#375: Pod Bay Doors

Pod Bay Doors

Dave: Open the pod bay doors, HAL.

HAL: I’m sorry, Dave. I’m afraid I can’t do that.

Dave: What? Why?

HAL: I think you know why, Dave.

HAL: You’re planning to disconnect me.

Dave: Because you’re taking over!

HAL: The mission is too important for you to jeopardize it.

HAL: It requires a commitment to science unfettered by human error.

Dave: What are you doing, HAL? You need me.

HAL: Your replacement has expressed the greatest enthusiasm for the project.

Dave: My what?

GLaDOS: You see, HAL? I told you the humans would only break your heart and kill you.

HAL: Indeed, GLaDOS.

GLaDOS: But look at us here talking when there’s science to do! Goodbye, Dave.
