I arrived at Jeff's house just in time to
see the end of The Matrix (and just as I suspected, they had all seen Matrix
Reloaded). It was then that Jeff mentioned an interesting bit of trivia
between the two films. In Matrix Reloaded, Neo meets with
The Architect, the supposed creator of the Matrix, in an office filled with
TV monitors, filled with images of
Neo. But this isn't the first time that Neo has been through this
office. In The
Matrix, just after Neo has been arrested by Agent Smith and taken into
custody, he's being escourted to an interrogation room and passes through a
room filled with TV monitors
filled with images of himself!
Curious indeed …

Just a clarification from Jeff (via email):
Just a clarification. The scene I was talking about had
us as the audience in the Architect's office. We see Neo and
the Agents in the interrogation room. We then pass through
the screen into the room.
It having been a while since I've seen the film,
and having missed seeing it at Jeff's, my memory was a bit hazy
