Something has always bothered me about the scene in Terminator 2: Judgement Day in which the T-1000 goes to John's house and questions his foster parents about him.
T-1000: Are you the legal guardian of John Connor?
Todd Voight: That's right, Officer. What's he done now?
T-1000: Could I speak with him please?
Janelle Voight: You could if he were here. He just took off on his bike. So, he could be anywhere.
T-1000: Do you have a photograph of John?
Janelle Voight: Yeah, sure, hold on.
Todd Voight: Could you tell me what this is about?
T-1000: Just need to ask him a few questions.
[Janelle gives the photo to T-1000]
T-1000: He's a good looking boy. Do you mind if I keep this picture?
Janelle Voight: No, go on. There was a guy here this morning looking for him, too.
Todd Voight: Yeah, a big guy on a bike. Does that got something to do with this?
T-1000: No. I wouldn't worry about him. Thanks for your cooperation.
Pay attention to the last two lines, and think about what they mean.
A big, scary looking biker in a black leather jacket shows up at your house asking for your 10 year old foster son. Then a cop shows up, also asking about your 10 year old foster son. You ask the cop if his visit is related to the visit from the scary biker dude. The cop immediately says "No. I wouldn't worry about him".
The implication should be obvious: the cop obviously knows exactly who you are talking about, but says he has nothing to do with the reason that the cop wants to see your son.
This makes no sense. If the scary biker dude isn't someone you should be worried about, then why would a cop know exactly who the scary biker dude is based on such a vague description? And if the scary biker dude has nothing to do with the cop's visit, how does the cop know who he is, and why does the cop seem so unsurprised to hear that the scary biker dude has been there already?
More importantly, why didn't Todd notice the obvious problems with the cop's statements?
