In two scenes in TR, we briefly see some additional plastic card props that Quaid acquires from his safety deposit box and his apartment. I’m going to list as many as I can distinguish here:

Briefly visible in Total Recall, when Quaid dumps out his briefcase, is a red pamphlet with two staples and the text “HOFFMAN.” My theory is that this contains Quaid’s shuttle ticket to Mars. I refer you to this line from the script, dated August 22, 1989:
Quaid sets the satchel on an assembly line apparatus and
removes the contents: Packets of MARTIAN MONEY. Quaid
whistles to himself as he flips through the RED BANK NOTES. A
few false IDENTITY CARDS with photos we can’t clearly see. A
SPACE SHUTTLE TICKET TO MARS, FIRST CLASS. A weird SURGICAL
INSTRUMENT sealed in clear plastic. A WRIST WATCH.
I thought this would be a fun idea. And it would have been, if there weren’t 3 different iPhone screen sizes in circulation (or more).
Here’s where I am this evening:
