"Doctor Who: The Waters of Mars" (2009)
Adelaide: But you said we die. For the future. For the human race!
The Doctor: Yes, because there are laws. There are laws of time. Once upon a time there were people in charge of those laws but they died. They all died. Do you know who that leaves? *Me!* It's taken me all these years to realize that the laws of time are *mine* and they will obey me!

Adelaide: You saved us?
Adelaide: Just think, though. Your daughter and your daughter's daughter, you can see them again. Family reunion.
Adelaide: [Shakes her head "no"] But I'm supposed to be dead.
The Doctor: Not anymore.
Adelaide: But... Susie... my granddaughter... wasn't she supposed to become... we'll never exist now.
The Doctor: Nah, Captain Adelaide can inspire her face-to-face. Different details, but the story's the same.
Adelaide: You can't know that! And if my family changes... the whole of history could change! The future of the human race! No one should have that much power!
The Doctor: Tough.
Adelaide: [Backs away from the Doctor, unsure of what is going on] You should have left us there.
The Doctor: Adelaide, I've done this sort of thing before. In small ways, saved some little people. But never someone as important as you. Ooh, I'm good!
The Doctor: Little people? What, like Mia and Yuri? Who decides they're so unimportant? You?
The Doctor: For a long time now, I thought I was just a survivor, but I'm not. I'm the winner. That's who I am. A Time Lord victorious.
Adelaide: And there's no one to stop you?
The Doctor: No.
Adelaide: [Noticeably angry] This is wrong, Doctor! I don't care who you are! The Time Lord victorious is wrong!
The Doctor: That's for me to decide. Now, you'd better get home. Oh, it's all locked up. You've been away. Still, that's easy...
[uses the Sonic Screwdriver to unlock and open the door to Adelaide's house, then puts the Sonic Screwdriver away]
The Doctor: All yours.
Adelaide: Is there nothing you can't do?
The Doctor: Not anymore.
Adelaide: [Walks inside the house, takes out her gun, shuts the door, and kills herself]
The Doctor: [Turns back to the TARDIS, but takes a look back right after Adelaide kills herself. Shocked, he realizes the full effect of what he has done. He has changed the future. Adelaide Brooke died on Earth, rather than Mars as she was supposed to. There are two survivors around to tell her story]
Adelaide: [Echo, in the Doctor's mind] I don't care who you are! The Time Lord victorious is wrong!
The Doctor: [Sees Ood Sigma] I've gone too far! Is this it? My death? Is it time?
[Ood Sigma disappears. The Doctor runs back into the TARDIS and starts the dematerialization process. The Cloister Bell rings]
The Doctor: No!

Adelaide Brooke: State your name, rank and intention.
The Doctor: The Doctor, doctor, fun.

Adelaide Brooke: [holding a gun by the Doctor's head] If we could cut the chat, everyone.
The Doctor: Actually, chat's second on my list, the first being gun, pointed at my head.
The Doctor: Which then puts my head second and chat third, I think. Gun, head, chat, yeah. I hate lists. But you could hurt someone with that. Just, put it down.
Adelaide Brooke: Oh, you'd like that.
The Doctor: Can you find me someone who wouldn't?

Adelaide Brooke: It can't be stopped. Don't die with us.
The Doctor: No, someone told me just recently, they said I was going to die, they said, he will knock four times. And I know what that means, it doesn't mean right here, right now, cause I don't hear anyone knocking, do you?
[Andy knocks on the metal door three times]
The Doctor: Three knocks is all you're getting!
[the Doctor electrifies the door and Andy]
The Doctor: Water and electricity, bad mix!

Adelaide: Don't drink the water. Don't even touch it. Not one drop.

Adelaide Brooke: What's that device?
The Doctor: Screwdriver.
Adelaide Brooke: Are you the doctor or the janitor?
The Doctor: I don't know. Sounds like me. The maintenance man of the universe.
