    • (After spaceship crashes)
      The Doctor: It's blocked off.
      Rose: We're miles from the centre. The city must be gridlocked. The whole of London must be closing down.
      The Doctor: I know. I can't believe I'm here to see this! This is fantastic!
      Rose: Did you know this was gonna happen?
      The Doctor: Nope.
      Rose: Do you recognize the ship?
      The Doctor: Nope.
      Rose: Do you know why it crashed?
      The Doctor: Nope.
      Rose: Oh, I'm so glad I've got you.
      The Doctor: I bet you are. This is what I travel for, Rose, to see history happening right in front of us.
      Rose: Well, let's go and see it. Never mind the traffic, we've got the TARDIS.
      The Doctor: Um, better not. They've already got one spaceship in the middle of London. I don't wanna shove another one on top.
      Rose: Yeah, but yours looks like a big blue box. No one's gonna notice.
      The Doctor: Oh, you'd be surprised. Emergency like this, there'll be all kinds of people watching. Trust me, the TARDIS stays where it is.
      Rose: So, history is happening and we're stuck here?
      The Doctor: Yes, we are.
      Rose: We could always do what everybody else does.
      (The Doctor looks at her, confused)
      Rose: We could watch it on TV.
