Doctor Who over the years: Episode quotes
The Lazarus Experiment
Tish: That clock tower's beautiful all lit up like that.
Lazarus: It's Southwark Cathedral. One of the oldest churches in London. Been around even longer than I have.
Tish: Well, you're looking pretty good for your age.
Lazarus: Thank you.
Tish: Can I?
Lazarus: Of course.
(She strokes his cheek.)
Tish: Still can't take it in.
Lazarus: I'm still adjusting myself. I've been working toward it for so many years, it's hard to believe the moment's finally arrived.
Tish: And is it like you expected?
Lazarus: I find that nothing's ever exactly like you expect. There's always something to surprise you. Between the idea and the reality, between the motion and the act
The Doctor: Falls the Shadow.
Lazarus: So the mysterious Doctor knows his Eliot. I'm impressed.
Tish: Martha, what are you doing here?
Martha: Tish, get away from him.
Tish: What? Don't tell me what to do.
The Doctor: I wouldn't have thought you had time for poetry, Lazarus, what with you being busy defying the laws of nature and all.
Lazarus: You're right, Doctor. One lifetime's been too short for me to do everything I'd like. How much more I'll get done in two or three or four.
The Doctor: Doesn't work like that. Some people live more in twenty years than others do in eighty. It's not the time that matters, it's the person.
Lazarus: But if it's the right person, what a gift that would be.
The Doctor: Or what a curse. Look at what you've done to yourself.
Lazarus: Who are you to judge me?
Martha: Over here, Tish.
Tish: You have to spoil everything, don't you? Every time I find someone nice, you have to go and find fault.
(Behind Tish's back, Lazarus spasms and falls.)
Martha: Tish, he's a monster!
Tish: I know the age thing's a bit freaky, but it works for Catherine Zeta-Jones. (Then Tish turns and sees the transformation in progress. Lazarus is now a massive bony scorpion with a human face.) What's that?
The Doctor: Run!

***********************

Martha: I thought we were going to go through the blender then.
The Doctor: Really shouldn't take that long just to reverse the polarity. I must be a bit out of practice.
(A naked human man is lying face down on the floor.)
Martha: Oh, God. He seems so human again. It's kind of pitiful.
The Doctor: Eliot saw that, too. This is the way the world ends. Not with a bang, but with a whimper.

***************************

(The ambulance men take away a figure covered in a red blanket.)
Tish: She's here. Oh, she's all right.
The Doctor: Ah, Mrs Jones. We still haven't finished our chat.
(Francine slaps him hard across the face.)
Francine: Keep away from my daughter.
Martha: Mum, what are you doing?
The Doctor: All of the mothers, every time.
Francine: He is dangerous. I've been told things.
Martha: What are you talking about?
Francine: Look around you. Nothing but death and destruction.
(The ambulance leaves.)
Martha: This isn't his fault. He saved us, all of us!
Leo: And it was Tish who invited everyone to this thing in the first place. I'd say technically, it's her fault.
(Tish elbows Leo. There's a big crash, and the Doctor runs off to investigate.)
Francine: Leave him.
(Martha shakes her head and follows the Doctor.)
Tish: Martha?
Francine: Not you, too?
Tish: Sorry.
(Tish runs after Martha.)

**************************

The Doctor: Something else that just kind of escalated, then.
Martha: I can see a pattern developing. You should take more care in the future. And the past. And whatever other time period you find yourself in.
The Doctor: It's good fun, though, isn't it?
Martha: Yeah.
The Doctor: So, what do you say, one more trip?
Martha: No. Sorry.
The Doctor: What do you mean? I thought you liked it.
Martha: I do, but I can't go on like this. One more trip. It's not fair.
The Doctor: What're you talking about?
Martha: I don't want to be just a passenger anymore. Someone you take along for a treat. If that's how you still see me, I'd rather stay here.
The Doctor: Okay, then. If that's what you want.
Martha: Right. But we've already said goodbye once today. It's probably best if you just go. (She turns her back, but he just stands there.) What is it?
The Doctor: What? I said okay.
Martha: Sorry?
The Doctor: Okay.
(Nodding towards the Tardis.)
Martha: Oh, thank you, thank you!
(They hug.)
The Doctor: Well, you were never really just a passenger, were you?
(The Doctor and Martha go into the Tardis, and it dematerialises. The telephone rings.)
Martha [on machine]: Hi, I'm out. Leave a message.
Francine [on machine]: Martha, it's your mother. Please phone me back. I'm begging you. I know who this Doctor really is. I know he's dangerous. You're going to get yourself killed. Please, trust me. This information comes from Harold Saxon himself. You're not safe!
