[first lines]
John: Aahh!
Professor Travers: John? John, where are you?
John: [yelling] Aahh! Aahh!

Professor Travers: [taunting] It's a 100 foot drop outside that window. There's no way out you know.
The Doctor: [cheerfully] I didn't think there would be.
Professor Travers: How did you track me down?
The Doctor: [puzzled] Track you down? I don't even know who you are.
Professor Travers: Don't play the innocent with me! It won't work. If it wasn't for my expedition you wouldn't be here. Hmm. You're one of those wretched newspaper men.
The Doctor: [totally puzzled] Paper Men? I wish I know what you are talking about?
Professor Travers: Oh yes! You laughed at me in the press didn't you. "Travers - the mad anthropologist". After that, even my own Society wouldn't finance me.
[firmly]
Professor Travers: But I know they're here. Twenty years I've been searching.
The Doctor: Twenty years!
Professor Travers: I've staked my reputation and every penny I own on this expedition. Now, when I'm close to finding them, you want to steal my glory! Just for the sake of a cheap headline.
The Doctor: Finding them? Finding what?
Professor Travers: [getting angry at the Doctor's words] Don't pretend. They're here. Somewhere on these mountains.
The Doctor: [almost shouting] What are?
Professor Travers: You know! The Yeti! The Abominable Snowmen!


Downtime (1995) (V)
Travers: Tell me, Brigadier, which part of my great plan do you admire the most?
Brigadier: None of it. For a so-called Intelligence it's pretty damned stupid.

[first lines]
Dr. Who: It was Songsten who took this pyramid into the cave.
Travers: That's right.
Jamie: And the Yeti never harmed him?
Travers: No.
Dr. Who: Songsten. He's the link I've been looking for.
Thonmi: But Khrisong is with Songsten now.
Dr. Who: Then he is in danger!


"Doctor Who: The Web of Fear: Episode 4 (#5.26)" (1968)
[first lines]
Professor Travers: Run! It's the yeti!
[screams in terror. Anne screams]


"Doctor Who: The Abominable Snowmen: Episode 3 (#5.7)" (1967)
[first lines]
Dr. Who: Jamie, when you captured this creature, you must have dislodged its control unit.
Jamie: Then it must still be lying out there.
Dr. Who: Precisely!
Khrisong: Where are you going?
Dr. Who: To have a look outside the gates. I want that unit. Come on, Jamie.
Khrisong: No! I will not allow it.
Dr. Who: But why not?
Khrisong: I trust no one to leave the monastery. You say this creature is not a real Yeti.
Dr. Who: It's metal. It's been made.
Khrisong: And sent against us. Why? Why does someone wish harm to the monks of Detsen. I will trust no stranger until these questions are answered.
Jamie: Ah, but we're on your side! Have we not convinced you yet?
Khrisong: I am convinced of nothing.
Victoria: The Doctor knows all about this sort of thing. Why not let him help you?
Dr. Who: Well if you don't trust us at least send Thomni, or one of your other warriors.
Khrisong: No! I will not allow the gates to be opened!
Dr. Who: If you want us to help...
Khrisong: I do not need your help! Thomni, guard them!
[walks out]
Dr. Who: Oh dear, a very obstinate man.
Travers: Yes, well that's that I suppose. Nothing we can do about it now.
[Moving towards the door]
Travers: Um, well I... I think I'll just go and get a bit of shut-eye. Good night all.


"Doctor Who: The Abominable Snowmen: Episode 5 (#5.9)" (1967)
[last lines]
Jamie: Doctor!
Victoria: I think.
Dr. Who: Khrisong, I have found the control.
Khrisong: It is too late, Doctor, I can no longer help you.
Dr. Who: But you don't understand! It's here! In the monastery.
Travers: What? That's impossible!
Sapan: But the monastery is empty, we are all here.
Dr. Who: Are we? Are we all here?
Thonmi: The Master!
Sapan: Songsten is with him!
Khrisong: Then he is in great danger! Stay where you are. All of you.
Travers: I remember. Songsten, the Yeti, on the mountain. Yes, yes, it's all coming back to me.
Jamie: Tell us.
Travers: There was this cave...


"Doctor Who: The Abominable Snowmen: Episode 2 (#5.6)" (1967)
[last lines]
Dr. Who: [looking at the Yeti] You were right about one thing, Victoria. This creature... certainly doesn't seem to be flesh and blood.
Travers: What?
Dr. Who: It's not your Abominable Snowman either, Travers. Look.
[He taps it and it is a hard surface. The creature gives off a strange metallic sound]
Dr. Who: Metal.
Travers: That's incredible!
Thonmi: What is it?
Khrisong: A devils warrior.
Dr. Who: No, I don't think so. It's more like a robot.
Travers: A robot? My dear chap, don't let your imagination run away with you!
Dr. Who: Now, why has it stopped? Wait a minute... Wait a minute!
[discovers an empty round pouch on the creature's stomach]
Victoria: Nothing there.
Dr. Who: [puts his hands in the pouch] No. But there has been!
