The Matrix Reloaded (2003)
Merovingian: I love French wine, like I love the French language. I have sampled every language, French is my favorite. Fantastic language. Especially to curse with. Nom de dieu de putain de bordel de merde de saloperie de connard d'enculer ta mère. It's like wiping your arse with silk. I love it.

[after watching Neo stop hundreds of bullets in the air]
Merovingian: Okay, you have some skill.

Merovingian: Oh my god Persephone, how could you do this? You betrayed me.
[Stream of French]
Persephone: Cause and Effect, my love.
Merovingian: Cause? There is no cause for this. What cause?
Persephone: What cause? How about the lipstick you're still wearing?
Merovingian: Lipstick? Lipstick? Heh, what craziness are you talking about woman? There is no lipstick.
[checks his face]
Persephone: She wasn't kissing your face, my love.

Merovingian: Mark my words boy, Mark them well, I have survived your predecessors and I will survive you.

Merovingian: Goddammit woman, you will be the end of me.

Merovingian: And now I have some real business to attend to, so I will say adieu and goodbye...
[They all stand]
Neo: This isn't over.
Merovingian: Oh, yes it is. The Keymaker is mine and I see no reason to give him up... No reason at all...

Merovingian: Something to eat? Drink? Of course these things are contrivances, like so much here, for the sake of appearances.
Neo: No thankyou.
Merovingian: Yes, of course. Who has time? Who has time? But then if we never *take* time, how can we have time?

Merovingian: The question is, do *you* know why you are here?
Morpheus: We are looking for the Keymaker.
Merovingian: Oh, yes. It is true. The Keymaker. Of course. But this is not a reason. This is not a "why". The Keymaker himself - his very nature is a means. It is not an end. And so to look for him is to be looking for a means to do... what?

Merovingian: You see there is only one constant. One universal. It is the only real truth. Causality. Action, reaction. Cause and effect.

[Neo's hand drips a little blood after stopping a sword swing in full flow]
Merovingian: You see: he's just a man.

Merovingian: What is the reason? Soon the why and the reason are gone and all that matters is the feeling. This is the nature of the universe. We struggle against it, we fight to deny it; but it is of course a lie. Beneath our poised appearance we are completely out of control.

Persephone: Where are you going?
Merovingian: Please, ma cherie. I have told you. We are all victims of causality. I drank too much wine, I must take a piss. Cause and effect.

Merovingian: Choice is an illusion created between those with power and those without.

Neo: [to Trinity and Morpheus] Get him out of here, I'll handle them.
Merovingian: 'Handle us'? You'll *handle* us? You know, your predecessors had much more respect!


The Matrix Revolutions (2003)
Trinity: I don't have time for this shit.
[fight ensues and she puts a gun to the Merovingian's head]
Trinity: You wanna make a deal? How about this? You give me Neo or we all die, right here, right now.
Merovingian: Interesting deal. You are really ready to die for this man?
Trinity: [cocks gun] Believe it.
Persephone: She'll do it. If she has to, she'll kill every one of us. She's in love.
Merovingian: It is remarkable how similar the pattern of love is to the pattern of insanity.
Trinity: Time's up. What's it gonna be, Merv?
