Surrogates
It's easy to jack your entire nervous system into a synthetic robot, just lie down on a sun-bed and put an eye-patch on.

    Surrogates
    In the future rather than hook up your surveillance system to supercomputers which can identify anything you like, just have a bunch of bored retirees watching the screens via robots. It's much more efficient.

      Surrogates
      The people who control surrogates all look really tired, even though they lie around all day doing nothing.

        Surrogates
        If you've built a secret lair from which you plan to launch your operation to destroy many of the world's population, it's good to a/leave the secret door unlocked b/make sure there's a gap under the door so any idiot can find it c/have a completely useless security force who fail to do anything about intruders.

          The people who control surrogates are all wearing pyjamas and dressing gowns.

            Surrogates
            If you already look like a movie star your surrogate will look exactly like you after a seriously good make-over.

              If your teleconferencing system for firing people is effective and saves a fortune in travel expenses, it's natural to decide to change your mind about using it, mainly so George Clooney can go to an airport for an existential moment before the end-credits.

                If you want to test a teleconferencing system for firing people in remote locations, it's best to use it to fire someone in the next room.

                  Characters who are completely sure of their world-view and status (especially if it's completely superficial), are always partnered up with a character who challenges everything they believe in and threatens their comfortable way of life.

                    Guys who get cold feet before getting married are likely to have no parents, friends and siblings around to counsel them, so they end up having to talk to their fiances' brother who everyone thinks is a cold, distant asshole.

                      If someone says "nice touch" to your sales pitch in a condescending manner, it's cool to repeat it back to them after they've said something that will stop you from making a disastrous decision.

                        Hilton Hotels have a really great rewards programme. They just said so (with only a tiny bit of irony). And their logos on the sides of their hotels look great. We just saw three of them (with no irony at all).

                          If we're over half-way through the film and the leading man and woman seem to be absolutely perfect together, then something bad is definitely going to happen soon.

                            Firing people for a living is actually a really impressive, high-flying job, especially if you're over 40 and look like George Clooney.

                              When you're designing a hi-tech Ark for survival during the apocalypse, it's standard practice that the engines will auto-disable if the rear gate isn't completely closed - and *nothing* can over-ride this.

                                Although he's spent three years conspiring, preparing for the apocalypse, sanctioning murders of whistleblowers and spending billions on the the Arks, the President of the US, will suddenly decide the 'do the right thing' a few hours before the shit goes down.
