"I'll Be Back."
At the station, Sarah is distraught over the news of Ginger's death. The lieutenant introduces her to Dr. Silberman, played by major Hey! It's That Guy Earl Boen. Trivia note: he's the only actor besides Schwarzenegger to appear in all three films (and the only one who played the same character in each one). Sarah's to tell him everything Reese told her. "Is Reese crazy?" she asks. "Well, that's what we're gonna find out," he says, clicking his pen.
Elsewhere, the Terminator has found the perfect place to hide out. It's got the basic tools he needs to repair the damage done to his system, and it's dimly lit for sci-fi action ambiance. His left eye appears to have been shot out, and there's a big hole on his right forearm -- we can see the machinery. Arnie picks up an X-Acto knife and gets to work, cutting deeper into his arm to get a better look at the special effects.
Meanwhile, a handcuffed Reese is being questioned by Silberman. It seems to be a surprise to Reese that the "I'm a time-travelling soldier" story isn't cutting it with the local authorities. "This computer thinks it can win by killing the mother of its enemy. Killing him, in effect, before he's even conceived. A sort of retroactive abortion," says Silberman. The cop, watching from behind the one-way glass, laughs, which isn't cool. In 2029 everyone knows you just don't discuss retroactive abortions at cocktail parties. The doctor wants to know why the computer didn't just kill John Connor back in the future. Reese "explains" that the computer's defences were smashed. The humans had won. "Taking out O'Connor then would make no difference. Skynet had to wipe out his entire existence." The human resistance captured the time-displacement lab, and found the Terminator had been sent back. O'Connor sent Reese back to intercept it, and then had the place blown up. So how are you supposed to get back? asks the doctor. "I can't. Nobody goes home. And nobody else comes through. It's just him and me."
As for "him," he's finished working on his arm, and is now going to work on his left eye. I hope that either that's a new X-Acto knife he's jabbing into his the pulpy mass that used to be an eyeball, or he disinfected the one he gouged into his arm with. Oh, wait -- in one of the shots, there's clearly no actual blade in the knife at all. Never mind. He plucks the eyeball out, and drops it in the sink. He wipes the eye socket out and is left with machinery and a camera lens with a light-sensitive shutter covering the bright red light underneath. Unfortunately, to achieve the effect, it looks like Arnie's wearing a mask over top of his face, one that's about as lifelike as the one Mike Myers wears in the Halloween movies. The Terminator looks at his robot eye in the mirror, apparently decides that bad breath and sweat doesn't exactly trump a futuristic eye socket filled with machinery when it comes to blending in with the humans, and opts for giant sunglasses. As was the style at the time. (Or still is, if you're eighty years old.) He gathers up his weapons and heads out onto the fire escape.
