Corrected entry: Danny Devito was going after the $5 million for the stolen fuel injection system. At the end, when he and Arnold are reminiscing, he talks about it as $4 million dollars.

Correction: He only turned in 4 million, keeping 1 million for himself.

Corrected entry: The two men (who left the car for Webster) told Webster the "parking attendant" liked the car. However, there are many different parking attendants with different shifts and exits in a big place like LAX. How did Webster instantly pinpoint the right one?

Correction: Webster knows when and where the car was dropped off. It's a good bet that attendant works that lot regularly. Even if he doesn't it wouldn't be hard at all to ask another attendant to tell you who was working that lot on a particular day. The fact that Webster eventually finds the right person doesn't mean that he "instantly" found the right person. We just aren't shown every step he takes because that wouldn't be interesting.

Corrected entry: Vincent named his calico cat Julius, which is a masculine name. Barring a rare genetic abnormality (approximately 1 in 3,000), calico cats are always female.

Correction: According to the submitter's own words, male calico cats do exist, though rare. So there is no mistake.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Arnold runs into the house for a shower and Danny DeVito jumps into the car, Marne goes into the house with some cookies, and Arnold has already showered and almost dried off, quite a quick rinse really..

Correction: A quick shower is not a mistake. Julius (Schwarzenegger) would be used to bathing quickly, considering he grew up on a desert island where there was little time or need for taking long showers or baths.

Other mistake: When Devito sends Arnold into the house to get his stuff and go with him to New Mexico and Houston, Devito quickly jumps into the car to drive off. (You can see on the long street behind him that there are no cars coming). Yet, not one second has gone by and you are looking at him from the front of the car and Linda and her sister pull up behind him blocking him in the driveway. They turned in from the left which was the same stretch of street you were looking at with no cars on it just one moment earlier. (00:48:40)

Question: There are 2 doctors who don't inform the twins that their mother is alive, but the first one remains a friend and the other is the bad guy. Why the difference?

John Henry Spencer

Chosen answer: Although I wouldn't call one a bad guy, Professor Werner is the the one who raised Julius, and would remain a friend because of this bond. Mary Ann (the twins' mother) however, was told that Julius died at birth and was never told about Vincent. She blames Professor Traven for this (probably since he's the only one around to yell at). Vincent on the other hand was never told his mother died during childbirth and he grew up thinking his mother abandoned him. Until Julius showed up, he never knew he was part of an experiment and he had no knowledge of either doctors and probably no feelings regarding either of them.
