    Neo - Oracle conversation [General] - FrAnKiE - frankm@si.rr.com @ 01:20:01
    DO NOT READ IF YOU DIDNT SEE THE MATRIX RELOADED!

    Neo and kungfu guy are walking down the hallway of doors (the program of exits).

    Neo: Are you a programmer?

    Kungfu guy shakes his head as if to say no.

    Neo: Then what are you?

    Kungfu guy puts key into the lock and opens the door to the park.

    Kungfu guy: I protect that which matters most.

    Neo enter's the park.

    Oracle: Well, come on. I aint gonna bite'cha. Come around here and let me have a look at'cha. My goodness, look at you. (she takes her sunglasses off)

    You turned out all right, didn't you? How do you feel?

    Neo: I uhh...

    Oracle: (interrupting him) I know your not sleeping, we'll get to that. Why don't you come and have a sit this time?

    Neo: Maybe I'll stand.

    Oracle: Well suit yourself.

    ...Neo sits down next to her on the bench.

    Neo: I felt like sitting.

    Oracle: I know... So... Let's get the obvious stuff out of the way.

    Neo: Your not human, are you?

    Oracle: It's tough to get any more obvious than that.

    Neo: If I had to guess, I'd say you're a program from the machine world.

    Neo looks back at the kungfu guy.

    Camera cuts to kungfu guy.

    Neo: So is he.

    Oracle: So far, so good.

    Neo: But if thats true, that could mean you're a part of this system. Another kind of control.

    Oracle: Keep going.

    Neo: I suppose the most obvious question is, how can I trust you?

    Oracle: Bingo... It is a pickle, no doubt about it. Bad news is there's no way if you can really know whether I'm here to help you or not. So it's really

    up to you. Just have to make up your own damn mind. You can either except what I'm going to tell you, or reject it.

    She takes out a piece of candy and gesture's it towards Neo.

    Oracle: Candy?

    Neo: Do you already know if I'm going to take it?

    Oracle: Wouldn't be much of an oracle if I didn't.

    Neo: But if you already know, how can I make a choice?

    Oracle: Because you didn't come here to make the choice. You've already made it. You're here to try to understand why you made it.

    Neo takes the candy but does not eat it.

    Oracle: I thought you'd have figured that out by now.

    Neo: Why are you here?

    Oracle: Same reason... (she unwraps the candy) I love candy. (She eats the candy).

    Neo: But why help us?

    Oracle: We're all here to do what we're all here to do. I'm interested in one thing Neo, the future. And believe me, I know, the only way to get there is together.

    Neo: Are there other programs like you?

    Oracle: Oh well, not like me...but... look, see those birds? (camera cuts to birds on the ground) At some point, a program was written to govern them. A program was written to watch over the trees and the wind, sunrise and sunset. There are programs runnin all over the place. The ones doing their job, doing what they were ment to do, are invisible. You'd never even know they were here. But the other ones, well, you hear about them all the time.

    Neo: I've never heard of 'em.

    Oracle: Oh of course you have. Everytime you've heard someone say they saw a ghost or an angel. Every story you've ever heard about vampires, werewolves or aliens is the system assimilating some program that's doin somethin their not supposed to be doin.

    Neo: Programs hacking programs... why?

    Oracle: They have their reasons, but usually a program chooses exile when it faces deletion.

    Neo: Why would a program be deleted?

    Oracle: Maybe it breaks down. Maybe a better program is created to replace it, happens all the time. And when it does, a program can either chooses to hide here, or return to the source.

    Neo: The machine mainframe.

    Oracle: Yes. Where you must go. Where the path of the one ends... You've seen it, in your dreams, haven't you?... The door made of light... What happens when you go through the door?

    Neo: I see Trinity... And something happens. Something bad... she starts to fall... And then I wake up.

    Oracle: Do you see her die?

    Neo: No.

    Oracle: You have the sight
