Original MatriX Script Part 25
TRINITY: No. No way. Morpheus sacrificed himself so you could escape. There's no way you're going back in.
NEO: Morpheus did what he did because he believed that I'm something that I'm not.
NEO: I'm not the One, Trinity. The Oracle told me.
Trinity is stunned.
NEO: She said I had a gift but I still had a lot to learn. She told me maybe next life.
TRINITY: Did you tell Morpheus?
NEO: Why? It wouldn't mean anything. He'd still believe what he wanted to believe. But Morpheus is the one that matters. He's more important than me and we both know it.
He straps in.
NEO: I may not be what Morpheus thinks I am, but if I don't try to help him, then I'm not even what I think I am.
TRINITY: What are you?
NEO: His friend.
INT. PRESIDENTIAL SUITE (MATRIX) - DAY - Agent Smith sits casually across from Morpheus who is hunched over, his body leaking and twitching.
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've realized that you are not actually mammals.
The life signs continue their chaotic patterns.
AGENT SMITH: 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 andthe only way you can survive is to spread to another area.
He leans forward.
AGENT SMITH: There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus.
AGENT SMITH: Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet. You are a plague. And we are... the cure.
INT. MAIN DECK - Trinity and Neo hang motionless in the suspension unit. Tank is at the operations station.
TANK: Okay. Store's open. What do you need?
TRINITY (V.O.): Guns. Lots of guns.
TANK: Coming right up.
He loads the weapons disk.
INT. CONSTRUCT - Racks of weapons appear and Neo and Trinity arm themselves.
TRINITY: No one has ever done anything like this.
He snap cocks an Uzi.
NEO: That's why it's going to work.
INT. PRESIDENTIAL SUITE (MATRIX) - DAY - Agent Smith is again at the window.
AGENT SMITH: Why isn't the serum working?
AGENT BROWN: Perhaps we are asking the wrong questions.
AGENT JONES: Or he doesn't know.
AGENT SMITH: Of course he knows. He's resisting.
AGENT BROWN: How?
AGENT SMITH: I don't know. If I knew...
Agent Smith hides his knotting fist. He is becoming angry. It is something that isn't supposed to happen to agents.
AGENT SMITH: Leave me with him.
Agent Brown and Jones look at each other.
AGENT SMITH: Now!
INT. MAIN DECK - Tank sits down beside Morpheus whose face is ashen like someone near death. He takes hold of his hand.
TANK: Hold on, Morpheus. They're coming for you. They're coming.
EXT. NIKO HOTEL (MATRIX) - DAY - A dark wind blows.
AGENT SMITH: Can you hear me, Morpheus? I'm going to be honest with you.
He removes his earphone, letting it dangle over his shoulder.
