight Committee

on Mind Transfer,

consumer advocate,

Madeline Renard.

Renard:
Apart from repeated

violations of the law,

Xchange is now

in the risky position

of policing itself.

Monopolies

are inherently unsafe

and we know that.

- H i, Madeline.

- Mind transfer

is a tremendous technology,

far too important

to be controlled

by a single company.

- I cannot stress...

- Give it a rest, Madeline.

Off!

Later, George.

You're late.

Mm-hmm.

Oh, oh. Tell me.

No, it's George.

I, uh, had him

upgraded yesterday.

H e is becoming tricky.

H e's, uh, trying

to run my life.

H e's completely

out of control.

Then reprogram it

and stop complaining.

Oh, gee, Ralpha.

With you around,

I can just deactivate

my entire therapy program.

I wouldn't.

Not before you've seen

the boss's message, anyway.

Play it.

Stuart, I need you

in my office now.

You're not here, are you?

Ahem !

Good morning, Josh.

What's up?

U h, why don't you tell him,

Mr. Lister?

No, that's Darren.

H e's my personal trainer.

H e puts my body

through its paces

once a week.

Josh.

That's you.

In that buff body.

And this is your trainer.

Darren.

You Xchange...

with your trainer?

Yeah. Well, why should I

bust my ass for good abs?

Let him do it.

I get more work done

that way.

This is very strange

to me, okay?

But it is your money, so...

If you wanna flit
