Total Recall turns 25: 10 classic scenes from the original movie

By
Back in 2012 Total Recall was rebooted with a modern, sparkly remake that was big on FX if a little lacking in depth.

You may not remember (ahem) this feature we ran rounding up our top 10 scenes, but as this week marks the 25th anniversary of Paul Verhoeven and Arnold Schwarzenegger's 1990 classic we've decided to Recall it for you.

1. "Consider that a divorce"


Doug Quaid puts an end to his marriage to Lori (Sharon Stone) with a bloody full stop.

2 "Be careful, it's my head too"


Hauser tells Quaid how to get that remarkably large tracker out of his nose.

3. Three is a magic number...


The bit everyone down the pub mentions when talking about Total Recall.

4. "Hah, hah, hah! You think this is the real Quaid? It is."


Is it a hologram? Is it Quaid? These guards find out the hard way.

5. "Start the reactor"


… free Mars!

6. "I got five kids to feed"


Benny (Mel Johnson Jr)'s mutant cab driver explains his actions.

7. Johnny Cab


Even in the future, technology is less than perfect.

8. "Screw youuuuuuu!"


The Simpsons' McBain never delivered a pun as good as this.

9. "If I'm not me, who the hell am I?"


Quaid has an identity crisis.

10. "Best mind-flip yet"


A pretty-much spot-on summary of Total Recall.
