From "Doctor Who: Utopia (#3.11)" (2007)
Professor Yana: Even my title is an affectation. There hasn't been such a thing as a university for over a thousand years. I've spent my life going from one refugee ship to another.
The Doctor: If you'd been born in a different time, you'd be revered. I mean it. Throughout the galaxies.
Professor Yana: Oh, those damn galaxies. They had to go and collapse. Some admiration would have been nice. Just a little, just once.
The Doctor: Well, you have it now. That footprint engine thing, you can't activate it from onboard. It's got to be done from here. You're staying behind.
