Quoted from yzfguy:
there. is. no. shooter. rod.
YZFGuy: Do not try and plunge the ball. That's impossible. Instead... only try to realize the truth.
Neo: What truth?
YZFGuy: There is no shooter rod.
Neo: There is no shooter rod?
YZFGuy: Then you'll see, that it is not the shooter rod that shoots the ball, it is the button.
