Number 6: I will not make any deals with you. I've resigned. I will not be pushed, filed, stamped, indexed, briefed, debriefed or numbered. My life is my own. I resign.
Number Two: [about The Prisoner] He's an individual, and they're always trying.
[over the opening of each episode - Number 2 played by various actors]
Number 6: Where am I?
Number 2: In the Village.
Number 6: What do you want?
Number 2: We want information.
Number 6: Whose side are you on?
Number 2: That would be telling. We want information... information... information.
Number 6: You won't get it.
Number 2: By hook or by crook, we will.
Number 6: Who are you?
Number 2: The new Number 2.
Number 6: Who is Number 1?
Number 2: You are Number 6.
Number 6: I am not a number, I am a free man.
The Double: The trouble with science is that it can be perverted.
Labour Exchange Manager: Good, you are honest. That is of use. Honesty attracts confidence, and confidence is our core of our business. See how honest I am being with you?
Number 6: Bad habit of mine, playing with lighters. I'll probably start a fire one day.
Number 6: If I knew where I was sailing from I could calculate where I was sailing to.
Number 6: Last week, Number 14 was an old lady in a wheelchair. You're new here, and you're one of them.
Number 6: I also have a problem. I'm not sure which side runs this Village.
Number 6: Unlike me, many of you have accepted the situation of your imprisonment, and will die here like rotten cabbages.
Woman: [Tearfully] How can you doubt me?
Number 6: It's easy, and I'm waterproof; a little drizzle won't wash away my doubt.
