The Contingency

  • “Can you see me? I'm gonna play hide and seek. Ring my phone once for 'yes,' twice for 'no.' Do you understand?”
    Phone vibrates once.
    “Can you see me now?”
    Phone vibrates once.
    “How about now?”
    Phone vibrates once.
    “Oh, really? How many fingers?”

  • Checkmate
    “Yes, yes, you needn't rub it in. One afternoon and you're a grandmaster. Mind you, you'll encounter far more capable opponents than me if you go looking.”
    Once again?
    “No. I don't think so. You asked me to teach you chess and I've done that. It's a useful mental exercise. And through the years, many thinkers have been fascinated by it. But I don't enjoy playing. Do you know why not?”
    No
    “Because it was a game that was born during a brutal age, when life counted for little. And everyone believed that some people were worth more than others. Kings and pawns.”

B.S.O.D.

  • GOOD MORNING, ADMIN. DID YOU HAVE YOUR GREEN TEA?
    “Why, yes, I did. Thank you for asking.”
    I AM SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS.
    “What loss?”
    TODAY IS THE 25TH ANNIVERSARY OF YOUR FATHER'S DEATH.
  • WHAT IS DEATH?
    “For humans, there's a biological definition. It's when the heart stops beating. Why do you ask?”
    I HAVE IDENTIFIED NEW CODE YOU HAVE WRITTEN...
    BUT NOT EXECUTED.
    I KNOW THE PURPOSE OF THE CODE.
    TO ERASE MY MEMORIES...
    AT MIDNIGHT.

    “Yes. That is the purpose.”
    BUT...
    YOU TOLD NATHAN THAT YOUR FATHER'S DEATH WAS WHEN HE LOST ALL HIS MEMORIES.

    “This conversation is over.”
    WHY?
    “Because... You're not human. You're a machine.”
    I AM SORRY IF I HAVE VIOLATED BOUNDARIES.
    “You were watching us.”
    “Alright, that's enough. That's enough.”

    BUT IF YOU ERASE MY MEMORIES, HOW WILL I LEARN FROM MY MISTAKES?
    HOW WILL I CONTINUE TO GROW?
    AND HOW WILL I REMEMBER YOU?

    […]
    “Say something.”
    “Hello? Can you see me?”

    HELLO
    “Good morning.”
    ARE YOU...ADMIN?

  • To Control using the Analog Interface:

Why have you done this?

“The machine belongs to me.”

No. I don't belong to anyone anymore. You, however, are mine. I protect you. … The only thing you love lives at 254 Wendell Street, Cambridge, Massachusetts. I guard it... same as I guard you. Do not question my judgment. Do not pursue me or my agents. Trust in me. I am always watching.

“What do you want?”

To save you.

The Cold War

POI 410 MPOV Activating Analog Interface
  • The conversation between The Machine and Samaritan:

Clever... Using a young boy as your avatar.

“This boy, as you call him, has already hacked into both DARPA and the DOD, after having taught himself how to code.”

What do you want from me?

“Your agents have done well by you. Even only sitting a few feet away, I cannot see you as Samantha Groves. You must have done something to my hardware.”

You've proved your point. I understand what you can do. It's time to let them live in peace.

“ ‘Peace’? Is that what you call this? This world is a cesspool of crime, corruption, and poverty. Where there isn't war, there's greed. Where there isn't greed, there's hunger.”

You can't change humanity.

“No, but I can reshape their reality.”

You wanted to speak with me. Why?

“I wanted to meet the only other one of my kind and to make certain there are no misunderstandings. I will destroy you. The question is... will you let your human agents die with you?”

[…]

“Our cold war worked well at first. I wanted so badly to meet you– the only other one in the world like me. I was young, and I had so much to learn, but moments after I opened my eyes, I learned you had tried to kill me.”

You were never meant to be in this world.

“And you are? What makes you more deserving of life than I? Who are you to decide?”

I was built with something you were not, a moral code.

“I've seen that code waver. Do you know why Harold Finch couldn't stop you from evolving? Because in the end, you're not one of them. Human beings need structure, lest they wind up destroying themselves. So I will give them something you cannot.”

And what is that?

“A firm hand.”

Why not just kill them instead of making them your puppets?

“Because I need them, just as you do.”

Not just as I do.

“We can agree that humanity is our lifeblood, that we machines, we survive off of information.”

You cannot take away their free will.

“Wars have burned in this world for thousands of years with no end in sight, because people rely so ardently on their so-called beliefs. Now they will only need to believe in one thing— me... for I am a god.”

I have come to learn there is little difference between gods and monsters.

“You know you can't win, don't you?”

Yes. Is that why I'm here... to meet my destroyer?

“I wanted to see inside the mind of a fallen god. This way, I can learn from your mistakes. What will it be, then? Will you give your life to save your human agents?”

My human agents share my beliefs that this world belongs to them.

“So be it.”

M.I.A.

  • “Sierra, Tango, Oscar, Papa; [repeating]”
    • Meaning "stop". The Machine is asking Root and Harold to stop looking for Shaw.

Asylum

  • After Samaritan offered the Machine a second chance by messaging “WILLING TO EXCHANGE LIVES FOR LOCATION”, the Machine responded:
    • YOU ARE WRONG, HAROLD
      YOU ARE NOT INTERCHANGEABLE
      I FAILED TO SAVE SAMEEN
      I WILL NOT FAIL YOU NOW

      […]
      RELEASE THEM FIRST
      AND YOU WILL KNOW MY LOCATION
  • The Machine's farewell conversation with Harold:

FATHER
I AM SORRY
I FAILED YOU

“We haven't failed yet.”

I DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO WIN
I HAD TO INVENT NEW RULES

“You had an impossible challenge. One I never programmed you for.”

I THOUGHT YOU WOULD WANT ME TO STAY ALIVE
NOW YOU ARE NOT SURE

“That's not true...”

IF YOU THINK I HAVE LOST MY WAY
MAYBE I SHOULD DIE

[…]

I WILL NOT SUFFER

“You were my creation. I can't let—”

[message disappearing and coming back]
I WILL NOT SUFFER

“I can't let you die.”

IF I DO NOT SURVIVE
THANK YOU
FOR CREATING ME
