"Doctor Who: The Unicorn and the Wasp (#4.7)" (2008)
Donna Noble: Yeah but think about it. There's a murder, a mystery, and Agatha Christie.
The Doctor: So? Happens to me all the time.
Donna Noble: No, but isn't that a bit weird? Agatha Christie didn't walk around surrounded by murders, not really. I mean that's like meeting Charles Dickens, and he's surrounded by ghosts, at Christmas.
The Doctor: Well...
Donna Noble: Oh come on! It's not like we could drive across country and find Enid Blyton having tea with Noddy. Could we? Noddy's not real. Is he? Tell me there's no Noddy!
The Doctor: [leans in close to her] There's no Noddy.

Agatha Christie: [upon meeting one another] Agatha Christie.
Donna Noble: What about her?
Agatha Christie: That's me.

Greeves: You won't find anything in there.
Donna Noble: Oh! How come it's locked?
Greeves: Lady Eddison commands it to be so.
Donna Noble: And I command it to be otherwise. Scotland Yard. Pip Pip.

Donna Noble: There is a giant wasp!
The Doctor: What do you mean a giant wasp?
Donna Noble: I mean a wasp, that's giant!
Agatha Christie: It's only a silly little insect.
Donna Noble: When I say giant, I don't mean big, I mean flipping enormous! Look at its sting.

Donna Noble: Next thing you know, you're gonna be telling me it's like 'Murder on the Orient Express', and they all did it.
Agatha Christie: 'Murder on the Orient Express'?
Donna Noble: Oh, yeah. One of your best.
The Doctor: But not yet.
Agatha Christie: Marvelous idea, though.
Donna Noble: Yeah. Tell you what. Copyright: Donna Noble. Okay?
The Doctor: Anyway...

Roger Curbishley: Some of these young boys deserve a decent thrashing.
Davenport: Couldn't agree more, sir.
[Roger clears his throat]
Donna Noble: Typical. All the decent men are on the other bus.
The Doctor: Or Time Lords.

The Doctor: Lady Eddison!
Lady Clemency Eddison: Forgive me, but, who exactly might you be? And, what are you doing here?
The Doctor: I'm the Doctor. And this is Miss Donna Noble, of the, Chiswick Nobles.
Donna Noble: Good afternoon, my lady. Topping day, what. Spiffing. Top-hole.
The Doctor: No no no no no no no. Don't do that. Don't.
[holds up his psychic paper]
The Doctor: We were thrilled to receive your invitation! We met at the Ambassadors' reception.

The Doctor: [knocks on the TARDIS door] We'll be late for cocktails!
[TARDIS door opens, Donna steps out, wearing 1920s dress]
Donna Noble: What d'you think? Flapper? Or slapper?
The Doctor: [smiles] Flapper. You look lovely.

Donna Noble: Never mind Planet Zog. A party in the 1920s! That's more like it!
The Doctor: Trouble is, we haven't been invited. Oh, I forgot!
[pulls out the psychic paper]
The Doctor: Yes we have!

The Doctor: Ah! Smell that air! Grass and lemonade! And a little bit of mint. Just a hint of mint. Must be the 1920s.
Donna Noble: You can tell what year it is just by smelling?
The Doctor: Oh, yeah.
Donna Noble: Or, maybe, that big vintage car coming up the drive gave it away.

Donna Noble: [running away from the giant wasp] Great! Now it's chasing us!

Donna Noble: [to the Doctor] What is it? What else?
[the Doctor jolts his hands out, miming a shock]
Donna Noble: Um, it's a song! 'Mammy'? Um, I don't know! 'Camptown Races'?
The Doctor: 'Camptown Races'?
Donna Noble: Well! All right, then! 'Towering Inferno'!
The Doctor: It's a shock! Look, shock!
[he mimes again]
The Doctor: I need a shock!
Donna Noble: Right, then. Big shock. Coming up.
[Donna grabs the Doctor and plants a full-frontal kiss on him. The Doctor staggers away, lifts his face up to the ceiling and releases a cloud of poisons from his body]
The Doctor: [gasps] Detox. Oh! I must do that more often.
[looks at Donna apprehensively]
The Doctor: I mean, the, the detox.
Agatha Christie: Doctor. You are... impossible!
[the Doctor winks]
Agatha Christie: Who are you?

[the Doctor makes muffled noises while making a shaking motion]
Donna Noble: I can't understand you! How many words?
[the Doctor holds up one finger]
Donna Noble: One! One word! Shake, milk-shake, milk! Milk! No? Not milk! Um, shake, shake, shake! Cocktail shake! What, d'you want a Harvey Wallbanger?
The Doctor: Harvey Wallbanger?
Donna Noble: Well, I don't know!
The Doctor: How is Harvey Wallbanger one word?
Agatha Christie: What do you need Doctor?
The Doctor: Salt! I was miming salt! I need salt! I need something salty!
[Donna grabs a bag from the counter]
Donna Noble: What about this?
The Doctor: What is it?
Donna Noble: Salt!
The Doctor: That's too salty!
Donna Noble: Oh, that's too salty!
Agatha Christie: What about this?
[Agatha hands the Doctor a jar and he upends it, eating the food]
Donna Noble: What's that?
Agatha Christie: Anchovies.

[the Doctor grabs the ginger beer from the shelf, drinks some of it, and pours the rest over his head]
Agatha Christie: I'm an expert in poisons! Doctor! There's no cure! It's fatal!
[the Doctor spits out the ginger beer]
The Doctor: Not for me! I can stimulate the inhibited enzymes into reversal! Protein! I need protein!
[the Doctor breathes heavily while Donna runs to the counter]
Donna Noble: Walnuts!
The Doctor: Brilliant!
[the Doctor upends the walnut jar and chews furiously]

The Doctor: No. Something's inhibiting my enzymes.
[convulses]
The Doctor: Gah! I've been poisoned!
Donna Noble: What do we do? What do we do?
Agatha Christie: [smells the Doctor's drink] Bitter almonds. It's cyanide! Sparkling cyanide!

Donna Noble: Come on, Agatha! What would Miss Marple do? She'd have overheard something vital by now because the murderer thinks she'd just a harmless old lady.
Agatha Christie: Clever idea! Miss Marple... Who writes those?
Donna Noble: Um... Copyright Donna Noble, add it to the list.

Agatha Christie: The stories are true. I found my husband with another woman. A younger, prettier woman. Isn't it always the way?
Donna Noble: Well, mine was with a giant spider, but... same difference.
Agatha Christie: [laughs] You and the Doctor talk such wonderful nonsense!

Donna Noble: D'you know what I think? Those books of yours, one day they could turn them into films. They could be talking pictures.
Agatha Christie: Talking pictures? Pictures that... talk? What do you mean?
Donna Noble: Oh. Blimey, I've done it again.

Donna Noble: [running after the giant wasp] Hey, this makes a change! There's a monster, and we're chasing it!

Donna Noble: [mimicking the Doctor] 'The plucky young woman who helps me out'?
The Doctor: No policewomen in 1926.
Donna Noble: I'll pluck you in a minute!

Agatha Christie: You make a rather unusual couple.
The Doctor: [together] Oh, no no no no, we're not married.
Donna Noble: [together] Yeah, we're not a couple.
Agatha Christie: Well, obviously not. No wedding ring.
[Donna and the Doctor exchange admiring glances]
The Doctor: Oh, oh! You don't miss a trick.

The Doctor: [grabs a newspaper] The date on this newspaper.
Donna Noble: What about it?
The Doctor: It's the day that Agatha Christie disappeared.

The Doctor: She'd just discovered that her husband was having an affair.
Donna Noble: You'd never think to look at her, smiling away.
The Doctor: Well, she was British and moneyed. They carry on, except for this one time. Nobody know what happened. She just vanished.
[Flashes back with a series of newspaper headlines about Agatha Christie's disappearance. The scenes shown are overlayed by a narration from the Doctor]
The Doctor: Her car will be found tomorrow morning by the side of a lake. Ten days later, Agatha Chrstie turns up in a hotel in Harrogate. She said she lost her memory. She never spoke about her disappearance until the day she died. Or whatever it was...
Donna Noble: It's about to happen.
The Doctor: Right here, right now.
Miss Chandrakala: [rushes straight from the library] Professor! The library! Murder! MURDER!
[the Doctor and Donna rush into the library and look at the body]
The Doctor: Blunt instrument. Watch broke as fell, time of death was at a quarter past four.
Donna Noble: Lead pipe. Only Hercule Poirot, but I reckon that's blunt enough.


"Doctor Who: The Runaway Bride (#3.0)" (2006)
Donna: What did you do?
The Doctor: Guess what I've got Donna.
[Pulls out a large remote device from his overcoat]
The Doctor: Pockets.
Donna: How did they fit in there?
The Doctor: They're bigger on the inside.

Donna: Promise me one thing though, Doctor.
The Doctor: What's that?
Donna: That you'll find somebody.
The Doctor: I don't need anybody.
Donna: Yes you do. Because I think sometimes you need somebody to stop you.

[last lines]
Donna: Doctor.
The Doctor: [opening the TARDIS door] Oh, what is it now?
Donna: That friend of yours, what was her name?
The Doctor: [almost broken tone of voice] Her name was Rose.
[the Doctor closes the TARDIS door, the TARDIS starts to dematerialize, then it launches into the sky like a rocket]

[the Doctor is preparing to take a lift down to a secret alien base]
The Doctor: Right then, thanks, you two, I can handle this, see you later.
Donna: [enters lift] No chance, Martian. You're the man who keeps saving my life. I ain't letting you out of my sight.
The Doctor: Going down.
Donna: Lance!
Lance Bennett: Maybe I should go to the police.
Donna: Inside!
[Lance gives up and enters the lift]
The Doctor: To honour and obey?
Lance Bennett: Tell me about it, mate.
Donna: Oi!

Donna: But... we were getting married.
Lance Bennett: Well, love, I couldn't risk you running off. I had to say yes. And then I was stuck with a woman who thinks the height of excitement is a new flavour Pringle! Oh, I had to sit there and listen to all that yap yap yap. Oh, Brad and Angelina, is Posh pregnant, X factor, Atkins diet, feng shui, split ends, text me, text me, text me - dear god, the never-ending fountain of fat, stupid trivia! I deserve a medal.

Donna: [being told to jump from the taxi into the Tardis] I'm in my wedding dress!
The Doctor: Yes! You look lovely! Come on!

Donna: I can't do it!
The Doctor: Trust me.
Donna: Is that what you said to her? Your friend? The one you lost? Did she trust you?
The Doctor: Yes, she did. And she is not dead. She is *so* alive. Now jump!

[the Doctor uses a 4H pencil and a mug to explain how Donna was transported into the Tardis]
Donna: I'm a pencil inside a mug?
The Doctor: Yep! 4H, suits you, actually!

The Doctor: Haven't you got a mobile?
Donna: I'm in my wedding dress; it doesn't have pockets. Who has pockets? Have you ever seen a bride with pockets? When I went to my fitting at Chez Alison, the one thing I forgot to say was "Give me pockets"!

The Doctor: Question is, what did camouflaged robot mercenaries want with you? And how did you get inside the TARDIS? I don't know... what's your job?
Donna: I'm a secretary.
The Doctor: [scanning Donna with his sonic screwdriver] Weird. I mean, you're not special. You're not powerful. You're not connected. You're not clever. You're not important.
Donna: This friend of yours, just before she left, did she punch you in the face?
[slapping the sonic screwdriver out of the way]
Donna: Stop bleeping me!

[after Donna's appearance in the TARDIS]
Donna: Where am I? I demand that you tell me right now, where am I?
The Doctor: Inside the TARDIS.
Donna: The what?
The Doctor: The TARDIS!
Donna: The what?
The Doctor: THE TARDIS!
Donna: The what?
The Doctor: It's called the TARDIS!
Donna: That's not even a proper word! You're just saying things!

Donna: Who was it? Who's paying you? Was it Nerys? Oh my God, she's finally got me back! This has got Nerys written all over it!
The Doctor: Who the hell is Nerys?
Donna: Your best friend!
The Doctor: Hold on, what are you dressed like that for?
Donna: [sarcastically] I'm going tenpin bowling. WHY DO YOU THINK, DUMBO? I was halfway up the aisle! I've waited my whole life for this, it's seconds away, and then you, I don't know, drugged me or something!

Donna: Who are you?
The Doctor: I'm the Doctor. You?
Donna: Donna.
The Doctor: Human?
Donna: Yeah. Is that optional?
The Doctor: Well, it is for me.

The Doctor: [examining Donna at hyper-speed with various medical items] There is no way a human being can lock itself onto the TARDIS and transport itself inside! It must be some atomic connection, disruption? Something in the temporal field? Something pulling you into the chronon shell! Maybe something macro-binding your DNA with the interior matrix! Maybe a genetic...
Donna: [slaps him hard upside the face]
The Doctor: [picks himself up, completely shocked] What was that for?

The Doctor: [in a frenzied 'light-bulb' moment] Ahh! The wedding! That's right, you're getting married! That's it! Best day of your life, walking down the aisle... Oh, you're body's a battleground, there's a chemical war inside! Adrenaline, acetocholine, WHAM go the endorphins! You're *cooking*! Yeah! You're like a walking oven, a press cooker, a microwave, all churning away; the buttons reach boiling point and SHAZZAM...
Donna: [slaps him hard upside the face]
The Doctor: [disbelief] What did I do this time?

Donna: But I still don't understand, I'm full of particles, but what for?
The Doctor: There was a Racnoss web at the center of the Earth, but my people unraveled their power source. Because Huon particles ceased to exist and the Racnoss were stuck, so they just stayed in hibernation for BILLIONS of years, frozen, dead, caput! So you're the new key, brand new particles, living particles, and they need you to open it. And you have never *been* so quiet!
[turns]
Donna: [is gone]
The Doctor: [upset] OH!

Empress: [sees a cloaked android walking up the steps, Donna wears a look of horror] My children climb towards me, and none shall stop them! So you might as well unmask, my clever little Doctorman!
The Doctor: [pulls off the cloak] Oh well, nice try!
[pulls out sonic screwdriver and points it to the web]
The Doctor: I've got you Donna!
Donna: I'm gonna fall!
The Doctor: No you're not, you're gonna swing! I've got ya!
[she swings in a whole level under his stairs and falls; silence as pipes clatter to the ground]
The Doctor: Oh! Sorry...
Donna: [pan to Donna flat on the ground] *Thanks* for *nothing!*
Empress: The Doctorman amuses me!
The Doctor: Empress of the Racnoss, I give you one last chance. I can find you a planet, I can find you and your children a place in the universe to coexist. Take that offer and end this *now*.
Empress: [hisses] These men are so funny!
The Doctor: What's your answer?
Empress: [scoffs] I'm afraid I'll have to decline!
[cackles]
The Doctor: Then what happens next is your own doing.
Empress: I'll show you what happens next!
[hisses, then calls to her Roboforms]
Empress: At arms!
[They raise their weapons]
Empress: Take aim!
[They aim at the Doctor]
Empress: And...
The Doctor: Relax.
[They suddenly deactivate and power down]

Donna Noble: [notices Rose Tyler's clothing and picks it up] I knew it. Acting all innocent. I'm not the first, am I? How many women have you abducted?
The Doctor: [after a long pause] That's my friend's.
Donna Noble: Where is she? Hopped out for a spacewalk?
The Doctor: She's gone.
Donna Noble: Gone where?
The Doctor: I lost her.

The Doctor: Why aren't they stopping?
Donna: They think I'm in a fancy dress.
[a cab drives by and the driver says, 'Get off the sauce, darling!']
Donna: They think I'm drunk.
[a car drives by in the other way and both occupants yell, 'You're fooling no one, mate!']
Donna: They think I'm in drag!
The Doctor: Hold on, hold on.
[He whistles and successfully hails a cab]


"Doctor Who: The Fires of Pompeii (#4.2)" (2008)
Donna Noble: [she and the Doctor have returned to find the TARDIS missing] You're kidding. You're not telling me the TARDIS is gone?
The Doctor: Ok.
Donna Noble: Where is it?
The Doctor: You... told me not to tell you.
Donna Noble: Don't get clever in Latin.

Donna Noble: You fought her off with a water pistol. I bloody love you!

[the Doctor and Donna think they're in Rome]
Donna Noble: Have you been here before, then?
The Doctor: Mmh, ages ago. Before you ask, that fire had nothing to do with me. Well, a little bit.

Caecillius: Who are you?
The Doctor: I am... Spartacus.
Donna Noble: And so am I.
Caecillius: Mr. and Mrs. Spartacus?
The Doctor: Oh, no no no, we're not married.
Donna Noble: [overlapping the Doctor] We're not together.
Caecillius: Oh, brother and sister? Yes, of course, you look very much alike.
The Doctor, Donna Noble: [looking at each other; surprised and a bit disgruntled] Really?

Lucius: Is that so? Man from Gallifrey.
The Doctor: What?
Lucius: The strangest of images; your home is lost in fire, is it not?
Donna Noble: Doctor, what are they doing?
Lucius: And you, daughter of... London!
Donna Noble: How does he know that?
Lucius: It is the gift of Pompeii, every single oracle tells the truth.
Donna Noble: But that's impossible.
Lucius: Doctor, she is returning.
The Doctor: Who is? Who's she?
Lucius: And you, daughter of London, there is something on your back.
Donna Noble: What's that mean?
Evelina: Even the word Doctor is false. Your real name is hidden, it burns in the stars, in the cascade of Medusa herself. You are a Lord, sir. A Lord of Time.

Donna Noble: Hold on a minute.
[points at a sign]
Donna Noble: That sign over there is in English. Are you having me on? Are we in Epcot?
The Doctor: No, no, no, no. It's the TARDIS translation circuits, makes it look like English. Speech as well. You're talking Latin right now.
Donna Noble: Seriously?
The Doctor: Uh-huh.
Donna Noble: I just said seriously in Latin?
The Doctor: Oh yeah.
[she laughs]

Donna Noble: What time does Vesuvius erupt? When's it due?
The Doctor: It's 79 A.D. 23rd of August; which makes Volcano day-tomorrow.
Donna Noble: Plenty of time. We can get everyone out, easy.
The Doctor: Yeah, except we're not going to.
Donna Noble: But that's what you do. You're the Doctor. You save people.
The Doctor: Not this time. Pompeii is a fixed point in history. What happens, happens. There's no stopping it.
Donna Noble: Says who?
The Doctor: Says me.
Donna Noble: What, and you're in charge?
The Doctor: TARDIS, Time Lord-yeah!
Donna Noble: Donna, Human-no! I don't need your permission. I'll tell them myself.
The Doctor: If you stand in the market place, announce the end of the world they're just gonna think you're a mad ol' Soothsayer. Now come on; TARDIS, we're getting out of here.
[takes off down the road]
Donna Noble: Well, I just might have
[shouts after him]
Donna Noble: something to say about that, Spaceman!
The Doctor: [shouts back] Oh, I bet you will!

Lucius: The prophecies of women are limited and dull. Only the men folk have the capacity for true perception.
Donna Noble: [partly to herself] I'll tell you where the wind's blowing right now, mate.

[as Donna lays tied to a sacrificial alter]
Spurrina: The false prophet will surrender both her blood... and her breath.
Donna Noble: I'll surrender you in a minute. Don't you dare!
Spurrina: You will be silent!
Donna Noble: Listen, Sister. You may have eyes on the back of your hands; but you'll have eyes on the back of your head by the time I'm finished with you! Let me GO!
Spurrina: This prattling voice will cease, forever!
[raises her knife to finish it]
The Doctor: [sardonically] Oh, that'll be the day.

Donna Noble: Where are we going now?
The Doctor: Into the volcano.
Donna Noble: No way!
The Doctor: Yes, way.
[spins water pistol around finger]
The Doctor: Have it your way.

Donna Noble: [after the Doctor goes back to save Caecillius & his family] Thank You.
The Doctor: Yeah.
[pause, he works with dials on the TARDIS; finally looks at her]
The Doctor: You were right. Sometimes I need someone.
[beat]
The Doctor: Welcome aboard.
Donna Noble: Yeah.
[both smile at each other]

Donna Noble: What if I said something in actual Latin? Like, "Veni, vidi, vici"? My dad said that when he came back from football. If I said, "Veni, vidi, vici," to that lot, what would it sound like?
The Doctor: I'm not sure. You have to think up difficult questions, don't you?
Donna Noble: [excited] I'm gonna try it!
Stallholder: A'ernoon, sweetheart. What can I get ya, my love?
Donna Noble: Um, "Veni, vidi, vici."
Stallholder: Huh? Sorry?
Stallholder: [slowly and loudly] Me no a-speak Celtic. No can do, missy.
Donna Noble: [sarcastically] Yeah!
Donna Noble: [to The Doctor] How's he mean, Celtic?
The Doctor: Welsh. You sound Welsh. There we are. Learnt something.

Donna: I'm here.In Rome.Donna Noble in Rome.This is just weird!I mean, everyone here's dead.

Spurrina: No man is allowed to enter the Temple of Sybil!
[Sybil was a soothsayer]
The Doctor: Oh that's all right.
[mocking]
The Doctor: Just us girls. You know, I met Sybil once. Hell of a woman! Blimey, she could dance a tarantella! Nice teeth... Truth be told, I think she had a bit of a thing for me. I said it would never last, she said "I know." Well, she would.
[to Donna, who is tied to an altar]
The Doctor: You all right there?
Donna Noble: [sarcastic] Oh, never better.
The Doctor: I like the toga.
Donna Noble: Thank you. And the ropes?
The Doctor: Eh, not so much.
[cuts her free]

Donna Noble: But I'm history, too. You saved me in 2008, saved all of us. Why is that different?
The Doctor: Some things are fixed, some things are in flux. Pompeii is fixed.
Donna Noble: How do you know which is which?
The Doctor: Because that's how I see the universe. Every waking second, I can see what is, what was, what could be, what must not... That's the burden of the Timelord, Donna. And I'm the only one left.

Lucius: There is nowhere to run, Doctor, and Daughter of London!
The Doctor: Now then, Lucius, my Lord Pyrovillian, don't get yourselves in a lava.
The Doctor: [to Donna, on "lather" pun] "In a lava"? No?
Donna Noble: [Donna gives a disdainful look] No.
The Doctor: No. But if I might beg the wisdom of the gods, *before* we perish: once this new race of creatures is complete, then what?
Lucius: My masters will follow the example of Rome itself! An almighty empire, bestriding the whole of civilization!
Donna Noble: But if you've crashed, and you've got all this technology, why don't you just go home!
Lucius: The heaven of Pyrovillia is gone.
The Doctor: What do you mean, "gone"? Where's it gone?
Lucius: It was *taken*! Pyrovillia is lost. But there is heat enough in this world for a new species to rise.
The Doctor: Yeah, I should warn you, it's 70% water out there.
Lucius: [contemptuous] Water can boil! And everything will burn, Doctor!
The Doctor: Then... the whole planet *is* at stake. Thank you. That's all I needed to know. Donna?

Donna Noble: [outraged] You can't just *leave* them!
The Doctor: [bitter] Don't you think I've done enough? History's back in place and everyone *dies*.
Donna Noble: You've got to go back! Doctor, I am telling you, take this thing *back*!
[the Doctor pulls a control and the TARDIS shudders]
Donna Noble: [softly] It's not fair.
The Doctor: [softly] No, it's not.
Donna Noble: [crying] But your own planet, it burned.
The Doctor: That's just it. Don't you see, Donna? Can't you understand? If I could go back and save them, then I would, but I can't!
The Doctor: [pauses] I can *never* go back. I can't. I just can't. I can't.
Donna Noble: Just someone. Please.
Donna Noble: [sobbing] Not the whole town. Just save someone.


"Doctor Who: Partners in Crime (#4.1)" (2008)
Wilfred Mott: [looking at the night sky] ... one day; 100 years time we'll be striding out amongst the stars. Dueling about with all them aliens. Just you wait.
Donna Noble: [smiling] You really believe in all that stuff, don't you?
Wilfred Mott: [chuckles] All over the place these days. If I wait here long enough...
Donna Noble: I don't suppose you've seen a little blue box?
Wilfred Mott: Is that slang for something?
Donna Noble: [laughs] No. I mean it. If you ever see a little blue box fly up there in the sky, you shout for me Gramps. Oh you just shout.

Donna Noble: I'm waving at fat.

The Doctor: The last time, with Martha, it got complicated. And that was all my fault. I just want a mate.
Donna Noble: You just want to mate?
The Doctor: I just want *a* mate!
Donna Noble: You're not matin' with me Sunshine!
The Doctor: A mate! I want *a* mate!
Donna Noble: Well, just as well, because I'm not having any of that nonsense! I mean, you're just a long streak of nothing, y'know, alien nothing!

Donna Noble: [after the Doctor pulls her in] I was right, it's always like for you!
The Doctor: Oh yes! And off we go!
[both smiling, run out of the room]
Penny Carter: [struggling in the chair] Oi!
The Doctor: [poking his head in the doorway] Sorry.
[uses his screwdriver to break her ropes; disappears from sight as she tries to get them off]
The Doctor: [pokes his head in again] Oh, and do yourself a favor; get out.

Sylvia Noble: [Donna just walked in; from the other room] And what time's this?
Donna Noble: [rolls her eyes] How old am I?
Sylvia Noble: [pokes her head around the corner] Not old enough to use a phone.

Sylvia Noble: It's my turn for the car. What d'you need it for?
Donna Noble: A quick getaway.

[meeting on the stairs; both hug each other]
Donna Noble: [high-pitched voice] Oh my God! I don't believe it!
[looks him over]
Donna Noble: Oh, you got the same suit!
[as her voice returns to normal]
Donna Noble: Don't you ever change?
The Doctor: Yeah, thanks Donna; not right now.
[look beneath them to see Miss foster & her gunmen running up the stairway]
The Doctor: [to Donna] Just like old times.
[both take off up the stairs]

Donna Noble: [watching the Adipose getting beamed on to the nursery ship] What are you going to do then? Blow them up?
The Doctor: They're just children; they can't help where they came from.
Donna Noble: Oh, well that makes a change from last time. That Martha must've done you good.
The Doctor: She did, yeah. She did...
[sniffs]
The Doctor: She fancied me.
Donna Noble: Mad Martha, that one. Blind Martha. Charity Martha.

[mouthing words silently and exaggeratedly]
The Doctor: Donna?
Donna Noble: Doc-tor!
The Doctor: Wh - what - w - what?
Donna Noble: Oh! My! *God*!
The Doctor: How?
Donna Noble: [pointing at her face with both hands] It's me!
The Doctor: [nodding, gesturing to eyes, then Donna] Yeah, I can see that.
Donna Noble: [pointing to where she's standing, then two thumbs up] Oh, this... is... *brilliant*!
The Doctor: [pointing thrice at Donna] W - wha - what the hell are *you* *doing* *there*?
Donna Noble: [pointing to eyes, then at The Doctor] I... was looking... for... you!
The Doctor: [points at self questioningly] What for?
Donna Noble: [miming reading the paper] Read it...
Donna Noble: [typing fingers in the air] ... on the Internet...
Donna Noble: [wiggling fingers around mouth] ... so weird...
Donna Noble: [walking fingers] ... crept along...
Donna Noble: [thumb into room, hand-as-mouth] ... heard them talking...
Donna Noble: [ducks down, comes back up, points] ... looked, ah! *You*!
The Doctor: [imperceptibly nods]
Donna Noble: [thumbs back at Miss Foster, looks, freezes] Th...
[Miss Foster has stopped talking and is staring at Donna. Miss Foster turns and looks right at The Doctor. The Doctor turns to see Miss Foster]
Miss Foster: [aloud] Are we interrupting you?

The Doctor: So far they're just losing weight, but the Matron's gone up to emergency parthenogenesis.
Donna Noble: And that's when they convert...
The Doctor: Skeletons, organs, everything. A million people are gonna die!

Donna Noble: [Donna aproaches a stranger] Listen, there's a woman going to come along. Tall blonde woman called Sylvia. Tell her, that bin there. It'll all make sense.
[She heads back to the TARDIS, toward the past, future and everything in between. The stranger she was talking to turns back towards the camera - she is ROSE TYLER. Looking worn, depressed. She turns back around, walks away, and then simply vanishes into thin air... ]

Donna Noble: [knocks at Stacey Campbell's door] Stacey Campbell? My name's Donna.
[She holds up her ID card to prove it]
Donna Noble: I represent ADIPOSE Industries, and you're on the list of our valued customers.
The Doctor: [knocks at Roger Davey's door] Mr. Roger Davey, I'm calling on behalf of ADIPOSE Industries.
[holds up his psychic paper]
The Doctor: I just need to ask you a few questions.

Donna Noble: [enters ADIPOSE Industries through the front doors] Donna Noble, Health and Safety.
The Doctor: [enters the building by using his sonic screwdriver to disable the alarms on the emergency exit] John Smith, Health and Safety.

[after spending all day hiding in a toilet stall, Donna emerges, but then gets a call from her mother, and hides back in the stall]
Donna Noble: Not now!
Sylvia Noble: I need the car. Where are you?
Donna Noble: [improvising, and whispering] The car went missing!
Sylvia Noble: Why are you whispering?
Donna Noble: I'm in church.
Sylvia Noble: What would you do in church?
Donna Noble: I'm praying.
Sylvia Noble: [scoffs] A bit late for that, I imagine.
Wilfred Mott: What's she in church for?
Sylvia Noble: Hush, you! Go up the hill.
[to Donna]
Sylvia Noble: Well, I need the car. I'm going out with Suzette Chambers. She's asked all the Wednesday girls. Apparently she's been on those ADIPOSE pills. She says she looks marvelous.
[Donna hangs up because Miss Foster and her bodyguards have burst into the bathroom and are looking for her]
Miss Foster: We know you're in here. So let's make this nice and easy and show yourself.
[Donna puts her feet up to hide herself]
Miss Foster: I'm waiting. I warn you, I'm not a patient woman, so out you come!
[nothing]
Miss Foster: Right, we'll do it the hard way.
[to her bodyguards]
Miss Foster: Get her!
1st Foster Guard: [kicks open each stall's door. He does this four times. On the fifth door, he bursts down the door to reveal Penny Carter]
Miss Foster: [lowers her glasses] There you are.
[takes Penny into custody]
Penny Carter: I've been through the records, Foster, and all of your results have been faked! There's something about those pills that you're not telling us!
Miss Foster: Oh, I think I'll be conducting this interview, Penny.
[Donna looks on as Miss Foster and her bodyguards take Penny away]

Miss Foster: Well, at last.
Donna Noble: Hello.
The Doctor: Nice to meet you! I'm the Doctor.
Donna Noble: And I'm Donna.
Miss Foster: Partners in crime. And evidently of other world origin, judging by your sonic technology.
The Doctor: [feels through his pockets and finds Miss Foster's sonic pen] Oh, yes! I've still got your sonic pen! Nice! I like it, sleek. It's definitely sleek.
Donna Noble: Oh, it's definitely sleek.
The Doctor: Yes, and if you were to sign your real name. That would be...
Miss Foster: Matron Cofelia, of the Five-Straighten, Classabindi Nursery Fleet, Intergalactic Class.
The Doctor: And that is using humans as surrogates.
Miss Foster: I've been employed by the Adiposian First Family to foster a new generation after their breeding planet was lost.
The Doctor: What do you mean, "lost"? How do you lose a planet?
Miss Foster: Oh politics are none of my concern. I'm just here to take care of the children on behalf of the parents.
Donna Noble: Like an outer space supernanny?
Miss Foster: Yes, if you like!
Donna Noble: So, so those little things, they're made out of fat. But that woman, Stacey Campbell, there was nothing left of her.
Miss Foster: Well, in a crisis, the Adipose can convert bone and hair and internal organs. Makes them a little bit sick, the poor things.
Donna Noble: What about poor Stacey?
The Doctor: Seeding a Level 5 planet is against galactic laws.
Miss Foster: [turns to the Doctor] Are you threatening me?
The Doctor: I'm trying to help you, Matron. This is your one chance, because if you don't call this off, then I'll have to stop you.
Miss Foster: Then how do you think you can stop all of this?
[her bodyguards point their machine guns at the Doctor and Donna]
The Doctor: Hold on! Hold on! One more thing, before dying! Do you know what happens when you hold two identical sonic devices against each other?
[He takes out his own sonic screwdriver]
Miss Foster: No.
The Doctor: Nor me! Let's find out!
[he jams the two sonic screwdrivers together and activates both, emitting a loud, deafening pulsing sound that also shakes the room such so that it shatters a window]


"Doctor Who: Planet of the Ood (#4.3)" (2008)
Donna Noble: Rocket. Blimey, a real proper rocket. Now that's what I call a spaceship.
[to the Doctor]
Donna Noble: You've got a box, he's got a Ferrari.

Donna Noble: [on Ood delta 50] He sang as he was dying.
The Doctor: His eyes turned red.
Donna Noble: What's that mean?
The Doctor: Trouble.

Solana Mercurio: [addressing the Doctor and Donna] Doctor Noble, Mrs. Noble, if you'd like to come with me.
The Doctor: [rapid fire with Donna's lines] Oh, no. No, no, no. We're not married.
Donna Noble: *So* not married.
The Doctor: Never.
Donna Noble: Never, ever!
Solana Mercurio: [politely] Of course.

[looking at a map of the 2nd Great and Bountiful Human Empire and it's Galaxies]
Donna Noble: But look at us. We're everywhere. Is that good or bad though? Are we like explorers, or more like a virus?
The Doctor: Sometimes I wonder.

The Doctor: [standing in a container full of Ood] Ood, tell me. Does 'the Circle' mean anything to you?
The Ood: [all the translators light up at once] The Circle must be broken.
Donna Noble: [breathy] Whoa, that is creepy.
The Doctor: But what is it? What is the Circle?
The Ood: The Circle must be broken!
The Doctor: Why?
The Ood: So that we can sing!

Donna Noble: [seeing an Ood's eyes turn red] Oh no you don't!

Donna Noble: [on Mr. Halpern] They... turned him into an Ood.
The Doctor: Yup.
Donna Noble: He's an Ood.
The Doctor: I noticed.

Donna Noble: [taps Ood to get its attention] Excuse me, are you all like this?
Alien Voices: [as Ood] I do not understand, miss.
Donna Noble: [agitated] Why do you say "miss?" Do I look single?
The Doctor: Back to the point...
Donna Noble: Right... sorry...

Donna Noble: [the Doctor and Donna have been handcuffed and left to die] Well, do something! You're the one with all the tricks... and you must've met Houdini!
The Doctor: [straining] Ugh... These are really good handcuffs...
Donna Noble: [sarcastically] Well, I'm glad of that. At least we've got quality!

Donna Noble: It's weird... but... being with you, I can't tell what's right and what's wrong anymore.
The Doctor: It's better that way. People who know for certain tend to be like Mr. Halpen.

Donna Noble: A great big empire, built on slavery...
The Doctor: It's not so different from your time.
Donna Noble: Oy! I haven't got slaves!
The Doctor: Who d'you think made your clothes?
Donna Noble: Is that why you travel round with a human at your side? It's not so you can show them the wonders of the universe, it's so you can take cheap shots?
The Doctor: Sorry.
Donna Noble: Well, don't.


"Doctor Who: The Doctor's Daughter (#4.6)" (2008)
Lieutenent Cobb: Cline, at Arms!
Donna Noble: [Cline cocks and aims his gun at Donna and the Doctor] Oi, Oi! Alright, cool the beans, Rambo!
Lieutenent Cobb: Take them. I won't have them spreading treason. And if you try anything, Doctor, I'll see that your woman dies first.
Donna Noble: [the Doctor and Donna at the same time] I'm not his woman.
The Doctor: Oh, no no no. No, we're not a couple!

Donna Noble: [referring to a soldier] Let me distract this one. I've picked up a few womanly wiles over the years.
The Doctor: Let's... save your wiles for later.
[big pause]
The Doctor: In case of emergency.

[after Jenny blew up the tunnel]
The Doctor: Why did you do that?
Jenny: They were trying to kill us.
The Doctor: But they've got my friend!
Jenny: Colateral damage. At least you've still got her.
[looks at Cline]
Jenny: He lost both his men. I'd say you came out ahead.
Donna Noble: Her name's Martha! And she's not collateral damage. Not for anyone. Have you got that, GI Jane?!

Donna Noble: So the Source could be a weapon and we've just given directions to Captain Nut-Job?
The Doctor: Oh, yes.
Donna Noble: [sighs] Not good, is it?

Donna Noble: Not what you'd call a natural parent are you?
The Doctor: They stole a tissue sample at gunpoint and processed it. It's not what I'd call natural parenting.

The Doctor: Can't extrapolate a relationship from a biological accident.
Donna Noble: Child Support agency can.

Jenny: So, you don't have a name either? Are you an anomaly too?
The Doctor: No.
Donna Noble: Oh come off it, you're the most anomalous bloke I've ever met.

Jenny: And Time Lords, what are they for?
The Doctor: For? They're not for anything.
Jenny: So what do you do?
The Doctor: I travel. Through time and space.
Donna Noble: He saves worlds, rescues civilizations, defeats terrible creatures and runs a lot. Seriously, there's an outrageous amount of running involved.
The Doctor: [opens hidden door] Got it!
[shouts echo]
The Doctor: Now, what were you saying about running?

Donna Noble: I'll tell you something, Doctor. Something I've never told you before. I think you're wrong.


"Doctor Who: Turn Left (#4.11)" (2008)
[last lines]
The Doctor: Sometimes I think there's way too much coincidence around you, Donna. I met you once, then I met your grandfather, then I met you again. In the whole wide universe, I met you for a second time. Like something's binding us together.
Donna Noble: Don't be so daft. I'm nothing special.
The Doctor: Yes you are, you're brilliant!
Rose Tyler: [Donna has a sudden flashblack] I thought you're brilliant.
Donna Noble: She said that.
The Doctor: Who did?
Donna Noble: That woman... I can't remember.
The Doctor: She never existed now.
Donna Noble: No, but she said the stars... she said the stars are going out.
The Doctor: Yeah, but that world's gone.
Donna Noble: No, but she said it was all worlds, every world. She said, "The darkness is coming, even here."
The Doctor: Who was she?
Donna Noble: I don't know.
The Doctor: What did she look like?
Donna Noble: She was... blonde.
The Doctor: [passionately] What was her name?
Donna Noble: I don't know.
The Doctor: Donna, what was her name?
Donna Noble: But she told me... to warn you. She said...
Donna Noble, Rose Tyler: [Rose silent in flashback, Donna aloud] "Two words:..."
The Doctor: What two words? What were they? What did she say?
[In flashback, Rose leans in and whispers into dying Donna's ear]
Donna Noble: "Bad wolf."
[the Doctor is shocked]
Donna Noble: What does it mean?
[the Doctor runs out of the fortune teller's tent, Donna quickly following, both stopping short. Everywhere there was writing in any language, the English words "Bad Wolf" now appear. "Bad Wolf" on all of the posted bills. "BAD WOLF" verticallly on all the hanging banners. They run to the TARDIS and on its phone panel, "Bad Wolf" repeated over and over in place of the instructions. Even on its marquee, where it normally says "Police Box" and "Public Call", both are replaced with "Bad Wolf". They enter and, inside, everything is lit in red. Even the time rotor is glowing an uncharacteristic red. From the inside, the marquee is still altered in mirrored image. The cloister bell is tolling]
Donna Noble: What is it? What's "Bad Wolf"?
The Doctor: It's the end of the universe!

Donna Noble: [as Rocco is taken to one of Britain's new 'Labour camps'] It'll be quiet with him gone. Still, we'll have more room...
Wilfred Mott: [in tears and horrified] Labour camps... that's what they called them last time.
Donna Noble: What'd you mean?
Wilfred Mott: It's happening again.
Donna Noble: What is?

Fortune Teller: I see... a man... the most remarkable man. How did you meet him?
Donna Noble: You're supposed to tell me.
Fortune Teller: I see the future, tell me the past. When did your lives cross?
Donna Noble: It's sort of complicated. I ended up on a spaceship on my wedding day. Long story.

Woman in Door-Way: Used to be a nice little family living at Number 29. They missed one mortgage payment, just one, they got booted out. For you lot!
Donna Noble: Don't get all chippy with me, Vera Duckworth. Pop your clogs on and go feed whippets!

Jival Chowdry: I'm losing a fortune!
Donna Noble: Well, sack one of this lot. Sack Cliff. He just sits there. Don't know what he does all day. Sorry, Cliff. Actually, I'm not sorry. What *do* you do all day?

Donna Noble: [after glancing at a letter informing her she has been sacked] Who typed this? I'm your P.A. Did you get someone else to type this? Beatrice!

Donna Noble: Hole punch, having that, stapler, mine, toy cactus, you can have that Beatrice, catch. Cliff, I'd leave you my mouse mat, but I'm worried you'd cut yourself.
Jival Chowdry: Alright Donna, have some respect. There's 2000 people in that hospital, and it's vanished.
Donna Noble: Oh, I'll show you vanishing, thanks for nothing! Oh, and you know when that money went missing from the kitty? Anne-Marie, that's all I'm saying. Anne-Marie!
[a loud rumble shakes the room]
Donna Noble: Oh, don't tell me, the hospital's back. Well, isn't that wizard!
[She slams a drawer shut with her leg]

Fortune Teller: [notices Donna] Tell me your fortune lady. The future's predicted and your life's foretold.
Donna Noble: [kindly] Oh, no thanks.
Fortune Teller: [surprised] Don't you want to know? If you're going to be happy.
Donna Noble: [confidently] I'm happy right now, thanks.
Fortune Teller: You've got red hair. The reading's free for red hair.
Donna Noble: [smiles] All right then.
[Donna enters, followed by the Fortune Teller herself]

[in the original timeline]
Sylvia Noble: Well let me tell you, sweetie. City executives don't need temps, except for practice.
Donna Noble: Yeah, well they haven't met me.
[She proceeds to turn left. In the alternate timeline, however, she says]
Donna Noble: Yeah, I suppose you're right.
[She turns to the right instead]
Donna Noble: .


"Doctor Who: Silence in the Library (#4.8)" (2008)
The Doctor: You know what? This is the biggest library in the universe. So where is everyone?
[looks around]
The Doctor: It's silent...
Donna Noble: The library?
The Doctor: The planet. The whole planet.
Donna Noble: Maybe it's a Sunday?
The Doctor: No, I never land on Sundays. Sundays are boring.

[the Doctor shows Donna the message]
The Doctor: Maybe it's a cry for help?
Donna Noble: [takes the message and looks at it] A cry for help?
[turns the message round]
Donna Noble: With a kiss?

Miss Evangelista: No, they're right, though. I'm a moron, me. My dad said I had the IQ of plankton, and, I was pleased.
Donna Noble: [laughs] See, that's funny!
Miss Evangelista: No. No, I really was pleased. Is that funny?
Donna Noble: No, no.

Professor River Song: Pretty boy! With me, I said!
[Donna looks at the Doctor suggestively]
The Doctor: [pause] Oh, I'm pretty boy!
Donna Noble: Yes! Oh, that came out a bit quick.
The Doctor: Pretty?
[Donna and the Doctor shrug]

The Doctor: Nice door skills, Donna.
Donna Noble: Yeah, well, you know. Boyfriends. Sometimes you need the element of surprise.

The Doctor: This must be the biographies. I love biographies.
Donna Noble: Yeah, very you. Always a death at the end.
The Doctor: You need a good death. Without death there'd only be comedies. Death gives us size.

Donna Noble: Couldn't she help?
Other Dave: Trust me, I just four days with her on the ship, she's, uh...
Anita: Couldn't tell the difference between the escape pod and the bathroom. We had to go back for her... twice.

Donna Noble: So, we weren't just in the neighborhood.
The Doctor: Yeah, I kind of, sort of... lied a bit. I got a message on the psychic paper.
[the Doctor shows Donna the psychic paper]
Psychic paper: [appearing as hand-printed text] The Library. Come as Soon as you can. X
The Doctor: What do you think: cry for help?
Donna Noble: [taking the paper] Cry for help, with a kiss?
The Doctor: Oh, we've all done that.
Donna Noble: Who's it from?
The Doctor: No idea.
Donna Noble: [a "buzz-tink" sounds down the hall as she speaks] So why did we come here? Why did you-?
The Doctor: Donna?
["Buzz-tink." Down the hall, "buzz-tink," a bank of lights go out. "Buzz-tink," and another]
Donna Noble: What's happening?
The Doctor: *Run*!
[They run down the hall as more lights "buzz-tink" off. They arrive at a set of doors and try to get them open]
Donna Noble: What? Is it locked?
The Doctor: Jammed! The wood's warped!
Donna Noble: Sonic it! Use the thingy!
The Doctor: I can't, it's wood!
Donna Noble: Oh! What, it doesn't do wood?
The Doctor: Hang on, hang on, if I can vibrate the molecules, fry the bindings, I can shatterline the interface...
Donna Noble: Oh, get out of the way!
[With a mighty kick from Donna, she and the Doctor barge in. They quickly close the door and the Doctor bars it with a book through the handles. Leaning against the door and relaxing briefly, they notice they're not alone]
The Doctor: Oh! Hello! Sorry to burst in on you like this. Okay if we stop here for a bit?
The Girl: [gasps and her eyes fly open in her living room; in The Library an ornately carved floating wooden sphere where she was standing shuts its lens cover and drops to the floor]

Professor River Song: [smiling at the Doctor through her space helmet] Hello, sweetie.
The Doctor: Get out!
Donna Noble: Doctor...
The Doctor: All of you, turn around, get back in you rocket and fly away. Tell your grandchildren you came to the Library and lived. They won't believe you.
Professor River Song: Pop your helmets, everyone, we got breathers.


"Doctor Who: The Stolen Earth (#4.12)" (2008)
[last lines; the Doctor is struggling to get up]
Captain Jack Harkness: [taking Rose away] Here we go. Good luck, Doctor.
Donna Noble: Will somebody tell me what's going on?
Rose Tyler: When he's dying... his body... it repairs itself. It changes... but you can't?
The Doctor: I'm sorry, it's too late. I'm regenerating.
[the Doctor begins to regenerate]

The Doctor: That's gorgeous!
Donna Noble: Oy! Don't get all space man - what does it mean?

Donna Noble: [looking lustfully at Jack through the TARDIS screen] ... and who is... that?
The Doctor: Captain Jack.
[to Donna]
The Doctor: Don't... just... don't.

Donna Noble: You're saying bees are aliens?
The Doctor: Don't be so daft - not all of them.

Donna Noble: [looking at the Doctor's allies on screen] It's like an outer-space Facebook!

The Doctor: Donna, come on, think: Earth, there must have been some sort of warning. Was there anything happening back in your day, like... electrical storms, freak weather, patterns in the... sky?
Donna Noble: Well, how should I know? Um, no. I don't- I don't think so. No.
The Doctor: [disappointed] Oh, OK, nevermind.
Donna Noble: Although, there were the bees disappearing.
The Doctor: [dismissive] The bees disappearing.
The Doctor: [sarcastic] The *bees* disappearing.
The Doctor: [revelational] The bees disappearing!

Albino Servant: I'm so sorry for your loss.
Donna Noble: Yeah. My whole planet's gone.
Albino Servant: I mean the loss that's yet to come.


"Doctor Who: The Poison Sky (#4.5)" (2008)
Donna Noble: [talking to the Doctor on a cell phone] What's happened? Where are you?
The Doctor: Still on Earth; but don't worry. I've got my secret weapon.
Donna Noble: And what's that?
The Doctor: You.
Donna Noble: [rolling her eyes] Somehow that's not making me happy.

Donna Noble: [on the Sontaran ship; talking softly] There's a door.
The Doctor: [talking just as soft] There should be a switch on the side.
Donna Noble: Yeah, there is. But it's a Sontaran switch; you need three fingers.
The Doctor: You've got three fingers.
Donna Noble: Oh, yeah.
[shapes her hand to form 3 fingers; places it in the switch; the door opens]
Donna Noble: I'm through.
The Doctor: Oh,
[talking right into the mouth piece]
The Doctor: you're brilliant you are.
Donna Noble: [sighs] Shut up.

[just been rescued; voice high-pitched with relief & gratitude]
Donna Noble: Have I ever told you how much I hate you!
[hugging him tightly]

Donna Noble: [Martha's wearing the doctor's coat] You know that coat, sort of works.
Martha Jones: I feel like a kid in my Dad's clothes.
Donna Noble: Oh, well if you're calling him dad you're definitely getting over him.

Wilfred Mott: I won't tell her. Best not... just keep it as our little secret, eh?
Donna Noble: [brief smile] Yeah.
Wilfred Mott: And you go with him, that wonderful Doctor. You go and see the stars...
[emotion in his voice]
Wilfred Mott: Then, bring a bit of them back for your old Gramps.
[tears in her eyes, nods and gets up to leave; stops to hug him, kisses him on the head]
Donna Noble: Love you.
[walks away; trying not to cry]


"Doctor Who: Forest of the Dead (#4.9)" (2008)
Donna Noble: How about you, are you alright?
The Doctor: Oh, I'm always all right.
Donna Noble: Is "All right" special time-lord code for... not really all right at all?
The Doctor: Why?
Donna Noble: Because I'm alright too.

Donna Noble: I made up the perfect man. Gorgeous, adores me, and hardly able to speak a word. What does that say about me?
The Doctor: [a little too quickly] Everything.
[Donna gives the Doctor a look]
The Doctor: Sorry, did I say "everything"? I meant to say "nothing". I was aiming for "nothing", accidentally said "everything".

[repeated line]
River Song, The Doctor, Donna Noble: [each at different times to another] Spoilers.

Donna Noble: So, this isn't the real me... This isn't my real body... But I've been dieting!

Dr Moon: Shall we go down to the river?
Donna Noble: You said "river" and suddenly we're feeding ducks.


"Doctor Who: The Sontaran Stratagem (#4.4)" (2008)
Donna Noble: Doctor.
The Doctor: Oh, just in time!
[grabs her hand; starts running toward the jeep, sounding excited]
The Doctor: Come on. Come on, we're going to the country. Fresh air and geniuses! What more could ask for?
Donna Noble: I'm not coming with you. I've been thinking... Sorry, I'm going home.
The Doctor: Really?
Donna Noble: I've got to.
The Doctor: [looking really disappointed] Well, if that's what you want. It's a bit soon. I had so many places I wanted to take you. The fifteenth broken moon of the Medusa Cascade, the lightning skies of Cotter Palluni's World, the diamond coral reefs of Kataa Flo Ko. Thank you. Thank you, Donna Noble, it's been brilliant. You've saved my life in so many ways. You're... you're just popping home for a visit, that's what you mean?
Donna Noble: [nods] You dumbo.
The Doctor: [looks and sounds embarrassed] And then you're coming back?
Donna Noble: Do you know what you are?
[sing-song voice]
Donna Noble: A great big outer space dunce.
The Doctor: Yeah.

The Doctor: Martha, Donna. Donna, Martha. Please Don't fight. I can't bear fighting.
Donna Noble: You wish.
[shaking Martha's hand]
Donna Noble: I've heard all about you. He talks about you all the time.
Martha Jones: I dread to think.
Donna Noble: No, no, no. No he says nice things. Good things. Nice things; really good things.
Martha Jones: [embarrassed] Oh, my God
[quickly brushing her bangs aside]
Martha Jones: he's told you everything.
Donna Noble: [noticing the ring on the hand she just used] Didn't take long to get over it, though. Who's the lucky man?
The Doctor: What man? Lucky what?
Donna Noble: She's engaged you prawn.
The Doctor: [as Martha shows the Doctor her ring] Really, who to?
Martha Jones: Tom. That Tom Milligan. He's in paediatrics. Working out in Africa right now. And yes, I know; I've got a doctor who disappears off to distant places. Tell me about it.
Donna Noble: Is he skinny?
Martha Jones: No, he's sort of... strong.
Donna Noble: [pointing to the Doctor] *He* is too skinny for words. You give him a hug you get a paper cut!
The Doctor: [as Martha laughs] Oh, I rather you were fighting.

Colonel Mace: [talking about U.N.I.T. & all their operations] A modern UNIT for the modern world.
Donna Noble: What and that mean's arresting ordinary factory workers? In the streets? In broad daylight? It's more like Guantanamo Bay out there. Donna, by the way. Donna Noble; since you didn't ask. I'll have a salute.
[Colonel Mace, who is taken aback at her outburst, looks at the Doctor; the Doctor just give a 'you better do as she says' look; the Colonel salutes her]
Colonel Mace: Mamm.
Donna Noble: Thank you.

The Doctor: [guiding Donna as she tries to fly the TARDIS] Careful... Left hand down, left hand down! Getting a bit too close to the 1980s there.
Donna Noble: What am I going to do? Put a dent in 'em?
The Doctor: Well, someone did.


"Doctor Who: Journey's End (#4.13)" (2008)
Donna Noble: I thought we'd try the planet Feldspoon. Just cause. What a good name, Feldspoon. Apparently it's got mountains that sway in the breeze. Mountains that move, can you imagine?
The Doctor: And how do you know that?
Donna Noble: Because it's in your head. And if it's in your head, it's in mine.
The Doctor: And how does that feel?
Donna Noble: Brilliant, Fantastic, Molto Bene, Great big universe, packed into my brain. You know you can fix that chameleon circuit if you just try hotwiring the fragment links and superseding the binary binary binary binary binary binary binary binary binary binary binary binary binary binary binary
[gasps]
Donna Noble: ... I'm fine!
Donna Noble: Nah! Nevermind Feldspoon. You know who I'd like to meet? Charlie Chaplin. I bet he's great, Charlie Chaplin. Shall we do that, shall we go see Charlie Chaplin?
[picks up phone]
Donna Noble: Shall we, Charlie Chaplin? Charlie Chester, Charlie Brown, no he's fiction,
[puts phone down]
Donna Noble: friction, fiction, fixing, mixing, Rickston, Brixton.
[gasps]

The Doctor: I'm unique - never been another like me, 'cause all that regeneration energy went into the hand. Look at the hand - I love that hand - but then you touched it. *Wham!*
[Donna startles]
The Doctor: Shhhh! Instantaneous biological metacrisis! I grew... out of you. Still, could be worse...
Donna Noble: Oi! Watch it, spaceman!
The Doctor: Oi! Watch it, earthgirl!
[Donna is taken aback]
The Doctor: Oooh... I sound like you! I sound all - all sort of... rough!
Donna Noble: Oi!
The Doctor: Oi!
Donna Noble: Oi!
The Doctor: Spanners, shhhhh! Must've picked up a bit of your voice, that's all - is it? Did I? No! Ohhh, you are kidding me, no way! One heart - I've got one heart. This body... has got only one heart!
Donna Noble: [Donna feels his heart beating] What, like, you're human?
The Doctor: Awww, that's disgusting!
Donna Noble: Oi!
The Doctor: Oi!
Donna Noble: *Stop it!*
The Doctor: [suddenly realizing] No, wait, I'm... part-Time Lord, part human! Well, isn't that wizard?

Dalek Caan: The prophesy must complete!
Davros: Don't listen to him!
Dalek Caan: I have seen the end of everything Dalek, and you must make it happen, Doctor!
Cloned Doctor: He's right, cause with or without a Reality Bomb this Dalek Empire's big enough to slaughter the cosmos. They've gotta be stopped!

Cloned Doctor: Fulfillin' the prophesy.

Wilfred Mott: You're so clever, can't you bring her memory back? Just go to her now, go on, just run across the street, go up and say hello!
The Doctor: If she ever remembers me her mind will burn and she will die!
Donna Noble: [to meter maid outside] Don't you touch this car!
The Doctor: [laughing] She's not changed.
