- One robot's 200 year journey to become an ordinary man.
- Andrew Martin: [after learning the fate of most sperm] Andrew Martin: They die? One feels badly for them.
[Teaching Andrew to tell jokes] Sir: Why did the chicken cross the road? Andrew Martin: One does not know, sir, possibly a predator was behind the chicken, or possibly there was a female chicken on the other of the road, if it's a male chicken. Possibly a food source, or depending on the season it might be migrating. One hopes there's no traffic. Sir: To get to the other side. Andrew Martin: To get to the other side. Ah, why is that funny?
Galatea: As the great Andrew Martin once said "One is glad to be of service".
Andrew Martin: Sir, is everything all right? Sir: Umm. They've both gone now, Andrew. Well, things change, things always change. People move on. It's as it should be. But, what I realized today is that I'll never stop missing them. Andrew Martin: Sir? One is still here. Sir: And one is glad of that Andrew. Thank you.
[after young Lloyd pours sand on Andrew] Andrew Martin: One understands why some animals eat their young.
- On 17 June 1999, crews filming in the brand new San Francisco City Hall building set off the sprinkler system, flooding hallways, causing serious damage, and angering San Francisco mayor Willie Brown.
The futuristic headquarters of "NorthAm Robotics" are actually the headquarters of Oracle Corporation, in Redwood Shores, CA.
Andrew is a NDR-114. This may be a tribute to Stanley Kubrick, who used the number 114 in multiple films (such as A Clockwork Orange (1971) and Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964)).
Sir's actual name (revealed when he and Andrew go to NorthAm Robotics for the first time) is Richard Martin. Miss and Little Miss are named Amanda and Grace. When "Sir" and "Ma'am" are sitting on the bench in the yard, you can hear him say, "Rachel," and since the girls' names are revealed, this can be seen as "Ma'am"'s name.
The aria that Andrew is listening to when he first uses the record player is from Dvorak's opera "Rusalka." The opera is concerned with the fairy-tale story of a water nymph who wants to become mortal for love.
