"Doctor Who: Dalek (#1.6)" (2005)
Adam Mitchell: The thing is it's all true. Everything the United Nations tries to keep quiet. Spacecraft. Aliens. Visitors to Earth. They really exist.
Rose Tyler: [who knows all this anyway] That's amazing.
Adam Mitchell: I know it sounds incredible, but I honestly believe the whole universe is just teeming with life.

The Doctor: [referring to alien object Henry van Statten is holding] I really wouldn't hold it like that.
Diana Goddard: Shut it.
The Doctor: Really though, that's wrong
Adam Mitchell: Is it dangerous?
The Doctor: No, it just looks silly

Adam Mitchell: It doesn't do much - the alien. It's weird, it's kind of... useless, it's just like this... great big pepper pot.

Adam Mitchell: Van Statten has agents all over the world looking for geniuses to recruit.
Rose Tyler: Oh right, you're a genius?
Adam Mitchell: Sorry, but yeah. I can't help it. I was born clever. When I was eight I logged onto the US Defence System, nearly caused World War Three.
Rose Tyler: What? And that's funny is it?
Adam Mitchell: Well, you shoulda been there. Just to see them running about... Fantastic!

Rose Tyler: Stairs. That's more life it. It hasn't got legs. It's stuck.
[they climb up the stairs]
De Maggio: It's coming.
Adam Mitchell: [Rose, Adam and De Maggio run up a flight of stairs to get away from the Dalek] Great big evil alien death machine, defeated by a flight of stairs! Is that clear?
De Maggio: Now listen to me. I demand that you return to your cage. If you want to negotiate, then I can guarantee that Mr. Van Statten will be willing to talk. I accept that we imprisoned you, and maybe that was wrong. But people have died. And that stops, right now. The killing stops... have you got that? I demand that you surrender.
Dalek: Elevate!
[the Dalek begins to fly up the stairs]
Rose Tyler: Oh my God!

Adam Mitchell: [Adam introduces Mr. Van Statten to Rose and The Doctor] This is Mr. Van Statten.
Rose Tyler: And who is he when he's not at home?
Adam Mitchell: Mr. Van Statten owns the Internet.
Rose Tyler: Don't be so stupid. No-one owns the Internet!
Henry Van Statten: [grinning] And let's just keep the whole world thinking that way, right kid?

Adam Mitchell: [about the Doctor] Are you and him...?
Rose Tyler: No. We're just friends.
Adam Mitchell: Good.
Rose Tyler: Why is that good?
Adam Mitchell: [smiling] It just is.

The Doctor: Next flight to Heathrow leaves at 1500 hours.
Rose Tyler: Adam was saying all his life he wanted to see the stars.
The Doctor: Tell him to go and stand outside, then.
Rose Tyler: He is all on his own, Doctor, and he did help.
The Doctor: He left you down there.
Rose Tyler: So did you.
Adam: what are you talking about? We've got to leave!
The Doctor: Plus, he's a bit pretty.
Rose Tyler: [innocently] I hadn't noticed.
The Doctor: On your own head...
Adam: [Rose and The Doctor step into the Tardis] What are you doing? She said cement. She wasn't joking - we're gonna get sealed in
Adam: [walking towards the Tardis] Doctor? What are you doing standing inside a box? Rose?


"Doctor Who: The Long Game (#1.7)" (2005)
The Doctor: [the Doctor takes Adam back home to Earth] The whole of history could have changed because of you.
Adam: I just wanted to help.
The Doctor: You were helping yourself.
Adam: And I'm sorry and I've said I'm sorry. And I am, I really am. But you can't just leave me like this!
The Doctor: Yes, I can. 'Cause if you show the head to anyone, they'll dissect you in seconds. You'll have to live a very quiet life. Keep out of trouble. Be average. Unseen. Good luck.

Adam Mitchell: Maybe I could just go and sit on the observation desk. Would that be alright? Soak it in. Y'know, pretend I'm a citizen of the year two hundred thousand.
Rose Tyler: D'you want me to come with you?
Adam Mitchell: No, no. You stick with the Doctor.
[pause]
Adam Mitchell: You'd rather be with him.
[pause]
Adam Mitchell: It's gonna take a better man than me to get between you two.

Adam: Oh my God, I'm going to be sick!
[He heaves. His cheeks puff. Then he stops. He frowns. Puzzled. Strangely calm, he reaches into his mouth, and plucks out a sick-coloured lozenge]
Nurse: Special offer, we installed a vomit-o-matic at the same time. Now that turbines have been installed in the lining of your throat, in the event of sickness, they freeze the waste.

Adam: But I want to come with you!
The Doctor: I only take the best. I've got Rose.

Adam: If they're all human, what about the millions of planets, the millions of species? Where are they?
The Doctor: Good question. Actually, that is a good question.

Adam: Sorry. Um, Floor Sixteen? That's um, what do you cover?
Nurse: Medical. Non Emergency.
Adam: Right. Yeah. Wrong floor. I'm having technical difficulties. My screen keeps freezing. Blocking me out.
Nurse: No, that's medical. There must be something wrong with your chip.
Adam: Yes. Yeah, of course, yeah. I haven't got one.
Nurse: No wonder you can't get a screen to work. What are you, a student?
Adam: Yes. Yeah, I'm uh on a research project from the University of Mars.
Nurse: The Martian Bondox... typical.
Adam: Yep.
Nurse: Well, you still need chipping.
Adam: So, does that mean like brain surgery?
Nurse: That's the old fashioned term, but it's the same thing, yes.
