Dick Jones: Oh? On what charge?
RoboCop: Aiding and abetting a known felon.
Dick Jones: Sounds like I'm in a lot of trouble. You better take me in.
RoboCop: I will.
[Then RoboCop's Directive prevents him from arresting Jones, and is trying to fight it]
Dick Jones: What's the matter officer? I'll tell you what's the matter. It's a little insurance policy called "Directive 4", my little contribution to your psychological profile. Any attempt to arrest a senior officer of OCP results in shutdown. What did you think? That you were an ordinary police officer? You're our product, and we can't very well have our products turning against us, can we?
[RoboCop, trying to resist his Directive, draws his gun, but drops it]
Dick Jones: Ahh, still a little fight left in you. Maybe you'd like to meet a friend of mine.
[ED-209 marches into the room]
Dick Jones: I had to kill Bob Morton because he made a mistake. Now it's time to erase that mistake.

Hophead: [shouts] I said give me your money and all of it, and don't fuck with me!
[Hophead takes out a machine gun from his coat]
Hophead: Now move! Open the safe, pops. Open the god-damn safe!
Grocery Pop: We-we don't have a safe.
Hophead: Shit!
[Hophead kicks the display of beer cans that hides a safe]
Hophead: There's your god-damn safe! Open that son of a bitch! I'm gonna count to three and you'd better open that son of a bitch! Come on, come ON!
Hophead: [Points the gun at the mom's head] I'm gonna blow her brains out.
Grocery Pop: I'll open the safe.
Hophead: Good boy.
[the pop works on the safe]
Hophead: Come on! Well, you better open that on the count of three. One. Two.

RoboCop (2014)
Alex Murphy: Kind of suit is this?
Dr. Dennett Norton: It's not a... suit, Alex. It's... it-it's you. This was the only option. We're here, all of us, to make you whole again. Full body unlock. I want you to walk now, Alex. You can do that.
Alex Murphy: This seems so real.
Dr. Dennett Norton: Alex, it's-it's very important you understand what is happening. This is real. It's not a dream, i-it's not drugs or anesthetics.

Dr. Dennett Norton: Yes.
Alex Murphy: Okay. If I'm in control, then I wanna die. Just unplug whatever it is keepin' me alive and end this nightmare.
Dr. Dennett Norton: Now, say I did that - w-which is, as a doctor, would almost be impossible for me, but... but say I did. Wh... w-what do I say to your wife? What does she say to your son?
Alex Murphy: That it didn't work. That you tried. Somethin' went wrong. You did everything you could, but I died.
Dr. Dennett Norton: So after all they've been through, all the pain, all their hope restored, we would just rip that away? Your wife loves you, Alex. She signed the consent forms herself; otherwise, you couldn't have undergone the procedure. She loves you and she gave you a second chance. I need you to take it.
Alex Murphy: I don't wanna see myself like this again. Ever. And the same goes for my family. Just put me back in.

RoboCop: Dead or alive, you're coming with me.

Clara Murphy: Alex. You need to come home.
RoboCop: Clara, please stand aside.
Clara Murphy: You need to speak to your son.
RoboCop: Right now, I see three crimes in progress.
Clara Murphy: Alex, listen to me. I know you're in there. David won't show his face at school. He's having nightmares. He's falling apart. I am falling apart. Please. I can't do this on my own. He's been scared ever since that night.

RoboCop: Get down on the ground and put your hands behind your back.
Tom Pope: I-I'm just from marketing.
RoboCop: NOW!
Tom Pope: Okay, yep, yep, yep. Yep.

John Lake: Don't shoot me. Okay? I swear to Christ. It was Dean. She helped pulled those guns. Just don't shoot me.
RoboCop: Thank you for your cooperation.
[shoots Lake]
RoboCop: You can cuff him now, Jack.

Walter Karrel: DON'T SHOOT! DON'T SHOOT! Don't shoot, don't shoot, don't shoot!
RoboCop: Walter Karrel, look at me. You have two options. Option 1: I shoot you with 50,000 volts which may cause respiratory failure, organ malfunction, internal burns, and loss in bowel and bladder control and then I arrest you. Option 2: you tell me where John Bigg's drug lab is located and then I arrest you. You have two seconds to decide.
