Funny: Terminator 2: Judgment Day
  • The stiff and clumsy manner in which The Terminator takes his vow
    John: Now you gotta promise you won't kill anyone, right.
    Terminator: Right
    John: You Swear?
    Terminator: Swear?
    John: Now put up your right hand and say "I swear I won't kill anybody."
    Termianator: (Parrots) I swear I won't kill anybody.
  • "He's my Uncle Bob..."
    • "Uncle Bob?"
  • After John finds out the terminator does whatever he says he asks him to stand on one leg. The scene follows with him standing on one leg whilst talking to some guys, until John quietly says "Put your leg down" out of the corner of his mouth.
    • Seconded. He says it like such a mom to the tall robotic assassin.
  • John makes the Terminator promise that it will not kill anyone. The Terminator proceeds to shoot the guard in the kneecaps. "He'll live."
  • "I need a vacation".
  • As Sarah is breaking out of the hospital, the guards try to reason with her and insist she's not a killer. Sarah snaps back they as far as she's concerned they're all dead anyway and they know how strongly she believes it, "so don't fuck with me!"
  • When they break into Cyberdyne:
    John: We got company.
    Dyson: Police?
    Sarah: How many?
    John: 'bout all of 'em, I think.
  • John needs money:
    John: (in a phone booth) You got a quarter?
    T-800: (smashes bottom of payphone, quarters fall out)
    • He follows it up by handing John just one given that's all he asked for.
  • When the Connors are planning to flee to Mexico. The Terminator sees a baby, then picks it up and looks at it like he has no idea what it is.
  • For all the tension in the scene, the T-1000's Finger Wag is pretty darkly hilarious, especially combined with Sarah's facial expression. You can tell she's mentally going, "Seriously? Seriously?"
  • John tries to explain what a smile is to T-800 - he then looks at a passer by and scans his smile to imitate it himself - this is the result.
  • John teaches T-800 to do high-fives and puts his own palm for T to swat it... with, basically, a metal rod. T doesn't break his arm, of course, but it still hurts.
