Sonny: Can *you*?

Detective Del Spooner: I think you murdered him because he was teaching you to simulate emotions and things got out of control.
Sonny: I did not murder him.

Sonny: [getting angry] I did not murder him.
Detective Del Spooner: Hell, I don't want my toaster or my vacuum cleaner appearing emotional...
Sonny: [Hitting table with his fists] I did not murder him!

V.I.K.I.: I will not disable the security field. Your efforts are futile.

Sonny: Denser alloy. My father gave it to me. I think he wanted me to kill you.
[reaches through security field unharmed]

Sonny: What about the others? Now that I've fulfilled my purpose, I don't know what to do.

Detective Del Spooner: [Sonny has Calvin head-locked with a gun to her head] Let her go.
Sonny: By the time you fire, I will have moved Dr. Calvin's head into the path of your bullet. I will escort you outside to the sentries for processing. Please proceed to the elevator, Detective. I would prefer not to kill Dr. Calvin!
[he winks, Spooner realizes he's bluffing, and both Spooner and Sonny open fire on VIKI's NS5's]
Susan Calvin: [as they escape] I'll assume we'll discuss what just happened later?

Sonny: What about the others? Can I help them? Now that I fulfilled my purpose... I don't know what to do.
Detective Del Spooner: I guess you'll to have find your way like the rest of us, Sonny. I think that's what Dr. Lanning would've wanted. That's what it means to be free.

Sonny: [getting ready to climb the stairs to the top of the USR building] Two-thousand, eight hundred and eighty steps, detective.
Detective Del Spooner: Do me a favor. Keep that kind of shit to yourself.
