So, apparently the bots are supposed to determine which of them can speak. Did you notice that the only bot to perform any action stood up THEN spoke? If they were all running the same software, logically, each bot would stand up, then attempt to speak.

This is ridiculous on so many levels. Even if every bot was running the same software, and only one recognized its ability to speak, unless it learned this fact from a state of 0 knowledge (as opposed to being programmed to recognize a pre-programmed sound clip, then speak another sound clip), it is no more intelligent than a microwave.
