  • RoboCop: Excuse me, I have to go. Somewhere there is a crime happening.
  • Dick Jones: I had to kill Bob Morton because he made a mistake. Now it's time to erase that mistake.
  • Lewis: I just asked him his name.
    Morton: Let me make something clear to you. He doesn't have a name. He has a program. He's product.
  • RoboCop: Come quietly or there will be... trouble.
  • RoboCop: I'm not arresting you anymore.


  • The costume was so hot and heavy that Peter Weller was losing three pounds a day from water loss. Eventually, an air conditioner was installed in the costume.
  • The point-of-view shots from Robocop include references to MS-DOS.
  • Paul Verhoeven makes a cameo dancing in the disco, looking into the camera, when Leon is arrested.
  • Two scenes storyboarded, but never filmed were: a scene where RoboCop visits his grave, and a long car chase which was an alternate scene that got them to the old steel mill (place Murphy died). The car chase was after Robo removed his helmet, and had Robo and Lewis break up a riot, followed by a shootout with Joe and Emil (with their military guns seen at the film's end). Eventually, they retreated to their cars where there was a car chase to the old steel mill.
  • RoboCop's gun was actually a modified Beretta M93R: The barrel was extended and modified to resemble a casket. The weapon has three settings: single shot, three-round-burst (which was used in the film), and full-automatic.
