"Doctor Who: The Three Doctors: Episode Two (#10.2)" (1973)
Brigadier Lethbridge Stewart: Now, there's just two things I want from you, Doctor: an effective way of controlling that stuff and the safe return of Miss Grant.
Sergeant Benton: Well, what about OUR Doctor, sir? Don't you want HIM back?
Brigadier Lethbridge Stewart: None of that nonsense, Benton. I've GOT him back. As long as he does the job, he can wear what face he likes.
Dr. Who: Well, I'll do my best, but I can't make any promises.
Brigadier Lethbridge Stewart: Well, in that case, you better consult with those all-powerful superiors of yours for THEIR advice.
Dr. Who: Oh, I don't think THAT would do any good. At the moment, they're FAR from being all-powerful. That's why it's been left up to me and me and me.

Sergeant Benton: Well, what are we gonna do now?
Dr. Who: Keep it confused. Feed it with useless information. I wonder if I have a television set handy?

Dr. Who: Here you are, Sergeant. You'll need this. Now, if it gives the slightest trouble, a little dose of that will settle it.
Sergeant Benton: Yes, but say that doesn't work, Doctor.
Dr. Who: THEN GIVE IT THE LOT!

The Doctor: A very good question, Brigadier.
Brigadier Lethbridge Stewart: Doctor. Glad to see you're back. Miss Grant, what on earth are you doing in that extraordinary get-up? And where, for heaven's sake, is Sergeant Benton?
Stuart Hyde: [grabbing Dr. Ruth Ingram's arm] The baby! We forgot the baby!
[Stuart and Ruth look over the defunct TOMTIT device. Sgt. Benton rises from behind, nude, having burst out of his infant form's diaper]

Sergeant Benton: Uh, I was just checking, sir.
Captain Yates: Yes, well I want you to go and check on number 3 patrol. Move, Sergeant Benton.
Sergeant Benton: Sir.
[he leaves]

[the Doctor collapses again. Harry Sullivan enters]
Harry: This is the patient, sir?
The Doctor: And stupid.
The Doctor: [sits up again, clutching Sarah] The square on the hypotenuse equals the sum of the square on the other two sides. Why is a mouse when it spins? Never did know the answer to that one.
Sergeant Benton: [entering] Excuse me, sir. The daily reports.
Harry: Take him to the sick bay, I'll make a proper examination there.
Sergeant Benton: What's happening, sir? Who's...
