Tank Quotes in The Matrix (1999)


Tank Quotes:

  • Tank: So what do you need? Besides a miracle.

    Neo: Guns. Lots of guns.

  • Tank: Here you go, buddy; "Breakfast of Champions."

    Mouse: If you close your eyes, it almost feels like you're eating runny eggs.

    Apoc: Yeah, or a bowl of snot.

    Mouse: Do you know what it really reminds me of? Tasty Wheat. Did you ever eat Tasty Wheat?

    Switch: No, but technically, neither did you.

    Mouse: That's exactly my point. Exactly. Because you have to wonder: how do the machines know what Tasty Wheat tasted like? Maybe they got it wrong. Maybe what I think Tasty Wheat tasted like actually tasted like oatmeal, or tuna fish. That makes you wonder about a lot of things. You take chicken, for example: maybe they couldn't figure out what to make chicken taste like, which is why chicken tastes like everything.

    Apoc: Shut up, Mouse.

  • Tank: We're supposed to start with these operation programs first. That's major boring shit. Let's do something a little more fun. How about... combat training.

    Neo: Ju jitsu? I'm gonna learn Ju jitsu.

    [Tank winks and loads the program]

    Neo: Holy shit!

    Tank: Hey Mikey, I think he likes it. How about some more?

    Neo: Hell, yes. Hell yeah.

  • Tank: Neo, this has to be done.

    Neo: Does it? I don't know. This can't be just coincidence. It can't be.

    Tank: What are you talking about?

    Neo: The Oracle. She told me this would happen. She told me that I would have to make a choice.

    Trinity: What choice?

    [Neo walks away]

    Trinity: What are you doing?

    Neo: I'm going in.

    Trinity: No, you're not.

    Neo: I have to.

    Trinity: Neo, Morpheus sacrificed himself so we could get you out. There is no way you're going back in.

    Neo: Morpheus did what he did because he believes something I'm not.

    Trinity: What?

    Neo: I'm not the one, Trinity. The Oracle hit me with that too.

    Trinity: No, you have to be.

    Neo: I'm sorry, I'm not. I'm just another guy.

    Trinity: No, Neo, that's not true. It can't be true.

    Neo: Why?

    [no response, Neo walks away again]

    Tank: Neo, this is loco. They've got Morpheus in a military-controlled building. Even if you somehow got inside, those are agents holding him. Three of them. I want Morpheus back too but what you're talking about is suicide.

    Neo: I know that's what it looks like, but it's not. I can't explain to you why it's not. Morpheus believes in something and he was ready to give his life, I understand that now. That's why I have to go.

    Tank: Why?

    Neo: Because I believe in something.

    Trinity: What?

    Neo: I believe I can bring him back.

  • Tank: Door on your left.

    [Neo goes right]

    Tank: Your other left.

  • Cypher: Look into his eyes. Those big pretty eyes and tell me... Yes or no?

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

  • Cypher: No. I don't believe it.

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