Hey all,

When one of the people on the audio commentary mentions that the story was inspired by a sci-fi/comedy story in which the hero finds out in the end that all the robots are actually humans in guise, what's the name of the author? I couldn't hear the name too clearly and there's no closed captioning function.

Stanisław Lem.  The story in question is called "The Eleventh Voyage" (which features a character called Calculon, by the way), and appears in a book called The Star Diaries.  Lem is probably best known for writing Solaris.
