A crude question crudely asked.
A hydroelectric dam.
A vast computer and robotics corporation.
Absolutely not.
All I ask is that you recover the chip.
And how do you know this?
Any attempt to renegotiate payment would be tantamount to blackmail.
Any final matters for us to discuss?
Are you a child?
Are you ready to perform this task?
As I said before.
Bring me the Platinum Chip.
But that's not going to happen.
By the time I was 30 years old, I was a billionaire 30 * / I founded and ran a vast economic empire.
Can I look forward to a more substantial conversation this time?
Come now, don't keep me waiting.
Come over and introduce yourself.
Consider yourself suspended without pay.
Delivery of the Platinum chip is non negotiable.
Disappointing in the extreme.
Do as I say, and your rewards will be immense. Thwart me and your punishment will become the purpose of my existence.
Do whatever it takes to recover the chip.
Do you have any idea how prodigious is the opportunity you're casting aside here?
Do you have the slightest idea of what you've done?
Do you really think I'm going to let an upstart ransom my property to me?
Don't keep me waiting.
Every step of my plan has been precisely calculated and was until now, well executed.
Excellent idea.
Five times the bonus, not one cap more.
General Atomics International.
Get it over with, will you?
Get the job done.
Give me 20 years and I'll reignite the high technology development sectors. 50 years and I'll have people in orbit.
Have you come to your senses or will there be a repeat of the last incident?
Have you considered the terms of my offer?
Hoover Dam, of course.
How shall I put this?
How's that?
I am deceased.
I am deceased.
I am Robert Edwin House.
I am the only person to hold any rights pertaining to the chip. I designed it and I paid for it dearly.
I can predict with a high degree of confidence that you'll receive an official summons. If you haven't already, that is.
I don't respond well to threats.
I expect we'll have occasion to talk again.
I have no interest in abusing others, just as I have no interest in legislating or otherwise dictating what people do in their private time.
I like to think you have enough sense to do the right thing.
I paid for it.
I prefer the term autocrat.
I see.
I spent two centuries searching for the platinum chip. It's my invention, my property, mine. Now be a good Courier and deliver it.
I still have work for you.
I suppose you're right.
I think we can let this go without further comment.
I urge you to reconsider.
I was not aware of this.
I will pay you four times the delivery bonus stipulated in your contract.
I won't hold you up any longer.
I won't lie to you.
I would have made you wealthy.
I wouldn't want to spoil the surprise, so don't bother asking.
I, Robert Edwin House, am deceased.
I'll ask you to complete one other task. It may seem trivial, but that's far from the case.
I'll be happy to satisfy your rambunctious curiosity at a more appropriate moment.
I'll give you time to think over the consequences of what you're saying.
I'm flesh and blood, not silicon.
I'm not offering you an incentive, as crude as money, though there'll be plenty of that.
I'm not surprised.
I'm optimistic that this conversation will go more smoothly.
I'm pulling you on to a new assignment.
I'm the person who will pay you when you complete the delivery contract you signed.
I've always taken business negotiations very seriously. I advise you to do the same.
I've given you an assignment and the directions are clear.
I've spent too many years waiting for this moment to see it fumble by an insubordinate contractor.
I've waited too long for this moment for you to go following it up on a lark.
If this statement is being broadcast, I am deceased.
If you can't hold to a contract simply for the ethic of holding to a contract, you're worthless to me.
If you disappoint me, you will pay for it.
Indeed you will.
Ironic how this turned out.
Is it really so hard not to engage in cannibalism? My goodness.
Is that an attempt at?
Is that some kind of joke?
It was to have been hand delivered to me here.
It won't be easy.
It's a very special item. There's nothing else like it in the entire world.
It's irrelevant.
It's more complicated than that.
It's my invention, my property, mine.
Just a moment.
Let's get on with it, shall we?
Listen to me very carefully.
Marvelous work ethic. Bravo.
Maybe you should have thought of that before you conspired to destroy my property.
My goodness.
My only concern is the recovery of the Platinum chip.
No intuitive understanding of how complex technologies can be.
No punishment would be too severe.
No you haven't.
No, no, no.
Nor have I any interest in being worshipped as some kind of machine God Messiah, I am impervious to such corrupting ambitions.
Not acceptable.
Not good for business.
Not interested.
Not interested.
Not surprising. Also not acceptable.
Now be a good Courier and deliver it.
Now go get the chip.
Now hold on.
Now that you have the chip in your possession, any attempt to renegotiate payment would be tantamount to blackmail.
Now where were we?
Now, I could stop you from leaving, but what would that accomplish? If you want to go, go.
October 22nd.
Of course you haven't.
Oh come now, don't play the fool.
Oh, by all means, yes.
On October 22nd, 2077.
On October 2nd.
Once you've delivered the chip, I will pay you the amount agreed upon.
One of my employees has stolen an item of extraordinary value from me and I want it recovered.
One of the problems of a tribal workforce, I'm afraid.
Please focus on the task at hand for both our sakes.
Please get it right this time.
President, CEO and sole proprietor of the New Vegas Strip.
Rob Co Industries.
Robert Edwin House.
Robert Edwin House.
See what you can find out.
Single handedly you brought mankind's best hopes of forward progress crashing down. No punishment would be too severe.
So what are you doing here?
So you've said before.
Sorry for the inconvenience, but it can't be helped. This is too important.
Stop wasting time.
Sunnyvale, CA.
Surely you know that I am Robert Edwin House.
Surely you know that I am Robert Edwin, House President, CEO and sole proprietor of the New Vegas Strip.
That's all you need to know about it for this stage of our enterprise.
That's rather obvious, isn't it?
That's refreshing.
That's simply not true.
The chip contained vital software upgrades, but not just for my Securitrons, every aspect of the missile defense grid.
The chip contained vital software upgrades.
The delivery was never made.
The founder, president and CEO of Rob Co Industries.
The Platinum Chip was taken from you, obviously.
The platinum chip was to have been delivered by Courier the following afternoon.
The Platinum Chip.
The President of the New California Republic.
Then look harder.
There will be time for questions and answers once you've delivered the chip. Until then, you'll have to tolerate your ignorance, just as I do.
There's a job that needs doing here, and I'm assigning it to you.
There's little else for us to discuss until you have.
Think about what I could offer you.
This is an employer employee relationship.
This is important.
This is not an optional assignment.
This is not the time for Q&A.
This is the second time you've promised to deliver the Platinum Chip.
This was a waste of time.
To achieve my aims, I require a capable human agent to perform certain tasks.
To develop that chip, I spent a sum of U.S. dollars. Not the bottle caps that pass as currency these days, but a sum beyond counting.
Vegas will still rise again.
Very well.
Very well. Five times the bonus? Not one cap more.
We can discuss this in greater detail at another time.
We have a serious matter to discuss concerning a contract you have yet to fulfill.
We know how that turned out.
What do you recommend for next steps?
What do you think you're going to do?
What else did you want to discuss?
What else did you want to know?
What I'm offering is a future.
What is the purpose of this delay?
When you bring the chip to me, I will pay you four times the delivery bonus stipulated in your contract.
Why is good help so impossible to find?
Why thank you so much.
Worthless to me.
Yes, I know.
Yes, of course.
You are contractually obligated to deliver the chip. Do your job.
You barely understand what I want you to accomplish down there.
You have a contract to fulfill.
You have a job to do, so do it.
You have a way of exceeding expectations, don't you?
You have an interest in this, even if you're too stupid to know it.
You have an interest in this, whether you like it or not.
You have.
You realize you were just one of many couriers, the rest of them dummies, so to speak.
You realize you were just one of many couriers.
You signed a contract in good faith to deliver that chip.
You signed a contract to deliver the Platinum chip to me.
You signed a contract to deliver the Platinum chip.
You signed a contract.
You take your obligation to deliver a package very seriously.
You'll have to be more specific.
You'll receive a nice bonus when the work is done.
You'll understand soon enough.
You're absolutely right.
You're going to do the smart thing and work for me.
You're making a habit of wasting my time.
You're making me question your usefulness, you realize?
You're useless in this matter.
You're welcome.
You've been a busy Courier, haven't you?
You've come back to kill me this time, I assume?
