More lines of code run down the screen until the whole screen is covered in
Link: Uh, guys! There's somesthing I think you would want to see!
Neo, Trinity and Morpheus run in.
Neo: What's going on?
Trinity: Oh my god.
Link: I don't know sir. First the screen was blank as it always was, but now.....
Trinity: It's back.
Morpheus: What did this?
Neo: No, WHO did this?

Fry and Leela have finish hooking Bender up to the machine.
Fry: OK. I'm going to go in.

Fry: No. Who's going to operate while I'm in there?
Leela: Only Amy knows how to do this.
Fry: Amy's on a vacation with Kif. I don't think she could help now. You can
do this. It's just like piloting the ship. Only with more buttons.
The phone rings.
Fry: Who could that be? (Fry picks up the phone) Hello?
Neo: Hello Fry.
Fry: Holy nuts! Neo?!
Leela looks in surprise.
Fry: What's happening?
Neo: I could ask you the same thing.
Fry: You Know?
Neo: Yes. It's all over our screens.
Fry: That must've happened after me and Leela attached him to the machine.
Neo: What happened?
Fry: We took Bender's disk out and threw it in a pile of other disks and when
we decided to put it back in, I put in the wrong disk. It was unintentional, believe
Neo: I believe you. Are you going in?
Neo: Who are you going to see?
Fry: What do you think?
Neo: I'm going in with you.
Neo: There's someone we have to pay a visit to.
Neo: The Merrovingian
Fry: Why? He has nothing to do with this.
Neo: He has placed a bounty on our lives the moment we visited him last time.
We will go to him.
Fry: OK. Where do I meet you?
Neo: Meet me at the downtown bridge.
Fry: See you there.
Fry hangs up.
Fry: Ok. I'm going in.
Leela: Good luck.

Neo: That was too easy.
Fry and Neo enter the elevator. Fry takes out two guns from his sleeves.
Neo: Why do you need guns? You have the same power as me.
Fry: I don't know, thought it would be more fun this way. Besides, when I run
out, it's ass-kicking time.
The door opens. Many gaurds see them walk through. Fry fires round after round
into the gun check man trying to reach for a gun. The remaining jump on the ceiling

Fry and Neo walk up the stairs and sit down.

then that means that this program has been rebooted.

Fry: I do. I rebooted the system.
Merrovingian: Well, now, wasn't that sweet?
Fry: It was an accident. If I could, I could go back and change it.
Merrovingian: Well f you know, why are you here.
Neo: We're here because of you. We've come for the bounty you set on our heads.
Merrovingian: Well if you don't want to be hunted down then i'm afraid I cannot
do that, you see. If you won't turn your selves in. They will do it for you.
Fry and Neo turn around and see two white figures walking towards them.
