Much is made of cabbages in 'the Prisoner,' or it seemed so at the time. In 'The General' Number 2 says "A brilliantly devised course, delivered by a leading teacher. Subliminally learned, checked, and corrected by an infallible authority..... and what have we got?"
Number 6 "A row of cabbages!"
Number 2 "Indeed. Knowledgable cabbages."
And in part of his opening electon speech in 'Free For All,' Number 6 said "Unlike me, many of you have accepted the situation of your imprisonment, and will die here like rotten cabbages."
So just how do "rotten cabbages" die?
Be seeing you
