View Full Version : Block 24 - Guns. Lots of guns.

Smith continues to rant at Morpheus about how much humans stink. (Literally.) He hates the Matrix and is desperate to be free of it, which will only happen when Zion is destroyed. He demands the access codes.

Meanwhile, Neo and Trinity are gearing up with "lots of guns" to enter the Matrix. Trinity says no one's ever done anything like this before; Neo insists that that's why it's going to work.

What follows is the most preposterously violent scene I think I've ever seen in a movie. Neo and Trinity massacre everyone on the ground floor of the building where Morpheus is being held. (The only explanation I can think of for killing all these innocent people is to prevent the Agents from using their bodies... you'd think they would have clarified that in dialogue.) Why they do this with ordinary guns rather than lasers or something, when they could easily create them, is left as an exercise for the viewer. Why their guns run out so fast is another exercise. Have I mentioned I hate this scene? Anyway, once everyone's dead they head for the elevator, which is probably a good place to cut off this block.

Synopses here (http://www.hackvan.com/pub/stig/scripture/matrix/28-virus-to-be-cured.txt) and here (http://www.hackvan.com/pub/stig/scripture/matrix/29-lobby-shooting-spree.txt) -- such as they are. These scenes are mostly action, not dialogue; as a result, I have no idea how many fiver scenes we want here. We'll learn by experimentation.

Neo: (walking casually through the lobby as bullets whiz by him) I see the Agents have been hiring their security from the Stormtrooper Academy.

Neo: This is the biggest wardrobe I've ever seen.
Trinity: When it's 2:00 where the shirts are, it's 5:00 where the pants are.
Neo: What about the Sou'Westers?
Trinity: 5:30.

This only makes sense if you a) know that Newfoundland is half an hour ahead of the rest of the Maritimes (just to be different), and b) recognise the Sou'Wester as a distinctly Newfie article of clothing.

Smith: I don't like it here, can I have the access codes?
Morpheus: Um, I'm thinking no!
Smith: Aren't you supposed to be dazrd?
Morpheus: Shh! That's only when the other agents are around!



Neo and Trinity: Die! Diediediediediediedie!
A bunch of SWAT guys: Super GAK!

Agent Smith: This place stinks
Morpheus: Oops, I farted

Neo: We need guns, lots of guns *Whoosh*
Trinity: oOo a bazooka
Neo: Warn me before you fire that thing

or

Neo: We need guns, lots of guns *Whoosh*
Trinity: We need a plan, lots of plans
Tank: Sorry, all out.

Neo: Ok, this lobby is dull. Let's Redecorate!
Trinity: What an explosive idea!

Security Cops: GAK!
Neo: That was easy, too easy.
Computer: Level 1 complete
Neo: How many levels are there?
Trinity: 100, but don't worry, I have a cheatcode.
*Tougher guards run in*
Lead Guard: FREEZE!
Computer: Level 2 Begin
BAM! BAM! BANG! GAK!
BOOM!
Neo: The elevator is now out of service

or

Security Cops: GAK!
Computer: Level 1 complete
Neo: 1 level down and im out of ammo already
Trinity: Who needs guns when you can kick them where it hurts
Guard: FREEZE!
Trinity: FREEZE THIS!
Neo: Ouch, that's gotta hurt

Neo: I thought you brought that bazooka?
Trinity: I couldn't get it through security
Neo: That sucks

(Zeke: Don't ever watch Equilibrium. It's a good movie, but I doubt it'd be to your taste. :) )

Smith: I need the codes to Zion!
Morpheus: Why?
Smith: Can't get past the second boss.
Morpheus: Ever tried the Drill Gun?
Smith: Now there's an idea...

Neo: Alright, two Micro-Uzis, two MP5Ks, a few Beretta 92Fs, a pair of Scorpion machinepistols...
Trinity: Why so many guns?
Neo: The "reload" key on my keyboard is stuck.

Neo: I'd like a Morpheus To Go, please.
Guard: Sorry, we're out of bagels.
Neo: But your ad campaign...
Guard: False advertising. Whatcha gonna do, kill us all?

(Neo and Trinity clear the room at ludicrous speed.)

SECURITY GUARD #1: Man, what a sweet gig. Iíve been here for years and the most we had to deal with was a miss-delivered pizza.
SECURITY GUARD #2: Yeah, we smacked him around good for that.
SECURITY GUARD #1: Sure did. Itís been a nice job, but Iím finally retiring tomorrow. Just thank God everyday I made it through and my kids are-GAK!

AGENT SMITH: Human beings are a virus. And we are the Viagra.
MORPHEUS: What good does that do?
AGENT SMITH: Well it turns Bob Dole into a dirty old man for starters...

TANK: What do you need?
NEO: Lightsabers. Lots of lightsabers.
TRINITY: Sweet deal! I've always wanted to use one of these-
GEORGE LUCAS: Copyright infringement alert! Hayden attack!
HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN: *sobs*
GEORGE LUCAS: Can't you do anything aside from cry?
NEO: Nevermind, lets just go with guns.

AGENT SMITH: I'm going to ask you nicely, this time. Give me the key to the Zion mainframe.
MORPHEUS: Go jam it up your non-existent posterior.
AGENT SMITH: Sigh. Ok, lets try a different tactic. You ever listen to K Billy's Sounds of the Seventies?
RADIO: Yes Iím stuck in the middle with you . . . Stuck in the middle with youÖ

Heheheh.



Smith: Look, would you two just leave us alone so I can rant at Morpheus about how much I hate this place?
Brown and Jones: Eh?
Smith: Er, I mean, go fetch the Comfy Chair.
Brown: GASP! Use the Comfy Chair before using the Cushions? We've never done it that way before!
Smith: Good idea. Fetch both. That ought to give me enough time.




(This next one is meant as a follow-up to the end of my first suggestion in the previous block)

Smith: *Sniff* You don't understand, Morpheus. You CAN'T understand what it's like to work in this miserable dead-end job, with no respect, no decent pay or vacation time, not even a coffee mug with the company's logo to call your own. Nothing but a bunch of smelly humans scurrying around mindlessly like so many microbes. It stinks. And I want out. But early retirement isn't an option for me while there's still work to be done.
(and so on...)

Morpheus: Not the PIE!
Agent Smith: Yes, the PIE!

Agent Brown: Or perhaps the soft cushions?
Agent Smith: Bring me the comfy chair, 2 soft cushions, and the PIE!

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay! FBC is back, in style! Awright! :D Thanks so much, Zeke :)
Have been quiet over the last week thanks to mounting schoolwork and starting rehearsals as a Gilbert and Sullivan chorrister (yay me!). So it's about time I chip in:

1st Guard: Hey, what're you-- GAK!
2nd Guard: GAK!
Other Guards: GAK GAK GAKGAKGAKGAKGAKGAKKITY-GAK!-GAK!
Voiceover: MULTIKILL! NEO is on a RAMPAGE!

Neo: Whoa! That shoot-out ruled!
Trinity: Yeah, good job. If we hadn't taken them all out so quickly, they might have gone Agent on us or something.
Neo: They might have wha--? Umm, yeah, exactly. Self-protection, right?

NAHTMMM

Morpheus: Morpheus says to let Morpheus go free.
Agent Smith: Heheheh. Your follow-the-leader mind tricks won't work on *me*.
Morpheus: Fine, whatever. Just don't whine about how humans stink.
Agent Smith: If you insist.
Morpheus: Ha! I didn't say "Morpheus says"!
Agent Smith: GAH! I can't believe I fell for that!




(Smith suddenly caring about "winning" is a bit nonsensical, but it could be fixed depending on which of his lines people would most want to keep ;))

If possible, I think it'd be best to actually skip the "guns, lots of guns" scene (see my post in the previous block). As for here, I don't have a particular preference for the Agent part, but for the shootout I like Standback's

1st Guard: Hey, what're you-- GAK!
2nd Guard: GAK!
Other Guards: GAK GAK GAKGAKGAKGAKGAKGAKKITY-GAK!-GAK!

Hrm. Hrm hrm hrm hrm.

Guns: Skip this one. Especially in light of the "I believe we can bring him back" scene agreed on.

Virus: I still haven't seen a version of this that I like, so I'll take a stab at it:

Smith: Humans suck. You love pain and live through destruction. But if you give me the codes it'll do us all a favor. Follow?
Morpheus: Ever heard of "survival instinct"?
Smith: Ever heard of "Barney the Dinosaur"?
Morpheus: Uh-oh.

Violence: I can go for the "Whatcha gonna do, kill us all?" block. :)

My favorites are
Smith: I need the codes to Zion!
Morpheus: Why?
Smith: Can't get past the second boss.
Morpheus: Ever tried the Drill Gun?
Smith: Now there's an idea...
(which would go well with the Block 25 we seem to be happy with)


Neo: I'd like a Morpheus To Go, please.
Guard: Sorry, we're out of bagels.
Neo: But your ad campaign...
Guard: False advertising. Whatcha gonna do, kill us all?
(which is just plain silly)


TANK: What do you need?
NEO: Lightsabers. Lots of lightsabers.
TRINITY: Sweet deal! I've always wanted to use one of these--
GEORGE LUCAS: Copyright infringement alert! Hayden, attack!
HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN: *sobs*
GEORGE LUCAS: Can't you do anything aside from cry?
NEO: Never mind, lets just go with guns.

Guard: Sorry, we're out of bagels.
Neo: But your ad campaign...
Guard: False advertising. Whatcha gonna do, kill us all? has 5 votes (Pteryx, Standback, PHJ, KillerGodMan, NAHTMMM).

aaaaand...hmm...that seems to be the only one...no, wait. Standback also voted for this part in addition:
Trinity: Knock knock.
Guard: Who's there?
Trinity: A pair of heavily armed people who are about to run roughshod over everybody in the room.
Guard: Two heavily armed people who are about to run roughshod over everybody in the room who?

01-15-2005, 10:01 PM
The Morpheus scene is tricky...the problem is, I don't want to vote for the 2 vote block, but on the other hand, applying anywhere else doesn't make the decision easier.

Of course, I'd like to pimp out my own (the first), but nothing really jumps at me.

Gatac

NAHTMMM
01-15-2005, 10:43 PM
Well, I threw in my vote for the first one listed because nothing really jumped out at me either. And the first one looks short and snappy and it's silly in a nice where-did-THAT-come-from way.

The second one just doesn't thrill me. It's missing something, possibly.

I like the concept behind the third one (but then I was involved in it ;)). Brown's line could probably be changed and improved.

I wrote the fourth one listed, and I still feel the need to change things a bit (see the post where I suggested it for why). Maybe we could make it work by changing Smith's first line toAgent Smith: Setting free, setting f--waaait a moment. Ha, nice try. Your follow-the-leader mind tricks won't work on *me*.or something to show he does want to "win" but isn't willing to be tricked into doing something he doesn't want to do.

Well, to my defense, my Morpheus Block combines the video game cheat code idea, Megaman-style weapon strategy and a hint of Matrix Reloaded in it, so maybe it's a bit too much for one scene.

Neo 1, Morpheus 4!

For the Morpheus scene, so far:

Option 1: 2 votes
Option 2: 1 vote
Option 3: 4 votes
Option 4: 2 votes





In addition, Standback and possibly JobeGDG think we should include the "Knock knock" part of the Neo block. That's 1 (or 2) out of 8 who want to include that so far.


While the "knock knock" bit is undeniably funny (8)), I suspect the fiver is long enough already. I'm against including that bit. YMMV.

01-21-2005, 11:16 PM
My votes remain the same, after some ponderation.

NAHTMMM
02-12-2005, 05:42 PM
So it looks like the final version of this block will be:

Neo: I'd like a Morpheus To Go, please.
Guard: Sorry, we're out of bagels.
Neo: But your ad campaign...
Guard: False advertising. Whatcha gonna do, kill us all?

Smith: Look, would you two just leave us alone so I can rant at Morpheus about how much I hate this place?
Brown and Jones: Eh?
Smith: Er, I mean, go fetch the Comfy Chair.
Brown: GASP! Use the Comfy Chair before using the Cushions? We've never done it that way before!
Smith: Good idea. Fetch both. That ought to give me enough time.




And we could use a few votes regarding whether to include
Trinity: Knock knock.
Guard: Who's there?
Trinity: A pair of heavily armed people who are about to run roughshod over everybody in the room.
Guard: Two heavily armed people who are about to run roughshod over everybody in the room who?
Trinity: Sigh. He's even more clueless than you are.
Neo: Er, thanks, I think.
As I said above, it's funny, but I think this is getting a little too long to include it (unfortunately). But that's just my opinion.
Currently only one or two people have voted in favor of it (as opposed to one against), so there hasn't been enough interest shown to justify including it. Yet.

Standback
02-13-2005, 11:16 AM
In retrospect, putting in the "knock knock" block in addition makes absolutely no sense, it covers the same scene as "Morpheus to Go". In fact, I'm not at all sure I wanted *both* those blocks to begin with. I might have just listed my favorites.

New blocks, Zeke? Please pretty please? :D
