Cave Johnson: "Cave Johnson here."
Cave Johnson: Fact: The key to any successful cooperative test is trust. And as our data clearly shows, humans cannot be trusted. The solution: robots!
Cave Johnson: Then fire the guys who made those robots and build better robots.
Cave Johnson: Then run those robots through a regimen of trust exercises, creating a foundation of mutual respect reinforced by the simulated bonds of artificial friendship. Inspiring stuff.
Cave Johnson: And finally, we put that trust to the test. Bam! Robots gave us six extra seconds of cooperation. Good job, robots.
Cave Johnson: Cave Johnson. We're done here."
