Doctor Who over the years: Episode quotes
Hell Bent
(Welcome to Eddie's Diner, Mermaid Quay, looking pretty much as it did in The Impossible Astronaut. The sole employee has her back to us but we know who she is, in that royal blue mini-dress uniform.)
Clara: Hi. What can I get you?
The Doctor: I don't have any money. (He raises his guitar) But I play.
Clara: Okay. (The Doctor sits on a stool at the counter.) Don't you need to plug that thing in?
The Doctor: Yeah. (He takes off his sunglasses and places them by the transistor radio, then activates them.) You're English.
Clara: You're not.
The Doctor: How did you get out here?
Clara: Magic. Or maybe I went to an airport and caught a plane.
The Doctor: Ah.
Clara: You?
The Doctor: Magic.
(He strums his guitar and the sound comes through the transistor radio, then crackles into the diner's sound system.)
Clara: I believe you. You been travelling?
The Doctor: Yeah, from time to time.
(He plays a slightly melancholy tune on his guitar.)
Clara: Is it a sad song?
The Doctor: Nothing's sad till it's over. Then everything is.
Clara: What's it called?
The Doctor: I think that it's called Clara.
Clara: Tell me about her.

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

Rassilon: What is he doing? What does he want? Revenge?
Ohila: The Doctor does not blame Gallifrey for the horrors of the Time War.
Rassilon: I should hope not.
Ohila: He just blames you.

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

The Doctor: Get off my planet.

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

Gastron: There was a saying, sir, in the Time War.
Rassilon: A saying?
Gastron: The first thing you will notice about the Doctor of War is he's unarmed. For many, it's also the last.

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

Clara: So what was it, the thing you took?
The Doctor: There was only one way to keep Clara safe. I had to wipe some of her memory.
Clara: Of what?
The Doctor: Of me.

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

The Doctor: I told you once, so long ago, that the universe would become a very small place when I'm angry with you. Small enough for you yet? (Ashildr is sitting on one of two tall leather armchairs, by a small table with a chess set on it.) Hello, me.
Ashildr: You don't seem surprised to see me.
The Doctor: At the end of everything, we should expect the company of immortals, so I've been told.
Ashildr: Even the other immortals are gone. It's just me.
The Doctor: The one and only me. Finally, you earn the title, sitting here in a reality bubble at the end of Time itself. How are you sustaining it, by the way?
Ashildr: Brilliantly. I've been watching the stars die. It was beautiful.
The Doctor: No. It was sad.
Ashildr: No, it was both. But that's not something you would understand, is it? You don't like endings. She died, Doctor. Clara died billions of years ago.
The Doctor: You killed her.
Ashildr: No.
The Doctor: You let it happen.
Ashildr: No, I didn't. Neither did you. She did. She died for who she was and who she loved. She fell where she stood. It was sad, and it was beautiful. And it is over. We have no right to change who she was.
The Doctor: Ashildr
Ashildr: Me.
The Doctor: Me, go to hell. By my calculations, you've got about five minutes.
Ashildr: You know why we run, Doctor?
The Doctor: Because it's fun.
Ashildr: Because we know summer can't last forever.
The Doctor: Of course it can. Of course it can. You just have to steal a time machine.

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

The Doctor: Run like hell.
Clara: What?
(The Doctor slumps to the floor.)
The Doctor: Run like hell, because you always need to. Laugh at everything, because it's always funny.
Clara: No. Stop it. You're saying goodbye. Don't say goodbye!
The Doctor: Never be cruel and never be cowardly. And if you ever are, always make amends.
Clara: Stop it! Stop this. Stop it!
The Doctor: Never eat pears. They're too squishy and they always make your chin wet. That one's quite important. Write it down.
Clara: I didn't mean to do this. I'm sorry.
The Doctor: It's okay. It's okay. I went too far. I broke all my own rules. I became the Hybrid

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

Ashildr: I don't think I've got the Chameleon circuit working. The outer shell might be stuck as an American Diner.
Clara: Awesome.
Ashildr: Still no pulse?
Clara: Time isn't healing. I am still frozen.
Ashildr: You know what that means?
Clara: It means my death is a fixed event. The universe depends on it happening.
Ashildr: I'm sorry.
Clara: Why? Why does everybody think I am so scared? We all face the raven in the end. That is the deal. If I go back to Gallifrey, they can put me back, right? On Trap Street, the moment they took me out?
Ashildr: Of course.
Clara: Mind you, seeing as I'm not actually ageing, there's a tiny little bit of wiggle room, isn't there?
Ashildr: Wiggle room?
Clara: Wiggle room. Yeah, you know, wiggle room. We could, er, you know, stop off on the way.
(Clara sets coordinates.)
Ashildr: Where are we going?
Clara: Gallifrey. Like I said, Gallifrey. The long way round.
(The American Diner whizzes through the Vortex.)
