Nothing to be done, except



More fantastic than fantasy.

More real than reality.

The ultimate experience

is Infinisynth.

It's all been remade for you.

And it's anything

you want it to be.

It's your reality.

Let your dreams come true

in your very own world.

Hook in to the happiness system.

Relax, imagine, enjoy.

Hook in.


Judy, you don't know how

much of a fool you're being.

You don't even know what

you're fighting against.

Leave me alone.

Injustice? Everyone gets

exactly what they want.


You can be your own

God. Everything is...

Everything is fake! You're all

just lying to yourselves.

What will it take to

make you understand?

Just leave me alone!

Proximity. Excuse me.





Oh, Jenny, you're up.

Judy, Mom.

Judy's my name. You named

me that, remember?

Of course, dear.

That's what I said.

Are you hungry?


You're not feeling sick

or anything, are you?

Of course not.



I want to talk to you.

What are you doing off-line?

Why aren't you hooked in?

I was hooked in.

But it doesn't work anymore.

I just get hassled by the Sysop.

The Systems Operator,

he won't leave me alone.

So, I was sitting, just sitting,

listening to Dad's music.

And I don't know, I just

wanted to talk to someone.

Talk? Come on, now, dear.

This isn't your card.

It's Dad's!

My father, your husband?

Where did you get it?

I've had it for years. I felt...

Weren't we supposed to turn it

in or throw it out or something?



Mom, what happened to him?

Oh, well, you know, dear,

that was so long ago.

I don't see why you

should dwell on it.

Mom, tell me what

happened. I want to know.

There's nothing to tell.

I unplugged, and he was just gone.

He must have done it himself.

They never told me

exactly what he did.

Did you ask?


He wasn't happy

anyway, I knew that.

Such a sour man, really,

now that I think about it.

I'm not happy, either.

Just hook back in. You'll be fine.


I want to do something.

I want to go somewhere.

You can do whatever you want.

Go wherever you want.

I mean here.


There's nothing here.

That's why we have

Infinisynth, honey.


I'm awake, Mom.

I want to stay awake!

Wake up. Please.

Stop it! Can't you just stop it?

Wake up!

Mom. Mother.

Please wake up.

I need to talk to you.


I'll wake you up.

Time to wake up, Mom.

Wake up!

Judy, that's enough.

You're an exceptional girl, Judy.

You've managed to

violate the system.

You've entered the

environments of other users.

No one has ever done that before.

And I can't allow

it to happen again.

You must realize that your

actions have dire consequences.

What do you want from me?

I don't want anything.

I'm the Systems Operator.

The question is, what do you want?

I was only trying to get

through to someone.

We gave you everything.

Everything you could want.

Everything you could imagine.

I... I want something

real. Anything.


We're... We're stuck

inside our own heads.

It's worse than a

prison. It's nothing.

Nothing at all. Am I the

only one that can see that?

There has to be more.

More than you can imagine?

Yes. All I want is...

Is something real.

All right.

I'll give it to you.

I'm taking you offline.

What are you talking about?

It's what you wanted, isn't it?

The unimaginable.

Oh, God.

I didn't mean to really kill her!

No! Let me go!

Stop it! Stop!

Let me out of here!

Stop it, you're hurting me!

Who are you? Why are

you doing this?

Let me go!
