"Torchwood: Children of Earth: Day Two (#3.2)" (2009)
Rhys Williams: I don't question you defending the world against alien invasion, don't question my knowledge of the hauling industry.

Rhys Williams: How're you, love?
Gwen Cooper: My best friend's belly had a bomb go off in it last night. Someone's been trying to kill us ever since. I'm traveling at 70 miles an hour on top of a bed of potatoes, and I think I'm going to be sick.
Rhys Williams: Travel sick, is it?
Gwen Cooper: When have you ever known me to be travel sick?
Rhys Williams: Well... when have you ever traveled like this?
Gwen Cooper: Mhm.
Rhys Williams: On an empty stomach...
[off Gwen's look]
Rhys Williams: What? What?
Gwen Cooper: You know some of those announcements you, you rehearse in your head. And this wasn't quite what I had in mind
Rhys Williams: What do you mean 'announcements'?
[Gwen smiles]

Gwen Cooper: [Gwen has announced her pregnancy and insists it changes nothing] We're up the same creek and we still need a paddle.

"Torchwood: Ghost Machine (#1.3)" (2006)
Rhys Williams: Are you in or out tonight?
Gwen Cooper: I don't know.
Rhys Williams: Gwen, I can live with all the Secret Squirrel stuff, but if you can't even tell me if you're coming home...
Gwen Cooper: Well, nagging isn't helping.
Rhys Williams: Right, well, that's me told.

Rhys Williams: Look, I don't mind you working all the hours, I really don't, just as long as you still want to come home at the end of it all.
Gwen Cooper: I do. I'm here. And you're gorgeous.


"Torchwood: Combat (#1.11)" (2006)
Rhys Williams: [Gwen had just told Rhys she's been having sex with Owen] Why are you telling me?
Gwen Cooper: Because I'm ashamed! And I'm angry. And I want, I *need*, I need you to forgive me. And because I've drugged you.
Rhys Williams: You've done what?
Gwen Cooper: Just sit down, it's nothing. It's... it's just an amnesia pill, dash of sedative. You'll wake up tomorrow and you'll forget everything. Rhys.
Rhys Williams: God, you selfish bitch!
Gwen Cooper: I know. I just thought it would give us a chance. A chance to get everything out in the open. You know, get everything out! Rhys! Stay with me, Rhys. Say you forgive me. Say, "It's all right, Gwen. Gwen, it's all right. Gwe - " Say it, please, Rhys. Rhys, just say it once. Say it once: "I forgive you." Rhys, *please* *say* it! Say you forgive me! Say you forgive me, say it! Say it, please, say it. Say it, please.

[in an outdoor French bistro, Rhys sees a Weevil in the distance, pursued by Jack]
Rhys Williams: What was that?
[Gwen looks around, sees Jack. Jack sees her and runs over. She smiles]
Gwen Cooper: [noticing Jack's injury] Oh God! What's happened to you?
Captain Jack Harkness: Rhys, is it? Nice to meet you. Sorry too, kind of an emergency. Uh, I'll have her back for dessert. Come on.
Rhys Williams: Hey, hold on, sunshine, that's my girlfriend!
Gwen Cooper: [explaining, cherubic-faced] Rhys, this is Jack!
Rhys Williams: Sit down, Gwen.
Gwen Cooper: [continuing] He's my boss.
Rhys Williams: [shouting] Sit the fuck down!
Gwen Cooper: [pregnant pause, expressionless] Don't ever speak to me like that.
[another dramatic pause]
Captain Jack Harkness: Come on, Gwen. Let's go.
Rhys Williams: [to Jack] Hey, she's with me tonight.
Rhys Williams: [to Gwen] One night off, you promised.
[Gwen stares and picks up her purse]
Rhys Williams: Don't you dare.
[Gwen looks daggers into Rhys and chases after Jack]
Rhys Williams: [yelling] If you go now, Gwen...
[Gwen continues running without one look back]


"Torchwood: Meat (#2.4)" (2008)
Captain Jack Harkness: Before we get ahead of ourselves, we're talking about dodgy pies in Merthyr, okay? And the fact that they're cutting it up alive - which we could've put a stop to already if it wasn't for you.
Rhys Williams: I thought that my fiancée was in danger!
Captain Jack Harkness: Well, Mr. Caveman, she wasn't. She can handle herself.
Gwen Cooper: [warningly] Jack.
Captain Jack Harkness: All you did tonight was mess things up. Now we have to think of a way to get back in, and thanks to you, they'll have tightened security!
Rhys Williams: Well, if you stopped, and asked me exactly what I saw in there instead of showin' off 'round the place...
Captain Jack Harkness: [to Ianto] Do I show off?
Ianto Jones: [nods] Just a bit.
Rhys Williams: ...you'd know that I got out by tellin' them I wanted a job - as a delivery boy. So rather than 'cock things up', I found you a way to get in, but if you can't handle that, big boy, then you can stuff it!
Captain Jack Harkness: [pause, looks at Gwen] This is quite homoerotic.

Ianto Jones: [regarding Gwen] Next time, let her take the bullet.
Rhys Williams: Never.


"Torchwood: Exit Wounds (#2.13)" (2008)
PC Andy: They just appeared out of nowhere, across the whole building. They weren't human. At least not like any human I've ever seen. The whole station is in shock. The four most senior officers murdered. Everyone is running around like headless chickens.
PC Andy: [Andy sees Rhys enter] Whoa, whoa, whoa, Rhys, what are you doing here? This is a crime scene, and a confidential crime scene at that.
[to Gwen]
PC Andy: If it gets out what happened here there will be a citywide panic.
Gwen Cooper: Rhys isn't gonna go blabbing.
Rhys Williams: Yeah, I'm keeping more secrets than you'd ever believe.
PC Andy: Oh yeah, like what?
Rhys Williams: Like a Time Agency based in Cardiff?
Gwen Cooper: No, it's not based in Cardiff!
PC Andy: Brilliant secret - I ask, you tell. Well done!

Captain Jack Harkness: I was the only one who could ever control him. That's why the Time Agency partnered us.
Rhys Williams: Did you just say Time Agency? Don't tell me that is based in Cardiff, too!


"Torchwood: Something Borrowed (#2.9)" (2008)
Gwen Cooper: We're not postponing the wedding. No way.
Rhys Williams: Forget the money, I want you where they can look after you, right? Getting married today doesn't matter.
Gwen Cooper: It matters to me! It's not about the money, Rhys. I want to marry you! Today. Whatever happens. If the skies suddenly fill full of spaceships, or an army of Weevils climb out of the drains on St. Mary's Street, you fool! Do you not understand what I'm saying, Rhys Williams? All I want to do today is marry you. That's all I want to do.

Rhys Williams: You all right?
Gwen Cooper: I'm running around in a wedding dress with what feels like a keg of lager stuck up my skirt. What do you think, Rhys?


"Torchwood: Adrift (#2.11)" (2008)
Gwen Cooper: Do you think I've changed?
Rhys Williams: Eh?
Gwen Cooper: Since I joined Torchwood, am I different?
Rhys Williams: Why?
Gwen Cooper: It's just something Andy said. Okay, let me just tell you this one thing, okay?
Rhys Williams: Okay, go on.
Gwen Cooper: He still fancies me.
[Rhys snickers]
Gwen Cooper: Don't laugh, Rhys. That's why he didn't come to the wedding.
Rhys Williams: Bloody hell, poor sod.
Gwen Cooper: Oi! I'm a very sexy lady and you are a very lucky man. Just remember that, okay?
[unzips her jacket]
Rhys Williams: We're not going to talk about kids tonight, are we?
Gwen Cooper: We could so some practising.


"Torchwood: Children of Earth: Day Four (#3.4)" (2009)
Captain Jack Harkness: All this time the one consolation I had, was the deal seemed to work.
Rhys Williams: It worked for 44 years. That's not a bad breathing space.


"Torchwood: Children of Earth: Day One (#3.1)" (2009)
Gwen Cooper: [mockingly] Oh my God, Severn Bridge. I'm going into England. Farewell forever.
Rhys Williams: [mock-concerned] Good luck. Have you got currency?
Gwen Cooper: Yes, and I've had my injections.


"Torchwood: Children of Earth: Day Five (#3.5)" (2009)
Gwen Cooper: That's what Torchwood does. It ruins your life.
Rhys Williams: How's it ruined?
Gwen Cooper: You want to have kids in a world like this, Rhys?
Rhys Williams: You're not getting rid of it.
Gwen Cooper: Is that right?
