Why do you think Lanning's hologram would've called me

Detective Del Spooner:
Why do you think Lanning's hologram would've called me?
Lawrence Robertson:
Well, holograms are just simple programs designed to give the impression of intelligence. Apparently this one was programmed to call you upon his suicide.
Detective Del Spooner:
Death.
Lawrence Robertson:
I'm sorry?
Detective Del Spooner:
The hologram. It was programmed to call me in the event of Dr. Lanning's death.
Lawrence Robertson:
Yeah, suicide is a type of death, detective.

Why do you think Lanning's hologram

A really big week
for you folks around here.

- 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.

- That would be the fade-out.
Yes. I suppose your father
lost his job to a robot.
