Woody’s always been Andy’s favourite toy but when Andy’s mother gifts him Buzz Lightyear, a space-ranger, for his birthday, that becomes his favourite.

A risky option at hand

Total Recall’ is set in the year 2084. Douglas Quaid is a construction worker, who has been experiencing dreams about exploring the planet Mars with a brunette. After seeing an ad from Rekall, a company that sells imaginary adventures by implanting false memories, he decides to buy a “vacation” to Mars from them, one in which he will take a vacation from himself by becoming a spy. Rekall calls it an “ego trip”. 

Before buying the vacation, Quaid is cautioned by a co-worker that Rekall is risky and a memory implant failure lobotomises people, in reference to failed memory implants which caused the recipients to suffer permanent brain damage.
