Quotes

    • [in a stolen car]
    • Kyle Reese: The 600 series had rubber skin. We spotted them easy, but these are new. They look human... sweat, bad breath, everything. Very hard to spot. I had to wait till he moved on you before I could zero him.
    • [frustrated]
    • Sarah Connor: Look, I am not stupid, you know. They cannot make things like that yet.
    • Kyle Reese: Not yet, not for about 40 years.
    • [disbelieving]
    • Sarah Connor: Are you saying it's from the future?
    • Kyle Reese: One possible future. From your point of view. I don't know tech stuff.
    • Sarah Connor: Then you're from the future, too. Is that right?
    • Kyle Reese: Right.
    • Sarah Connor: Right.
