The Terminator (1984)
Dr. Peter Silberman: Why didn't you bring any weapons, something more advanced? Don't you have, uh... ray guns? Show me a piece of future technology.
Detective Hal Vukovich: [watching from a monitor,chuckling] Ray guns?
Kyle Reese: You go naked. Something about the field generated by a living organism. Nothing dead will go.
Dr. Peter Silberman: Why?
Kyle Reese: I didn't build the fucking thing!
Dr. Peter Silberman: Okay, okay. But this cyborg, if it's metal...
Kyle Reese: Surrounded by living tissue!
Dr. Peter Silberman: Oh, right, right.
Dr. Peter Silberman: [shuts off the VCR screen on which the police and Sarah have been watching the interview] This is great stuff. I could make a career out of this guy! You see how clever his part is? How it doesn't require a shred of proof? Most paranoid delusions are intricate, but this is brilliant!
Dr. Peter Silberman: Why were the other two women killed?
Kyle Reese: Most of the records were lost in the war. Skynet knew almost nothing about Connor's mother. Her full name, where she lived. They just knew the city. The Terminator was just being systematic.
Dr. Peter Silberman: Uh-huh. Well, let's go back to what I was...
Kyle Reese: [interrupts] Look! You have heard enough! I have answered your questions! Now, I have to see Sarah Connor!
Dr. Peter Silberman: I'm afraid that's not up to me.
Kyle Reese: Then why am I talking to you? Who is in authority here?
Dr. Peter Silberman: Please, I...
Kyle Reese: [interrupts again] Shut up!
[He glares into the camera]
Kyle Reese: You still don't get it, do you? He'll find her! That's what he does! That's ALL he does! You can't stop him! He'll wade through you, reach down her throat and pull her fuckin' heart out!

Lieutenant Ed Traxler: [inside an office inside the police station] I can hear it now. He's going be called the goddamned phone book killer.
Detective Hal Vukovich: I hate these press cases, especially the weird press cases. Where you going?
Lieutenant Ed Traxler: To make a statement. Maybe make these jackals work for us. If I can get on the tube by 11:00, maybe she'll call us. Well, how do I look?
Detective Hal Vukovich: Like shit, boss.
Lieutenant Ed Traxler: Yo momma.

Detective Hal Vukovich: [referring to Reese in a room inside the police station] Come on, Ed. That was loon talk. The guy's a wacko, right?
Lieutenant Ed Traxler: [quietly] He'd better be.

Detective Hal Vukovich: [in a room inside the police station] That guy Silberman cracks me up. Last week, he had this guy in here that burned his Afghan. He screwed it first and then he set it on fire...
Lieutenant Ed Traxler: [leaning forward] Hey, shut up.

Sarah Connor: [in a room inside the police station, while sitting on a couch] So Reese is crazy?
Dr. Peter Silberman: In technical terminology: he's a loon.
Lieutenant Ed Traxler: [shows a bullet-proof vest] Sarah, this is what they call body armor. Our tac guys wear these. It can stop a 12-gauge round. This other individual must have been wearing one under his coat. Feel that. Go ahead.
Sarah Connor: [handed the vest, she feels it] What about when he punched through the windshield?
Detective Hal Vukovich: He was probably on PCP. Broke every bone in his hand and wouldn't feel it for hours. There was this guy once, you see this scar?
[Traxler interrupts him by handing him back the vest]
Detective Hal Vukovich: Thank you.

Detective Hal Vukovich: [Traxler comes into the office, spits his gum on the floor, and lights a cigarette while picking up a cup of coffee] That coffee's two hours cold.
Lieutenant Ed Traxler: [drinking the coffee] Mm-hmm.
Detective Hal Vukovich: I put a cigarette in it.
Lieutenant Ed Traxler: [puts down the coffee] Did you reach the next girl yet?
Detective Hal Vukovich: No, I keep getting an answering machine.
Lieutenant Ed Traxler: Send a unit.
Detective Hal Vukovich: I sent a unit. There's no answer to the door, and the apartment appears empty.
Lieutenant Ed Traxler: Call her.
Detective Hal Vukovich: I just called her!
Lieutenant Ed Traxler: Call her again!
[forgetting about the cigarette in his left hand]
Lieutenant Ed Traxler: Give me a cigarette.
