"Doctor Who: The Impossible Planet (#2.8)" (2006)
[the Doctor and Ida have come across the opening of the pit]
The Doctor: It looks like some sort of seal or... I've got a horrible feeling the word is trapdoor. Not a good word trapdoor. Never met a trapdoor I liked.
Zachary Cross Flane: Do you think it'll open?
The Doctor: That's what trapdoors tend to do.

The Doctor: So when it comes right down to it. Why did you come here? Why did you that? Why? I'll tell you why. Because it was there. Brilliant! Excuse me, er Zac wasn't it?
Zachary Cross Flane: That's me.
The Doctor: Just stand there cos I'm going to hug you. Is that alright?
Zachary Cross Flane: Suppose so.
The Doctor: Here we go. C'mon then
[the Doctor hugs Zac]
The Doctor: Human beings. You are amazing. Hah! Thank you.
Zachary Cross Flane: Not at all.
The Doctor: But apart from that you're completely mad. You should pack your bags, get back in that ship and fly for your lives.

The Doctor: There we go, d'you see? To generate that gravity field and the funnel, you'd need a power source with an inverted self-extrapolating reflex of six to the power of six every six seconds.
Rose: That's all the sixes.
The Doctor: And it's impossible.
Zachary Cross Flane: It took us two years to work that out!
The Doctor: I'm very good.

Toby Zed: There was some form of civilization... they buried something. And now it's reaching out, calling.
The Doctor: And you came.
Ida Scott: How could we not?
The Doctor: So, when it comes right down to it, why did you come here? Why did you do that? Why? I'll tell you why: Because it was there! Brilliant! Excuse me, uh, Zack, wasn't it?
Zachary Cross Flane: That's me.
The Doctor: Just stand there, 'cause I'm gonna hug you... Is that all right?
Zachary Cross Flane: 'Spose so.
The Doctor: Here we go. Coming in.
[embraces Captain Crossflane]
The Doctor: Ah! Human beings! You are amazing! Ha! Thank you.
[releases the captain]
Zachary Cross Flane: Not at all.
The Doctor: But apart from that, you're completely mad. You should get back in that ship and fly for your lives.


"Doctor Who: The Satan Pit (#2.9)" (2006)
Mr. Jefferson: Might I ask, if you can't add oxygen to this section, could you speed up the process of its removal?
Zachary Cross Flane: I don't understand, what do you mean?
Mr. Jefferson: If I might choose the manner of my departure, sir, lack of air seems more natural than, let's say "death by ood"
[raises voice]
Mr. Jefferson: I'd appreciate it, sir.
Zachary Cross Flane: God speed, Mr Jefferson.
Mr. Jefferson: [relieved] Thankyou, sir.

The Beast: [lights are all turned off] This is the darkness. This is my domain. You little things that live in the light, clinging to your feeble suns, which die in the end...
Zachary Cross Flane: That's not the ood. Somehing's talking through them.
The Beast: ...only the darkness remains.
Zachary Cross Flane: This is Zachary Cross Flane of Sanctuary Base 6 representing the Torchwood Archive. You will identify yourself.
The Beast: You know my name.
Zachary Cross Flane: What do you want?
The Beast: You will die here, all of you. This planet is your grave.
The Doctor: If you are the Beast, then answer me this: Which one, hmm. Because the universe has been busy since you've been gone. These's more religions than there are planets in the sky. There's the Arkaphets, Christianity, Pash-Pash, New Judaism, San Claar, Church of the Tin Vagabond, which devil are you?
The Beast: All of them!
The Doctor: Then you're... what? The truth behind the myth?
The Beast: This one knows me, as I know him: the killer of his own kind.
The Doctor: [pause] How did you end up on this rock?
The Beast: The Disciples of the Light rose up against me and chained me in the pit for all eternity.
The Doctor: When was this?
The Beast: Before time.
The Doctor: What does "Before time" mean?
The Beast: Before time and light and space and matter. Before the calaclysm. Before this universe was created.
The Doctor: That's impossible. No life could have existed back then.
The Beast: Is that your religion?
The Doctor: [pause] It's a belief.
The Beast: You know nothing. All of you, so small.
[to Zach]
The Beast: The captain, so scared of command.
[to Jefferson]
The Beast: The soldier, haunted by the eyes of his wife.
[to Ida]
The Beast: The scientist, still running from daddy.
[to Danny]
The Beast: The little boy who lied.
[to Toby]
The Beast: The virgin.
[to Rose]
The Beast: And the lost girl, so far away from home. The valiant child, who will die in battle, so very soon.
Rose: Doctor, what does that mean?
The Doctor: Rose, don't listen.
Rose: What does it mean!
The Beast: You will die... and I will live!

Zachary Cross Flane: [after hearing that the Doctor fell down a pit and there is very little time left to escape the planet] We're leaving.
Rose: I'm not going.
Zachary Cross Flane: Rose, there's space for you.
Rose: No, I'm gonna wait for the Doctor, just like he'd wait for me.
Zachary Cross Flane: I'm sorry, but he's dead.
Rose: You don't know him.
[beginning to cry]
Rose: 'Cause he's not. I'm telling you, he's not. And even if he was, how could I leave him... all on his own, all the way down there? No, I'm... I'm gonna stay.
Zachary Cross Flane: Then I apologize for this.
[to his crew]
Zachary Cross Flane: Danny, Toby, make her secure.
Rose: [Struggling and hysterical as she is grabbed and sedated] No! No! No! Stop! No! Let me go! Get off me! I'm not leaving! No!
Zachary Cross Flane: [to the now unconscious Rose] I have lost too many people. I am not leaving you behind.

Danny Bartock: [as Rose wakes up from sedation] Captain, I think we're gonna have a problem passenger.
Zachary Cross Flane: Keep an eye on her.
Danny Bartock: It's all right, Rose. We're safe.
Rose: I'm not going anywhere! Get me out of this thing. Get me out!
Zachary Cross Flane: [as the rocket blasts off] And liftoff!
Rose: [Grabbing a gun and pointing it at the Captain] Take me back to the planet.
[No response]
Rose: Take me back!
Zachary Cross Flane: Or what?
Rose: [Quietly] Or I'll shoot.
Zachary Cross Flane: Would you, though? Would you really? Is that what your Doctor would want?
Rose: [slowly puts the gun down]
