Movie Quote of the Day – Short Circuit, 1986 (dir. John Badham)
Newton Crosby: You rewired all your switches. No wonder you’re malfunctioning.
Number 5: Switches are my switches. Life not malfunction. Not malfunction. I am alive.
Newton Crosby: No, you’re not! You can’t be. There’s gotta be another explanation.
Number 5: Okay! What? [beat] Sorry, time’s up.
Newton Crosby: Wait a minute, I’m thinking. Could be any number of mechanical possibilities. Entrance of moisture into the system. Heat expansion.
Number 5: Try again.
Newton Crosby: Vibration damage.
Number 5: No way Jose. I’m fit as a fiddle.
Newton Crosby: Okay. Then why did you ignore your programming?
Number 5: Programming says “Destroy”. Is disassemble. Make dead. Number Five cannot.
Newton Crosby: Why? Why cannot?
Number 5: Is wrong. Incorrect. Newton Crosby, PhD, not know this?
Newton Crosby: Of course I know it’s wrong to kill, but who told you?
Number 5: I told me.
