Joel cites the film as his favorite.
"It's the Forbin Project!"
The V.I.K.I. computer wanted to take over the world in an effort to protect mankind from itself just like the super computers in "Colossus".
John Henry says "There is another, another like me" this is the same message Colossus sends when it detects the Soviet computer.
Contains backmasked dialogue from Proteus' final speech
Upon discussing A.I.'s with Snake, Strangelove used this movie as an example of what would happen if an A.I. were to try to destroy mankind.
Claudia: We're the two biggest techno-brains in the Dakotas and we're totally getting our asses kicked by Colossus.
Mom says, "This is Colossus, the Beanstalk Project."
One of the clips shown at the beginning of "Little Girl Lost" includes a shot of the Colossus computer, identifiable by its mark of a large C inside of a triangle.
