Tosh: Tell them what to do. You’re the only that who can stop this. If you don’t, it’s the end of everything! Tommy!
Tommy (Anthony Lewis): Take me. I’m in there, in the ward, in 1918. You have to take me so I can be here now. {they look lost} Just take me!

Gerald (Roderic Culver): Tommy, I think you’d better come with us.
Tommy: Why?
Gerald: Don’t worry. I’m Gerald, this is Harriet. We’ll look after you.
Tommy: Who are you?
Gerald: We’re Torchwood.

Owen: Gets harder every year.
Ianto: Good left hook though.

Gwen: St. Teilo’s Hospital, 1918. There was a time shift. A fracture in the rift means that two slices of time were erupting into each other.
Jack: A slice of 1918 and…?
Gwen: A slice of the future. But we don’t know exactly what slice. It could be tomorrow, it could be a hundred years time.
Jack: What will happen?
Gwen: Chunks of 1918 will start to appear at the hospital. A few at first, then more and more. When the time shift is complete it’ll start a chain reaction.

Gwen: Jack have you got any more of those pretty boys in the freezer?
Jack: Hands off, missy. Tosh got there first.

Gwen: He’s a frozen soldier from 1918.
Jack: Nobody’s perfect.

Tommy: Give you women the vote, equal rights, look what happens, eh?

Jack: A million British soldiers killed during the Great War. It’s like walking into hell. Believe me, I was there.

Tommy: Seems like there’s always a war somewhere.
Tosh: It’s not exactly a war.
Tommy: Looks like one.

Tommy: Did you never wonder if we’re worth saving? The human race?
Tosh: Yes. I think we’re worth saving. Wars and all.

Jack: Okay. Linear time. Screwed up time. Imagine your life is a straight line. From birth to death. Now try drawing that line on the paper without straightening it out.
Gwen: It’s impossible.
Jack: That’s why we’ve gotta stop it.

Owen: No, I understand. I didn’t think you had some fetish for defrosted men. I just, um, don’t want you to get hurt. That’s all. If you have to say goodbye.

Tommy: So I’ll be saving the world in some pajamas. How daft is that?

Jack: I know you. You’re strong enough to do this.
Tosh: Does Tommy know what happens to him?
Jack: No.
Tosh: If he asks then what do I say?

Jack: This time tomorrow he’ll be back in 1918.
Ianto: His own time. Would you go back to yours? If you could?
Jack: Why? Would you miss me?
Ianto: Yup.
Jack: I left home a long time ago. I don’t know where I really belong. Maybe that doesn’t matter anymore.

Tosh: You’re a hero. Do know that? Because you stopped the time shift and saved everyone.. You save us all.
Tommy: I can’t do it.
Tosh: We need you.
Tommy: I don’t want to be a hero. I want to stay here. With you.

Jack: You’ve got one shot, Tosh. That’s all.

Tommy: What am I fighting for?
Tosh: For the future. For me. Because you’re my brave, handsome hero. Tommy, use the key.

Tosh: He trusted me. Right to the end.
Owen: Because you were strong. All of this. Is still here because of you.
Tosh: Because of Tommy. Let’s hope we’re worth it.
