  • Quotes

    • (After dispatching the Family, the Doctor goes back to see Joan)
      Joan: You look the same. Goodness, you must forgive my rudeness. I… find it difficult to look at you. Doctor, I must call you Doctor. Where is he, John Smith?
      The Doctor: He's in here somewhere.
      Joan: Like a story. Could you change back?
      The Doctor: Yes.
      Joan: Will you?
      The Doctor: No.
      Joan: I see. Well, then… He was braver than you in the end, that ordinary man. You chose to change; he chose to die.
      The Doctor: Come with me.
      Joan: I'm sorry?
      The Doctor: Travel with me.
      Joan: As what?
      The Doctor: My companion.
      Joan: But that's not fair. What must I look like to you, Doctor? I must seem so very small.
      The Doctor: No. We could start again; I'd like that. You and me, we could try at least, because everything that John Smith is and was, I'm capable of that too.
      Joan: I can't.
      The Doctor: Please come with me.
      Joan: I can't.
      The Doctor: Why not?
      Joan: John Smith is dead, and you look like him.
      The Doctor: But he's here, inside. If you look in my eyes.
      Joan: Answer me this, just one question, that's all. If the Doctor had never visited us, never chosen this place on a whim, would anybody here have died? (The Doctor cannot answer her) You can go.
