Sorry everybody, but the window washers were The Matrix's Stunt Coordinator, Glenn Boswell, and a stuntman, Lou Horvath. Don't believe me? Look in THE ART OF THE MATRIX, pg. 401. This is a huge section of Scene Notes from The Matrix, written by Phil Oosterhouse, the Assistant Director.

The window washer scene is also our first exposure to a deja-vu, or glitch in the matrix when they change something. Watch it again and look for what Neo is really reacting to.

Ok, i'm sure that the deja vu theory is valid and most likely correct, but i heard that the reason why Neo looks at the window washers like that is because the soapy water on the window looks like matrix code. Now, this is probably a heap of crap, but i thought i'd put it out there...

There is an amusing connection between the firm (large software corporation) and the deliberate diversion to the window cleaners, (M*cros*ft's own windows), you could also add that the cleaners are standing on a platform. One last thing is they are providing clarity for something that 'isn't real'.

technically in the script they were credited as Larry and Andy, but it was actually two extras since they had to direct. Same difference though

Monstrosity.... her name is Carrie-Anne Moss... But thats not what I wanted to say... Everyone in here holds a good point. Some things I would never had thought of... and I'm the ultimate Matrix freak from where I'm from :) But I always like to think of the window washers as just odd humor... kinda like the ding of the elevator after the lobby scene. :)
