Sarah berating John
T2 deleted scene
Sarah tells John not to cry when they have just escaped from the Pescadero State Hospital.
Van Ling (Creative Supervisor), in T2, the Book of the Film, An Illustrated Screenplay:
Due to the complications of either using a beam-splitter on set or doing an expensive rotoscope job, Terminator does not have glowing red eyes in this scene. Although filmed, Sarah's berating John for crying was deemed unnecessarily harsh extra beat to the scene and was cut from the picture.
Terminator 2 script, revised final shooting script:
81 INT./EXT. SECURITY CAR A GHOST CAR blasts out of the darkness on a long stretch of moonlight highway. Headlights off, the hospital security car punches a hole in the wind. 81A INSIDE THE SPEEDING CAR the energy is still high. The air is blowing in the shattered windows as Terminator drives the car easily by electronic night-vision. His eyes glow faintly red. JOHN Can you see anything? 81B TERMINATOR'S POV. A monochrome image of the highway lit bright as day. 81C Terminator replies in a matter-of-fact tone. TERMINATOR Everything. JOHN Cool. Sarah looks at Terminator, still not quite believing this is happening. But this is a different Sarah than the waitress of 1984. She spends only a second or two dealing with the unbelievable. Then she turns to John in the back seat. SARAH You okay? He nods. She reaches for John and we think she's going to hug him. She starts to rub her hands over him and we realize she's checking for injuries, very clinically the way a vet checks a dog for broken bones. He pulls away from her. He hates her always checking him, treating him like he might break, like some piece of rare china. JOHN I said I was okay. Sarah looks at him, exasperated and stern. SARAH It was stupid of you to go there. John stares at her, surprised. SARAH Goddamnit, John, you have to be smarter than that. You're too important! You can't risk yourself, not even for me, do you understand? I can take care of myself. I was doing fine. Jesus, John. You almost got yourself killed. We see his chin quiver. He's a tough kid, but all he really wants is for her to love him. He hasn't had enough years on the planet yet to be the man of steel she demands. JOHN I... had to get you out of the place... I'm sorry, I... His face crumples. He starts to cry. Sarah gives him a cold stare. SARAH Stop it! Right now! You can't cry, John. Other kids can afford to cry. You can't. He's trying to be brave, he really is. Terminator turns and sees the water leaking from his eyes. It doesn't make and sense to him. TERMINATOR What is wrong with your eyes? John turns away, ashamed. Sarah lets her breath out, realizing how keyed up she is. She turns to Terminator, giving him a wary once- over. SARAH So what's your story? CUT TO:
