“Hasta la vista, baby.”
> Movie: Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991)
> Starring: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton, Edward Furlong
> Writer(s): James Cameron, William Wisher

“Hasta la vista,” which means “until the (next) sighting” in Spanish but is used as a way of saying goodbye, with the addition of “baby” was already a famous term in pop culture. It was used in the 1987 song “Looking for new love” by Jody Watley and “Wild Thing” by Tone Loc. The line was immortalized in the second Terminator movie, when John Connor (Edward Furlong) teaches The Terminator (Arnold Schwarzenegger) how to say the slang and later again when she destroys T-1000, a shapeshifting android assassin.
