Oracle Quotes in The Matrix (1999)


Oracle Quotes:

  • Oracle: You're cuter than I thought. I can see why she likes you.

    Neo: Who?

    Oracle: Not too bright, though.

  • Oracle: I'd ask you to sit down, but, you're not going to anyway. And don't worry about the vase.

    Neo: What vase?

    [Neo turns to look for a vase, and as he does, he knocks over a vase of flowers, which shatters on the floor]

    Oracle: That vase.

    Neo: I'm sorry...

    Oracle: I said don't worry about it. I'll get one of my kids to fix it.

    Neo: How did you know?

    Oracle: Ohh, what's really going to bake your noodle later on is, would you still have broken it if I hadn't said anything?

  • Oracle: Do you know what that means?

    [points to a banner]

    Oracle: It means know thy self. I wanna tell you a little secret, being the one is just like being in love. No one needs to tell you you are in love, you just know it, through and through.

  • Oracle: OK, now I'm supposed to say, "Hmm, that's interesting, but... " then you say...

    Neo: ..."but what?"

    Oracle: But... you already know what I'm going to tell you.

    Neo: I'm not The One.

    Oracle: Sorry, kid. You got the gift, but it looks like you're waiting for something.

    Neo: What?

    Oracle: Your next life, maybe. Who knows? That's the way these things go.

  • Oracle: The great and powerful Oracle. We meet at last. I suppose you've been expecting me, right? The all-knowing Oracle is never surprised. How can she be, she knows everything. But If that's true, then why is she here? If she knew I was coming, why didn't she leave?

    [sweeps plate of cookies off table]

    Agent Smith: Maybe you knew I was going to do that, maybe you didn't. If you did, that means you baked those cookies and set that plate right there deliberately, purposefully. Which means you're sitting there also deliberately, purposefully.

    Oracle: What did you do with Sati?

    Agent Smith/Sati: Cookies need love like everything does.

    Oracle: You are a bastard, you know that?

    Agent Smith/Seraph: You would know, Mom.

  • Oracle: Son, this isn't a game - not like one of your eighth-grade basketball ones that I missed - I'm talking about saving the world.

  • Oracle: Yes, yes. Coral poisoning.

    Nelson: But she didn't hurt the coral. Why did they do this to her?

    Oracle: She stepped on them. The coral are living creatures, the same as we are. They defended themselves the way they know how.

    Nelson: With poison?

    Oracle: If they don't look after themselves, there will soon be no coral left in the sea. And there wouldn't be any more coral earrings or necklaces.
