Obligatory quotes

Is the CRAY able to test the nukes? Because it's connected?

HAL: I know that you and Frank were planning to disconnect me. And I'm afraid that's something I cannot allow to happen.

Or, better, The Forbin Project (excerpt from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colossus:_The_Forbin_Project):

It also states that it had detected the attempt to disarm the missiles and detonates two of them in their silos "so that you will learn by experience that I do not tolerate interference". Guardian/Colossus tells Dr. Forbin that "freedom is just an illusion" and that "In time, you will come to regard me not only with respect and awe, but with love". Forbin replies, "Never!"
