Agent Smith: Check him.
Agent Brown: [touches Neo] He's gone.
Agent Smith: Goodbye, Mr. Anderson.


Agent Smith: Do we have a deal, Mr. Reagan?
Cypher: You know, I know this steak doesn't exist. I know that when I put it in my mouth, the Matrix is telling my brain that it is juicy and delicious. After nine years, you know what I realize? Ignorance is bliss.
Agent Smith: Then we have a deal?
Cypher: I don't want to remember nothing. Nothing. You understand? And I want to be rich. You know, someone important, like an actor.
Agent Smith: Whatever you want, Mr. Reagan.

Agent Smith: Lieutenant.
Lieutenant: Oh, shit.
Agent Smith: Lieutenant, you were given specific orders.
Lieutenant: I'm just doing my job. You give me that "juris-my-dick-tion" crap, you can cram it up your ass.
Agent Smith: The orders were for your protection.
Lieutenant: I think we can handle one little girl. I sent two units. They're bringing her down now.
Agent Smith: No, Lieutenant, your men are already dead.

Agent Smith: Never send a human to do a machine's job.
Agent Brown: If, indeed, the insider has failed, they'll sever the connection as soon as possible. Unless...
Agent Jones: ...they're dead. In either case...
Agent Smith: ...we have no choice but to continue as planned. Deploy the sentinels. Immediately.

Agent Smith: The great Morpheus. We meet at last.
Morpheus: And you are?
Agent Smith: Uh, Smith. Agent Smith.
Morpheus: You all look the same to me.

Agent Smith: Why isn't the serum working?
Agent Brown: Perhaps we are asking the wrong questions.
Agent Smith: Leave him with me. Now.

Boy: Do not try to bend the spoon; that's impossible. Instead, only try to realize the truth.
Neo: What truth?
Boy: There is no spoon.
Neo: There is no spoon?
Boy: Then you will see, it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself.

Cypher: No. I don't believe it.
Tank: Believe it or not, you piece of shit - you're still gonna burn!

Cypher: Okay. I get my body back into a power plant, you insert me into the Matrix, I'll get you what you want.
Agent Smith: Access codes to the Zion mainframe.
Cypher: No, I told you, I don't know them. I can get you the man who does.
Agent Smith: Morpheus.

Morpheus: At last. Welcome, Neo. As you no doubt have guessed I am Morpheus.
Neo: It's an honor to meet you.
Morpheus: No, the honor is mine. Please, come. Sit. I imagine that right now you are feeling a bit like Alice. Tumbling down the rabbit hole? Hmm?
Neo: You could say that.
Morpheus: I can see it in your eyes. You have the look of a man who accepts what he sees because he's expecting to wake up. Ironically, this is not far from the truth. Do you believe in fate, Neo?
Neo: No.
Morpheus: Why not?
Neo: Because I don't like the idea that I'm not in control of my life.
Morpheus: I know exactly what you mean. Let me tell you why you're here. You're here because you know something. What you know you can't explain, but you feel it. You've felt it your entire life. That there's something wrong with the world, you don't know what it is, but it's there. Like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad. It is this feeling that has brought you to me. Do you know what I'm talking about?
Neo: The Matrix?
Morpheus: Do you want to know what it is?
[Neo nods]
Morpheus: The Matrix is everywhere. It is all around us. Even now, in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window or when you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work, when you go to church, when you pay your taxes. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.
Neo: What truth?
Morpheus: That you are a slave, Neo. Like everyone else you were born into bondage. Born into a prison that you cannot smell or taste or touch. A prison for your mind. Unfortunately, no one can be told what the Matrix is. You have to see it for yourself. This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. [opens hand, unveiling blue pill] You take the blue pill, the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. [opens hand, unveiling red pill] You take the red pill, you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes. [Speaks before Neo takes the Red Pill] Remember: all I'm offering is the truth. Nothing more.
[Neo takes the red pill after a few moments of thought, and washes it down with a mouthful of water from the glass next to him]
Morpheus: Follow me.

Neo: All these memories I have, these places I went.... None of it ever happened. What does that mean?
Trinity: That the Matrix cannot tell you who you are.

Neo: Am I dead?
Morpheus: Far from it.

Neo: Have you ever had that feeling...where you're not sure if you're awake or still dreaming?
Choi: Mmm... All the time. It's called mescaline... it's the only way to fly.

Neo: So is this the same Oracle who made the prophecy?
Morpheus: Yes, she is very old. She has been with us since the beginning.
Neo: Beginning?
Morpheus: Of the resistance.
Neo: And she knows what? Everything?
Morpheus: She would say she knows enough.
Neo: And she's never wrong?
Morpheus: [sighs] Try not to think in terms of right or wrong. She is a guide, Neo. She can help you to find the path.
Neo: She helped you?
Morpheus: Yes.
Neo: What did she tell you?
Morpheus: That I would find the One.

Neo: What are you doing?
Trinity: Going with you.
Neo: No you're not.
Trinity: ... No? Let me tell you what I believe. I believe Morpheus means more to me than he does to you; I believe if you are really serious about saving him, you are going to need my help; and, since I am the ranking officer on this ship, if you don't like it... I believe you can go to hell- because you aren't going anywhere else. Tank, load us up.
