* LampshadeHanging: In the first movie Newton asks Ben where the hell he's from, since he's clearly not ethnically Indian despite the exaggerated accent. It turns out ''he'' was born and raised in New Delhi, but his family is from Pittsburgh.

This could be read as an admission that he's a white guy who's just eccentric, but the ending of the second movie shows he isn't an American citizen up to that point.

* ThenLetMeBeEvil: Not ''evil'' of course, but Johnny 5 spends a large part of the second movie trying to be human. After [[spoiler:Oscar's henchmen smash him up and leave him for dead]], Johnny finally decides he's had enough of that fruitless project because, if humans are going to mistreat him that badly, he doesn't ''need'' to be human.
-->'''Johnny:''' Am not human, but ''am a life form!''

** Standard fare for Johnny-Five. With most of his fairly short life spent interacting with only about a half-dozen humans in any significant way, the majority of his experience and knowledge comes from the piles upon piles of books he's read.

Added DiffLines:

* CallBack: Number Five's "Today, Crosby, today!" line in the first movie is a call back to two previous scenes in the same movie, where Skroeder ordered his men using a similar line ("Today, gentlemen, today!").


Added DiffLines:

* MythologyGag: The movie playing on the TV (in the scene where Number Five and Stephanie dance) is Film/SaturdayNightFever, one of John Badham's previous movies.
