The Animatrix Horror Film Trailer 1
"WHO AM I (ANIMATRIX EDIT)"
"MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE"
- Mr. Popper: Neo, I knew you would save me. Neo: I didn't save you kid, you saved yourself.
Dan: Free, Free.
Duo: I wanted to go back with you, I love you.
Neo: They know you know, get out, get out now!
The Instructor: In the beginning, there was man. And for a time, it was good. But humanity's so-called civil societies soon fell victim to vanity and corruption. Then man made the machine in his own likeness. Thus did man become the architect of his own demise.
- WILHELM SCREAM: in the episode, "Matriculated". It happens when the Sentinels attack the humans in the lab near the end.
There is a reference to the Visual Effects Supervisor for the Matrix films, John Gaeta, during "The Second Renaissance Part II." As the human army gathers in the trenches, preparing for Operation Dark Storm, a male voice on the P.A. system announces, "Lt. Gaeta, please report to the Ops Center. Lt. Gaeta to Ops Center."
At the end of Kid's Story, Kid's grave reads: "Michael Karl Popper, Beloved Son, Rest in Peace". (Karl Popper is a famous 20th Century philosopher)
