Some army guy orders Robo to sort the Russians out.
- Tesladyne Headquarters, Empire State Building. October, 1961
|Colonel||Thank you for seeing me on such short notice.|
|Robo||The only way to get you people to stop calling me is to say "no" to someone's face. You're him.|
|Colonel||Robo, this... it's bad.|
|Robo||You know I'm done working for the military.|
|Colonel||The Russians have built a bomb.|
|Robo||So? Build five more. That's the "strategy" now, isn't it?|
|Colonel||It's not that simple. We estimate it's two hundred megatons, minimum. Enough to poison the atomsphere, ignite it, or siphon it into space.|
We're talking the whole atmosphere, Robo. It doesn't matter where it goes off, it will be the end of life as we know it.
|Robo||Why come to me with this?|
|Colonel||If we tell the Russians, they'll track down the agent who discovered these documents. If we send troops, it's an act of war. You have what we need...|
