"No fate?" No fate but what we make. My father told her this. I made him memorize it in the future as a message to her… Never mind. The whole thing goes, "The future's not set. There's no fate but what we make for ourselves."


Dr. Miles Bennett Dyson: [About the remote trigger for the barrel explosives] I don't know how much longer I can hold this.

Dr. Miles Bennett Dyson: I feel like I'm gonna throw up.

Dr. Miles Bennett Dyson: There's no way I'm going to finish the new processor now. Forget it. I'm out of it. I'll quit Cyberdyne tomorrow…We'll have to destroy all the stuff at the lab, the files, the disk drives and everything I have here. Everything.

Police Detective: Miss Connor. We know you know who this guy is. Look. I just sat here and told you that your son is missing. That the foster parents have been murdered. We know this guy's involved. Doesn't that mean anything to you? Don't you care?

John: [Watching two children fight] We're not gonna make it, are we? People, I mean.
Terminator: It's in your nature to destroy yourselves.
John: Yeah. Major drag, huh?
Mother of Fighting Children: Break it up before I wring both your necks.

John: Are you ever afraid?
Terminator: No
John: Not even of dying?
Terminator: No
John: You don't feel any emotion about it, one way or another?
Terminator: No. I have to stay functional until the mission is complete. Then it doesn't matter.
John: I have to stay functional too. [Mocking] I'm too important.

John: I wish I coulda met my real dad
Terminator: You will
John: Yeah, I guess. When I'm like, 45. They sent him back through time to 1984. Man. He hadn't even been born yet. It messes with your head… Mom and him were only together for, like, one night, but she still loves him, I guess. I see her crying sometimes. She denies it totally of course, like she got something stuck in her eye.
Terminator: Why do you cry?
John: You mean people?
Terminator: Yeah
John: I don't know. We just cry. You know. When it hurts.
Terminator: Pain causes it?
John: Uh-unh, no, it's different… It's when there's nothing wrong with you but you hurt anyways. You get it?
Terminator: No.

John: Is it dead?
Terminator: Terminated.

John: Jesus, you were gonna kill that guy!
Terminator: Of course. I'm a Terminator.
John: Listen to me very carefully, OK? You're not a Terminator anymore. All right? You got that? You just can't go around killing people!
Terminator: Why?
John: Whattaya mean, why? Cause you can't!
Terminator: Why?
John: Because you just can't, OK? Trust me on this. Look. I'm gonna go get my mom. And I order you to help me!

John: Now don't take this the wrong way, but you are a Terminator, right?
Terminator: Yes. Cyberdyne Systems, Model 101.
John: [Pokes at one of Terminator's bullet wounds.] Holy shit! You're really real! I mean, you're like a machine underneath, right? But sort of alive outside?
Terminator: I'm a cybernetic organism. Living tissue over a metal endoskeleton.
John: This is intense. Get a grip, John. OK, uhm, you're not here to kill me. I figured that part out for myself. So what's the deal?
Terminator: My mission is to protect you.
John: Yeah? Who sent you?
Terminator: You did. Thirty-five years from now, you re-programmed me to be your protector here, in this time.
John: Oh, this is deep...
[Cuts to them riding a motorcycle at night]

Terminator: Yes. A mimetic polyalloy.
John: What the hell does that mean?
Terminator: Liquid metal.

John: Now, you gotta promise me you're not gonna kill anyone, right?
Terminator: Right.
John: Swear.
Terminator: What?
John: Just put up your hand and say, 'I swear I won't kill anyone.'
Terminator: [Raises hand] I swear I will not kill anyone.
