Evey Hammond is the true heroine of the movie, and it is through her eyes that we follow the story. She becomes simultaneously V’s point of vulnerability as he falls in love with her, but also his strength and motivation as she comes to represent the spark of latent humanity still unextinguished in the many inhabitants of the totalitarian state. With the (unwelcomed!) help of V, she undergoes an extraordinary personal transformation throughout the story, as she throws off the shackles of psychological oppression and starts to discover her true potential.

V For Vendetta Quotes

Evey encounters V for the very first time:

[Evey pulls out her mace]
V: I can assure you I mean you no harm.
Evey: Who are you?
V: Who? Who is but the form following the function of what and what I am is a man in a mask.
Evey: Well I can see that.
V: Of course you can. I’m not questioning your powers of observation; I’m merely remarking upon the paradox of asking a masked man who he is.
Evey: Oh. Right.
V: But on this most auspicious of nights, permit me then, in lieu of the more commonplace sobriquet, to suggest the character of this dramatis persona.
V: VoilĂ ! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a by-gone vexation, stands vivified and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin vanguarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition.
[carves "V" into poster on wall]
V: The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous.
V: [giggles]
V: Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it’s my very good honor to meet you and you may call me V.
Evey: Are you, like, a crazy person?
V: I am quite sure they will say so. But to whom, might I ask, am I speaking with?
Evey: I’m Evey.
V: Evey? E-V. Of course you are.
Evey: What does that mean?
V: It means that I, like God, do not play with dice and do not believe in coincidence. Are you hurt?

Evey’s observations on the power of words:

Evey: Artists use lies to tell the truth, while politicians use them to cover the truth up.

Evey tries to suss-out V while exploring his ‘lair’:

Evey: [reading inscription on mirror] Vi Veri Veniversum Vivus Vici…
V: “By the power of truth I, while living, have conquered the universe”.
Evey: Personal motto?
V: From Faust.
Evey: That’s about trying to cheat the devil, isn’t it?
V: It is.
