** The end of the world is started by a man yelling and riding on top of a phallic bomb to a site called "Laputa" (Spanish for "the whore"). It triggers a series of climatic explosions.

** Ambassador [[MeaningfulName DeSadesky]] accuses General Turgidson of trying to plant a spy camera on him, and is later shown with another spy camera. This means that either Turgidson always carries a spy camera in case of such an eventuality, or the Russian ambassador carried ''two'' spy cameras.

* ProperlyParanoid: General Turgidson on the Russian ambassador, who takes a photo of TheBigBoard with a camera disguised as a pocket watch (or a pocket watch with an integrated camera) at the end. It's ambiguous if the miniature camera really was his or if Turgidson actually planted it on him.

Added DiffLines:

* SpyCam: The Russian ambassador is accused of trying to take pictures of the War Room using a camera disguised as a pack of cigarettes. The ambassador claims that the spy camera was planted. It turns out that the ambassador was telling the truth - his spy camera was disguised as his pocket watch (unless you believe that the ambassador brought two hidden cameras with him).

One day, General [[GeneralRipper Jack D. Ripper]] (Sterling Hayden) goes mental. He orders the nuclear bombers under his command to carry out a surprise attack on the Soviet Union. He puts his entire military base in lockdown with all communications cut, ordering all radios confiscated (so that Communist infiltrators can't receive outside commands) and all troops to fire on anyone who tries to enter the base, even if they appear to be fellow Americans (because they will surely be Communists in disguise). Ripper's aide, British Group Captain Lionel Mandrake (Creator/PeterSellers), tries to talk sense into him but shortly realizes his boss has gone right out of his pointy little mind, believing that only he stands in the way of a Communist plot to contaminate America's "precious bodily fluids."

In Washington, U.S. President Merkin Muffley (Peter Sellers again) holds a meeting in the War Room with his top advisors. While the head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Buck Turgidson (Creator/GeorgeCScott), sees the crisis as an opportunity to hit the Russkies where they live once and for all, the President's [[GeniusCripple wheelchair-bound]], [[NazisWithGnarlyWeapons ex-Nazi]] [[MadScientist science advisor]], Dr. Strangelove (also Peter Sellers), and the Soviet ambassador (Peter Bull) both confirm that an attack on the USSR will trigger [[DoomsdayDevice The Doomsday Machine]]: a computer programmed to [[SuicidalCosmicTemperTantrum detonate a cobalt bomb that will kill nearly all life on Earth's surface with its radiation over the course of months, if the Soviet Union is attacked (or if any attempt is made to disable the Doomsday Machine]]). The president gets on the hotline and desperately attempts to convince the drunken Soviet premier that the American attack is just a silly mistake as they attempt to call off the attack.
