Doctor: So, that's the trap. Or the test or the final judgment, I don't know. But if I kill you, I kill her.

The Doctor: Ten minutes? Twenty? ... Twenty-nine?
Mickey: You just forgot me!
The Doctor: No, no, no! I was just...I was just...I was calibrating. I was just...no, I know exactly what I'm doing.
