Susan Calvin:
I don't understand. Alfred wrote the Three Laws. Why would he build a robot that could break them?
Detective Del Spooner:
Hansel and Gretel.
Susan Calvin:
What?
Detective Del Spooner:
Two kids, lost in the forest. Leave behind a trail of bread crumbs.
Susan Calvin:
Why?
Detective Del Spooner:
To find their way home. How the hell did you grow up without reading Hansel and Gretel?
Susan Calvin:
Is that really relevant?
Detective Del Spooner:
Everything I'm trying to say to you is about Hansel and Gretel. You didn't read it, I'm talking to the wall.
Susan Calvin:
Okay. Okay.
Detective Del Spooner:
All right, look, just say Lanning was locked down so tight he couldn't get out a message. All he could do was leave me clues, like a trail of bread crumbs.
Susan Calvin:
Bread crumbs equals clues. Odd but fine. Clues leading where?
Detective Del Spooner:
I don't know, but I think I know where he left the next one. I think Lanning gave Sonny a way to keep secrets. I think the old man gave Sonny dreams.

Transcript:
You know, I-I should have, I suppose. I knew him 20 years. Alfred practically invented robotics. He wrote the Three Laws. But I guess brilliant people often have the most persuasive demons. - So, whatever I can do to help, just -- - Sugar. - I'm sorry? - For the coffee. Sugar? - Ah. - Oh, you thought I was calling you "sugar." - You're not that rich. - It's on the table. Thank you. Uh, when Lanning fell, he was holding the, uh -- the little green -- - The holographic projector. - Right, right. Why do you think Lanning's hologram would have called me? I assumed you knew him. Yeah, I knew him. Well, holograms are very simple programs. They're just pre-recorded responses, designed to give the impression of intelligence. And apparently this one was programmed to call you upon his suicide. - Death. - I'm sorry? The hologram. It was programmed to call me in the event of Lanning's death. Yeah. Suicide is a type of death, Detective. Look. Please don't misunderstand my impatience. No, no. Go, go, go. A really big week for you folks around here. - Yeah. - Gotta put a robot in every home. - Mm. - Look. This is- This is not what I do ... but I got an idea for one of your commercials. You could see a carpenter making a beautiful chair. Then one of your robots comes in and makes a better chair, twice as fast. - Mm-hmm. - And then you superimpose on the screen ... Shittin' on the little guy. - Ah. - That would be the fade-out. Yes. I suppose your father lost his job to a robot. Maybe you would have simply banned the Internet to keep the libraries open. Prejudice never shows much reason. No, you know, I suspect ... you simply don't like their kind. Yeah, you got a business to run around here. And the last thing you need, especially this week, is a dead guy in your lobby. But hell, seeing as how you got one, maybe I'll look around. Ask a few questions. Do the whole cop thing, you know? I'll send someone to escort you. Thank you very much.
