Trinity: I know why you're here, Neo. I know what you've been doing... why you hardly sleep, why you live alone, and why night after night, you sit by your computer. You're looking for him. I know because I was once looking for the same thing. And when he found me, he told me I wasn't really looking for him. I was looking for an answer. It's the question, Neo. It's the question that drives us. It's the question that brought you here. You know the question, just as I did.
Morpheus: Unfortunately, no one can be told what the Matrix is. You have to see it for yourself.
Morpheus: Throughout human history, we have been dependent on machines to survive. Fate, it seems, is not without a sense of irony.
Agent Smith: We're willing to wipe the slate clean, give you a fresh start. All that we're asking in return is your cooperation in bringing a known terrorist to justice.
[Neo tries a drink made by Dozer and winces.]
Spoon boy: Do not try and bend the spoon. That's impossible. Instead... only try to realize the truth.
Agent Smith: I'd like to share a revelation that I've had during my time here. It came to me when I tried to classify your species. I realized that you're not actually mammals. Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment, but you humans do not. You move to an area, and you multiply, and multiply, until every natural resource is consumed. The only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet, you are a plague, and we are the cure.
Morpheus: 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.
Morpheus: You have the look of a man who accepts what he sees because he is expecting to wake up. Ironically, that's not far from the truth.
Morpheus: I'm trying to free your mind, Neo. But I can only show you the door. You're the one that has to walk through it.
Neo: Why do my eyes hurt?
Morpheus: There is a difference between knowing the path and walking the path.
Morpheus: Have you ever had a dream, Neo, that you were so sure was real? What if you were unable to wake from that dream? How would you know the difference between the dream world and the real world?
Oracle: I'd ask you to sit down, but, you're not going to anyway. And don't worry about the vase.
Oracle: You're cuter than I thought. I can see why she likes you.
Agent Smith: Do you hear that, Mr. Anderson? That is the sound of inevitability.
Switch: My way... or the highway.
Trinity: Dodge this.
Morpheus: This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill - the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill - you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.
Tank: Door on your left!
Cypher: Neo. You scared the b'Jesus out of me.
Cypher: No! I don't believe it!!
Neo: Okey dokey.. free my mind. Right, no problem, free my mind, free my mind, no problem, right...
Agent Smith: The great Morpheus. We meet at last.
Agent Smith: I'm going to enjoy watching you die, Mr. Anderson.
Morpheus: I've seen an agent punched through a concrete wall. Men have emptied entire clips at them and hit nothing but air, yet their strength and their speed are still based in a world that is built on rules. Because of that, they will never be as strong or as fast as you can be.
Neo: I used to eat there. Really good noodles.
Tank: Hey Mikey I think he likes it.
Cypher: All I see now is blonde, brunette, redhead.
Oracle: Do you know what that means?
[points to a banner]
Oracle: It means know thy self. I wanna tell you a little secret, being the one is just like being in love. No one needs to tell you you are in love, you just know it, through and through.
Trinity: Neo, I'm not afraid anymore. The Oracle told me that I would fall in love and that that man...that I loved would be the one. So you see, you can't be dead. You can't be...because I love you. You hear me? I love you.
Cypher: Jesus! What a mind-job!
Trinity: What's he doing?
Cypher: I know what you're thinking, 'cause right now I'm thinking the same thing. Actually, I've been thinking it ever since I got here: Why oh why didn't I take the BLUE pill?
Morpheus: The pill you took is part of a trace program. It's designed to disrupt your input/output carrier signal so we can pinpoint your location.
Morpheus: Stop trying to hit me and hit me!
Agent Smith: Never send a human to do a machine's job.
Neo: What are you trying to tell me? That I can dodge bullets?
Trinity: My name's Trinity.
Morpheus: The Matrix is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.
Tank: So what do you need? Besides a miracle.
Trinity: Neo... nobody has ever done this before.
Neo: I know you're out there. I can feel you now. I know that you're afraid... afraid of us. You're afraid of change. I don't know the future. I didn't come here to tell you how this is going to end. I came here to tell how it's going to begin. I'm going to hang up this phone, and then show these people what you don't want them to see. I'm going to show them a world without you. A world without rules or controls, borders or boundaries. A world where anything is possible. Where we go from there is a choice I leave to you.
Rhineheart: You have a problem with authority, Mr. Anderson.
Agent Smith: It seems that you've been living two lives. One life, you're Thomas A. Anderson, program writer for a respectable software company. You have a social security number, pay your taxes, and you... help your landlady carry out her 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.
Neo: I know kung fu.
Morpheus: How did I beat you?
Lieutenant: I think we can handle one little girl. I sent two units, they're bringing her down now.
Agent Smith: Tell me, Mr. Anderson, what good is a phone call when you are unable to speak?
Trinity: Please Neo, you have to trust me.
Morpheus: I imagine that right now you're feeling a bit like Alice, tumbling down the rabbit hole.
Morpheus: What is "real"? How do you define "real"?
Morpheus: Welcome to the desert of the real.
Neo: You ever have that feeling where you're not sure if you're awake or still dreaming?
Tank: Here you go, buddy; "Breakfast of Champions."
Neo: Mr. Wizard! Get me the hell out of here!
Agent Smith: 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.
Agent Smith: Did you know that the first Matrix was designed to be a perfect human world? Where none suffered, where everyone would be happy. It was a disaster. No one would accept the program. Entire crops were lost. Some believed we lacked the programming language to describe your perfect world. But I believe that, as a species, human beings define their reality through suffering and misery. The perfect world was a dream that your primitive cerebrum kept trying to wake up from. Which is why the Matrix was redesigned to this: the peak of your civilization.
Mouse: To deny our own impulses is to deny the very thing that makes us human.
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? [Takes a bite of steak] Ignorance is bliss.
Morpheus: You have to let it all go, Neo. Fear, doubt, and disbelief. Free your mind.
Cypher: I'm tired, Trinity. Tired of this war, tired of fighting... I'm tired of the ship, being cold, eating the same goddamn goop everyday...
Neo: Am I dead?
Neo: What are you doing?
[Opening lines. Phone rings.]
Agent Brown: She got out.
Choi: Hallelujah. You're my savior, man. My own personal Jesus Christ.
[Neo receives a cell phone in an overnight-mail envelope. As soon as he's holding it, it rings.]
