Doctor: These human beings. Consider their potential. From the day they arrive on the planet and blinking step into the sun. There is more to see than can ever be seen. More to do than - no, hold on...Sorry, that's 'The Lion King'. But the point still stands. Leave them alone!
Doctor: See, there's the thing. I'm the Doctor, but beyond that, I - I just don't know. I literally do not know who I am. It's all untested. Am I funny? Am I sarcastic? Sexy? Right old misery? Life and soul? Right-handed? Left-handed? A gambler? A fighter? A coward? A traitor? A liar? A nervous wreck? I mean, judging by the evidence, I've certainly got a gob.
Rose: What's the emergency?
The Doctor: It's mauve.
The Doctor: The universally recognized colour for danger.
Rose: What happened to red?
The Doctor: That's just humans. By everyone else's standards, red's camp. Oh, the misunderstandings. All those red alerts, all that dancing.
The Doctor: Winning? Is that what you think it's about? I'm not trying to win. I'm not doing this because I want to beat someone, or because I hate someone, or because I want to blame someone. It's not because it's fun. God knows it's not because it's easy. It's not even because it works because it hardly ever does. I do what I do because it's right! Because it's decent! And above all, it's kind! It's just that...just kind. If I run away today, good people will die. If I stand and fight, some of them might live. Maybe not many, maybe not for long. Hey, you know, maybe there's no point in any of this, at all, but it's the best I could do. So I'm going to do it. And I will stand here, doing it, till it kills me. You're going to die, too! Some day. How will that be? Have you thought about it? What would you die for? Who I am is where I stand. Where I stand...is where I fall. Stand with me. These people are terrified. Maybe we can help, a little. Why not, just at the end, just be kind? (00:33:55)Super Grover
Lord Azlok: You are not of this world. I hear two hearts beating.
The Doctor: Then note their rhythm. I'm not scared of you.
Arthur Eddington: If the cloud breaks quarter past two tomorrow, we look up into the heavens, take photographs of the eclipse, we will be scientists at our work. We'll be looking at the poetry of existence. And if Einstein's right, the Universe will never look the same again.
Jess: Then the policemen comes.
Abi: That was just a misunderstanding, sweetheart.
Doug: Sometimes when grown-ups discuss things very loudly, people will get the wrong ideas.
Mickey McLeod: He let me play with his taser.
Doug: Well, he didn't let ya.
Mickey McLeod: He didn't say I couldn't.
Jess: Does electricity feel nice, daddy?
Doug: No, not nice.
