Amy: So you were right. No new paintings. We didn't make a difference at all.
The Doctor: I wouldn't say that. The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. Hey. The good things don't always soften the bad things, but vice versa, the bad things don't necessarily spoil the good things or make them unimportant. And we definitely added to his pile of good things.

[Van Gogh overhears conversation.]
The Doctor: But I just wondered, between you and me, in a hundred words, where do you think Van Gogh rates in the history of art?
Dr. Black, museum curator: Well, um, big question. But, to me, Van Gogh is the finest painter of them all. Certainly the most popular, great painter of all time. The most beloved. His command of color the most magnificent. He transformed the pain of his tormented life into ecstatic beauty. Pain is easy to portray, but to use your passion and pain to portray the ecstasy and joy and magnificence of our world, no one had ever done it before. Perhaps no one ever will again. To my mind, that strange, wild man who roamed the fields of Provence was not only the world's greatest artist, but also one of the greatest men who ever lived.

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. Except that implies, in this big grand scheme of Gods and Devils, that she's just a victim. But I've seen a lot of this universe. I've seen fake gods and bad gods and demi-gods and would-be gods - out of all that - out of that whole pantheon - if I believe in one thing... Just one thing... I believe in her.
Eleventh Doctor: Gentlemen, we're ready. [Straightens bow-tie, throws lever on his TARDIS console.] Geronimo!
Tenth Doctor: [Theatrically throws lever on his TARDIS console.] Allons-y!
War Doctor: [Works controls on his TARDIS console, disgusted.] Oh, for God's sake! Gallifrey stands!

Ambrose: [Talking about the church door.] I can't open it. It keeps sticking, the wood's warped.
The Doctor: Any time you want to help?
Rory Williams: Can't you sonic it?
The Doctor: It doesn't do wood.
Rory Williams: That is rubbish!
The Doctor: Oi! Don't diss the sonic!
Doctor: Pfft... I'd have to settle down. In a house or something, a proper house with... With... With... With doors and things. Carpets! Me! Living in a house! Now that... That is terrifying.
Rose: You'd have to get a mortgage.
Rose: Oh yes.
Doctor: I am dying. That's it. I am dying, it is all over.
Elton: But what I wanted to say is... You know, when you're a kid, they tell you it's all, grow up. Get a job. Get married. Get a house. Have a kid, and that's it. Ah. But the truth is, the world is so much stranger than that. It's so much darker. And so much madder...And so much better.
[The Doctor, Capt. Jack and Rose are cornered by the empty children.]
The Doctor: Go to your room. Go to your room! I mean it. I'm very, very angry with you. I'm very, very cross! Go to your room! [The children lurch away.] I'm really glad that worked. Those would have been terrible last words.
War Doctor: Anyone lose a fez?
Tenth Doctor: You! How can you be here? More to the point, why are you here?
War doctor: Good afternoon. I'm looking for the Doctor.
Tenth Doctor: Well, you've certainly come to the right place.
War Doctor: Good. Right. Who are you boys? Oh, of course, are you his companions?
Eleventh Doctor: His companions?!
War Doctor: They get younger all the time. Well, if you could point me in the general direction of the Doctor...
[Tenth Doctor raises his sonic, and then Eleventh Doctor raises his.]
War Doctor: Really?
Eleventh Doctor: Yeah.
Tenth Doctor: Really.
War Doctor: You're me? Both of you?
Tenth Doctor: Yup!
War Doctor: [nods disbelief toward the Eleventh Doctor, as he looks at Tenth Doctor.] Even that one?
Eleventh Doctor: Yes!
War Doctor: You're my future selves?
Tenth Doctor and Eleventh Doctor: [in unison.] YES!
War Doctor: Am I having a mid-life crisis?

Emperor Dalek: Explain yourself.
The Doctor: I said no.
Emperor Dalek: What is the meaning of this negative?
The Doctor: It means no!
Emperor Dalek: But she will be destroyed!
The Doctor: No! 'Cause this is what I'm gonna do - I'm gonna rescue her! I'm gonna save Rose Tyler from the middle of the Dalek fleet, and then I'm gonna save the Earth, and then - just to finish you off - I'm gonna wipe every last stinking Dalek out of the sky!
Emperor Dalek: But you have no weapons, no defences, no plan!
The Doctor: Yeah, and doesn't that scare you to death?
Sarah-Jane: I had no problem with space stuff. I saw things you wouldn't believe.
Rose: Try me.
Rose: I've met ghosts.
Sarah-Jane: Robots. Lots of robots.
Rose: Slitheen. In Downing Street.
Rose: Met the Emperor.
Sarah-Jane: Anti-Matter monsters.
Rose: Gas masked zombies.
Sarah-Jane: Real living dinosaurs!
Rose: Real living werewolf!
Sarah-Jane: The Loch Ness Monster!
[Mickey has his finger on a button on the console.]
The Doctor: Um... What're you doing that for?
Mickey: 'Cause you told me to.
The Doctor: When was that?
Mickey: About half an hour ago.
The Doctor: Um. You can let go now.
Mickey: Well, how long's it been since I could've stopped?
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.
Rose: Will it... That thing... Is it trapped for good? On video?
Doctor: Hope so. Just to be on the safe side though, I'll use my unrivaled knowledge of trans temporal extirpation methods to neutralise the residual electronic pattern.
Rose: You what?
Doctor: I'm going to tape over it.
Doctor: Fear. Loneliness. They're the big ones, Rose. Some of the most terrible acts ever committed have been inspired by them. We're not dealing with something that wants to conquer or destroy. There's a lot of things you need to get across this universe. Warp drive... Wormhole refractors...You know the thing you need most of all? You need a hand to hold.
War Doctor: There's still a billion billion Daleks up there attacking
Eleventh Doctor: Yeah there is, there is.
Tenth Doctor: But there's something those billion billion Daleks don't know
Eleventh Doctor: Because if they did they'd probably send for reinforcements
Clara: What? What don't they know?
Eleventh Doctor: This time there's three of us.

Rose: But, it's like...think about it, though. Christmas. 1860. Happens once. Just once, and it's gone. It's finished. It'll never happen again. Except for you. You can go back and see days that are dead and gone and a hundred thousand sunsets ago. No wonder you never stay still.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
Doctor: [in a Scottish accent.] Oh, I'm - I'm dazed and confused. I've been chasing this... This wee naked child over hill and over dale. In't that right, ya... Timorous beastie?
Rose: [in a bad Scottish accent.] Ooch, aye! I've been oot and aboot.
Doctor: No, don't do that.
Rose: Hoots mon!
Doctor: No, really don't. Really.
Queen Victoria: I rewarded you Sir Doctor. And now you are exiled from this empire, never to return. I don't know what you are, the two of you, or where you're from, but I know that you consort with stars - and magic - and think it fun. But your world is steeped in terror and blasphemy and death and I will not allow it. You will leave this shores and you will reflect, I hope, on how you managed to stray so far from all that is good. And how much longer you may survive this... Terrible life. Now leave my world and never return.
Lumic: What is your name?
Doctor: I'm the Doctor.
Lumic: A redundant title. Doctors need not exist. Cybermen never sicken.
Doctor: Yeah, but that's it! That's exactly the point! Oh, Lumic, you're a clever man...I'd call you a genius, except I'm in the room. But everything you've invented, you did to fight your sickness. And that's brilliant. That is so human. But once you get rid of sickness and mortality, then what's there to strive for? Eh? The Cybermen won't advance. You'll just stop! You'll stay like this forever. A metal Earth with metal men and metal thoughts. Lacking the one thing that makes this planet so alive. People. Ordinary, stupid, brilliant people.
Doctor: So, when it comes right down to it, why did you come here? Why did you do that? Why? I'll tell you why. Because it was there. Brilliant. Excuse me, ah, Zach, wasn't it?
Zach: That's me.
Doctor: Just stand there, 'cause I'm gonna hug you. Is that all right?
Zach: I s'pose so.
Doctor: Here we go. Coming in.
[He hugs Zach.]
Doctor: Ahh, human beings, you are amazing! Ha!
[He releases Zach.]
Doctor: Thank you.
Zach: Not at all.
Doctor: But apart from that, you're completely mad. You should pack your bags and get back in that ship and fly for your lives.
Rose: Really though, Doctor, tell me, who are you?
The Doctor: Do you know, like we were saying, about the Earth revolving? It's like when you were a kid, the first time they tell you that the world's turning and you just can't quite believe it because it looks like it's standing still. I can feel it. The turn of the Earth. The ground beneath our feet is spinning at a thousand miles an hour, the entire planet is hurtling around the sun at sixty-seven thousand miles an hour, and I can feel it. We're falling through space, you and me, clinging to the skin of this tiny little world, and if we let go... That's who I am. Now forget me, Rose Tyler. Go home.
Rose: [Seeing cat.] Oh! Aren't you a beautiful boy?
The Doctor: Thanks. I've been experimenting with back-combing...oh.
Rose: [Seeing him grimace.] What?
The Doctor: Nah, I'm not really a cat person. Once you've been threatened by one in a nun's wimple, it kind of takes the joy out of it.
Kel: You just took a council axe from a council van, and now you're digging up a council road! I'm reporting you to the council! [Rose finds the Isolus pod.]
Rose: It went for the hottest thing in the street: your tar!
Kel: What is it?
Rose: It's a spaceship! Not a council spaceship, I'm afraid.
