Shopkeeper: You crack me up, Six.

Six: But you know my...
Shopkeeper: Welcome to the Village. Everybody knows everybody. Be seein' ya! 

Six: Well... I want out.
Two: You tried that! There is no "out." There is only "in."

Two: A man with nothing to hide, is a man with nothing to find.

Six: I will find a way to escape! Do you hear me? I am not a number! I'm a free man! 

Six: What is it they want from me? They must have told you something.

16: My head is so confused with confusion. I... I don't even know if what I just told you is true or not.
