"Doctor Who: Blink (#3.10)" (2007)
Sally Sparrow: But what is it, what's a police box?
Billy Shipton: Well, it's a special kind of phone box for policemen. They used to have them all over, but this isn't a real one. The phone's just a dummy and the windows are the wrong size

Billy Shipton: Where am I?
The Doctor: 1969. Not bad as it goes. You've got the moon landing to look forward to.
Martha Jones: Oh, the moon landing's brilliant. We went four times. Back when we had transport...
The Doctor: Working on it!

The Doctor: Fascinating race, the Weeping Angels. The only psychopaths in the universe to kill you nicely. No mess, no fuss, they just zap you into the past and let you live to death. The rest of your life used up and blown away in the blink of an eye. You die in the past, and in the present they consume the energy of all the days you might have had, all your stolen moments. They're creatures of the abstract. They live off potential energy.
Billy Shipton: What in God's name are you talking about?
Martha Jones: Trust me, just nod when he stops for breath.
The Doctor: Tracked you down with this. This is my timey-wimey detector. It goes ding when there's stuff. Also, it can boil an egg at 30 paces, whether you want it to or not, actually, so I've learned to stay away from hens. It's not pretty when they blow.

Billy Shipton: Drink?
Sally Sparrow: No!
Billy Shipton: Ever?
Sally Sparrow: Maybe.
Billy Shipton: Phone number?
Sally Sparrow: Fine.

Sally Sparrow: Isn't that against protocol, DI Shipton?
Billy Shipton: Billy. I'm off duty.
Sally Sparrow: Aren't you just.

Sally Sparrow: Aren't you on duty, *Detective Inspector Shipton*?
Billy Shipton: Nope. Knocked off before we came down here. Told them I had a family crisis.
Sally Sparrow: Why?
Billy Shipton: Because life is short and you are hot. Drink?

Billy Shipton: And that's Sally...
Sally Sparrow: Shipton. SPARROW!

The Doctor: Welcome!
Billy Shipton: Where am I?
The Doctor: 1969. Not as bad as it goes. You've got the moon landing to look forward to.
Martha Jones: Oh, the moon landing's brilliant. We went 4 times
[At the Doctor]
Martha Jones: Back when we still had transport.
The Doctor: Working on it!
Billy Shipton: How did I get here?
The Doctor: Same way we did. Touch of an angel. Probably the same one since you ended up in the same year. No, no, no, don't get up. Time travel without a capsule. Nasty. Catch your breath, don't go swimming for 30 minutes.
Billy Shipton: I don't. I can't.
The Doctor: Fascinating race, the Weeping Angels. The only psychopaths in the universe to kill you nicely. No mess, no fuss. They just zap you into the past and let you live to death. You die in the past, and in the present, they consume the energy of the life you might have had. They're creatures of the abstract, they live off potential energy.
Billy Shipton: What in God's name are you talking about?
Martha Jones: Trust me, just nod when he stops for breath.
The Doctor: Tracked you down with this.
[Holds up strange machine]
The Doctor: This is my timey, wimey detector. Also, it can boil an egg from 30 paces away. Whether you want it to or not, actually. I've learned to stay away from hens. It's not pretty when they blow.

Old Billy: No, gorgeous girl, you can't. There's only tonight. He told me, all those years ago, that we'll only meet again this one time, on the night I die.
Sally Sparrow: Oh Billy...
Old Billy: It's kept me going; I'm an old sick man but I've had something to look forward to.
[sighs]
Old Billy: Life is long, and you are hot!
[laughs, pause]
Old Billy: Look at my hands. They're old man's hands - how did that happen?
[pause]
Sally Sparrow: I'll stay. I'm gonna stay with you ok?
Old Billy: Thank you Sally Sparrow.
[pause]
Old Billy: I have til the rain stops.

Old Billy: It was raining when we met.
Sally Sparrow: It's the same rain.
