  • RoboCop: Dead or alive, you are coming with me.
    Kane: One of us must die.
    RoboCop: Dead, then.
  • _:Cain: People want paradise, and they will have it.
  • [Robocop shoots at man with cigarette]

  • In the scene where Robocop was being reprogrammed by Dr. Juliette Faxx, the following hex numbers scroll quickly up the screen: "50 45 54 45 20 4B 55 52 41 4E 20 49 53 20 41 20 47 52 45 41 54 20 47 55 59". Converted to ASCII text, it reads: "PETE KURAN IS A GREAT GUY". Peter Kuran was the special effects photographer.
  • Robocop 2/Cain's metal body has the symbol for nuclear radiation attached to the chest. For most of the film, Cain produces & deals the designer drug Nuke.
  • The point-of-view shots from Robocop include references to MS-DOS, while the point-of-view shots from Robocop 2 feature a Apple MacIntosh-style interface, with a skull instead of the Apple logo.
  • Frank Miller makes a cameo as "Frank", the chemist who makes the drug "Nuke" for Cain.
