* While a crowning moment of funny on Robo's part, after saving the girl from being raped, the first thing she does is thank him and hug him, not even caring that the officer that saved her is part machine.
* During the Unveiling, everyone's applauding Robocop on his first appearance. Morton himself is the top crowner of this as rather than make it all about him, he lets Robo know the applause is all for him. [[note]]This is arguably undermined by the fact that it was Morton who deliberately put Murphy in harm's way in the first place because of his suitability for the project[[/note]]
--> '''Morton:''' Come on, that's for you!!!
* It's minor but when the DPD are sent in to gun down Robo, quite a few of them, not just Lewis have a objection with the line "He's a cop" showing that quite a few of his fellow Police have looked past the machine and come to see Robo as one of their own.
* Sgt. Reed, the PapaBear of the police precinct. He doesn't take shit from anyone, even with his job on the line, and jumps to his fellow officers' defense any time he has to.
-->'''Lewis:''' Sorry, Sarge. I fucked up.
-->'''Reed:''' Forget it, kid. This guy's a serious asshole.

Added DiffLines:

** She also only knew the wholly human Murphy for less than one day.

Added DiffLines:

** It's made even better by the fact that she doesn't need to be on duty ''at all'', since most cops are on strike by that point.

* When Robo reveals that Dick Jones had Robocop's creator killed, Johnson (who was Morton's friend) jumps up and looks like he's ready to kill Dick ''himself.''

Also when Jones is about to fall through the window, Johnson gets up with a smile as he sees his friend avenged. Afterwards he gives Robo a congratulatory and thankful thumbs up.


* Just after Robocop finds out Alex Murphy was KIA and goes to his former home to investigate. His house is up for sale but there are still some mementos that trigger his memories. Peter Weller's magnificent acting (when ONLY HIS MOUTH IS VISIBLE), conveying the realization of what Murphy has lost and how his life is changed forever should at least make you swallow hard. If it doesn't, you don't have a soul. And then as he storms through the house the music is a sorrowful rendition of "Rock Shop", AKA [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome THE Robocop theme]].

* When Robocop shows up in the board meeting to arrest Dick for the second time, the Old Man politely ask "How may we help you, officer?". Think about it, the CEO of a [[MegaCorp highly corrupt company]] that largely [[ItIsDehumanizing view Rob' as a object]] refered him as a human being!

Added DiffLines:

** The drunk scientist who kisses him is incredibly sweet, especially since Murphy worries about how he intimidates people after his humanity resurfaces.
