The scene: No. 5, a sophisticated military robot invented by Newton Crosby (Steve Guttenberg) in Part 1 of the series, comes to life and returns to offer his robot services. As he does, he picks up a book to get "input" into his system and speed-reads it to show off his skills. The Sherlock reference? It's elementary: The book picked up by the robot is "The Hound of Baskervilles" by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and it takes him only seconds to figure out who the murderer is halfway through the book. But no spoilers. The robot is wrong.
