Progress Report On Number Six
"Welcome to your home from home" the card read. But is '6 Private' as in the prisoner's home back in London? We cannot say, as we only see the hallway and the study. Obviously '6 Private' does not have a hallway, and the Prisoner's house in London is not in the least so open-plan as '6 private.' So I somehow don't think the rest of No.6's cottage is anything like his London home.
'Report on Number Six. Normal classification. On arrival subject showed shock symptoms, followed by accepted behaviour pattern. Since then has been unco-operative and distinctly aggressive. Attempted to escape. Subject proving exceptionally difficult, but in view of his importance, no extreme measures to be used yet.'
