"Doctor Who: A Good Man Goes to War (#6.7)" (2011)
Madame Vastra: When did this baby... begin?
The Doctor: Oh, you mean...?
Madame Vastra: Quite.
The Doctor: Well how would I know? That's all humany private stuff. It just sort of goes on, they don't put up a balloon or anything!
Madame Vastra: Could the child have begun on the TARDIS, in flight, in the Vortex?
The Doctor: No! No! Impossible! It's all running about, sexy fish vampires, and blowing up stuff; and Rory wasn't even there at the beginning, then he was *dead*, then he didn't exist, then he was plastic, then I had to reboot the whole Universe-long story- so, technically, the first time they were on the TARDIS together in this version of reality was on their w...
Madame Vastra: On their what?
Dorium Maldovar: Hmm?
The Doctor: On their wedding night.

Dorium Maldovar: [TARDIS materializing] No! No, no please! Not me! You don't need me! Why would you need me? I'm old! I'm fat! I'm blue!

The Doctor: Doesn't make sense. You can't just cook yourself a Time Lord!
Madame Vastra: Of course not. But you gave them one hell of a start and they've been working hard every since.
Dorium Maldovar: And yet they gave in so easily. Does this not bother anyone else?
The Doctor: Amy, she worried the baby would have a "time head", she said that- that- that...
Madame Vastra: Only you would ignore the instincts of a mother!
Dorium Maldovar: Or the instincts of a coward! This is too easy; there's something wrong!
The Doctor: Why even do it? Even if you could get your hands on a brand-new Time Lord, what for?
Madame Vastra: A weapon?
The Doctor: Why would a Time Lord be a weapon?
Madame Vastra: Well...
Madame Vastra: [exchanges glances with Dorian, sighs] they've seen *you*.
[pause]
The Doctor: Me?
Madame Vastra: Mr. Maldovar, you are right, this was... *too* easy. We should get back to the others.
The Doctor: [sits down, whispers] Me?

Dorium Maldovar: I admire your courage; I should like to admire it from afar.


"Doctor Who: The Wedding of River Song (#6.13)" (2011)
Dorium Maldovar: Have you got wi-fi here? I'm bored already and my nose is hurting!

The Doctor: The Teselecta. The Doctor in a Doctor-suit. Time said I had to be on that beach, so I dressed for the occasion. Barely got singed in that boat.
Dorium Maldovar: So you're going to do this, let them all think you're dead?
The Doctor: It's the only way, then they can all forget me. I got too big, Dorium, too noisy. Time to step back into the shadows.
Dorium Maldovar: And Doctor Song? In prison all her days?
The Doctor: Her days, yes. Her nights... well, that's between her and me, eh?
Dorium Maldovar: So many secrets, Doctor.
[chuckles]
Dorium Maldovar: I'll help you keep them, of course.
The Doctor: Well, you're not exactly going anywhere, are you?
Dorium Maldovar: But you're a fool nonetheless. It's all still waiting for you: the fields of Trenzalore, the fall of the Eleventh, and the question!
The Doctor: [salutes] Goodbye, Dorium!
Dorium Maldovar: [as Doctor exits] The first question! The question that must never be answered, hidden in plain sight. The question you've been running from all your life. Doctor who? Doctor who? Doc-tor *who*?

The Eleventh Doctor: They want me dead?
Dorium: No, not really. They just don't want you to remain alive.
The Eleventh Doctor: That's okay, then. I was a bit worried for a minute there.

The Doctor: Why Lake Silencio? Why... Utah?
Dorium Maldovar: It's a still point in time. Makes it easier to create a *fixed* point. And your death is a fixed point, Doctor. You can't run away from this.
The Doctor: Been running all my life. Why should I stop?
Dorium Maldovar: Because now you know what's at stake. Why your life must end.
The Doctor: Not today.
Dorium Maldovar: What's the point in delaying? How long have you delayed already?
The Doctor: Been knocking about. Bit of a farewell tour. Things to do, people to see. There's always more! I could invent a new color, save the dodo, join the Beatles!
[to phone]
The Doctor: Hello, it's me! Get him, tell him we're going out, and it's all on me, except for the money and the driving!
[to Dorium]
The Doctor: I have got a time machine, Dorium. It's all still going on for me, it never stops. Liz the First is still waiting in a glade to elope with me. I could help Rose Tyler with her homework! I could go on all of Jack's stag parties in one night!
Dorium Maldovar: Time catches up with us all, Doctor!
The Doctor: Well, it has *never* laid a glove on me!
[to phone]
The Doctor: Hello!
Nurse: Doctor, I'm so sorry. We didn't know how to contact you. I'm afraid Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart passed away a few months ago. - Doctor?
The Doctor: ...Ye - eh, uh, yes. Yes. Uh, uhh...
Nurse: It was very peaceful. He talked a lot about you, if that's any comfort. Always made us pour an extra brandy, in case you came round one of these days.
Dorium Maldovar: Doctor? What's wrong?
The Doctor: ...Nothing, nothing. Just...
[Long pause. The Doctor takes the envelopes out of his pocket and looks at them]
The Doctor: It's time. It's time.


"Doctor Who: The Pandorica Opens (#5.12)" (2010)
Dorium: Have you brought me a pretty toy?
River Song: [Removes her earring] This is a Calisto Pulse. It can disarm micro-explosives from 20 feet.
Dorium: What kind of micro-explosives?
River Song: The kind I just put in your wine.
