Doc: Here’s a red-letter date in the history of science, November 5, 1955. Yes, of course, November 5, 1955.
Marty: What, I don’t get what happened.
Doc: That was the day I invented time travel. I remember it vividly. I was standing on the edge of my toilet hanging a clock, the porcelain was wet, I slipped, hit my head on the edge of the sink. And when I came to I had a revelation, a picture, a picture in my head, a picture of this.
November is better then October because Bonfire Night is better then Halloween. Halloween is just a party with costumes, Bonfire Night is a big fire with lots of fireworks, candy floss, toffee apples and fairs with rides plus those flashing sword thingys.
“But what of the man? I know his name was Guy Fawkes and I
know, in 1605, he attempted to blow up the Houses of Parliament. But who
was he really? What was he like? We are told to remember the idea, not
the man, because a man can fail. He can be caught, he can be killed and
forgotten, but 400 years later, an idea can still change the world. I’ve
witnessed first hand the power of ideas, I’ve seen people kill in the
name of them, and die defending them… but you cannot kiss an idea,
cannot touch it, or hold it… ideas do not bleed, they do not feel
pain, they do not love… And it is not an idea that I miss, it is a
man… A man that made me remember the Fifth of November. A man that I
will never forget.” | V For Vendetta (2005)
