Go To

Evey Hammond: 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.
Evey: Well I can see that.
V: Of course you can. I'm not questioning your powers of observation; I'm merely remarking upon the paradox of asking a masked man who he is.
After Evey and V meet for the first time

V "This Vicious Cabaret" (musical interlude to Part 2)

V: I am quite sure they will say so.

Are the wrongs righted? Are the rights restored?
V, MTV Movie Special


The other gay women here, Rita, died two weeks ago. I imagine I'll die quite soon. It's strange that my life should end in such a terrible place, but for three years I had roses and I apologized to nobody.
I shall die here. Every last inch of me shall perish. Except one.

I don't know who you are. Or whether you're a man or a woman. I may never see you or cry with you or get drunk with you. But I love you. I hope that you escape this place. I hope that the world turns and that things get better, and that one day people have roses again. I wish I could kiss you.
