The Matrix (1999)
[Neo sees a black cat walk by them, and then a similar black cat walk by them just like the first one]
Neo: Whoa. Déjà vu.
[Everyone freezes right in their tracks]
Trinity: What did you just say?
Neo: Nothing. Just had a little déjà vu.
Trinity: What did you see?
Cypher: What happened?
Neo: A black cat went past us, and then another that looked just like it.
Trinity: How much like it? Was it the same cat?
Neo: It might have been. I'm not sure.
Morpheus: Switch! Apoc!
Neo: What is it?
Trinity: A déjà vu is usually a glitch in the Matrix. It happens when they change something.

[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.

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.

Cypher: I know what you're thinking, 'cause right now I'm thinking the same thing. Actually, I've been thinking it ever since I got here: Why oh why didn't I take the BLUE pill?

Morpheus: The pill you took is part of a trace program. It's designed to disrupt your input/output carrier signal so we can pinpoint your location.
Neo: What does that mean?
Cypher: It means fasten your seat belt Dorothy, 'cause Kansas is going bye-bye.

Cypher: Look into his eyes. Those big pretty eyes and tell me... Yes or no?
[looks at Neo, tears slightly visible in her eyes]
Trinity: Yes.
Cypher: No! I don't believe it!
Tank: Believe it or not, you piece of shit, you're still gonna burn!

Cypher: You know, I know this steak doesn't exist. I know that when I put it in my mouth, the Matrix is telling my brain that it is juicy and delicious. After nine years, you know what I realize?
[Takes a bite of steak]
Cypher: Ignorance is bliss.

Cypher: I'm tired, Trinity. Tired of this war, tired of fighting... I'm tired of the ship, being cold, eating the same goddamn goop everyday...

[first lines]
[phone rings]
Cypher: Yeah.
Trinity: Is everything in place?
Cypher: You weren't supposed to relieve me.
Trinity: I know, but I felt like taking a shift.
Cypher: You like him, don't you? You like watching him.
Trinity: Don't be ridiculous.
Cypher: We're gonna kill him. You understand that?
Trinity: Morpheus believes he is the one.
Cypher: Do you?
Trinity: It doesn't matter what I believe.
Cypher: You don't, do you?
Trinity: Did you hear that?
Cypher: Hear what?
Trinity: Are you sure this line is clean?
Cypher: Yeah, of course I'm sure.
Trinity: I better go.

Cypher: Neo. You scared the b'Jesus out of me.

Cypher: No. I don't believe it.
Tank: Believe it or not, you piece of shit, you're still gonna burn.

Cypher: All I see now is blonde, brunette, redhead.

Cypher: Jesus. What a mind-job.

[talking to the unconscious Morpheus]
Cypher: If you'd told us the truth, we would've told you to shove that red pill right up your ass.

[Cypher has betrayed the crew and is pulling their plugs one by one]
Cypher: By the way, if you have something terribly important to say to Switch, I'd suggest you say it now.
Trinity: Oh no, please don't...
Switch: Not like this. Not like this.
[Cypher pulls her plug]
Cypher: Too late.
Trinity: God damn you Cypher!
Cypher: Don't hate me Trinity... I'm just the messenger.

Cypher: [Is about to try to unplug Neo] If Morpheus was right, then there's no way I can pull this plug. I mean if Neo is the One, then there would have to be some kind of miracle to stop me. Right? I mean how can he be the One if he's dead?

Cypher: [referring to an alcoholic drink] Dozer makes it. It's good for two things, degreasing engines and killing brain cells.

Cypher: The image translators work for the construct program - but there's way too much information to decode the Matrix.
