When a man goes for virtual vacation memories of the planet Mars, an unexpected and harrowing series of events forces him to go to the planet for real - or does he?
In Die Hard (1988), John McClane arrives at Nakatomi Tower and uses a computerized touchscreen to find his wife; When Quaid first arrives at the Rekall building, he uses a computerized touchscreen directory to find a Mr. McLane.
Doug? Honey, are you all right?
Lori: You were dreaming. Doug? Was it about Mars?
Lori: Is that better?
Douglas Quaid: Hmm.
Lori: My poor baby. This is getting to be an obsession.
When Quaid passes through the security x-ray checkpoint, an audible recording can be heard advising travelers that they are entering a safety zone and no unauthorized weapons are allowed beyond this point. Later in the movie when Quaid is being pursued by Richter and his goons, he triggers an alert on the x-ray scanner with the gun he hid under his shirt, alerting the security officers. As they move behind the x-ray scanner to try to subdue Quaid, their guns also trigger an alert on the scanner, even though the officers' weapons would obviously be authorized.
