** Even more of a brick joke when we discover that Plague's partner in crime and woman he's been sleeping with, Margo, is the one who the password belongs to (and he would probably know her sleep schedule).

* TechMarchesOn: 28.8 Kbps used to be fast. No more.
** Also, crashing 1,507 computers in a day is no longer that impressive.
*** Dade did that ten years earlier. ''In TheEighties''. And he hit the market so hard the NYSE dropped four points across the board. Nowadays he'd be in Gitmo until his hair fell out. Or [[MyGreatestSecondChance working for the NSA, FBI,]] or some other [[TheMenInBlack special government agency]], using his powers [[TheyFightCrime with other collared hackers to fight cyber-criminals]].
*** The NSA offers a scholarship program at MIT for students who will pursue a career with the agency. As he committed these hacks as a child, he'd probably be shortlisted for that program or something similar.



* WrongfulAccusationInsurance: [[spoiler:In the course of stopping the tankers from capsizing ([[ClearMyName the crime for which they were framed]]) and obtaining the evidence of the [[BigBad real villain's]] embezzlement scheme, the heroes wreck an incredibly expensive supercomputer, but the Secret Service apparently doesn't prosecute them for it, since we see the main character and his girlfriend living (more or less) happily ever after at the end. This is most likely because the truth (which was [[DoNotAdjustYourSet broadcast worldwide]] by other hackers) embarrassed the SS to no end The Plague manipulated the SS into assisting him in terrorism-for-blackmail.]]

** It is perhaps helpful to know that while the Secret Service is known for protecting The President, the vast majority of their time (and their original mission) is investigating financial crimes such as counterfeiting.

When the movie was made, the Secret Service was part of the Treasury Department.
