|*suddenly Morpheus appears out of the port*|
Gah, you beat me to it. I was about to introduce a Matrix charaacter too.
::: 3 tanks begin rolling into position to excecute Sark's command as per the MCP's request :::
TF: Hey, buddy, how are you keeping those sunglasses on your nose like that? Is this sort of like the spoon trick?
Morph: There is no spoon.
TF: Oh yeah, you said that. I forgot.
Sark: Maybe he means there is no spoon, and instead there are sunglasses. Therefore the answer to your query would be yes. It is a trick.
Morph: No, that is not what I meant. Nevermind, forget it.
::: a strange-looking machine rezzes into the entry port :::
Guard 2: Ok, this is getting ridiculous.
Guard 1: Master Control must be collecting exhibits for this year's freak show or something.
Guard 3: Comeon, let's get this over with. Vacate entry port program. *zap*
Robot: Hey, ow!!
Guard 2: Come along quietly.
Sark: *sigh* you there, what was your build date?
Robot: I was born in 1985.
Robot: This place is pretty. And look at me, I look so, so different!
Morph: Your appearance now is what we call residual self image. It is the mental projection of your digital self.
TF: What are you?
Robot: Me not a thing. Me a who. My name is Number Johnny 5. I'm alive!
TF: But... what are you?
J5: I'm a machine. But I am alive.
Morph: A living machine! The enemy! ::: unsheathes his katana ::: Kill it!
J5: No!! No disassemble!!!
::: back at the entry port, another rez-in is commencing. the guards hold their staffs tightly :::
Guard 2: Here we go again.
Guard 3: Be ready for anything.
::: a small round object appears in the data stream and rezzes into... an orange. the small fruit remains suspended in midair for a moment, then drops to the floor and rolls over to the foot of one of the guards. the guards look at each other and then back at the orange :::
Guard 1: Ok, umm.. how do you want to proceed?
Guard 2: No clue...
Guard 3: Umm... vacate entry port... whatever you are.
::: the orange suddenly begins to rez out again and disappears from sight :::
Guard 2: That's it, I'm requesting a transfer out of this sector.
