Movie Quotes

V:
[Evey pulls out her mace] I can assure you I mean you no harm.
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 Hammond:
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.
Evey Hammond:
Oh. Right.
V:
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.
V:
Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a by-gone vexation, stands vivified and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin van-guarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition.
[carves V into poster on wall]
V:
The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous.
[giggles]
V:
Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it's my very good honor to meet you and you may call me V.
Evey Hammond:
Are you like a crazy person?
V:
I am quite sure they will say so. But to whom, might I ask, am I speaking with?
Evey Hammond:
I'm Evey.
V:
Evey? E-V. Of course you are.
Evey Hammond:
What does that mean?
V:
It means that I, like God, do not play with dice and I don't believe in coincidences.
