The Prisoner demanded that he’s not a number, he’s a free man! Well I don’t know why he refuses to wear his number. He has been numbered before, with his code number ZM73! He was also defiant by saying that he will not be pushed, filed, stamped, briefed, de-briefed, or numbered! Meaning he will no longer be pushed around by others, but unfortunately he was filed away in that grey filing cabinet marked RESIGNED in that huge room filled with identical filing cabinets. Stamped, perhaps meaning not to conform. He will not be briefed, well that one was clearly thrown out with the babies bath water, when the Prisoner was briefed on the Village during that aerial tour of said place. As for being de-briefed, well that happened when the Prisoner was asked over to No.2’s residence for breakfast. And as for not being numbered, well he was, and it was the Supervisor who first gave Six his number during that first impromptu escape attempt by Mini-Moke!
Poor old Number Six, for most of the time he refused to wear or acknowledge his number, only doing so on the occasions when it suited him. Mind you circumstances alter cases! He might not have wanted to be numbered Number 6, but my god he soon changed his tune that time when Number Two was trying to take both his identity and number away from him. He soon began to protest that he is Number 6 then right enough!
Be seeing you
