Cameron asks John why Sarah turned over the tortoise that was on its back on the road in Mexico. John says that people do that. Cameron says, "Empathy?" John says, "I guess so." Cameron says, "Some people wouldn't do that. Some might even run the tortoise over and crush it." In the next scene, Cameron throws Ellison around the room, then nearly chokes him to death while he is on the floor on his back. John says, "Let him go." She does, then turns him over onto his stomach in her attempt to imitate human empathy. See more »
