Lister : Sometimes, I think it's cruel giving machines a personality. My mate Petersen once bought a pair of shoes with Artificial Intelligence. 'Smart Shoes' they were called. It was a neat idea: no matter how blind drunk you were, they could always get you home. But he got ratted one night in Oslo and woke up the next morning in Burma. You see, the shoes got bored just going from his local to the flat. They wanted to see the world, like, you know. He had a hell of a job getting rid of them. No matter who he sold them to, they'd show up again the next day. He tried to shut them out, but they just kicked the door down, you know.
Rimmer : Is this true?
Lister : Yeah. Last thing he heard, they'd sort of, erm, robbed a car and drove it into a canal. They couldn't steer, you see.
Rimmer : Really?
Lister : Yeah. Petersen was really, really blown away about it. He went to see a priest. The priest told him... he said it was alright and all that, like, and that the shoes were happy and that they'd gone to heaven. You see, it turns out shoes have 'soles'.
Rimmer : Ah, what a sad, sad story. Wait a minute.
[Thinks for a minute]
Rimmer : How did they open the car door?

He bounced a little, like a man testing the hardness of something. 'Elm Street,' he said. He bounced again. 'Junction with Twinkle. Yeah.'

I had a pair of self guided shoes. They were great at getting me home after an evening at the bar. But they got tired of making the same trip over and over, so they tied themselves together and jumped in the lake.  But it's okay, shoes have souls.

Good : So now I can prove I've walked a mile in someone else's shoes
Bad : So can the cops
