I got every single reference in about:robots. Should I be worried?

Don't bother worrying, Brian. There's no hope for you.

If we divide it into 11 statements, I got 4 1/2 of them, I think.

Klaatu Barada Nikto!
(I thought Army of Darkness but was wrong, so this counts as 1/2)
Welcome Humans!
We have come to visit you in peace and with goodwill!
Robots may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
I, Robot - Isaac Asimov
Robots have seen things you people wouldn't believe.
Robots are Your Plastic Pal Who's Fun To Be With.
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy - Douglas Adams (Sirius Cybernetics marketing literature)
Robots have shiny metal posteriors which should not be bitten.
Futurama - Matt Groening et al (Bender)
And they have a plan.

The first two are from the movie "The Day The Earth Stood Still".

Coyote's "I, for one, welcome our new robot overlords" link title was said in GTA Vice City on one of the radio shows. I'm just wondering if I'm missing a common reference that I should be made aware of.

"Robots have seen things you people wouldn't believe."

If I remember correctly, this quote is from Blade Runner.
