      • Farrah: I don't know what it is about androids. I know it's silly. Do you know what I mean?
        The Doctor: Funny thing: some androids feel that way about humans.

      • Farrah: A swordsman does not fear death if he dies with honour.
        The Doctor: Then he's an idiot.

      • Farrah: What are you doing?
        The Doctor: Calling my dog.
        Farrah: I don't see any dog.
        The Doctor: Well, of course not. He hasn't arrived yet.

      • The Doctor: Look, I don't like to say "I told you so" but I told you so.

      • Prince Reynart: Why don't you kill me, Grendel, and get it over with?
        Grendel: Never rush your pleasures, my dear Reynart.

      • Farrah: Be careful, Swordmaster. He's not as young as he used to be.
        The Doctor: Who is?

      • Farrah: I don't now what it is about androids. I know it's silly. You know what I mean.
        The Doctor: Ummm. Funny thing, some androids feel that way about humans.

      • [The Doctor proposes that Zarek and Farrah search for the Prince, while his android double, "George", is crowned King of Tara.]
        Zarek: Doctor, I see only two objections to your plan.
        The Doctor: Only two?
        Zarek: What if the android breaks down?
        The Doctor: Oh, well, I can't guarantee you anything, but if I had the proper tools…
        Zarek: Second problem… Security.
        The Doctor: Security? Well, only the three of us need know of "George's" existence.
        Zarek: Precisely. Farrah I can trust…
        The Doctor: And by the time "George" is king, I'll be light-years away.
        Zarek: No, Doctor. You'll be with the android at all times.
        The Doctor: Now look here, Zarek, I've got better things to do than meddle in the politics of your piffling little planet!
        [Farrah puts his sword to the Doctor's throat.]
        The Doctor: On the other hand, I could be with the android at all times.
