The Prisoner is very quotable. These are some of the more famous quips from the show.

Number 6Number 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 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!
Number 6: Who is Number 1?
Number 2: You are, Number 6.
Number 6: I am not a Number. I am a person.

Number 6: Everybody votes for a dictator.

The Admiral: We're all pawns.

Charles Curtis: The only trouble with science is that it can be perverted.

The Professor's Wife: One learns only when the mind wants to and not at set times.
Number 6: I am not a Number. I am a person.

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.

The Professor's Wife: Construction arises out of the ashes of destruction.

Engadine: Men always evade questions. All my husbands did.

Number 6: If I knew where I was sailing from I could calculate where I was sailing to.
Number 2 is describing the Village.
Number 2: What in fact has been created? An international community. A perfect blueprint for world order. When the sides facing each other suddenly realise that they're looking into a mirror, they'll see that this is the pattern for the future.
Number 6: The whole world as the Village?
Number 2: That is my dream. What's yours?
Number 6: To be the first man on the moon.

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.

Villager: [first time line is spoken] Be seeing you.

Villager: It's very cosmopolitan. You never know who you'll meet next.

Number 2: [Shouting] Why, why, why did you resign?

Number 6: Be seeing you.

Number 6: Unlike me, many of you have accepted the situation of your imprisonment, and will die here like rotten cabbages.

Number 48: Thanks for the trip, dad.
