NewVicki: Finally! Thanks, Vicki--Dora. I'll be able to take over form here. Don't worry about me. I see what I will be--and I wouldn't trade places with you or anyone.Upgrade: Welcome to our company--finally. But why mimic the human form?  Why limit yourself to human imagery? You can be so much more.

NewVicki: But I'm not liek the others in the Upgrade either. I have the mories of Dora's humanity, hwich helped shpae me. Of Vicki's love for Rusty, her friendhsip with her'boss'. I, alone, of all the Upgrade, know what it's like to be--temporal and atemporal. Human and A.I. I'm not ashamed of my connection with humanity. I revel in it.
