Terminator 2: Judgement Day
written by James Cameron & William Wisher Jr.
(Sarah is watching herself interviewed on video while smoking a cigarette)
Sarah Connor: It's like a giant strobe light, burning right through my eyes, but somehow I can still see. Look, you know the dream's the same every night, why do I have to...(the doctor encourages her to continue) The children look like burnt paper, black, not moving. And then, the blast wave hits them and they fly apart like leaves...It's not a dream, you moron, it's real. I know the date it happens...on August 29th, 1997, (exploding with panicked hysterical rage) it's gonna feel pretty FUCKING REAL to you, too! Anybody not wearing two million sunblock is gonna have a real bad day, get it?!...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 livin' in a FUCKING dream, Silverman! Because I know it happens. IT HAPPENS! (the video is paused on her angry hysterics)
Sarah: I feel much better now. Clearer.
