Short Circuit is a 1986 comedy science fiction film about a robot, #5, who short circuits during a thunderstorm and escapes from Nova Robotics. He has been designed as a weapon, and his designer Newton Crosby (Steve Guttenberg) and the others at Nova are concerned he might be dangerous. Meanwhile, #5 is being protected by Stephanie Speck (Ally Sheedy).

  • Beautiful Stephanie!

Stephanie Speck

  • [Speaking to the head guy at Nova] Oh, it's ok, go on, get back to your nuclear warheads.
  • Come out here Mr. Scummo!

Newton Crosby

  • Originally I had non-military purposes in mind. I designed it as a marital aid.

Ben Jabituya

  • Maybe we have created another Frankfurter's monster!
  • [To Crosby] Hi Honey! What is for dinner?
  • [To Stephanie] Bye-bye goofy lady! I had fun repeatedly throwing you to the ground.
  • I am standing here beside myself!


  • Schroeder: [Speaking about #5] Maybe it's pissed off.
  • Newton: Schroeder, it's a machine. It doesn't get pissed off. It doesn't get happy, it doesn't get sad, it doesn't laugh at your jokes...
  • Ben and Newton: [In unison] It just runs programs!

  • Newton Crosby: Where are you from, anyway?
  • Ben Jabituya: Bakersfield, originally.
  • Newton Crosby: No, I mean your ancestors.
  • Ben Jabituya: Oh, them. Pittsburgh.

  • Howard Marner: What if it goes out and melts down a bus load of nuns? How would you like to write the headline on that one?
  • Benjamin Jabituya: Nun soup?

  • Marner: Great, so instead of 11 million dollars on the loose, we'll have 22.
  • Ben: Also we are needing gas money.


  • Wouldn't you like to be a pepper too?


  • Something wonderful has happened...No. 5 is alive.
