Are you challenging me?
Name your stakes.
If I win, you become my slave.
You wish! You'll do shitwork, scan, crack copyrights...
And if I win?
Make it my first-born!
Make it our first-date!
I don't DO dates. But I don't lose either, so you're on!
"This is our world now. The world of the electron and the switch; the beauty of the baud. We exist without nationality, skin color, or religious bias. You wage wars, murder, cheat, lie to us and try to make us believe it's for our own good, yet we're the criminals. Yes, I am a criminal. My crime is that of curiosity. I am a hacker, and this is my manifesto." Huh? Right? Manifesto? "You may stop me, but you can't stop us all."
Ram?n "Phantom Phreak" Sanchez:
So, uh, what's your interest in Kate Libby, eh? Academic? Purely sexual?
What's up, man? I'm the Phreak. [Dade simply looks at him] The "Phantom Phreak"? [Dade doesn't react] The "King of Nynex"? I know you play the game. [Starts to hand something to Dade] Here--
[runs up to Phreak and Dade, frantically] Phreak-Phreak-Phreak-Phreak-Phreak-Phreak! Dude-dude-dude-dude-dude-dude!
[smacks Joey a few times to calm him down] Joey, Joey! One more "dude" outta you, and I'mma slap the sh*t outta you, ok?! Now I keep trying to save you from yourself, but you gotta stop letting your mama dress you, man! You're hopeless!
Look, I need a handle, ok? I don't have an identity if I don't have a handle.
You know, you're right about that. [Phreak turns to Dade again and hands him a flyer] Check it, Friday. [Dade looks at the flyer while Phreak leaves with Joey following after him]
How about "The Master of Disaster"?
You're hopeless, man. Utterly hopeless.
"Ultra Laser"? "Doctor Doom"?
Our recent unknown intruder penetrated using the superuser account, giving him access to our whole system.
Precisely what you're paid to prevent.
Someone didn't bother reading my carefully prepared memo on commonly-used passwords. Now, then, as I so meticulously pointed out, the four most-used passwords are: love, sex, secret, and... [Plague looks directly at Margo, who glares right back at him] god. So, would your holiness care to change her password?
[Dade, Phreak, and Cereal Killer arrive at an apartment building. The hallway they are in is marked heavily with graffiti]
Nice place, huh? [They stop outside a door, which Phreak knocks on]
You guys ever hear of a hacker called "Acid Burn"? Do you know who he is?
...no. Don't know who he is. [To Cereal] Do you? [Cereal merely shrugs. The door finally opens, revealing a man wearing a hooded cloak]
Lord Nikon! This is... [Motions to Dade]
Paul "Lord Nikon" Cook:
Never heard of you. Done anything?
No. [Nikon promptly slams the door shut]
[Bangs on the door] Come onnnn!
Man, I hate this neighborhood.
[Opens the door and sneers at Dade, asking mockingly] What, did your mom buy you a 'puter for Christmas? [Scoffs before looking to Phreak] Does he know anything?
Sure, man. He's elite.
[Regards Dade once more before stepping aside] Come in. [Dade, Phreak, and Cereal enter, but Cereal pauses]
Yo, Nikon, can I crash at your place tonight?
[sternly] Again? [Pushes his hood back to look at Cereal before eventually smiling and nodding] Yeah sure, man. [They both laugh and begin to mock-fight with one another, complete with exaggerated martial arts cries as Nikon shuts the door]
[Kate has seen that Dade is at her party and is not pleased]
[points at Dade while angrily addressing Phreak] What is he doing here?
Relax, Burn. He's my guest.
[realizing who Kate really is] "Burn", you're Acid Burn. You booted me out of OTV.
[visibly confused] What?
[offers a handshake to Kate] I'm Crash Override.
[incredulously] You're the moron that's been invading my turf?!
[clearly amused as he steps between Kate and Dade] Wait-wait-wait-wait! [Motions to Dade] "Crash [proceeds to motion to Kate] and Burn?!" [hoots and laughs]
Eugene "The Plague" Belford:
You wanted to know who I am, Zero Cool? Well, let me explain the New World Order. Governments and corporations need people like you and me. We are Samurai... the Keyboard Cowboys... and all those other people out there who have no idea what's going on are the cattle... Moooo.
