Added DiffLines:

* VillainHasAPoint: Skroeder is adamant about destroying Number Five at all costs and deliberately undermines and steps on the toes of others who are working on a less militant and violent approach. The truth is that the SAINT robots have MILITARY applications with a fully active laser cannon, you can even see the OhCrap look on their faces when they realize he can use it freely. While the audience gets the benefit of seeing how benign and childlike Number Five is, the team they send in do end up provoking Number Five into a laser response. At the time who knows what else might have provoked the same reaction.
-->'''Howard''': Crosby, what is it going to do?\\
'''Newton''': It's hard to say; it's malfunctioning. It might not do anything.\\
'''Skroeder''': But it ''could'' decide to blow away anything that moves, couldn't it?
* UglyCute: ''Johnny 5''.
