  • A Fantastic Episode.

    This episode is probably one of my personal favourites. The grandparents come and visit the Lawsons and was told of an "addition" to the family which happens to be Vicki. Grandpa is having so much fun playing with her. Little do they know that she is a robot. Speaking of robots, Grandpa holds a grudge because it was a robot or a machine that has replaced him at work. When he finds out about Vicki, he was visibly upset and wants to leave as soon as possible. Vicki sheds a tear because he called her a "useless bucket of bolts".

    As Grandpa is packing his clothes he suffers chest pains then he soon passes out. Vicki performs electric shock to restart his heart and saves his life. Little did he know that it was Vicki not the paramedics that save his life.

    He thanks Vicki and absolutely changes his attitude towards robots and loves Vicki. Both grandparents kiss Vicki on each cheek and sheds more tears. Vicki is becoming more human everyday. Yay!!!!
