Quotes:

  • RoboCop: Dead or alive, you're coming with me!
     
  • RoboCop: They'll fix you. They fix everything.
     
  • RoboCop: Come quietly or there will be... trouble.
     
  • Dick Jones: I had to kill Bob Morton because he made a mistake. Now it's time to erase that mistake.
     
  • Murphy: Role models are important.
     

Trivia:

  • For the theatrical trailer Orion used the music from the Terminators arrival in The Terminator which is also a movie about a machine in human form.
     
  • The movie was supposed to have custom-built police cars built on Camaro chassis. However, the day the first car arrived on the set, everybody took one look at it and burst into laughter. The decision was then made to use the Ford Taurus SHO.
     
  • The song "Show Me Your Spine" by P.T.P. is playing in the club when RoboCop arrests Leon. This song, which features vocals by Nivek Ogre of Skinny Puppy, has never been released in any format and can only be heard in this scene.
     
  • ED-209's voice is that of producer Jon Davison. ED-209's body was based on the design of a Bell helicopter and the overall appearance is reminiscent of a line of toys named Robotech which were based on an 1980s animated cartoon series.
     
  • The point-of-view shots from the Robocop's perspective were created with Amiga Video Toaster.
