We all know once you beat the Core that you get the air tank from Curly because you nearly get flooded...
But why is she just standing there when she could be helping him?

Because she is emotionally compromising with herself in order to commit the nigh-impossible act of suicide.

MAybe she's computing her options. You know, like should she save him, or take his wallet and run.

nah yakkers it's when she has her back to you, after the core floods
I believe she's in emotional turmoil after misery talking her down
or contemplating her options, like saving you and whatnot

or more likely robots can't talk underwater

i think emotional shock of finding out that what she was doing would actually kill the Colons she was trying to save.

She... doesn't ignore you?

It's you going unconscious that makes her make the rash decision of sacrificing herself to save you. Before that, she's presumably still trying to find a way out of the Core room.

I agree with Malpercio. To me, it just feels like she is thinking to herself, "What did I just do?!!", and having an emotional breakdown. When Quote collapsed, it snapped her out of it and made her realize that there's no changing the past and that she must think about the future. (In her case, she believed that Quote was far more likely to save the island than she could be, so she sacrificed herself to ensure his survival.)

I would still like to know why she dosn't just share the air tank until they could find a way out (as uncomfortable as it would be).

Her robotness does an auto-shutdown.
That's why she is just "flooded" and not "drownded" like Quote does.

that explains why she's staring off into space the entire time you're running around gasping for breath

I think Quote floods as well in the water, but if he does, that means he won't be able to save the island (because no one would save him, except Curly who obviously doesn't find the rope), and therefore, you lose the game.

Well, presumably she's looking around for a way out. :o

Maybe she got hurt by the Core and couldn't move that well?

explains why she's jumping all over as fast as you (faster than you in the water) right up until Misery appears and delivers the whole bit about "killing this destroys the island - including your precious kids"

@magic: 10 seconds is a little long for a robot to spend staring in the same direction looking for a way out.

DANG IT...!

...Anyway, yeah, I like the emotional-shock over nearly killing everyone theory.

You don't consider it may be the fact that she wants him to live? For his sake? :awesomeface:

EliteDemise is right, I think.
