10. All your subs are belong to us! (Just ask your gamer pals, they'll get it.)

9. Subs so fast, we serve you in the future.

8. Jimmy John's - The choice of the intelligent and artificial intelligent!

7. JJ employee to friends later, "The robot didn't want a sandwich, he wanted to ask the register on a date. I think he was just after her money." 

6. I don't have any money, but I would literally give my left nut for a Jimmy John's sandwich!

5. Domo un sandwicho Mr. Roboto...

4.  About the robot? Or the fact that it looks like the guy's shirt mixing with the register sign says "Subs so fast I'll spread the mayo you spread the love!"
