We draw your attention... to the regrettable bullet
If there is a single episode of a TV show that I can quote the most lines from, it's undoubtedly the final episode of The Prisoner.
Partly it's because it's full of dialogue that is both totally nonsensical and utterly profound, with a delivery that ramps up the pomp and theatricality to absurd degrees.
But it's mainly because that episode was my go-to thing to watch when I got back from parties or the pub, and needed something to come down to while completely shitfaced on cider and vodka. I thought I would feel happier as myself, but I was always happier repeating Number Six.
