[as K9 quietly cuts a hole in a panel of wood with his blaster to allow the Doctor ingress to the castle, bells start ringing]

K9: You ordered me to make no noise, Master.
Doctor Who: Just get on with it!

Doctor Who: Now, listen. There's bound to be lots of stairs in there. You stay here and keep an eye on the boat, hmm? I might have to bring the others out this way if anything goes wrong.
K9: Affirmative, Master.
Doctor Who: And don't fall in the water.
K9: I am familiar with boats, Master.
Doctor Who: You old sea-dog, you! Now don't forget: stand guard and be careful! Be careful!

K9: Master?
The Doctor: Not now, K9, not now! Now... K9... can you track the Mentiads by their psycho-spoor?

Doctor Who: Gateway? Gateway to where?

Doctor Who: K-9! Just the chap I wanted.
