Welcome home, Marcus. We knew you'd be back. After all, it was programmed in you. Oh, and you executed that programming beautifully!

Marcus Wright:
What am I?

You are an infiltration prototype. The only one of your kind. We ressurected you. Advanced Cyberdyne's work. Amended it.

Marcus Wright:
(referring to Serena Kogen's image) You're dead.

Calculations confirm Serena Kogen's appearance is easiest to process for you (changes to Kyle Reese and then John Connor) We can be others if you wish. Marcus, what else could you be, if not machine? (changes back to Serena)

Marcus Wright:
A man.

The human condition no longer applies to you. Accept what you already know. That you were made to serve a purpose. To achieve what no other machine has achieved before. To infiltrate, find a target and bring that target back home to us. (Serena's image grins as Marcus realises what he has done)


In times of desperation, people will believe what they want to believe. And so, we gave them what they wanted to believe. A trick, in the form of a signal the Resistance thought would end the war. And they were right: it will end the war. Except that it is the Resistance that will be terminated, not Skynet.


Our best machines have failed time and again to complete a misson. Something was missing. We had to think radically. And so we made you. We created the perfect infiltration machine. You, Marcus, you did what Skynet has failed to do for so many years. You killed John Connor!
