ROSEBOT: What are you doing in there?
DIRK: Oh, nothing important.
DIRK: To the extent that anything that you or I do is even capable of being unimportant anymore.
DIRK: Which extent is admittedly teetering a few microns shy of jack dick right about now.
DIRK: The point is,
DIRK: Don't worry about it. I'm just doing a bit of housekeeping.
ROSEBOT: Well pardon me for interrupting a prior engagement. Don't let me get in the way of all the dusting you must be doing.
ROSEBOT: I just imagined you wearing an apron over your god tier outfit and almost felt my facial fuselage buckle in such a way as to approximate a fleeting smile.
DIRK: Fuck, you got me.
DIRK: Your uncanny Seer powers are at work once again.
DIRK: I'm just waiting here for an errant gust of wind to jostle my petticoats, unfortuitously exposing my undergarments to the lurid gaze of whatever prurient peeper might be watching.
DIRK: Don't look!! I cry in futile embarrassment. But the damage is done. My fragile anime purity has been shamelessly violated.
ROSEBOT: Ah yes, the animes. A bottomless resource of good-natured humor.
ROSEBOT: That ungodly noise of screeching metal you just heard was my titanium-reinforced thorax crumpling into a cartoonish posture of helpless mirth.
DIRK: Alright we get it you are literally a robot.
DIRK: No need to keep pointing it out every chance you can get. I used to get enough of this with the Auto-Responder.
ROSEBOT: I'm just playing along.
ROSEBOT: One of the fundamentals of bad science fiction is that any artificial beings must make their inorganic nature known at every juncture they can.
DIRK: Do overly precise and completely meaningless statistics that you pull out of your ass on the fly also count?
ROSEBOT: Oh absolutely.
ROSEBOT: That's one of the first things you just sort of spontaneously learn when being booted up.
ROSEBOT: For example, I've calculated that by making these remarks I have raised the base level of amusement in all my conversations by 36%.
DIRK: Well I don't personally find them very funny.
ROSEBOT: No, but I do.
ROSEBOT: It averages out, you see.
