I'll Be Back

T-800 claimed it was a friend of Sarah Connor.

As a machine, a common Terminator, such as a T-800, is not capable of lying, or it can lie rather poorly, due to its design and programming. However, there are several models built as Infiltrators capable of lying, as this can be tactical and make them more efficient in infiltration, even lie to their commanders who reprogram them. Units consisting Mimetic polyalloy, such as T-1000 and T-X, can impersonate a human and assume his or her identity.
