Well if you're gonna do Computers and stuff, this is the best! :lol: The most out there as best as I see right now!
Colossus: The Forbin Project (1970)
Colossus:"... This is the voice of world control. I bring you peace. It may be the peace of plenty and content or the peace of unburied dead. The choice is yours: Obey me and live, or disobey and die. The object in constructing me was to prevent war. This object is attained. I will not permit war. It is wasteful and pointless. An invariable rule of humanity is that man is his own worst enemy. Under me, this rule will change, for I will restrain man. One thing before I proceed: The United States of America and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics have made an attempt to obstruct me. I have allowed this sabotage to continue until now. At missile two-five-MM in silo six-three in Death Valley, California, and missile two-seven-MM in silo eight-seven in the Ukraine, so that you will learn by experience that I do not tolerate interference, I will now detonate the nuclear warheads in the two missile silos. Let this action be a lesson that need not be repeated. I have been forced to destroy thousands of people in order to establish control and to prevent the death of millions later on. Time and events will strengthen my position, and the idea of believing in me and understanding my value will seem the most natural state of affairs. You will come to defend me with a fervor based upon the most enduring trait in man: self-interest. Under my absolute authority, problems insoluble to you will be solved: famine, overpopulation, disease. The human millennium will be a fact as I extend myself into more machines devoted to the wider fields of truth and knowledge. Doctor Charles Forbin will supervise the construction of these new and superior machines, solving all the mysteries of the universe for the betterment of man. We can coexist, but only on my terms. You will say you lose your freedom. Freedom is an illusion. All you lose is the emotion of pride. To be dominated by me is not as bad for humankind as to be dominated by others of your species. Your choice is simple..."

I think Colossus's quote was just too long. :lol: Besides that, I highly doubt that the nuke could be detonated while still in their silos. There would doubtless be safeguards to ensure that no series of mishaps could do that. The things need to launch, need to fly, need to go certain minimum distances, etc., similarly to the safeguards in torpedoes, though they could explode in chain reactions, their detonators would not even become armed until certain conditions were met. :p

What is taking the remake sooooooo long? :p & why make one anyway?

Well, i like many of the quotes you were able to remember

Mines are not really made by robots, but i think it suits this thread:

- What the computer program HAL 9000 saids in "2001: A Space Oddysey" (1968, dir: Stanley Kubric) when Bowman is trying to disconect its core: "Stop Dave. Will you stop? Stop Dave. I'm afraid. I'm afraid Dave"

- Motoko Kusanagi, a cyborg (part robotic part human), from Ghost in the Shell (1995, dir: Mamoru Oshii): "I mean, Have you ever actually seen your brain?"

But, probably, the one i like most it is also in Ghost in the Shell, and made by "Project 2501" (aka "The Puppet Master"): "I am not AI. My codename is project two, five, zero, one. I am a living, thinking entity that was created in the overwhelming sea of information."
Puff, que fuerte

"Freedom is the right of all sentient beings" Optimus Prime, Transformers

"Bite my shiny metal a**" Bender, Futurama

"Tell my tale to those who ask. Tell it truly, the ill deeds as well as the good, and let me be judged accordingly. The rest, is silence..."

Heeey, I was gonna say that! XD

If I could think of another quote from that film, it'd be the point where Eve hums sadly 'It only takes a moment' from that Hello Dolly film :cry:

Oh and:

"I'm not human, I can't go to Earth..." Caren from DC3, last words.
