I had it too in the exact same place.
It went away after me and it got into a little 'argument' one night after work. It was yapping as it always does probably about how hard I drive the car home or something, and me being in a sour mood decided to put it into it's place. BAM, my right fist, which I have given the moniker "the Hammer", impacts it's plasticy face and it ceases to make any further statements. It would occasionally make a quip every once in a while, but to remind it of our previous scuffle, I would tap it and it would enter what I like to call "The Silence Zone".
