The "V Speech" from V for Vendetta

V: Voilà! 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 van-guarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition.
[carves V into 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.
[giggles]
V: Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it is my very good honor to meet you and you may call me V.
Evey Hammond: Are you like a crazy person?
V: I'm quite sure they will say so.

What happened to the part:"as the once vital voice of the versillimitude, who now venerates what they once villified"? Right after the "now vacant vanished" part

I think the above Anon is confusing this first speech with his second over the TV.

I don't think I'll ever be able to fully memorise the whole speech. I love the movie, and everything to do with it. I know it's not exactly part of the speech, but I love this bit:

Evey Hammond: Are you like a crazy person?

V: I am quite sure they will say so.
