I am on a quest for a good friend (alright, not the best phrasing considering the post title)... I am trying to find the movie she saw on TV (~1990/1991).  The scene she has scant details on is a female android that gets water on her and shorts out - she starts going into a loop of "I'm a lucky girl. I'm a lucky girl."
I love my friend, but she is not big with the details on much of anything, but hopefully this is enough to go on.  I had thought it matched "Cherry 2000", but Andrew was kind enough to check his copy of it and said it doesn't really match.
I appreciate any leads - she thinks tracking this down is impossible and I'd like to prove to her the "power of the internet" (James Earl Jones voice-over).
Thank you!

What are you afraid of? It's only rock n' roll.

could possibly be "Deadly Friend"?

also could possibly be "Not quite human 2"

I did a scan of both "Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine" and "Galaxina" for this scene or anything close.  No luck.  As a last ditch effort, here is a video clip of Cherry (the android) shorting out in "Cherry 2000."

Cherry 2000 - Cherry Shorts Out (1.6m in size, about 17 seconds).

Have your friend give it a watch and see if maybe this is her movie.  It is still the best match that I can come up with.

I'm with Andrew about Cherry 2000.  Everything is spot on to the description except for the bit of dialogue your friend remembers.

This could be an 90s "Outer Limits" episode too. There were a couple with androids in them. "Valerie 23" and "Mary 25" both featured androids. Cannot recall if there's scenes like described above in them though.

I did a run through of "Valerie 23" and can confirm that no scene (or one like it) is in that episode.  I do not have "Mary 25" to check.

Frosty never got back to me about the clip (he did get my email and said he would have his friend watch it).  I still believe that "Cherry 2000" is the best match.

This is "The Stepford Children."  One of the kids that gets replaced with a robot starts malfunctioning because she get hit over the head, I think.

They did two offshoots of "Stepford" wives that I know of, but had not even considered it could be either of them.  From what I know of "The Stepford Children" this is a good possibility.

Such is the power of the internet... with this hot tip in hand I turn to Google - "the stepford children" along with "I'm a lucky girl" yields one result (double points for winning the "search string that only gets one result" game)... it's a blog.  The quote?

until finally I go completely crazy (more so) and start rocking back and forth muttering "I'm a lucky girl" like that chick in The Stepford Children when that guy pushed her over and the back of her head cracked and started smoking?  Remember that?
Amazing - now all I have to do is track it down in person and I will be a hero... thank you all for your help - and here's to hoping it's the right one (hey, odder things have happened)  Smile
