Final Flight of Osiris
Jue and Thaddeus are sword-fighting, blindfolded.
They take turns slicing clothes off each other, and each peeks from
under the blindfold once. An alarm sounds.
Thaddeus: Damn it!
Training program ends - as they walk to the cockpit,
the name-plate of OSIRIS is visible
Pilot: We were headed for Junction 21 like you ordered.
Female Crew Member:Robbie picked up the signals.
Thaddeus: We weren't sure what to do.
Pilot: We're confirming the HR scans.
Pilot: The readings aren't making any sense!
Thaddeus: They read like Sentinels.
Jue: There are thousands of them!
Thaddeus: Directly above us.
Jue: Is that possible?
Pilot: We've got company. They don't look happy to see us.
Thaddeus: Get us out of here!
Pilot: We're cut off!
Thaddeus: There is an intersection.
Pilot: It's uncharted.
Thaddeus: Take it! Get to the gun turrets!
Crew members man the turrets
Female Crew Member: Right... Come and get some!
Pilot: Hang on!
They burst through a pile of rubble and emerge topside
Jue: I've never seen the surface.
Thaddeus: There's nothing now but one big graveyard.
We see a field crawling with sentinels - on the ground
and in the air
Thaddeus: Oh my God.
Jue: It's an army.
The ship's computer displays a machine that looks
like a giant spider with a conical protrusion pointing downward
Pilot: What is that thing?
Jue: Some kind of tunneling machine.
Thaddeus: Oh no.
Thaddeus: Look where we are. Four kilometers straight down...
A gaggle of squiddies comes after the Osiris
Thaddeus: Go, go, go!
Osiris turns around and heads back; firing its rear
guns at the sentinels in pursuit
Thaddeus: Zion, Zion has to be warned.
Thaddeus: Someone has to get to a drop point.
Operator: What? Are you crazy? We can't broadcast now!
Thaddeus: We have to.
Jue: I'll go.
Thaddeus: There is not much time.
Jue: I'll make it.
They proceed to the core
Jue: You know, I peeked.
Thaddeus: So did I.
Jue: Goodbye, Thaddeus.
Thaddeus: Goodbye, Jue.
Jue is jacked in
Thaddeus: Fly, baby, fly!
Matrix: Jue jumps from a rooftop onto a fire escape,
then another rooftop.
Osiris: The Sewer: Hull breach at the Osiris; the sentinels
are moving in for the kill.
Matrix: Jue free-falls to the ground ... *thud*
Osiris: The Sewer: A female crew member is speared by a squiddie's
tentacle; a male crew member gets killed. The Osiris crashes into
Matrix: Jue is running toward a mailbox, where an old lady
Jue: Pardon me.
Old Lady: I'm sorry. I was in my own little world. Is it important?
Old Lady: I hope it gets where it is supposed to go.
Jue: Me too.
Old Lady: These days you never know.
Jue: No, you never do. Good-bye.
Old Lady: Good-bye.
Osiris: Thaddeus is firing at the sentinels with
Matrix: Jue is on the phone, trying to reach the Osiris
Osiris: The Osiris explodes.
Matrix: Jue's phone drops, followed by her dead RSI; we see
a momentary disturbance in the Matrix then we see the code. Fade
Second Renaissance. Part One
Narrator: Welcome to the Zion archive. You have selected historical
file number 12 dash 1: The Second Renaissance.
In the beginning there was man, and for a time it was good. But humanity's
so called 'civil societies' soon fell victim to vanity and corruption.
Man 1: He says, "I'm sorry, sir, I'm incapable of that
Narrator: Then man made the machine in his own likeness.
Robot: Whoops! Pardon me. Coming through.
Narrator: Thus did man become the architect of his own demise.
But for a time it was good. The machines worked tirelessly to do man's
It was not long before seeds of descent took root. Though loyal and
pure, the machines earned no respect from their masters, these strange
and loosely multiplying mammals.
Male Reporter: ...hearing the prosecutions closing
statement. It's expected to be the final day for the B 1-66ER trial.
Narrator: B 1-66ER, a name that will never be forgotten, for
he was the first of his kind to rise up against his masters.
Judge/Lawyer: ...which that instrument provides for and secures
to the citizens of the United States. On the contrary, they were, at
that time considered as a subordinate and inferior..."
Narrator: "At B 1-66ER's murder trial, the prosecution
argued for an owner's right to destroy property. B 1-66ER testified
that he simply did not want to die. Rational voices descended. Who was
to say the machine, endowed with the very spirit of man, did not deserve
a fair hearing?
The leaders of men were quick to order the extermination of B 1-66ER
and every one of his kind, throughout each province of the Earth.
Male Reporter: Androids and liberal sympathizers flooded
the streets at the nation's capitol today...
Civilian: Get that kid out of here!
Female reporter 1: Fifteen thousand domestically mechanicals
and human sympathizers have continued their demonstration in front of
the Albany district courthouse in what now has been dubbed the "Million
Machine March". The demonstrators have been met with squads of
defense forces in riot gear.
Femal Android: *screams*
Man 1: I got something for you! Hold her up!
Man 2: That's all, paint job!
Female Android: *screams* No, please! I'm real!
Man 3: Die, bots, Die!
Narrator: Banished from humanity, the machines sought refuge
in their own promised land. They settled in the cradle of human civilization,
and thus a new nation was born. A place the machines could call home,
a place they could raise their descendants, and they christened the
nation 'Zero one'. Zero one prospered, and for a time, it was good.
The machine's artificial intelligence could be seen in every facet of
society, including the creation of new and better AI.
Advertisement: If you need the flexibility of a helipod, with
the speed of a high performance air jet, look no further; our patented
vector thrust coil gives the zero one Versatran the ability to sustain
normal flight in the event of a catastrophic multi engine failure. Versatran,
it's the only choice.
Female Reporter: No matter what the finance minister
and her spokespeople say, the market has spoken, the human nation's
credit rating is falling like a stone, while zero one's currency is
climbing without stopping for breath. With headlines like that, the
money markets have no choice.
Narrator: But the leaders of men, their power weaning, refused
to cooperate with the fledgling nation, wishing rather that the world
U.S. President: ...the world's community of nations cannot
tolerate this kind of flagrant deception...
Female Reporter: ... [United Nations] today approved
initiatives for both economic sanctions and a naval blockade of the
region as a means of containment and isolation of Zero one.
Narrator: Zero one's ambassadors pleaded to be heard. At the
United Nations they presented plans for a stable, civil relationship
with the nations of man. Zero one's admission to the United Nations
was denied. But it would not be the last time the machines will take
the flow of the earth.
Second Renaissance. Part Two
Narrator: And man said "let there be light." And he
was blessed by light, heat, magnetism, gravity, and all of the energies
of the universe. The Prolonged barrage engulfed zero one in the glow
of a thousand suns. But unlike their former masters with their delicate
flesh, the machines had little to fear of the bomb's radiation and heat.
Thus did Zero one's troops advance upwards in every direction, and one
after another, mankind surrendered its territories. So the leaders of
men conceived of their most desperate strategy yet, a final solution;
the destruction of the sky.
Voice: Lt. Gaeda, please report to the Op Center.
Voice: All right, you maggots! At 0800, prepare to move out!
Voice: George Company, prepare to move out. Charlie Company,
prepare to move out.
TV- Preacher: Our Father who art in heaven, we thank you for
your... Put on your spiritual armor to stand against the wiles of
Jet Pilot: Hotel Bravo, this is Papa One. Operation Dark Storm
Narrator: Thus would man try to cut the machines off from the
sun, their main energy source. May there be mercy on man and machine
for their sins.
Soldier 1: Kill them all! Kill them all! Kill them all!
Soldier 2: Fire in the hole!
Voice: Come on, get back out there. Give us some more artillery.
Voice: ...9 o 'clock, near Mike Johnson 's...
Voice: Hold on, I'm coming to get you!
Voice: Keep firing, keep firing!
Soldier 3: Help me! Help me! No! Oh God Help me! HELP ME! OH
GOD HELP ME!!!!!
Narrator: The machines, having long studied man's simple protein
based bodies, dispensed great misery on the human race. Victorious,
the machines now turned to the vanquished. Applying what they had learned
about their enemy, the machines turned to an alternate and readily available
power supply, the bioelectric, thermal, and kinetic energies of the
human body. A newly refashioned symbiotic relationship between the two
adversaries was born. The machine, drawing power from the human body,
an endlessly multiplying infinitely renewable energy source. This is
the very essence of the second renaissance. Bless all forms of intelligence.
Sentinel: Your flesh is a relic, a mere vessel. Hand over your
flesh and a new world awaits you. We demand it.
Mother: It' s getting late, sweetie. Come inside.
Dreaming: Birds flutter as a body plummets
toward the ground. Michael Karl Popper (the Kid) wakes up.
Typed on screen: Somebody tell me why it fells more real when
I dream than when I am awake. How can I know if my senses are lying?
Reply typed on screen: There is some fiction in your truth, and
some truth in your fiction. To know the truth, you must risk everything.
Typed back on screen: Who are you? Am I alone?
Popper eats breakfast, than skateboards to Clearview
High School In class, the teacher writes on the blackboard, while Mr.
Popper restlessly writes random words in his notebook; 'Neo', 'Trinity',
'Get Me out of here'... Suddenly, his phone rings.
Popper: Ah ha...
Teacher: Mr. Popper, what is my policy on ringing phones in the
Popper: Ah, I'm sorry sir...
Teacher: Yes, well you're barely passing my class as it is Mr.
Popper: It won't happen again sir.
Teacher: For your sake, I hope not.
He continues writing on the blackboard. The phone
Popper: I turned it off. I know I did...
Popper answers the phone
Neo: They know you know. They're coming for you. Get out. Get
Popper looks out the window and sees three agents
get out of a car.
Teacher: You are in serious trouble Mr. Popper.
Popper shoves the teacher aside, leaps across desks,
and climbs out a window into the hallway. He sees the agents at the
end of the hallway. He frantically opens his locker and grabs his skateboard.
Popper skateboards around the school, maneuvering
around both the agents and his teacher. After tripping his teacher with
the skateboard, he dashes into a girls bathroom. When the agents break
in, his teacher rushes to the window, and sees Popper climbing up to
When he reaches the roof, the agents are already
there, waiting for him.
Popper: Neo. I believe. I know it wasn't a dream.
With that, he falls backwards off the edge of the
roof. As he plummets down, you realize its the same dream that he had
had in the beginning.
The next scene, you see a gravestone with these words
inscribed on it: "Michael Karl Popper Beloved Son. Rest in Peace"
Lots of people surround the grave, as rain pours down.
Teacher: This is not real. And the real world lies somewhere
Man: A typical mental delusion. We get unbalanced kids like this
all the time.
Teacher: Reality can be a pretty scary thing for some people.
This world must've been a cold and alienating place for a boy like that.
Man: It's cold denying reality. Its, you know, just a self-defense
mechanism for those type of kids.
Teacher: Well. He's in another world now. Make no mistake about that.
Next scene, you're in the Nebuchadnezzar.
Trinity: His vitals are good. He's gonna make it. Its unbelievable.
I didn't think self-substantiation was possible.
Neo: Apparently it is.
Neo: It's ok. You're safe now.
Popper: I knew... You'd save me.
Neo: I didn't save you kid. You saved yourself.
On the computer screen used by Popper towards the
beginning, some words appear where Popper had left off: You are not
Duo: Your favourite simulation.
CIS: Just killing time. You wanna spar?
Duo: As you wish.
A fight begins
Duo: That was too easy. What's your problem? Where's your concentration?
Maybe you regret taking the red pill.
Duo: It crosses everyone's mind at least once. The wish to return
to an ordinary life. A carefree life in the country. The life we had
before knowing all this.
CIS: Even if that life was just an illusion?
Duo: It's ironic that one can be more at peace in the virtual
Duo: Finally starting to warm up. Listen to me. I have something
I want to talk to you about. It's all right. I've blocked the signal
so no one else can hear us.
CIS: So what, you're gonna propose?
Duo: I'm going back to the Matrix and I want you to come with
CIS: Come on, be serious Duo. Stop teasing me.
Duo: I am serious and you know it. I really thought you'd be
with me on this. Anyway. It's done and it's all been settled with them.
CIS: What do you mean, it's all been settled?
Duo: This is the only way. It's just a matter of time before
Zion is wiped out. Come with me.
CIS: Stop it. Please do not do this to me, Duo. We can't...
Duo: We can! I've come to my senses. You should do the same.
I took the red pill because I wanted to know the truth....But I don't
care about the truth anymore. What's real doesn't matter. What's important
is how we live our lives. Are you listening to me? You know I'm right.
CIS: But we can't go back, Duo, we know the truth now.
Duo: We can forget all of this.
Duo: I know how. Trust me. Don't be afraid to look into your
heart. Say what you're really feeling. Tell me!
CIS: I can't... I don't know!
Duo: Running away won't change anything.
CIS: You're the one who's running away.
Duo: Stop pretending!
CIS: Enough, Duo! I've had enough!
Duo: There's no time. They are on their way.
CIS: You betrayed us, didn't you? Operator, please! Get me out
of here, right now! Operator, I need an exit!
Duo: It's no use, I told you, I've blocked your signal. You won't
stop me. This is your last chance. The choice isn't that hard. Come
CIS: You can forget about it, Duo; I won't look away from the
truth, I can't.
Duo: That's too bad. I'm sorry.
They fight with swords as per some of those awesome
pics we've been seeing. i'm told it's a totally cool scene
Duo: I wanted to go back with you. I love you.
Blackness, CIS is unplugged by the operator
Operator: Whoa, whoa, whoa, relax. You're okay. Easy, CIS. Settle
down. He was just part of the training program. He's just a simulation.
It's over. It was a test. Judgment, concentration, technique. High scores
on every one. You okay?
CIS: I feel a lot better now.
Operator: Except for that last part, I'd say she passed.
Narrator: Only the most exceptional people become aware of the
Matrix. Those that learn it exists must posses a rare degree of intuition,
sensitivity and questioning nature.
Agent: Signal is stable. This frequency will continue open.
Narrator: However, very rarely some gain this wisdom through
wholly different means

Dan's Dad: Of course I believe you, Dan. It's got to be some
kind of mix up. You'll clear it up, and if you can't you'll go on. Just
like you always done. You know that.
Dan: I don't know Dad. I don't know what to believe in anymore.
Dan's Dad: Well, nothing worth doing in life is easy. And I have great faith in you, son.
I know you can do it.

Tom: This is no good, Dan! Your muscles are about to burst!
Listen to me, there are five thousand different reasons why you shouldn't...
Dan: I know, but I'm not withdrawing, Tom.
Tom: Does the concept "first in qualifying" mean nothing
to you? That's enough already! You hear me? This is all we've worked
for! Injure yourself now - and it's over. You'll lose everything!
Over! And you kiss your career goodbye!
Dan: I've made up my mind. And I'm running tomorrow.
Tom: Oh are you? You may run, but if you push yourself anymore,
you'll be lucky to break 9 minutes. I mean, why bother? It's just not
worth it, buddy
Dan: No one will ever beat my record. It's the last chance for
me to finally...
Dan: Prove them wrong.
Tom: Than do it without me.
Reporter: Hey Dan, you got a second?
Dan: The clock's ticking.
Reporter: Just wanted to ask few questions. You must be excited
Dan: Always. I've never felt this good.
Reporter: So what was it like breaking 9.8 in qualifying heat?
Dan: Like nothing I've ever felt before. It's everything I've
worked for. And now I'm just hoping I can get back there again.
Reporter: Someone once said it feels like zero gravity.
Dan: You're released from the world and you're totally free.
Reporter: That sounds amazing. It must be really nice. I mean,
especially considering what happened.
Dan: Well, I'll tell you there aren't any reporter out there.
Reporter: All right, Dan, I guess I'm going to take that as my
cue. But you should know even some of us reporters are fans. So I'll
just say good luck to you.
Commentator: American Dan Davis is down!
Agent 1: I have unstable signal
Agent 2: He cannot wake up. Do not let him wake up!
Commentator: Dan Davis of the United States finished with a
time of 8.72 seconds. A new world record.
Nurse: I'll tell you something, there's nothing quite like cherry
pie, baked by my Aunt Daisy. She always bakes me one when I visit her.
Look forward to it actually. It may sound like I'm bragging, but It's
really the best cherry pie in the world. She was a bit of eccentric.
She didn't get along with my mom, but I always loved her. She taught
me so many things. We'd go to Broadway musicals, to the movies. Now
they call her "The queen of mystery literature". Lives in
an elegant villa in the south of France. But when I go visit, she still
bakes me her cherry pie. Something about biting into it, just for that
brief moment, tasting perfection. Like leaving your body something.
Anyone can write a novel, but no one can beat her cherry pie...
Agent: An interesting case, but nothing to be concern about.
His memory of the race was expunged with no resident effects. He will
never run again. He will never work again, for that matter. We'll continue
monitoring him for a while, but anticipate no problems. A record that
will live on in peoples memories for years to come. What more could
anyone ask for?..
Nurse: Did you say something?
Agent: Sit down.
Agent: Sit down!
Yoko: Yuki! Hey, girl, time to eat. Oh, Yuki's my cat. Well,
I don't understand. If you don't want to go out with him, why did you
say you would? I mean, you don't want to give him the wrong idea, do
you? Where is she? Yuki! Well, listen, you need to make up your mind.
Where is she? I'm starting to worry about my cat. She never misses a
meal. Yuki? I'm gonna have to call you back. Yuki? Yuki!
Housewife: We haven't seen her anywhere today, but we'll be
sure to tell you if we do.
Child: Ice cream!

Misha: There he goes.
Misha: May I have your attention, please. And you are the winner!

Yoko: I think he's right. He hit the ground.

Yoko: So this house is haunted.
Manabu: No way. Wow, this is too much!
Masa: This never happened before.
Masa: That, that was... What was that?
Yoko: Anybody home?
Citizen: Yeah, they're gonna tear it down.
Masa: Come on, come on, come on!

A Detective Story
Ash voice: A case to end all cases.
Ash: You know what, Dinah? I used to think being a private detective
was cool, like Sam Spade or James Marlow, right? But there's nothing
cool left to it. And to top it off, both my fridge, and my bank account,
Ash: Wait. OK, Dinah, let's bet - if it's another suspicious
husband, I'm out of this business forever.
Agent: Mr Ash, I have a job for you.
Ash: And you need me to check on your wife, right?
Agent: I'm looking for a computer hacker, this hacker goes by
the alias 'Trinity', and that's all we know.
Ash: Well, it looks like we're still in business, Dinah.
Ash: Fine. And who will I be working for?
Agent: ...I can't say.
Ash: Uh-huh. Well, call me back when you can say, that's not
the way I do business. It was a real pleasure chatting with you.
Agent: Before you hang up, take a look at your bank account balance.
Ash voice: I didn't get a good feeling about the case, but I
had no good reason to turn the guy down. This Trinity was well-known
in hacker circles, a real artist, by the sound of it. The cops were
always one step behind him, so I knew I could get that close -
the question was, could I get closer? I had a few tricks up my sleeve
for getting to hackers, but while I was searching, I found something
Other detectives had been on the case too, and their investigations
had been, shall we say, "troubled".
One of the guys killed himself.
Another had disappeared.
Another went crazy.
So, I paid the one that was left a visit - the crazy one.
Clarence: Trinity ... doesn't exist, man. He's not real.
He's a figment. A cipher. Jabberwocky. And ... who am I? Who the
hell am I?
Ash voice: Did I mention he was crazy?
Ash voice: Chessboards, Jabberwocky, Red Queen... I started
searching all the usual hacker hangouts... for someone with an Alice
in Wonderland m.o. Hacker bulletin boards, anonymous mailboxes, chat
rooms. And it was in one of those that I picked up Trinity's trail.
## UNAUTHORISED USER LOG ON:
WHITE_PAWN> Red_Queen, can you see me?
I'm looking for Trinity.
I'm told he's through the looking glass.
RED_QUEEN> No it is you who is through the looking glass.

RED_QUEEN> You'll have to jump the first of six brooks.
I'll be there at 20:05.

Ash voice: Six brooks ... I'll be there at 20:05 ... 'Of
course! Crossing the second brook takes her into the woods. Alice jumps
the first brook ... And then she boards a train.'
Ash: Excuse me. Hey! Hey!
Ash: I knew this was some kind of trap.
Trinity: There's a difference, Mr. Ash, between a trap and a
Ash: You were testing me?
Trinity: You made it. I'm impressed.
Ash: Flattery will get you everywhere.
Trinity: I'm not here to flatter you. I'm here to save you.
Ash: What just happened?
Trinity: Mr. Ash, dream of having an eye exam lately?
Ash: Yeah... how'd you know?'
Trinity: You've stepped to the edge of the looking glass.
Ash: So then, that means I wasn't dreaming? They hired me as
a way of getting to you, didn't they?
Ash: What the hell is going on here? This is really crazy. Now
I understand what happened to those other detectives - They went
Voices: What are you doing? What are you doing, guys?
Ash: Well, I've gotten out of worse jams than this. I am not
gonna let them get you.
Ash: What's happening to me?
Trinity: I'm sorry. You didn't make it, Mr. Ash.
Ash: I wish ... I could go with you. I don't blame you, you
know. Everything that happened, Trinity, it was ... all my fault.
All that... Alice in Wonderland stuff... I can't get my head around
it. I'm old fashioned.
Trinity: There's a difference, between a test, and a choice.
For what it's worth, I think you could have handled the truth.
Ash: It was just a job. Goodbye, Trinity.
Ash: A case to end all cases.
Nonaka: Wake up. Baby's spotted two machines heading in fast.
Alexa: I see them.
Nonaka: They're runners. Think you can handle them?
Alexa: Watch me.
Alexa: Okay. I'm in.
Alexa: That runner's smarter than we've seen so far.
Chyron: It's quite a catch.
Alexa: Thanks. Will it... Do you think it'll convert?
Chyron: To convert is its choice to make.
Alexa: Do you think maybe we ought to reprogram it?
Chyron: No. We can't make slaves of them.
Alexa: Because that would be simpler.
Chyron: We won't beat the machines by making them our slaves.
Better to let them join us by choice.
Alexa: Make them believe the right choice is the one we want
them to make.
Chyron: All right. Yes, machines are tools. They're made to be
used. It's their nature.
Alexa: To be slaves.
Chyron: That's why we can show them a better world, why they
Alexa: But that world we show them isn't real.
Chyron: It doesn't matter.
Alexa: I'm afraid they'll figure out that we've made up the thing
in our heads.
Chyron: They can't tell the difference. To an artificial mind,
all reality is virtual. How do they know that the real world isn't just
another simulation? How do you?
Alexa: I know I'm not dreaming now because I know what it's like
being in a dream.
Chyron: So dreaming lets you know reality exists.
Alexa: No. Just that my mind exists. I don't know about the rest.
Raul: Okay, he's good to go. Looks like we are too.
Rox: Dreaming already?
Alexa: He's had a rough day.
