Morpheus: You're a hell of a pilot.
Niobe: Some things in this world never change.
Morpheus: But some things do?
Niobe: [sighs] Luckily... some things do.

Morpheus: You saw the Oracle? What did she tell you?
Niobe: Same thing she always does: exactly what I needed to hear.

Neo: It's been an honor, sir.
Morpheus: No. The honor is still mine.

I don't know what he can do to save us. But I do know that as long as there is a single breath left in his body he will not give up and neither can we.

Morpheus

Morpheus: You've never believed in The One.
Niobe: I still don't.
Morpheus: Then why are you doing this?
Niobe: [re: Neo] I believe in him.

Niobe: Neo...
Morpheus: He fights for us...

Niobe: I remember. I remember when you used to dance. I remember you were... pretty good.
Morpheus: There are some things in this world, Captain Niobe, that will never change.
Commander Lock: Niobe.
Morpheus: Some things do change.

Morpheus: And does the Commander have a plan for dealing with two hundred and fifty *thousand* Sentinels?
Niobe: A strategy is still being formulated.
Morpheus: I'm sure it is.

A Sentinel for every man, woman, and child in Zion. That sounds *exactly* like the thinking of a machine to me.

Morpheus: This is a war and we are soldiers. Death can come for us at any time, in any place.
[Scene switch to the Vigilant under attack]
Morpheus: . Now consider the alternative. What if I am right? What if the prophecy is true? What if tomorrow the war could be over? Isn't that worth fighting for? Isn't that worth dying for?

[after first meeting with The Merovingian]
Neo: Well, that didn't go so well.
Morpheus: Are you Certain the Oracle didn't say anything else?
Neo: Yes.
Trinity: Maybe we did something wrong.
Neo: Or didn't do something.
Morpheus: No, what happened, happened and couldn't have happened any other way.
Neo: How do you know?
Morpheus: We are still alive.

Agent Smith: I want everything.
Morpheus: Would that include a bullet from this gun?
