Milo Murphy's Law Wiki

Must find zero-zero.


"A Clockwork Origin" is the 26th episode in the first season of Milo Murphy's Law. It aired on September 26, 2017.[1]

Milo, Zack, and Melissa attend a conference held at Vtech Corp Inc. by the company CEO Victor Verliezer. He showcases the robot C.I.D.D., who rampages and escapes, desperately searching for "zero-zero". Milo, Melissa and Zack chase C.I.D.D. down and discover the robot's true creator.


Milo, Zack, and Melissa visit Vtech Corp Inc., a tech company, to see a new product presented by its C.E.O., Victor Verliezer. After a demonstration of a new robot, C.I.D.D., goes wrong, it escapes and the trio gives chase. They head to a lumberjack festival; Zack is hesitant because of his past with the Lumberzacks. They realize that C.I.D.D was made by someone else, Clyde Rickenbacker, and they see him at the festival. They reunite him and C.I.D.D. but are ambushed by the tech company. They evade him with Zack's faulty app.

They are chased by Victor and his two goons until they reach the building, where it was revealed that Clyde was tricked into giving away his rights to his inventions after he left. The trio live-stream Victor mocking his customers on their phones, causing his company to fail instantly. The trio say their goodbyes to C.I.D.D. and his creator, while C.I.D.D. jokes about the robot apocalypse.
