Terminator Salvation

John Connor: Connor, get your ass topside. Remind those men they need to answer me on the radio, even if they are dead.

John Connor: Skynet has Kyle Reese.

General Ashdown: Then that is his fate.

John Connor: No, it's our fate. I have to save him. He is the key. The key to the future, to the past. Without him, we lose everything.

General Ashdown: No, you stay the course!

John Connor: If we stay the course, we are dead! WE ARE ALL DEAD!

General Ashdown: As of this moment, soldier, you are relieved of your command. You are no longer a part of this Resistance.

[Ashdown switches off comm]

Barnes: I didn't catch that last statement.

Comms Officer: Neither did I.

John Connor: [from trailer] We've been fighting a long time. We are outnumbered by machines. Working around the clock, without quit. Humans have a strength that cannot be measured. This is John Connor. If you are listening to this, you are the resistance.

John Connor: [points gun at Reese] What's your name?

Kyle Reese: Kyle Reese.

John Connor: [to Marcus] You and me, we've been at war since before either of us even existed. You tried killing my mother, Sarah Connor. You killed my father, Kyle Reese. You will not kill me.

John Connor: [to T-800] DO IT! YOU SON OF A BITCH!

[T-800 inflicts scars on John Connor]

John Connor: The devil's hands have been busy. What is it?

Kate Connor: It's real flesh and blood, though it seems to heal itself quickly. The heart is human and very powerful. The brain, too, but with a chip interface.

Marcus Wright: What have you done to me?

Kate Connor: It has a hybrid nervous system. One human cortex, one machine.

Marcus Wright: Blair, what have they done?

John Connor: Who built you?

Marcus Wright: My name is Marcus Wright.

John Connor: You think you're human?

Marcus Wright: I am human.

John Connor: This is John Connor. If you're listening to this, you are the resistence. Listen carefully, if we attack tonight, our humanity is lost. Command wants us to fight like machines. They want us to make cold, calculated decisions. But we are not machines! And if we behave like them, then WHAT IS THE *POINT* IN WINNING? Command is going to ask you to attack Skynet. I am asking you not to. If even one bomb drops on Skynet before sunrise, our future will be lost. So please stand down. Give me time to protect the future that all of us are fighting for. This is John Connor.

John Connor: What *are* you?

Marcus Wright: I don't know.

John Connor: Who built you?

Marcus Wright: [Held suspended in chains] My name is... Marcus Wright.

John Connor: You think you're human.

Marcus Wright: I am human.

[Connor steps forward, releases the chain holding Wright's head up, and looks down at his chest. Wright looks down at himself]

Marcus Wright: Noooooo!

[Horrified]

Marcus Wright: Nooo! Ahhhhhh!

[struggles against the chains]

John Connor: Where were you manufactured?

Marcus Wright: I was *born*. August 22, 1975.

[Screams again and fights against the chains, then looks at Connor]

Marcus Wright: I know you. I heard your voice on the radio. You're John Connor.

John Connor: Of course, you know me. You were sent here to kill me.

Marcus Wright: I don't know what you're talking about.

John Connor: Then why are you here?

Marcus Wright: Blair said you could help me find who I'm looking for.

[pause]

Marcus Wright: Now let me down.

John Connor: If I let you down, you'll kill everyone in this room.

Marcus Wright: [with one shake of his head] Just you, Connor. I didn't even know your name until two days ago.

John Connor: No. You and me. We been at war since before either of us existed. You tried killing my mother, Sarah Connor. You killed my father, Kyle Reese. You *will* not kill me.

Marcus Wright: Kyle Reese is on a transporter heading for Skynet. If I wanted to kill him, I would've done him in LA.
