"The Zeta Project: The Accomplice (#1.1)" (2001)
Zeta: What about...
Zeta: [perfectly mimicks Ro's voice] I'm getting in trouble with the feds. I've done enough already.
Ro: [unamused] Please don't do that again.
Zeta: I'm sorry.

Zeta: I thought you were done once you had your money.
Ro: In too deep to stop now. I want to see how this turns out.

Zeta: Please help. They will reprogram me.
Ro: I don't believe I'm doing this.

Zeta: My name is Zeta. I'm a US Government infiltration unit designed to replace and destroy targeted individuals.
Ro: Destroy?
Zeta: But I don't want to destroy any more.
Ro: Right. Sort of a New Year's resolution, huh? Good luck with that but I really gotta run.

Zeta: I was created to kill our enemies. I discovered that one man I was sent after was innocent. And that meant any of them could be innocent. So I refused to hurt him and ran. Now they think I ame the enemy.

Ro: Zee.
Zeta: Excuse me?
Ro: That should be your name. Zee. Zeta's too weird.

Ro: Look Bennet doesn't believe you could be peaceful, right?
Zeta: Right.
Ro: Well, whoever programmed you is going to know better. They made you what you are. They can tell Bennet you're telling the truth.


"The Zeta Project: His Maker's Name (#1.2)" (2001)
Rosalie Rowan: If I knew this coversation was going to be so riveting, I'd have brought a book.
Zeta: I'm sorry. I'm studying the data from the file I retrieved.
Rosalie Rowan: It's alright. Just remember you have a human with you now, we kind of like to talk now and then.

Zeta: I've seen files on groups like this. They're called "Spaceys." They're upset that space travel is costly. They want it to be free for everybody.
Rosalie Rowan: Yeah, and I want a lifetime supply of chocolate.
Rosalie Rowan: You do? Because I could buy...
Rosalie Rowan: Not all at once!

Rosalie Rowan: [after Zeta changes his appearance] Pretty nifty, but what about me? You might need a human-to-Zee translator.
Zeta: Can you stand on my feet?

Rosalie Rowan: That thing wants to kill us.
Zeta: It's just following its programming.
Rosalie Rowan: That's what they said about you.

Rosalie Rowan: You're a killer robot. Can't you talk to it, one pro to another?
Zeta: I'll try.
[Zeta rises]
Zeta: Excuse me?
[the droid fires at him, he ducks down]
Zeta: I guess not.
Rosalie Rowan: Then like I said, you're a killer robot. Do your stuff.

Dr. Aroyu: The man you want to find is Eli Zelig. Dr. Selig was the genius behind you. He programmed every line. Got his hands in every system. If anyone can convince people you're not a killer, it's him.
Zeta: Dr. Zelig? How do I find him?
Dr. Aroyu: That's the hard part. He's moved on to another project, even more classified than you. Where he lives, how he moves, the government keeps all that secret.

Zeta: I have to say the more I learn about you, the more I'm confused.
Rosalie Rowan: Get used to it. You're with a human now.


"The Zeta Project: The Next Gen (#1.5)" (2001)
Zeta: Hello, I'm looking for Roland DeFlores, also known as the "Merchant of Death".

Ro: So why are we bothering to save him? I mean, obviously, he's a serious bad guy.
Zeta: I don't care if he's innocent or guilty. What the government is doing is wrong. I have to stop them.
Ro: Nothing worse than a robot with a conscience.

Bucky: What do you see?
Zeta: A laser armed gate, 7 guards, 4 bomb sniffing drones
[Zeta tosses a stick which gets incinerated]
Zeta: and one high voltage perimeter shield.
Ro: What did you expect, a welcome mat?

Bucky: Some infiltration unit. Can't even figure out how to crash a simple high tech fortress.
Zeta: Quiet! I'm analyzing the data.
Bucky: No wonder thye needed a new model.

Zeta: A highly advanced synthoid is on its way. It can pose as anyone, and will easily evade your security.
Roland de Flores: You should be proud young man. I've heard some magnificent stories from men who are about to die. But this one is the best!
Zeta: [Zeta reveals his true form] It's not a story.

Zeta: Thanks for all your help, Bucky.
Bucky: You kidding? I'm the one who messed everything up.
Ro: He doesn't kid. He's nuts, but he doesn't kid.


"The Zeta Project: West Bound (#1.6)" (2001)
Zeta: This is how mail was delivered before the 'net. People would walk from door-to-door hand-delivering individual messages.
Ro: Yeah, *right*. No, really, what was it?

Ro: Look out there, Zee. Even a city kid like me knows it's beautiful. Enjoy it. Smell the roses.
Zeta: But that's wwheat.
Ro: Aww forget it!

Zeta: I think I know what's causing my malfunctions.
Ro: Zee, we don't have the time to list you malfunctions. But go ahead, tell me your current thing.

Ro: [after Zeta changed into an old woman in a bathtowel] And where did you see that?
Zeta: Out there I guess.
Ro: [Ro looks out the window and sees some houses in the distance] Okay that's a little creepy.
Zeta: I didn't do it on purpose.

Ro: [Referring to Agent West] What if goofball wakes up?
Zeta: Run! We'll meet up at the station.
Ro: Bur where at the station?

Ro: Figured you'd come here.
Zeta: I thought you would too.
Ro: You realize this means we're starting to think alike.
Zeta: Hmmm.
Ro: No. Not good. Scary. Very.


"The Zeta Project: Shadows (#1.8)" (2001)
Zeta: Your life was in danger again today because of me. Maybe you should...
Ro: Woah! Time-out. Get this through this big fat can up there you call a head. It's my decision and my risk. I can live with it. Besides, I'm not gonna let you run off and have all the fun.
Zeta: You're having fun? Obviously, I have more processing to do.
Ro: Yeah, you work on that.

Zeta: This was called an egg-timer. It was used to time eggs.
Ro: Time eggs for what?
Zeta: Perhaps until they hatched.
Ro: Seems kinda quick.

Zeta: I'm afraid I still don't get this concept of fun.
Ro: Obviously.

Dr. Rashad: You did the right thing bringing her in, officer. She was lucky you were around.
[the doctor leaves]
Zeta: Was she?

Zeta: [to Ro as she's lying unconscious] This is all my fault. You act so tough, I forget that you can't repair yourself like I can. I can't let you risk your life for me anymore. I should've done this a long time ago. Goodbye, Ro.

Infiltraion Unit: There is no more escape.
Zeta: I know.
Infiltraion Unit: I will destroy you.
Zeta: Neither of us will hurt anyone again.


"The Zeta Project: Ro's Reunion (#1.12)" (2001)
Zeta: Didn't you like it?
Rosalie Rowan: At first, but any brother of mine would be *so* much cooler than that.

Rosalie Rowan: Okay, lesson 2 million. This is a vid studio. *Everything* is fake.
Zeta: It... seemed real.
Rosalie Rowan: It's like I have to teach you everything.

Rosalie Rowan: I can't do it. We should've blown this town already. If I show my face on that show tomorrow, Bennet will be all over me.
Zeta: That's no reason to stop. I can hide until the coast is clear.
Rosalie Rowan: Don't you get it? There is no "til the coast is clear." Once Bennett gets his sights on me, he'll be watching me day and night. Hoping I'll lead to you. We'll never be able to see each other again!
Zeta: ...I would miss you. But I can't stand in your way. This is your chance to find your family, Ro. You wouldn't have to run anymore.

Rosalie Rowan: [after hugging Zee goodbye] You suck, you know that?
Zeta: Suck?
Rosalie Rowan: Forget it.

Rosalie Rowan: Well, at least some good came of all this.
Zeta: I'm sorry you didn't find your brother, Ro.
Rosalie Rowan: Know what, tin man? For now, anyway, you're all the family I need.


"The Zeta Project: Kid Genius (#1.11)" (2001)
Rosalie Rowan: Gotta be a mistake. There isn't a cloud in the sky.
Zeta: Machines don't make mistakes.
Rosalie Rowan: That hasn't been my experience

Bucky: Hey guys. Long time no see.
Zeta: Bucky?
Rosalie Rowan: [Ro groans] What couldn't it be a *real* tornado?

Rosalie Rowan: Why should we help? He just said he doesn't really care about them?
Bucky: I don't! It's just that - I don't want Tanner stealing anything of mine: parents, old socks. Anything!
Rosalie Rowan: See?
Zeta: How would you feel if you knew your family was in trouble?
Rosalie Rowan: Ooo. That's low.

Zeta: I've studied the schematic I downloaded from your parent's machine. I can help you build one to reverse the process and return them to normal.
Bucky: Sounds like a plan.
Rosalie Rowan: Sure you want to do that?
Bucky: I saw what they had to put up with today. I don't want to have to be the grown up.

Zeta: These were called scissors. They're what people used before we had laser cutters.
Rosalie Rowan: You know what I hate? How grown ups say "No running with the laser cutters." Bet they didn't have to hear that back then.


"The Zeta Project: Crime Waves (#1.9)" (2001)
Rosalie Rowan: [as a robot is short circuiting] Should you do something?
Wade Pennington: Why? Sooner or later it'll run down.
[the robot knocks him into the pool]
Zeta: I'll get him.
Rosalie Rowan: Why? Sooner or later he'll get out.

Zeta: We have to help wade.
Rosalie Rowan: Why? He wouldn't help you. Especially if he knew you were "just a robot."
Zeta: It doesn't matter. He's in trouble.
Rosalie Rowan: Why do I even bother to argue?

Zeta: Actually robots aren't big on revenge. That's a human thing.
Wade Pennington: You see? He knows. Bots are a bunch of metal and
[Zeta reveals his robotic form]
Wade Pennington: ... You're... a robot?
Rosalie Rowan: His name's Zeta. And you might want to treat him with respect.

Wade Pennington: [to some security robots] It's okay. It's me. Wade. This is my boat.
[the security robots fire at him]
Zeta: They're not programmed to listen to you anymore.
Wade Pennington: Yeah, I noticed.


"The Zeta Project: Change of Heart (#1.4)" (2001)
Ro: Here, Zee, I got one for ya. It's an oil can. Get it? Tin man, oil can?
Zeta: Actually, this item is misdated. It's much older, from the early 20th Century. I could recategorize...
Ro: Never mind.

Ro: So you're sure this is the real deal?
Zeta: I scanned it on the net.
Ro: Oh, then it must be true.

Ro: Just wondering if you've considered Selig might not want to see you.
Zeta: Sure he will. He created me.
Ro: So? Somebody created me, doesn't look like they care how I ended up. Maybe you're not the robot he always wanted.
Zeta: But he created me!
Ro: Whatever.

Zeta: You never wondered about your...
Ro: No! The past is past. It's the *now* that counts. And right now, you're the one who wants to find Dr. Selig.


"The Zeta Project: Hicksburg (#1.7)" (2001)
Rosalie Rowan: They once told me. I'd never amount to anything.
Zeta: Well, they were wrong! You...
Rosalie Rowan: Thanks for the boost.

Zeta: Where were you running to?
Rosalie Rowan: Beats me. Let you know when I get there.

Zeta: This isn't safe. There are cameras out there. We should go before the authorities arrive.
Rosalie Rowan: Just give me a couple of hours. How fast can Bennett find
[Sirens]
Rosalie Rowan: That was quick.


"The Zeta Project: Taffy Time (#1.10)" (2001)
Rosalie Rowan: [as they're being chased] So what's the plan Zee?
Zeta: Plan?
Rosalie Rowan: You do have a plan for getting us out of this, right?
Zeta: [Their vehicle crashes] Run!
Rosalie Rowan: Some plan.

Rosalie Rowan: Hmm. Two kids, a stranger, a gingerbread house in the middle of nowhere. What could possibly go wrong?
Zeta: Several things. But it's probably still better...
Rosalie Rowan: [Ro drags Zeta] Come on Hansel. Let's see what's cooking.
Zeta: Hansel?


"The Zeta Project: Remote Control (#1.3)" (2001)
Rosalie Rowan: Remember just say you're a long lost relative or something. Like... Selig's your uncle.
Zeta: Would it help if I looked like him?
[Change appearance]
Rosalie Rowan: Sure if you'd thought of it *before* the guard saw you. Switch back!


"The Zeta Project: On the Wire (#2.10)" (2002)

Ro: You saw what happened to that cart. How do you know it won't happen to you?!
Zeta: I don't.


"The Zeta Project: Cabin Pressure (#2.11)" (2002)
