Time and Space traveling adventures of a Gallifreyan Time Lord only known as the Doctor and his companions, traveling through time and space.
[repeated line] The Eleventh Doctor: Bow ties are cool.
[repeated line] The Tenth Doctor: Allons-y!
The Tenth Doctor: Need this? [offers the Fifth Doctor his sonic screwdriver] The Fifth Doctor: No, I'm fine, thank you. The Tenth Doctor: [sarcastic] Oh no, of course, you mostly went hands-free didn't you? It was like, "Hey, I'm the Doctor, I can save the universe using a kettle and some string! And look at me, I'm wearing a vegetable."
The Eleventh Doctor: I wouldn't say that. The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. Hey. The good things don't always soften the bad things, but vice-versa, the bad things don't necessarily spoil the good things and make them unimportant.
River Song: Hello Sweetie.
[repeated line] Clara: Run. Run you clever boy, and remember...
[series 3 trailer] Martha Jones: I battle with textbooks. The Tenth Doctor: I battle with monsters. Martha Jones: I've tried to save money. The Tenth Doctor: I've tried to save the universe. Martha Jones: I'm going to be a doctor. The Tenth Doctor: I *am* the Doctor. Martha Jones: Well, let's hope this box is big enough for the both of us.
[repeated line] The Ninth Doctor: Fantastic!
[season 6 open for non-UK markets] Amy Pond: When I was a little girl I had an imaginary friend and when I grew up he came back. He's called The Doctor. He comes from somewhere else. He's got a box called the TARDIS that's bigger on the inside and can travel anywhere in time and space. I ran away with him and we've been running ever since.
[series 1 trailer] The Ninth Doctor: Do you wanna come with me? 'Cause if you do then I should warn you, you're gonna see all sorts of things. Ghosts from the past; Aliens from the future; the day the Earth died in a ball of flame; It won't be quiet, it won't be safe, and it won't be calm. But I'll tell you what it will be: the trip of a lifetime.
The Tenth Doctor: ...The Master, He just showed up again, the same as ever The Fifth Doctor: Oh no. Really? Does he still have that rubbish beard? The Tenth Doctor: No, no beard this time. Well, a wife...
[repeated line] The Tenth Doctor: I'm sorry. I'm so sorry.
The Tenth Doctor: Nah, never. Well, maybe.
The Tenth Doctor: Brilliant!
[series 4 trailer] Donna Noble: There are things waiting in the darkness. Creatures of metal, fire and blood. But he's out there, burning through time, facing a thousand dangers across the stars and never giving up. He looks like a man but he's a legend and his name is the Doctor. He'll come back to save us and this time I'm going to be ready. Then just like that... Donna Noble, The Tenth Doctor: We'll be gone.
The Ninth Doctor: Me? I am the Doctor.
[repeated line] The Eleventh Doctor: Geronimo!
The Twelfth Doctor: Shut up!
The Doctor: "Eureka" is Greek for "this bath is too hot."
The Doctor: Allow me to congratulate you, sir. You have the most totally closed mind that I've ever encountered.
The Doctor: Anybody remotely interesting is mad, in some way or another.
[from series 9 trailer] The Twelfth Doctor: I'm the Doctor. And I save people.
The Doctor: Now drop your weapons or I'll kill him with this deadly jelly baby. Warrior: Kill him, then. The Doctor: What? Warrior: Kill him, then. The Doctor: I don't take orders from anyone. [Eats jelly baby] The Doctor: Take me to your leader.
Sarah: Doctor, are you serious? The Doctor: About what I do, yes. Not necessarily the way I do it.
The Doctor: You can't rule the world in hiding. You've got to come out on the balcony sometimes and wave a tentacle.
The Third Doctor: What's wrong with being childish? I like being childish.
The Doctor: First things first, but not necessarily in that order.
The Doctor: Wait a minute, I know you. You're the Chamberlain. Chamberlain: Yes, that's right sir. The Doctor: I don't like you.
Amelia Rumford: I still don't understand about hyperspace. The Doctor: Well, who does? K9: I do. The Doctor: Oh shut up, K9!
The Doctor: You're a classic example of the inverse relationship bewteen the size of the mouth and the size of the brain.
The Master: I don't know, rocket fire at long range - somehow it lacks that personal touch.
The Doctor: A straight line may be the shortest distance between two points, but it is by no means the most interesting.
[on oil] The Doctor: It's about time the people who run this planet of yours realized that to be dependent on a mineral slime just doesn't make sense.
The Fourth Doctor: Oh, don't listen to me... I never do.
The Doctor: Listen, there are no measurements in infinity. You humans have got such limited little minds. I don't know why I like you so much. Sarah: Because you have such good taste. The Doctor: That's true. That's very true.
Omega: My brothers became Time Lords, while I was abandoned and forgotten. The Doctor: No, not forgotten. All my life I've known of you, and cherished you as our greatest hero. Omega: A hero? [shouts] Omega: I should have been a God!
The Doctor: You're a beautiful woman, probably.
The Doctor: Oh, marvellous. You're going to kill me. What a finely-tuned response to the situation.
The Doctor: Planets come and go. Stars perish. Matter disperses, coalesces, forms into other patterns, other worlds. Nothing can be eternal.
Ace: Master, who's he? The Seventh Doctor: An evil genius. One of my oldest and deadliest of enemies. Ace: [sarcastically] Do you know any nice people. You know, normal people. Not power crazed nutters trying to take over the universe.
The Doctor: You know, the very powerful and the very stupid have one thing in common. They don't alter their views to fit the facts. They alter the facts to fit their views. Which can be uncomfortable if you happen to be one of the facts that need altering.
Tegan: We're perfectly harmless, unfortunately.
The Doctor: I always like to do the unexpected, it takes people by surprise.
The Doctor: Crush the lesser races. Conquer the galaxy. Incredible power, unlimited rice pudding, et cetera, et cetera.
The Fourth Doctor: Would you mind not standing on me, my hat's on fire.
Amelia Rumford: Can I ask you a personal question? The Doctor: Well, I don't see how I can stop you asking. Amelia Rumford: Are you from outer space? The Doctor: No, I'm more from what you would call inner time.
The Doctor: Small though it is, the human brain can be quite effective when used properly.
The Doctor: Once upon a time there were three sisters, and they lived in the bottom of a treacle well. Their names were Olga, Marsha and Irene... Are you listening, Tillie? I feel disorientated. Sarah: This is the disorientation centre. The Doctor: That makes sense.
Capt. Mike Yates: I see. So all we've got to deal with is something which is either too small to see or thirty feet tall, can incinerate you or freeze you to death, turn stone images into homicidal monsters and looks like the devil. The Doctor: Exactly.
Brigadier: You've been agitating for a new assistant ever since Miss Shaw went back to Cambridge. The Doctor: Liz was a highly-qualified scientist. I want someone with the same qualifications. Brigadier: Nonsense. What you need, Doctor, as Miss Shaw has so often remarked, is someone to pass you your test tubes and to tell you how brilliant you are. Miss Grant will fulfill that function admirably.
Countess Scarlioni: Oh, Doctor, I'm quite convinced you're perfectly mad. The Doctor: Only at my worst. Nobody's perfect.
The Doctor: Well, you'd better introduce me. Romana: As what? The Doctor: Oh, I don't know, a wise and wonderful person who wants to help. Don't exaggerate.
Styggron: Resistance is inadvisable.
The Doctor: No. Impossible. I'm fully booked for the next two centuries.
The Doctor: There's no point in being grown up if you can't be childish sometimes.
The Doctor: I'm not helping you, officially. And if anyone happens to ask whether I made any material difference to the welfare of this planet, you can tell them I came and went like a summer cloud.
Leela: The Evil One. The Doctor: Well, nobody's perfect, but that's overstating it a little.
The Doctor: Dreams are important... never underestimate them.
The Doctor: As we learn about each other, so we learn about ourselves.
The Doctor: The best way to find out where you are from is find out where you are going and work backwards.
Adric: Could anyone pass the sodium chloride, please?
The Doctor: In my time I have been threatened by experts. And I don't rate you very highly at all.
Lady Camilla: You're wrong. The Doctor is not weaponless. He has the greatest weapon of all: knowledge.
The Doctor: Don't worry. I always leave things until the last moment.
Brigadier: As long as he does the job, he can wear what face he likes.
Poul: Somebody interrupted Chubb - with both hands.
The Doctor: The trouble with computers, of course, is that they're very sophisticated idiots. They do exactly what you tell them at amazing speed. Even if you order them to kill you. So if you do happen to change your mind, it's very difficult to stop them from obeying the original order. [stops computer from destroying Earth] The Doctor: But not impossible.
Olvir: I'd hate to end the universe by mistake.
The Doctor: Time and tide melts the snowman.
The Doctor: "Only in mathematics will we find truth." Borusa used to say that during my time at the Academy - and now he's setting out to prove it.
Lord Palmerdale: Are you in charge here? The Doctor: No, but I'm full of ideas.
The Doctor: You're working for a madman, you know. Scorby: He pays well.
A Dalek: We must find the traitors. The enemy of the Daleks must be destroyed. Dalek: We are not traitors. We serve our creator Davros. A Dalek: The Supreme Dalek is your ruler! He must be obeyed at all times. Dalek: Davros must be honoured. A Dalek: He must be exterminated. Nothing must interfere in the true destiny of the Daleks! You must be exterminated! Exterminated! [shouts] A Dalek: Exterminated!
The Doctor: Just be your natural horrid self.
The Doctor: I'm not only from another culture but another planet. I am in your terms an alien.
The Doctor: Well, well. The Rani. I can't say I think much about your outfit. Doesn't do a thing for you. The Rani: Your regeneration isn't too appealing either.
The Doctor: How do you feel now? Tegan: Groggy, sore and bad tempered. The Doctor: Almost your old self.
The Doctor: Unless we are prepared to sacrifice our lives for the good of all, then evil and anarchy will spread like the plague.
Adric: So what is a railway station? The Doctor: Well, a place where one embarks and disembarks from compartments on wheels drawn along these tracks by a steam engine - rarely on time Nyssa: What a very silly activity. The Doctor: You think so? As a boy, I always wanted to drive one.
The Doctor: I am the Doctor, whether you like it or not.
Adric: [sitting atop a big gun, hands on controls] I don't know what these levers do, but it's pointing in your direction.
The Doctor: Think about me when you're living your life one day after another, all in a neat pattern. Think about the homeless traveller in his old police box, his days like crazy paving.
The Rani: Outside of these experiments you have absolutely no significance.
The Doctor: That's the trouble with antimatter. You can see the effect but not the cause. It's like being punched on the nose by the invisible man.
The Doctor: [after being shoved by Hermann the butler] I say, what a wonderful butler, he's so violent.
Lethbridge-Stewart: You know, just once I'd like to meet an alien menace that wasn't immune to bullets.
The Fifth Doctor: If the freighter crashes into Earth with you onboard, won't that make it rather difficult for you to carry out your task? I mean, you would be very crumpled.
The Master: But first things first. I've a death to arrange.
The Master: It's always the innocent bystanders who suffer most. The Third Doctor: What's that supposed to mean? The Master: [aims pistol] I'm afraid you're about to become the victims of stray bullets.
The Doctor: [on the TARDIS] As an invasion weapon, you'd have to agree that it's about as offensive as a chicken vol-au-vent.
The Doctor: Rest is for the weary, sleep is for the dead.
The Master: One must rule or serve. That is the basic law of life. Why do you hesitate? Surely it's not loyalty to the Time Lords, who exiled you to one insignificant planet? The Doctor: You'll never understand. I want to see the universe, not to rule it.
The Doctor: My last incarnation... oh, I was never happy with that one. It had a sort of feckless "charm" which simply wasn't *me*!
The Master: You are indeed a worthy opponent, Doctor. It's what gives your destruction its... piquancy.
The Doctor: No, there's something else going on here. I was taken out of time for another reason and I have every intention of finding out what it is!
Eldrad: Where are your weapons? The Doctor: [tapping his head] In here.
The Master: At last, Doctor I've cut you down to size.
The Doctor: And kindly refrain from addressing me as "Doc", Perpugilliam.
The Doctor: I think you'll find, Sir, that I'm qualified to deal with practically everything, if I choose.
Nyssa: You killed my father? The Master: But his body remains useful.
The Doctor: Ahhh... a noble brow. Clear gaze. At least it will be given a few hours sleep. A firm mouth. A face beaming with a vast intelligence. My dear child what on Earth are you complaining about? It's the most extraordinary improvement.
Brigadier: A dream? Really, Doctor. You'll be consulting the entrails of a sheep next.
The Master: I have so few worthy opponents. When they're gone I always miss them.
The Doctor: Unstable? Unstable? Unstable? This is me, Peri! Right now I am as stable as you will ever see me! You must forget how I used to be. I'm a Time Lord. A man of science, temperament, and *passion*!"
The Doctor: You know, I am so constantly outwitting the opposition, I tend to forget the delight and satisfaction of the arts... the gentle art of fisticuffs.
[repeated line after getting eye shot] Dalek: My vision is impaired! I cannot see!
The Third Doctor: Good grief, man, it's as simple as Einstein's Special Theory of Relativity.
The Doctor: Into the matrix. Where the only logic is there isn't any logic.
Cyberman: Effective penetration should be immediate.
[to the Cybermen] The Doctor: You have no home planet, no influence, nothing! You're just a pathetic bunch of tin soldiers skulking around the galaxy in an antique space craft.
The Doctor: More of a clown actually. Would you like to hear my rendering of "On With the Motley"?
Brigadier: Most of their work's so secret, they don't know what they're doing themselves.
The Valeyard: The future? Is it going to be the Doctor's defense that he improves? The Sixth Doctor: Precisely. The Valeyard: This I must see.
The Doctor: Deactivating a generator loop without the correct key is like repairing a watch with a hammer and chisel. One false move and you'll never know the time again.
Hepesh: To the unbeliever, all signs are as dust in the wind.
The Doctor: You see, if you take any progressive series, it can be converted into binary notation. Now, if you take the sum of the integrants and express the result as a power series, then the indices show the basic binary blocks, only I wouldn't do it if I were you.
The Doctor: This is a situation that requires tact and finesse. Fortunately, I am blessed with both.
Sanders: I never think twice about anything. Wastes too much time.
Glitz: Somehow I always feel foolish saying this... Take me to your leader!
Leela: Within the black wall wherein lies paradise. The Doctor: Is that just religious gobbledygook or is that an actual place?
Garron: I admit I had a great struggle with me conscience. Fortunately, I won.
The Doctor: Well, if he really does believe such unimaginable rubbish he must be faced by some unimaginable disaster which has unhinged his mind.
The Doctor: Terran insects. Aerodynamically impossible for them to fly, but they do it. I'm rather fond of bumblebees.
Dalek: We are entombed, but we live on. This is only the beginning. We will prepare, we will grow stronger. When the time is right we will emerge and take our rightful place as [shouts] Dalek: the supreme power of the universe!
The Doctor: What is the one thing evil cannot face, not ever? Tegan: What? The Doctor: Itself.
The Doctor: Well, look at me. I'm old, lacking in vigour, my mind's in turmoil. I no longer know if I'm coming, have gone, or even been. I'm falling to pieces. I no longer even have any clothes sense... Self-pity is all I have left.
[repeated line] Daleks: Exterminate!
The Doctor: I was trying to help. Surely even a blockhead like you can see that!
The Doctor: We're all basically primeval slime with ideas above its station.
[the seventh Doctor's first line] The Doctor: That was a nice nap, now down to business.
The Doctor: Like Alice, I try to believe three impossible things before breakfast.
The Doctor: Marshal, you are quite mad. Marshal: Only if I lose.
The Doctor: This is madness. The Daleks won't thank you for capturing me, they'll kill you. Stein: I didn't quite tell you the truth. I serve the Daleks. I'm a Dalek agent. [Daleks enter and surround The Doctor] Daleks: Exterminate the doctor! [shouting] Daleks: Exterminate the doctor! Exterminate! Exterminate!
The Doctor: It's part of a Time Lord's job to insist on justice for all species.
The Fourth Doctor: [to Leela after she almost knifes him] It's a good thing your tribe never invented firearms... they'd've woken with a start one morning and wiped themselves out.
Turlough: What is it about Earth people that makes them think a futile gesture is a noble one?
Linx: We're sworn enemies, Doctor. Why should you help me? Dr. Who: Because I want something from you. If you will let me de-hypnotise the people and send them home, and help me capture Irongron and his men, then I will assist you in the repairs to your spaceship. The weapons you've made for Irongron you can leave here in the castle. When it's empty, you can take-off, destroying castle and weapons at the same time. Alright, Commander Linx, what do you say? Linx: You wish for my answer, Doctor? Dr. Who: I do. Linx: Then here it is. [shoots the Doctor]
The Master: Oh, my dear Doctor, you have been naïve.
The Doctor: Natural metamorphosis. A form of rebirth. I call it a renewal. And this time... positive triumph. I can sense it in every fibre of my being.
The Doctor: One good, solid hope's worth a cartload of certainty.
Leela: I don't know what to believe anymore. The Doctor: Well that sounds healthy, anyway, Leela; never be certain of anything. It's a sign of weakness.
The Doctor: This is madness. The Daleks won't thank you for capturing me, they'll kill you. Stein: I didn't quite tell you the truth. I serve the Daleks. I'm a Dalek agent. [daleks enter and surround The Doctor] Daleks: Exterminate the doctor! [shouting] Daleks: Exterminate the doctor! Exterminate! Exterminate!
The Doctor: Well, look at me. I'm old, lacking in vigor, my mind's in a turmoil. I no longer know if I'm coming, have gone, or even been. I'm falling to pieces; I no longer even have any clothes sense. Self-pity is all I have left.
Count Federico: He is but one man. The Doctor: You can't count, Count.
Borusa: You have access to the greatest source of knowledge in the universe. The Doctor: Well, I do talk to myself sometimes.
The Seventh Doctor: Time and Time Lord wait for no man.
The Master: The whole world can be ours. I only need two things - your submission and your obedience to my will!
The Doctor: The Rani is a genius. Shame I can't stand her. I wonder if I was particularly nice to her, she might - nope, no, of course not...
Striker: You are a Time Lord, a lord of Time. Are there Lords in such a small domain?
The Doctor: The Time Lords are an immensely civilized race. We can control our own environment - we can live forever, barring accidents and we have the secret of space / time travel.
The Doctor: A hyperactive Peri - too ghastly to contemplate.
The Doctor: To the rational mind, nothing is inexplicable; only unexplained.
The Doctor: Gods don't use transceivers.
Cyberleader: Cybermen can survive more efficiently than animal organisms. That is why we will rule the galaxy.
The Master: Nobody, and nothing, can stop me now!
The Doctor: I had to face my fear. That was more important than just going on living.
Brigadier: I never thought I'd have to fire in anger at a dratted caterpillar.
The Doctor: That was simply transmigration of object. There's a great deal of difference between that and pure science, you know.
Dalek: The Daleks offer you life.
Fitzwilliam: He is said to be the best swordsman in France. The Doctor: Well, fortunately, we are in England.
Yrcanos: We shall release the slaves, and then on to death!
Ohica: You feign ignorance, Time Lord? The Doctor: Please, just call me Doctor. I hate all this bowing and scraping.
Yrcanos: [to the Doctor] You think like a warrior but you do not act like one; it's most perplexing.
The Doctor: He could end up anywhere except where he wants to go. Tegan: Rather like the Tardis, really.
Guard: I think you'll find that most educated people regard mythical convictions as functionally animistic. Personally, I find most experiences border on the existential.
Ace: Do you feel like arguing with a can of deodorant that registers nine on the Richter scale?
Yrcanos: Everyone has a "point" nowadays. I am a man of action, not reason!
The Valeyard: There's nothing you can do to prevent the catharsis of spurious morality.
The Doctor: I don't believe you've met my young friend Ace, an expert in calorification, incineration, carbonization, and inflammation.
The Doctor: I'm sorry to tell you that Romana can look after herself. We're Time Lords. Not like those innocents on Atrios, you know. Time Lords, sent by the Guardian to recover the Key to Time. The Shadow: I know who you are, Doctor, I have always known. I have been waiting for you. I too serve a Guardian, a Guardian equal and opposite in power to the one you serve. The Black Guardian - he who walks in darkness. And you are in the valley of the Shadow!
The Doctor: You remember the Mona Lisa? That dreadful woman with no eyebrows who wouldn't sit still?
The Doctor: The sound of giant slugs!
Castellan Guard: The Castellan will have me shot, sir. The Doctor: Well, that's all right; I'll have him shot.
The Master: The Doctor won't tolerate anyone deliberately playing havoc with his favorite planet.
The Doctor: Superior intelligence and senseless cruelty just do not go together.
The Doctor: Watch it, Mestor!
Biroc: The weak enslave themselves.
The Doctor: I wonder... Leela: What? The Doctor: Shh. I'm wondering.
Stor: I am Commander Stor of the Sontaran Special Space Service. The Doctor: The SSSS. Eh, isn't that carrying alliteration a little far?
The Master: The human body has a basic weakness. One which I shall exploit to assist in the destruction of humanity.
Omega: Absolute power is absolute freedom.
The Doctor: I thought I recognized the stars. Sarah: You've been here before? The Doctor: I was born in these parts. Sarah: Near here? The Doctor: Well, within a couple of billion miles, yes.
The Master: How well you know me, Doctor... my strength is as the strength of ten because my heart is pure.
The Doctor: It's very very old, perhaps even older.
The Doctor: One grows tired of jelly babies, Castellan. One grows tired of almost everything, Castellan, except power.
Leela: It was as if there was a sort of glow all around you. The Fourth Doctor: There was? Well, a kind of St. Elmo's fire, it happens at sea. Leela: St. Elmo's? The Fourth Doctor: Yes, it causes a sort of halo effect around the masts of ships. Leela: Halo? The Fourth Doctor: Why do you keep repeating everything I say, you're not a parrot, are you? Leela: Parrot?
Perpugilliam 'Peri' Brown: Is there any intelligent life on this planet? The Doctor: Apart from me, you mean?
[repeated line] Cyberleader: Excellent!
The Doctor: He's gone to see a man about a god.
[about to be accused of murder again] The Doctor: You don't think?... You do think.
Count Federico: You can no more tell the stars than I can tell my chamber pot.
The Master: Who in the whole galaxy is not my inferior? There is not one creature!
Romana: You mean you didn't believe his story? The Doctor: No. Romana: But he had such an honest face. The Doctor: Romana, you can't be a successful crook with a dishonest face, can you?
Dalek: We are the superior beings!
The Doctor: I've got a pistol. Sarah: But you'd never use it. The Doctor: True. But they don't know that, do they?
D84: It is a Laserson probe. It can punch a fist-sized hole through six-inch armour plate, or take the crystals from a snowflake one by one.
The Master: I'm afraid your about to become the victim of stray bullets.
Organon: [introducing himself to the Doctor] Astrologer extraordinary. Seer to princes and emperors. The future foretold, the past explained, the present... apologised for.
The Doctor: This may be the greatest miscalculation since life crawled out of the seas on this miserable planet.
The Doctor: I never carry weapons. If people see you mean them no harm, they never hurt you. Nine times out of ten.
Adric: Will Romana be all right? The Doctor: All right? She'll be superb.
The Master: Ah, the tribal taboos of army etiquette. I find it difficult to identify with such primitive absurdities.
The Doctor: A little gratitude wouldn't irretrievably damage my ego.
The Doctor: Maybe I am getting too young for this sort of thing.
Brigadier: [ordering his men to fire on a monster] Chap with the wings - five rounds, rapid.
Davros: For the last time. I am your creator! You must, you *will* obey me! Dalek: We obey no-one. We are the superior beings! [shouts] Dalek: Exterminate!
