Sarah Connor Quotes in Terminator Genisys (2015)


Sarah Connor Quotes:

  • Sarah Connor: I've been trying to teach him to blend in.

    Guardian: Hello Kyle Reese. It is nice to meet you.

    [the T-800 "smiles"]

    Kyle Reese: Are you kidding me?

    Sarah Connor: I know it needs work.

  • [Detective O'Brien is interrogating Sarah and wants to help]

    Sarah Connor: We're here to stop the end of the world.

    Detective O'Brien: I can work with that.

  • Sarah Connor: [Urgently] Come on!

    [the Terminator gets on the bus and notices Sarah is not wearing her seat belt]

    Guardian: Sarah Connor, seat belt.

  • Sarah Connor: What did you do to my son?

    John Connor: Survival. It's what you taught me.

  • Guardian: I'll be back.

    Sarah Connor: What?

    [the Guardian jumps from a helicopter]

  • [the Terminator breaks down door, Sarah and Reese point their guns at his direction, Sarah, in relief, realizes it's Guardian]

    Sarah Connor: Pops!

    Guardian: It's nice to see you.

  • Kyle Reese: You want us to time travel into the future in that?

    Sarah Connor: Yeah, we can't be wearing anything.

    Kyle Reese: Yeah, I know how time travel works.

  • Sarah Connor: You got a job in construction?

    Guardian: Until I was laid off.

  • Sarah Connor: Come with me if you want to live! NOW, SOLDIER!

  • Sarah Connor: Bite me.

  • Guardian: [referring to unconscious Kyle] How is he?

    Sarah Connor: Still breathing

    Guardian: Good... Then you should be able to mate with Kyle Reese in this timeline

    Sarah Connor: OK... We're not having this conversation again

  • Guardian: Did you mate?

    Sarah Connor: Oh, can you just not say the word "mate" to me again, like, ever?

  • Kyle Reese: You should have told me. That we have a son.

    Sarah Connor: *That* John Connor is not my son.

    Kyle Reese: Yeah, but you knew. I mean, you don't think you should, I don't know, maybe say something?

    Sarah Connor: You die, all right?

    Kyle Reese: What?

    Sarah Connor: You die. That's what happens. We fall in love, you father John, and then, in less than 48 hours, you die protecting me. You wanna tell me how *that* conversation's supposed to start?

    Kyle Reese: You lied to me. You manipulated me.

    Sarah Connor: I've lied? From the moment John found you, he manipulated you because he needed to ensure his own existence. John lied to you for years. I lied to you for two days. You know, it wasn't all about him. All right? If John went down, the Resistance went down with him. He could have told you!

    Kyle Reese: So what are you saying?

    Sarah Connor: That I know how it feels to have no choices. Only one road you can go down because otherwise all of it, everything, is gone. I've just known it longer than you have. Well, John didn't manipulate me to fall in love with you. I did that on my own. If you love me, you die, and I don't. And I don't know which one is worse.

  • [T-1000 Cop rams into their vehicle and starts shooting]

    Kyle Reese: Get down!

    Guardian: We've been re-acquired.

    Sarah Connor: Uh, yeah, no shit!

  • Kyle Reese: A straight line... you just go and you don't look back

    Sarah Connor: Where did you hear that?

    Kyle Reese: In a past I shouldn't remember... but I do

  • Sarah Connor: [looking at a unconscious Kyle] So you're the one I've been waiting for all my life

  • [last lines]

    Guardian: [attempts a friendly smile]

    Kyle Reese: You know that's really disturbing, right?

    Sarah Connor: You'll get used to it.

    Kyle Reese: [narrating] And it was over. Skynet was gone. And now one road has become many. Though questions remain, we'll search for the answers together. But one thing we know for sure. The future is not set.

  • Kyle Reese: How'd you know which one was him?

    Sarah Connor: Well, I didn't know exactly.

    Kyle Reese: You could have shot me!

    Sarah Connor: Well, I was pretty sure it wasn't you.

    Kyle Reese: Pretty sure?

  • Guardian: Hello, Sarah Conner.

    Sarah Connor: Pops!... Oh... I thought you were dead.

    Guardian: No, just upgraded.

  • Guardian: Kyle Reese is a good man.

    Sarah Connor: He is.

  • Sarah Connor: The timeline John sent you to no longer exists. Everything's changed... and we can stop Judgement Day.

  • Sarah Connor: [later, repeating Kyle] A straight line... you just go and you don't look back

  • Sarah Connor: [to Guardian] Look... and it's not just mating... I'm supposed to fall in love with him

  • John Connor: That hurt. Is that pain real, or was that a... trick of memory from when I was... less? Well, this explains a lot. Yeah. Who sent you back, I wonder?

    Kyle Reese: John, no.

    Sarah Connor: It's not John.

  • Kyle Reese: This is all wrong! John sent me here to save you!

    Sarah Connor: From the Terminator that was sent back to kill me, I know. But we already took care of him.

    Kyle Reese: We?

    [the T-800 appears... and so does another]

    Kyle Reese: [the Terminator cocks a shotgun]

    Guardian: [the Terminator cocks a shotgun] I have been waiting for you.

  • Kyle Reese: This is the world now: Plugged in, logged on all the time. They can't live without it.

    Sarah Connor: Genisys is a Trojan horse.

  • Sarah Connor: Genisys is a Trojan horse, Skynet's way into everything.

    Kyle Reese: These people are inviting their own extinction in through the front door, and they don't even know it.

  • Sarah Connor: [turning to Kyle] I can choose.

    [they kiss]

  • Sarah Connor: Pops! Are you... You?

    Guardian: As a T-800, I lack the mimetic skills to appear as anyone else.

    Kyle Reese: It's him. Let's go!

  • [From trailer]

    [after seeing the Terminator, unaware that he's the good Terminator, Kyle takes out gun with the intent on killing the Terminator]

    Sarah Connor: Those bullets will kill.

    Kyle Reese: He's here to kill you. Stay in the truck.

    [Reese discovers the Terminator gone. Terminator appears and uses the big to knock out Reese]

    Kyle Reese: [Sarah approaches to find Reese knocked out]

    Sarah Connor: Oh, great. That's just great.

    Terminator: I did not kill him.

  • Sarah Connor: [to the Terminator as she's about to push a button that will crush the terminator] You're terminated, fucker.

  • [after Sarah tries to escape and bites Reese's hand, in a stolen car]

    Kyle Reese: Cyborgs don't feel pain. I do. Don't do that again.

    Sarah Connor: [weakly] Just let me go!

    Kyle Reese: Listen, and understand! That Terminator is out there! It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop... ever, until you are dead!

  • [last lines while sitting in her jeep at a gas station]

    Sarah Connor: What did he just say?

    Gas Station Attendant: He said there's a storm coming in.

    Sarah Connor: [sighs] I know.

  • Sarah Connor: [in a stolen car] Reese. Why me? Why does it want me?

    Kyle Reese: There was a nuclear war. A few years from now, all this, this whole place, everything, it's gone. Just gone. There were survivors. Here, there. Nobody even knew who started it. It was the machines, Sarah.

    Sarah Connor: I don't understand.

    Kyle Reese: Defense network computers. New... powerful... hooked into everything, trusted to run it all. They say it got smart, a new order of intelligence. Then it saw all people as a threat, not just the ones on the other side. Decided our fate in a microsecond: extermination.

    Sarah Connor: Did you see this war?

    Kyle Reese: No. I grew up after. In the ruins... starving... hiding from H-K's.

    Sarah Connor: H-K's?

    Kyle Reese: Hunter-Killers. Patrol machines built in automated factories. Most of us were rounded up, put in camps for orderly disposal.

    [pulls up his right sleeve, exposing a mark]

    Kyle Reese: This is burned in by laser scan. Some of us were kept alive... to work... loading bodies. The disposal units ran night and day. We were that close to going out forever. But there was one man who taught us to fight, to storm the wire of the camps, to smash those metal motherfuckers into junk. He turned it around. He brought us back from the brink. His name is Connor. John Connor. Your son, Sarah... your unborn son.

  • Sarah Connor: [recording a tape for her future son while sitting in her jeep at a gas station] The hardest thing is deciding what I should tell you and what not to. But I guess I've got a while yet before you're old enough to even understand the tapes. They're more for me at this point just so I can get it straight. Should I tell you about your father? Boy, that's a tough one. Will it affect your decision to send him here, knowing that he is you father? If you don't send Kyle, you can never be. God, a person can go crazy thinking about all this... I suppose I will tell you... I owe him that. Maybe it'll be enough if you know that, in the few hours we had together, we loved a lifetime's worth.

  • Sarah Connor: [in a motel room] Are you sure you have the right person?

    Kyle Reese: I'm sure.

    Sarah Connor: [angrily] Oh, come on. Do I look like the mother of the future? I mean am I tough, organized? I can't even balance my checkbook! Look Reese, I didn't ask for this honor and I don't WANT IT, ANY OF IT!

    Kyle Reese: Your son gave me a message to give to you. He made me memorize it.

    [reciting message]

    Kyle Reese: Thank you, Sarah, for your courage through the dark years. I can't help you with what you must soon face, except to say that the future is not set. You must be stronger than you imagine you can be. You must survive, or I will never exist.

  • Sarah Connor: [answers the phone in Sarah and Ginger's apartment] Hello?

    Matt Buchanan: [sitting on a chair, seductively] First I'm gonna rip the buttons off your blouse one by one, then run my tongue down your neck to your bare, gleaming breasts. And then slowly... slowly pull your jeans off inch by inch.

    Sarah Connor: [starts laughing and covers the receiver with her hand] Ginger, it's Matt.

    Matt Buchanan: And lick your belly in circles further and further down, and then pull your panties off with my teeth.

    Sarah Connor: [in a serious tone] Who *is* this?

    Matt Buchanan: God. Sarah? Jesus. I'm Sorry. I thought you were... Can I talk to Ginger please?

    Sarah Connor: Sure, Bunky.

    Ginger Ventura: [takes the phone from Sarah] Hello?

    Matt Buchanan: First I'm gonna rip the buttons off your blouse one by one...

  • Sarah Connor: [in a room inside the police station, while sitting on a couch] So Reese is crazy?

    Dr. Peter Silberman: In technical terminology: he's a loon.

    Lieutenant Ed Traxler: [shows a bullet-proof vest] Sarah, this is what they call body armor. Our tac guys wear these. It can stop a 12-gauge round. This other individual must have been wearing one under his coat. Feel that. Go ahead.

    Sarah Connor: [handed the vest, she feels it] What about when he punched through the windshield?

    Detective Hal Vukovich: He was probably on PCP. Broke every bone in his hand and wouldn't feel it for hours. There was this guy once, you see this scar?

    [Traxler interrupts him by handing him back the vest]

    Detective Hal Vukovich: Thank you.

  • Kyle Reese: [in a stolen car] 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.

    Sarah Connor: [frustrated] Look, I am not stupid, you know. They cannot make things like that yet.

    Kyle Reese: Not yet, not for about 40 years.

    Sarah Connor: [disbelieving] 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.

  • Sarah Connor: [in a stolen car] What's it like when you go through time?

    Kyle Reese: White light. Pain. It's like being born, maybe.

  • Sarah Connor: [checks the grocery bags Kyle has brought back to the hotel room] What've we got? Moth balls, corn syrup, ammonia. What's for dinner?

    Kyle Reese: Plastique.

    Sarah Connor: That sounds good. What is it?

    Kyle Reese: Nitroglycerine-base; it's a bit more stable. I learned to make it when I was a kid.

  • Sarah Connor: [in a stolen car, while being chased by the police and the terminator] This is a mistake. I haven't done anything.

    Kyle Reese: No, but you will. It's very important that you live.

    Sarah Connor: This isn't true. How could that man just get up after you just...

    Kyle Reese: He's not a man - a machine. Terminator, Cyberdyne Systems Model 101.

    Sarah Connor: A machine? Like a robot?

    Kyle Reese: Not a robot. A cyborg. Cybernetic organism.

    Sarah Connor: No, he was bleeding.

    Kyle Reese: Just a second. Keep your head down!

  • Sarah Connor: [sitting on a couch in a room inside the police station] You're a doctor?

    Dr. Peter Silberman: [yawning] Criminal psychologist.

    Sarah Connor: Is Reese crazy?

    Dr. Peter Silberman: Well, that's what we're gonna find out.

    [clicks his pen]

  • Kyle Reese: [in a stolen car, while being chased by the police and the terminator] All right, listen. The Terminator's an infiltration unit: part man, part machine. Underneath, it's a hyperalloy combat chassis, microprocessor-controlled. Fully armored; very tough. But outside, it's living human tissue: flesh, skin, hair, blood - grown for the cyborgs.

    Sarah Connor: Look, Reese, I don't know what you want from...

    Kyle Reese: Pay attention! I gotta ditch this car.

  • Sarah Connor: [in a motel room] Kyle, the women in your time, what are they like?

    Kyle Reese: Good fighters.

    Sarah Connor: That's not what I meant. Was there someone special?

    Kyle Reese: Someone?

    Sarah Connor: A girl, you know.

    Kyle Reese: No. Never.

    Sarah Connor: Never? I'm sorry. I'm so sorry. So much pain.

    Kyle Reese: Pain can be controlled - you just disconnect it.

  • Sarah Connor: [jokingly to Big Bob, referring to her moped] Guard it for me, big buns.

  • Sarah Connor: [hiding inside a cave not from the road] Tell me about my son.

    Kyle Reese: He's about my height. He has your eyes.

    Sarah Connor: What's he like?

    Kyle Reese: You trust him. He's got a strength. I'd die for John Connor.

    Sarah Connor: Well... at least now I know what to name him. I don't suppose you know who the father is, so I won't tell him to get lost when I meet him?

    Kyle Reese: John never said much about him. I know he dies before the war.

    Sarah Connor: Wait. I don't want to know.

  • Sarah Connor: [awakens from a dream while hiding inside a cave not from the road] I was dreaming about dogs.

    Kyle Reese: We used them to spot Terminators.

    Sarah Connor: Your world... it's pretty terrifying.

  • Ginger Ventura: [after hearing the message left on their answering machine canceling their date] That bum. So what if he has a Porsche? He can't treat you like this. It's Friday night, for Christ's sake.

    Sarah Connor: [slumping] I'll live.

    Ginger Ventura: I'll break his kneecaps.

  • Kyle Reese: Sleep. It'll be light soon.

    Sarah Connor: Okay. Talk some more.

    Kyle Reese: About what?

    Sarah Connor: About where you're from.

    Kyle Reese: All right. You stay down by day, but at night, you can move around. The H-K's use infrared so you still have to watch out. But they're not too bright. John taught us ways to dust them. That's when the infiltrators started to appear. The Terminators were the newest and the worst...

  • John Connor: We've got company!... Police!

    Sarah Connor: How many?

    John Connor: Uh... all of 'em, I think.

  • Sarah Connor: [voiceover] Watching John with the machine, it was suddenly so clear. The terminator, would never stop. It would never leave him, and it would never hurt him, never shout at him, or get drunk and hit him, or say it was too busy to spend time with him. It would always be there. And it would die, to protect him. Of all the would-be fathers who came and went over the years, this thing, this machine, was the only one who measured up. In an insane world, it was the sanest choice.

  • Dr. Silberman: You broke my arm!

    Sarah Connor: There are 215 bones in the human body. That's one.

  • [last lines]

    Sarah Connor: [narrating] The unknown future rolls toward us. I face it, for the first time, with a sense of hope. Because if a machine, a Terminator, can learn the value of human life, maybe we can too.

  • 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?

  • John Connor: You know what you're doing?

    The Terminator: I have detailed files on human anatomy.

    Sarah Connor: I'll bet. Makes you a more efficient killer, right?

    The Terminator: Correct.

  • John Connor: Can you learn stuff you haven't been programmed with so you could be... you know, more human? And not such a dork all the time?

    The Terminator: My CPU is a neural-net processor; a learning computer. But Skynet presets the switch to read-only when we're sent out alone.

    Sarah Connor: Doesn't want you doing too much thinking, huh?

    The Terminator: No.

  • [first lines]

    Sarah Connor: [narrating] Three billion human lives ended on August 29th, 1997. The survivors of the nuclear fire called the war Judgment Day. They lived only to face a new nightmare: the war against the machines. The computer which controlled the machines, Skynet, sent two Terminators back through time. Their mission: to destroy the leader of the human resistance, John Connor, my son. The first Terminator was programmed to strike at me in the year 1984, before John was born. It failed. The second was set to strike at John himself when he was still a child. As before, the resistance was able to send a lone warrior, a protector for John. It was just a question of which one of them would reach him first.

  • The Terminator: In three years, Cyberdyne will become the largest supplier of military computer systems. All stealth bombers are upgraded with Cyberdyne computers, becoming fully unmanned. Afterwards, they fly with a perfect operational record. The Skynet Funding Bill is passed. The system goes online August 4th, 1997. Human decisions are removed from strategic defense. Skynet begins to learn at a geometric rate. It becomes self-aware at 2:14 a.m. Eastern time, August 29th. In a panic, they try to pull the plug.

    Sarah Connor: Skynet fights back.

    The Terminator: Yes. It launches its missiles against the targets in Russia.

    John Connor: Why attack Russia? Aren't they our friends now?

    The Terminator: Because Skynet knows that the Russian counterattack will eliminate its enemies over here.

  • Sarah Connor: You came here to stop me?

    John Connor: Yeah, I did.

  • Sarah Connor: You're the one livin' in a fuckin' dream, Silberman! 'Cause I know when it happens! It happens!

  • Sarah Connor: [narrating] Dyson listened while the Terminator laid it all down: Skynet, Judgment Day, the history of things to come. It's not everyday you find out that you're responsible for three billion deaths. He took it pretty well.

    Miles Dyson: [after the Terminator completes his story] I feel like I'm gonna throw up. You're judging me on things that I haven't even done yet. How are we supposed to know.

    Sarah Connor: Yeah, right. How are you supposed to know? Fucking men like you built the hydrogen bomb. Men like you thought it up. You thikn you're so creative. You don't know what it's like to really create something; to create a life; to feel it growing inside you. All you know how to create is death and destruction...

    John Connor: Mom! We need to be a little more constructive here, okay? We still have to stop this from happening, don't we?

  • 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!

  • [from Extended Special Edition ending]

    Sarah Connor: [speaks into her recorder] August 29, 1997, came and went. Nothing much happened. Michael Jackson turned 40. There was no Judgment Day. People went to work as they always do. Laughed, complained, watched TV, made love. I wanted to run to through the street yelling to grab them all and say, "Every day from this day on is a gift. Use it well." Instead, I got drunk. That was 30 years ago. But the dark future which never came still exists for me. And it always will, like the traces of a dream. John fights the way differently than it was foretold. Here, on the battlefield of the Senate his weapons are common sense and hope.

    Sarah's Granddaughter: [runs up to Sarah] Tie me, Grandma. Tie me!

    Sarah Connor: How's that?

    Sarah's Granddaughter: Thank you, Grandma.

    Sarah Connor: The luxury of hope was given to me by the Terminator. Because if a machine can learn the value of human life, maybe we can too.

  • 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.

  • Miles Dyson: Just let the boy go.

    Sarah Connor: Shut up! Shut up, shut up, SHUT UP! It's all your fault! Motherfucker, it's all your fault!

    Miles Dyson: What?

  • Sarah Connor: [to the Terminator] So what's your story?

  • Miles Dyson: Hi. Um, Carl. These are friends from out of town, I'm just gonna take them upstairs and show them around.

    Gibbons: Now, c'mon Mr. Dyson, you know the rules if you want to bring visitors into the lab. I need written authorization...

    The Terminator: [the Terminator and Sarah draw their guns] I insist.

    Sarah Connor: [Gibbons is trying to push the alarm button] Don't even think about it.

  • Miles Dyson: [after swiping his card on a control panel, nothing happens] My card should access this thing.

    [swipes his card several times more, nothing happens, then he tries to open it up with his hand]

    Sarah Connor: What happened?

    Miles Dyson: Dammit.

    [checks the map screen and finds out what is going on]

    Miles Dyson: The silent alarm is tripped. All of the codes are neutralized in the entire building, nothing will open anywhere now. We have to abort.

    Sarah Connor: [gets in front of Dyson] No. We'll go all the way.

  • Sarah Connor: [armed with a hypodermic syringe inudated with drain cleaner] I'll pump him full of this shit; I swear!

  • Sarah Connor: [the T-1000 pursues John, Sarah, and the Terminator in a police helicopter] Chopper's coming in!

    The Terminator: It's him.
