** Or Cocteau allows a very small cadre of people to be trained in violence as a coast guard... but they're never allowed to set foot on land or call home again. It's the exact sort of callously "necessary" thing he'd come up with.

** He was either thinking he'd keep him around as a sort of attack dog or put him back into cryostasis. Perhaps a mix of both, just occasionally thawing Phoenix out when he needed to use him for some purpose like eliminating a rogue element or stirring things up for propaganda. He thought he had way more control over Phoenix than he did, likely in part due to the fact that his social engineering has turned the society into a minor cult of personality with him at its head.

** The implication seems to be that the ground cracked open and sections of the city actually did drop into the underground, yes. The "Big One" seems to have been major enough for that.

** Remember that the San Angeles Utopia turns out to be a dystopia controlled by an "Evil Mister Rogers". Procreation is done in a lab. The doctors don't have to have a cure for Tourette's; just an early way to identify it (or markers that may possibly raise the risk of it) and an unfortunate pregnancy failure that was unquestionably a natural miscarriage and definitely not an abortion, because abortions are illegal, you see. Here, let's run this test. Honey, we're going to give you a special shot to make everything better. Oh dear, you are having a medical event. Never fear; we will handle it properly.

** I think the interview answer was along the lines of the 'what was in the box' for CastAway. "It was a plot device / throwaway gag, quit thinking so much about it."

** Mind you, we don't know ''whom'' she called. She might have wanted to invite her BFF for a shopping spree for all we know.

** There also seems to be a bit of a FreeLoveFuture in play. With sex only taking place through VR, a lot of the bonds, commitments, and risks are gone, and the woman who accidentally calls Spartan doesn't seem particularly embarrassed about it (no more embarrassed than anyone would be by a wrong number). So why not show off some for someone else?

*** Take ''Literature/TheNakedSun'', for example. Not just physical contact; physical presence of another person is considered {{Squick}} bordering on NightmareFuel, but someone insisting on people video calling him while dressed is about the same as a person insisting on his family only leaving the home with a necktie on. Everyone is "what's this gotta do with it".

** Some of the amendments may have been to repeal earlier amendments, like the 21st amendment repealed the 18th amendment (prohibition).
