A.I. Artificial Intelligence (2001)
Sabrina Grdevich: Sheila
[Professor Hobby asks Mecha, Secretary Sheila, what is love]
Professor Hobby : Tell me. What is love?
Secretary : Love is first widening my eyes a little bit... and quickening my breathing a little... and warming my skin and touching my...
Professor Hobby : And so on. Exactly so. Thank you, Sheila.
Professor Hobby : [the group claps] But I wasn't referring to sensuality stimulators. The word that I used was 'love.' Love like the love of a child for it's parents. I propose that we build a robot child who can love. A child robot who will genuinely love... the parent, or parents it imprints on... with a love that will never end.
Supernerd : A child-substitute Mecha?
Professor Hobby : But a Mecha with a mind, with neuronal feedback. You see, what I'm suggesting is that love will be the key... by which they acquire a kind of subconscious never before achieved. An inner world of metaphor, intuition, a self-motivated reasoning, of dreams.
[Professor Hobby stabs the Mecha, Secretary Sheila's hand in a demonstration, asking her what she feels]
Professor Hobby : How did that make you feel? Angry? Shocked?
Secretary : I don't understand.
Professor Hobby : What did I do to your feelings?
Secretary : [Secretary Sheila holds up her hand] You did it to my hand.
