The Impossible Astronaut

Guard: You better get down here, sir. She’s doing it again. […] Doctor Song, sir. She’s packing. Says she’s going to some planet called “America”.

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.

River: Who are you? Why did you come?
Delaware: Same reason as you. {he pulls out the invite} Doctor Song. Amy. Rory. I’m Canton Everett Delaware the Third. I won’t be seeing you again, but you’ll be seeing me.

Nixon: I understand you have a problem with authority.
Canton Everett Delaware, III (Mark Sheppard): Thank you.
Nixon: It’s not a compliment, son.

Nixon: You were my second choice for this, Mr. Delaware.
Delaware: That’s okay. You were my second choice for president. Mr. Nixon.

Nixon: Every day—wherever I am—I get a phone call.
Delaware: People can’t just call you, Mr. President.
Nixon: It’s a direct call every time. Every day for the last two weeks. Usually late at night.
Delaware: Man or woman?
Nixon: Neither.

Nixon: Who are you?
The Doctor: Nah, boring question. Who’s phoning you? That’s interesting. ‘Cause Canton Three is right. That was definitely a girl’s voice. Which means there’s only one place in America she can be phoning from.
Delaware: Where?
Peterson: Do not engage with the intruder, Mr. Delaware.
The Doctor: You heard everything I heard. It’s simple enough. Give me five minutes I’ll explain. On the other hand, lay a finger on me or my friends and you’ll never ever know.
Delaware: How’d you get it in there? I mean you didn’t carry it in.
The Doctor: Clever, eh?
Delaware: Love it.
Peterson: Do not compliment the intruder!
Delaware: Five minutes?
The Doctor: Five.

Peterson: Mr. President, that man is a clear and present dang—
Delaware: Mr President, that man walked in here with a big blue box and three of his friends. And that’s the man he walked past. One of them is worth listening to. I say we give him five minutes, see if he delivers.
The Doctor: Thanks Canton.
Delaware: If he doesn’t, I’ll shoot him myself.
The Doctor: Not so thanks.

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!

Delaware: You, sir, are a genius.
The Doctor: A hobby.

The Doctor: Canton, on no account follow me into this box and close the door behind you.
Delaware: What the hell are you doing?! {he runs into the TARDIS}.

Rory: You okay? Coping? {Canton just sort of spins around}.
Delaware: It’s bigger on the inside.
Rory: Yeah, you get used to it.

Delaware: We’ve moved. How can we have we moved?
The Doctor: You haven’t even got to space travel yet.
Rory: I was going to cover it with time travel.
Delaware: Time travel?

Delaware: So we’re in a box that’s bigger on the inside and it travels through time and space?
Rory: Yeah, basically.
Delaware: How long have Scotland Yard had this?

The Doctor: Ah! Back with us, Canton?
Delaware: I like your wheels.
The Doctor: That’s my boy.

Amy: So. You were kicked out of the FBI because you had attitude problems.
Delaware: No. I just wanted to get married.
Amy: Is that a crime?
Delaware: Yes.

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.

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.

Area 51 – Nevada

Canton: We found Amy Pond. She had strange markings {shows the photo} on her arm. Do you know what they are?
The Doctor: Why don’t you ask her.

New York

Canton: Dr. Song! Dr. Song!

Canton: It’s over.
River: They’re here, Canton. They’re everywhere.
Canton: I know. America is being invaded.
River: You were invaded a long time ago. America is occupied!
Canton: You’re coming with us, Dr. Song. There’s no way out this time.
River: There’s always a way out. {She swan dives off the building.}

Canton: We found Dr. Song.
The Doctor: These bricks, what are they made of? {switching gears} Where is she?
Canton: She ran. Off the fiftieth floor.
The Doctor: I’d say zero balance dwarf star alloy. The densest material in the Universe. Nothing gets through that. You’re building me the perfect prison. {He turns to Canton} And it still won’t be enough.

Glen Canyon Dam – Arizona

Rory: What are you waiting for?
Canton: I’m waiting for you to run. It’ll look better if I shot you while you’re running. Then again— {he aims} looks aren’t everything.

The Doctor: Is there a reason you’re doing this?
Canton: I want you to know where you stand. In a cell. In a perfect cell. Nothing can penetrate these walls. No sound. Not a radio wave. Not the tiniest particle of anything. In here, you’re literally cut off from the rest of the Universe.

Canton: So I guess they can’t hear us, right?
The Doctor: Good work, Canton. Door sealed?
Canton: You bet.

Rory: These things could really do with air holes!
Canton: Never had a complaint before.
Amy: Isn’t it going to look odd that you’re standing here with us?
Canton: Odd, but not alarming. They know there’s no way out of this place.
The Doctor: Exactly! Whatever they think we might be doing in here, they know we’re not going anywhere. {he leans against the invisible TARDIS} Shall we?

Canton: So you’ve seen them, but you don’t remember them?
River: You’ve seen them too. That night at the warehouse. Remember? While you were pretending to hunt us down we saw hundreds of those things. We still don’t know what they look like.

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.
Canton: How long do you think?
The Doctor: As long as there’s been something in the corner of your eye, or creaking in your house or breathing under your bed or voices through a wall. They’ve been running your lives for a very long time now, so keep this straight in your head. We are not fighting an alien invasion. We’re leading a revolution. And today the battle begins.

The Doctor: Look at your hand.
Canton: Why’s it doing that?
The Doctor: What does it mean if the light’s flashing? What did I just tell you?
Canton: I haven’t—
The Doctor: Play it.

The Doctor: You just saw an image of one of the creatures we’re fighting. Describe it.
Canton: I can’t.
The Doctor: No. Neither can I.

Dr. Renfrew: Please excuse the writing. It keeps happening. I try to clean it up.
Amy: It’s the kids, yeah? They did that.
Dr. Renfrew: Yes. The children. It must be. Yes. {they see GET OUT written on his arm}.

Canton: We nearly didn’t come to this place. I understood Graystark Hall was closed 1967.
Dr. Renfrew: That’s the plan, yes.
Amy: The plan?
Dr. Renfrew: Not long now, yes.
Canton: It’s 1969.
Dr. Renfrew: No no, we close in ’67. That’s the plan, yes.
Canton: You misunderstood me, sir. It’s 1969 now.
Dr. Renfrew: Why are you saying that? Of course it isn’t.
Canton: July.

Canton: This place, it’s been closed for years. What have you been doing?
Dr. Renfrew: Oh, the child. She must be cared for. It’s important. That’s what they said.

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.

Canton: What are you? You can tell me. ‘Cause I won’t remember. You invaded us. You’re everywhere. Are you armed?
The Silent: This world is ours. We have ruled it since the wheel and the fire. We have no need of weapons.
Canton: Yeah. {He shoots him.} Welcome to America.

The Doctor: Who and what are you?
The Silent: The Silence, Doctor. We are the Silence. And Silence will fall!

Canton: Hello again.
Ishem: Sir, you’ve been in there for days. What the hell have you been doing?
Canton: Doesn’t matter. I need Dr. Sheppard here right now.
Ishem: Sir, I need to talk to Colonel Jefferson right now.
Canton: No. You really don’t.

The Silent: You tend to my wounds. You are foolish.
Canton: Why? What would you do in my place?
The Silent: We have ruled your lives since your lives began. You should kill us all on sight. But you will never remember. We weren’t even here. Your will is ours!
Canton: Well. Sorry to disappoint you. But thanks, that’s exactly what I needed to hear. This is a video phone. Whatever a video phone is.

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.

Nixon: So we’re safe again.
The Doctor: Safe? No, of course you’re not safe. There’s about a billion other things out there just waiting to burn your whole world. But if you want to pretend you’re safe just so you can sleep at night, okay. You’re safe. But you’re not really.

Nixon: This person that you want to marry. Black?
Canton: Yes.
Nixon: Hm. I know what people think of me, but perhaps I’m a little more liberal—
Canton: He is.
Nixon: I think the moon is far enough for now, don’t you Mr. Delaware?
Canton: I figured it might be.

New York – 6 Months Later

Homeless Guy: Are you okay? Little girl, are you okay?
Little Girl: It’s all right. It’s quite all right. I’m dying. But I can fix that. It’s easy really. See? {she starts to regenerate}

The Curse of the Black Spot

Boatswain (Lee Ross): What’s wrong?
Mulligan (Michael Begley): Man wounded.
Boatswain: Wake him.

Boatswain: He slipped in the bilge water, Captain, and fell under the rigger. His hand, I… I don’t know if he’ll survive.
Henry Avery (Hugh Bonneville) seeing a slight cut: You’re a dead man, McGrath. {checks for the black spot on his palm}. Same as all the others. {hears singing} She’s here.
Boatswain: Oh, save all our souls.
McGrath (Carl McCrystal): We’ve got to escape.
Boatswain: We can’t go out there. McGrath, don’t listen for gods sake. The Siren is a calling’!

Captain Avery: Same as all the others. No sign of a struggle, no bones or blood.
Boatswain: We’re [?] by every single one of us stuck on the ocean, waiting.
Captain Avery: Until the wind changes. {banging sounds} What’s that?
Boatswain: It’s the creature, it’s returned. {the hatch swings open to reveal…}
The Doctor: Yo ho ho! Or does nobody actually say that?

Captain Avery: We made no signal.
The Doctor: Our sensors picked you up. “Ship in distress”.
Captain Avery: Sensors?
The Doctor: Yes. Okay! Problem word, seventeenth century. My ship automatically… noticed-ish that your ship was having some bother.
Captain Avery: That big blue crate?
Boatswain: That is more magic, Captain Avery. They’re spirits. How else would they have found their way below decks.
The Doctor: Well… I want to say multi-dimensional engineering, but since you had a problem with sensors I won’t go there. Look. I’m the Doctor. This is Amy. Rory. We’re sailors! Same as you. Rawrgh! Except for the gun thing. And the beardiness.
Captain Avery: You’re stowaways. Only explanation. Eight days we’ve been stranded here. Becalmed. You must have stowed away before we sailed.
Boatswain: And what do we do with them?
Captain Avery: Oh, I think they deserve our hospitality.

The Doctor: I suppose laughing like that is in the job description. “Can you do the laugh? Check. Grab yourself a parrot. Welcome aboard!”.
Captain Avery: Stocks are low. Only one barrel of water remains. We don’t need three more empty bellies to fill. {to the boatswain} Take the doxy below, to the galley. Set her to work. She won’t need much feeding.

Rory: Ah, Doctor, what’s happening to me?
Captain Avery: She can smell the blood on your skin. She’s marked you for death.
Rory: She?
Captain Avery: A demon, out there in the ocean.

Burly Bearded Guy: Leave the cursed one, Captain. The creature can have him.
Rory: Yes. Please.
Captain Avery: We don’t want a siren coming after us.

Captain Avery: I give the orders.
The Doctor: Ah. Worried ’cause I’m wearing a hat now?

Boatswain: Who is he?
The Doctor: What, he’s not one of the crew?
Captain Avery: No. He’s my son.

Toby Avery (Oscar Lloyd): She told me all about you. How you were a captain in the Navy. An honourable man, she said. How I’d be proud to know you. I’ve come to join your crew.
Captain Avery: I don’t want you here.
Toby: You can’t send me back. It’s too late. We’re a hundred miles from home.
Captain Avery: It’s dangerous here. There is a monster aboard. She leaves a mark on men’s skin.
Toby: The black spot?

Amy: What’s going on?
Boatswain: We’re not staying here to mollycoddle the boy. The Captain’s gone soft, it’s time to leave.

Captain Avery: Wheel?
The Doctor: Atom accelerator.
Captain Avery: It steers the thing.
The Doctor: No! Sort of. Yes.
Captain Avery: Wheel. Telescope. Astrolabe. Compass. A ship’s a ship.

Boatswain: Honor-bound? Do you know what kind of ship this is? Do you know what your father does?
Amy: Don’t listen to him, Toby.
Boatswain: We sail under the black flag. The Jolly Roger.
Toby: Liar! He’s not a wicked pirate!
Boatswain: Oh you think so? I’ve seen your father gun down a thousand innocent men.

The Doctor: This is how the professionals do it! {nothing} It’s stuck. Not responding.
Captain Avery: Becalmed?
The Doctor: Mm hm. Yeah. Apparently. That’s new. You had to gloat, didn’t you!
Captain Avery: I’m not gloating.
The Doctor: I saw that look just now. “Ha ha. His ship is rubbish.”
Captain Avery: True.

Toby: One more step and I’ll use this, you blaggard.
Boatswain: You don’t know how to fight with a cutlass, boy.
Toby: Don’t need to, do I? {he cuts him}

The Doctor: Okay. Okay. Oh, oh… kay. TARDIS runs off on its own. That’s a bit of a new one. Bang goes our only hope of getting them out of here.
Captain Avery: Not much of a captain without a ship, are you?

Captain Avery: Mulligan. What are you doing? This is mutiny.
Mulligan: She doesn’t want me. She only wants Toby. And that squirrely-looking fellow.
The Doctor
: He’s got the last of the supplies. We should go after him.
Captain Avery: Never mind the damn supplies. What about my treasure.

The Doctor: I was wrong. Please ignore all my theories up to this point.
Captain Avery: What, again?
The Doctor: We’re all in danger. The water’s not how she’s getting in. When we were down in the hold, think what happened?. You, me, Amy, Rory, leeches.
Captain Avery: She sprang from the water.
The Doctor: It’s only when it grew still. Still water! Nature’s mirror.
Captain Avery: So. You mean—
The Doctor: Yeah, it’s not water. Reflection.

The Doctor: The Siren legend, the curse.
Captain Avery: You said curses weren’t real.
The Doctor: Folklore springs from truth. She attacks ships filled with treasure. Where else would she get a perfect reflection?
Captain Avery: Polished metal.

The Doctor: Yes yes, I know. Very bad luck to break it. But look at it this way: there’s a stroppy, homicidal mermaid trying to kill all of us.
Captain Avery: How much worse can things get.

Captain Avery: No! No! This the the treasure of the Mughal of India.
The Doctor: Oh good, for a moment there I thought it was yours.

Captain Avery: I’m sorry about your mother. You miss her a lot.
Toby: Three years. Not a word from you.
Captain Avery: Toby—
Toby: You promised her. You promised you’d come home. And she believed you would. Right up until the day she died.

Toby: What made you do it? What made you turn pirate?
Captain Avery: Get some sleep now.

Eye Patch Lady: It’s fine. You’re doing fine. Just stay calm.

The Doctor: How’d you end up here? Wandering the oceans with a band of rogues.
Captain Avery: I’ve set my course now. Nothing I can do to alter it.
The Doctor: People stared at it for centuries and never knew. Things can suddenly change. When you least expect it.

Captain Avery: Heave ho, you bilge rats!
Rory: Rats was all I could hear.

The Doctor: We have to send this ship back into space. I mean imagine if the Siren got ashore. She would try to process every injured human.
Captain Avery: What about Toby?
The Doctor: Sorry. Typhoid fever. Once he returns it’s only a matter of time.
Captain Avery: What if I stay with him? Here? The Siren will look after him. I can’t go back to England. What home does he have now if not with me?
The Doctor: You think you can sail this thing?
Captain Avery: Just point me to the atom accelerator.

The Doctor’s Wife

Idris (Suranne Jones): Will it be me, Uncle?
Uncle: Yeah, it’s gonna be you. I only wish I could go in your place, Idris. Nah I don’t, ’cause it’s really gonna hurt. {an Ood with yellow glowing eyes comes up behind her}.
Idris: It’s starting. What will happen?
Auntie: Oh! Um, Nephew will drain your mind and your soul from your body and leave your body empty.
Idris: I’m scared!
Aunt: Oh, I expect so, dear. But soon you’ll have a new soul. There’ll be a Time Lord comin’.

Idris: Hey! Hey! You’re my thief!
Auntie: She’s dangerous!
Guard yourselves!
Idris: Look at you! Goodbye!
No. Not goodbye. What’s the other one? {she kisses him}
Uncle: Watch out. Careful. Keep back from her.

Uncle: Welcome strangers. Lovely. Sorry about the mad person.
The Doctor: Why am I a thief? What have I stolen?
Idris: Me. Are you going to steal me. You have stolen me. You are stealing me. Oh! Tenses are difficult, aren’t they?
Auntie: Oh. Oh we are sorry, my dove. She’s off her head.

Auntie: They call me Auntie.
Uncle: I’m Uncle. I’m everybody’s uncle. Just keep back from this one. She bites!
Idris: Do I? Excellent! {She bites him} Biting’s excellent! It’s like kissing. Only there’s a winner.
Uncle: Oh, sorry. She’s doolally.
Idris: No, I’m not doolally. I’m mmmm. I’m mmm…. It’s on the tip of my tongue. I’ve just had a new idea about kissing. Come here, you!
Auntie: Idris! No!
Idris: Oh, but now you’re angry. No, you’re not. You will be angry. The little boxes will make you angry.
The Doctor: Sorry? Little what? Boxes?
Idris: Your chin is hilarious!

Idris: It means “the smell of dust after rain.”
Rory: What does?
Idris: Petrichor.
Rory: But I didn’t ask.
Idris: Not yet. But you will.

Auntie: No, Idris. I think you should have a rest.
Idris: Rest! Yes yes. Good idea. I’ll just… see if there’s an off switch. {she collapses)
Uncle: Is that it? She’s dead now. So sad.
Rory: She’s still breathing.
Uncle: Nephew, take Idris somewhere she cannot bite people, hm?

If you are receiving this message, please help me. Send a signal to the High Council of the Time Lords of Gallifrey. Tell them that I am still alive! I don’t know where I am, I’m— […] planet.

Idris: I’m— I’m—. Big word. Sad word. Why is that word so sad? No. Will be sad. Will be sad.

The Doctor: So you’re like a… sea urchin. Hard on the surface—that’s the planet we’re walking on. Big squashy ugly thing inside. That’s you.
The House: That is correct, Time Lord.
The Doctor: Ah! So you’ve met Time Lords before.
The House: Many travellers come through the rift. Like Auntie and Uncle and Nephew. I repair them when they break.
The Doctor: So there are Time Lords here then.
The House: Not anymore. But there have been many TARDISs on my back in days gone by.
The Doctor: Ah. Well there won’t be anymore after us. Last Time Lord. Last TARDIS.
The House: A pity. Your people were so kind. Be here in safety, Doctor. Rest. Feed, if you will.

Idris: What was that? Do fish have fingers? Like a nine-year-old trying to rebuild a motorbike. What am I saying? Why am I saying that? Thief? Where’s my thief? Thief!

The Doctor: How many Time Lords have you lured here the way you lured me? And what happened to them all?
Auntie: House, House is kind and he is wise.
The Doctor: “House repairs you when you break.” Yes I know! But how does he mend you? You’ve got the eyes of a twenty-year-old.
Uncle: Oh, thank you.
The Doctor: No, no. I mean it literally. Your eyes are thirty years younger than the rest of you. Your ears don’t match. Your right arm is two inches longer than your left. And how’s your dancing? ‘Cause you’ve got two left feet. Patchwork people. You’ve been repaired and patched up so often I doubt there’s anything left of what used to be you.

The Doctor: I had an umbrella like you once.
Auntie: Oh. No. It’s been a great arm for me, this.
The Doctor: The Corsair.
Auntie: He was a strapping big bloke, wasn’t he Uncle?
Uncle: Big fellah.
Auntie: I got the arm and Uncle got the spine and the kidneys.

The Doctor: How did you know about the boxes? You said they’d make me angry. How did you know?
Idris: Ah. It’s my thief.
The Doctor: Who are you?
Idris: Hm. It’s about time.

The Doctor: I don’t understand. Who are you?
Idris: Do you really not know me? Just because they put me in here?
The Doctor: They said you were dangerous.
Idris: Not the cage, stupid. In here. They put me in here. I’m the… Oh, what do you call me? We travel. I go {she makes the TARDIS sound}.
The Doctor: The TARDIS?
Idris: Time and Relative Dimension in Space. Yes that’s it. Names are funny. It’s me. I’m the TARDIS.
The Doctor: No you’re not! You’re a bitey mad lady. The TARDIS is up-and-downy stuff in a big blue box.
Idris: Yes, that’s me. A type 40 TARDIS. I was already a museum piece when you were young. And the first time you touched my console, you said—
The Doctor: I said you were the most beautiful thing I’d ever known.
Idris: Then you stole me. And I stole you.
The Doctor: I borrowed you.
Idris: Borrowing implies the eventual intention to return the thing that was taken. What makes you think I would ever give you back?
The Doctor: You’re the TARDIS.
Idris: Yes.
The Doctor: My TARDIS?
Idris: My Doctor. Oh! We have now reached the point in the conversation where you open the lock. {he opens the lock}

Idris: Are all people like this?
The Doctor: Like what?
Idris: So much bigger on the inside. I’m— Oh, what is that word? It’s so big. And so complicated. And so sad.

The Doctor: But why? Why pull the living soul from a TARDIS and pop it in a tiny human head? What does it want you for?
Idris: Oh, it doesn’t want me.
The Doctor: How do you know?
Idris: House eats TARDISs.
The Doctor: House what? What do you mean?
Idris: I don’t know, something I heard you say.
The Doctor: When?
Idris: In the future.
The Doctor: House eats TARDISs?
Idris: Oh, there you go. What are fish fingers?
The Doctor: When do I say that?
Idris: Any second.
The Doctor: Of course! House feeds on rift energy and TARDISs are bursting with it. And not raw. Lovely and cooked. Processed food. Mmmm. Fish fingers.
Idris: Do fish have fingers?
The Doctor: But you can’t eat a TARDIS. It would destroy you, unless. Unless.
Idris: Unless. You deleted the TARDIS matrix first.
The Doctor: So it deleted you?
Idris: But House just can’t delete a TARDIS consciousness. That would blow a hole in the Universe. So he pulls out the matrix, sticks it into a living receptacle, and then it feeds off the remaining [Artron] energy. Ah! You were about to say all that. I don’t suppose you have to now.

Rory: Listen. Whatever happens at least we’re together. And we’re in the TARDIS, so we’re safe.
The House: You’re half-right. I mean, you are in the TARDIS. What a great adventure. I should have done this half-a-million years ago. So. Amy. Rory. Why shouldn’t I just kill you now?

Auntie: Well we’re dying, my love. It’s time for Auntie and Uncle to pop off.
Uncle: I’m against it.
Auntie: It’s your fault, isn’t it, Sweets? ‘Cause you told House it was the last TARDIS. House can’t feed on them if there’s none more coming, can he?
Uncle: So now he’s off to your universe to find more TARDISs.
The Doctor: It won’t.
Auntie: Oh it’ll think of something. {she collapses}
Uncle: Actually, I feel fine. {he collapses}

Idris: We need to go to where we landed, Doctor. Quickly.
The Doctor: Why?
Idris: ‘Cause we are there in three minutes. We need to go now!

Idris: Roughly how long do these bodies last?
The Doctor: You’re dying.
Idris: Yes, of course I’m dying. I don’t belong in a flesh body. I could blow the casing in no time. No. Stop. Don’t get emotional. That’s what the orange girl says.

The Doctor: Oo. Sorry. Do you have a name?
Idris: Seven hundred years, finally he asks.
The Doctor: And what do I call you?
Idris: I think you call me… Sexy.
The Doctor: Only when we’re alone.
Idris: We are alone.
The Doctor: Oh. Come on then, Sexy.

The Doctor: Valley of half-eaten TARDISs. You thinking what I’m thinking?
Idris: I’m thinking all of my sisters are dead. That they were devoured. And that we are looking at their corpses.
The Doctor: Ah. Sorry, no. I wasn’t thinking that.
Idris: No. You were thinking you could build a working TARDIS console out of broken remnants of a hundred different models. And you don’t care that it’s impossible?
The Doctor: It’s not impossible as long as we’re alive. Rory and Amy need me. So yeah, we’re gonna build a TARDIS.

Idris: You’re like a nine-year-old trying to rebuild a motorbike in his bedroom. And you never read the instructions.
The Doctor: I always read the instructions.
Idris: There’s a sign on my front door. You have been walking past it for seven hundred years. What does it say?
The Doctor: That’s not instructions!
Idris: There’s an instruction at the bottom. What does it say?
The Doctor: “Pull to open.”
Idris: Yes, and what do you do?
The Doctor: I push!
Idris: Every single time. Seven hundred years. Police box doors open out the way.
The Doctor: I think I have earned the right to open my front doors anyway I want.
Idris: Your front doors? Have you any idea how childish that sounds?
The Doctor: Oh. You are not my mother.
Idris: And you are not my child.

The Doctor: You know, since we’re talking with mouths—not really an opportunity that comes along very often—I just want to say, you know you have never been very reliable.
Idris: And you have?
The Doctor: You didn’t always take me where I wanted to go.
Idris: No, but I always took you where you needed to go.
The Doctor: You did.

The Doctor: Look at us! Talking! wouldn’t it be amazing if we could always talk, even when you’re stuck inside the box?
Idris: But you know I’m not constructed that way. I exist across all space and time and you talk and run around and bring home strays!

The Doctor: You okay?
Idris: One of the kidneys has already failed. It doesn’t matter. We need to finishing assembling the console.
The Doctor: Using a console without a proper shell. Whew. It’s not going to be safe.
Idris: This body has about eighteen minutes left to live. The universe we’re in will reach absolute zero in three hours. Safe is relative.

Idris: Do you ever wonder why I chose you all those years ago?
The Doctor: I chose you. You were unlocked.
Idris: Of course I was. I wanted to see the Universe so I stole a Time Lord and I ran away. And you were the only one mad enough.

The Doctor: I’ve got nothing.
Idris: Oh my beautiful idiot. You have what you’ve always had. You’ve got me.

The Doctor: Can you get a message to Amy? The telepathic circuits are online.
Idris: Which one’s Amy? The pretty one?

Idris: Hello Pretty!
Rory: What the hell is that?

The Doctor: You’re doing it, you sexy thing!
Idris: See, you do call me that. Is it my name?
The Doctor: You bet it’s your name!

The House: I had hoped you two could join Nephew as my servants. But you two are nothing but trouble. Nephew. Kill them.

The Doctor: Hey. Hang in there, Old Girl. Not long now. It’ll be over soon.
Idris: I always liked it when you called me Old Girl.

The House: Fear me. I’ve killed hundreds of Time Lords.
The Doctor: Fear me. I’ve killed all of them.

The Doctor: You’ve forced the TARDIS into a body so she’d burn out safely, a very long way away from this control room. A flesh body can’t hold the TARDIS matrix and live. Look at her body, House.
The House: And you think I should mourn her?
The Doctor: No. I think you should be very very careful about what you let back into this control room. You took her from her home. And now she’s back in her box again. And she’s free.
The House: No! Doctor! Stop this! Stop this now!
The Doctor: Look at my girl. Look at her go. Bigger on the inside! See, House. That’s your problem. Size of a planet but inside you are just so small.
The House: Make it stop.
The Doctor: Finish him off, girl.

Idris: Doctor. Are you there? It’s so very dark in here.
The Doctor: I’m here. Hey.
Idris: I’ve been looking for a word. A big, complicated word, but so sad. I found it now.
The Doctor: What word?
Idris: “Alive.” I’m alive.
The Doctor: Alive isn’t sad.
Idris: It’s sad when it’s over. I’ll always be here. But this is when we talked. And now even that has come to an end.

Idris: There’s something I didn’t get to say to you.
The Doctor: Goodbye.
Idris: No. I just wanted to say, Hello. Hello Doctor. It’s so very very nice to meet you.
The Doctor: Please. I don’t want you to.
Idris: I love you.
