%%* DiabolusExMachina * DiabolusExMachina: Lowry manages to sneak into the office of his boss completely undetected and change Jill's information so she's believed dead by the system and they won't hunt her down... [[spoiler:and they only have enough time for about one night of sex before an assault teams barges into Lowry's mother's house, arrest him and kill her.]] Things only get a hell of a lot worse from there [[spoiler:for Sam, but wait, the rebels help him escape! Nope, it's his torture-induced HappyPlace.]]



* DieselPunk: TropeCodifier.

to:

* DieselPunk: TropeCodifier. All of the technology is pretty much that ''of'' or based on that of TheForties and TheFifties, such as the vehicle that Sam borrows (and gives him severe trouble later) being a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Messerschmitt_KR200 Messerschmitt KR200 microcar.]]



* HappinessInMinimumWage: Sam is perfectly content with working on Information Adjustment as a lowly drone (that Mr. Helpmann is friendly and trusty to), daydreaming away. His mother insists on trying to use her influences to put him in a higher position to his constant protesting. The only reason he accepts a transfer to a higher office is because it's the only way he will get the security clearance to read Jill's file.



%%* InherentInTheSystem

to:

%%* InherentInTheSystem* InherentInTheSystem: Incompetency up the wazoo, and many atrocities are committed because nobody has the drive to either double-check the information to prevent mistakes, or to assume responsibility. All information is correct, and if it's not, it's some other department's business. Even if that means misnaming your own wife for life... or arresting (and then killing) someone wrongfully accused.

* SoulCrushingDeskJob: Harry Tuttle has eluded capture by State agents, and tries to earn a living working for Mister Warrenn. Harry is taken through a bleak and dingy building to a narrow office with minimal furnishings, and is welcomed thusly: " There you are: your own number on your very own door. And behind that door, your very own office. Welcome to the team, DZ-015!" Oddly, Harry is never told exactly what he's supposed to ''do'' in that office, and the only reason this job doesn't become a mindless tedium is that Harry finds himself in a tug-of-war for desk space with the neighbouring office.
