The latest upgrade comes to Babylon 5

Cmdr. Susan Ivanova: God, I hate this part. I'm always afraid I've broken something.
Michael Garibaldi: It'll be fine. I've done this before.
[the computer restarts]
Michael Garibaldi: Ah, Told ya. Computer.
[pause]
Michael Garibaldi: Computer?
Sparky the Computer: Hey, what do you want?
Michael Garibaldi: Run diagnostics.
Sparky the Computer: What, you got a broken arm or something? I got a station to run here!
Cmdr. Susan Ivanova: Computer.
Sparky the Computer: I know, do a diagnostic. So, maybe Level 42 doesn't get its quota of oxygen today because I'm distracted, but if it makes you happy!
Michael Garibaldi: Stop!
Cmdr. Susan Ivanova: Garibaldi?
Michael Garibaldi: I just remembered, they tried to install Artificial Intelligence subroutines when the station went operational. They shut it down right away because it didn't work right. Must have come back on-line when the system re-booted.
Cmdr. Susan Ivanova: Great! How do we shut it down?
Sparky the Computer: I heard that! Are you two easily offended, or what?
