Movie Quote(s):
  • Benny: [to Mary, the three-breasted hooker] Baby, you make me wish I had three hands.
  • Douglas Quaid: If I am not me, then who the hell am I?
  • Douglas Quaid: I'll be back!
  • Lori: Doug, honey... you wouldn't hurt me, would you, sweetheart? Sweetheart, be reasonable. After all, we're married! [Lori goes for her gun, Quaid shoots her in the head, killing her] Douglas Quaid: Consider that a divorce!

Movie Trivia:
  • As many as seven directors were considered for and even hired to direct the movie, including Richard Rush, Bruce Beresford and David Cronenberg. Cronenberg had even written a few drafts of the script before Paul Verhoeven took over the Total Recall (1990) project.
  • Over 40 drafts of the script were written, some of which depicted Quaid as a mild-mannered accountant (instead of a construction worker). According to Paul Verhoeven, although there were many changes made to each of the scripts, the final draft of the script was very similar to the first draft.
  • Johnnycab whistles the Norwegian national anthem.
  • Robert Picardo was voice of and facial model for the "Johnnycab" robot.
  • When Quaid is dressed up as the fat lady, the passport he hands the guard is the actual passport of Priscilla Allen (who played the fat lady).
