Matrix, The Easter Egg - Door Numbers

1. The room that Trinity is found at the very beginning of the movie is number 303. If you think about what the word TRINITY stands for than that makes perfect sense.
2. The apartment number of Neo's apartment is 101, which again makes perfect sense since he is THE ONE!
3. The number of the apartment that has the exit for Neo at the end of the movie is again 303. I am not quite sure about that one but maybe it is because it is Trinity who brings him back to life (in the cheesiest of ways Hollywood has to offer!)

For anyone who still believes that room 303 is not the same room, watch the movie, and notice a couple of things... In the beginning when Trinity is in room 303, after succefully whopping the sh** out of the cops she talks to morpheus about the line being traced, and Morpheus says..."I know, they cut the hard-line, you're going to have to find ANOTHER EXIT", so that is the answer to why she couldn't exit out of the same room that Neo does in the end. Also, on the wall you will see something written, it looks like a big rectangular stamp, which you can also see at the end once Neo stops the bullets. pause when he grabs one of them, and you can see into the room.(2hrs 5min into the movie) Another thing, when the Agents come out of the elevator, to capture Trinity in the beginning, and when they are leaving after killing Neo, look at the numbers(above the elevator) and the buttons(to go up and down, it is the same face plate). they are the same. And most of all It is the SAME HOTEL(heart o' the city hotel)!!! you will see the name of the hotel in the beginning about 3min 30sec into the movie, when the agents are walking into the building to get Trinity, and again when Neo is going into it at about 2hrs 1min 34sec into the movie. About why the agent was already in the room could be a number of things, it could be that it is the same exit(a know one) that the traced Trinity in, or that he picked up the trace from Tank telling Neo. I think both are good guesses, but the fact that the agent already knows about that exit is probably the real reason. If you notice when Neo is about to go up to the hotel, the agent is down stairs and he looks upwards (2hrs 1min 34sec into the movie), and that is right before Tank tells Neo what room the exit is in, so my guess, is that if he was tracing the conversation, he already had an idea before hand. .¤(_|-\* XSSOTAE */-|_)¤.

YES, the building is the same. YES, the room # is the same. YES, Agent Smith intercepted the message, its in the movies dialog. YES, Agent Smith realizes its the same location. YES, Trinity could not use this location as an exit originally, because the HARD-LINE was cut (so says Morphius). YES, a HARD-LINE is required for entry/exit from the Matrix. ... At some point during the storyline, the hard-line must have been repaired. Perhaps inadvertently when the Matrix was altered in the Deja Vu? sequence.

I like your reference to the number on the door. What they are using is a full circle approach. In movies, many will start in a setting or location and try and end where it began. It helps bring a sense of completion to the story and general conflict. I do realize that the movie didn't actually end at the hotel, but the films conflict did. Before it could end, Neo had to come "full circle."

number three is incorrect. if you listen to watch tank says when neo is running from the agents, one of them stops and looks up at the name of the hotel, which is "heart O' the City" hotel. it is the very same room in the first scene, where trinity has to escape. that is why the agent is already in the room. he knows that that is where neo is heading.... i think tank also says something along the lines of "i've got a patch on an old exit..." - although that might be from a different part... i cant quite remember.. - so no egg there, we are supposedf to know that its the same room

the reason the rooms at the begining and end have the same number, (303) is that they're the SAME ROOM! That's how Agent Smith knows what room Neo is going to and makes it before him- he already knows where the exit is! (Tank- "I got a patch on an old exit..."

Trinity and Cypher were talking in the beginning of the movie because Trinity was relieving Cypher for a "duty shift" either watching over or looking for Neo. Cypher, obviously, had good reasons for wanting to keep the line open, so the Agents could have a chance to trace the line.

Here's some more "three" trivia, all to be found during the early run by Trinity away from the agents at the beginning of the movie: * Trinity does a "Superman" style leap across a roof and through a window. She crashes through and rolls down the stairs - then turns onto her back, pulls two pistols and looks back up at the window she crashed through. The window pane is broken and there are two pieces of the pane remaining. If you imagine the window outline to be a clock, the remaining pieces of window pane form clock hands reading THREE-O'CLOCK. * Trinity runs into the phone booth. As the cement truck is bearing down, she reaches out one hand to touch the glass (she does this same thing in the subway station near the end of the movie). The hand touching the glass is a bit out of focus, but on her face are the shadows of THREE FINGERS from her hand. * The cement truck barrels through the phone booth and then the building. On top of the truck is a set of THREE RUNNING LIGHTS centered on the front edge of the truck roof. Cheers, Martek

And let's not forget, with all these Biblical references, that in the Old Testament of the Bible, in the Books of Moses, the word "MATRIX" is used and is literally translated "womb".

Okay, here goes. I've watched The Matrix five times in the last two weeks, and I have a steel-trap mind for dialogue and plot nuances. 1)The call is traced by the Agents, who were tipped off by Cypher. 2)Trinity isn't worried about "chatting" with Cypher because she TRUSTS him. There is no reason for her to be worried. 3)The hardline is cut by the agents, not Morpheus, so that Trinity can't exit. 4)We only really go into the Matrix twice. The first time, when Neo is being taken to see the Oracle, the heroes wind up being found by the Agents and have to run from them. The second time, they're doing what is essentially a search and rescue mission, which is not something you usually dawdle around for. 5)If the hardline (main line connecting the Matrix to the real world) was cut, then it would disconnect the phone service for that portion of the Matrix grid. Thus, the hardline would have been repaired by the phone company. I understand that some people are are a tad ditzy, for lack of a better term, and I'm not trying to make anyone feel bad. I just think that people who find that they have trouble filling in the blank spots shouldn't claim to have found a plot hole, because no director is going to devote time to show the repairman working on the severed line unless it's important.

To Biff the wise. Agent Smith knows which room Neo is headed for because he intercepts Tank's transmission (the cell phone) to Neo. Tank says "The fireescape at the end of the alley, room 303". Agent Smith intercepts this.

Actually, Fuzzy|Logic, Biff is right. I'm fairly certain that Smith could've figured out which room Trinity was in at the beginning. At the end, when he sees that he's at the same motel, his logic tells him that there is only one link to the realworld in there, so he'd automatically go to 303. -§-Mush-§-

It HAS to be the same room. There's only one 303 in the building, right? How many "Heart O' The City Hotel"s do you think there are in one city? I'm gonna agree with everyone else (and with myself) when I say that it's the same room. Remember, Tank said they cut the hardwire (in the beginning.) THAT's the only reason Trinity had to run. Supposedly, they repaired the hardwire. -M

Qui-Gon-Kenobi has a pretty good grasp on the situation being discussed. But, I think Witchywoman has further confused the situation. The call was not tapped by the agents and Morpheus did not cut the line. Trinitys location was given up by Cypher, and the agents cut the line. What doesn't make a whole lotta sense is why Trinity is risking valuable time in the Matrix chit-chatting with Cypher (at the very beginning, while watching the binary code). The rest of the movie, they want to be in and out as fast as possible. By the way, why do the agents have to speak out loud to communicate with EACH OTHER.

Silly me, I thought it was obvious that a Neophyte would reside in room 101 (after all, isn't the saying 'take a crash course in Math 101'...or whatever subject...if you need to learn the basics?) Yes, it was the same room. Yes, when the agent got confirmation of the area they were in he realized where they were going. Yes Neo was told they had the line patched.

101 may indeed be the number five in binary, but it doesn't look likely that this was the desired interpretation. Why? Well ask yourself, is 303 binary?

Room 101 is also the same room that was in the movie "1984".

Actually, at the start of the movie when Trinity is in room 303 she is using the line to get info (probably on Neo) and Morpheus cuts the line because they discover it is being tapped by the agents. Once the line was cut she had to find another line which is the reason she had to leave the room. The line would have been easily reopened for Neo later in the movie.

To make this simple for all of you, have you ever heard of a plothole? Its where the director or author, or whatever says one thing, which makes another thing impossible, but yet the impossible thing is done anyway. (I know my definition was terrible. Feel free to clarify it for anyone who doesn't know what one is!) This is one of the many plot holes I have spotted.

They most likely speak out loud so that we, the audience, know what the hell is going on. When I want people to know what I'm thinking, I usually do the same thing.

actually, neo is going back to the beginning of the story, and the movie is ending there as well. it started with a chase from that building, and ends in a stand off.

Has anyone thought about the fact, that there will be 3 Matrix movies and this one was the first movie???? That could also be a reason for the number games... Let's see the sequel.

OMG. Why cant you all just realize that it is the same room. Think about the chance of a room looking the same having the exact same room number. And everything in the movie says its the same room so just except it. Gosh!!! And for some reason I recall in reading the script that it says that its the same room from the beggining. So just whatever you think just think it. K. Peace.

Although I know this is incorrect, its an idea anyway. The room Numbers could also be attributed to the rankings on Morpheus's ship. Although Morpheus is captain we can assume that Neo would go up to #1 (in some way shape or form) Cos he is a god of some sort. That would make morpheus #2 and Reduce Trinity to #3 which would account for their room numbers being 101 and 303.

Geeze, I'm getting tired of people saying that the room is the same as Trinity was in before. IT ISN'T!! You wanna know why it isn't? One simple reason. She doesn't escape from that room. She has to leave the room to find an exit. Therefore Neo couldn't use the line from the same room as an exit.
