No shit.

She's a total loser.

Come on.

Let's go spend some money.

It's like a giant strobe light...

burning right through my eyes.

Somehow I can still see.

Oh, God.

We know the dream's the same

every night.

- Why do I have to...

- Please continue.

Children look like burnt paper.


Not moving.

And then the blast wave hits them.

And they fly apart like leaves.


of cataclysm,

the end of the world...

are very common.

It's not a dream, you moron.

It's real.

- I know the date it happens.

- I'm sure it feels real to you.

On August 29, 1997...

it's gonna feel

pretty fuckin'real to you too!

Anybody not wearing two-million sunblock

is gonna have a real bad day. Get it?

God, you think

you're safe and alive.

You're already dead. Everybody!

Him. You. You're dead already.

This whole place,

everything you see is gone!

You're the one living in the dream,

'cause I know it happened!

It happened!

I feel much better now.


Yes, your attitude has been...

much improved lately.

It's helped me to have a goal...

something to look forward to.

What is that?

Well, you said...

that if I showed improvement

after six months...

you would transfer me

to the minimum security wing...

and I could have visitors.

Well, it's been six months...


I was looking forward

to seeing my son.

I see.

Let's go back to what you were saying

about those Terminator machines.

Now you think they don't exist?

They don't exist.

I know that now.

But you've told me on many occasions

about how you crushed one...

in a hydraulic press.

If I had, there would have

been some evidence.

They would have found something

at the factory.

I see.

So you don't believe anymore

that the company covered it up?

No. Why would they?

Let's try a new position
