Agent: The best thing about being me... There are so many "me"s.
[All the doors open, lots of Smith clones step out]

- It is purpose that defines.
- Purpose that binds us.
- We are here because of you,
- Mr. Anderson.
- We're here to take from you what you tried to take from us: Purpose.
- What's happening to him?
- Don't know.
- Yes, that's it. It'll be over soon.

- You understand the situation,
- Captain Soren?
- Yes, ma'am.
- Thank you, captain.
- Is there another?
- Captain, I think we should volunteer.
- What? You have gone crazy.
- Listen--
- Shut your hole, Bane...
- ...before I put you in one.

- Here they come.
- Let's go, Morpheus.
- We won't make it.
- We have to try.
- Come on!
- Something's different.
- What?
- I can feel them.

- No doubt.
- But Tank and Dozer believed him.
- And I'll tell you what...
- ...after being on that ship and seeing Neo do the things he can do, I gotta say...
- ...I'm starting to believe him too.
- Be careful, Link.
- Please be careful.

Neo: Why am I here?
The: Your life is the sum of a remainder of an unbalanced equation inherent to the programming of the matrix. You are the eventuality of an anomaly, which despite my sincerest efforts I have been unable to eliminate from what is otherwise a harmony of mathematical precision. While it remains a burden assiduously avoided, it is not unexpected, and thus not beyond a measure of control. Which has led you, inexorably, here.
Neo: You haven't answered my question.
The: Quite right. Interesting. That was quicker than the others.

- He gave you this.
- He said you set him free.
- Is everything all right, sir?
- The meeting is over.
- Retreat to your exits.
- Agents are coming.
- Agents?
- Go.

- What about you?
- I just haven't been able to sleep much.
- It's a good sign.
- Of what?
- That you are in fact still human.
- Have you ever been to the engineering level?
- I love to walk there at night.
- It's quite amazing.
- Would you like to see it?
- Sure.

The: The function of the One is now to return to the source, allowing a temporary dissemination of the code you carry, reinserting the prime program. After which you will be required to select from the matrix 23 individuals, 16 female, 7 male, to rebuild Zion. Failure to comply with this process will result in a cataclysmic system crash killing everyone connected to the matrix, which coupled with the extermination of Zion will ultimately result in the extinction of the entire human race.
Neo: You won't let it happen, you can't. You need human beings to survive.
The: There are levels of survival we are prepared to accept.

- What's that, sir?
- To trust me.
- Yes, sir. I will, sir.
- I mean, I do, sir.
- I hope so.
- Repatch the main AC to the hard drives and stand by to broadcast.
- Yes, sir.

- You are here because Zion is about to be destroyed.
- Its every living inhabitant terminated, its entire existence eradicated.
- Bullshit.
- Denial is the most predictable of all human responses.
- But rest assured, this will be the sixth time we have destroyed it...
- ...and we have become exceedingly efficient at it.

Morpheus: I have dreamed a dream, but now that dream is gone from me.

The: It seems that every time we meet, I have nothing but bad news. I'm sorry about that, I surely am. But for what it's worth, you've made a believer out of me. Good luck, kiddo.

Link's Niece: Operator.
Neo: Link, where am I?
- You won't believe this, but you're way up in the mountains.
- Really?
- It'll take me a while to get an exit.
- Shit!
- What?
- The twins are after Morpheus and Trinity.
- They don't have a way out.
- Where are they?
- Middle of the city, 500 miles due south.

Merovingian: You see there is only one constant. One universal. It is the only real truth. Causality. Action, reaction. Cause and effect.

The: There are two doors. The door to your right leads to the Source and the salvation of Zion. The door to your left leads back to the Matrix, to her... and to the end of your species. As you adequately put, the problem is choice. But we already know what you are going to do, don't we? Already I can see the chain reaction: the chemical precursors that signal the onset of an emotion, designed specifically to overwhelm logic and reason. An emotion that is already blinding you to the simple and obvious truth: she is going to die and there is nothing you can do to stop it.

Commander: Dammit, Morpheus. Not everyone believes what you believe.
Morpheus: My beliefs do not require them to.

Morpheus: All of our lives, we have fought this war. Tonight I believe we can end it. Tonight is not an accident. There are no accidents. We have not come here by chance. I do not believe in chance. When I see three objectives, three captains, three ships. I do not see coincidence, I see providence. I see purpose. I believe it our fate to be here. It is our destiny. I believe this night holds for each and every one of us, the very meaning of our lives.

- My beliefs do not require them to.
- There's a gathering tonight. Everyone's talking. A lot of people are scared.
- No one remembers the last time so many ships were docked.
- Something big is happening, isn't it?
- Hey.
- We're not allowed to say anything, so stop asking.
- Goddamn, it's good to be home.

- Well, it looks like every floor is wired with explosives.
- Bad for us.
- Here we go.
- Yes. We are here to speak with the Merovingian.
- Well, of course.
- He has been expecting you.
- Follow me.

- The Keymaker is mine, and I see no reason why I should give him up.
- No reason at all.
- Where are you going?
- Please, ma chérie, I have told you.
- We are all victims of causality.
- I drank too much wine,
- I must take a piss.
- Cause and effect. Au revoir.
- Touch me and that hand will never touch anything again.

- Okay, you have some skill.
- Kill him.

- Neo!
- What happened?
- I don't know.
- It's the Hammer.

- We must go.
- Seems like every time we meet
- I got nothing but bad news.
- I'm sorry about that. I surely am.
- But for what it's worth...
- ...you've made a believer out of me.
- Good luck, kiddo.

Councillor: Down here, sometimes I think about all those people still plugged into the Matrix and when I look at these machines I... I can't help thinking that in a way... we are plugged into them.
Neo: But we control these machines; they don't control us.
Councillor: Of course not. How could they? The idea is pure nonsense. But... it does make one wonder... just... what is control?
Neo: If we wanted, we could shut these machines down.
Councillor: [Of] course. That's it. You hit it. That's control, isn't it? If we wanted we could smash them to bits. Although, if we did, we'd have to consider what would happen to our lights, our heat, our air...
Neo: So we need machines and they need us, is that your point, Councilor?
Councillor: No. No point. Old men like me don't bother with making points. There's no point.
Neo: Is that why there are no young men on the council?
Councillor: Good point.

Link's Niece: Operator.
- Get us out of here.
- Won't be easy.
- I know. We're inside the core network.
- The only exit I got near you is the Winslow overpass.
- Off the freeway.
- Yes, sir.
- Fine, we'll make it.
- I should-Oh, shit! Look out behind you!
- Incoming fire.
- Down!

- CONTROL: The Nebuchadnezzar is down.
- Bay Seven.
- Understood.

- Good.
- The Oracle has many enemies.
- I had to be sure.
- Of what?
- That you are the One.
- You could have just asked.
- No. You do not truly know someone...
- ...until you fight them.
- Come. She's waiting.

- What?
- Thank you, Captain Niobe.
- Commander Lock, you have your orders.
- This Council is hereby adjourned.
- Niobe, what are you doing?
- What I can.
- Why?
- Because some things never change, Jason...
- ...and some things do.

- If one fails...
- ...all fail.
- At midnight, there is a shift change in the security of both buildings.
Morpheus: At midnight, we will strike.
- GUARD: Hey!
- You count sheep at home.
- Why? I get paid to count them here.

- Neo, I had to.
- I know.
- The bullet is still inside.

- It is inevitable.
- Come on, get out of there.

Link: Trinity, we're talking less then 5 minutes here.
Trinity: In five minutes, I'll tear that whole goddamn building down.

The: Hello, Neo.
Neo: Who are you?
The: I am the Architect. I created the Matrix. I've been waiting for you. You have many questions, and although the process has altered your consciousness, you remain irrevocably human. Ergo, some of my answers you will understand, and some of them you will not. Concordantly, while your first question may be the most pertinent, you may or may not realize it is also the most irrelevant.

[after first meeting with The Merovingian]
Neo: Well, that didn't go so well.
Morpheus: Are you Certain the Oracle didn't say anything else?
Neo: Yes.
Trinity: Maybe we did something wrong.
Neo: Or didn't do something.
Morpheus: No, what happened, happened and couldn't have happened any other way.
Neo: How do you know?
Morpheus: We are still alive.

- Trinity.
- Get him out of here.
- Come on!
- Crush him.

The: Candy?
Neo: Do you already know if I'm going to take it?
The: Wouldn't be much of an Oracle if I didn't.

Twin: We are getting aggravated.
Twin: Yes, we are.

The: Humph. Hope, it is the quintessential human delusion, simultaneously the source of your greatest strength, and your greatest weakness.

- My goodness, look at you.
- You turned out all right, didn't you?
- How do you feel?
- I--
- I know you're not sleeping.
- We'll get to that.
- Why don't you come and have a sit this time.
- Maybe I'll stand.
- Well, suit yourself.

- How can the prophecy be true if the war isn't over?
- I'm sorry.
- I know it isn't easy to hear, but...
- ...I swear to you it's the truth.
- What are we gonna do?
- I don't know.
- Oh, no!

- Trinity...
- ...I know you can hear me.
- I'm not letting go.
- I can't.
- I love you too damn much.

- ...but the more I think about it, the more I think it's meant to be.
- You know, it's fate.
- You're the reason I'm here, Neo.
- I told you, you found me.
- I didn't find you.
- I know, but you got me out.
- You saved me.
- You saved yourself.

- I'm sorry.
Neo: Trinity.

- Yes.
- That's it.
- I envy you. But such a thing is not meant to last.
- Come with me.

- All right.
- But you have to make me believe
- I am her.
- All right.
- Terrible. Forget it.
- Wait.
- Okay.

- It was meant to be.
- Morpheus, that door will take you home.
- You will know which door.
- Hurry, Neo.
- Trinity, I got some serious activity headed your way.

Seraph: You seek the Oracle.
Neo: Who are you?
Seraph: I am Seraph. I can take you to her. But first, I must apologize.
Neo: For what?
Seraph: For this.
[fighting ensues]
Seraph: [fighting has stopped] Good.
Seraph: The Oracle has many enemies, I had to be sure.
Neo: Of what?
Seraph: That you were The One.
Neo: You could've just asked.
Seraph: No. You do not truly know someone until you fight them.

[Johnson blocks Neo's punch]
Neo: Hmm, upgrades.

Merovingian: Goddammit woman, you will be the end of me.

- You.
- Yes, me.
- Me, me, me.
- Me too.

Agent: [to Neo] Still using all the muscles except the one that matters?

Agent: But, as you well know, appearances can be deceiving, which brings me back to the reason why we're here. We're not here because we're free. We're here because we're not free. There is no escaping reason; no denying purpose. Because as we both know, without purpose, we would not exist.
[Several Agent Smith Clones walk in]
Agent: It is purpose that created us.
Agent: Purpose that connects us.
Agent: Purpose that pulls us.
Agent: That guides us.
Agent: That drives us.
Agent: It is purpose that defines us.
Agent: Purpose that binds us.
Agent: We are here because of you, Mr Anderson. We're here to take from you what you tried to take from us.
[Attempts to copy himself into Neo]
Agent: Purpose.

- Still using all the muscles except the one that matters.
- I want exactly what you want.
- I want everything.
- Would that include a bullet from this gun?
- Go ahead, shoot.
- The best thing about being me, there's so many me's.

- Are you thinking what I'm thinking?
- I am if you're thinking this elevator is too slow.
- How long do we charge the Neb?
- Twenty-four, maybe 30 hours.
- Some people go their entire lives without hearing news that good.

Merovingian: Choice is an illusion created between those with power and those without.

- Hope. It is the quintessential human delusion, simultaneously...
- ...the source of your greatest strength and your greatest weakness.
- If I were you, I would hope that we don't meet again.
- We won't.
- We got a serious situation, sir.
Morpheus: Oh, no.

- Good night, Zion.
- Sweet dreams.
- You all right?
- MAN: I'll make it.
- Did you see that agent?
- I've never seen anything like that.
- It doesn't matter.
- All that matters is this.
- You first.

- Oh, God.
- "Smith" will suffice.
- Thank you.
- My pleasure.

The: So, let's get the obvious stuff out of the way.
Neo: You're not human, are you?
The: It's tough to get any more obvious than that.

Morpheus: This is a war and we are soldiers. Death can come for us at any time, in any place.
[Scene switch to the Vigilant under attack]
Morpheus: . Now consider the alternative. What if I am right? What if the prophecy is true? What if tomorrow the war could be over? Isn't that worth fighting for? Isn't that worth dying for?

Morpheus: [Morpheus addresses the people of Zion] Zion, hear me! It is true, what many of you have heard. The machines have gathered an army and as I speak, that army is drawing nearer to our home.
[the Zion crowd becomes louder]
Morpheus: Believe me when I say we have a difficult time ahead of us. But if we are to be prepared for it, we must first shed our fear of it. I stand here, before you now, truthfully unafraid. Why? Because I believe something you do not? No, I stand here without fear because I remember. I remember that I am here not because of the path that lies before me but because of the path that lies behind me. I remember that for 100 years we have fought these machines. I remember that for 100 years they have sent their armies to destroy us, and after a century of war I remember that which matters most... We are still here! Today, let us send a message to that army. TOnight, let us shake this cave. Tonight, let us tremble these halls of earth, steel, and stone, let us be heard from red core to black sky. Tonight, let us make them remember, THIS IS ZION AND WE ARE NOT AFRAID!

The: [to Neo] We are all here to do what we are all here to do...

The: As I was saying, she stumbled upon a solution whereby nearly ninety-nine percent of the test subjects accepted the program provided they were given a choice - even if they were only aware of it at a near-unconscious level. While this solution worked, it was fundamentally flawed, creating the otherwise contradictory systemic anomaly, that, if left unchecked, might threaten the system itself. Ergo, those who refused the program, while a minority, would constitute an escalating probability of disaster.
Neo: This is about Zion.

- KEYMAKER: That is the length and breadth of the window.
- Only the One can open the door...
- ...and only during that window can the door be opened.
- How do you know all this?
- I know because I must know.
- It is my purpose.
- It's the reason I'm here, the same reason we're all here.

- What happened?
Link's Niece: I can't figure it out.
- Agents just came out of nowhere.
- Then the code got all weird.
- Encryption I've never seen.
- Is Neo okay?
- Okay? Shit, you should've seen him.
- Where is he now?
- He's doing his Superman thing.

Neo: Trinity, I know you can hear me. I'm not letting go. I can't. I love you too damn much.
Link: [Shocked with astonishment after Neo brought Trinity back to life] I can't take this.

- This is Control requesting immediate stand-down of arms at Gate Three.
- We have the Nebuchadnezzar on approach. Let's open her up.
- You are cleared through
- Gate Three to Bay Seven.
- Roger that, Control.
- Door's open, bed's made.
- Welcome home.
- No place like it.

- What if I am right?
- What if the prophecy is true?
- What if tomorrow the war could be over?
- Isn't that worth fighting for?
- Isn't that worth dying for?
- Time?
- Three minutes.
- Almost there.

- Tonight, let us shake this cave.
- Tonight, let us tremble these halls...
- ...of earth, steel and stone.
- Let us be heard from red core to black sky.
- Tonight, let us make them remember: This is Zion and we are not afraid!

Persephone: Where are you going?
Merovingian: Please, ma cherie. I have told you. We are all victims of causality. I drank too much wine, I must take a piss. Cause and effect.

Trinity: You always told me to stay off the freeway.
Morpheus: Yes, that's true.
Trinity: You said it was suicide.
Morpheus: Then let us hope that I was wrong.

The: Do you see her die?
Neo: No.
The: You have the sight now, Neo. You are looking at the world without time.
Neo: Then why can't I see what happens to her?
The: We can never see past the choices we don't understand.
Neo: Are you saying I have to choose whether Trinity lives or dies?
The: No, you've already made the choice. Now you have to understand it.
Neo: No. I can't do that. I won't.
The: Well, you have to.
Neo: Why?
The: Because you're the One.

- I have dreamed a dream...
- ...but now that dream has gone from me.

- ...creating fluctuations in even the most simplistic equations.
- You can't control me!
- I'm gonna smash you to bits!
- I'm gonna fucking kill you!
- You can't make me do anything.
- You old, white prick!
- Choice.
- The problem is choice.

Neo: But if you already know, how can I make a choice?
The: Because you didn't come here to make the choice, you've already made it. You're here to try to understand *why* you made it. I thought you'd have figured that out by now.

Trinity: Touch me and that hand will never touch anything again.

- Where are you going?
- Another way. Always another way.
- Close it, quick!
- Could we move along?
- Run!

- All right.
- What is it, Niobe?
- I can't help it, Morpheus. I can't help thinking, what if you're wrong?
- What if all this, the prophecy, everything, is bullshit?
- Then tomorrow we may all be dead.
- But how would that be different from any other day?

Neo: Are there other programs like you?
The: Oh, well, not like me. But... look, see those birds? At some point a program was written to govern them. A program was written to watch over the trees, and the wind, the sunrise, and sunset. There are programs running all over the place. The ones doing their job, doing what they were meant to do, are invisible. You'd never even know they were here. But the other ones, well, we hear about them all the time.
Neo: I've never heard of them.
The: Oh, of course you have. Every time you've heard someone say they saw a ghost, or an angel. Every story you've ever heard about vampires, werewolves, or aliens, is the system assimilating some program that's doing something they're not supposed to be doing.

- I can't take this.
- I guess this makes us even.

- Yes, sir. I do, sir. Winslow overpass.
- I'll be ready for you.
- Good man.
- You always told me to stay off the freeway.
- Yes, that's true.
- You said it was suicide.
- Then let us hope...
- ...that I was wrong.

- Let us find out where this goes.
- You two, get the Keymaker.
- That's a nice trick.
- I cannot go back.
- I'll handle them.
- Handle us? You'll handle us? You know, your predecessors had much more respect.

- Trinity....
- Don't be afraid.
- I can't lose you.
- You're not gonna lose me.
- You feel this?
- I'm never letting go.

Neo: I suppose the most obvious question is, how can I trust you?
The: Bingo. It is a pickle. No doubt about it. The bad news is there's no way if you can really know whether I'm here to help you or not, so it's really up to you. You just have to make up you on damned mind to either accept what I'm going to tell you, or reject it.

Agent: I killed you, Mr. Anderson. I watched you die... with a certain satisfaction, I might add. Then something happened. something that I knew was impossible, but it happened anyway. You destroyed me, Mr. Anderson. After that, I understood the rules, I knew what I was supposed to do, but I didn't. I couldn't. I was compelled to stay, compelled to disobey. And now, here I stand because of you, Mr. Anderson. Because of you, I'm no longer an Agent of this system. Because of you, I've changed. I'm unplugged. A new man, so to speak. Like you, apparently, free.
Neo: Congratulations.
Agent: Thank you.

Neo: Choice, the problem is choice.

- ...and let us give thanks for those that have been found...
- ...and who stand here beside us.
- Now I would like someone else to close this prayer...
- ...someone who hasn't spoken here in a long time...
- ...but who I believe has something to say that we all need to hear.
- I give you Morpheus.

- See you tomorrow.
- Oh, my God!
- I'm in.

- What are they doing?
- They're just out of EMP range.
- It's a bomb.
- We have to get out of here. Now.

- Hello.
- You seek the Oracle.
- Who are you?
- I am Seraph. I can take you to her, but first I must apologize.
- Apologize for what?
- For this.

- I need a download to hot-wire a motorcycle.
- No problem.
- One crash course on motorcycle--
- Wait.
- Cancel that.
- You are handy.
- Jump on.

- I remember you used to dance.
- I remember you were pretty good.
- There are some things in this world,
- Captain Niobe...
- ...that will never change.
Lock's Lieutenant: Niobe!
- Some things do change.

- Hiya, fellas.
- AGENT 1: It's him.
- The anomaly.
- Do we proceed?
- Yes.
- He is still--
- Only human.
- Hm. Upgrades.

Agent: You.
Agent: Yes, me.
[turns Thompson into another Smith]
Agent: Me... me... me...
Agent: Me too.

- My husband saved them because they're notoriously difficult to terminate.
- How many people keep silver bullets in their gun?
- You can either run and tell my husband what I have done...
- ...or you can stay there and die.
- He's in the ladies' room!
- Hurry.

Merovingian: I love French wine, like I love the French language. I have sampled every language, French is my favorite. Fantastic language. Especially to curse with. Nom de dieu de putain de bordel de merde de saloperie de connard d'enculé de ta mère. It's like wiping your arse with silk. I love it.

- Come on.
- Come on.
- Please.
- Kill them.
- They're in.
- I don't believe it.

The: You are here because Zion is about to be destroyed. Its every living inhabitant terminated, its entire existence eradicated.
Neo: Bullshit.
[the monitors respond the same]
The: Denial is the most predictable of all human responses. But, rest assured, this will be the sixth time we have destroyed it, and we have become exceedingly efficient at it.

- Operator.
- Link, it's Niobe.
- We've been sent to bring you in.
- I need to talk to Morpheus.
- Believe me, Niobe, he needs you.
- Where is he?
- Just follow the sirens.
- Repeat, they're approaching the--
- We have them now.
- The exile is the primary target.
