New Earth - S2-E4

The Face of Boe: I have grown tired with the universe, Doctor, but you have taught me to look at it anew.
Doctor: There are legends you know, saying that you're millions of years old.
The Face of Boe: There are? That would be impossible.
Doctor: Wouldn't it just? I got the impression... There was something you wanted to tell me...
The Face of Boe: A great secret.
Doctor: So the legend says.
The Face of Boe: It can wait.
Doctor: Oh, does it have to?
The Face of Boe: We shall meet again, Doctor, for the third time... For the last time... And the truth shall be told. Until that day...
[He teleports himself away.]
Doctor: That is enigmatic. That...that is...that is textbook enigmatic.

The Christmas Invasion - S2-E2

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!

The Christmas Invasion - S2-E2

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.

The Parting of the Ways (2) - S1-E13

Doctor: Rose...Before I go, I just wanna tell you, you were fantastic. Absolutely fantastic. And d'you know what? So was I.

The Empty Child (1) - S1-E9

Rose: What's the emergency?
The Doctor: It's mauve.
Rose: 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.

Aliens of London (1) - S1-E4

The Doctor: I can't believe I'm here to see this! This is fantastic!
Rose: Did you know this was going to happen?
The Doctor: Nope!
Rose: Do you recognize the ship?
The Doctor: Nope!
Rose: Do you know why it crashed?
The Doctor: Nope!
Rose: Oh, I'm so glad I've got you.

The Sontaran Stratagem (1) - S4-E4

Doctor: Name?
Skarl: General Skarl of the tenth Sontaran battle fleet. Skarl the undefeated!
Doctor: Oh that's no good, what if you get defeated? Skarl the not-quite-so-undefeated-any-more-but-never-mind?

Day of the Moon - S6-E3

River: What are you doing?
Doctor: Helping.
River: You have a screwdriver. Go build a cabinet!
Doctor: That's really rude.


The Doctor Falls - S10-E13

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 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)

More I Am Dina quotes

The Rider: A thousand years of waiting and what was there to show? Nothing! Nothing but a boy who could not do what was asked of him. Generations of hope and promise, all a waste.

Will Stanton: I'm not afraid to die. I'm not afraid to die.
The Rider: Who says it's you?
