Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991) Poster

Edward Furlong: John Connor



  • John Connor : No, no, no, no. You gotta listen to the way people talk. You don't say "affirmative," or some shit like that. You say "no problemo." And if someone comes on to you with an attitude you say "eat me." And if you want to shine them on it's "hasta la vista, baby."

    The Terminator : Hasta la vista, baby.

    John Connor : Yeah but later, dickwad. And if someone gets upset you say, "chill out"! Or you can do combinations.

    The Terminator : Chill out, dickwad.

    John Connor : Great! See, you're getting it!

    The Terminator : No problemo.

  • John Connor : Todd and Janelle are dicks, but I've gotta warn them. You got a quarter?

    [the Terminator smashes into the coin bin and hands John a quarter] 

    Janelle Voight : [answers the phone]  Hello?

    John Connor : Janelle, it's me!

    Janelle Voight : John?

    John Connor : Yeah. Is everything all right? Are you guys okay?

    Janelle Voight : Sure, honey, everything's okay. Are you all right?

    John Connor : Yeah, I'm fine.

    Janelle Voight : John, it's late. Honey, I was beginning to worry about you. If you hurry home, we can sit down and have dinner together. I'm making beef stew.

    John Connor : [holds his hand over the phone]  Something's wrong. She's never this nice.

    Janelle Voight : John, where are you?

    Todd Voight : [hearing Max barking outside]  What the hell is that goddamn dog barking at?

    Todd Voight : [shouting at Max]  Hey! Shut up you worthless piece of shit!

    John Connor : [to himself]  The dog's really barking...

    Todd Voight : Thought you were gonna tell the kid to get rid of that fucking mutt.

    Janelle Voight : [uses her arm to kill Todd]  John, honey, it's late. Please don't make me worry.

    John Connor : [to Terminator, hand over the phone]  Could it already be there?

    Janelle Voight : Honey, are you okay?

    The Terminator : [takes the phone from John and impersonates his voice]  I'm right here. I'm fine.

    Janelle Voight : Are you sure? Are you sure you're all right?

    The Terminator : [to John; normal voice]  What's the dog's name?

    John Connor : Max.

    The Terminator : [impersonating John's voice]  Hey Janelle, what's wrong with Wolfie? I can hear him barking. Is he all right?

    Janelle Voight : Wolfie's fine, honey. Wolfie's just fine. Where are you?

    The Terminator : [hangs up the phone]  Your foster parents are dead.

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

    Sarah Connor : How many?

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

  • The Terminator : Why do you cry?

    John Connor : You mean people?

    The Terminator : Yes.

    John Connor : I don't know. We just cry. You know, when it hurts.

    The Terminator : Pain causes it?

    John Connor : No, it's when there's nothing wrong with you, but you hurt anyway. You get it?

    The Terminator : No.

  • The Terminator : I'll take care of the police.

    John Connor : Hey, wait! You swore!

    The Terminator : [smiles]  Trust me.

  • John Connor : You just can't go around killing people.

    The Terminator : Why?

    John Connor : What do you mean why? 'Cause you can't.

    The Terminator : Why?

    John Connor : Because you just can't, okay? Trust me on this.

  • [the T-1000 has fallen into a vat of molten steel] 

    John Connor : Is it dead?

    The Terminator : Terminated.

  • John Connor : The whole thing goes: The future's not set. There's no fate but what we make for ourselves.

  • John Connor : We need to get my mother.

    The Terminator : Negative. The T-1000's highest probability for success now will be to copy Sarah Connor and to wait for you to make contact with her.

    John Connor : Great, but what happens to her?

    The Terminator : Typically, the subject being copied is terminated.

    John Connor : Shit! Why didn't you tell me? We gotta go right now!

    The Terminator : Negative. She's not a mission priority.

    John Connor : Fuck you! She's a priority to me!

  • John Connor : We're not gonna make it, are we? People, I mean.

    The Terminator : It's in your nature to destroy yourselves.

    John Connor : Yeah. Major drag, huh?

  • John Connor : Are you ever afraid?

    The Terminator : No.

    John Connor : Not even of dying?

    The Terminator : No.

    John Connor : You don't feel any emotion about it one way or another?

    The Terminator : No. I have to stay functional until my mission is complete. Then it doesn't matter.

    John Connor : Yeah. I have to stay functional too. I'm "too important".

  • John Connor : [as he hacks an ATM]  Please insert your stolen card now.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • John Connor : Jesus, you were gonna kill that guy.

    The Terminator : Of course; I'm a Terminator.

  • John Connor : We got Skynet by the balls now, don't we?

  • John Connor : Does it hurt when you get shot?

    The Terminator : I sense injuries. The data could be called "pain."

  • John Connor : Where are we going?

    The Terminator : We have to get out of the city immediately and avoid the authorities.

    John Connor : Listen, I need to stop my my house. I want to pick up some stuff before we leave.

    The Terminator : Negative. The T-1000 will definitely try to reacquire you there.

    John Connor : Are you sure?

    The Terminator : I would.

  • John Connor : Did you call *moi* a dipshit?

  • John Connor : So this other guy: he's a Terminator like you, right?

    The Terminator : Not like me. A T-1000, advanced prototype.

    John Connor : You mean more advanced than you are?

    The Terminator : Yes. A mimetic polyalloy.

    John Connor : What the hell does that mean?

    The Terminator : Liquid metal.

  • John Connor : Wait a minute here. You're telling me that this thing can imitate anything it touches?

    The Terminator : Anything it samples by physical contact.

    John Connor : Get real, like it could disguise itself as a pack of cigarettes?

    The Terminator : No, only an object of equal size.

    John Connor : Then why doesn't it become a bomb or a machine gun or something to get me?

    The Terminator : The T-1000 can't form complex machines. Guns and explosives have chemicals in them. Moving parts. It doesn't work that way, but it can form solid metal shapes.

    John Connor : Like what?

    The Terminator : Knives and stabbing weapons.

  • Sarah Connor : You came here to stop me?

    John Connor : Yeah, I did.

  • 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 think 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?

  • [the Terminator hoists a huge gun and lopsidedly smiles] 

    John Connor : It's definitely you.

  • John Connor : You're not here to kill me. I figured out that for myself. So what's the deal?

    The Terminator : My mission is to protect you.

    John Connor : Yeah? Who sent you?

    The Terminator : You did. Thirty-five years from now, you reprogrammed me to be your protector here, in this time.

    John Connor : This is deep...

  • John Connor : [the Terminator rips open the steering column of a car to hotwire it, John interrupts, jingling a set of keys before him]  Are we learning yet?

  • John Connor : [to the Terminator]  This severe routine is getting old. You're acting like such a geek.

  • John Connor : [they're travelling in an ancient truck with the T-1000 hot on their heels]  Step on it!

    The Terminator : [the truck is only going about 65]  This is the vehicle's top speed.

    John Connor : I could get out and run faster than this!

  • John Connor : Easy money.

  • John Connor : Now don't take this the wrong way, but you're a Terminator, right?

    The Terminator : Yes. Cyberdyne Systems, Model 101.

  • [John Connor wants to get some things from home] 

    The Terminator : Negative. The T-1000 will definitely try to reacquire you there.

    John Connor : You sure?

    The Terminator : I would.

  • Jock : Fuck you, you little dip-shit!

    John Connor : Dip-shit?

    [to the Terminator] 

    John Connor : Put your leg down.

    [to the Jock] 

    John Connor : Did you call moi a dip-shit?

  • John Connor : We spent a lot of time in Nicaragua and places like that. For a while there, she was with this crazy ex-Green Beret guy, running guns. Then there were some other guys. She'd shack up with anybody she could learn from so she could teach me how to be this "great military leader." Then she gets busted. And it's like, "Sorry kid, your mom's a psycho. Didn't you know?" It's like everything I'd been brought up to believe was all made of bullshit. I hated her for that! But everything she said was true. She knew... and nobody believed her. Not even me.

  • John Connor : [repeated line, after he hacks into the ATM machine to steal money, after he bypasses the security code to steal one of the keys to the vault inside the Cyberdyne Systems building ]  easy money
