[color=#000000ost_uid0](That's the Latin motto on the Oracle's door, supposedly meaning "Know thyself." While "nosce" is correct, I can't find "temet" anywhere -- certainly not as a form of the relative pronoun. It should be just "te" here. The closest correct Latin phrase to the given one is "temetum nosce", meaning "know strong wine." Hmmm....)

Neo goes in to see the Oracle and they have a creepy conversation. If you haven't seen this scene, you should definitely read the actual dialogue. The Oracle tells Neo he's not the One; he's "got the gift," but apparently he's waiting for something. She then warns him that either he or Morpheus is going to die, and that the choice will be his. She gives him a cookie.

One scene for this block -- I think we can skip Neo's brief exchange with Morpheus on the way out.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Random thoughts:

Oracle-as-Zathras: Not the One, not the One...

Neo: So if you tell me to do something, and then I do it, did you really predict the future, or did you just guide me onto a path you wanted me to go? Or, if you did see the future, and tell me about it, and then I do something different, does that mean you changed the future? And what *would* have I done if you hadn't mentioned the vase? My...
Oracle: Tylenol?
Neo: ... head hurts - [iost_uid0]cut that out![/iost_uid0][/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Another of my cut-to-fit blocks.



Neo: [iost_uid0]You're[/iost_uid0] the Oracle? And, and [iost_uid0]this[/iost_uid0] is supposed to be Delphi?
Oracle: This is Delphi on a shoestring budget. You'd think with all the money they spent on the special effects...oh well. I am indeed the Oracle. Don't believe me? Watch me prove my legitimacy by foreseeing your mishap with my prized antique lamp.
Neo: Antique lamp? Huh? Wher--
Vase: GAK!
Oracle: Ha! [iost_uid0]Psych![/iost_uid0] I knew you were going to do that. Just as I know that you are not the One. The One? Ha, One-Tenth is more like it.
Neo: But...but, if I'm not the One, then I'm nothing. What happens [iost_uid0]now[/iost_uid0]?
Oracle: No, you're thinking of Cypher. [iost_uid0]He's[/iost_uid0] nothing. And what happens now is that I exert my legitimacy with the audience by predicting the death of either you or Super Ohm.
Neo: Come on, surely you can do better than narrowing it down to two people. Which one of us is going to die?
Oracle: Difficult to see. Â Always in motion is the future.
Neo: Riiiight. Anything else?
Oracle: Well, I would tell you that Trinity likes you, but I won't because she'd kill me if she found out I told you. So I'll just give you this cookie instead.
Neo: Ooo, a cookie![/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]This one's easy to truly five:

[bost_uid0]Oracle[/bost_uid0]: You're not the One yet. If you were, you wouldn't break the vase.
[bost_uid0]Neo[/bost_uid0]: What vase? *smash* ...Oh. Does that mean I don't get a cookie?[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Neo: Cool looking vase
Oracle: Go ahead and break it
Neo: Why would you want me to do such a thing?
Oracle: Because you are not the one that has to fix it.
----------------------------------------------------
Oracle: Im sorry, you are not The One.
Neo: I can fix that.
Oracle: How so?
One: I thought you could predict the future?
----------------------------------------------------
Oracle: Im sorry to tell you this, but you are not the One.
Neo: What makes you say that?
Oracle: Because I have the One Ring! *disappears*
----------------------------------------------------
Oracle: Im sorry to tell you this, but you are not the One.
Neo: Let me guess. Spoon Boy is the One.
Oracle: Yes. Hey, how did you know that?
Neo: Lucky guess.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Given that the last block ended with

[quoteost_uid0][iost_uid0]Neo: Are there forks?
Boy: Yes, Neo. Â The forks will be with you... always.[/iost_uid0][/quoteost_uid0]

it seems fitting to continue with

[quoteost_uid0]Neo: I'm not the One? There goes our last hope.
Oracle: No. Â There is another.[/quoteost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]I assume he means Richard Simm[bost_uid0]o[/bost_uid0]ns. A notoriously perky champion of weight loss.
