330 The Matrix Trivia Questions, Answers, and Fun Facts

How much do you know about The Matrix? This category is for trivia questions and answers related to The Matrix (Movies). Each one is filled with fun facts and interesting information.
1 "The Matrix": "I know why you're here, Neo. I know what you've been doing... why you hardly sleep, why you live alone and why, night after night, you sit by your computer." Who said this to Neo?
Answer: Trinity

This scene is near the beginning of the movie, before Neo wakes up in the 'real world'. Trinity has been tasked with contacting Neo and bringing him to Morpheus; she finds him at a club, where he has gone out with a couple of friends. What Trinity is referring to, in the quote, is how Neo has suspicions of the existence of the Matrix.

2 What is the training program that everyone misses the first time?
Answer: The Jump Program

"I'm trying to free your mind, Neo, but I can only show you the door. You're the one that has to walk through it. Tank, load the jump program. You have to let it all go, Neo, fear, doubt, and disbelief. Free your mind."
  From Quiz: "The Matrix": Unplugged v.3
3 During the opening sequence, who is the first person to speak?
Answer: Cypher

We do not see the speaker, but you hear Cypher's voice answer, "Yeah?" to which Trinity replies, "Is everything in place?"
  From Quiz: "The Matrix": Unplugged v.1
4 What scene opens "The Matrix"?
Answer: Telephone conversation

No, as far as we can tell, Agent Smith has only one tie! Seriously though, the telephone convesation is between Cypher & Trinity, and gives away much of the plot, although you wouldn't understand it at the time.
  From Quiz: Remember, There Is No Quiz
5 What was the first word that Cypher said, in the beginning sequence?
Answer: "Yeah?"

Shortly before Trinity says her first words, Cypher says "Yeah?" as soon as he picks up the phone.
  From Quiz: What is The Matrix?
6 'Unfortunately no one can be told what the Matrix is, you have to see it for yourself.'
Answer: Morpheus

Morpheus says this to Neo when he asks what the Matrix is. This is said during the progress to convince Neo that he is the One. Morpheus is played by Laurence Fishburne.
    Your options: [ Trinity ] [ Tank ] [ Neo ] [ Morpheus ]
  From Quiz: "The Matrix" Quotes!
7 'The Matrix' opens with a conversation, and a rather revealing one at that if one is paying attention. Which two characters have this introductory discussion?
Answer: Trinity and Cypher

This elucidating conversation includes a prediction by Cypher that 'we're gonna kill him', in reference to Neo, and also initiates suspicion that an informant exists among the protagonists. Of course, a neophyte watcher of the film would not pick up these nuances, and the conversation comes off as mostly cryptic to the first-time viewer. Listening to the conversation again after having watched the film a number of times, however, allows for some keen insight.
    Your options: [ Trinity and Cypher ] [ Neo and Trinity ] [ Trinity and Morpheus ] [ Morpheus and Cypher ]
  From Quiz: 'The Matrix', Part 1: Before We Reload...
8 On what level do Neo and Trinity stop the elevator after the lobby shootout?
Answer: 41

If you look when Trinity pushes the emergency stop button, it flashes "Level 41....Have a Nice Day".
  From Quiz: The Matrix
9 When Morpheus is explaining how things got the way they are to Neo, he uses an old TV set. What are the two words on the back of this TV?
Answer: Radiola Television

If you watch as the camera glides across the back of the TV while Morpheus is speaking, you can read it. By the way, Neo never directly sees for himself the "scorched" surface that Morpheus describes - he only sees it on a TV. How does he know for sure that Morpheus is being truthful?
  From Quiz: The Matrix
10 How many lines does DuJour have in the entire film?
Answer: 2

11 "The Matrix": "We're willing to wipe the slate clean, give you a fresh start. All that we're asking in return is your cooperation in bringing a known terrorist to justice." Who tried to make this deal?
Answer: Agent Smith

The agents, led by Mr. Smith, learn of Neo through their (as yet unrevealed) spy. Despite efforts by Morpheus to help Neo to escape capture, the agents do so, and proceed to interrogate him. They play it as though they will cut a deal with Neo (or, Mr. Anderson) in order to get his help to capture the 'terrorist' known as Morpheus.
  From Quiz: Matrixes, Reloads, and Revolutions

27 "The Matrix": "You're cuter than I thought. I can see why she likes you." Who makes this observation?
Answer: The Oracle

Morpheus takes Neo to see the Oracle, a mysterious character hidden within the Matrix who has the power of foresight. We learn (after she meets with Neo) that she had told Morpheus sometime previously that he would find 'The One'. However, in her conversation with Neo, she pretty much blatantly tells him that he is *not* the one. In hindsight, it becomes evident that Neo had not yet made the mental shift necessary to become 'The One'.

The 'she' that the Oracle is referring to is, of course, Trinity. Neo obliviously responds to the above quote by saying, "Who?", to which the Oracle adds, "Not too bright, though."
  From Quiz: Matrixes, Reloads, and Revolutions

29 What is the name of the woman with the white rabbit tattoo?
Answer: DuJour
