The New World

Rhys Williams (Kai Owen): You okay?
Gwen Cooper (Eve Myles): Yeah. Yeah. Just, you know, bad dream.
Rhys: What about?
Gwen: What d’you think? Torchwood.

Wales, UK 8a.m.

Rhys: Don’t be so suspicious.
Gwen: What are they flying past for?
Rhys: Because they can. This is God’s own country, that’s all. Just looking. Stop it.

Gwen: So. I’m inside, on my own. It’s midnight. Not a sound to be heard. When I looked up, and a woman came out of the sky. Ah! Shining, she was. Like moonlight. Her eyes white—blazing white. And then she started to sing. Like a thousand choirs. One woman with a thousand voices. And it was beautiful—
Rhys: That’s enough, don’t you think?
Gwen: Who’s being paranoid now?
Rhys: You promised me we’d keep it away from Anwyn.
Gwen: Yeah, but be fair. She’s too young. She thinks it all sounds like a fairytale.
Rhys: It was a nightmare, Gwen. Your life back then was a living nightmare. {there’s a knock at the door}. There’s someone at the door!
Gwen: Sh!
Rhys: What if—?
Gwen: Sh!

Rhys: Hey hey. We’re safe, sweetheart. No one knows we’re here. All that stuff, all that nonsense gone. No more Torchwood, it’s gone.

Rhys: Oh you are so cheating!
Gwen: Cheating? How can I cheat painting a wall? Only a man could turn this into a competition.

Mary: Look at her, though. She’s huge.
Gwen: She’s perfectly normal, mum.
Mary: Don’t you be a fool, girl. What are you feeding her, lard?
Gwen: Yes, mum. I’m feeding her lard. Keep telling her that. And by the time she’s thirteen she’ll have a complete psychological complex.
Rhys: Stop it right now, you two.

Rhys: Every time you investigate something you end up in danger, Gwen.
Gwen: ‘Cause I can help.
Rhys: Don’t you dare.
Gwen: But—
Rhys: I said don’t you dare! You got that?! Don’t you bloody dare, Gwen! The thing is, right, if you think Miracle Day is like a Torchwood crisis others will think the same, won’t they? Then they’ll come looking for you with guns. Like they did in the old days.
Gwen: That was—
Rhys: We shouldn’t even be in the city. There’s cameras everywhere! This is different now. You’ve got a daughter.

Gwen: Let’s go home.
Rhys: Yes.
Gwen: Let’s go home.

Gwen: So much for tying him up.
Rhys: I’ve never tied up a person!

Gwen: “Men are good at knots.” How many times have you told me that?
Rhys: At Christmas!

Rex: You know, it would really help if I could hear myself think! What the hell is it doing?
Rhys: It’s a tourist thing.
Gwen: No. No, I don’t think it is.

Cardiff, UK

Gwen: Right. So that’s sorted. Rhys, you take Anwyn to my mother’s, keep her safe and sound. Jack, if you’ve got access to weapons what else have you got? I’ve still got [?] but everything else is gone.
Rhys: I knew it though. Didn’t I say? First sign of trouble you go running off with Jack Harkness.
Gwen: What choice have I got? I mean they rebuilt the tower, now we rebuild Torchwood.

Rendition

Heathrow Airport, London, U.K. 11 am

Gwen: How’s that cut on your arm?
Jack: I’ll survive. I’m mortal, not dying. Well technically I guess I am dying, but slowly.
Gwen: But this thing that’s happening to the world—this miracle. It must have something to do with you.
Jack: Great, so it’s my fault?
Gwen: Can’t be a coincidence, Jack.
Rhys: Of course it’s not a coincidence. Doesn’t mean to say it’s his fault.
Jack: Rhys, are you defending me?
Rhys: Well it’s like it all got switched, isn’t it? Nothing to do with Jack if the wires got crossed. Everything mortal becomes immortal. So every immortal becomes mortal. See? I can be useful.

Escape to L.A.

Gwen: Anyway, so how’s my little girl?
Rhys: Don’t call me that, Gwen.
Gwen: Very funny.

Gwen: Just get my dad out, Rhys, and I’ll phone you tonight.
Rhys: It’s already tonight!

Rhys: I did what you said. I made a fuss about getting him moved.
Gwen: Okay, look, I haven’t got time for this, sweetheart. Just tell me, can you get him out of there?
Rhys: Yes, I can. Shall I go ahead?
Gwen: Oh I love you, I love you. I love you I love. Just do it and leave me alone.

Rhys: The government stepped in to prop up the NHS. They’re spending millions they said. They’re setting up these sort of camps to help people.
Gwen: Overflow camps?
Rhys: Ay, that’s it. And I got your dad inside the South Wales site.
Gwen: Okay, Rhys, listen to me. Do not let them go. Do not let them take my father. I haven’t got time to explain, just, just bloody move!
Rhys: They just moved him out.
Gwen: Then stop them, okay? This is bloody Phicorp, Rhys, and they are up to something.

The Categories of Life

Gwen: Who’s with Anwen?
Rhys: No one. I left her with petrol and a cigarette lighter.

Cowbridge Overflow Camp, Wales, U.K.

Gwen: Bloody categories. All the things I fought with Torchwood. And what stops me? Red tape.
Rhys: We’ll find another way, Gwen.
Gwen: Yes, and I’ll tell you what it is. We’re gonna break in here, we’re gonna find my father, and we’re gonna get him out. Tonight.

Rhys: Just like the old days.
Gwen: No it’s not. It’s worse. It only ever gets worse.

Rhys: They had me running patients to the burn center.
Gwen: Burn center?

The Middle Men

Rhys: Oh my god, I was driving them to the modules! I was driving living people into the ovens!
Gwen: You weren’t to know, all right? You were just doing your job.
Rhys: Yeah? Well I’m not doing it anymore. I quit the bastard thing.

Rhys: This Captain Harkness must have taken a shine to me. He had that look about him, you know. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

Rhys: Tell her yourself.
Mary Cooper: No. I’m watching TV.
