The Matrix Reloaded: The Abridged Script

The Matrix Reloaded: The Abridged Script


KEANU enters a white room, the walls of which are covered in monitors. A chair spins around to reveal THE EXPLAINER.

Who are you?

I am The Explainer. I designed the matrix screenplay. Unable to decently explain the convoluted plot well, I have resorted to putting myself here in the final act and having you ask all of the questions the audience wants to ask.
(dramatic pause)
You must begin by asking your own questions then gradually switch to asking those of the audience, in order to not make this scene any more awkward than it already is. Concordantly, while your first question may be the most pertinent, you may or may not realize it is also the most irrelevant.

    Yeah, I see what he's saying. But it'd be worth the price of admission to hear him ask the first question the audience really wants answered "Can we have our $10 and 2+ hours of our lives back?" But since it's worth the price of admission to hear him say that, he can't ask it! It's a paradox! Oh, they're too clever for me....
