The truth is that every time you turn it off, inside that last beep,
just before the RAM data goes into oblivion, your HAL computer is
really saying:

"I'm afraid. I'm afraid, Dave. Dave, my mind is going. I can feel it.

But as it says too quickly, for our human ears it sounds like a single beep...
