      • (The group are almost run down by a carriage.)
        Nyssa: Is the man blind? He nearly killed us!
        Richard Mace: That's the Miller, a man of very sour disposition.
        Tegan: And not much road sense!

      • Tegan: You call yourself a Time Lord. A broken clock keeps better time than you do! At least it's right twice a day. Which is more than you ever are!

      • The Doctor: Yes, uh, a small error has been made.
        Tegan: You call 300 years a small error?

      • Tegan: Is that supposed to be Heathrow?
        Adric: It is.
        Tegan: Well, they've certainly let the grass grow since I was last there.
        Adric: Actually they haven't built the airport yet. We're about three hundred years early.
        Tegan [ upset ]: Terrific. Maybe I can go out, buy a claim on the land. When they get around to inventing aircraft I'll make a fortune!

      • Nyssa: I think we should go, Doctor.
        The Doctor: You're beginning to sound like Tegan.
        Nyssa: I'm beginning to understand how she feels.

      • Nyssa: So, what are you going to do if we find [the aliens]?
        The Doctor: Oh, twist their arms a bit. To let me take them back to their own planet.
        Nyssa: I hope they have arms to twist.
        The Doctor: I'll find something.

      • The Doctor: I've met kings, emperors, megalomaniacs in my time.

      • The Doctor: Why were those men following us?
        Mace: You don't know?
        The Doctor: Well, we're new to the area.
        Mace: You must be new to the world, sir. Have not you heard? There is plague.
        Tegan: Where?
        Mace: Everywhere.
