Neo: What are you trying to tell me? That I can dodge bullets?
Morpheus: No, Neo. I'm trying to tell you that when you're ready, you won't have to.

Neo: ...I'm not the One.
Oracle: Sorry, kid. You've got the gift, but it looks like you're waiting for something.

Oracle: I'd ask you to sit down, but you're not going to anyway. And don't worry about the vase.
Neo: What vase?
[Neo turns around sharply, hitting a vase with his elbow, knocking it to the floor, where it crashes]

[referring to the soup]
Mouse: Do you know what it really reminds me of? Tasty Wheat. Did you ever eat Tasty Wheat?
Switch: No- but technically, neither did you.
Mouse: That's exactly my point! Exactly! Because you have to wonder now: how do the machines really know what Tasty Wheat tasted like, huh? Maybe they got it wrong. Maybe what I think Tasty Wheat tasted like actually tasted like uh.... oatmeal or uh.... or tuna fish. That makes you wonder about a lot of things. You take chicken for example. Maybe they couldn't figure out what to make chicken taste like, which is why chicken tastes like everything! And maybe they couldn't figure out-
Apoc: Shut up, Mouse.
Dozer: It's a single-celled protein combined with synthetic aminos, vitamins, and minerals. Everything the body needs.
Mouse: It doesn't have "everything the body needs"...

[After having the probe taken out of him]: Jesus Christ, that thing is real!?

[Referring to the Lady in red, which he created] She doesn't talk very much, but if you'd like to meet her, I can arrange a much more personalized meeting.

All I do is what he tells me to do. If I have to choose between that and the Matrix, I choose the Matrix.

And tell me, Mr. Anderson, what good is a phone call if you're unable to speak?

As you can see, we've had our eye on you for some time now, Mr. Anderson. It seems that you've been living two lives. In one life, you're Thomas A. Anderson, program writer for a respectable software company. You have a Social Security number, you pay your taxes, and... you help your landlady carry out the garbage. The other life is lived in computers, where you go by the hacker alias Neo, and are guilty of virtually every computer crime we have a law for. One of these lives has a future, and one of them does not. I'm going to be as forthcoming as I can be, Mr. Anderson. You're here because we need your help. We know that you've been contacted by a certain individual: A man who calls himself Morpheus. Now, whatever you think you know about this man is irrelevant. He is considered by many authorities to be the most dangerous man alive. My colleagues believe that I'm wasting my time with you, but I believe you wish to do the right thing. We're willing to wipe the slate clean. Give you a fresh start. And all that we're asking in return is your cooperation in bringing a known terrorist to justice.
