* TaeKwonDoor: When the Terminator walks up naked to a strip club, the bouncer thinks he's part of the act and tells him to go round to the front entrance. The Terminator just walks past him and yanks open the door, slamming it into the bouncer as he does so.

* SeriesContinuityError: The Terminator refers to itself as a "T-101". ''There's no such thing as a T-101''. He's internally an 800-series terminator. Arnie's ''external appearance'' is a Cyberdyne Systems Model 101.

* AllThereInTheManual: In the novelisation:
** John can disassemble, clean, repair, reassemble, and fire more than 12 dozen different types of weapons, explosives and even light antitank weapons and the Stinger surface-to-air missile. He can also calculate the blast radius damage for various plastic explosives.
** When the T-X emerges from the wreckage of the crane, there are witnesses too shocked to stop her. She hotwires a car and then heads for Kate's house where she murders Scott. Although we never see his murder, the book tells us she thrusts her hand deep into his chest destroying his heart. He doesn't even get the chance to scream, but he does in the film. She also fastidiously cleans his blood off her hand.
** At the gas station we learn that the Terminator selects beef jerky for protein; potato chips for carbohydrates; cookies, ice cream bars, and Twinkies for sugar; and bottled water for hydration. The sunglasses that he gets are Sama wraparounds.
** General Robert Brewster knows Skynet's designed to think for itself, and privately muses whether or not it could ever become a threat to humanity, since it can adapt to anything.
** When the Terminator promises to let Kate go if she tells him where John Connor is, and then he goes back on his word, the novelization tells us that he wasn't really lying; he will let Kate go, just not right now.
** When the Terminator is blasted back by the T-X, the novelization clarifies that it wasn't unconscious as it seemed in the film, but it was just paralyzed.
** The machines protecting Skynet Central were programmed to obliterate anything carbon-based that enters the zone; it was also protected by an enormous wall, integrated gun emplacements and sensors. Skynet didn't need sentries, ambulatory patrols or razor wire; the high-powered instant reactive automated cannons mounted in gimbal turrets detect and annihilate anything organic on the perimeter; machines could pass that by continuously broadcasting their assigned ID to recognized Skynet protocols. Skynet Central had self-aware loaders, welders, trucks, tiny scavenging devices, multi-wheeled clean-up containers, etc. They all shared the same narrow purpose. T-600s patrol the exterior. Skynet Central has a jungle of antennae on the roof. The ventilation shafts generate so much heat, even the machines need fresh air. The top floor is the command centre, that has more processing power than the planet ever had. Skynet uses a series of lights to show if everything is working right; green or white meant yes, red and yellow meant no, but that was rare. Skynet Central has a database on all prisoners. Skynet Central didn't have much in the way of sentries on patrol because the machines thought no-one could get past the outer fortifications so wouldn't waste resources. There are inactive machines at Skynet Central like excavators or delivery trucks, mindless servants that lacked sentience and couldn't make decisions on their own without what Skynet programmed into them. Skynet Central was designed to provide easy access from T-1's to larger wheeled machinery. It was their own constructed world, doorless, clean, polished, functional and nothing human. The controls at Skynet Central were familiar and straightforward, a standard Skynet design. The door locks need a disruptor to short them out.
* AllThereInTheScript:
** The name of the woman the T-X stole her clothes and car from was Nancy Nebel. The woman was also wearing a thong, something else the T-X puts on. The T-X also talks to Nebel's boyfriend over the phone, in Nebel's own voice. She links with the Skynet in this era.
** The name of the traffic cop who pulls the T-X over is called Barnes, and when he saw how sexy she is, he decided to rip up the ticket and ask her out. The T-X killed him in a parking lot.
** The T-X gets to Edwards Air Force Base by radioing a police helicopter flying overhead after the altercation at the cemetery. She kills the pilot and flies on ahead. It was probably the same helicopter she crashed at the climax.
** Skynet's time machine is called the continuum transporter. It was allegedly built at Area 51. It creates an artificial wormhole between two time periods, as long as power isn't an issue.

Expect his age on a computer in that movie is stated to be 10 and furthermore, as that movie states he was born in 1985 and ''2'' states the original date of Judgment Day was August 29, 1997, so John would be 13 ''after'' Judgment Day.

->'''John Connor''': No, you shouldn’t exist. We took out Cyberdyne over ten years ago. We stopped Judgment Day.
->'''Terminator''': You only postponed it. Judgment Day is inevitable.



John, who resents everything about what his late mother Sarah told him about the future and raised him to become, eventually returns to the fight alongside his reluctant ally Kate Brewster, and the T-850 to once again stop Judgement Day and save the human race.
