Marc: Have you ever felt completely alone? Standing on the edge of things, so awkward, not daring to approach anyone? What if you could have one perfect friend who thinks you’re awesome, who can help you find friends and make it all easy?
Marc: [moviequotesandmore.com] But today, we take a huge leap from Bubble’s phones, and tablets, and watches to a whole new world of connection. And at its heart, my code. My algorithm for friendship. The code that drives your new best friend, the Bubble Bot!
Savannah: Wow, Barney. It’s your birthday. And you still didn’t get a B-Bot?
Barney: [thinking to himself] Thanks for breaking that down.
Miss Thomas: [to the students] Will you go talk to Barney? He loves rocks. He needs friends. It’s his birthday.
Barney: [thinking to himself] Kill me now.
Rich: [mockingly] Who’s your favorite movie star? The Rock?
Barney: Killer, Rich.
Donka: [moviequotesandmore.com] No one in Pudowski family have allergy.
Graham: What about Uncle Boris?
Donka: He was possessed. By a demon in a cashew.
Barney: No one does paper these days. They send messages with their B-Bots.
Graham: Really? You need a B-Bot to have a social life these days?
Barney: Yeah, dad. Kind of.
Graham: No. I don’t want you addicted to some device. You should be out there in the woods. Kicking around with a buddy. Get out there, Barn. Interact. You don’t want to spend your whole life glued to a…
[gets distracted as his phone chimes]
Donka: I throw in goat. Goat for a B-Bot. She real friend. And when you get bored of this one, you can eat her! Less waste, good for planet.
Donka: Three month wait? What is this? Stalinist Russia? I am not afraid of you, Bubble booble!
Ron: [after Graham buys him a B-Bot] Hi. Insert registered name. I am your, your, your, your… I am…
Barney: [referring to the sticker] My B-Bot. B-Bot. Look, my best friend out of the box?
Ron: I am, insert registered name’s best friend out of my box. Insert registered name is my best friend.
Barney: [moviequotesandmore.com] Wait! Where are you going? You’re supposed to stay within six feet of me!
Ron: Abu Dhabi. Addis Ababa. Amsterdam. Arizona.
[stops in the middle of the road and turns to Barney]
[suddenly a car crashes into Ron]
Savannah: Not on top now, Noah. Don’t focus on the negative. It’s very aging.
Ron: I now know everything about you. I know your underpants combust at a temperature of two hundred thirty-two degrees Fahrenheit. Seventeen degrees below the melting point of your inhalers. I know you have eleven socks, and four books detailing the life of Bill the Bus. Now, I’m your best friend out of the box, Absalom!
Barney: No! A friend does not go through your stuff, or burn it, or melt it, or dismember Mr. Bunky.
Barney: The B-Bot. There’s something wrong with it, Gran.
Donka: It look alright to me.
Barney: It’s not meant to do that!
Ron: I’m not meant to do that.
Donka: Just like all the others.
Donka: [as Ron tosses a knife near her] Maybe, turn it off and on again?
Donka: [moviequotesandmore.com] I fix it! Pudowskis make do and mend. Oh, if I just ram this up power outlet…
Barney: No! You’ll make it worse!
Donka: Oh, Barney. Once, I mend my own hernia with bread knife and vodka.
Barney: What am I going to do?
Donka: Take it outside. Have fun with him. You remember what Uncle Boris used to say? “The smart man can pickle anything, even a glove.”
Barney: The point being?
Donka: At least you’re not Uncle Boris. He crazy. Never the same after that cashew.
Barney: Look, I’m taking you back to the Bubble store. I have to swap you for a good one. No offense.
Ron: But according to the sticker, I am your best friend out of my box.
Barney: Listen, friendship is a two-way street, okay? I get to choose my friends, and I don’t choose you.
Rich: Bros, it’s pulling my head off!
Barney: Hey, no, no, no! You can’t pull his head off! We’ll get in trouble!
Ron: Okay, Absalom. I cannot pull his head off.
Barney: [moviequotesandmore.com] That was awesome, okay. But terrible, but awesome! I mean, you can’t hit people. Especially Rich Belcher. But, oh, man! You hit Rich Belcher! I don’t get it. B-Bots can’t hurt people. They have mega safety controls and stuff.
Ron: Incorrect. I have no mega safety controls and stuff. The settings have not been uploaded.
Barney: [referring to Ron] You can’t just take it. It’s mine!
Ron: I don’t even know his name.
Barney: Yes, you do! It’s Absalom.
Ron: Hi, Absalom.
Ron: Absalom, will crushing be fun?
Barney: [trying to rescue Ron from getting crushed] What are you doing?
Ron: A friend must stay within six feet. We’ll go to the crusher together.
Barney: No! Crushing is not fun! It means smushed, flattened. Think, think, think. Annihilated.
Ron: Annihilated. Not fun!
Ron: Hi, I am insane.
Ron: Are we having fun with me?
Barney: You bet!
Barney: [moviequotesandmore.com] I’m going to take you home, okay?
Ron: But you get to choose your friends. And you don’t choose me.
Barney: I do, okay. I choose you. I can fix you, like Gran said. And I’ll teach you how to be my friend.
Barney: My registered name is Absalom, but my friends call me Barney.
Ron: My friends call me Ron Bintscatsco.
Marc: [after Ron’s actions have been reported] I better look into that.
Andrew: You think? I mean, what if someone gets injured? I, for one, could not live with what that would do to our share price.
Ron: [moviequotesandmore.com] What is a friend, Barney?
Barney: Well, a friend is a person who likes, is always, I…
Ron: A person who, “likes, is always, I”. Okay. Now I’m your best friend.
