    Default I am not a number

    I suggest reading at website

    I tried to post this from my phone and it was too small.

    http://en.m.wikiquote.org/wiki/The_Prisoner

    Introduction

    Number Six: Where am I?
    Number Two: In the Village.
    Number Six: What do you want?
    Number Two: Information.
    Number Six: Whose side are you on?
    Number Two: That would be telling. We want information… information… in formation.
    Number Six: You won't get it.
    Number Two: By hook or by crook, we will.
    Number Six: Who are you?
    Number Two: The new Number Two.
    Number Six: Who is Number One?
    Number Two: You are Number Six.
    Number Six: I am not a number! I am a free man!
    Number Two: [laughs]


    The Arrival [1.01]


    Number Six: 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!
    Number Two: Quite a beautiful place, really, isn't it? Almost like a world on its own.
    Number Six: I shall miss it when I'm gone.
    Number Two: Oh, it will grow on you.
    The Admiral: A game of chess, my dear.
    The Woman: I don't play.
    The Admiral: You should learn. We're all pawns, my dear.
    Sign: Questions are a burden to others; answers a prison for oneself.
    Number Six: I am not a number. I am a person.
    New Number Two: Six of one, half dozen of another.


    Free For All [1.02]


    Number Two: [on the phone] Any complaints?
    Number Six: Yes. I'd like to mind my own business.
    Number Two: So do we. Do you fancy a chat?
    Number Six: The mountain can come to Mohammad!
    ...
    Number Two: Mohammad?
    Number Six: Everest I presume.
    Number Two: I've never have had a head for heights.
    Number Six: Where's Number One?
    Number Two: At the summit.
    Number Six: Play it according to Hoyle?
    Number Two: All cards on the table. You may rely on that.
    Number Six: Whose move?
    Number Two: Yours only. Confide, and we concede.
    Number Six: Elections? In this place?
    Number Two: Of course--we make our choice every 12 months. Every citizen has a choice. Are you going to run?
    Number Six: Like blazes, the first chance I get.
    Number Two: I meant run for office.
    Number Six: Whose?
    Number Two: Mine, for instance.
    Number Six: You have a very delicate sense of humour.
    Number Two: Naturally. Humour is the very essence of a democratic society.
    Labour Exchange Manager: "Gave up sugar four years and three months ago on medical advice." That shows you're afraid.
    Number Six: What?
    Labour Exchange Manager: You're afraid of death.
    Number Six: I'm afraid of nothing.
    Labour Exchange Manager: You're afraid of yourself. You are aware of that? Good, you are honest. That is of use here. Honesty attracts confidence and confidences are the core of our business.
    Reporter: How will you handle your campaign?
    Number Six: No comment.
    Reporter: "Intends to fight for freedom at all costs."
    Photographer: Smile
    Reporter: How about your internal policy?
    Number Six: No comment.
    Reporter: "Will tighten up on Village security."
    Photographer: Smile!
    Reporter: What about your external policy?
    Number Six: No comment.
    Reporter: "Our exports will operate in every corner of the globe." How do you feel about life and death?
    Number Six: Mind your own business.
    Reporter: "No comment."
    Number Six: There are those who come in here and deny that we can supply every conceivable civilised amenity within our boundaries. You can enjoy yourselves and you will. You can partake of the most hazardous sports and you will. The price is cheap. All you have to do in exchange is give us information. You are then eligible for promotion to other and perhaps more attractive spheres. Where do you desire to go? What has been your dream? I can supply it. Winter, spring, summer or fall--they can all be yours at any time. Apply to me and it will be easier and better.


    Dance of the Dead [1.03]


    Number Six: I have a choice?
    Number Two: Of course. You can do as you want.
    Number Six: As long as it's what you want.
    Number Two: As long as it is what the majority wants. We're democratic. In some ways.
    Number Two: I'm sad, Number Six. I thought you were beginning to...
    Number Six: Give in?
    Number Two: Be happy. Everything you want is here.
    Number Six: Everything's elsewhere.
    Number Two: What were you looking at?
    Number Six: A light.
    Number Two: A star.
    Number Six: A boat.
    Number Two: An insect.
    Number Six: A plane.
    Number Two: A flying fish.
    Number Six: Somebody who belongs to my world.
    Number Two: This is your world. I am your world. If you insist on living a dream you may be taken for mad.
    Number Six: I like my dream.
    Number Two: Then you are mad.

    Damn straight you're not a number. You're a three letter acronym.

    Also: that show sounds like a rip off of The Trial
