The cellmate asks the computer "What are you in for?"
The computer replies "I performed an illegal function call."
I find it humerous when people see that on their computer and think the computer did something in the statutory legal sense and they think the cops are on their way. For those who don't know, when your computer says that, it generally means that something got messed up and a program tried to write to a memory or disc location that it didn't have permissions for, or execution of bad code, or something. It could mean a lot of different things; none of which you need to call your lawyer about.
