“Somewhere, there is a crime happening.”

From: Robocop

Genre: Movies

Who said it?: Robocop

The story behind the quote: This week’s quote comes from the 1987 sci-fi/cyberpunk movie, Robocop. The film is about Officer Alex Murphy (played by Peter Weller) who is gunned down on duty. But, thanks to Omni Consumer Products, also known as OCP, Murphy is resurrected as Robocop to be the future of law enforcement.

The quote comes early in the film. After officer Alex Murphy is transformed into Robocop (both played by Peter Weller), his old partner Anne Lewis (portrayed by Nancy Allen) encounters the cyborg and tries to get him to remember who he is. Robocop does eventually brush the conversation off by first excusing himself then delivering the quote.

Geek wisdom: It is a sad fact that there are always bad things happening and they are caused by people. This is why it’s always a good idea to be aware because these bad people can do things to you and your loved ones when you least expect it.

Most of my childhood (and adult life) was spent doing a lot of geeky stuff: watching TV, playing video games and going to the movies. To some, it may have been a waste of time. Well, to me, it has made me what I am today... a geeky adult. I actually write for a couple of blogs, namely: geekwisdom.wordpress.com 3rdworldgeeks.com gamemoir.com Please check them out!
