Matrix Reloaded Transcript Part 2
Neo: What is it between them?
Trinity: Morpheus and Lock? Niobe.
Neo: Captain Niobe?
Trinity: She used to be with Morpheus. Now she's with Lock.
Neo: What happened?
Trinity: Morpheus went to the Oracle. After that everything changed.
Neo: Yeah, she can do that.
Neo: Oh, no.
Trinity: How does he always know?
Neo: Doesn't he have anything better to do?
Trinity: You know what they say about the life you save.
Neo: I didn't save his life.
Kid: Hiya, Neo! Trinity, Link. It's great to have you back!
Neo: Thanks. It's good to be back.
Kid: Can I carry that for you, Neo?
Neo: No, I can carry my own bag.
Trinity: I'm fine.
Link: You can carry these.
Kid: Yeah, sure, Link. Hey, you know, next year I'm old enough to join a crew. I've been thinking a lot about it and I've made my decision.
Link: Let me guess.
Kid: I want to join the Nebuchadnezzar. I know Morpheus hasn't filled the other crew positions except for you, Link. I'm sure he has his reasons, but the more I think about it, the more I think it's meant to be. You know, it's fate. I mean, you're the reason I'm here, Neo.
Neo: I told you, Kid, you found me, I didn't find you.
Kid: I know, but you got me out! You saved me!
Neo: You saved yourself.
Morpheus: Commander Lock.
Lock: I've spoken to the other captains, and I wanted to offer you the chance to explain your actions.
Morpheus: I wasn't aware that my actions required any explanation.
Lock: You were given a direct order to return to Zion.
Morpheus: I did.
Lock: But you asked for one ship to remain behind.
Morpheus: I would have stayed, but I needed to recharge my ship.
Lock: So you admit to a direct contravention of your duty.
Morpheus: Commander, we need a presence inside the Matrix to await contact from the Oracle.
Lock: I don't want to hear that shit! I don't care about Oracles or prophecies or Messiahs. I care about one thing: stopping that army from destroying this city, and to do that I need soldiers to obey my orders.
Morpheus: With all due respect, Commander, there is only one way to save our city.
Lock: God dammit, Morpheus! Not everyone believes what you believe!
Morpheus: My beliefs do not require them to.
Kid: There's a Gathering tonight. Everyone's talking, a lot of people are scared. No one can remember the last time so many ships were docked. Something's happening, isn't it? Something big?
Link: Hey. We're not allowed to say anything, so stop asking. Goddamn, it's good to be home.
Lock: I'm going to recommend to the Council that you be removed from duty.
Morpheus: That is, of course, your prerogative, Commander.
Lock: If it were up to me, Captain, you wouldn't set foot on a ship for the rest of your life.
Morpheus: Then I am grateful that it is not up to you.
Lock: Councillor Hamann.
Councillor Hamann: Commander. Captain.
Councillor Hamann: Council's asked me to speak tonight, at the temple gathering. The presence of the fleet and the persistence of rumours must be addressed. The people must be told what is happening.
Lock: Of course, councillor. But might I advise a level of discretion concerning specific details. We do not wish to start a panic.
Councillor Hamann: Quite right. A panic is not what anyone wants. What about you, Captain, what would you advise?
Morpheus: The truth. No one will panic. Because there is nothing to fear. That army will never reach the gates of Zion.
Councillor Hamann: What makes you so sure?
Morpheus: Consider what we have seen, Councillor. Consider that in the past 6 months we have freed more minds than in 6 years. This attack is an act of desperation. I believe very soon the prophecy will be fulfilled and this war will end.
Councillor Hamann: I hope you're right, Captain.
Morpheus: I do not believe it to be a matter of hope, Councillor. It is simply a matter of time.
Link: My stop. See you soon, hopefully not too soon. Let's go, Kid. These two got things to do.
Neo: Are you thinking what I'm thinking?
Trinity: I am if you're thinking this elevator's too damn slow.
Neo: How long to recharge the Neb?
Trinity: 24, maybe 30 hours.
Neo: Some people go their entire lives without hearing news that good.
Old Woman at Zion: Neo, please. I have a son, Jacob, aboard the Gnosis. Please, watch over him.
Neo: I'll try.
Another Old Woman at Zion: I have a daughter on the Icarus.
Neo: No, wait.
Trinity: It's all right. They need you.
Neo: I need you.
Trinity: I know. There's time.
Link: Where's my puss... Hey!
Link's Niece and Nephew: Uncle Link!
Link: God! Oh my God, you're so huge, you should be picking me up!
Link's Niece and Nephew: No!
Link's Niece and Nephew: Okay!
Link: Okay? All right. Now, we're gonna have to work together here, okay? One, two, three, lift! Oh, my God! What are you feedin' these two?
Cas: Come on, kids! It's time to go.
Link: Hey, Cas.
Cas: Hey. Good to have you home, Link.
Link: Good to be home.
Cas: You be careful with her, huh?
Zee: Don't worry about me, he's the one that's gonna get it.
Cas: Out the door! Both of you, march!
Link: I'm gonna get what?
Zee: Every ship out there has been home two, even three times more than the Nebuchadnezzar.
Link: Come on, Zee! I thought we were past this!
Zee: We'll get past this when you start operating another ship.
Link: I can't do that!
Link: You know why.
Zee: If Dozer knew how I felt, he wouldn't have asked you to do this.
Link: Maybe. But it's too late now. I made a promise, and some promises can't be unmade.
Zee: It's not fair.
Link: Nobody said it was gonna be. You think Cas thinks it's fair that I'm here and Dozer's not?
Zee: I lost two brothers to that ship, Link. Afraid of it. Afraid it's gonna take you too.
Link: It won't.
Zee: How can you say that to me?
Link: Because of Morpheus, because of what he's told me. He said that this is it. That it will be over soon.
Zee: Link, Morpheus is crazy.
Link: No doubt, but Tank and Dozer believed him, and I'll tell you what - soon after being on that ship and seeing Neo do the things he can do, I gotta say - I'm starting to believe him too.
Zee: Be careful, Link. Please be careful.
Kid: They started yet?
Priestess: Only Councillor Hamann's opening prayer.
Councillor Hamann: Tonight, let us honour these men and women. These are our soldiers, our warriors. These are our husbands and wives, our brothers and sisters, our children. Let us remember those that have been lost. 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.
