Ma, you really didn?t need to come. It?s just a job, I?ll find another one. Nonsense, I want to help. Well, I?m not really sure what there is for you to do around here... This reminds me of the time you got fired from the newspaper. I suppose those pesky old wounds need some reopening...

The Story

The Good Little Robot is stranded here on Earth. With no way home, he tries to make the best of things by fitting into society. He gets a dull job, makes friends with Francis, a quiet sheep, and Robin, a young data-entry clerk who longs to get her journalism career back on track. A top secret, yet mostly inept government agency whose purpose is apparently to cover up the truth about extra-terrestrial life on Earth quickly catches wind of robot's existence, and makes his life a little more interesting than he would have liked.
