I, like God, do not play with dice and do not believe in coincidence.

The time has come for me to meet my maker and to repay him in kind for all that he has done.

You wear a mask for so long, you forget who you were beneath it.

Gordon Deitrich

At last, we finally meet. I have something for you, Chancellor; a farewell gift. For all the things you've done, for all that you might've done, and for the only thing you have left. Good-bye, Chancellor.

Delia Surridge: Is it too late to ask for forgiveness?
V: Never.
Delia Surridge: I'm sorry.

Everyone remembers what happened that night and what it meant for this country. But I will always remember the man and what he meant to me.

Creedy: Die! Die! Why won't you die?... Why won't you die?
V: Beneath this mask there is more than flesh. Beneath this mask there is an idea, Mr. Creedy, and ideas are bulletproof.

...A building is a symbol, as is the act of destroying it. Symbols are given power by people. A symbol, in and of itself is powerless, but with enough people behind it, blowing up a building can change the world.

People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.

We are told to remember the idea, not the man. Because a man can fail. He can becaught, he can be killed and forgotten. But four hundred years later an idea can still change the world. I've witnessed firsthand the power of ideas. I've seen people kill in the name of them; and die defending them. But you cannot touch an idea, cannot hold it or kiss it. An idea does not bleed, it cannot feel pain, and it does not love. And it is not an idea that I miss, it is a man. A man who made me remember the fifth of November. A man I will never forget.

Evey Hammond

Remember, Remember
The fifth of November,
The gunpowder treason and plot.
I know of no reason
Why the gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot.

No, what you have are bullets, and the hope that when your guns are empty, I'm no longer standing, because if I am... you'll all be dead before you've reloaded.
