* InnocentlyInsenstive: When Rupert talks about how imperfection is the key to making a realistic face, Andrew makes numerous comments about how imperfect Rupert's head and face are. To his credit, Rupert only does minor double takes and chalks it up to Andrew's honesty.

* AManIsNotAVirgin: Rupert, with shades of HollywoodNerd.
-->'''Rupert:''' What do they say (about sex)?
-->'''Andrew:''' That you can lose yourself. Everything. All boundaries. All time. That two bodies can become so mixed up, that you don't know who's who or what's what. And just when the sweet confusion is so intense you think you're gonna die... you kind of do. Leaving you alone in your separate body, but the one you love is still there. That's a miracle. You can go to heaven and come back alive. You can go back anytime you want with the one you love.
-->'''Rupert:''' And you want to experience that?
-->'''Andrew:''' Oh, yes, please.
-->'''Rupert:''' So do I.
** Though that line could also mean that he hasn't experienced anything to that ''level'' of passion. Not every fling is a mind-blowing one, after all.

* ReedRichardsIsUseless: Averted twice. First, Andrew decides to sell the many clocks and sculptures he makes, which by the time of his first upgrade makes wealthier than the CEO of the company that built him. Much later, a by-product of Andrew's attempt to become more human leads him to create artificial organs so perfect that they can be used in actual humans, which he then begins to sell to hospitals. Its implied by the end of the film that Andrew has become ridiculously wealthy from all his endeavors.

* ArcWords: "This will not do." With those four words, first spoken when Little Miss passes away, Andrew memorizes every medical textbook available ''in the world'' and makes artificial organs and DNA elixirs that take a profound leap from the technological to the biological (and allow humans to essentially live forever). When he says those words again after Portia tells him they'd never be accepted, he goes on a campaign to earn full rights as a human being.
