Continuity mistake: In the bus scene on the Golden Gate bridge, right after the bus flips end-over-end, we see it sliding broadside from Pops' point of view through the hole in the police car windshield, at most a few hundred feet ahead. At this point, the bus falls over the side of the bridge, breaks apart, then catches and hangs there. In the ensuing wide angle shot, even though Pops was a mere block away and racing at top speed, his car is nowhere in sight. What's taking him so long? Did he take the scenic route? Perhaps stop for beverages? Meanwhile, as Kyle and Sara snap out of it, exchange some dialogue, and begin scrambling upward to safety with John Connor again in hot pursuit, a full minute passes before Pops finally rolls in to save the day. (01:28:35 - 01:29:15)

Question: Why did the old T-800 prevent his younger self from killing three punks and stealing their clothes? I mean, these punks were meaningless to it, so why did it save them?

Answer: The T-800 "Pops" was working with Sarah Connor, and they were trying to eliminate any Terminator sent back in time. The punks were incidental and the aim was not necessarily to save them, but Sarah probably also wanted to minimise the collateral deaths as much as possible by destroying the machines as soon as they emerged.
