The Impossible Astronaut

Amy: “At the personal intervention of the King, the unnamed doctor was incarcerated without trial in the Tower of London.”
Rory: Okay, but it doesn’t have to be him.
Amy: “According to contemporary accounts, two nights later a magical sphere some twenty feet across was seen floating away from the tower, carrying the mysterious doctor aloft.”
Rory: Okay. It’s him.
Amy: There’s more.

Amy: It’s like he’s being deliberately ridiculous, trying to attract our attention. {about Laurel and Hardy} Are we watching this again?
Rory: Yeah. I’ve explained the jokes. So what are you saying? You really think he’s back there trying to wave to us out of history books? {The Doctor appears on-screen and waves at them}.
Amy: It is the sort of thing he’d do.
Rory: Yeah, but why?
Amy: Well he said he’d be in touch.
Rory: Two months ago.
Amy: Two months is nothing. He’s up to something. I know he is. I know him.

Rory: What is it? Amy?
Amy: A date. A time. A map reference. I think it’s an invitation.
Rory: From who?
Amy: It’s not signed. Look. TARDIS blue.

Amy: This is it, yeah? Right place?
Rory: Uh. Nowhere. Middle of. Yeah. This is it.
The Doctor: Howdy.
Amy: Doctor!
The Doctor: It’s the Ponds!

Amy: Someone’s been a busy boy then, eh.
The Doctor: Did you see me?
Amy: Of course.
The Doctor: Stalker.
Amy: Flirt.
Rory: Husband.
The Doctor: And Rory the Roman!

Amy: Eleven hundred and three. You were nine hundred and eight last time I saw you.
The Doctor: And you’ve put on a couple of pounds. I wasn’t going to mention it.

Amy: Who’s that?
Rory: Hm? Who’s who?
Amy: Sorry what?
Rory: What did you see? You said you saw something.
Amy: No, I didn’t.

Amy: River, he can’t be dead. This is not impossible.
River: Whatever that was, it killed him in the middle of his regeneration cycle. His body was already dead. He didn’t make it to the next one.
Amy: Maybe he’s a clone or a duplicate or something.
Canton Everett Delaware III (William Morgan Sheppard): I believe I can save you some time. That most certainly is the Doctor. And he is most certainly dead.

Amy: What do we do, Rory?
River: We’re his friends. We do what the Doctor’s friends always do. As we’re told.
Rory: There’s a boat. If we’re going to do this, let’s do it properly.

Amy: Will you two shut up, it doesn’t matter.
River: He was up to something.
Amy: He’s dead.
River: “Space. 1969.” What did he mean?
Amy: You’re still talking, but it doesn’t matter.
Rory: Hey! It mattered to him.
River: So it matters to us.
Amy: He’s dead.
River: But he still needs us. I know. Amy, I know. But right now we have to focus.

Amy: Doctor.
The Doctor: Just popped out to get my special straw. It adds more fizz.
Amy: You’re okay. How can you be okay?
The Doctor: Hey, of course I’m okay. I’m always okay. I’m the king of okay. Oh, that’s a rubbish title. Forget that title.

Amy: I don’t understand.
Rory: Yeah you do.
The Doctor: I don’t. What are we all doing here?
River: We’ve been recruited. Something to do with space, 1969. And a man called Canton Everett Delaware the Third.
The Doctor: Recruited by who?
River: Someone who trusts you more than anyone else in the Universe.
The Doctor: And who’s that?
River: Spoilers.

Amy: Explain it again.
River: The Doctor we saw on the beach is a future version two hundred years older than the one up there.
Amy: But all that’s still gonna happen? He’s still gonna die?
River: We’re all going to do that, Amy.

Amy: We have to tell him.
River: We’ve told him all we can. We can’t even tell him we’ve seen his future self. He’s interacted with his own past. It could rip a hole in the Universe.
Amy: Except he’s done it before!
Rory: And in fairness the Universe did blow up.
Amy: But he’d want to know!
River: Would he? Would anyone?

Amy: Trust me.
The Doctor: Okay.
Amy: You have to do this. And you can’t ask why.
The Doctor: Are you being threatened? Is someone making you say that?
Amy: No.
The Doctor: You’re lying.
Amy: I’m not lying.
The Doctor: Swear to me. Swear to me on something that matters.
Amy: Fish fingers and custard.
The Doctor: My life your hands, Amelia Pond.

Amy: Space man. Like the one we saw in the lake?
River: Maybe. Probably.

Amy: I remember.
Rory: Amy. What do you remember?
Amy: I don’t know, I just—

Amy: Actually, I can usually manage this alone.

Amy: I saw you before at the lake. And here. But then I forgot. How did I forget? What are you? {the woman comes out} Get back! Stay back from it.
Joy: Augh! Oh my god, what is that? Is that a mask? Is that a Star Trek thing? Ben, is that you?
Amy: Get back from it now! {Joy turns}
Joy: Back from what, honey?

Amy: You didn’t have to kill her. She couldn’t even remember you. How does that work? We can only remember you while we’re seeing you, is that it? {she snaps a photo}. Why did you have to kill her?
The Silent: Joy. Her name was Joy. Your name is Amelia. You will tell the Doctor.
Amy: Tell him what?
The Silent: What he must know. And what he must never know.
Amy: How do you know about that?
The Silent: Tell him!

Rory: Why is it always my turn?
Amy: ‘Cause you’re the newest.

Amy: But why would the little girl be here?
The Doctor: I don’t know. It lost me a bit. The President asked her where she was and she did what any lost little girl would do. She looked out of the window.
Amy: Streets. Of course. Street names.

The Doctor: It’s very contemporary. Cutting edge. This is from the space program.
River: Stolen?
Amy: What, by aliens?
The Doctor: Apparently.
Amy: But why? I mean if you could make it all the way to Earth why steal technology that could barely make it to the moon?
The Doctor: Maybe ’cause it’s cooler! Look at how cool this stuff is.
Amy: Cool aliens?
The Doctor: Well what would you call me?
Amy: An alien.
The Doctor: Oy!

Amy: Time can be rewritten.
River: Not all of it.
Amy: Says who?
River: Who d’you think?

Delaware: Doctor “who” exactly?
Amy: Ah. That’s classified.
Delaware: Classified by who?
Amy: God knows.

Amy: I had something I wanted to tell him. Stuff always gets in the way.
Delaware: Stuff does that.

Amy: Doctor, I’m pregnant.

Amy: That’s it. The astronaut.

Little Girl: Help me!
Amy: Get down!
The Doctor: What are you doing?!
Amy: Saving your life!

Day of the Moon

3 Months Later – July 1969

Amy: Canton.
Canton: Miss Pond.
Amy: Is that a body bag?
Canton: Yes it is.
Amy: It’s empty.
Canton: How ’bout that.
Amy: Do you even know why you’re doing this, eh? Can you even remember? The warehouse.

The Doctor: You okay?
Amy: All better.
The Doctor: Better?
Amy: Turns out I was wrong. I’m not pregnant.

Canton: So that’s why you marked your skin?
Amy: Only way we’d know if we had an encounter.
Canton: How long have they been here?
Amy: That’s what we’ve spent the last three months trying to find out.
Rory: Yeah, not easy if you can’t remember anything you discover.

Amy’s recording: I can see them. I think they’re asleep. Get out! Just get out!

Amy: Hello. Who are you?
Matron: No I think she’s just dreaming.

Amy: Who are you? I don’t understand so just tell me who you are! I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to shoot you. I’m glad I missed. But you killed the Doctor. Or you’re gonna kill him. But who are you? Just please, tell me, because I don’t understand.
Little Girl: Please help me. Help me. Please.

Rory: Where is she, Doctor?
River checking the spacesuit: It’s empty.
Amy: Dark. So dark. I don’t know where I am. Please, can anybody hear me?

Amy: I love you. I know you think it’s him. I know you think it ought to be him. But it’s not. It’s you. And when I see you again I’m gonna tell you properly. Just to see your stupid face. My life was so boring before you just dropped out of the sky. Just get your stupid face where I could see it, okay? Okay.

The Silent: We do you honor. You will bring the Silence. But your part will soon be over.
Amy: Well whatever that means, you’ve made a big mistake bringing me here ’cause wait ’til you see what’s coming for you now.
The Silent: You have been here for many days.
Amy: no. I just got here. You just put me in here.
The Silent: Your memory’s weak. You have been here many days.
Amy: No. I can’t have been.
The Silent: You will sleep now.

Amy: Is this really important, flirting? Because I feel like I should be higher on the list right now.

Amy: What’s he got?
Rory: Something, I hope.

Rory: We are not leaving without you.
Amy: No! Just get your stupid face out of here!

The Doctor: You told me you were pregnant.
Amy: Yes.
The Doctor: Why?
Amy: ‘Cause I was. I mean I thought I was. Turns out I wasn’t.
The Doctor: No, I mean why did you tell me?
Amy: Because you’re my friend. You’re my best friend.
The Doctor: Hm. Did you tell Rory?
Amy: No.
The Doctor: Amy, why tell me and not Rory?

The Curse of the Black Spot

Amy: Rory? Little help?
Rory: Yeah. Hey, listen, right? She’s not a doxy!
Amy: I didn’t mean just tell them off! Thanks anyway.

Captain Avery: Put down the sword. A sword could kill us all, girl.
Amy: Yeah. Thanks. That’s actually why I’m pointing it at you.

Dancer (Chris Jarman): You have killed me.
Amy: No way. It’s just a cut. {a black spot appears on his hand} What kind of rubbish pirates are you?
Captain Avery: One drop, that’s all it takes. One drop of blood and she’ll rise out of the ocean.
Amy: Come on, I barely even scratched him. What are you all in such a huff about?

Captain Avery: How did she get in?
The Doctor: Bilge water. She’s using water like a portal. A door. She can materialize through a single drop. We need to go somewhere with no water.
Amy: Well thank god we’re not in the middle of the ocean.

Rory: Did you see her eyes? Like crystal pools.
Amy: You are in enough trouble.

The Doctor: She’s out there now, licking her lips. Boiling the sauce[pan]. Grating the cheese.
Amy: Okay. Well remember if you get an itch don’t scratch too hard.
The Doctor: We’ve all gotta go sometime. There are worse ways than having your face gnawed off by a dodgy mermaid.

Amy: Congratulations. Made it to the menu.

Boatswain: Mulligan, what are you doing?
Amy: No honor among pirates.

The Doctor: Not my most dynamic plan, I realize.
Amy: TARDIS?
The Doctor: It’s been towed.

Captain Avery: To the rigging, you dogs! Let go the sails! Avanti! Put the [bunting in the sack] of the clews!
Amy: I swear he’s making half this stuff up!
Rory: Well we’re gonna need some kind of phrase book!

Captain Avery: We’re on a ghost ship.
The Doctor: No, it’s real. A spaceship trapped in a temporal rift.
Amy: How can two ships be in the same place?
The Doctor: Not the same. Two ships, two worlds. Two cars parked in the same space. There are lots of different universes nested inside each other. Now and again they collide and you can step from one to the other.
Amy: Okay. I think I understand.
The Doctor: Good. ‘Cause it’s not like that at all, but if that helps…
Amy: Thanks.

Amy: I don’t understand. If this is the captain then what’s the Siren?
The Doctor: Same as us. A stowaway.
Amy: She killed him?
The Doctor: Human bacteria.
Amy: What?
The Doctor: A virus. From our planet. Airborne, travelling through the portal. That’s what killed it, didn’t get it’s jahhh— {sticks his hand in goo} bs. Ah. Look.
Amy: What is it?
The Doctor: Sneeze. Alien boogies.

The Doctor: Ignore all my previous theories!
Amy: Yeah, well we stopped paying attention a while back.

Amy: Rory, this isn’t a film. What if I do it wrong?
Rory: You won’t.
Amy: Okay, what if you don’t come back to life? What if—
Rory: I trust you.

Amy: Good night, Doctor.
The Doctor: Good night, Amelia.
Amy: You only call me Amelia when you’re worrying about me.
The Doctor: I always worry about you.
Amy: Mutual.
The Doctor: Go to bed, Pond!

Rory: You can’t tell him. It’s his future.
Amy: I know.

The Doctor’s Wife

The Doctor: …and then we discovered it wasn’t the Robot King after all, it was the real one. Fortunately I was able to reattach the head.
Rory: Do you believe any of this stuff?
Amy: I was there.

Rory: Hey. You’re still thinking about it, aren’t you?
Amy: Shh! We saw him die.
Rory: Yeah. Two hundred years in the future.
Amy: Yes, but it’s still gonna happen.

Rory: What is happening!?
The Doctor: We are leaving the Universe!
Amy: How can you leave the Universe?
The Doctor: With enormous difficulty. Right now I’m burning up TARDIS rooms to give us some [wally]. Goodbye swimming pool! Goodbye scullery! Sorry for this, squash court seven.

Amy: Okay. Okay. Where are we?
The Doctor: Outside the Universe. Where we’ve never ever been.

Amy: So what kind of trouble is your friend in?
The Doctor: He was in a bind. A bit of a pickle. Sort of… distressed.
Amy: Ah, you can’t just say you don’t know?

Amy: Wait, so we’re in a tiny bubble universe sticking to the side of the bigger bubble universe?
The Doctor: Yeah. No! But if it help, yes.

The Doctor: This place is full of rift energy. She’ll probably refuel just by being here. Now, this place. What do we think? Gravity’s almost Earth normal. Air’s breathable. But it smells like—
Amy: Armpits.
The Doctor: Armpits!

Uncle: Come. Come come. You can see House and he can look at you.
The Doctor: I see. This asteroid is sentient.
Auntie: We walk on his back, breathe his air, eat his food—
Amy: Smell its armpits.

Rory: So as soon as the TARDIS is refueled we go, yeah?
The Doctor: No! There are Time Lords here. I heard them and they need me.
Amy: But you told me about your people and you told me what you did.
The Doctor: Yes, yes. But if they’re like The Corsair they’re good ones and I can save them.
Amy: And then tell them you destroyed all the others?
The Doctor: I can explain. Tell them why I had to.
Amy: You want to be forgiven.
The Doctor: Don’t we all?

Amy: I told you to look after him.
Rory: He’ll be fine. He’s a Time Lord.
Amy: It’s just what they’re called. It doesn’t mean he actually knows what he’s doing.

Rory: Two thousand years I waited for you and you did it to me again!
Amy: I didn’t mean to. I didn’t mean to. I’m sorry.

Amy: Crimson. Eleven. Delight. The smell of dust after rain.

The Doctor: She’s a woman. And she’s the TARDIS.
Amy: Did you wish really hard?
The Doctor: Shut up! Not like that.
Idris: Hello. I’m Sexy.
The Doctor: Oh! Still shut up.

Rory: How’s it going under there?
The Doctor: Just putting a firewall around the matrix. Almost done.
Amy: Are you going to make her talk again?
The Doctor: Can’t.
Rory: Why not?
Amy: Spacey wacey, isn’t it?
The Doctor: Well actually it’s because the Time Lords discovered that if you take an eleventh dimensional matrix and fold it into a mechanical then— Yes, it’s spacey wacey!

The Doctor: Big finish. Two more minutes, then we’re off. The Eye of Orion’s restful. If you like restful. I could never get the hang of restful. What do you think, dear? Huh? Where should we take the kids this time?
Amy: Look at you pair. It’s always you and her isn’t it? Long after the rest of us have gone. A boy and his box off to see the universe.
The Doctor: Well you say that as if it’s a bad thing. But honestly it’s the best thing there is.

The Doctor: The House deleted all the bedrooms. I should probably make you two a new bedroom. You’d like that wouldn’t you?
Amy: Okay. Um. Doctor, this time could we lose the bunkbeds?
The Doctor: No! Bunk beds are cool. A bed. With a ladder. You can’t beat that.
