Atomic Robo and one of his soldier pals (new character, we’ll call him Grant in tribute to one of Atomic Robo’s biggest fans) are running down a long corridor in a secret research installation / evil bad guy’s lair type place.
They’re being pursued by a flying steel box with machine guns mounted on either side – it’s firing at them.
Atomic Robo: This is worse than I thought – it’s Schrödinger's Cat – and he’s armed!
Grant: He’s trying to kill us!
Atomic Robo and Grant duck round a corner and the flying metal box goes whizzing past.
Atomic Robo: And if Schrödinger himself were here, I’m sure he’d postulate that either his cat will kill us… or it won’t.
Grant: You think maybe we should kill it before it solves that particular quantum dilemma?
Close on Atomic Robo, looking thoughtful.
Atomic Robo: Only one problem with that – the cat might already be dead.
Grant (O/P): What now? How can it be dead--!?
Atomic Robo: There’s no way to know for sure until we can see inside that box.
The flying box / Schrödinger's Cat is back – this time it’s armed with a buzz saw and firing lasers.
Atomic Robo and Grant start running again.
SFX: Weeoop! Weeoop! Weeoop!
Grant: This is why I hate science.
Atomic Robo: Just keep running, I’ll figure something—
Atomic Robo and Grant hit a slippery patch on the floor and go skidding. They’re still being pursued by Schrödinger's Cat… but also being observed in the foreground by dog-shaped silhouettes.
Atomic Robo: --oouuuuuuuuuutttt!
Atomic Robo and Grant have come to land in a tangle of arms and legs. They’re now surrounded by enemies – not just the deadly, flying cat-in-a-box, but also a pack of slobbering mutant dogs. The dogs’ slobber is all over the floor – it’s this which caused our heroes to slip. Atomic Robo is staring at the dogs, Grant can’t see what’s happening because he’s lying face down in the tangle.
Atomic Robo: Oh great. This just gets better and better.
Grant: What is it? What is it!?
Atomic Robo: We’re not just up against Schrödinger's Cat…
Atomic Robo: We’ve also got to deal with Pavlov’s Dogs!
