Matrix, The - Morpheus Is Awake!
(Excuse my English)
Go to the scene where Zypher comes back from the visit to the oracle, after killing " big brother (?)" and hurts "Tank".
* Go forward to the scene where Zypher seats suddenly over Morpheus saying "Surprise A%%hole!"
* He says some other irrelevancies.
* Trinity says, "You gave them Morpheus..."
* And Zypher answers "He lies to us Trinity..." and some seconds later, while Zypher says "Red pill", Morpheus blinks his eyes. He is awake!
It looks like a joke from Laurence Fishburne (Morpheus), trying to annoy "Zypher" during the scene. What do you think?
Or have the words "Red Pill" some special meaning?

TACD, YOU'RE wrong, not jettiegirl! "you take the blue pill, the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill, you stay in wonderland and i show you how deep the rabbit hole goes....."

AAAAGGHH!!! There is NO relevance about the red pill on this occasion, if you watch, cypher says "Red pill" and morpheus blinks. Why? 'Cos when cypher says 'pill' the 'p' shoots a quick bit of air out of cyphers mouth and it makes mr.Fishburnes' eyes react!! THAT'S IT!! CASE CLOSED!!

When they are in the Matrix, everyone is moving. You can see Neo moving when he is fighting (or getting beat up), there is no reason to think that they don't move to a lesser degree when they are doing other things inside the Matrix. That said, he was probably supposed to sit still but he blinked. I seriously doubt that he moved his eyelids to throw off the actor playing Cypher.

What do you mean he's awake? He was never asleep! Think about it. When Trinity is being loaded with the information for the helicopter, her eyes flicker in the Matrix AND in real life. What's to say that if Morpheus blinks in the Matrix, that it doesn't also happen in real life (or the other way around)?

martin, Don't you know the significance of "red pill". Morpheus offered Neo 2 pills, a red and a blue pill. The red pill would "wake you up" from the Matrix. The blue pill would just make you forget you ever met Morpheus. If Cypher is there, obviously he took the red pill.

um, well while cypher was on top of morpheus morpheus has his eyes open. they probably thought that we wouldn't notice and they let Lawrence (morpheus) open his eyes for that shot, even though their eyes were supposed to be closed.

A) Big Brother is known as Dozer B) The character whom you refer to as "Zypher" is actually known as Cypher (you doos)
