[to The Terminator] Now don't take this the wrong way, but you're a terminator, right?

John Connor: Is it dead?
The Terminator: Terminated.

John Connor: We're not gonna make it, are we? People, I mean.
The Terminator: It's in your nature to destroy yourselves.
John Connor: Yeah. Major drag, huh?

[to the Terminator] This severe routine is getting old. You're acting like such a geek.

Devil hands have been busy...

[to the Terminator] You and me, we've been at war since before either of us existed. You tried killing my mother. You killed my father. You will not kill me!

Win or lose, this war ends tonight!

I don't know if we can win this war.

I knew it. I knew it was coming. But this is not the future my mother warned me about. And in this future, I don't know if we can win this war. This is John Connor.
