Sarah's mother


There is not a lot of humour in this film. However, I did find it funny when Sarah calls her mother.

As usual in action movies, the person being hunted rings home when they should not. Sarah speaks to her mother without realising that the Terminator has "acquired" her and is mimicking her voice. It gets her current location and signs off"I love you too, Sweetheart".Clearly Arnold's voice was dubbed by a actress.

Sarah felt a little uneasy during that encounter...especially at the end.

Why the hell would Sarah "realize" a machine from the future - which she never heard of before a few hours ago - was mimicking her mom's voice?

And of course Arnold's voice was dubbed, he can't mimic a woman.

What kind of post is this?

You have misunderstood my post. I was commenting on the dark humour in the scene. I was not picking the thing apart searching for logic . It is a science fiction film after all.

You think that scene was dark humor?

I remember seeing the movie in a theater long time ago and this scene with the mothers's voice felt creepy and was unexpected. No doubt this film had a horror element to it.

I have noticed watching this multiple times that the Terminator does take a few seconds longer than normal to say, "I love you too, sweetheart." in her mom's voice. It probably had its computer list options to reply like in the "Fuck you, asshole." scene earlier.
