I, Robot - Calculating the Odds of Survival
This is a very subtle slip-up. When Spooner relates his automobile accident to Calvin, he says his experience as a cop told him that there would be no survivors. The robot rescues him but not Sarah because his odds of survival were calculated at 45% but Sarah’s odds were only 11%. Spooner then says, “A cop would have known that.” Well, he’s a cop and he didn’t know it because he gave everybody up for dead.

He says "a cop would have known that" in relation to his feeling that priority should have been given to the little girl, not in relation to the cop knowing the odds. Additionally, he makes his statement about no one surviving based on the circumstances before the robot arrives (i.e., he's saying that without outside intervention neither of them would have survived--the robot's subsequent action changed the odds).
