Happiness officer, this troubleshooter clearly is not happy with us trying to find something to arm ourselves against dirty communists.
Contnue EqO, how about another button combination?

Or some other two.
From what I get first and second buttons spawned bots? Third fried them and fourth did nothing?
Than we could try pressing fourth and on of the others? And Loki could assist since he is clearly bored.

Chip-R Places the BRRRZT-O-Matic in Loki's hands. "Here, press this button and this one, as per the instructions of the Tam Leader Loki-R" Chip-R Indicates the Click button and the PEEB Button that the Team Leader selected.

Actually, sir, only the first button spawned the bots. I think it has a list of bots it will cycle through creating, but the second button resets it.

Also, I recommend that we attempt to fix Mr. Scrubby during the course of our mission, as having a team mascot is highly beneficial for morale.

Hmm. Curious. We'll go with your explanation for now. Also since this device shut down MrScrubby, it probably can revive him. And more we understand about it the sooner can we revive him.

I have an INGENIOUS plan. I will put the BRRZT-O-Matic in Mr. Scrubby's claw, and then manually close her claw so it hits the buttons that Team Leader told me to press.

Whatever way that pleases you, but be quick and do not damage our equipment. Especially not FC favored experimental equipment.

I have a feeling but I'm not sure did we hear that clicking noise somewhere before? We did hear three beeps before warbot ruined our fun in R&D, but what about clicks? because so far all button have some sort of function except the click one.

Loki-R drops Mr. Scrubby's claw, and straightens up, saluting with whichever hand the BRRRZT-O-Matic isn't in. His face twists into a demented half-smile.

"SIR, TEAM LEADER, SIR! I WISH TO SUBMIT, SIR, THAT THE BEST AND MOST HYGIENIC COURSE OF ACTION AT THIS POINT, SIR, IS TO FORGET ABOUT THE BRRRZT-O-MATIC, SIR, AND FOCUS INSTEAD ON OUR PRIMARY MISSION OBJECTIVES, SIR; LOCATING COM-R-ADE, TRAVELLING TO ADE SECTOR, AND REPAIRING MR. SCRUBBY, SIR! I THEREFORE STRONGLY SUGGEST, SIR, THAT THE HAPPINESS OFFICER IMMEDIATELY HANDS ME THE BRRRZT-O-MATIC BOX, SIR!"

Request denied on the grounds that we need to protect our equipment and it is not your duty to carry such a valuable tool. But we are willing to spawn you another cleaner bot. A litle bably brother of MrScrubby?
Now unless somebody has any ideas as to how to press two buttons without zapping ourselves. EqO would you mind pressing the Summon Robot button a couple of times so we can see what else we can spawn.

"SIR, YOU MISUNDERSTAND ME, SIR! BUT THAT WAS NOT A REQUEST, SIR!"

I grab Diana-R by the throat, and poke the BRRRZT-O-Matic into her neck, dragging her away from the rest of the party to use as both a human shield and a hostage.

"NOW, SIR, TEAM LEADER, SIR, I DEMAND THAT YOU GIVE ME THE BRRRZT-O-MATIC BOX AND PROCEED WITH THE PRIMARY MISSION, SIR, OR I WILL TEST THE DEVICE TO ITS FULLEST EXTENT, SIR!"

Chip-R draws his weapon and aims at Loki-R and waits for the Team Leader to respond.

"I can't hand you the box. You have your hands full."

I think for a moment.

"You know, we really need some morale boosting right now. I think it's time for another song."

There was a happy cleaning bot
Mr. Scrubby was he
Who was like a beloved pet
Though we met just briefly

He loved to clean and comb at things
And make the complex bright
Scrubby was the best of bots
A super hygenic sight

But a button on the BRRRZT was pushed
And made his cleaning stop
Now he sits there motionless
Even when we give him a bop

But my sanitary friend
I ask you, don't lose heart
The story is not over yet
We are still at the start

Our Team Lead is the very best
A 'shooter team could want
And he will get us through this time
So let's have a detente

My Scrubby is not dead
For bots can never die
Friend Computer told me so
And computers never lie

So, good Loki, put your trust
In the one Computer chose
To lead us through all obstacles
Through all the highs and lows

Scrubby, he will be ok
You can take my word
Now why don't we get on with things
Before my rhymes start getting absurd

Demian Where is Mr Scurbby in relation to Loki? Somewhere to the side of Diana? Or behind her?

Stop right there traitorous scum. You are in clear breach of FC rules since you are threatening a Troubleshooter and are trying to steal our equipment that does not belong to you. Stand down and prepare to be terminated. Nobody harms my troops, only I ha . . . I mean nobody harms my troubleshooters.

Diana, I might be forced to fire at this scum, and I might harm MrScrubby, so fight Loki so I don't have to shoot.

Diana-R is just standing there,samming with fear,following Loki-R as he is slowly backing away from everyone.

You all get another round of (re)actions.

Chip-R presses forward keeping the distance between Diana-R and Loki-R Weapon still aimed carefully at Loki-R. "I can terminate the traitors Loki-R and Diana-R on your order, Team Leader."

Ever since Lily-R's incredibly sad song, Loki-R's half-smile is gone, and his bottom lip is very very wobbly.

"JUST... JUST PUSH THE BOX ACROSS THE FLOOR, LILY-R. JUST GIVE ME THE BOX, AND I CAN LET DIANA-R GO, OKAY?"

I will immediately release Diana-R, pick up the box, put the BRRRZT-O-Matic inside, and close it.

Chip-R takes his opening to attack while Loki-R bends over to pick up BRRRZT-O-Matic and puts it in the box. Chip-R attempts to do a flying tackle with the intent to push the gun into Loki-R's face. Chip-R is yelling as he attack's and it is not in any way pitiful whimper sound akin to someone panicking.
