While we're still on the subject of 'The Matrix', there's a little known fact about this movie which assuming like me you're also a nerd should find mildly interesting.

Love this Matrix-themed sequence, but, for examples of Wally drawing from pop culture, it's still tough to top his hilarious Beaches-themed line from some years ago, when Dilbert tells the PHB that his LAN is a "token ring LAN", the ring of which, within the week, Dilbert figures he will tell the PHB, "is in the Ethernet". Wally's response to Dilbert as the two are walking away from the PHB's office--"You are the wind beneath my wings"--is as classic as they come... : P
