Sarah Connor: [first lines - narrating] There are those who believe that a child in the womb shares his mother's dreams; her love for him, her hopes for his future. Is it told to him in pictures while he sleeps inside her? Is that why he reaches for her in that first moment and cries for her touch? But what if you'd known, since he was inside you, what his life held for him; that he would be hunted; that his fate was tied to the fate of millions? That every moment of your life will be spent keeping him alive? Would he understand why you were so hard? Why you held on so tight? Would he still reach for you if the only dream you've ever shared with him was a nightmare?
Sarah Connor: Half an hour; one bag, plus the guns. I'll make pancakes.
Cromartie: [after shooting up a classroom while targeting John] Class dismissed.
Cameron Phillips: [to John] Come with me if you want to live.
Sarah Connor: I didn't kill Miles! I didn't do it. I would never... Miles was a hero.
Terissa Dyson: Then why are you here?
Cameron Phillips: We're back.
Sarah Connor: What have you done?
Cameron Phillips: You want to find Skynet? You want to stop Skynet? This is the way.
Sarah Connor: You don't know who builds it!
Cameron Phillips: No. But we know where and we know when. We can go kill it before it's born. You can stop running. Stay in one place. Fight.
Sarah Connor: [narrates] It is said that the death of any one person is the death of an entire world. Certainly for parents, the death of a child is no less than a holocaust. In the case of my son, these words are literally true.
Sarah Connor: [narrates] Even though we've traveled through time, bent the rules of nature, they will keep coming for him, keep trying to kill him. But until that day, it's gonna be one hell of a dogfight.
Sarah Connor: Do it... kill me!
Sarah Connor: [on the ground in front of school, holding Johns dead body]
Terminator: [looks at Sarah with disbelief]
Sarah Connor: Nothing matters anymore, KILL ME!
Terminator: You're right. Nothing matters anymore, only the boy. The future's ours, and it begins NOW!
[school behind him explodes causing his flesh to vaporize, exposing his metal endoskeleton, he walks forward and begins to strangle Sarah with the familiar Terminator hand]
John Connor: The cops will never find us. We're safe.
Sarah Connor: Don't you think that, John! Don't you ever think that! Look at me! No one is ever safe.
Sarah Connor: [narrates] Every family has rules, and we had ours. Keep you head down. Keep your eyes up. Resist the urge to be seen as important or special. Know your exits.
James Ellison: Been together long?
Charley Dixon: Six months maybe. Bit of a whirlwind.
James Ellison: You have no idea the whirlwind.
Charley Dixon: Why would she do that?
James Ellison: Well, you know, Mr. Dixon, it's the robots. The ones from the future, the ones Skynet sent to kill her son, which makes total sense because, in the future, John's not only her son but
James Ellison: "the leader of the resistance, fighting artificially intelligent machines determined to annihilate the human race." Did he strike you that way? Leader of a scrappy band of rebels? Luke Skywalker type?
James Ellison: This is just my patter, Mr. Dixon. This is just me impressing upon you that I'm not here because you lost your fiance, love of your life, and all around good-time-girl. I'm here because my boss, the United States of America, thinks Sarah Connor is a deluded, dangerous, grade-A whack-a-mole who killed a man because she believes that in the future he'll invent a computer system that declares war on the world.
John Connor: My mom, she's kinda uptight. Actually, she's really uptight.
Sarah Connor: [to John] Next time you do what you're trained to do. You run.
Sarah Connor: [to a topless Cameron] You might want to put those back in the holster.
Cameron Phillips: [grabbing her bra] Oh.
Cameron Phillips: You should have changed your alias.
Sarah Connor: Go to hell!
Cameron Phillips: They would have found you anyway. They always do.
John Connor: I'm not who they think I am; some messiah.
Sarah Connor: You don't know that.
John Connor: I know. I can't lead an army. Maybe that's you, but it'll never be me. So you've gotta stop it. Please!
Cameron Phillips: [to John] In the future you have many friends.
Sarah Connor: We can't keep running. I'll lose my boy. He'll leave me... He'll leave me.
Cameron Phillips: When the isotope solution turns red you can fire.
Sarah Connor: Isotope. Is this nuclear?
Cameron Phillips: No, not really.
Cameron Phillips: You're safe.
Sarah and John: [in unison] No one is ever safe.
Sarah Connor: Put the guns in the bag and load them... I'll make pancakes.
Sarah Connor: A wise man once said, "Know thyself." Easier said than done. I've had nine aliases, 23 jobs, spoken four languages, and spent three years in a mental hospital for speaking the truth.
