Cypher Quotes in The Matrix (1999)


Cypher Quotes:

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • [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.

  • 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?

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

  • [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: 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.

  • [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: No. I don't believe it.

    Tank: Believe it or not, you piece of shit, you're still gonna burn.

  • 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?

  • [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: 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...

  • 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.

  • 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.
