This page not only finally had Jocelyn called Gadget Girl. It also said which episode of Gadgetinis her partner comes from. Yes, the episode named The Patrix was a clear joke stab at The Matrix. The character Patrick is going off of was that episode's take on Morpheus which didn't have a name. Patrick as you can now tell in the first 5 first letters, comes from the episode name. As far as last name goes. During the episode, Gadget is convinced he is doing some form of gardening job. I thought it would be a cute piece of trivia from this to give Patrick the last name Gardener. As for Patrick sounding off his rocker a little in believing in somethings he shouldn't. That goes all the way back to a website I don't remember it's name. I can't remember how I stumbled across this site. I don't even like the fandom after the first movie. But some how back in likely '02, I ran across a site boosting an absurd conspiracy theory that the matrix idea was real life. When inventing Patrick's character, I thought it felt fitting he'd be the type of person who'd believe such nonsense.
