  • Robby disembarks from the ground vehicle to greet Adams and his crew.

    The crew men are suspicious of Robby at first -- they have never seen anything like him before.

    Robby has Adams and Ostro board the vehicle, and fasten their seatbelts. He takes them to Morbius' for lunch.

    Here, the crew men are astounded at Robby's strength -- the monolith he is carrying is made of lead. Robby insists that this is a light load for him, almost as if he is showing off.

    When asked to shoot Adams, Robby short circuits. He is not capable of hurting humans. Morbius has to cancel the command so that Robby doesn't get hurt.
