    • The Doctor: Appalapachia.
      Amy: Say it again.
      The Doctor: Appalapachia. Appalapachia.
      Rory: Appalapachia.
      The Doctor: Appalapachia.

    • Amy: Have you seen my phone?
      The Doctor: Your phone?
      Amy: Yeah.
      The Doctor: Your mobile telephone. I bring you to a paradise planet two billion light-years from Earth and you want to update... Twitter?
      Amy: Sunsets, spires, soaring silver colonnades. It's a camera phone.
      The Doctor: On the counter by the DVDs.
      Amy: Thank you.

    • The Doctor: Ha ha! How do I look?
      Rory: Ridiculous.
      The Doctor: Glasses are cool, see? (puts them on Rory) Oh, yes. Hello, handsome man.
      Rory: Oh, hello.

    • Future Amy: And there he is, the voice of God. Survive, because no one's going to come for you. Number one lesson. You taught me that.
      The Doctor: Is that really all I taught you?
      Future Amy: Don't you lecture me, Blue Box Man Flying Through Time and Space on Whimsy. All I've got, all I've had for 36 years, is cold hard reality. So no, I don't have a sonic screwdriver, because I'm not off on a romp. I call it what it is, a probe. And I call my life what it is. Hell.

    • Future Amy: (putting on the spectacles) They look ridiculous.
      Rory: That's what I told him. Still, anything beats a fez, eh?

    • Amy: You know when sometimes you meet someone, so beautiful. And then you actually talk to them and five minutes later they're as dull as a brick. And then there's other people, and you think, "Not bad, they're okay." And then you get to know them and--and their face just... sort of becomes them. Like their personality's written all over it. And they turn into something so beautiful.
      Amy and Future Amy: Rory's the most beautiful man I've ever met.

    • Amy: Please... do it for him.
      Future Amy: Ah, you. You're asking me to defy destiny, causality, the nexus of Time itself, for a boy.
      Amy: You're Amy. He's Rory. And yes I am.

    • Future Amy: Right, okay, this is big news. This is temporal earthquake time. I'm officially changing my own future. Hold on to your spectacles. In my past I saw my future-self refuse to help you. And I'm changing that future and agreeing. Every law of time says that shouldn't be possible.
      The Doctor: Yes, except sometimes knowing your own future is what enables you to change it. Especially if you're bloody-minded, contradictory, and completely unpredictable.
      Rory: So basically, if you're Amy, then.
      The Doctor: Yes. if anyone can defeat predestiny, it's your wife.

    • Rory: Can you unlock them?
      Future Amy: Yeah. Give me a minute and your cutest smile. That's the one.
      Rory: Can you stop flirting with me? You're old enough to be my...
      Future Amy: I've known you my whole life. How many games of "Doctors and Nurses"...?
      Rory: Shhh.
      Future Amy
      : Don't get coy now.

    • The Doctor: Look, we take this Amy, we leave ours. There can only be one Amy in the TARDIS. Which one do you want? Your choice.
      Rory: This isn't fair. You're turning me into you.
