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.)

Doctor Who over the years: Episode quotes
The Husbands Of River Song
River: And now that you've met me, you'll do your very best to forget me.
The Doctor: River!
Nardole: Oi! Doctor Song to you. Sometimes Professor, but mainly Doctor.
River: Don't use my name. Ever. How do you know me?
The Doctor: Well, it's a tiny bit complicated. People usually need a flowchart.
River: It doesn't matter. If either of you use my name again, I will remove your organs in alphabetical order. Any questions?
The Doctor: Which alphabet? (grin fades) Sorry, you really didn't want these questions, did you?

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

Hydroflax: I'll have you flogged and flayed and burnt. I will crush every last remnant of you from this universe.
River: How dare you! I'm your wife.
Hydroflax: You planned to murder me!
River: Don't change the subject.

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

River: I'm so sorry. This is my husband, Ramone.
The Doctor: Another one? Are you going to kill him, too?
Ramone: We're not actually married.
River: Ah, we are, in fact. I wiped it from your memory.
Ramone: Why?
River: Well, you were being annoying

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

River: I need time travel. I need this Tardis.
The Doctor: I'm sorry. The word steal. Somebody said steal.
River: Yes. We're going to steal this box. Hush, you wouldn't understand.
The Doctor: You can't.
River: Why can't I?
The Doctor: You can't just steal a Ta. A box.
River: Why not?
The Doctor: Look, it says Police.
River: I have a key.
(River produces a Yale type key and opens the Tardis door.)
The Doctor: Okay. This er Damsel person. He sounds, he sounds pretty dangerous. Ish.
River: It's a time machine. I can take it, do whatever I want for as long as I like and pop it back a second later. He'll never know it was gone.
The Doctor: Yes, he will.
River: How?
The Doctor: He'll just know.
River: Well, he's never noticed before.
The Doctor: Maybe he'll notice now.
(River bursts out laughing.)
River: I'll see you on Temple Beach. (kisses Ramone) I've already picked out your swimwear.
Ramone: Okay, but be careful.
River: Absolutely not. You, with me. Bring the head.
(River goes inside the Tardis.)
Ramone: Please, look after her for me.
(Ramone starts to walk away, then stops. River pops her head out of the Tardis.)
River: Oh, before you come in, you'd better prepare yourself for a shock. It's not as snug as it looks.
(She goes back inside.)
The Doctor: Finally.
Ramone: Finally?
The Doctor: It's my go. Oh. My, God! Oh, it's bigger...
River: Well, yes.
The Doctor: ...On the inside...
River: We need to concentrate.
The Doctor: ...Than it is...
River: I know where you're going with this, but I need you to calm down.
The Doctor: ...On the outside!
River: You've certainly grasped the essentials.
The Doctor: My entire understanding of physical space has been transformed! Three-dimensional Euclidean geometry has been torn up, thrown in the air and snogged to death! My grasp of the universal constants of physical reality has been changed forever. (River has gone down the stairs.) Sorry. I've always wanted to see that done properly.

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

The Doctor: We're being threatened by a bag! By a head in a bag!

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

Flemming: Is the gentleman here for dinner?
The Doctor: Yes, he is.
Flemming: Excellent! I'll have the chef prepare him immediately.
The Doctor: No, you won't.
River: Er, he will in fact be joining me to eat.
Flemming: I was about to suggest that force-feeding might be required

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

The Doctor: What do you think, by the way?
River: Of what?
The Doctor: My new body.
River: Oh, I'll let you know. I've only seen the face.

Apparently the first two episodes are called 'Spyfall Part 1' and 'Spyfall Part 2'!

I can't make it past the first 20 seconds of that trailer.
Even if she was playing Romana, she'd still be cringeworthily unwatchable.

Doctor Who over the years: Episode quotes
The Return Of Dr. Mysterio
Young Grant: What are you doing?
The Doctor: Take a look at that picture.
(Clark Kent talking to Mrs Olsen.)
Young Grant: Okay.
The Doctor: Now this one. (Superman) Take a good, long look. It takes a moment to see it.
Young Grant: See what?
The Doctor: Superman and Clark Kent are one and the same person.
Young Grant: Are you serious?
The Doctor: Yeah. Look, I drew specs on Superman.
Young Grant: Everyone knows they're the same person.
The Doctor: Well, Lois Lane doesn't, and she's a reporter.

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

The Doctor: Why did they call him Spider-Man? Don't they like him?
Young Grant: He was bitten by a radioactive spider, and guess what happened?
The Doctor: Radiation poisoning, I should think.
Young Grant: No, he got special powers.
The Doctor: What, vomiting, hair loss and death? Fat lot of use

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

Young Grant: Who are you?
The Doctor: The Doctor.
Young Grant: Yeah, but who are you?
The Doctor: The Doctor.
Young Grant: Which one, though? There's lots of doctors.
The Doctor: The one. I'm the main one. The original. I started it. They're all based on me. Now everyone who wants to sound clever calls themselves Doctor. Bandwagon!
Young Grant: In a comic book, you know what you'd be called? Doctor Mysterio.
The Doctor: Oh, I like that. Doctor Mysterio! I'll have that

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

Nardole: Mister Brock? Er, Mister Brock? Mister Brock? Mister Brock.
Brock: Apparently we have one more question.
Nardole: Yes. Where is the little boys' room?
Brock: I think you'll find the restrooms to the left, on your way out.
Nardole: No, not the restrooms, the little boys' room.
Brock: If you successfully locate the restrooms, I think you'll find everything you need in there.

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

The Doctor: Why aren't you looking at me?
Teen Grant: I don't want to.
The Doctor: You're not looking at anyone. Are you shy now? Is that floor really interesting?
Teen Grant: I'm not shy. I just can't stop it.
The Doctor: Can't stop what?
Teen Grant: The X-ray vision.
The Doctor: Oh.
Teen Grant: I'm in hell. Naked hell. I just can't look at people.

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

The Doctor: Grant, this is insane. Look, I'm me, the Doctor, and even I think this is insane.

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

The Doctor: That's what Harmony Shoal is signalling to. Shall we pop over and have a look? Pretty sure no-one's on board.
Nardole: How do you know? Did you scan for lifeforms?
The Doctor: No. All the lights are off.
Nardole: Mmm.
