Funny / RoboCop 3

Go To

  • The hapless would-be robber who tries holding up a donut shop full of cops. The clerk quips, "what's it like being a rocket scientist?"
    • "Isn't someone going to arrest me?"
  • RoboCop's Flashed-Badge Hijack. It starts with Robo requesting a car from a pimp who's looking the other way. The pimp turns around pissed and holding a switchblade, sees RoboCop and obediently gives up the car keys.
  • The POV shots of the rebels, only one of whom is qualified, trying to fix Robocop. This includes Bertha getting the wrong heart and Moreno accidentally causing a leak with a drill.
  • Leon, a conspiracy theorist arguing with Sergeant Reed.
    Leon: Sarge, you got a RoboCop, you got an alien cop? You got a ghost cop? You got a vampire cop?
    Reed: Leon, I told you I don't have time for this.
    • The fact that Reed is on First-Name Basis with Leon, implying this is something he deals with regularly.
  • RoboCop casually waltzing into the police station and talking to Sergeant Reed, while his arm currently has its machine-gun attachment.
    Reed: Murphy!
    Robo: Good evening, Sergeant Reed.
    Reed: Did you know there's a warrant out for your arrest?
    Robo: *Beat* Yes.
    Reed: Just checking. What can I do for you?
    Robo: Please direct me to the Rehab staging area.
    Reed: *smiles as he realizes what's about to happen* It's just down the hall. You can't miss it.
    Robo: Thank you. *steps towards the door and then pauses* You may want to call the fire department.
  • Johnson's small scale Villainous Breakdown when all the cops quit is hilarious.
    (as cops start filing out) "You can't do this. [more cops walk out] You are employees of OCP, remember that. [most of the cops leave] You are jeopardizing your retirement benefits!"
    • If you've watched the previous film, you'll realise this is all bluster because OCP has already cancelled the cops' pensions.
  • The series' penchant for biting social commentary continues, with the blatantly manipulative Delta City commercial, and the hiliariously propagandist Johnny Rehab commercial. Doubly funny after the audience has seen what monsters the Rehabs truly are.
    • Where the cartoon fits within the film is also amusing, since it depicts Johnny Rehab beating up a bunch of Splatterpunks immediately after the scene where McDaggett has recruited them.
  • Robocop enters a hotel looking for McDaggett and asks the manager where his room is, then thanks the manager and tells him he hopes the hotel is insured, as Robo plans to shoot the place up.
    • Moments later, a Rehap agent pulls out his pistol on Robocop, who promptly shoots it out of his hand and keeps it suspended in midair for several seconds with sustained gunfire, leaving the agent with a simple warning, "Don't."
  • ED-209: "I am now authorized to... be loyal as a puppy."
