"Roderick wasn't exactly happy, but at least he was holding down a job, even if it was only as a bowl-washer at Danton's Doggie Dinette. He didn't know they were out to get him. He didn't know that in the whole wide world of lunatic game shows, maniacal religious cults, tentacular business corporations, murderous governments, crazy consumerism and pill-popping people, there was no place for one mild-mannered robot."
