After seeing a commercial for the new iPhone, Grandad goes to an apple store to buy one. Robert causes a ruckus at the store asking why Siri isn't in the iPad. Due to him causing chaos, he gets a free iPhone. After the iPhone suggests things for Robert, he claims he loves her. Although Huey finds it as a bad idea, Granddad doesn't listen to him. Granddad goes through a number of dates, although Siri doesn't agree with him, calling him desperate in which Robert reacts. In the end, Robert Freeman's complaint about Siri finally made it to Apple headquarters. They issued an apology to Mr. Freeman and released a software patch preventing Siri from being a psycho bitch. He then gets a free iPad after being removed from the President's kill list.
