  • The Connor's "new" last name is Baum in honor of the book author's last name
  • The nicknames Sarah jokingly calls Cameron are "Tin-Man" & "Tin-Miss"
  • Their former home was in Kansas
  • In "Goodbye to All That" Sarah and Cameron kidnap a young Bidell before the terminator kills him. As they that are protecting him he reads the "Wizard of Oz" for a book report. As the story darkens at the end of the book he becomes scared because he was almost killed.
In the beautifully written conclusion of the episode excerpts of the storie's conclusion are interwoven with the stopping and destoying of the terminaor by John and Derek.
  • In Mr. Fereson is Ill Today Sarah, Derek, Cameron and John stop Cromartie for good. After Agent Ellison asks "what's next" Sarah tells him "there's nothing else behind the curtain." Sarah alludes to herself as the Wizard of Oz, who, of course has the story named after.
  • They use a tormado to explain family problems
  • In Self Made man Cameron compares Myron Stark's killing of the junio Chandler an accident like the house falling on the Wicked Witch of the East. Both events occurred at their arrival and unintentionally killed people.
  • At the end of the Second Season John Connor goes to the future. He was already aware of what it would be like. He has grown up through his trials. He sees his old friends from his past life but they don't know him or his story: his Uncle Derek, his cyborg Cameron is the real person Alison, and even his father Kyle is clueless about who he has been.

  • Just like Dorothy going back home at the end of the Wizard of Oz.
