: Answer me this - just one question, that's all. If the Doctor had never visited us, if he'd never chosen this place... on a whim... would anybody here have died?
[the Doctor does not answer
] Joan Redfern
: You can go now.
: How can you think I'm not real? When I kissed you, was that a lie? Joan Redfern
: No, it wasn't, no John Smith
: But this 'Doctor' sounds like some, some romantic lost prince. Would you rather that? Am I not enough? Joan Redfern
: No, that's not true, never. John Smith
: I've got to go. Joan Redfern
: Martha was right about one thing though; those boys, they're children. John Smith wouldn't want them to fight, never mind the Doctor. The John Smith I was getting to know... he knows it's wrong, doesn't he? John Smith
: What choice do I have?
: I'm Sorry, John. But you wrote about it. The Blue Box. You dreamt of a blue box. John Smith
: I'm not...
] John Smith
: I'm John Smith, that's all I want to be, John Smith. With his life... and his job... and his love. Why can't I be John Smith? Isn't he a good man? Why can't I stay? Martha Jones
: But we need the Doctor. John Smith
: Who am I then? Nothing...? I'm just a story?
: Where is he... John Smith? The Doctor
: He's in here somewhere. Joan Redfern
: Like a story... could you change back? The Doctor
: Yes. Joan Redfern
: Will you? The Doctor
: Women might train to be doctors, but hardly a scivvy and hardly one of your colour. Martha Jones
: Oh, d'you think? Bones of the hand. Carpal bones, proximal row: scaphoid, lunate, triquetral, pisiform. Distal row: trapezium, trapezoid, capitate, hamate. Then the metacarpal bones extending in three distinct phalanges: proximal, middle, distal. Joan Redfern
: You read that in a book. Martha Jones
: Yes, to pass my exams!
: It's all becoming clear. The Doctor is the man you'd like to be, doing impossible things with cricket balls. John Smith
: Well, I discovered a talent, that's certainly true. Joan Redfern
: And the Doctor has an eye for the ladies... John Smith
: The devil. Joan Redfern
: A girl in every fireplace. John Smith
: Aha now, there I have to protest Joan, that's hardly me. Joan Redfern
: Says the man dancing with me tonight!
: Where did you learn to draw? John Smith
: Gallifrey. Joan Redfern
: Is that in Ireland? John Smith
: Yes it must be. Joan Redfern
: You're not Irish? John Smith
: Not at all, no. My father Sydney was a watchmaker from Nottingham, and my mother Verity was - well, she was a nurse, actually. Joan Redfern
: Oh, we make such good wives!
