Quotes Edit

  • Sarah Connor: My father slept with a gun under his pillow. There was no pill for his sickness, no medicine to ease his mind. He left blood, and sweat, and part of his soul in a foreign land. My father never talked to me about the war he fought. He never talked to anyone. Ever vigilant, ever silent. I never thought I'd follow in his footsteps.


  • Sarah Connor: In 1678, doctors diagnosed the mental affliction soldiers suffered from as nostalgia. Homesickness. A longing to return to the past. The cruel reality of war is that there is no return home. No return to innocence. What is lost is lost forever. Like my father, war's wounds have bled me dry. No words of comfort. No words of forgiveness. No words at all.


  • Sarah Connor: John is not suicidal.
  • Derek Reese: No. But what is he? He's not a boy. He's not a man. He's not a soldier. He has changed.
