[John sees Cameron putting on some eyeliner]

John Connor: You're getting pretty good at that.

Cameron Phillips: Thank you.

John Connor: Still, it's not exactly brain surgery or anything. It'd be pretty funny if you were some sort of advanced cybernetic intelligence, yet stumped by a stick of eyeliner.

Cameron Phillips: No, not brain surgery. It would have to be a lot sharper for brain surgery.

Sarah Connor: [referring to some building plans] Ok, six ways in, six ways out. The street opens to the front here. Security's minimal. Two armed guards in the morning, four in the afternoon. And if anything goes wrong, there's a parking lot here.

John Connor: Mom, it's high school, okay? Not Supermax. We can handle it.

John Connor: Don't seem like a freak. You know what I mean, right?

Cameron Phillips: Freak. Weirdo. Kook. Oddball. Crackpot. Strange duck. Weird potato. Nut. I've been reading the dictionary. I don't sleep.

John Connor: Yeah, see, that's what I'm talking about. You do that, you sound like a freak.

Terissa Dyson: Well, if he does, just make sure it matters. Make sure it's not in vain.

Sarah Connor: No one dies in vain.

Andy Goode: That's the phone. Seriously, if I was going to be alone on a desert island with only a phone for a companion, that would absolutely be the phone.

Sarah Connor: Is that something you would do?

Sarah Connor: What happens if I press these numbers, here?

Andy Goode: 'Scuse me?

Sarah Connor: These numbers, one through nine. If I press seven of them will someone talk to me through the ear part up here?

Andy Goode: Uh... yeah.

Sarah Connor: Okay. I'll take three.

Andy Goode: You wanna have dinner with me tonight?

Sarah Connor: No.

Andy Goode: Well, you answered too quickly. Hear me out, just give me one minute. Thirty seconds?

Sarah Connor: Talk fast.

Andy Goode: Okay, well, first let me clear up the whole desert island and the cell phone thing. Seems kinda strange if you picture it.

Sarah Connor: I wasn't.

Andy Goode: Right, of course. Why would you? It's an asinine sales pitch, really. There's nowhere to plug in the phone, and it would be worth less then a rock when the battery died; couldn't even use it to open a coconut.

Sarah Connor: This is you selling yourself?

Andy Goode: Selling myself? Oh, I don't know, there's something immoral about the whole selling process.

Sarah Connor: And yet, that's your job.

Andy Goode: Part time. And I'm not very good at it. So I'm actually less immoral than the average... anyway, um... where was I?

Sarah Connor: You're right.

Andy Goode: About what?

Sarah Connor: I answered too quick.

Sarah Connor: Hey. How was school?

Cameron Phillips: I have a metal plate in my head.

John Connor: She's gonna need a note.

Sarah Connor: I meant you, not her.

John Connor: Yeah, fine.

Sarah Connor: You're not going to give me anything?

John Connor: Oh well, we went, we learned. I didn't get killed and she didn't kill anybody. It's a pretty good first day, I think.

Sarah Connor: She ID'd one of the safehouse photos; intern at Cyberdyne.

John Connor: Really? What does he do now, work in a lab or build rocket guidance systems or something?

Sarah Connor: Cell phone salesman.

John Connor: Shut up.

Sarah Connor: Cell phone salesman, and not a very good one.

John Connor: So, about the cell phone guy...

Sarah Connor: I am having dinner with him tonight.

John Connor: Dinner? You mean like a date?

Sarah Connor: Not a date.

Cameron Phillips: Are you going to kill him?

Sarah Connor: Kill him? I don't know the first thing about him.

Sarah Connor: So what's your deal, Andy? I can't imagine you majored in cell phone sales in college.

Andy Goode: No, no. More like Funyuns and twelve packs of Jolt from the vintage soda store while my roommates and I hacked Zelda 3 so the princess would say funny lines ripped from reruns.

Sarah Connor: [with an amused smile] What's that language you speak, boy?

Andy Goode: Computer science, CalTech; advanced dork.

[John is grilling Sarah about Andy's chess playing computer, The Turk]

John Connor: Again, what did it look like?

Sarah Connor: What did it look like? Who cares what it looked like? It was just a rack of computer equipment.

John Connor: Okay, but was there obvious network access? Do you know what kind of bandwidth?

Sarah Connor: Okay, you're joking.

John Connor: What about power supply? Was there a cooling element, like a fan or something?

Sarah Connor: John...

John Connor: Mom, I'm just trying to get a sense of the horsepower. I wanna know if this thing was a dinky little homemade soapbox or if it was a full-fledged A.I. platform, capable of learning and growing and taking on other applications.

Sarah Connor: It plays chess.

John Connor: So did Einstein.

John Connor: Have you ever heard of the Singularity? It's a point in time where machines become so smart that they're capable of making even smarter versions of themselves without our help. That's pretty much the time we can kiss our asses goodbye... unless we stop it.

Doctor: [to Sarah] Don't drive yourself crazy chasing the future. We can't predict, you know. We can only try and prevent.

Zoey: Does this make me look fat?

Cameron Phillips: Yes.

Zoey: What the hell? What's your problem?

Cameron Phillips: You asked...

Franny: Bitch whore much?

Cameron Phillips: I don't understand.

Franny: I said: bitch... whore... much? What are you looking at?

Cameron Phillips: I am looking at YOU.

Cameron Phillips: I'm a bitch whore.

John Connor: What?

Cameron Phillips: I have a new friend.

John Connor: Did she tell you you were a bitch whore?

Cameron Phillips: No. She cried.

John Connor: [completely confused] What?

Andy Goode: Would you believe me if I told you Turk has moods? Obviously, not in the sense that you and I understand mood, but sometimes I'll feed it a particular chess problem and it'll solve it one way. The next day, I'll feed it the same problem and it solves it differently. Once in a while, it can't even solve it at all. You know why it does that?

Sarah Connor: No.

Andy Goode: Neither do I. Someday, I'm gonna figure it out. Someday, Turk'll tell me.

Sarah Connor: You talk about it like it's human.

Andy Goode: Well, you never know.

Sarah Connor: What were you gonna do, be a hero? Get your name in the papers, your face?

John Connor: Isn't that what I'm supposed to be? A hero? Isn't that who I am? If it's just gonna sit inside me, if it's just gonna sit in my gut, then what are we doing? What's the point? Why don't we just give it to them if we're gonna act like them.

Sarah Connor: [narrating] On July sixteenth, nineteen forty-five, in the mountains outside of Los Alamos, New Mexico, the world's first atomic bomb exploded. The white light pierced the sky with such intensity that a blind girl claimed to see the flash from a hundred miles away. After witnessing the explosion, J. Robert Oppenheimer quoted a fragment of the Bhagavad Gita, declaring, "Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds." His colleague, Ken Bainbridge, put it another way when he leaned close to Oppenheimer and whispered, "Now we're all sons of bitches."

Andy Goode: Well, eight years of my life. Not just the software. I customized the hardware, too. One month I worked so much on a, uh, motherboard that I lost my sight for three days. No, that really happened. Those circuits are so small a lot of the gear is actually pulled from gaming platforms. Did you know that the uh military uses them? Yeah, I've got the guts of three Xboxes and four PlayStations daisy-chained. Plus some seriously modded-out code that I *swear* came to me in a dream.

Sarah Connor: And all this to beat another computer at chess?

Andy Goode: None of this to beat another computer at chess.

Sarah Connor: Then what? What are you doing?

Andy Goode: Would you believe me if I told you Turk has moods? Obviously not in the sense that you and I understand mood, but, sometimes I will feed it a particular chess problem, and it'll solve it one way. The next day I feed it the same problem and it solves it differently. Once in a while it can't even solve it at all. Do you know why it does that?

Sarah Connor: No.

Andy Goode: Yeah, neither do I. Someday, I'm gonna figure it out. Someday Turk'll tell me.

Sarah Connor: You talk about it like it's human.

Andy Goode: Well, you never know.

[Sarah is strangely quiet]

Andy Goode: What? Too far? What is it?
