Storyline

Mulder and Scully are eating at an all night sushi restaurant, when Mulder walks into the kitchen to see the robots running the kitchen, an AI seems to run it all. When Mulder returns to his seat, Scully gets ready to pay, Mulder insists on buying and while paying one of the screens requests if they would like to tip the staff, which Mulder declines. The AI won't release his credit card. What follows is a slapstick of one misadventures after another until their lives are threatened as the AI is dropping not so subtle hints! Will Mulder and Scully learn from the AI or will it be too late? Written by Movie Dude

ONE OF THE BEST X-FILES EPISODES EVER

This episode was priceless! If ever I could relate to anything, it's when a machine or computer takes over and you, a human being, has to follow its lead. How many times have those user names and password prompt indicated that what I typed what invalid? How many times have I tried to select one item choice, and the website selected something totally different? The waiting on hold for a robot to argue with, the excessive menus in which we have to select from, it all makes you want to scream! There wasn't much dialog between Mulder and Scully, but this was one of the most witty and clever episodes ever. And the ending was perfect, two humans holding hands.
