    • Clara: Doctor? Doctor?
      The First Doctor: Yes, what is it? What do you want?
      Clara: Sorry, but you're about to make a very big mistake. I don't know where I am. It's like I'm breaking into a million pieces and there's only one thing I remember. I have to save the Doctor. He's always looks different. I always know it's him. Sometimes I think I'm everywhere at once, running to save him. Just to save him. Doctor. But he never hears me. Almost never. I blew into this world on a leaf. I'm still blowing. I don't think I'll ever land. I'm Clara Oswald, the Impossible Girl. I was born to save the Doctor.

    • Clarence: Do you hear the Whisper Men? The Whisper Men are near. If you hear the Whisper Men, then turn away your ear. Do not hear the Whisper Men, whatever else you do. For once you've heard the Whisper Men, they'll stop... and look at you.

    • Vastra: Strax! Good of you to join us.
      Strax: It'd better be important. I was in the middle of destroying some very pleasant primitives.

    • Clara: Clara Oswald.
      River: Professor River Song. The Doctor might have mentioned me?
      Clara: Oh, yeah. Yeah, of course he has. Professor Song. Sorry, it's just that I never realized you were a woman.
      Strax: Well, neither did I.

    • Clara: So, how do we get down there? Jump?
      The Doctor: Don't be silly. We fall.

    • Whisper Men: This man must fall as all man must, the fate of all is always dust.

    • Simeon: Welcome to the final resting place of the cruel tyrant. Of the slaughterer of the ten billion, and the vessel of the final darkness. Welcome... to the tomb of the Doctor.

    • Jenny: Blood-soaked?
      Vastra: The Doctor has been many things, but never blood-soaked.
      Dr. Simeon: Tell that to the leader of the Sycorax. Or Solomon the traitor. Or the Cybermen, or the Daleks. The Doctor lives his life in darker hues, day after day, and he will have other names before the end. The Storm. The Beast. The Valeyard.

    • Strax: Spread out, boy, combat formation. They are unarmed.
      Jenny: So are we!
      Strax: Do not divulge our military secrets!

    • Clara: I don't know where I am. I just know I'm running. Sometimes it's like I've lived a thousand lives in a thousand places. I'm born, I live, I die. And always there's the Doctor. Always I'm running to save the Doctor. Again and again and again. And he hardly ever hears me. But I've always been there. Right from the very beginning. The day he started running.

    • River: It's hard to leave when you haven't said goodbye.
      The Doctor: Then tell me because I don't know. How do I say it?
      River: There's only one way I would accept. If you ever loved me, say it like you're going to come back.
      The Doctor: See you around, Professor River Song.
      River: Until the next time... Doctor.
      The Doctor: Don't wait up.

    • Clara: I don't know where I am. I don't know where I am or where I'm been. I was born to save the Doctor, but the Doctor is safe now. I'm the Impossible Girl and my story is done.

    • The Doctor: You're my Impossible Girl. I'm sending you something. Not from my past, from yours. Look up. Look. This is you, Clara. Everything you were or will be. Take it. You blew into the world on this leaf. Hold tight. It will take you home.

    • Clara: I never saw that one. I saw all of you. Eleven faces, all of them you. You're the Eleventh Doctor.
      The Doctor: I said he was me. I never said he was the Doctor.
      Clara: I don't understand.
      The Doctor: My name, my real name. That is not the point. The name I chose is "the Doctor." The name you choose, it's like... like a promise you make. He's the one who broke the promise. Clara! He is my secret.
      The Other Doctor: What I did, I did without choice.
      The Doctor: I know.
      The Other Doctor: In the name of peace and sanity.
      The Doctor: But not in the name of the Doctor.
