The second of two movies with Earl Boen which ends in nuclear war. The first was Miracle Mile (1988), which has a character named after Harlan Ellison who is also given a writing credit for The Terminator (1984).
The future has not been written. There is no fate but what we make for ourselves. I wish I could believe that. My name is John Connor, they tried to murder me before I was born, when I was 13 they tried again. Machines from the future. Terminators. ...
The Terminator meant to say "we must reacquire Katherine Brewster." Instead he said "require".
