Why didn't Quaid keep the fat lady cover?


... after arriving on Mars? It was a perfect disguise.

I wondered the same thing, but it seemed the "costume" was some sort of bio-mechanical apparatus that suffered a system failure of some kind. It didn't make sense that Quaid would intentionally abandon that guise until he was out of sight of the authorities.

And besides, it exploded. Pretty sure he would not have access to another head like that.

I think that because it's a perfect disguise they had to have the "2 weeks" malfunction so that it would make sense to have Arnie back as Quaid in the lead role. I mean who wants to see an action movie starring that woman?
