6 Upon which hospital did James Cameron base 'Pescadero', the hospital where Sarah was detained?
Answer: Atascadero State Hospital

Jim Cameron says that he visited Atascadero for research purposes, so that he could get a good idea about how to set the scenes at 'Pescadero'. He was particularly interested in the security measures (such as the perimeter fencing and the sally ports) and the hospital procedures (such as patient restraint). Atascadero (aka ASH) is an all-male maximum-security facility. ASH opened in 1954 and is a completely self-contained psychiatric hospital constructed within a security perimeter. It has a licensed capacity of 1001 beds and employs over 1800 staff. All of the hospitals listed in the question are situated in California. By the way, Camarillo is thought by some to have inspired the song 'Hotel California' by The Eagles. Patton State Hospital is based in San Bernardino (the same city where Sarah Connor's mum is scripted to have lived in the first film). The Lakeview Terrace Medical Centre was the location used to film the hospital scenes. This hospital had ceased to function due to seismic damage.

7 According to Sarah, on what date would 3 billion people lose their lives (Note that I have laid out dates in European way: DD.MM.YYYY)?
Answer: 29.08.1997

August 29th, 1997 is the date upon which the nuclear fire will hit the USA. August 4th, 1997 is the date when the 'Skynet' system goes on-line. February 28th, 1985 is John Connor's date of birth, and I made the August 29th, 2029 date up, although the Future War scenes are based on the year 2029 in this film, the same year that the Terminator and the T-1000 are sent back through time.
8 What is the last name of John's foster parents?
Answer: Voight

When the T-1000 looks at the police car's computer under John's profile, it shows their last name as Voight. The T-1000 locates their home but John is not there. He asks his foster parents, Todd and Janelle, for a picture of John. Later on, the T-1000 kills both Todd and Janelle.

15 Arnie's 'Terminator' arrives in the present first and enters a bar called The Corral. Whilst he is electronically scanning the crowd, we see alphanumeric readouts scroll across his field of vision. Can you tell me the 'Scan Mode' that the Terminator uses to assess the people in the bar?
Answer: 43894

This number scrolls up on the screen each time he assesses an individual in The Corral. He is attempting to identify someone with the same size clothing so that he can 'borrow' them for the rest of the film. Luckily the Hell's Angels were in -- I dread to think what he would have worn had he arrived on a Ladies' Night!
16 At what location is John when the T-1000 first locates him?
Answer: The Galleria

The T-1000 stops off and asks two girls if they have seen John. One mentions seeing John fifteen minutes prior and how she believes he says he is going to the Galleria. At the Galleria, the T-1000 asks two boys where John is and they point him in a direction. He later asks two girls if they know where John is. The next person he asks is John's friend, who lies by saying he has not seen him. Right as his friend tells John a cop is there looking for him, another man tells the T-1000 where John is. John sees the T-1000 and begins running.
