V: Beneath this mask there is more than flesh. There is an idea, Mr. Creedy - and ideas are bulletproof.
Voilą! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This
visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is it vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation
of a by-gone vexation, stands vivified, and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin vanguarding vice and vouchsafing
the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition. The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive, not
in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous. Verily, this vichyssoise
of verbiage veers most verbose so let me simply add that it's my very good honor to meet you and you may call me V.
Hammond: Are you like a crazy person?
V: Remember, remember, the fifth of November,

Evey Hammond: And they created a monster.
The only reliable records in any government are tax records.
Evey Hammond: Who--who are you?
V: Who? Who is but the form following the function of what... and what I am is a man in a mask.
Hammond: I can see that.
V: Of course you can. I'm not questioning your powers of observation,
I'm merely remarking on the paradox of asking a masked man who he is.
Evey Hammond: My father
once told me that artists use lies to tell the truth, while politicians use lies to cover the truth up.
There is no such thing as coincidence, just the illusion of coincidence.
Delia Surridge: Are
you going to kill me now?
V: I killed you ten minutes ago while you slept.
Will there be pain?
Delia Surridge: Thank you. Is it meaningless to apologize?
Delia Surridge: I'm so sorry.
I don't want you to die.
V: That is the most beautiful thing you could have ever given me.
People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.
Gentlemen, I want this terrorist found... and I want him to understand what terror really means.
If our own government was responsible for the deaths of almost a hundred thousand people... would you really want to know?
What we need right now is a clear message to the people of this country. This message must be read in every newspaper, heard
on every radio, seen on every television... I want everyone to remember, why they need us!
