In "The Terminator", we see that the T-800 tells the trucker in training to "Get Out" of the truck. Was this James Cameron's attempt at being comical or did it have deeper meaning?
My assumption is that Terminators think, in general, that humans are all inherently evil and if a human was beside them, there is a chance that the mission would be compromised. The trucker in training would have no idea what was going to happen in the future and so, chances are, would have treated the hijacking like a criminal trying to use the vehicle to make a speedy getaway, similar to when a criminal holds a gun to an individual's head and tells them to "keep driving." It was not until "Terminator 2: Judgement Day" where John Connor was there to drive home the message of how it should be moral in not going for the death kill.
So are Terminators actually somewhat moral to anyone else other than their intended targets?
In "Terminator 2: Judgement Day", we see this again as the T-1000 asks the helicopter pilot to do this. In the second movie, it seems as if it would be more comical, relating back to the first movie when the T-800 says it.
