  • Quotes

    • Cutler: I've got Emerson right where I want her. And tomorrow, Judge Clancy is gonna find out that his choices are extremely limited. I'm about to push Constitutional protection to the point of absurdity.
      Adam: I was not aware that this hearing was intended to be a lesson in the absurd.
      Cutler: I can't expect you to see the beauty in this, but I'm gonna force that judge to put a talking mannequin, albeit a highly sophisticated one, on trial for murder.
      Adam: Is that how you really see me, Mr. Cutler? As a talking mannequin?
      Cutler: Your design and your construction are nothing short of genius, but even you must understand that you're basically a take-off on the thoughts and feelings that Dr. Link programmed into you. A man suffers, a man bleeds...a man has a soul.
      Adam: I could snap your neck as if it were a toothpick. In that sense you're right. I'm not like most men. But like most men, I choose not to.
      Cutler: Let me go.
      Adam: Why? Because I have respect for life. All life. Even that of a jaded attorney who wants to put a talking mannequin on trial to discredit the legal system. You don't know me, Mr. Cutler. You don't know anything about me. The thought that Dr. Link, my creator, my friend, is dead saddens me to no end. And the thought I may have killed him, even if by accident, is abhorrent to me. Do you understand? I do suffer! But, unlike most men, my face doesn't show my feelings. Now, please, leave me alone.
