    • Number Six: Who are you? Watchmaker's Daughter: I'm a number, just like you. Does it matter which? Number Six: How'd you get in? Watchmaker's Daughter: The door was open. Number Six: Always is... to them, isn't it? Watchmaker's Daughter: But I'm not one of them. Number Six: No. What do you want? Watchmaker's Daughter: Help. Number Six: Go to the Town Hall. The Citizens' Council promises help and advice for everyone. Watchmaker's Daughter: Their Citizen's Council. Number Six: As far as I'm concerned, what's theirs is yours. Watchmaker's Daughter: I am not one of them. Number Six: No... no one is.

    • Watchmaker's Daughter: You mean you'll condescend to listen? Number Six: I'll listen, as long as what you're saying doesn't become too obviously phony, yes.

    • Watchmaker's Daughter: This concerns the welfare of everybody in this Village. Number Six: And welfare is our biggest consumer item, yes?

    • Computer Attendant: Good morning--I've brought you the activities prognosis you ordered. New Number Two: Oh, good--how accurate are these? What is the percentage of right and wrong? Computer Attendant: I'm afraid we don't know that. New Number Two: Why not? Computer Attendant: Well, twice we programmed our machines for a percentile appraisal of their own efficiencies. Each time they refused to give back the requested information. New Number Two: Refused? How? Computer Attendant: Simply by not returning the data to us. New Number Two: They'll be wanting their own trade union next.

    • Number Six: They should have told you there are some unhappy people here. New Number Two: Yes, well, I have seen the list of malcontents. But it might interest you to know that you happen to be top of the bill. Number Six: I'll do my best to live up to it.
