      Harriet: No sense in pretending you're not there. I hear breathing!
      Jamie: That little pest!

    • Jamie: Why can't I be alone? What do you think I'm gonna do? Dye my hair green? Cook my goldfish in the microwave?
      Ted: Those thoughts never crossed our minds.
      Joan: Until now.

    • Jamie: Mom, dad, you know that squeak Vicki had in her neck? Well, I fixed it. Watch, go ahead Vicki do it. (Vicki's head spins around)
      Joan: Oh Jamie, I wish you wouldn't do that.
      Jamie: Why?
      Joan: Well it must hurt her.
      Ted: Joanie, Joanie, honey a robot can't hurt and you've got to stop thinking of her as real child.
      Joan: I'll try, but it's not easy.
      Ted: Okay Vicki, go to your cabinet.
      Vicki: Go to my cabinet.
      Joan: Do we really have to keep her in that box? It's so dark in there. (Ted gives Joan a look to make her stop thinking of Vicki as a child) Okay, I'll try harder.

    • Ted: Okay, Vicki, get in your cabinet.
      Vicki: (warped voice) Get in my cabinet.
      Ted: Wait. Wait. Wait. Wait. Wait. Say that again.
      Vicki: (warped voice) Get in my cabinet.
      Ted: What's wrong with your voice?
      Vicki: (warped voice) My circuits are wet.
      Ted: (looks at Jamie suspiciously) Jamie?
      Jamie: Well...I sorta gave her a taste of my chocolate milkshake.
      Ted: How could you do such a dumb thing? And besides, you know how we feel about you having those sweets.
      Joan: (to Ted) Oh now, now, don't be too angry. Uh..look on the bright side,..uh..robots can't get cavities.
