I'll save this information for when my memory is working again. Then I can make a calm and rational decision on whether or not to panic.

A message in my pocket is the simplest way. It's also the most likely to be lost or sent through the wash.

I need a back up method. It's too bad I'm not human. Without fur, I could have written myself a note on my forehead.

No point in trying to find a communication terminal. I remember the receptionist saying the site is isolated from commnet.

So how did people send messages to each other before electronics?

I either need a smaller bottle or a bigger sink.

He's right. Management's been funny about that lately. Sorry. I can't deliver your letter.

Is his leg ready?

Pardon me? Oh. Let me take a look.

The weld smells cool enough. Pin in, connectors connected. Done.

You should put some duct tape on it. Repairs never look complete without duct tape.

The guard doesn't deliver. I need to write that down. Now, how am I going to get this letter sent to myself?

Maybe I can attach it to something that's already leaving the site? Something that has a good chance of getting through and a good chance of the letter being found and getting back to me?

Things were so much easier when I was a puppy. When i needed to hide something for later, I'd just bury it in the back yard.

Got it! I don't want to deal with those two robots again (especially the little one who's a jerk), but this should work!

If you won't leave the room, I'm going to turn you off and on. After you reboot you should follow my orders.

It must be nice to be a dog. When you get tired, you get to lie down and go to sleep right where you are.

Miss? Miss? You can't sleep here. There's a chair right out front. Miss? Why won't you wake up? Miss?

Ouch. Uhm, hi. You're the guard I met this morning.

Well, sleeping beauty, I wish I could say it was Prince Charming.

How did I get here? Was I… sleep walking?

It's in your notes. Please gather them up. Sam and Varroa are waiting for you.

You're… welcome? Oh. My short term to long term memory has been impaired.

That's a relief. Sleep walking would have been bad enough. Welding in my sleep would have sent my safety ratings right through the basement floor.

Wonderful! You found our wandering A.I.

I'm not happy with you. She's not a robot. She's a living being.

This remote turns her on and off! Her memory is short-circuited! As well as being plain wrong, this stuff could be adapted to humans.

Do I have to worry about this being tried on us next?

Oh, no. Never. You guys are union. We'd try it on contractors first.

Bye! We can find our way from here.

Thank you!

You okay?

I'm a bit disoriented. I don't know how I got here.

Do everything I say without question and you'll be fine.

I'm not that disoriented.

Have I talked to a researcher yet?

Not yet. Oh! Sticky notes! That's how you're getting around the memory block! May I see those?

Good clean lines. Very textbook. Yep, I can forge her handwriting.

“Give Varroa Jacobsoni a wedgie.” Who's Varroa Jacobsoni?

Doh! Details! Let me see your notes again, I need to do a rewrite.
