Not a number.

My post yesterday (and a lovely new icon from queenbamfie!) left me in a nostalgic mood for The Prisoner. So my quotes for the day are my very favorites from that series.


The Prisoner: I will not be pushed, filed, stamped, indexed, briefed, debriefed, or numbered! My life is my own.
- from the episode "Arrival"


Number 240: I have my duty.
The Prisoner: To whom?
Number 240: To everyone. It's the rules: of the people, by the people, for the people.
The Prisoner: Takes on a new meaning.
Number 240: You're a wicked man.
The Prisoner: Wicked?
Number 240: You have no values.
The Prisoner: Different values.
Number 240: You won't be helped.
The Prisoner: Destroyed.
Number 240: You want to spoil things.
The Prisoner: I won't be a goldfish in a bowl.
Number 240: I must go... I may see you later?
The Prisoner: Can you avoid it?
- from the episode "Dance of the Dead"


No.2: Are you going to run?
No.6: Like the blazes, first chance I get.
No.2: No, I meant run for office?
- from the episode "Free For All"
