Here's another one that I just noticed: “Later”, Cameron processes something, (ponders), then asks, “Do you have a history of California field artillery? I’m interested in the ancient muzzle loading rifles used during the Modoc Indian war”. Again Eric is mesmerised by the things that interests her. He makes a face, laced with besottedness, “er, in the California room”. He smiles at her, she smiles so sweetly back that he probably floats in the air. (Why she chose this subject is a mystery to me - Perhaps she is like Skynet and wanted to see if Skynet sent terminators that far back in time?) 2_11 Self Made Man
I thought now would be a good time to check it out on Wikia. The Modoc War, or Modoc Campaign (also known as the Lava Beds War), was an armed conflict between the Native AmericanModoc people and the United States Army in northeastern California and southeastern Oregon from 1872 to 1873. Edward Muybridge photographed the early part of the US Army's campaign. So, it happened after the U.S. Civil war of approx. 1865. (This is me quoting the last line after I checked out the history during the viewing of Alphas where a Union soldier time jumps from that era to the present.)

@Cammy #33, agreed tough choice . I'm not sure, but I think this particular episode (S02E17 Ourselves Alone), is the one I like most as a hole. And that is because of the scenes you mentioned, because of a lot of Cameron time, because of Cameron sweetness to John, to birds etc. Good answers from both . To the Sweetest Terminator in the Verse..., Summtris (game), Twitter
Seeing as how Summer Glau as Cameron is the sole reason I started watching TSCC, that's a hard choice to make. I can honestly say I like all of her scenes, she was fantastic as Cam.
I would say though: the one that stands out the most for me is when she's crossing the street and gets hit by that car in the second episode. Her head and the top of her shoulders go right through the windshield, she looks up at the stunned family of three and says, "please remain calm."
lol I'm rewatching this series and I can't get over how good she was in this
I love the emotions of Cameron. At first I think I even believe in them, but then, after thinking, in every emotion I can find logic, a goal. And I like to watch the reaction of John and the others. Although I think with my head, I believe that Cameron and John still had a relationship, at least a close affection. In general, it's because Cameron was a cyborg, I loved watching the emotions). P.S Sorry for my English.
I highly prefer the comical scenes of any Terminator movie or series, and Summer Glau is no exception. Sure, the scene where she is captured between two trucks begging for her existance is great, but i loved the rare scenes where she went to school with John, desperately trying to appear human, and the harder she tries the more she fails. XDXDXDXD
My favorite scene is where she tries to pass the security barrier. I thought how on earth is she going to pass? ???_??? And then John came up with that brilliant excuse, that she has a metal plate due to an accident.
My second favorite scene is where the chief teacher (or however that job is called in english) asks her what the suicide girl said to her, and Cameron quotes her exact words using that girls voice.
Too bad we never saw Cameron completely nude, erm i mean Skeleton only, that would be fun too.
