Sarah's transaction to buy the Turk from a mysterious businessman gets very complicated. Elsewhere, Cromartie closes in on John's location, and Agent Ellison closes in on the Terminator he knows as Laszlo. Unfortunately, events spiral out of control, leaving a wake of destruction from which some will not survive.moreless

Goof: When John and Derek watch Young Derek and Kyle play baseball in the park, Young Derek hits the ball and it travels past the right of Young Kyle. In the next shot, though, Young Kyle runs left to retrieve the ball.
Goof: There is a typo on Sarkissian's passport. One date is recorded as March 2, 20015.
At the beginning of the episode a guy is playing a video game; Bungie's Halo 2 (the chapter Metropolis).
Goof: During the raid when you see the final FBI agent land in the water he is supposed to be sinking to the bottom of the pool. However, he is breathing in air bubbles and it is clear the shot was just played back in reverse.
John mentions Moore's Law. Every two years the number of transistors on a chip double. He continues about "the guy who founded Intel" quoting this law. Gordon E. Moore, co-founder of Intel, phrased in 1965, that the complexity of a circuit doubles every year. In 1975 he corrected it to "every two years".
Judgement Day is revealed to be April 21, 2011 at the beginning of the episode. The last known date for Judgement Day was given during T3, which was July 24, 2004. Prior to that it was August 29, 1997.
Nitpick: At Enrique's nephew's house the guy who stole the Turk said that Los Ninos Heroes died defending Chapultec Castle, when in reality it was Chapultepec Castle.
Sarah: Your birthday is important.
John: No, it's not important. Finding the Turk, stopping Skynet, Judgment Day. That's important. That's our life.
Sarah: It's our mission. This is our life. If we stop caring about that, then we're lost.
Derek: (watching young Kyle play) Throws pretty good for a five year old, huh? Your father always had a nice arm.
John: (tearing up) How'd you know?
Derek: Every time I look at you I see him. Besides, your mom's his type. Happy Birthday.
Derek: (about the park) It's beautiful here, isn't it? Y'know, you stay here long enough you fool yourself into thinking this is how it's always gonna be. Then you remember what this place'll look like when it's on fire and you realize you'll do whatever it takes to keep from watching it burn again.
John: (about the dead guy) Did he say anything? A name, a location?
Cameron: He said very little, and then he was quiet.
Sarah: (to Charley) Do you remember what you saw here? What we destroyed, who destroyed it? The FBI can't protect us, you can't protect us. If one of them follows you here - not the FBI, one of them - you'll have killed us. So take your wife, get as far away from here as you can. Forget me. Forget John. Just go.
Ellison: If Sarah is alive, and I believe she is, we are working in a realm where much, perhaps anything is possible- robots, soldiers from the future, Skynet.
Charley: If Sarah were alive, I'm sure she'd like to hear you say that.
Sarah Connor: (Closing narration) In Lord of the Flies, a group of boys slaughter a pig in the jungle. They torture it and place its head on a sharpened stake as an offering to the beast that hovers, god-like, over the island. Black blood drips down the pig's teeth. And the boys run away. Later, when one of the boys is alone, he weeps. But not for the pig. The boy weeps for the end of innocence and the darkness of men's hearts.
Derek: So it's your birthday.
John: Yeah, how'd you know?
Derek: You kidding? I celebrated your 30th with you.
John: How was that?
Derek: You got drunk as a skunk. Come on. I'll buy you a beer.
John: I'm 16.
Derek: All right, I'll buy you an ice cream cone. Come on.
John: Look, he double-encrypted the drive. I've unlocked a lot of it, but there's still a lot left to go through.
Sarah: How much?
John: That's about a thousand useful files. Each one takes about five minutes to decrypt and I'm on number 37. You do the math.
Greta Simpson: George Lazlo's a better actor than we thought.
James Ellison: That's not Lazlo.
Greta Simpson: James, are we looking at the same picture here? This is your guy. It's Lazlo.
James Ellison: The blood doesn't match.
Greta Simpson: Come on, what are you saying? That this guy somehow killed six people and then found a plastic surgeon who made him look identical to George Lazlo? And then what? Killed Lazlo, stole his identity, and then put himself in the FBI Database as this guy, Kester? To what end? What's the goal here? Who is he?
James Ellison: What is he?
Greta Simpson: What is he?
James Ellison: Yeah. What is he? What is he, that stands across from a man after killing two other men within 36 hours. And when asked of his involvement, cannot only lie, but lie well? And not only lie well, but not blink or twitch or perform one simple human reaction to the situation. So, yes, I think it's fair to ask: What is he?
Sarah: Can you get through the door?
Cameron: Yes. But the wall would be much faster.
Morris: Um, you think maybe you might wanna go to the prom with me?
John: Just say yes!
Morris: Wow, is this your car?
Cameron: No, it belongs to the guy I killed and stuffed in the trunk.
Cameron: You haven't spoken for 28 minutes.
John: Well, it's nothing. All right, my birthday's tomorrow, okay? I know that mom totally forgot.
John: Hey, you don't know what a birthday is?
Cameron: It's the day you were born.
John: Pretty memorable for a mother, right?
Cameron: But it was 16 years ago.
John: No, a birthday's like a holiday. Like once a year, every year, people just kind of celebrate you, I guess. And you get presents and you eat cake and it's fun. It's supposed to be. Last year, mom got me a flak jacket.
Cameron: That's a tight present.
John: No, it's not. Whatever, look, I don't know why I care. I've been driving since I was 12, and, technically, this is my 24th birthday. It's just I time traveled over eight of them.
Cameron: Do I have a birthday?
John: I don't know. Were you born?
Cameron: I was built.
John: Well, then, maybe you have like a built day.
Sarkissian: If I was gonna sell you the Turk, you'd have had it by now. So this is my counter offer, the money you was gonna pay me for the Turk, you take that number and you multiply it by four.
Sarah: $2 million?
Sarkissian: You're a fugitive, Ms. Connor. Might make that a small price for freedom.
(Derek grabs him and throws him against the wall)
Derek: Here's my counter offer. You tell us where the Turk is, we keep our money, and I bury you in the back yard.
Derek: I love these places.
Sarah: Food courts?
Derek: First day after me and the guys jumped through, we went to the Century City mall and we spent the whole day there. We all puked. You know, the funny thing, in the future, that place is a concentration camp.
Derek: You can't just give a briefcase full of money to a guy like that and expect he's just gonna hand over the Turk.
Sarah: Actually, I can.
Derek: (About the diamonds) Well, those are from the safe house I set up, so, technically, they're mine.
Sarah: Well, I'm guessing you stole them, so, technically, they're evidence in a felony.
(Looking at a diamond)
Cameron: Bright yellow tint. Grade M. Slightly included shallow cut.
James Ellison: And I heard, as it were, the noise of thunder. And I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, 'come and see'. And I looked. And behold, a pale horse. And his name that sat on him was death. And hell followed with him.
Unknown sender: I understand you're interested in buying the turk.
Unknown sender: $500,000. Vally Square Mall Food Court. Tomorrow. 2 PM. Next to the ATM.
(Unknown sender logs off before Sarah can respond)
Sarah: Nice doing business with you.
Derek: How do you tell an eight-year-old machines have taken over the world?
John: How do you?
Derek: You don't.
John: Moore's Law.
John: Moore's Law. The guy who founded Intel said that every two years, the number of transistors on a computer chip doubles. 30 years ago, it was an observation, now it's a law. Tech industry spent billions doubling chip power.
John: And that's how we can go from a chess computer to the apocalypse in just four years.
(Cameron speaks Armenian)
Cameron: He's a very hot headed man. I learned Armenian.
Cameron: The guy we're meeting with, his name's Sarkissian. That's Armenian.
Sarah: Well, we're not here to charm him, we're here to get the Turk and get out, simple.
Sarah Connor: (Opening narration) When John was little, he used to sleep with his hand under my chin. At night, I lay awake watching him. Calm, peaceful, happy. I wanted to freeze time and let my son live in that moment forever. But you can't freeze time. You can't protect your children from the future that awaits them. The moment's there and then, it's gone.
Derek: Remind me again, why are the boys out here and the girls in there?
John: Because one of the boys is still wanted for murder and one of the girls is harder than nuclear nails...
Derek: And the other one's a cyborg.

In Latin America, this episode was translated as "Contemplacion", which means "Contemplation".

Hatful of Hollow:

The biblical verse that Agent Ellison recites is an amalgamation of Revelation 6:1 and Revelation 6:8, from the King James Version of the New Testament.
Los Niños Héroes:
At Enrique's nephew's house hangs a sword with the inscription Los Niños Héroes. Los Niños Héroes (the "Boy Heroes" or "Heroic Cadets") were six teenage military cadets who died defending Mexico at Mexico City's Chapultepec Castle (then serving as the Mexican army's military academy) from invading U.S. forces in the September 13, 1847 Battle of Chapultepec. Their commanders, General Nicolás Bravo and General José Mariano Monterde, had ordered them to fall back from Chapultepec but the cadets did not; instead, they resisted the invaders until they were killed, with accounts maintaining that the last survivor leapt from Chapultepec Castle wrapped in the Mexican flag to prevent it from being taken by the enemy. The cadets are honored by an imposing monument at the entrance to Chapultepec Park; and the name Niños Héroes, along with the cadets' individual names, are commonly given to streets, squares and schools across the country. For many years they appeared on the MXP $5000 banknote, and they currently appear on the MXN $50 coin. Metro Niños Héroes the Mexico City Metro is also named after them.
