The subject of this article is a film, and as a result, there should only be: five quotes per hour (about one quote every 12 minutes).

If you would like to add another quote to the page, you may first need to remove one that is already there in order to keep within the bounds of fair use of copyright material.


The Architect dialog[edit]

Shouldn't Neo's dialog with the Architect be included in more detail? I'll post the full transcript here for reference. – 80.203.113.142 15:40, 16 May 2006 (UTC)

Removed the list, if someone want's to view it, it's in the 566974 history. If anyone can translate the French that is spoken, that would be great. Thanks --Steinninn 15:07, 19 September 2007 (UTC)

Cleanup[edit]

I am in the process of cleaning up this article (01 Aug 09). According to Wikipedia, this movie is approximately 140 minutes (almost 2.5 hours). As per WQ:Limits, that allows this article approximately 15 quotes. I will be as charitable as possible in trying to choose appropriate quotes based on the limits and all the Wikipolicies I have read. I'm also bolding significant quotes: quotes that were either especially significant to the movie, somewhat notable in the real world due to the movie (eg., "I killed you, Mr. Anderson. I watched you die...."), or are particularly quotable on their own (eg., "I have sampled every language.... and Then tomorrow we may all be dead, but how would that be different from any other day?").

As of now there are 15 remaining quote "units" (i.e., quotes plus chunks of dialogue), not including taglines, as they don't fall under the same provisions for copyright. I estimated that 15 was fair for this article. Anyone, however, who wants to add a quote: be careful when adding quotes, and consider their importance to the film, their quotability outside the film, and their context (eg., does another one of the quotes basically say the same thing). Also, if you add quotes, you must strongly consider appropriately removing another quote. Be especially careful with the dialogue section; I have only included sections of dialogue where the interplay of conversation is concise, meaningful, understandable and relevant--especially not dialogue wherein one of the lines should be a lone quote. Too often on Wikiquote there is dialogue of a mundane conversation (full of speech fillers, like uh-huh, yeah, ummm, etc.) with one line which is quotable. I removed all dialogue which was redundant (i.e., having one quotable line within the dialogue was already quoted in this article). Peace and Passion ("I'm listening....") 03:06, 2 August 2009 (UTC)
