Rumble Announcer 1: Robot Rumble is back and it's going to be more troubling than ever!
Rumble Announcer 2: We've got new gears, increased battery life, and added pain circuits so the robots will feel every drill bit and saw tooth.
Rumble Announcer 1: And we're going to be auditioning fan-built bots here in Springfield next week!
Rumble Announcer 2: Get those circular saw blades from the garage and wake your dads up from their naps! You could be the next Robot Rumble Star!
Bart: Hey Homer, how would you like to spend some time together where I pretend to appreciate and respect you?
Homer: Hmm, there's a first time for everything. But I'm busy, so no.
Bart: BUT DAD!
Lisa: I thought it was very sweet the way you dressed up as Bart's robot, Chief Knockahomer, and fought in the Robot Rumble for him before so he wouldn't think you're a failure as a father.
Homer: Yeah, but those other robots almost killed me! And that was before I would have to add a concussion circuit.
Lisa: Dad, you were already getting concussions when you fought before.
Bart: Yeah, now the robots can get ‘em too, so it's finally a fair fight!
Homer: Oooh, I do like a fair fight…

Task: Make Bart Try to Talk Homer Into Fighting Again
Time: 6s
Location: Simpson House
Task: Make Homer Consider Fighting Again
Time: 6s

Rumble Announcer 1: One last thing I should mention is that the robots are going to be way more stabby, too!
Rumble Announcer 2: They're going to stab harder, faster, and deeper...and like it more!
Homer: You're on your own, boy!
Bart: Aw man! What am I gonna do now?
Lisa: Maybe there's a way you can still bring Chief Knockahomer back to "life"…

Lisa: You know, Database and those guys are into robots. I bet they could help you turn Chief Knockahomer into a real robot this time.
Bart: Aw man, the nerds? I hate hanging around those guys. They smell weird. I can't put my finger on what it is.
Lisa: We prefer the term Academic-Americans, and that smell is fear.
Bart: Fear of what?
Lisa: Bullies, B's on tests, bench-warming splinters, and that's just the Bs.
Bart: The list is alphabetical?
Lisa: Alphanumerical, actually. It's a clever system combining alphabetical order with Scrabble point values...
Bart: You're being boring!
Lisa: Amazing. That was the next fear on the list!
Bart: How can we find these Nerdulonic-Americans and see if they'll help us build a rumble-ready robot?
Lisa: Just follow your nose!
Lisa: You weren't wrong about the smell.

Bart: Right, and you timing me wasn't weird at all. So did you find the nerds?
Lisa: No, but I do have one last place to try…

Lisa: And here we are!
Bart: Prodigy Barn? What is this, Sheets, Shirts & Sundries for nerds?
Lisa: Do you want a functional robot or not? Look, you see? They're already working on robots now.
Cosine Tangent: Indeed we are! Observe: the new pinnacle in robot technology!
Bart: It's just walking. That's lame.
Database: While clutching its textbooks to its chest in classic nerd style — and avoiding eye contact in a range of 360 degrees!
Lewis Clark: And look what happens when you give it a "flat tire": it auto-cringes, rights itself, and mumbles an apology!
Martin: Suck eggs, Boston Dynamics!
Bart: LAME.
Bart: But you know what's cool? Robots that can fight!
Martin: *gasp* But building fighting robots would violate the code of robot ethics we all swore to uphold!
Cosine Tangent: Yes, we've found that the use of violence inevitably results in said violence being used on us.
Bart: Right. And you all must have signed this lame code of ethics AFTER you helped me build the Wedgie-Matic 6000.
Lewis Clark: I knew that would come back to bite us.

Martin: "Duke! We are your uncles!"
Bart: Fine!

Mr. Burns: I hear that these "scrapping automatons" are all the rage about town!
Smithers: Well, yes sir. With the plebeians. But don't you think you're above that?
Mr. Burns: Piffle! Mechanical pugilists are a time-honored tradition. I myself went three rounds against a Pneumatic Irishman while I was at Yale.
Mr. Burns: Afterwards, we sang the night away at Morries and he stole my sweater.
Mr. Burns: I must acquire a mechano-bot capable of teaching these Stove-pipe Stovers who's Johnny on the Quad!
Smithers: Anticipating your every Dickensian whim as ever, I have already purchased one and here it is!
Homer: I got your thingy here...
Mr. Burns: Smithers, that slap-dash simulacrum is devoid of even the slightest semblance of humanity!
Smithers: That's Homer Simpson, one of your...
Mr. Burns: Yes, yes, we've had quite enough of that one haven't we?
Smithers: Yes, sir. Your robot is the mechanical bear he's pushing.
Mr. Burns: Ah, so just a robot bear, you say?
Smithers: It is the most fearsome killer robot on the face of the earth, sir.
Mr. Burns: And yet I'm disappointed. Curious.
Mr. Burns: Have him put it in the corner, where it will remind me of my disappointment in you, Smithers.
Homer: I just need you to sign here, here, and intial here.
Mr. Burns: Why is it coming towards us?
Homer: Maybe I shouldn't have used the controller as a clipboard.

Cosine Tangent: What? How?
Kearney: They sell them now at the Blazing Topic store in the outlet mall.
Dolph: Across from the anime t-shirts, next to the lame 70s bands t-shirts.
Nelson: Mine pounds nerds for lunch money.
Database: Which makes it indistinguishable from a human bully.

Martin: Revenge IS a classic motivator…

Martin: We're almost finished constructing your metallic myrmidon — now we just need a CPU to manage its higher cognitive functions.
Bart: What?
Database: Your metal fighting thingy needs a computer brain thingy.
Bart: Oh, that makes sense. How about this old myPod Shuffle?
Lewis Clark: Wait, you expect us to build a sophisticated combat AI into outdated Mapple Computers technology?
