Quote For The Day

    "There are some people who talk, and some people who don't. Which means there are some people who leave this place, and those who don't leave, you are obviously staying."
    "Has it ever occurred to you that you're just as much a prisoner as I am?"
    "Ah my dear chap of course, I know too much, we're both lifers."
                                                      {Number 2 and Number 6 -The Chimes of Big Ben}
    It cannot be that Number 2 is like Number 6, a prisoner in The Village, because he is able to leave. You will recall how he was brought back to The Village in 'Once Upon A Time,' and how he wasn't at all happy about the situation. Being a "lifer" doesn't mean being a physical prisoner in The Village. But being a member of The Village whether in The Village or not. Cobb I expect he's a lifer, even though he was leaving The Village. The Colonel, Fotheringay, and possibly Nadia, might not they be former Prisoners of The Village, just as Number 2 {who resisted for so short a time} had once been, and like him are lifers because they work for The Village. So it is imaginable that the evacuation of The Village would have a wide and far reaching effect on more people than simply those citizens who were evacuated in 'Fall Out.'

Be seeing you
