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.
