Episode Quotes
Sarah: (to John) If you're gonna be a hero, you need to learn how to drive stick!

Sarah: You know what I love about you guys? Even when you've evolved into the ultimate indestructible fighting machines, you're not above self-examination and improvement.
Cameron: Thank you.
Sarah: Please shut up.

Sarah: How could it be Cromartie? Are you forgetting that I blew his head off?
Cameron: I remember.

Cameron: (talking about Cromartie) He came through. He knows we're here.
Sarah: It's just a head.
Cameron: His chip is intact, we're programmed to repair ourselves, we're programmed to blend in. He might still need Coltan for a missing piece, a leg, an arm. He will rebuild and continue his mission to hunt and kill...
Sarah: I know what his mission is.

Sarah: Do you have any idea what's going on? I lost him! I lost John!
Cameron: I understand.
Sarah: It's impossible for you to understand.
Cameron: Without John your life has no purpose.
Sarah: I can't believe I let him talk me into this. You try to open your hands just a little and it's too soon.
Cameron: Is it? The world ends in four years.

Sarah: (to captured guard) You can go, if you can get past her. (indicating Cameron)

Cameron: This is it, this is where the factory will be.
What factory?
Cameron: Where I'll be made, me and many others, right there. It's inside. (talking about the vault) Coltan's rare in the future, the majority of it was destroyed when the bombs went off. He's stockpiling it for after judgment day. It's in the bunker where it will be safe.

Sarah: You okay?
John: I'm fine. Really. How many times we gotta have this talk?
Sarah: A lot I think.
