“What the… what the hell? Uh… just a little crash. I need a coffee. So you’ve said. Maybe you should go. Sure. Jude, no. Stop. Jude. I’m sorry about this. Jude… hi. Uh, we both come here. Hey.” — Neo

“What? Yeah. Sure. I thought you quit. Oh. Maybe I can make this easy for you. I know Binary is over budget. What do you mean? Good. No. Yeah. What? Really? Yeah. Yeah.” — Neo

“What was I feeling? I felt either I’m having a mental breakdown again or I’m living inside a computer-generated reality that has imprisoned me… again. No. Yeah. Yeah.” — Neo

“Thanks. Hi, Jude, I’m Tiffany. Mom loved Audrey Hepburn. Hi, Thomas. Everyone calls me ‘Tiff.’ Have we met? Brandon! This is my husband, Chad. Right. Sorry. Come on, kids. Let’s move out.”

Morpheus

“No, Lieutenant, your men are already dead.”

“Kill her. You first. Who are you? Where did you come from? What’s a Modal? I know what I am. Just like I know my job is to hunt down and destroy synthients. Like you. And yet.. here we are. No one was ever in the key shop, so I started looking. What? You mean Thomas Anderson’s? I searched everywhere. He doesn’t exist. Where? Okay. Something like that happened to me. I saw this pattern… and it was everywhere. We can’t see it, but we’re all trapped inside these strange, repeating loops. Somehow I saw it in the mirror. Just a flicker, but it was like you said. And suddenly I understood. For the first time, I felt real purpose. I knew who I was and what I had to do. I am… Morpheus. And I have to find Neo. You call this a choice? What point? Truth. The Lafayette. One of the four back doors leads there. Oh. Whoa, what’s happening? Ouch. Ah. Hey. I’ve never worn different glasses before. It’s gotta be… Agent White.”

Agent Smith

“‘Billions of people just living out their lives… oblivious.’ I always loved that line. You wrote that one, yeah? Every time I stand here, I m mean, O-M-G. It’s so perfect, it’s gotta be fake. Right? Have a seat. Smoke? I quit calling it a habit. Now it’s just a guilty pleasure. This is not about Binary, Tom. It’s bigger than that. This is about our future, which is a sticky subject, given our past. How’s the therapy? Any… episodes? That’s terrific. Look, Tom, I know we’ve always had our differences. What did you say about first meeting? We had all the chemistry of an FBI interrogation. But look at this place. We did this. Together. Now what? Things have changed. The market’s tough. I’m sure you can understand why our beloved parent company, Warner Bros., has decided to make a sequel to the trilogy. They informed they’re gonna do it with or without us. Oh, they can. And they made it clear they’ll kill our contract if we don’t cooperate. I know you said the story was over for you, but that’s the thing about stories. They never really end, do they? We’re still telling the same stories we’ve always told, just with different names, different faces and I have to say I’m kind of excited. After all these years, to be going back to where it all started. Back to the Matrix. I’ve spoken to Marketing… Tom? Are you all right?”

Bugs

“Seq, I’m in. You were right. The skylight was a window pane. Weird. It’s some weird king of Modal. It feels really familiar. I’m gonna check it out. A quick peek can’t hurt.”

“Seq, you with me? Your projection’s breaking up. Switch to audio. I know, I know. But something is happening here. Something important. Oh, fuck. We know what happens next. She kicks their ass. Now she makes a call. And then… we know this story. This is how it all began. This is where he began. I don’t know. But I’m going to find out.”

“So deja vu and yet it’s obviously all wrong. I don’t know. Maybe this isn’t the story we think it is. Shit. Uh… you all carry on. As you were. I’m just gonna… see myself out. Oh, Seq!”

“Why did you save me? Okay. My name is Bugs. As in ‘Bunny.’ And tech that listens. Do you know this is a Modal? It’s a simulation used to evolve programs. Do you understand that you are… digital sentience? The other agents don’t know about this room? How’d you find it? More you looked, the more you found. Story of my life. I feel like I know this room. Holy shit. This is his apartment. He stopped being Thomas a long time ago, but maybe you know him by his real name. Neo. You do. Oh, okay. Uh… I can’t believe this, after all these years. You see, most people think that Neo is dead. But I know he’s not. Because I’ve seen him. It’s not something I can explain easily, but… but the moment he looked at me, I felt something… unlock my mind. This is not the real world. Who are you? What do you have to do? Morpheus. Okay. Okay. Oh, my God! I have to get out of here. I need to figure out who built this Modal. Okay, come with me. You have to be ready to leave. You have to be really ready. And if you’re not, if you think that this is where you belong… oh, honestly, when somebody offered me these things, I went off on binary conceptions of the world and said there was no way I was swallowing some symbolic reduction of my life. And the woman with the pills laughed ’cause I was missing the point. The choice is an illusion. You already know what you have to do. Okay. There’s an old building with a skylight and lots of stairs. Don’t fight it. Keep breathing. Extraction works pretty much the same for humans and programs. Okay. Yeah, looks good. Which door? Okay. Go! Seq! Can you hear me? Can you get us to the window pane?”


The Analyst, The Matrix Resurrections, HBO Max, Village Roadshow Pictures, NPV Entertainment, Silver Pictures, Warner Bros., Neil Patrick Harris

The Analyst

“What were you feeling at that point? Not much of a choice. Maybe it’s not as binary as that. Maybe there are other ways to understand what happened. Thomas, you are a suicide survivor gifted with a powerful imagination. Those facts have combined to create dangerous fictions in your life. Yesterday, you walked into a meeting and he ambushed you, demanding you make a game you said you would never make. This attack effectively took away your choice. His violence triggered you and your mind fought back. You did to him what he was doing to you. We’ve talked about the value of adaptive anger in healing trauma. Far from suggesting a repeat of your initial breakdown, I believe this episode demonstrates healthy self-protection. And more importantly, I remember how hard it was for you to share something like this. Which tells me how far we’ve come. Do you need a refill on your prescription?”

Sequoia

“Captain. I’ve got serious interference. Looks like old code. Drop a pin. I’ll signal for a backup. Bugs? If the general finds out we’ve been fishing… did you hear that? Shit. I think our signal was traced. Bugs, this feels like a trap. Bugs!”

“This old code keeps crashing. Bugs, this is a direct violation of the general’s protocols. Then she runs for her life. You’re thinking this Modal is a loop? Or a treadmill? Some sort of sequencer evolving a program to do what?”

“Why use old code to mirror something new? If that’s supposed to be Trinity, that’s not what happens. Bugs, you have to get out of here. It’s gotta be a trap. Bugs! I thought I lost you. Bugs! Bugs! He’s an agent! That window! Go hard!”

Game Designer 1

“Something wrong? He lost something.”

“Sorry. Uh, it’s the boss.”

Game Designer 2

“Morning, Bobbi. Morning, dude. What a beautiful day to be alive. Am I right? Problemo? Is this old Matrix code? A little Modal experiment. For Binary? Coffee. Yes, stat! I’m buying.”

“I’m not trying to blow smoke up your ass, but the first time I played the trilogy, I was shook. The paradox between free will and destiny. Are we all just algorithms doing what we’re supposed to do or can we escape our programming? Genius, inside the context of the game, BT dubs. Hey, did I tell you it took over my life? Yeah. I failed the seventh grade. Your game almost ruined me. Yet here we are. You tell me, Mr. Anderson, is it free will or destiny? Oh, yeah. There she is. Total f-ing MILF. Daggers. Look, I’m sorry. I’m a geek. I was raised by machines. No, please. I… I promise, best self. Best self. You ever talk to her? Tell you what. For all you’ve done for me, let me do this for you.”

“Excuse me. Excuse me. Hi. Um… I know this is all a bit extamporaneous. I’m Jude Gallagher. I work for a game company called Deus Machina. Tiffany. Wow. Didn’t see that coming. Oh, and this is my very good friend, Thomas Anderson. He is a bona fide famous person and considered by most to be the greatest game designer of our generation. Just talk to her.”

Trinity’s husband

“Babe! What’s going on? We’re gonna be late. Nice to meet you. Babe, we gotta get Callie to practice.”

Trinity’s kid 1

“Can I have your morning bun? Can I have one bite?”

Trinity’s kid 2

“Hey! Are you trying to ball my mom or what?”

SWAT Officer

“Freeze! Do not move! We will shoot! Very slowly, raise your hands.”

Lieutenant

“Here we go. Hey, where are you going? I think we can handle one little girl. You’re wasting your time! My men are bringing her down now.”

Agent 1

“You were warned, Lieutenant.”

“Agent Smith?”

Trinity Modal

“The line was traced. Are there any agents? God damn it. All right.”
