Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines

Easter egg: On disc 2, go to the Skynet Database (answer to the question is "Brewster") and select the first Information Stream "Human Archive Intelligence". You'll then have a list of profiles to access showing. To find the Easter egg you must go on John Connor's profile or Kate Brewster's profile. After opening the profile, characteristics of the character will start. Just as this happens, push the right button followed by the up button. A red square will be circled around the clip on the top right hand side of the screen. As this is happening, push play and you will see a behind the scenes clip of the actor or actress' time on set (depending which profile you access). If you access John Connor's profile you will see a clip of Nick Stahl's time on set as John Connor. If you access Kate Brewster's profile you will see a clip of Claire Danes' time on set as Kate Brewster.

More trivia for Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines

Question: Why did John Connor program the Terminator to only obey Catherine's orders? Since he is the boss wouldn't he make it so the Terminator would obey his orders?

Answer: He didn't program the Terminator, she did - remember, John is dead, successfully eliminated by that very Terminator. As to why she didn't program the Terminator to obey both of them, that's an open question - possibly she needed to supply a voiceprint which obviously couldn't be obtained from the deceased John (which would also explain why the Terminator in T2 appeared to only be programmed to obey John, not both John and his mother). Alternatively, it's plausible that the Terminators can only be programmed to obey one individual, in order to prevent problems in the case of conflicting orders.
