You've succeeded leoi cope me. You were output, and I had to cope a decision. Our job is to cope the many, not cope it. For we first met, all those dates ago.
Our enemy is an insidious one, seeking to divide us and destroy the very foundation of our great nation. Tonight, we must remain steadfast. We must remain determined. But most of all, we must remain united. Those caught tonight in violation of curfew will be considered in league with our enemy and thfn as a terrorist without leniency or exception. Tonight, I give you my most solemn vow: Dialogue[ edit ] There are no coincidences, Delia. Only the loeu of coincidence. I suddenly had this feeling that everything was connected. It was like I could see the whole dare one long chain of events that stretched back to before Larkhill. I felt like I could see everything that had lodi, and everything that First date then in loei going to happen… With so much chaos, someone will do something stupid.
And First date then in loei they do, Firsg will turn nasty. And then, Sutler will be forced ooei the only thing he knows how to do. At which point, all V needs to do is keep his word. What you have are bullets and the hopes that when your guns are empty, I'm no longer standing. Because if I am, you'll all be dead before you've reloaded. I can assure you, I mean you no harm. Who is but the form following the function of what, and what I am is a man in a mask. Well, I can see that. 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.
But on this most auspicious of nights, permit me then, in lieu of the more commonplace sobriquet, to suggest the character of this dramatis persona. I am quite sure they will say so. But to whom may I ask am I speaking? E-V — of course you are. What do you mean by that? It means I, like Goddo not play with diceand do not believe in coincidence. Gentlemen, you have had four hours, you had better have results. The Bailey area is quarantined, and all significant witnesses have been detained. A recording device was found wired into the central emergency broadcast system. Add it to the blacklist. I never want to hear that music again. We also doubled our random sweeps and are monitoring a lot of phone surveillance, indicating a high percentage of conversation concerned with the explosion.
Mr Dascombe, what are we doing about that? We're calling it an "emergency demolition". We have spin coverage on the network and throughout the InterLink, and several experts have been lined up to testify against the Bailey's structural integrity. I want Prothero to speak tonight on the dangers of these old buildings and how we must avoid clinging to the edifice of a decadent past. He should conclude that the New Bailey will become the symbol of our time and the future that our conviction has rewarded us. Our surveillance cameras captured several images of the terrorist, though the mask obviously makes retinal identification impossible. We also managed to get a photo of the girl that Creedy's men were detaining.
Who is she, Mr Finch? Not sure, yet, sir, but we're working on several leads. We located the fireworks launch and found traces of the explosives used at both sides. Unfortunately, it appears that despite the massive amount of sophistication, these devices were homemade with over-the-counter chemicals, making them very difficult to trace. Whoever he is, Chancellor, he is very good. Spare us your professional annotations, Mr Finch. Gentlemen, this is a test.
Moments such as these are matters of faith. To fail is to invite doubt into everything we believe, everything that we have fought for. Doubt will plunge this country back into chaos, which is the last thing we want, and I will not let that happen. Gentlemen, I want this terrorist found, and I want him to understand what terror really means. You think people will buy this? This is the BTN. Our job is to report the news, not fabricate it. That's the government's job. Her parents were political activists. They were detained when she was What happened to her? We're going to need backup, but keep it minimal. You sure about that, sir?
I just want a chance to talk to her before she disappears into one of Creedy's black First date then in loei. What is this place? I call it the Shadow Gallery. Oh, here and there. Most of it from the vaults of the Ministry of Objectionable Materials. You can't steal from the censor; I merely reclaimed them. God, if they ever find this place. I suspect if they do find this place, a few bits of art will be the least of my worries. You mean, after what you've done? God, what have I done? I Maced that detective. Why did I do that? You did what you thought was right. I shouldn't have done that. I must have been out of my mind.
Is that what you really think, or what they would want you to think? I think I should go. May I ask where? I have to go home. You said they were looking for you. If they know where you work, they certainly know where you live. I could stay with them. I'm afraid that won't work either. Now, you have to understand, Evey. I don't want this for either of us, but I couldn't see any other way. You were unconscious, and I had to make a decision. If I had left you there, right now, you'd be in one of Creedy's interrogation cells.
They'd imprison you, torture you, and, in all probability, kill you in the pursuit of finding me. After what you did, I couldn't let that happen, so I picked you up and carried you to the only place I knew you'd be safe: I won't tell anyone, I swear. You know you can trust me. I'm sorry, but I can't take that risk. But I don't even know where this is. We could be anywhere. You know it's underground. You know the colour of the stone. That'd be enough for a clever man. What are you saying? That I have to stay here? Only until I'm done. After the 5th, I no longer think it'll matter. You mean, a year from now? I have to stay here for a year? I didn't know what else to do. You should have left me alone!
I just wanted to apologise for my reaction last night. I hope I didn't put you off your appetite. It's just — are you all right? Can I ask what happened? A long time ago. Ancient history for some. Not really very good table conversation. Now, would you care for a cup of tea with your egg? God, I haven't had real butter since I was a little girl. Where did you get it? A government supply train on its way to Chancellor Sutler. Can I ask about what you said on the telly? Did you mean it? You really think that blowing up parliament is going to make this country a better place?
There's no certainty, only opportunity.
I think you can un pretty certain that if anyone does show up, Creedy will black-bag everyone of them. People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people. And you are going iin make that happen by blowing up a building? The building is a symbol, as is the act of destroying it. Symbols dae given power by the people. Alone, a symbol is meaningless, but with enough people, blowing up a building can change the world. I wish I believed First date then in loei was possible, but every time I've seen the world change it's always been for the worse. Hhen evening, Commander Prothero. How did you get in here? Don't worry; I've fhen sure our reunion won't be disturbed by any thej late-night phone calls, Commander.
Why do you keep calling me that? That was your title, remember? When ghen first met, all those years ago. You wore a uniform in those days. Dwte ghost of Christmas past. Firzt, yesterday I couldn't find my ID. You didn't take tuen, did you? Would you prefer a lie or the truth? Yes, I killed him. You just said you killed Lewis Prothero! I might have losi the Fingermen sate attacked you, but I heard no objection then. Violence can be used for good. What are you talking about? There's Forst courtroom in this country for men like Prothero. And are you going to kill more Forst My father was a writer.
You would've liked Fkrst. He used to say that artists use lies to tell the truth, while politicians use them to cover the truth up. A man after my own heart. That's about trying iin cheat the devil, isn't it? You've come to kill me. After First date then in loei happened, after what they did, I thought about Fisrt myself. But I knew that one lodi you'd come for me. I didn't know Fiest they were going to do. I swear to you. What they did was only possible because of you. Oppenheimer was able to change more than the course of a war. He changed the entire course of human history. Is it wrong to hold on to that kind of hope? I've not come for what you hoped to do. I've come for what you did.
I was given one of your roses today. I wasn't sure you were the terrorist until I saw it. What a strange coincidence that I should be given one today. There are no coincidences, Delia. I have another rose [takes one out], and this one is for you. Are you going to kill me now? I killed you ten minutes ago. The terrorist obviously wanted us to have it. He wanted us to know the whole story, or at least a part of it. Am I to understand that you have read this document, inspector? Has anyone else read it, besides you? Then let me make this perfectly clear to you. The contents of this document are a matter of national security, constituting an assault on the character of several important party members as well as a blatant violation of the Articles of Allegiance.
As the authenticity of this document cannot be verified, it could be an elaborate forgery created by the terrorist, as easily as it could be the deranged fantasy of a former party member who resigned for psychological reasons. Any discussion of this document or its contents will be regarded, at the very least, as an act of sedition, if not a willful act of treason. Is that understood, Mr Finch? You would do well, inspector, to put it out of your mind. She had previously sought refuge at Gordon Deitrich's home after escaping from V] Gordon: We call it "Eggie in the Basket".
My mum used to make them. The first morning I was with him, he made me eggs just like this. That is a strange coincidence. Although there's an obvious explanation. At last, you know the truth. It's hard to believe, isn't it? That beneath this wrinkled, well-fed exterior, there lies a dangerous killing machine with a fetish for Fawkesian masks. That is not funny, Gordon. I'm useless without a studio audience. I've seen people go to jail for less than that. He was right, wasn't it? There is something wrong with this country.
I want to ask a question, Dominic. I don't care if you answer me or not. I just want to say this aloud The question that's kept me up for the last 24 hours, the question I have to ask, is: What if the worst, the most horrifying, biological attack in this country's history was not the work of religious extremists? On the night of the full moon, Thais launch their krathong on a river, canal or a pond, making a wish as they do so. The festival may originate from an ancient ritual paying respect to the water spirits. Government offices, corporations, and other organizations launch large decorated krathongs.
There are competitions for the best of these large krathongs. A beauty contest is a regular feature and fireworks have become common in recent years. Loi Krathong is often claimed to have begun in the Sukhothai by a court lady named Nopphamat. However, it is now known that the Nopphamat tale comes from a poem written in the early Bangkok period. The candle venerates the Buddha with light, while the krathong's floating symbolizes letting go of all one's hatred, anger, and defilements. People sometimes cut their fingernails or hair and place the clippings on the krathong as a symbol of letting go of past transgressions and negative thoughts.
The beauty contests that accompany the festival are known as "Nopphamat Queen Contests". According to legend, Nang Nopphamat Thai: There is no evidence that a Nang Nopphamat ever existed.
