John Henry:
Human life is sacred.
Catherine Weaver:
We have to be prepared for any contingency.
John Henry:
What contingency would that be?
Catherine Weaver:
Humans will disappoint you.

Dr. Robert Ford:
Never place your trust in us. We’re only human. Inevitably we will disappoint you.

Is this a coincidence?

Or, is Jonathan Nolan a big Terminator fan?

Or, are both these lines allusions to something earlier?

The CEO of the company I used to work for (bought out by a gigantic consulting firm) used to say “People disappoint me.” Maybe he got it from the same place.


#3

Or maybe they are all just pointing out the obvious…


#4

Well, Jonathan Nolan also created Person of Interest, where humans disappointing the Machine was a recurring theme (especially in the third season).


#5

FTFY


#7

Kirk: let me tell you something Spock. Everybodys human.
Spock: I’ve never been so insulted.


#8

That was only fair, because the third season disappointed humans.


#9

I liked it. Better than the fourth season, at least. Taking a whole season to have Samaritan go from “almost totally in charge” to “really totally in charge” was a bit much.
