Repo Man
Bob Cantor Presents
everything you ever wanted to know about Repo Man.
"If it isn't here, it doesn't exist."

"Never broke into a car. Never hot-wired a car. Kid, I never broke into a trunk." - Bud

The Repo Code

I shall not cause harm to any vehicle nor the personal contents thereof, nor through inaction let that vehicle or the personal contents thereof come to harm.

"That's what I call the repo code, kid. Don't forget it, etch it in your brain. Not many people got a code to live by anymore." - Bud

For comparison, here is Isaac Asimov's first law of Robotics:
A robot may not injure a human being, or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.

It has been suggested that J. Frank Parnell resembles Asimov and wears the same type of glasses.

As he is dying, Dr. Soberin utters this dire warning about a mysterious glowing box which disintegrates anyone who opens it:
"Listen to me, as if I were Cerberus barking with all his heads at the gates of hell. I will tell you where to take it, but don't... don't open it!"
Dr. G.E. Soberin (Kiss Me Deadly, 1955)
