Neo: I thought it wasn't real
Morpheus: Your mind makes it real
Neo: If you're killed in the matrix, you die here?
Morpheus: The body cannot live without the mind

Unfortunately, no one can be told what the Matrix is. You have to see it for yourself.

Morpheus

Throughout human history, we have been dependent on machines to survive. Fate, it seems, is not without a sense of irony.

Morpheus

[Neo tries a drink made by Dozer and winces]
Cypher: Good shit, huh? It's good for two things: degreasing engines and killing brain cells.

I'm trying to free your mind, Neo. But I can only show you the door. You're the one that has to walk through it.

Morpheus

Neo, sooner or later you're going to realize just as I did that there's a difference between knowing the path and walking the path.

Morpheus

Have you ever had a dream, Neo, that you were so sure was real? What if you were unable to wake from that dream? How would you know the difference between the dream world and the real world?

Morpheus

Welcome to the real world.

Morpheus

Cypher: All I do is what he tells me to do. If I had to choose between that and the Matrix, I'd choose the Matrix.
Trinity: The Matrix isn't real.
Cypher: I disagree, Trinity. I think that the Matrix can be more real than this world. All I do is pull a plug here, but there... you have to watch Apoc die.

Neo: What did she tell you?
Morpheus: That I would find the One.

Oracle: You're cuter than I thought. I can see why she likes you.
Neo: Who?
Oracle: Not too bright, though.

Agent Smith: You hear that Mr. Anderson?... That is the sound of inevitability... It is the sound of your death... Goodbye, Mr. Anderson...
Neo: My name... is Neo.
