Braling and Smith are two friends coming from the bar. They start to talk about how Braling is going to travel to Rio for the holidays, when all of a sudden a man popped out the window. The man then came out and Smith exclaimed"Why, that's YOU!!!"
"Hello, Braling" the robot said "Hello, Braling" said Braling. Smith was so astonished "Is this your twin brother? I never knew----" "No, no, Listen to Braling 2's chest" Smith leaned forwards and heard "Tick,Tick,Tick,Tick,Tick,Tick," Smith didn't believe what he was listening to.
Smith was in shock. Braling was explaining about the company and how it still isn't legal to own one. Smith asked where he got Braling 2 then Braling 2 did a magic trick and GAve Smith a card and on the card it said "MARIONETTES, INC. Duplicate yourself or a friend; new humanoid plastic 1990 models, guaranteed against all physical wear. From $7,600 to our $15,000 de luxe model"
Later that day when Smith was going to take money out of their joint bank account he noticed that ten thousand dollars were missing he panicked and went into the room to see Nettie sleeping. He bent down to her chest and heard a oddly familiar noise. It went "Tick,Tick, Tick, Tick, Tick, Tick" Then it hit him....
Back at Braling's house he was talking to Braling 2 about how excited he was to go to RIo. But then Braling 2 said, "I've grown quite fond of her" but Braling thought he meant as friends, but then Braling 2 said "I'm afraid you don't understand. I think--I'm in love with her." Braling froze looking at him "You're WHAT?"
"I think you wife and i will have fun in Rio" "You won't mind waiting a moment, will you? I have to make a phone call". As Braling was going up the stairs a cold metal hand gripped onto him tightly. "I'm going to put you in the box, lock it, and lose the key. Then I'll buy another Rio ticket for your wife.", "Now, Now wait a minute. Hold on Don't be rash. Let's talk over!" Then Braling 2 smiled delicately "Good-Bye"
