V for Vendetta

V: VoilĂ ! 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 it 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 vanguarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition. 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. 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'm quite sure they will say so.

Evey Hammond: Who...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: I can see that.
V: Of course you can. I'm not questioning your powers of observation, I'm merely remarking on the paradox of asking a masked man who he is.

V: Remember, remember, the fifth of November, The gunpowder treason and plot. I know of no reason why the gunpowder treason should ever be forgot.

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

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

Creedy: We have guns!
V: No, what you have are bullets.

V: When all your bullets are gone, I better not be standing, because you'll all be dead before you reload.

Evey: My father used to tell me that artists use lies to tell the truth while politicans use them to cover the truth up.
V: A man after my own heart.

Evey Hammond: I don't want you to die.
V: That is the most beautiful thing you could have ever given me.

Evey: You killed...? Oh my god.
V: You're upset.
Evey: I'm upset? You just said you killed Lewis Prothero.
V: I might have killed the Fingermen that attacked you, but I heard no objections then.

V: But again, truth be told, if you're looking for the guilty you need only look into a mirror.

Delia Surridge: 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?
V: I have not come for what you hoped to do. I've come for what you did.

Evey Hammond: Are you a Muslim?
Gordon Deitrich: No. I'm in television.

Evey: I don't want to hear any more of your lies.
V: Your own father said that artists use lies to tell the truth. Yes, I created a lie, but because you believed it, you found out something true about yourself.

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

Evey Hammond: You're getting back at them for what they did to you?
V: What they did to me was monstrous.
Evey Hammond: And they created a monster.

BTN News Poppet: Now, this is only an initial report, but at this time, it's believed that during this heroic raid, the terrorist was shot and killed.
Little girl: Bollocks.

Valerie: I remember how the meaning of words began to change. How unfamiliar words like "collateral" and "rendition" became frightening, while things like Norsefire and the Articles of Allegiance became powerful. I remember how "different" became dangerous. I still don't understand it, why they hate us so much.

[The news has just reported the death of Lewis Prothero.]
Evey: Did you have anything to do with this?
V: Yes, I killed him.

Evey Hammond: And you're going to make that happen by blowing up a building?
V: The building is a symbol. As is the act of destroying it. Alone a symbol is meaningless. But with enough people, blowing up a building can change the world.

Trivia

In the scene where Evey gets her hair cut, it was Natalie Portman's real hair they cut. They had only one shot to capture that scene, and everybody was quite nervous if the scene would turn out usable.
