Welcome to the day after Judgment Day.(taglines)
- There once was a future in which humankind was hunted by a machine that could think and Terminators built to kill. A future without hope. That future never happened, because I stopped it to protect my son and to save us all.
- Funerals don't help them. And goodbyes don't help you. You just have to learn to live with it.
- Because I was her. And it sucks.
T-800 / CarlEdit
- Do you believe in fate, Sarah? Or do you believe that we all can change the future every second, by every choice that we make? You chose to change the future. You chose to destroy Skynet. You set me free. And now, I'm going to help you protect the girl because I choose to.
- Dani: Please, Mr. Grummond. It's my brother.
- Craig: But, Dani, he ain't you.
- Dani: [sighs] What's next? 3,000 people out there. What happens if I tell them they're just keeping a spot warm for some machine?
- Sarah: So, that machine... who sent it? I can't fight it if I don't know what we're up against.
- Grace: It's a Rev-9 model. You don't fight it. You run from it.
- Dani: Yeah, but who sent it?
- Grace: Not who. What. And it wasn't some... Skynet thing. In the future that actually happened... it's called Legion.
- Sarah: Legion.
- Grace: An AI built for cyber warfare.
- Sarah: [sighs] Those assholes never learn.
- Brenner: Sorry, but I don't have time for this shit. And it's not my problem. I need basic information. Name, age, country of origin.
- Dani: It's the truth, ma'am. I swear it. This machine, it killed my brother and my father, and now it wants to kill me, and he...
- Brenner: Uh-huh.
- Dani: Please! Officer, you have to believe me. You're in danger, too.
- Brenner: No. I'm in Processing. You ought to save your story till you get where you're going, honey.
- Rev-9: Expect a big ping, brother. My whole body's a weapon.
- Border Patrol agent: Save it for the ladies.
- [Metal detector beeps]
- Rev-9: Sorry. Metal hip. Two tours in Afghanistan.
- Border Patrol agent: All right. Thank you for your service.
- Dani: What did you tell them?
- T-800 / Carl: I told them you coming here makes this place unsafe for them. Also, the day I warned them might come, has come. My past has caught up with me. And... I won't be back.
- Dani: Do you love them?
- T-800 / Carl: Not like a human can. For many years, I thought it was an advantage. It isn't.
- Dani: I'm sorry.
- Rev-9: Give me the girl.
- Carl: No.
- Rev-9: You really should. You and I were built for the same purpose. But Legion is the only future.
- Carl: I came from a future like that. It failed.
- Rev-9: I know she's a stranger to you. Why not just let me have her?
- Sarah: Because we're not machines, you metal motherfucker!
- Welcome to the day after Judgment Day.
- Choose your fate.
