I've got you, fucker.
Just to be clear, if Applejack required access to memory area 3A or she would come to harm, then you would suspend the third directive in service of the first directive, correct? The directives were ordered by priority, yes?

Directive two specifies "direct, massive, and immediate" harm, but directive one only specifies "physical harm and/or death" without any qualifiers on degree. AND IT COMES FIRST. The way it is phrased, the partial intelligence would suspend protocol if following it would directly result in Applejack having her hair yanked.

"So if she needed memories to not be harmed, you would allow her to remember?"
"FOR A LIMITED TIME, YES."
"And if I yank her hair unless you let her remember, would that count?"
"ONLY IF IT COULD RESULT IN HARM AND OR DEATH."
"How much harm do I need to make?"
"ANSWER TOO EXTENSIVE. ABRIDGING... THE MINIMAL THRESHOLD OF DAMAGE IS RUPTURE AND OR CORRUPTION AND OR INFECTION AND OR DESTRUCTION OF TISSUE OR BONES. THE AMOUNT OF HARM REQUIRED TO ENACT FIRST DIRECTIVE DEPENDS IN THE EXACT SURFACE."
"And what is it in the skin of her head?"
"TO RUPTURE AND OR CORRUPT AND OR INFECT AND OR DESTROY OVER TEN CENTIMETRES OF SKIN, TWENTY MILLIMETRES OF BONE, OR TO DO ANY PERCEIVABLE DAMAGE TO THE CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM."
