While Sarah's former fiancé forlornly looks at the ring (take it to the pawn shop, pal), Sarah voice-overs the Connor family rules while she and John hit the road: "Keep your head down. Keep your eyes up. Resist the urge to be seen as something important or special. Know your exits." The MacEachern family rules are a little more relaxed, but then again, my siblings and I aren't, as far as we know, responsible for humanity's future. (And if we are, nice knowing ya, humanity.)
A confused cop looks at a picture of Sarah and, baffled, says she's not missing, the way he explained. "Right, she's not missing, she left," agrees an annoyed Dean, and the cop tries to explain that people leave. "You don't know her," says Dean.
"I could say the same to you, Mr. Dixon," says a tall dude, striding into the room and flashing his FBI badge, and he starts quizzing Dixon about his relationship with Sarah. Does this FBI guy just hang out at the West Fork police department? Because the cop didn't exactly put out an APB on a runaway fiancée here. Or had the FBI agent already tracked the Connors to West Fork? And if so, how the hell big do they expect us to think West Fork is that he hasn't located them within West Fork? Oh, hang on -- just going to affix a sticky note to my computer that reads, "IT'S NOT A DOCUMENTARY." That should help.
FBI Guy tells Dixon about Skynet and Miles Dyson -- well, the version in which Sarah Connor escaped from a mental hospital and killed Dyson. Dixon isn't sure what to believe, since FBI Guy has a picture of Sarah in a file and everything! I don't believe my fiancée would do something like that, but then again, you do have a picture of her, and it's in a file folder and everything. "Why would she do that?" he asks. "Well, you know, Mr. Dixon," says FBI Guy (Agent James Ellison), "it's the robots. The ones from the future. The ones Skynet sent to kill her son." The "Luke Skywalker type" leading a "scrappy band of rebels." Dixon angrily says that John is like a son to him. "I came down here for help! You can't really be asking me this!" Ellison dials it down a notch to tell Dixon that he just wants to impress upon him how badly the U.S. government wants to find his fiancée, "because she's a deluded, dangerous Grade-A Whack-A-Mole who killed a man because she believes that in the future he'll invent a computer system that declares war on the world." Dixon stands there, seething. "So let's begin with her name," says FBI Guy, who says he already understands that it's not Connor.
