Original MatriX Script Part 29
He stares at the fullness of her lips.
NEO: I want to kiss you.
TRINITY: I want to kiss you too...
The PHONE begins to RING.
TRINITY: But I want it to be real.
She pulls herself away and gets into the booth when something catches Neo's eye and he looks to where the Old Man had been. She hears him SCREAM and sees Agent Smith emerge as if formed by congealing darkness, charging with a fistful of metal.
TANK: What the hell just happened?
TRINITY: An Agent! You have to send me back!
TANK: I can't!
INT. "EL" STATION (MATRIX) - DAY - GUN REPORT THUNDERS through the underground, both men BLASTING, moving at impossible speed. For a blinking moment we enter BULLET-TIME. Gun flash tongues curl from Neols gun, bullets float forward like a plane moving across the sky, cartridges cartwheel into space.
Agent Smith smiles.
AGENT SMITH: You're empty.
Neo pulls the TRIGGER. CLICK.
NEO: So are you.
The smile falls. Agent Smith yanks his TRIGGER. CLICK. Agent Smith's face warps with rage and he attacks, fist flying at furious speed, blows and counters, Neo retreating as -- A knife-hand opens his forearm, and a kick sends him slamming back against a steel column.
AGENT SMITH: You can't win.
NEO: I already have.
INT. HOVERCRAFT - Trinity watches Neo as his body jerks, mouth coughing blood, his life signs going wild.
TRINITY: Jesus, he's killing him!
INT. "EL" STATION (MATRIX) - DAY - Agent Smith grabs hold of him, lifting him into the air, hurling him against the curved wall of the train tunnel, where he falls inches from the electrified third-rail.
TRINITY: Send me back, Tank! Anywhere!
TANK: I'm looking, Trinity! I'm looking!
From the cockpit, an ALARM sounds. Morpheus hurries to the front console, typing, bringing up the radar. Trinity follows him.
TRINITY: What is it... oh no.
In every pipe surrounding them, they see the Extermination Unit.
INT. SEWER MAIN - The killing machine we saw in the History Program blister by us like tracer bullets shot down the throat of the abyss.
AGENT SMITH: Do you hear that, Mr. Anderson?
Agent Smith grabs Neo in a choke-hold, forcing him to look down the tracks, the train's headlight burning a hole in the darkness.
AGENT SMITH: That is the sound of inevitability.
Neo sees it coming and he starts to fight.
AGENT SMITH: It is the sound of your death.
There is another METAL SCREECH, MUCH LOUDER, closer, as Agent Smith tightens his hold. Neo is unable to breathe.
AGENT SMITH: Goodbye, Mr. Anderson.
The TRAIN ROARS at them, swallowing Agent Smith's words. The veins bulge in Neo's head, as he grits through the pain.
NEO: My name is Neo.
Impossibly, he hurls himself straight up, smashing Smith against the concrete ceiling of the tunnel. They fall as the sound and fury of the TRAIN EXPLODES INTO the station. Neo back-flips up off the tracks just as -- The train barrels over Agent Smith.
