    • Automan: For the first time, I realize what's been missing in my life.
      Walter: What's been missing?
      Automan: Lust, Walter. Passion. Ruthlessness. Deceit. I'm missing the struggle for life's most worthy goals - power and romance.
      Walter: What have I done?
      Automan: Choruses of angels. Midnight rendezvous. Burning desires!
      Walter: Yeah, yeah, Auto, Auto! I get the picture.
      Automan: Walter, I've been in your world for close to six months and I still haven't fallen in love!
      Walter: You don't understand. You're a hologram. You're not even real.
      Automan: Neither are the people in soap operas and they fall in love every twenty minutes!
