"Doctor Who: The Family of Blood (#3.9)" (2007)
Joan Redfern: 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.

John Smith: 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?

Joan Redfern: I'm Sorry, John. But you wrote about it. The Blue Box. You dreamt of a blue box.
John Smith: I'm not...
[tearful]
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?

Joan Redfern: 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: No.

Joan Redfern: 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!


"Doctor Who: Human Nature (#3.8)" (2007)
Joan Redfern: 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!

Joan Redfern: 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!
