Arthur Darvill

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: 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!

The Doctor: You all need to stay back. Whatever happens now you do not interfere. Clear?
Rory: That’s an astronaut. That’s an Apollo astronaut in a lake.

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. He said you’d need this.
Rory: Gasoline?
River: A Time Lord’s body is a miracle. Even a dead one. There are whole empires out there who’d rip this world apart just for one cell. We can’t leave him here. Or anywhere.

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.

River: Four.
Rory: Sorry, what?
River: The Doctor numbered the envelopes. You got Three, I was Two. Mr. Delaware was Four.
Rory: So?
River: So. Where’s One?
Rory: What, you think he invited someone else?
River: Well he must have. He planned all of this to the last detail.
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.

River: When you know it’s the end, who do you call?
Rory: Your friends, people you can trust.
River: Number One. Who did the Doctor trust the most? {The Doctor walks casually out of the back}. This is cold. Even by your standards, this is cold.

Rory: I don’t understand. How can you be here?
The Doctor: I was invited. Date. Map reference. Same as you lot, I assume. Otherwise it’s a hell of a coincidence.

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.

The Doctor: Rory. Is everybody cross with me for some reason?
Rory: I’ll find out.

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.
Rory: We’re all not going to arrange our own wake and invite ourselves. So the Doctor, in the future, knowing he’s going to die, recruits his younger self and all of us to… to what, exactly? Avenge him?
River: Uh unh. Avenging’s not his style.
Amy: Save him.
Rory: That’s not his style either.

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.

River stepping out of the TARDIS: They’re Americans!
The Doctor: Don’t shoot! Definitely no shooting.
Rory: Don’t shoot us either! Very much not in need of getting shot.

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: It’s ah…
The Doctor: Are you taking care of this?
Rory: Why is it always my turn?
Amy: ‘Cause you’re the newest.

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 what’s going on here?
The Doctor: Uh… nothing. She’s just a friend.
Rory: I think he’s talking about the possible alien incursion.

The Doctor: Rory, would you mind going with her?
Rory: Yeah. A bit.
The Doctor: Then I appreciate it more.

Rory: Is this sensible?
River: God I hope not.
Rory: You and the Doctor. I can kind of picture it.

Rory: What did you mean— what you said to Amy. There’s a worse day coming for you?
River: When I first met the Doctor—a long long time ago—he knew all about me. Think about that. Impressionable young girl and suddenly this man just drops out of the sky. He’s clever and mad and wonderful and… and knows every last thing about her. Imagine what that does to a girl.
Rory: I don’t really have to.
River: Trouble is, it’s all back to front. My past is his future. We’re travelling in opposite directions. Every time we meet I know him more, he knows me less. I live for the days when I see him. But I know that every time I do he’ll be one step further away. The day’s coming when I’ll look into that man’s eyes—my Doctor—and he won’t have the faintest idea who I am. And I think it’s going to kill me.

Day of the Moon

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.

Rory: These things could really do with air holes!
Canton: Never had a complaint before.

The Doctor: So! Three months. What have we found out?
Rory: Well they are everywhere. Every state in America.
The Doctor: Not just America, the entire world.
River: There’s a greater concentration here though.

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.
Rory: It’s like they edit themselves out of your memory as soon as you look away. The exact second you’re not looking at them you can’t remember anything.

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.

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?
Rory: They took this out of her. How did they do that, Doctor? Why can I still hear her?
River: Is it a recording?
The Doctor: Um, it defaults to live. This is current. Wherever she is right now, this is what she’s saying.
Rory: Amy, can you hear me? We’re coming for you. Wherever you are we’re coming, I swear.
The Doctor: She can’t hear you. I’m so sorry. It’s one-way.
Rory: She can always hear me, Doctor. Always. Wherever she is and she always knows that I am coming for her, do you understand me? Always.

The Doctor: She’ll be safe for now. No point in a dead hostage.
Rory: Can’t you save her?
The Doctor: I can track that signal back, take us right to her.
Rory: Then why haven’t you?
The Doctor: Because then what? I find her and then what do I do? This isn’t an alien invasion, they live here. This is their empire. This is kicking the Romans out of Rome.
Rory: Rome fell.
The Doctor: I know. I was there.
Rory: So was I.

The Doctor: Personal question?
Rory: Seriously? You?
The Doctor: Do you ever remember it? Two thousand years waiting for Amy? The Last Centurion.
Rory: No.
The Doctor: Are you lying?
Rory: Of course I’m lying.
The Doctor: Of course you are. Not the sort of thing anyone forgets.
Rory: But I don’t remember it all the time. It’s like this door in my head. I can keep it shut.

Amy about the plan: 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!

River: My old fellah didn’t see that, did he? He gets ever so cross.
Rory: So… what kind of doctor are you?
River: Archaeology. Love a tomb.

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!

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.
The Doctor: Okay, groovy! So not just pirates today. We’ve managed to [?] a ship where there’s a demon popping in. Very efficient. I mean if something’s going to kill you it’s nice that it drops you a note to remind you.

Dancer (Chris Jarman): Quickly, now. Block out the sound.
Rory: What?
Captain Avery: The creature. She charms all her victims with that song.
Rory: Oh great. So put my fingers in my ears, that’s your plan? Doctor, come on. Let’s go. Let’s get back to the, uh—

Rory: You are so beautiful. I love your get-up. Oh, it’s great. You should dress as a pirate more often. Huh? Hey, hey. Cuddle me, ship mate.
Amy: Rory, stop.
Rory: Everything is totally brilliant, isn’t it? Huh? Look at these brilliant pirates. Look at their brilliant beards. I’d like a beard. I’m gonna grow a beard.

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.

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

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

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.

Rory: I know you can do this. Of course if you muck it up I am going to be really cross. And dead.

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

The Doctor’s Wife

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.

Amy: What was that?
The Doctor: The door. It knocked.
Rory: Right. We are in deep space.
The Doctor: Very very deep. And somebody’s knocking.

Rory: Is that meant to be happening?
The Doctor: The power, it’s draining. Everything’s draining. But it can’t, that’s… that’s impossible.
Rory: What is that?
The Doctor: It’s as if the matrix—the soul of the TARDIS—has just vanished. Where would it go?

Rory: What is this place? The Scrapyard at the End of the Universe?
The Doctor: Not end of. Outside of.
Rory: How can we be outside the Universe? The Universe is everything.
The Doctor: Imagine a great big soap bubble with one of those tiny little bubbles on the outside.
Rory: Okay.
The Doctor: Well it’s nothing like that.

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.

Rory: We’re not actually gonna stay here, are we?
The Doctor: Well it seems like a friendly planet. Literally.

The Doctor: My screwdriver, I left it in the TARDIS. It’s in my jacket.
Rory: You’re wearing your jacket.
The Doctor: My other jacket.
Rory: You have two of those?

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: 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?

Rory: Killing us quickly wouldn’t be any fun. And you need fun, don’t you? That’s what Auntie and Uncle were for, wasn’t it? Someone to make suffer. I had a PE teacher just like you.

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.

Idris: Hello Pretty!
Rory: What the hell is that?
The Doctor: Don’t worry! Telepathic messaging. {to Idris} No, that’s Rory.
Idris: You have to go to the old control room. I’m putting the root in your head. When you get there use the purple slider on the nearest panel to lower the shields.
The Doctor: The pretty one?

Rory: Where’s Nephew?
Amy: He was standing right where you materialized.
The Doctor: Ah. Well. He must have been redistributed.
Rory: Meaning what?
The Doctor: You’re breathing him. Another Ood I failed to save.

Idris is whispering in Rory’s ear
Rory: I don’t understand. There isn’t a forest in here.

Rory: At the end, she was talking. She kept repeating something. I don’t know what it meant.
The Doctor: What did she say?
Rory: “The only water in the forest is the river.” She said we’d need to know it someday. It doesn’t make sense, does it?
The Doctor: Not yet.

The Doctor: You okay?
Rory: No. I watched her die. I shouldn’t let it get to me, but it still does. I’m a nurse.
The Doctor: Letting it get to you. You know what that’s called? Being alive. Best thing there is. Being alive right now is all that counts.
