New Earth

Rose: So where are we going?
The Doctor: Further than we’ve ever gone before.

The Doctor: So in the year five billion, the sun expands, the Earth gets roasted.
Rose: That was our first date.
The Doctor: We had chips.

Rose: Not exactly NHS.
The Doctor: No little shop. I like the little shop.
Rose: I’d have thought this far in the future they’d have cured everything.
The Doctor: The human race moves on, but so do the viruses. It’s an ongoing war.
Rose noticing the nurses: They’re cats.
The Doctor: Now, don’t stare. Look what you look like to them, all… pink and yellow.

Rose: You get out of the Doctor’s body! He can think of something.
Cassandra in The Doctor: Nag nag nag. God it’s tedious inside your head. Hormone city.

Tooth and Claw

The Doctor: Ian Dury and the Blockheads. Number one in 1979.
Rose: You’re a punk. That’s what you are. A big ol’ punk with a bit of Rockabilly thrown in.
The Doctor: Want to go see him?
Rose: How d’you mean, in concert?
The Doctor: What else is the TARDIS for? I can take you to the Battle of Trafalgar, the first anti-gravity Olympics, Caesar crossing the Rubicon. Or Ian Dury at the Top Rank. Sheffield, England, Earth, 21st November 1979. What do you think?
Rose: Sheffield it is.
The Doctor: Hold on tight.

The Doctor: Are we in Scotland?
Captain Reynolds: How can you be ignorant of that?
The Doctor: Oh, I’m dazed and confused. I’ve been chasing this wee naked child over hill and over dale. I’nt that right, ya timorous beastie?
Rose: Och! Ay! I’ve bin oot and aboot.
The Doctor: No, don’t do that.
Rose: Hoots mon.
The Doctor: No, really don’t. Really.

The Doctor: Rose, might I introduce Her Majesty, Queen Victoria. Empress of India and Defender of the Faith.
Rose: Rose Tyler, Mum. And my apologies for being so naked.
Queen Victoria (Pauline Collins): I’ve had five daughters. It’s nothing to me.

Rose: I want her to say “We are not amused.” I bet you five quid I can make her say it.
The Doctor: Well if I gambled on that it’d be an abuse of my privilege as a traveler in time.
Rose: Ten quid?
The Doctor: Done.

Rose: What do we do?
The Doctor: We… run.
Rose: Is that it?
The Doctor: You got any silver bullets?
Rose: Not on me, no.
The Doctor: There we are then. We run.

The Doctor: No but the funny thing is Queen Victoria actually did suffer a mutation of the blood. It’s historical record. She was hemophiliac. They used to call it the Royal Disease. But it’s always been a mystery because she didn’t inherit it. Her mom didn’t have it, her dad didn’t have it. It came from nowhere.
Rose: What, and you’re saying that’s a wolf bite?
The Doctor: Well maybe hemophilia is just a Victorian euphemism.
Rose: For werewolf?
The Doctor: Could be.
Rose: Queen Victoria is a werewolf?
The Doctor: Could be. And her children had the royal disease. Maybe she gave them a quick nip.
Rose: So the royal family are werewolves?
The Doctor: Well, maybe not yet. I mean a single wolf cell could take a hundred years to mature. Might be ready by, hm, early twenty-first century.
Rose: Naw, that’s just ridiculous. Mind you, Princess Anne.
The Doctor: Aw, say no more!

School Reunion

Rose: See? This is me. Dinner Lady.
The Doctor: I’ll have the crumble.
Rose: I’m so going to kill you.

The Doctor: K-9! Rose Tyler, Mickey Smith, allow me to introduce K-9. Well K-9 mark III to be precise.
Rose: Why does he look so… disco?
The Doctor: Oy! Listen, in the year five thousand this was cutting edge. What happened to him?
Sarah Jane: One day just— nothing.
The Doctor: Well didn’t you try and get him repaired?
Sarah Jane: It’s not getting a part for a Mini Metro. Besides technology inside him could rewrite human science. I couldn’t show him to anyone.
The Doctor: Oo. What’s the nasty lady done to you?
Rose: No offense, but can you two just stop petting for a minute? Never mind the tin dog, we’re busy.

Rose: The thing is, when you two met, they’d only just got rid of rationing. No wonder all that space stuff was a bit too much for ya.
Sarah Jane: I had no problem with space stuff. I saw things you wouldn’t believe!
Rose: Try me.
Sarah Jane: Mummies!
Rose: I’ve met ghosts.
Sarah Jane: Robots. Lots of robots.
Rose: Slitheen. In Downing Street.
Sarah Jane: Daleks!
Rose: Met the Emperor.
Sarah Jane: Gas mask zombies.
Rose: Anti-matter monsters.
Sarah Jane: Real living dinosaurs!
Rose: Real living werewolf!
Sarah Jane: The Loch Ness Monster!
Rose: Seriously?

Rose: What do I do? Do I stay with him?
Sarah Jane: Yes. Some things are worth getting your heart broken for.

The Girl in the Fireplace

Rose: Where’d all the crew go?
The Doctor: Good question. No life readings on board.
Rose: Well. We’re in deep space. They didn’t just nip out for a quick fag.
The Doctor: Nope. Checked all the smoking pods.

Rose: Why her? You’ve got all of history to choose from. Why specifically her?
Clockwork Woman: We are the same.
Reinette: We are not the same. We are in no sense the same.

The Doctor: It’s back on the ship. Rose, take Mickey and Arthur, get after it, follow it. Don’t approach it, just watch where it goes.
Rose: Arthur?
The Doctor: Good name for a horse.
Rose: No, you’re not keeping the horse.
The Doctor: I let you keep Mickey. Now go go go!

Clockwork Man: You are compatible.
Rose: Well, you might want to think about that. You really really might. Because me and Mickey, we didn’t come here alone. Oh no. And trust me, you wouldn’t want to mess with our designated driver.

Rose: Oh, look at what the cat dragged in. The Oncoming Storm.
The Doctor: Mm. You sound just like your mother.
Rose: What have you been doing? Where have you been?
The Doctor: Well… among other things I think I just invented the banana daiquiri a couple of centuries early. Do you know they’d never even seen a banana before. Always take a banana to a party, Rose. Bananas are good.

Reinette: The monsters and the Doctor. It seems you cannot have one without the other.
Rose: Tell me about it. The thing is, you weren’t supposed to have either. Those creatures are messing with history. None of this was ever supposed to happen to you.
Reinette: “Supposed to happen”. What does that mean? It happened, child. And I would not have it any other way. One may tolerate a world of demons for the sake of an angel.

Reinette: Those screams. Is that my future?
Rose: Yeah. I’m sorry.
Reinette: Then I must take the slower path.

Rise of the Cybermen

The Doctor: This is not your world.
Mickey: But if the date’s the same…. It’s parallel, right? Am I right, like a parallel Earth where they’ve got Zeppelins? Am I right? I’m right, aren’t I?
The Doctor: Must be.
Rose: So a parallel world where—
Mickey: Oh come on, you’ve seem it on films. Like an alternative to our world, where everything’s the same but a little bit different. Like, I don’t know, traffic lights are blue. Tony Blair never got elected.
Rose: And he’s still alive. A parallel world where my dad’s still alive.

Rose: I don’t exist.
The Doctor: What do you mean?
Rose: There’s no Rose Tyler. I was never born.

The Doctor: I never knew.
Rose: You never asked.
The Doctor: You never said.
Rose: It’s Mickey. I suppose I— we just… take him for granted.

Rose: Mrs. Tyler, is there anything I can get you?
Jackie: The last twenty years back.
Rose: I can manage a glass of champagne or a nice cup of tea.

The Doctor: It’s happening again.
Rose: What d’you mean?
The Doctor: I’ve seen them before.
Rose: What are they?
The Doctor: Cybermen.

The Age of Steel

The Doctor: I’m the Doctor, by the way. If anyone’s interested.
Rose: And I’m Rose. Hello.
Pete: Even better. That’s the name of my dog. Still, at least I’ve got the catering staff on my side.

Alt-Pete: We could die in there. Why are you doing this?
Rose: Let’s just say I’m doing it for my mom and dad.

Alt-Pete: You okay?
Rose: No.

Mickey: Thing is, I’m staying.
The Doctor: You’re doing what?
Rose: You can’t.
Mickey: It sort of balances out, ’cause this world lost its Ricky. But there’s me. And there’s work to be done with all those Cybermen still out there.
Rose: But you can’t stay.
Mickey: Rose, my Gran’s here. She’s still alive, my old Gran. Remember her? She needs me.
Rose: What about me, what if I need you?
Mickey: Yeah but Rose, you don’t. It’s just you and him isn’t it? We had something a long time ago but… not anymore.

The Idiot’s Lantern

Rose: I thought we’d be going for the Vegas era. You know, the white flares and the—rowr—chest hair.
The Doctor: You are kidding aren’t you? You want to see Elvis, you’ve gotta go to the late 50s. Time before burgers, when they called him “The Pelvis” and he still had a waist. What’s more, you see him in style. {he rides out on a moped.} You goin’ my way, doll?
Rose: Is there any other way to go, Daddi-o? Straight from the fridge, man!
The Doctor: Ah, you speak the lingo.
Rose: Yeah, well, me, Mum and Cliff Richard movies every Bank Holiday Monday.
The Doctor: Ah, Cliff. I knew your mother would be a Cliff fan.

Rose: Where are we off to?
The Doctor: Ed Sullivan TV Studios. Elvis did “Hound Dog’ on one of the shows. There were loads of complaints. If we’re in luck, we’ll just catch it.
Rose: And that would be TV studios in what, New York?
The Doctor: That’s the one. {a double-decker bus goes by.}
Rose: Diggin’ that New York vibe.

The Doctor: Men in black, vanishing police cars. This is Churchill’s England, not Stalin’s Russia.
Rose: Monsters, that boy said. Maybe we should go and ask the neighbors.
The Doctor: That’s what I like about you. The domestic approach.
Rose: Thank you! {pause.} Hold on, was that an insult?

The Doctor: Right then. Nice and comfy. At Her Majesty’s leisure. {to Rose} Union flag?
Rose: Mother went out with a sailor.
The Doctor: I bet she did.

Rose: Will it… that thing, is it trapped for good on video?
The Doctor: That’s right. Just to be on the safe side though, I’ll use my unrivaled knowledge of transtemporal extirpation methods to neutralize the residual electronic pattern.
Rose: You what?
The Doctor: I’m gonna tape over it.
Rose: Just leave it to me. I’m always doing that.

The Impossible Planet

The Doctor about the TARDIS: I don’t know what’s wrong with her. She’s sort of… queasy. Indigestion, like she didn’t want to land.
Rose: Well if you think there’s gonna be trouble, we could always get back inside and go somewhere else. {they laugh}

The Doctor: Hold on. What does that say? {examines the writing} That’s weird, it won’t translate.
Rose: But I thought the TARDIS translated everything—writing as well. It should say English.
The Doctor: Exactly. If that’s not working then it means this writing is old. Very old. Impossibly old. We should find who’s in charge. We’ve gone beyond the reach of the TARDIS’ knowledge—not a good move.

Zach: Oh my god, you meant it.
Scooti Manista: People. Look at that, real people.
The Doctor: That’s us. Hooray!
Rose: Yeah, definitely real. My name’s Rose. Rose Tyler. And that’s The Doctor.

Ida Scott: …and this, this is home.
Zach: Brace yourselves. The sight of it sends some people mad.
Rose: That’s a black hole.
The Doctor: That’s impossible.
Zach: I did warn you.

Ida: This lump of rock is suspended in perpetual geostationary orbit around that black hole without falling in. Discuss.
Rose: And that’s bad, yeah?
The Doctor: Bad doesn’t cover it.

Rose: But if there’s no atmosphere out there, what’s that?
Ida
: Stars breaking up, gas clouds. We have whole solar system’s being ripped apart above our heads before falling into that thing.
Rose: So a bit worse than a storm then.
Ida: Just a bit.
Rose: Just a bit, yeah.

Rose: I’m sorry, what was your name?
Ood: We have no titles. We are as one.
Rose: Um. What are they called?
Danny Bartock: Oh come on. Where have you been living? Everyone’s got one.
Rose: Well not me. So what are they?
Danny: They’re the Ood.
Rose: The Ood?
Danny: The Ood.
Rose: Well that’s… ood.

Toby Zed: It’s buried beneath us—in the darkness, waiting.
Rose: What’s your job, Chief Dramatist?

The Doctor: I’ve trapped you here.
Rose: No. Don’t worry about me. Okay, we’re on a planet that shouldn’t exist, underneath a black hole… with no way out. Yeah, I’ve changed my mind. Start worrying about me.

Rose: I did that job once. I was a dinner lady. Not that I’m calling you a lady. Although I don’t know, you might be. Do you actually get paid, though? Do they give you money?
Ood: The Beast and his armies shall rise from the pit to make war against God.
Rose: I’m sorry?
Ood: Apologies. I said, “I hope you enjoy your meal.”
Rose not so sure: Yeah.

Rose: No signal. That’s the first time I’ve gone out of range. Mind you, even if I could… what would I tell her? Can you build another TARDIS?
The Doctor: They were grown, not built. And with my home planet gone we’re kind of stuck.
Rose: Well, could be worse. This lot said they’d give us a lift.
The Doctor: And then what?
Rose: I don’t know. Find a planet. Get a job. You live a life same as the rest of the Universe.
The Doctor: I’d have to settle down. Get a house or something, a proper house. With… doors and carpets. Me, living in a house. That, that, is terrifying.
Rose: You’d have to get a mortgage.

The Doctor: I promised Jackie I’d always take you back home.
Rose: Everyone leaves home in the end.

Rose: It’s funny ’cause people back home think that space travel’s gonna be all whizzing about, and teleports, anti-gravity. But it’s not, is it? It’s tough.
The Doctor: I’ll see you later.
Rose: Not if I see you first.

Rose: Don’t forget to breathe. Breathing’s good.
Zach: Rose, stay off the comm.
Rose: No chance.

The Satan Pit

The Beast (through the Ood): …and the lost girl, so far away from home. The valiant child who will die in battle so very soon.
Rose: Doctor, what does it mean?
The Doctor: Rose, don’t listen.
Rose: What does it mean?

Rose: Right. So we need to stop them or get out. Or both.
Danny: I’ll take both, yeah? But how?
Rose: You heard the Doctor. Why do you think that thing cut him off? Because he was making sense. He was telling you to think your way out of this.

Rose: Not your best angle, Danny.
Danny: Oy, stop it.
Toby behind Rose: I don’t know. It could be worse.
Rose: Oy!

Zach: We’ve still lost the gravity funnel. We can’t escape the black hole.
Rose: But we stopped him. That’s what the Doctor would have done.
Zach: Some victory. We’re going in.

The Doctor: Sorry about the hijack, Captain. This is the Good Ship TARDIS. Now, first thing’s first. Have you got a Rose Tyler on board?
Rose: I’m here! It’s me! Oh my god! Where are you?
The Doctor: I’m just towing you home. Gravity schmavity. My people practically invented black holes. Well, in fact they did. Couple of minutes we’ll be nice and safe. Oh and Captain, can we do a swap? Say if you give me Rose Tyler I’ll give you Ida Scott. How about that?

Rose: It said I was going to die in battle.
The Doctor: Then it lied. Right! Onwards, upwards! Ida, see you again maybe?
Ida: I hope so.
Rose: And thanks boys!
Ida: Hang on though, Doctor. You never really said. You two, who are you?
The Doctor: Oh… the stuff of legend!

Love & Monsters

The Doctor: You made it worse!
Rose: You said blue!
The Doctor: I said not blue!

The Doctor: Someone wants a word with you.
Rose stepping out of the TARDIS: You upset my mum.
Elton: Great big absorbing creature from outer space and you’re having a go at me?
Rose: No one upsets my mum.

Fear Her

Trish: What the hell was that?
Rose: Drawing. Face of a man.
Trish: What face?
Rose: Best not.

Rose: And what about the Dad from Hell in her wardrobe?
Trish: How many times do I have to tell you? He’s dead.
Rose: Well he’s got a very loud voice for a dead bloke.

Rose: I’ve got cousins. Kids can’t have it all their own way. That’s part of being a family.
The Doctor: What about trying to understand them?
Rose: Easy for you to say. You don’t have kids.
The Doctor: I was a dad once.
Rose: What did you say?

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: 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.

Kel: Maybe he’s gone somewhere.
Rose: Who’s gonna hold his hand now?

Rose: You know what? They keep on trying to split us up but they never ever will.
The Doctor: Never say never ever.
Rose: Nah, we’ll aways be okay, you and me. Don’t you reckon Doctor?
The Doctor: There’s something in the air. There’s something coming.
Rose: What?
The Doctor: A storm’s approaching.

Army of Ghosts

Rose: This is the story of how I died…

Rose: According to the paper, they’ve elected a ghost as MP for Leeds. Now don’t tell me you’re going to sit back and do nothing.
The Doctor: Who you gonna call?
Rose: Ghostbusters!
The Doctor: I ain’t afraid of no ghosts.

Jackie: You’ve changed so much.
Rose: For the better.
Jackie: I suppose.
Rose: Mum, I used to work in a shop.
Jackie: I’ve worked in shops. What’s wrong with that?

Jackie: Do you think you’ll ever settle down?
Rose: The Doctor never will, so I can’t. I’ll just keep on traveling.
Jackie: And he’ll keep on changing. And in forty years time, fifty, they’ll be this woman, this strange woman walking through the marketplace. On some planet a billion miles from Earth. But she’s not Rose Tyler. Not anymore. She’s not even human.

The Doctor: Hm. There goes the advantage of surprise. Still, cuts to the chase. Stay here, look after Jackie.
Rose: I’m not looking after my mum.
The Doctor: Well you brought her.
Jackie: I was kidnapped!
Rose: Doctor, they’ve got guns.
The Doctor: And I haven’t. Which makes me the better person, don’t you think? They can shoot me dead but the moral high ground is mine.

Mickey: It’s alright babe. We beat ’em before, we can beat ’em again. That’s why I’m here. The fight goes on.
Rose: The fight against what?
Mickey: What d’ya think?

Doomsday

Rose: You didn’t need to kill him!
Dalek: Neither did we need him alive.

Rose: Five million Cybermen, easy. One doctor, now you’re scared.

Dalek: The technology is stolen. The Ark is not of Dalek design.
Rose: Then who built it?
Dalek: The Time Lords. This is all that survives of their world.
Rose: What’s inside?
Dalek: The future.

Rose: If these are going to be my last words then you’re going to listen. I met the Emperor. And I took the time vortex and poured it into his head and turned it into dust.

Rose: I’m just supposed to go
The Doctor: Yeah
Rose: To another world and then it gets sealed off.
The Doctor: Yeah.
Rose: Forever. That’s not going to happen.

The Doctor: Where are we? Where did the gap come out?
Rose: We’re in Norway.
The Doctor: Norway, right.
Rose: About 50 miles out of Bergen. It’s called [?]
The Doctor: Dalek?
Rose: [?]. It’s Norwegian for “bad”. It translates as Bad Wolf Bay.

Rose: Am I ever going to see you again?
The Doctor: You can’t.
