      Horny boyfriends should really learn to recognize the voice of their girlfriends before talking all dirty on the phone.

        Shotgun shells are on the counter for you to grab and load into your gun. If the store owner says you can't do that, they're WRONG!

          A Terminator that kills out of convenience will patiently wait for a store clerk to get his weapons.

            Thinking about how its possible to send your lieutenant back in time to have sex with your mother so you can be born and lead the future resistance gives me a headache.

              It's so cool to see someone murdered on the news with an identical name to yours.

                    It's more or less pivotal to the plot of the series.

                    Apparently in the future, machines don't have access to a single picture of their main nemesis. I suppose Google's world domination efforts didn't go that well.

                    They sold phase plasma rifles with 40 watt range in 1984. It's just not visible on the shelf.

                      In the future, if a really buff Mr. Universe-looking contestant comes into your bunker, you can bet it's a terminator.

                              When I think of Christian Bale's mother and father Linda Hamilton and Michael Bien sure aren't the first people to come to mind.

                                Terminators don't feel pain, but Michael Biehn does.

                                  Everybody likes to bite Michael Biehn's hand. Newt did it and Ed Harris did it too. I wonder what it tastes like.

                                      If a cyborg assassin from the future hellbent on killing you enters the police station in which you are staying and starts going on a rapid and relentless killing spree, don't bother putting on the protective vest that the lieutenant gave to you. Just hide under the desk.

                                        Cops in the 80's didn't check the top floor of the store where they're pursuing a possible criminal. Simply shining your flashlight in the staircase gives you enough assurance that he is not on the top floor.

                                          I guess it doesn't feel so great if you personally have to arrange a booty call for your mother or you cease to exist. That sucks man...

                                                      Apparently 2027 didn't have the tech to have Terminator go back in time with infinite cash.

                                                        Infinite cash? They couldn't even send a pair of speedos with him.

                                                      When a creepy Austrian wearing sunglasses at night states that he'll be back, one should reconsider if he means it when he'll be back.

                                                        Cops in the 80s don't consider civilians or detainees as worth protecting when a psychotic killing machine (literally) guns through the station armed with a machine gun and SPAS-12 gauge.

                                                          No one in the 80s knew trigger discipline or how to aim an assault rifle.

                                                            Terminator, produced in 2027, is so real that he is just like the average 80s action film gunman that fires only from the hip and suffers from recoil from handguns held in one hand.
