It would appear that Number 6 will have to learn to smoke his brand of cigar right handed, and how to light one. Always use a match, never a cigarette lighter. But just a minute, whenever do we see Number 6 smoking cigars, and to have his favourite brand? This is the first and only time we see Number 6 attempting to smoke a cigar. He can’t of course because of the length of plastic running through it, that’s what makes Number 6 cough, as he discovers much later in the episode.
The thing is, is it Number 6 who smokes the cigars, or Curtis? Perhaps that’s an embellishment of his own which he added to his persona as Number 6. So why doesn’t Curtis join Number 6 is smoking a cigar, unless they all have a piece of plastic running through them. It’s curious, Curtis has a cigarette light, yet he never smokes. When Number 6 chokes on the cigar its almost as though he is the weaker Number 6, because he cannot smoke Number 6’s brand of cigar. And that makes Curtis’ Number 6 better, if not superior than the original. Perhaps that’s the way Curtis saw his impersonation of Number 6, not the economy pack at all, but bumper pack with 50 percent more!
Be seeing you
