Terminator


[Voiceover] Three billion human lives ended on August 29, 1997. The survivors of the nuclear fire called the war Judgment Day. They lived only to face a new nightmare, a war against the machines. The computer which controlled the machines, Skynet, sent two terminators back through time. Their mission: to destroy the leader of the human Resistance. John Connor; my son. The first terminator was programmed to strike at me, in the year 1984, before John was born. It failed. The second was sent to strike at John himself, when he was still a child. As before, the Resistance was able to send a lone warrior. A protector for John. It was just a question of which one of them would reach him first.


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: Step on it.
Terminator: This is the vehicle's top speed.
John: I could get out and run faster than this.

This next patient is interesting. I've been following the case for years. A 29-year old female, diagnosed as acute schizo-affective disorder. The usual indicators - depression, anxiety, violent acting-out, delusions of persecution....The delusional architecture is fairly unique. She believes that a machine called a 'terminator,' which looks human of course, was sent back through time to kill her. And also that the father of her child was a soldier, sent back to protect her - he was from the future too [He chuckles] - the year, uh, 2029, if I remember correctly.


[After defeating T-1000] I need a vacation.

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

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: 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.

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.

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.

[The Terminator shoots the guard in both knees]
Terminator: He'll live.

T-1000: Are you the legal guardian of John Connor?
Todd Voight: That's right, Officer. What's he done now?
T-1000: Could I speak with him please?
Janielle Voight: You could if he were here. He just took off on his bike. So, he could be anywhere.
T-1000: Do you have a photograph of John?
Janielle Voight: Yeah, sure, hold on.
Todd Voight: Could you tell me what this is about?
T-1000: Just need to ask him a few questions.
[Janielle gives the photo to T-1000]
T-1000: He's a good looking boy. Do you mind if I keep this picture?
Janielle Voight: No, go on. There was a guy here this morning looking for him, too
Todd Voight: Yeah, a big guy on a bike. Does that got something to do with this?
T-1000: No, I wouldn't worry about him. Thanks for you cooperation.

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

John: You have to do what I say huh?
Terminator: That's one of my mission parameters.
John: Prove it! Stand on one foot. [The Terminator lifts one leg] Yes! Cool. My own Terminator! Wow.

You're already dead, Silberman. Everybody dies, you know I believe it, so don't **** with me!

I feel much better now. Clearer.
