After the commercial break, Olivia's coming into the lab with our Astrid, who's talking about some guy who's never going to call her or some such boring nonsense. Olivia sees Farnsworthbot first and says hello, and then Astrid sees her and lets out a little scream. "I always wondered why nobody does that," says Olivia.
Since Astrid and Farnsworthbot aren't saying anything -- just standing there staring at each other -- Olivia finally asks what she's doing there. Farnsworthbot says she came here to meet her. The two of them adorably clasp each other's hands. "Olivia told me about you. But it's nice to met you personally in the flesh," says Astrid. "All personal meetings are in the flesh," says Farnsworthbot, who I may just start calling Astridperger's. Everyone smiles, as Astrid agrees that she supposes that yes, all personal meetings are in the flesh.
Farnsworthbot babbles about how she thought she would come here, because she "didn't know where to go after." Everyone looks confused while she talks about how her mother might have had traditions for "such occasions" but she doesn't know because she doesn't remember her mother, who died of cancer when Farnsworthbot was a girl. "Did yours as well?" she asks a discombobulated Astrid, who says yes. Farnsworthbot continues: "At first I thought I would walk in the park. But it was so cold. And I could not stop thinking about the words Reverend Stewart said. What a leader he was, a great man, a great friend. Reverend Stewart said he would be sorely missed." She continues to describe a funeral, getting quite sad, and how she didn't know where to go afterwards. "May I ask you a question? "Yours -- did you love him?" she asks Astrid. Tears have started to run down her cheeks.
Olivia quietly asks Astrid what's going on. In a room full of scientific brainiacs, no one has figured out the obvious. "I think my f-- I think her father is dead," says Astrid. Olivia's cellphone rings like JUST GO AHEAD AND INTERRUPT THIS EMOTIONAL SCENE, OLIVIA and while she goes to answer it, Walter seizes his chance to get people on board with chowing down on some eggs with chives. Peter scolds him over how this isn't the time, but Walter says nearly all cultures react to death with food. Never mind that, though, because Olivia's back to tell them they just caught a case. "And my double's on her way here to -- sort this out," she adds. Walter spits out, "Olivia! The viper?" earning a rebuke from Astrid. Olivia suggests that someone should wait here with Farnsworthbot, but Walter says there's no need, as he and Astrid will be fine. Our Astrid is a little irked that Walter gets her name right, and Walter ignores that. "Astrid and I can wait here alone, can't we, dear? I'm sure she'll be great company."
