In any movie of the Terminator series, including the TV show Terminator: The Sarah Conner Chronicles, was there ever a scene that had a Terminator skeleton head talking? Not Terminator liquid models like the T-1000.

I mean without human skin or covering the face with cloth or any other thing.

  • Well, we know they can because it's implied here in Salvation (where a terminator skeleton mimics Kyle), but we don't actually see it.

  • Can Terminators without human tissue talk? - In the TV show, yes.

    As I said, you don't actually see it in my example, so that's not a real answer to your question. I merely commented that it's possible. [BTW, I have no idea why, but SE only informed me of your comment now even though it seems to be 8 days old.]

    There are no witches in the Terminator movies. Also, irrc that salvation scene, when the skin job terminator first meets a teenage kyle reese in a junk yard is the only example of a toaster head terminator talking. So @walt comment is the answer, unless there is something in SCC that does it.

Unskinned Terminators can talk.

In Terminator: Salvation we see a T-800 Endoskeleton speaking during the fight sequence between Kyle, John and an endo in the Terminator Factory. It imitates Reese to lure John to it.

enter image description here

VO: Connor. Connor help. Help! Connor it's Kyle! Help!

[John Rounds the corner only to come face to face with the endoskeleton Terminator. He's been tricked]

Note that at least the last couple of words are said with the Terminator in full view.

Similarly, we see an unskinned T-888 speaking in Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles - The Turk

enter image description here

Dr. Fleming: I have a camera. Would it be alright if I...

Terminator: Move away

[The Terminator then proceeds to remove its clothing revealing that it has no skin]
