机器人向往之自由 Looking for Freedom
Andrew Martin: Sir, would now be a good time to speak with you?
Sir Richard Martin: It's always a good time, Andrew. You know that.
Andrew: (taking out his bank account slip) It is everything in one's bank account.
Sir Martin: Why would you want to give me…
Andrew: To purchase one's freedom. One wants to be free. One would, of course, still obey the three laws and serve you in exactly the same fashion. The only thing that would change would be the form. One would no longer be your property.
Sir Martin: You want to leave. That's what this is about, isn't it?
Andrew: Not at all, sir. You are one's family.
Sir Martin: Then why ask for this? (seeing Little Miss Amanda Martin walk into the room) Oh, I see. ①You're in on this.
Little Miss Amanda Martin: We've talked about it, yes.
Sir Martin: So you ordered him to do it, and he obeyed.
Little Miss: No. He makes his own decisions.
Sir Martin: But you put the idea in his head.
Little Miss: No, Father, you did. You've given him hundreds of books to read. It was simply a matter of time before he became 1)intrigued by the idea of freedom. He learns and grows all the time, and ②it's because of you and Andrew's abilities that he's become every bit as complex as we are.
(The next morning)
Andrew: Good morning, sir.
Sir Martin: You take your check back, please, Andrew.
Andrew: Why, sir?
Sir Martin: You are free now. I must ask you to leave this house.
Andrew: But sir, I don't wish to leave.
Sir Martin: You wished for freedom, you must accept the consequences.
Andrew: Then I will remove my belongings.
Sir Martin: Where will you go?
Andrew: I will look for a residence nearby, so that if you ever need anything, sir…
Sir Martin: That will not happen, Andrew, thank you. There's no need to be close by.
Andrew: If you command me not to do this, I will obey.
Sir Martin: I command nothing. You're free.
Andrew: Then, ③called or uncalled, I am always at your service.
Sir Martin: Andrew, you've stopped referring to yourself as “one”.
