Anyway, Sarah orders John and "the Tin Miss" to go to school and join her later at the chess tournament; John can't be absent, or he'll be "on their radar." Of course, he'd be in much less danger of being on anyone's "radar" if he DIDN'T SPEND ALL DAY AT A PUBLIC HIGH SCHOOL, but let's not split hairs. He asks for money for lunch, and Sarah hands him a brown paper bag instead. The fact that the future hopes of mankind rest on your shoulders doesn't mean I'm wasting money on chicken nuggets and Red Bull, young man.
At the tournament, which appears to be as much robot expo as chess tournament, an increasingly uneasy Sarah strolls around looking at the displays. A giddy Andy strolls up, thrilled that she showed up to see him in all his nerd-tastic glory. "God, I love robots," he says, having no idea that each word he says gets him closer to a bullet in the head. He's pretty terminally dorky, but at least it's in that endearing sense when people are so passionate about something. Like how I feel about booze!
Up they go to his hotel room, where he shows off Turk II, which is different from its predecessor in a few ways. It's more adaptable, less predictable, that kind of thing. Sarah says it sounds like it's more human than Turk I. Andy fails to catch the waves of nausea rolling off of Sarah, and offers the analogy that Turk I had matured into a brooding teenager, while Turk II is still a precocious child.
An older, bearded man strides into the room. Andy introduces him as Dmitri, but Dmitri's cell phone is apparently permanently welded to his ear, and he can barely be bothered to say hello. He does, however, take a moment to inform Andy that Sarah will never sleep with him. Never. Then he gets back on the phone and strides right out again. How does he know? Can he see the future? Is he FROM THE FUTURE? Andy says Dmitri's just wound up about the military contract. Sarah's all, who in the what now? And Andy explains that the winner gets a military contract. This is far more egregious than Andy's robot love, and I'm kind of surprised he ends the scene still alive.
