* GeniusBonus: Early on, Chandra plans to do a dry run of repairing HAL by putting SAL through the same process. He calls the project "Phoenix." When he asks SAL if she knows what he's referencing, she bypasses the obvious answer and suggests he means, "the tutor of Achilles." If you have some knowledge of Greek mythology, you can work out that SAL is [[DeadpanSnarker subtly teasing Chandra.]] Chandra gets the joke and [[ActuallyPrettyFunny can't help laughing.]]

* VindicatedByHistory: Time has freed the baggage of the film as a sequel to Kubrick's work, and it's much more appreciated now, especially with the separate questions ''it'' raises about human nature and life.

* NightmareFuel: When Heywood tells HAL that he can't do something drastic without knowing who's sending the message, HAL replies, "He says, I understand. LookBehindYou." The orchestral warning and the OhCrap look on Heywood's face makes for a seriously spooky moment.

** In this movie, Heywood Floyd has a much more down-to-earth and blue-collar personality than his officious, patrician portrayal in ''2001''.

** In this movie, Heywood Floyd has a much more down-to-earth and blue-collar personality than his officious, patrician portrayal in ''2001''. Although this could easily be explained by his fall from grace due to the events of the first film.

*** We also don't ''really'' know if Heywood was telling the truth when he claimed he didn't know about HAL's secondary instructions.
