Demolition Man

Question: When Spartan is asking about his daughter, all I hear is "(mumble-mumble) happened to her?" Does anyone know what he actually says?

Chosen answer: From the subtitles I found and what I remembered I think his exact words were "And my daughter, what happened to her?"

Question: I remember seeing this movie multiple times years back, and i distinctly remember the restaurant being Taco Bell, why the sudden badly dubbed pizza hut in the new television version?

Chosen answer: A number of the European releases of the film replaced Taco Bell with Pizza Hut, as Pizza Hut has a significant international presence, whereas Taco Bell is relatively unknown outside the US, with very few restaurants. While most versions around these days keep the US original dialogue, the altered versions do occasionally crop up, particularly on television.

Question: Why was Simon allowed a damn at the joy joy feeling machine thingy while John was fined for one while talking to his friend?

Chosen answer: I'm assuming you're referring to when Simon says "Damn, I'm possessed!" He was hacking the machine when he said it, perhaps he'd corrupted the program or shut off the microphone as a side effect?

Answer: Phoenix has no sub-dermal microchip in his hand. Per Huxley, all transactions are done with this chip. That would mean fines are also generated per person based on this chip too.

Question: As Phoenix is using the computer stand on the street and accessing Edgar Friendly's info, a box pops up on the screen with a phrase and then Phoenix's name at the end. What does that box say? I've tried pausing it and watching in slo-mo, but its picture is blurred on my screen.

Chosen answer: The box reads, "You have accessed secure mailbox facilities for...Simon Phoenix."

Question: Does the book 'Brave New World' upon which 'Demolition Man' is based reference the three seashells in the bathroom or is it just a bit of comic relief in the movie ?

Chosen answer: For a start, the question is seriously flawed: Demolition Man is not based on Brave New world. The only similarity between the two is that that both are set in conformist future societies. There are a few references in the movie to that book (for example, the character name Lenina Huxley is a combination of BNW character Lenina Crowne and the book's author, Aldous Huxley); but to the best of my knowledge, the "three seashells" was not one of them.

Question: Does anyone know what that whole "three sea shells" thing is all about? Was there anything that let us know exactly how they worked?

Chosen answer: No, they kept it a joke throughout the movie.

Mistakes

When Spartan and Huxley arrive at the cryogenics place to battle Phoenix and what remains of his gang, Phoenix sees them on the monitor walking into the building and you see Spartan on the left and Huxley on the right. The camera angle changes to an inside view and Spartan is now on the right.
