  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • John: Is Henry Going to be Okay?
      Zoe: Henry Smokes a lot of weed.

    • John: (when they crash the wake) What's the point?
      Derek: You know what the point is. Your mom thinks that factory was linked to Skynet.
      John: Yeah, and you think she's nuts.
      Derek: Doesn't mean I think she's wrong.

    • Zoe: Am I crazy, or is that girl creepily staring at us?!
      John: (embarrassed when he sees the girl is Cameron) That would be my sister.
      Zoe: I don't like that.
      John: Uh, no, no reason to.

    • Weaver: (completely deadpan) Would you excuse me, Mr Ellison? I'm feeling emotional.

    • Cameron: Native-Americans believe that when their pictures are taken, their souls are stolen and locked in the photograph forever.
      Derek: I think you're safe.

    • John: God, I hate funerals.
      Sarah: I hate Skynet.

    • Zoe: So, you know somebody in Charm Acres, John? Or are you just a sucker for a small town, homey vigil?
      John: My mom, uh, worked at the factory. So she, uh, you know, came to pay her respects.
      Zoe: So you got dragged along.
      John: Little drag, also some push. It seemed like the right thing to do.
      Zoe: Stupid thing to do, if you had a choice. Did you have a choice? Funeral crasher. Stupid funeral crasher.

    • John (referring to Henry): Is that your boyfriend?
      Zoe: You know, he keeps applying for the job. I'm just not hiring.

    • John (referring to dead cows): What's killing them?
      Henry: Idiots with guns.
      Cameron: No bullet wounds.
      Zoe: What are you, Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman?
      John: Maybe it's the water?
      Cameron: You'd think people would've picked up on that.

    • John: So, you think what - that somebody sabotaged the plant … and killed all these people? Your father?
      Zoe: It wasn't an accident, John. Moo.

    • Sarah: Skynet's here, Reese. I can feel it. (Derek chuckles) What?
      Derek: You called me "Reese" again. That's what you used to call him, isn't it? Kyle? You know, maybe you should try to let him go.
      Sarah: Maybe you should.

    • John: Is Henry gonna be okay?
      Zoe: Henry smokes a lot of weed.
      John: You know, my father died before I was even born.
      Zoe: Yeah, well, my father's a pile of ashes somewhere, so I guess we're both screwed.
      John: I thought you picked out a gray suit to bury him in?
      Zoe: Why am I even talking to you? You don't know me. You don't know what I'm going through. Stop trying to make it seem like you're some kind of sensitivity expert. You don't know anything.

    • Cameron (referring to Zoe): She hasn't looked at her father's picture since we've been here … not once. Neither has her mother.
      Derek: Yeah, and?
      Cameron: If you had a photo of Kyle Reese, you'd look at it, wouldn't you? Maybe there's something I don't understand.
      John: He's not dead.
      Derek: That's a big leap.
      John: Let me repeat what she said : if you had a photo of your brother, would you or would you not look at it?
      Derek (Derek looks at the two women): He's not dead.
      Cameron: We should find him before he is.

    • Derek: We're at a wake … a fake wake.

    • Stella McCarthy: Now, you think I'm sad, that I am pathetic, that I'm what … that I just sleepwalked my way through all of this. Well, maybe you're right, maybe I looked the other way. Well, we all did, every one of us. And maybe that's not what you think you would do, but that is what most people do.
      Zoe: Mom, you don't owe them this.
      Stella McCarthy: So there's no plant now, no plant, no Charm Acres. But it is a lot of insurance money, enough for my family to get lost and start over. So I didn't ask any questions. Why would I start now … when we are so close?

    • Sarah: You may not like asking questions, but me, once I get started, I can't stop.

    • Diana Winston: Look, I deserve the truth. I opened up to you.
      Sarah: Sometimes it's better not to ask too many questions.

    • Weaver: You know, any time you want to see your father, we have videos.
      Savannah: It's not the same.
      Weaver: Why?
      Savannah: I can't sit on his lap.
      Weaver: Come, sit on my lap.
      Savannah: (climbs on its lap) Your lap is cold.
      Weaver: I know.
