    • John: I created... recreated my family. I reprogrammed the new ones with all the memories of what they had been, what they could still become. And now they are my family. Wilder: You've been living with androids for 20 years. John: With memories. My memories. In the end, that's all anybody has.

    • Cora: He told us this would happen one day. But he didn't want us ever to feel sad or cry. He said, "The worse thing for anyone is to know how to be lonely, sad, or cry." So he didn't teach us.
