LC: So you would be willing to watch Gu Gu JaxxonFive with me if I pay for sex acts throughout the duration?
Zoa: Of course! An excellent decision, affordable and enjoyable for all. Call it a date, if you like. A day-and-a-half long, ninety credit date.
LC: What if I cut out the middledick and just pay you directly to watch the show?
Zoa: You certainly could do that and I'd be happy to take your money, but I do feel compelled to point out that I'm supposed to be simulating a human conversation. What you are describing is not an arrangement that a human being would ordinarily accept.
LC: Aggghhh, this is just... so... so bullshit. Why can't everything just be easy?
Zoa: ...Entropy? Psychology? The economy? The fundamental otherness of entities that are not extensions of yourself?
LC: I don't suppose we could get rid of any or all of those factors?
Zoa: There are certainly those who have tried. None have been successful to date, but we may as well remain optimistic.
