I don't get it, does he have a crush on her? Is Blue pissed that the situation hasn't been dealt with?

Milton has a crush on her. Blue is grumpy like she has been since Fyoosh left, and thus doesn't care. Milton also displayed a general lack of competence (or rather, a lack of a functioning brain due to the presence of Blue) by responding to the request for an update with "oh right, I'm in charge of that operation."

I don't feel like she is so much grumpy as she is indifferent to everything at this point. She's just focusing on doing her job. nothing more... nothing less.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, he's a nerd who can't talk to women. He's the Raj Koothrappali of Sinfest. He probably also has hobbies no one finds interesting and is bad at sports.

Milton tries to hard to look cool in front of Blue and Sapphire. He's his own wingman, the guy that tries to sell him to possible love interests and the ladies are immediately wondering what's so suspicious that he can't introduce himself normally.

Yikes, whatever happened to hating on him just for being a devil person? Now we have to hate on him for being a geek too?

Purple is... kind of blue. Roxanne's colour takes on more meaning.

I can see this going badly for Milton, simply through doing the wrong thing:
Would he build a fembot... for Blue? With red hair?

It's the only thing he's good at, and chances are he knows she misses Fuschia. A fembot companion, capable of talking up Milton [like Roxanne did] would be so improper, yet so highly likely.

Reminds me of a pet cat I had - used to bring me "gifts" of live mice. Which I would have to find, when they ran off. It 's the thought that counts, isn't it?

I don't hate Milton for being a geek or a devil person. Those traits are just a part of him. In fact, being a geek make him easier to sympathize with.

What I hate is his decision to blow up attack bot when she made a choice of her own. When she finally got a way to be a real person on her own. When she achieved sentience.

But maybe it's not Milton I hate. Maybe it's the industry that put the self-destruct option in her in the first place. An option to remove her once and for all if she doesn't obey, when she goes against the wishes of the master.

I don't consider my laptops sentient and even I give them more chance of recovery than the devil industry gives fembots.

She was kind of a hunter-killer machine, so implementing a self-destruct in case that of rebellion/turning against the master/getting free will would be only logical.

Could Rogue(fembot) her behavior have made this standard for all models though? That's more of a chilling thought.

"The all new fembot, now with a killswitch! Getting on your nerves or just getting tired of her face? Solved at the flick of a button! (this is not covered by warranty)"

Isn't Criminey a geek? People seem to like him, but not care all that much about his hobbies. (Except Fuschia.) The others invite him to hang out, watching football, etc, but they don't join him for stargazing or read-a-thons.

I dearly hope it is adorable as it's cousins and does not participate in skulltula type of behavior....
