Trivia: In the movie, Kate's fiance Scott is referred to as "Scott Mason", but in the credits, he is listed as "Scott Petersen", they changed the dialogue of his name in light of Scott Peterson, the man accused of killing his wife and unborn son in California. The name Scott Petersen also appears on the list of inmates in Demolition Man
Trivia: The movie didn't have enough money to shoot the scene where the Terminator was being smashed through the building. So Arnold Schwarzeneggar paid for it with his own money. The total was $1 or 2 million. He said that was a scene he was looking forward to and he really wanted it in the film.
Trivia: When Catherine tells the Terminator where John Conner was after the Terminator promises to let her go, the Terminator reneges on his promise and when she protests, he says "I lied." This is a reference to another Schwarzenegger film "Commando" (1985) where Col. John Matrix says the same line to Sully after he reneges on his promise.
Trivia: Dr. Silberman, the psychiatrist from the first two movies, makes a cameo appearance in "The Rise of the Machines" and makes some comments about seeing "crazy stuff" when in a hostage situation. This is an homage to an un-filmed scene from "Judgement Day" (1991) which featured Dr. Silberman being taken away in a straight-jacket after the T-1000 attack at the hospital.
