I don't want to remember nothing. Nothing. You understand? [pause] And I want to be rich. You know, someone important, like an actor.


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: 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.

Security Guard: Can you please remove any metallic items on your person? Keys, loose changeā€¦ [Neo throws back his trench coat, revealing an arsenal of automatic weapons] Holy shit!

If you'd told us the truth, we would've told you to shove that red pill right up your ass!

Switch: Digital pimp, hard at work.

Can you hear me, Morpheus? I'm going to be honest with you: I hate this place. This zoo. This prison. This reality, whatever you want to call it. I can't stand it any longer. It's the smell- if there is such a thing. I feel... saturated by it. I can taste your stink and every time I do, I fear that I've somehow been infected by it. It's repulsive, isn't it? I must get out of here. I must get free and in this mind is the key, my key. Once Zion is destroyed there is no need for me to be here, do you understand? I need the codes. I have to get inside Zion and you have to tell me how. You're going to tell me or you're going to die.

Switch: Not like this, not like this.

Agent Brown: What were you doing?
Agent Jones: He doesn't know.
Agent Smith: Know what?

Tank: Believe it or not, you piece of shit - you're still gonna burn!

Agent Brown: He's gone.

It means buckle your seatbelt, Dorothy, 'cause Kansas is going bye-bye.

The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. When you're inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of people we're trying to save, but until we do, these people are still a part of that system and that makes them our enemy. You have to understand that most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system that they will fight to protect it. Were you listening to me, Neo? Or were you looking at the woman in the red dress?

You hear that, Mr. Anderson? That is the sound of inevitability. It is the sound of your death. Goodbye, Mr. Anderson.

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.
