Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991)
Dr. Silberman: I'm sure it feels very real to you.
Sarah Connor: On August 29th, 1997, it's gonna feel pretty fucking real to you too. Anybody not wearing 2 million sunblock is gonna have a real bad day. Get it?

Dr. Silberman: You broke my arm!
Sarah Connor: There's 215 bones in the human body. That's one.

Dr. Silberman: It won't work, Sarah. You're no killer, I don't believe you'd do it.
Sarah Connor: You're already dead, Silberman. Everybody dies. You know I believe it so don't fuck with me!

Dr. Silberman: Good Morning, Sarah.
Sarah Connor: Good Morning, Dr. Silberman. How's the knee?
Dr. Silberman: Fine, Sarah.
Dr. Silberman: [turns to the team of doctors with him] She... uh, stabbed me in the knee cap with my pen a few weeks ago.

Mossberg: [showing a series of photographs taken with The Terminator] These were taken by a video surveillance camera, at the Westtown police station, in 1984. He killed 17 police officers that night. Men with families, children.
Weatherby: These were taken at a mall in Receda...
[shows two new photographs of The Terminator]
Weatherby: Today.
Mossberg: Ms. 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?
[no response from Sarah as Weatherby waves a hand in front of her eyes]
Dr. Silberman: Sorry, guys. She grows more and more disconnected from reality as time goes on.


The Terminator (1984)
Dr. 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 Vukovich: [chuckling] Ray guns?
Kyle Reese: You go naked. Something about the field generated by a living organism. Nothing dead will go.
Dr. Silberman: Why?
Kyle Reese: I didn't build the fucking thing!
Dr. Silberman: Okay, okay. But this cyborg, if it's metal...
Kyle Reese: Surrounded by living tissue!
Dr. Silberman: Oh, right, right.
Dr. Silberman: [He 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. 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. 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. 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. Silberman: Please, I...
Kyle Reese: [interrupts again] Shut up!
[He looks 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!

Dr. Silberman: Well, how are you supposed to get back?
Kyle Reese: I can't. Nobody goes home. Nobody else comes through. It's just him - and me.

Sarah Connor: So Reese is crazy?
Dr. Silberman: In technical terminology: he's a loon.

Dr. Silberman: Why this elaborate scheme with the Terminator?
Kyle Reese: It had no choice. Their defense grid was smashed. We'd won. Taking out Connor then would make no difference. Skynet had to wipe out his entire existence!

Sarah Connor: You're a doctor?
Dr. Silberman: [Yawning] Criminal psychologist.
Sarah Connor: Is Reese crazy?
Dr. Silberman: Well, that's what we're gonna find out.
[Clicks his pen]


"Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles: The Demon Hand (#1.7)" (2008)
Dr. Peter Silberman: Could it be that the apocalypse in the Book and the predictions of Sarah Connor are one and the same?

Dr. Peter Silberman: Came down the hall. It was a large man. I thought it was a man, until he threw the guard through the window like a rag doll. Not an ounce of emotion, just blank like a death mask. Then the other one came.
James Ellison: There was two of 'em?
Dr. Peter Silberman: They were different. The second was almost... beautiful, like... perfect. Like a changeling; the face of mercury.
James Ellison: What about Sarah?
Dr. Peter Silberman: She was there. She was on the floor. And the boy was with her. He was screaming. And then the first one, the big one, I'll never forgot, he reached out his hand and he said, 'Come with me if you want to live.' Like God reaching out to man. Like the Sistine Chapel.
James Ellison: The hand of God?
Dr. Peter Silberman: The hand of God.

Dr. Peter Silberman: [about Sarah] I can't let you stop her.
James Ellison: She's dead.
Dr. Peter Silberman: So was Jesus once.

Dr. Peter Silberman: I'm sorry I ever doubted you.
[Sarah punches him in the face - TKO]
Sarah Connor: Apology accepted.

Dr. Peter Silberman: They're here. They're here. They're here! They're everywhere! They're here! They're here!


Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines (2003)
Dr. Peter Silberman: You're safe now, they can't hurt you. Kate, my name is Doctor Silberman. I'm a post trauma counselor for the Sheriff's Department. How are you feeling?
Kate Brewster: He's not human... he's really, not human.
Dr. Peter Silberman: I know what it's like to be in a hostage situation, I've been there myself. The fear, the adrenaline, you find yourself imagining things, impossible things, crazy things, insane things... takes years to get over it.
