** DownplayedTrope, Calvin might be a little more than "HollywoodHomely," but isn't portrayed as gorgeous either.



** The whole scene is this compared to the previous, with gems such as Calvin asking if Spooner ''ever'' has a normal day, and him replying "Once. [[ButForMeItWasTuesday It was a Thursday.]]"

* BrickJoke: When Spooner tells his Gran that the robots don't do people any good, she says that that he all of people should know better. [[spoiler: It is later revealed that USR, the same company that makes the robots, also gave him a cybernetic arm after an accident.]]

* [[AntiIntellectualism Anti-Intellectualism]]: Spooner smacks of several flavors of this, but mainly anti-robotics. Though it's implied that the anti-robotic sentiment is the source of all the rest of it. Spooner likes feeling in control of his life, and driving his own car, hitting buttons to turn on his music, and buying vintage clothing and vehicles is part of that.

* ProstheticLimbReveal: Detective Spooner was involved in a car crash some years back, but seems to have come out of it relatively unscathed [[spoiler:until an NS-5 robot tries to bludgeon him to death, which he wards off with his arm, which does not break and is revealed to be mechanical with a flesh colored covering. Dr. Calvin doesn't even realize he has it until she sees him without his shirt. It's also how Spooner came to know the late Dr. Lanning, the leading mind in robotics, since Lanning had created the arm]].

* ColdEquation: Spooner was once in a car accident where both cars plunged into the river. The driver of the other car died on impact, but a little girl was still alive. When a robot came to aid the humans, it didn't have enough time to save both and chose Spooner because he had a higher probability of survival. This event led Spooner to harbor hatred for robots as unfeeling machines, saying that any human would have chosen to save the little girl no matter the odds.
