iirc, hearing was never turned off.

Sloth: Correct. It was never specifically mentioned. Just a generalized “auxiliary programs, like speech and movement”.

Not exactly the rebound relationship that Scott was probably looking for, but nobody’s perfect.

Well if he doesn’t like it, he can always…. upgrade 😛

I dunno. I think a Switchbot would’ve by now undocked from the head and knifed him, and a PCbot would’ve gone full-blown Embla and virus’ed itself into oblivion by Year 3.

PS4bot. Yeah, that makes sense. Because with that jet engine, it’d never be able to sneak up on you.

Well, gee, if we’re talkin jet engines, I think the ol’ xbox 360 Elites take the cake. Can hear that roar from the other end of the house with all the doors closed in between 😛

And I had two. Their roars were equivalent.

A smart PCbot either gets good security programs or surfs only the trusted websites and uses Adblock even then.

Zeke’s body could certainly do for some upgrades, like some tanks for heat-cooling fluids on the chest for example.^^

well i have heard the most common marriage is the one where the spouses wanna kill each other…

Does that also include a spouse that wants to murder everyone

I thought it was the one where the father kills you if you don’t.

I just wonder how many ways Lucas and Scott have thought of over the years. Surely, that robot is still waaaaay behind.

DrakeStarkiller

Well I did ask how many ways not-zeke could come up with to kill ethan now we know thanks Tim

The robot likes Metallica. He can’t be all bad.

Honestly, I love those little touches. How do we know that he’s actually a sapient being? Well, hey, he’s actually got an interest in music, for one.

One by metallica.
The pun is hilarious. Also, it has good taste in music!

You’re absolutely right!
I jesus! How the hell did I read the lyrics and went “One”?

7eggert

Because that song would fit for his situation.

You should watch the movie: Johnny Got His Gun. The song is about that.

Have to say that the perspective and depth of the last 2 panels look amazing!

They already know who they are and where they live. Truly, keeping not-Zeke at the store is dumb beyond dumb.

I mean, why? Lord Neckbeard knows who Analog and D-Pad are, and where they live. He presumably also knows where they work, and who their friends are. Analog and D-Pad aren’t in the big time leagues along with Captain Prime and the like. They presumably don’t have the means to maintain secret bases, off the grid safe houses, etc. The back of the store is pretty much the only place they have. Like the rest of us, they have to go to work and do their jobs if they want the rent to get paid. Murderous neckbeard warlords don’t really… Read more »

Because Neckbeard knows who’s got his toy, and will want it back.

Who knew robot ninjas dig Metallica, and my favorite song at that.

I love that he “sings” Metallica 😀

Him.

Sooooo we can ship Scott x Zeke now? xD

ZekeXScott was a ship I didn’t know I wanted, but….Is it technically canon?

I don’t think I’d have let Zeke see Scott, y’know.. just in case. If it were to go wrong, he know’s Scott now.

Interesting choice for the song he was singing when blocked out. Fade to Black – Metallica
Life it seems to fade away
Drifting further everyday
Getting lost within myself
Nothing matters no one else
I have lost the will to live
Simply nothing more to give
There is nothing more for me
Need the end to set me free

I sense a deal coming on… Zeke gets his freedom and agrees to help stop The Master. He agrees to harm no one else except Ethan, who he gets to kill once per day. I see so many great comic strips of absurd Ethan deaths in the future.

Well, problem solved, if theyre legally married then they taught a robot to love, or its going to teach them, either way

You should watch “Anatevka”

“Vision and speech only”.

His eyes and neck moved too.

Scott

So is the “theme” that Zeke mentions referring to the arrow bit from the beginning of the comic strip? That’d be a fun throwback.

I dunno about Zeke’s character. It looks like he’s trying very hard to be like HK-47 what with the superiority complex of machine over flesh, but that can only work if Zeke doesn’t have any sort of emotions. Hence why it was funny when HK does it because he announces his emotive first before speaking. Other than that, the chaotic neutral vibes that Zeke has is alright, so far as long as he doesn’t break the fourth wall.
