At the tournament, which appears to be as much robot expo as chess tournament, an increasingly uneasy Sarah strolls around looking at the displays. A giddy Andy strolls up, thrilled that she showed up to see him in all his nerd-tastic glory. "God, I love robots," he says, having no idea that each word he says gets him closer to a bullet in the head. He's pretty terminally dorky, but at least it's in that endearing sense when people are so passionate about something. Like how I feel about booze!
Up they go to his hotel room, where he shows off Turk II, which is different from its predecessor in a few ways. It's more adaptable, less predictable, that kind of thing. Sarah says it sounds like it's more human than Turk I. Andy fails to catch the waves of nausea rolling off of Sarah, and offers the analogy that Turk I had matured into a brooding teenager, while Turk II is still a precocious child.
An older, bearded man strides into the room. Andy introduces him as Dmitri, but Dmitri's cell phone is apparently permanently welded to his ear, and he can barely be bothered to say hello. He does, however, take a moment to inform Andy that Sarah will never sleep with him. Never. Then he gets back on the phone and strides right out again. How does he know? Can he see the future? Is he FROM THE FUTURE? Andy says Dmitri's just wound up about the military contract. Sarah's all, who in the what now? And Andy explains that the winner gets a military contract. This is far more egregious than Andy's robot love, and I'm kind of surprised he ends the scene still alive.
Meanwhile, a frustrated Charley, being questioned by Chrome "Kester" Artie figures the FBI should get its story straight as to whether Sarah is still alive or not. After Chrome Artie is momentarily bewildered by a ringing cell phone (set to "vibrate"), he admits that the FBI only just figured out Sarah and John are still alive.
And then along comes Penny, who's somewhat surprised to be awkwardly questioned by the FBI agent about her husband's ex-girlfriend. "John wanted to marry Sarah Connor before you," Chrome Artie informs her, and that's why he thinks Sarah might be hiding out here. Charley glares at him all "Dude! NOT cool!" He tells Agent Kester with "all due respect" that the Sarah he knew, who was Sarah Reese, blew herself up in the bank eight years ago. "I never knew, and I do not know, Sarah 'Connor.'" Chrome Artie considers this, then reaches in his pocket for a card to hand to Charley. "If you ever see or hear anything, give me a call. Anytime. I never sleep."
Over at Terminator High School, a memorial to Jordon is threatening to take over an entire hallway. There's a picture of Jordon in a cheerleader's outfit. A teacher, played by Neil Hopkins, also known as Charlie's older brother Liam on Lost, reminds everyone dropping off bad poetry and stuffed animals that he's available for grief counseling in his office. I got ten bucks says it's the same office where Jordon got herself into trouble. Cameron is absolutely mystified by the memorial. Join the club, Cameron. John explains that people are writing notes to Jordon, which only confuses Cameron more, since Jordon's DEAD and all. "Yeah, I remember watching her fall," snaps John, whose sarcasm is completely lost on Cameron, who says, "Me too." She wants to know how Jordon's going to get the notes. John explains that sometimes things happen that are so bad that people don't know how to handle it, so they put it in a note. "But I thought people cried when they're sad," says Cameron. Sometimes that's not enough, says John. Don't you know that tears are not enough? I suppose it's understandable that John felt if he saved the cheerleader, he'd save the world.
