Added DiffLines:

* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Android!Dornheimer drops one on Kolos after his android mooks chain him to the wall:
--> You programmed me with too much knowledge. You allowed my mechanical brain to cross over the barrier that separates android and human -- the power of independent thought. You and your masters have violated a basic law of scientific law: You must must never program a mechanical device with more wisdom than you yourself possess. You must never create a robot that can outsmart you. In a perfect android society, there is no room for weaknesses. We have no feelings. We are superior in every way. We are the master race.
