16. Daddy Issues - Terminator 2: Judgment Day
The Terminator Moment: Stopping at Enrique’s for a brief pause in their gun-totin’ action, Sarah reflects on the situation while the Terminator and John goof around.
Why It’s Great: While much ceremony is made about the Terminator’s ability to change, this brief interlude proves Sarah too can adapt.
Memorable Quote: Sarah's 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."
