Number 5 of a group of experimental robots in a lab is electrocuted, suddenly becomes intelligent, and escapes.
Three interchangeable radio-controlled heads were built for Number Five so facial expressions could be properly articulated according to the scene.
Enemy neutralized. Ladies and gentlemen, objective completed.
If Newton Crosby had indeed quit NOVA, he would not have still been driving a company van at the end of the movie. As a terminated employee, he would have had to report to the security department, which would have confiscated all the company property. However, he is never shown to quit formally. He and Stephanie are only shown to take the van and drive away. There is no indication that they stopped anywhere on the way. Yes, it could be argued that they technically stole the van and might have been in trouble for it later, but that's a completely different story.
The credits are played out over a montage of scenes from the movie, including a pair of scenes that failed to make the final cut. One involves an encounter between Number 5 and a toy robot, the other involves a scene in a scrap yard where a scrapped car that Number 5 is currently sitting in is crushed.
