Default Block 27 - Knowing the path and walking the path

On the roof, Neo tries to break it to Morpheus that the Oracle told him he's not the One, but Morpheus corrects him -- she told Neo "exactly what you needed to hear." (In other words, she totally and completely lied to him. Geez. I hope her pants are on fire.) The team calls Tank for an exit, and he's got one ready, a payphone in the subway.

The Agents are pissed, especially Smith. But there's a silver lining: they did at least manage to trace Morpheus back to his ship. They send Sentinels to destroy it. Smith, however, still hopes to catch the pesky humans, sensing somehow that "They're not out yet."

Two scenes here, three at most. You don't necessarily have to cover everything in this block; each bit is pretty short. Synopsis here.

Neo: Have you ever seen a helicopter blow up in slow motion?
Morpheus: Yes, but you might want to hold on to that rope.
Neo: Why? *Neo gets pulled away by the rope*

Morpheus: Tank, we need an exit.
Tank: Got one, it's at Subway.
Neo: Good, im hungry.

Agent Brown: The trace was completed.
Agent Smith: Good, now order the strike.
Agent Brown: Um, Sentinals don't arrive until...
Agent Smith: Tuesday...

A couple rough ideas...

Neo/Morpheus conversation -

Neo: Morpheus...I'm not...
Morpheus: The One? Of course you are, Alice.
Neo: Not Alice! Quit calling me that!
Morpheus: Fine by me... Julie.
Neo: Goddammit!

Evil conversation -

Smith: So...who wants to go kill the humans?
Sentinel: Me! Ooh, ooh, pick me!
Smith: But you suck!
Sentinel: And I suppose you could do better, Mr. Give Morpheus A Spectacular View Of His Escape Route?
Smith: Tell you what, first one to kill a human gets a recurring villain role.
Sentinel: You're on.

MORPHEUS: You are the One, Neo. There is a difference between knowing the path and walking the path.
NEO: Uh-huh. And which fortune cookie did you rip that bit of wisdom out of?
MORPHEUS: How abusrd! I've never --
DELIVERY GUY: Excuse me, which one of youse guys ordered a crate of fortune cookies?

Rayinne's "recurring villian role" block is great.

Neo: I'm not the One, Morpheus. The Oracle said.
Morpheus: Ahh... But she didn't say "Simon Says," did she?

Agent Jones: Let's kill them in their ship.
Agent Smith: No, let's kill them in the Matrix!
Agent Brown: Guys, guys, calm down. Why don't we just go ahead and do both?

Oh, something like that's gotta be in the final draft.

Neo: I'm not the One, Morpheus. The Oracle said.
Morpheus: Ahh... But she didn't say "Simon Says," did she?
Neo: No, but she did mention meeting an old buddy near a special phone booth. I thought she was nuts, but then she said, "Simon Says."

Neo: Observe! I shall rescue my beloved by generating a movie physics field around us!
Morpheus: Not the One, eh? If the glove does fit, you must be it...
Neo: Look, how can I be the One if I doubt myself and keep getting people killed who try to help me?
Frodo: Well...
Trinity: Little help here?

Brown: Well, they're gone. Outta here. They fled. Escaped. Did the Elvis.
Smith: Yeah, yeah, I get it.
Jones: We have located their ship. Surely it would brighten your mood to blow it up?
Smith: Yes. But don't call me Shirley.

Neo: I'm not the One, Morpheus.
Morpheus: Yes you are.
Neo: No I'm not.
(pause)
Morpheus: Tag. You're the One.

Zeke's description inspired the following:

Agent Smith: They got AWAY?!
Agent Brown: Well, umm, you see...
Agent Smith: SMITH SMASH PUNY HUMANS!
Sentinal: And us, too.
Agent Smith: Yeah, OK.

First block proposal:

Neo: I hate to break it to you but the Oracle said I'm not --
Morpheus: La la la, I'm not listening!
Tank (over the phone): I said the exit's at the subway!
Morpheus: I wasn't talking to you, Tank; geez.

As for the second block, I like this one:

Morpheus: We're not playing Simon Says
Neo: But
Morpheus: No

...is that a no?

Or does it mean that I can sweep the vote because no one else reads these threads?

You can't sweep the vote. In tonight's update I'll remind people about FBC; hopefully that'll help.

In this block I'm going to unabashedly vote for myself... because not only are they my favorites, but others seemed to like them too.

Standback's Simon-Says Block:
Quote:
Neo: I'm not the One, Morpheus. The Oracle said.
Morpheus: Ahh... But she didn't say "Simon Says," did she?
Standback's Let's-Do-Both Block:
Quote:
Agent Jones: Let's kill them in their ship.
Agent Smith: No, let's kill them in the Matrix!
Agent Brown: Guys, guys, calm down. Why don't we just go ahead and do both?
