  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (8)

    • Dr. Smith: Don't you ever stop to think? This is a complex game. One must look before one leaps.
      Robot: Samuel Butler, 1600-1680. "And look before you err you leap. For as you sow, ye are like to reap."
      Dr. Smith: Sometimes I wonder about you. If I didn't know better, I'd think some form of morality was accidentally programmed into you.

    • Dr. Smith: There, there, my boy. You must learn to take your misfortunes like a man. What are any of us but expendable pawns in this great cosmic game of chess?
      Will: I'm trying, Colonel Smith.
      Dr. Smith: Good boy.

    • Dr. Smith: I think its safe to say that the two of us now constitute a voting majority.
      Robot: I do not vote. I am not programmed for free choice.
      Dr. Smith: Don't worry about it. It's vastly overrated.

    • Dr. Smith: Since the others serve no purpose, they must be liquidated. When we have learned what we need to know from Major West, he will be liquidated as well. With me so far?
      Robot: Affirmative. Destroy everyone.
      Dr. Smith: Well, now, that's... hardly a delicate way of parting it. I prefer the term "eliminate." It's so much tidier.
      Robot: "Eliminate" means "destroy."
      Dr. Smith: Have it your way.

    • Dr. Smith: Robinson alive? Impossible. But no matter. It may actually make it easier for them to believe in my sudden reformation. Watch and learn. St. Zachary the First.
