Flansburgh: Oh robot waiter!
Linnell: Yes. Yes. What is it?
Flansburgh: What's this robot doing in my soup?
Linnell: It looks like he's performing human tasks twice as well, because robots have no sense of fear.
Flansburgh: I don't get it.
Linnell: I've got another one.
Linnell: Why was six afraid of seven?
Flansburgh: I don't know, robot. Why was six afraid of seven?
