Doctor Who over the years: Episode quotes
City Of Death Part 1
Kerensky: But I can proceed no further, Count. Research costs money. If you want results, we must have the money.
Scarlioni: I assure you, Professor, money is no problem.
Kerensky: So you tell me, Count Scarlioni. So you tell me everyday. Money is no problem. Look, what you want me to do about these equipment invoices? Write no problem on them and send them back?
Scarlioni: Will a million francs ease the immediate cash-flow situation?
Kerensky: Yes, Count. That will help admirably. But I will shortly need a great deal more.
Scarlioni: Yes, of course, Professor, of course. Nothing must stand in the way of the work.
(A black clad man with a white beard enters.)
Hermann: Your Excellency?
Scarlioni: Ah, Hermann. That Gainsborough didn't fetch enough. I think we'll have to sell one of the Bibles.
Hermann: Sir?
Scarlioni: Yes, the Gutenberg.
Hermann: May I suggest we tread more carefully, sir? It would not be in our best interest to draw too much attention to ourselves. Another rash of priceless treasures on the market could
Scarlioni: Yes, I know, Hermann. I know. Just sell it discreetly.
Hermann: Discreetly, sir? Sell a Gutenberg Bible discreetly?
Scarlioni: Well, as discreetly as possible. Just do it, will you?
Hermann: Yes, sir. Of course, sir.
City Of Death Part 2
Hermann: Excuse me, my lady. The people you wished to speak to are here.
Countess: Good, Hermann. Show them in.
Hermann: Yes, my lady.
(The Countess closes up a Chinese Puzzle box. The Doctor is pushed into the room by Hermann, at gun point. He falls onto the carpet. Romana and Duggan walk in unaided)
The Doctor: I say, what a wonderful butler. He's so violent. Hello, I'm called the Doctor. That's Romana, that's Duggan. You must be the Countess Scarlioni and this is clearly a delightful Louis Quinze chair. May I sit in it? I say, haven't they worn well? Thank you, Hermann, that'll be all.
Countess: Doctor, you're being very pleasant with me.
The Doctor: Well, I'm a very pleasant fellow.
Countess: But I didn't invite you here for social reasons.
The Doctor: Yes, I could see that the moment you didn't invite me to have a drink. Well, I will have a drink now you come to mention it. Yes, do come in, everybody. (The Doctor gets up and goes to the decanter and glasses on a side table and pours.) Romana, sit down over there. Duggan. Now, Duggan, you sit there. Do sit down if you want to, Count. Oh, all right. Now, isn't this nice?
Countess: The only reason you were brought here was to explain exactly why you stole my bracelet.
The Doctor: Ah, well, it's my job, you see. I'm a thief. And this is Romana, she's my accomplice. And this is Duggan. He's the detective who's been kind enough to catch me. That's his job. You see, our two lines of work dovetail beautifully.
Countess: Very interesting.
The Doctor: Yes.
Countess: I was rather under the impression that Mister Duggan was following me.
The Doctor: Ah. Well, you're a beautiful woman, probably, and Duggan was trying to summon up the courage to ask you out to dinner, weren't you, Duggan?
Countess: Who sent you?
The Doctor: Who sent me what?
Countess: Doctor, the more you try to convince me that you're a fool, the more I'm likely to think otherwise. Now, it would only be the work of a moment to have you killed.
The Doctor: What?
Countess: Put it down.
[i]((Romana has picked up the box.)[/]
Romana: It's one of those isn't it?
Countess: Yes, it's a very rare and precious Chinese puzzle box. You won't be able to open it so put it down.
(Romana opens it and takes out the green bracelet.)
Romana: Oh, look.
Scarlioni: Yes. Very pretty, isn't it.
Romana: Very. Where's it from?
Scarlioni: From? It's not from anywhere. It's mine.
(Scarlioni takes the bracelet from Romana.)
Countess: My dear, these are the people who stole it from me at the Louvre.
The Doctor: Hello there.
Scarlioni: How very curious. Two thieves enter the Louvre gallery and come out with a bracelet. Couldn't you think of anything more interesting to steal?
The Doctor: Well, I just thought it was awfully pretty and a terribly unusual design. Of course, it would have been much nicer to have stolen one of the pictures, but I've tried that before and all sorts of alarms go off which disturbs the concentration.
Scarlioni: Yes, it would. So you stole the bracelet simply because it's pretty?
The Doctor: Yes. Well, I think it is. Don't you?
Scarlioni: Yes.
Countess: My dear, I don't think he's as stupid as he seems.
Scarlioni: My dear, nobody could be as stupid as he seems.
The Doctor: Oh.
Scarlioni: This interview is at an end.
The Doctor: Good. Well, we'll be off. A quick stagger up the Champs Elysees, perhaps a bite at Maxims. What do you think, Romana?
Romana: Maxims
Scarlioni: I think a rather better idea would be if Hermann were to lock you into the cellar. I should hate to lose contact with such fascinating people.
(Hermann moves forward, and Duggan picks up the chair he was sitting in to hit him with it.)
The Doctor: Ah. Duggan, what are you doing? For heavens sake, that's a Louis Quinze.
Duggan: But you're not going to let them lock us up
The Doctor: Just behave like a civilised guest. I do beg your pardon, Count.
Scarlioni: Thank you.
The Doctor: Now, Hermann, if you'd just be kind enough to show us to our cellar, we'd be terribly grateful. Do come along, my good chap.
(Hermann escorts the Doctor, Romana and Duggan out at gunpoint.)
Scarlioni: You really should be more careful with your trinkets, my dear. After all, we do have a Mona Lisa to steal.
City Of Death Part 3
(Romana breaks in to the dark cafe quietly through the front. Duggan smashes a pane of glass to open the back door. They meet by the bar.)
Duggan: I thought these places were meant to be open all night.
Romana: You should go into partnership with a glazier. You'd have a truly symbiotic working relationship.
Duggan: What?
Romana: I'm just pointing out that you break a lot of glass.
Duggan: You can't make an omelette without breaking eggs.
(He pours her a glass of red wine, opening the bottle by breaking the neck against the counter.)
Romana: If you wanted an omelette, I'd expect to find a pile of broken crockery, a cooker in flames and an unconscious chef.
Duggan: Listen, I get results.
Romana: Do you? The Count's got the Mona Lisa.
Duggan: Yeah, all seven of them. You know what I don't understand?
Romana: I expect so.
Duggan: There are seven potential buyers and exactly seven Mona Lisas.
Romana: Yes.
Duggan: Yet six of them have been sitting bricked up for centuries.
Romana: What, buyers?
Duggan: No, Mona Lisas. How did the Count know where they were? How did he know where to get them?
Romana: Taxes the mind, doesn't it.
City Of Death Part 4
The Doctor: I'd like to make an appointment with Count Scarlioni at his earliest convenience, if you don't mind, that is. (The Doctor backs into the room, facing a thug with a gun. He nearly bumps into the maid.) Ah, someone in authority. I wonder, would you be kind and tell the Count that I wait upon him, please? There's a good girl. (The maid leaves.) The silent type, eh? I once knew a boy like you. Never said a word, very taciturn. Well, I said to him, there's no point in talking if you've got nothing to say. Did well in the end, though. Name of Shakespeare. Ever read any Shakespeare? Countess?
Countess: A little. (She goes to the back of the room and tweaks the head of a statuette. A panel in the wall slides up and she removes a leather bound volume from the secret library.) Hamlet. The first draft.
The Doctor: What? It's been missing for centuries.
Countess: It's quite genuine, I assure you.
The Doctor: I know. I recognise the handwriting.
Countess: Shakespeare's.
The Doctor: No, mine. He'd sprained his wrist writing sonnets. Wonderful stuff. To be or not to be, that's the question. Whether tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune or to take arms against a sea of troubles and. Take arms against a sea of troubles? That's a mixed. I told him that was a mixed metaphor and he would insist.
Countess: Oh Doctor, I'm quite convinced that you're perfectly mad.
The Doctor: Only Nor-norwest. Nobody's perfect. If you think I'm mad because I say I met Shakespeare, where do you think your precious Count got that?
Countess: He's a collector. He has money and contacts.
The Doctor: Contacts? Human contacts? How much do you really know about him, eh? I think rather less than you imagine.

Doctor Who over the years: Episode quotes
The Creature From The Pit Part 1
The Doctor: Did you get those things off me?
Huntsman: Yes.
The Doctor: Thank you very much.
Huntsman: Kill him.
The Doctor: What? And just as we're all getting on so well?
Huntsman: Kill him.
The Doctor: Look, I don't want to stand on protocol or anything like that, but couldn't you at least do the done thing and take me to your leader?
(The first swordsman is ready to swing when the older woman from the pit speaks.)
Karela: Wait.
(The swordsman manages to miss.)
The Doctor: Wait! Are you in charge here?
Karela: I am.
The Doctor: Thank you very much. You saved my life and I am a doctor. What are those things?
Karela: Wolfweeds.
The Doctor: Weeds? What, plant weeds?
Karela: Of course. Specially grown in the Lady Adrasta's nurseries.
The Doctor: Good lord. If I were you, I'd introduce her to geraniums before it's too late.
Karela: What are you doing in the Place of Death?
The Doctor: Oh, just pottering around. I have this insatiable curiosity, you see. Why do you call it the Place of Death?
Karela: Because anyone found here is automatically condemned to death.
The Creature From The Pit Part 2
Romana: What is that thing in the pit?
Adrasta: We call it the Creature.
Romana: Ah, that's original. But what kind of creature is it?
Adrasta: Hard to say, really.
Romana: Why is that?
Adrasta: Our researchers divide into two categories. The ones who have got close enough to find out something about it.
Romana: Yes?
Adrasta: And the ones who are still alive
The Creature From The Pit Part 3
Romana: Who are you?
Organon: Oh, don't bother about that now. My friend's trapped in there.
Romana: The Doctor?
Organon: Yes. Oh, I beg your pardon. Do you know him?
Romana: Yes, very well.
Organon: Ah. Nice fellow. Do you know the celestial circumstances of his birth?
Romana: The what?
Organon: When was he born?
(Adrasta and Karela enter.)
Romana: Oh, about seven hundred and fifty years ago, so he says.
Adrasta: I thought you were dead. Why haven't you died?
Organon: I'm sorry, my lady. It was an oversight.
Adrasta: Why didn't the Creature kill you?
Organon: A favourable conjunction of the stars, my lady.
Adrasta: Well, we'll just have to see that they don't continue like that for much longer.
The Creature From The Pit Part 4
Romana: I did calculate our chances of success at 74,384,338 to 1 against.
The Doctor: What? 74,384,338? Why, that's extraordinary!
Romana: Why?
The Doctor: Well, that's my lucky number!

Ended up watching The Daemons as well.

Now reading The Handbook ... the unofficial 'history' of the show.
It's renaming of An Unearthly Child is mindboggling though. WTF???

If it is, all the volumes are highly recommended

Just looking back it probably is that one along with the other Doctor handbooks which have been republished in one volume by Telos but seeing as they aren't BBC have had to call it unofficial.

It's a combined effort, covers all of them up to McGann. Fascinating if extremely nerdy.

That last sentence describes half the people on here.
