Quotes

The Doctor: I'm the Doctor, by the way, what's your name?

Rose Tyler: Rose.

The Doctor: Nice to meet you, Rose, - run for yer life!

Rose Tyler: If you are an alien how come you sound like you're from the North?

The Doctor: Lots of planets have a North!

Rose Tyler: What did you say your name was?

The Doctor: I told you; The Doctor.

Rose Tyler: Yeah, but, Doctor what?

The Doctor: Just The Doctor.

Rose Tyler: The doctor?

The Doctor: Hello!

Rose Tyler: Is that meant to be impressive?

The Doctor: Sort of, yeah.

Rose Tyler: Really though, Doctor. Tell me. Who are you?

The Doctor: Do you know like we were saying, about the earth revolving? It's like when you're a kid, the first time they tell you that the world is turning and you just can't quite believe it 'cause everything looks like it's standing still. I can feel it...

[he takes her hand]

The Doctor:

  • the turn of the earth. The ground beneath our feet is spinning at a thousand miles an hour. The entire planet is hurtling around the sun at sixty seven thousand miles an hour. And I can feel it. We're falling through space, you and me, clinging to the skin of this tiny little world. And, if we let go...


[He releases her hand]

The Doctor: That's who I am. Now forget me, Rose Tyler. Go home.

[last lines]

The Doctor: By the way, did I also mention it also travels in time?

Rose Tyler: [to Mickey] Thanks.

Mickey Smith: Thanks for what?

Rose Tyler: Exactly.

[she kisses him, then turns and runs toward the TARDIS]

Rose Tyler: [after the Doctor saves Rose from the Auton attack in the basement, they travel in the lift] You pulled his arm off!

The Doctor: Yep! Plastic

Rose Tyler: Very clever, nice trick. Who were they then, students? Is this a student thing or what?

The Doctor: Why would they be students?

Rose Tyler: I dunno.

The Doctor: Well you said it, why students?

Rose Tyler: Cos... to get that many people dressed up and being silly... they gotta be students.

The Doctor: That makes sense. Well done!

Rose Tyler: Thanks.

The Doctor: They're not students.

The Doctor: [faces her] Where did you want to start?

Rose Tyler: Um...

[looking around the TARDIS]

Rose Tyler: The inside's bigger than the outside?

The Doctor: Yes.

Rose Tyler: It's alien?

The Doctor: Yep.

Rose Tyler: Are you alien?

The Doctor: Yes.

[pause]

The Doctor: Is that all right?

Rose Tyler: [little too quickly] Yeah.

Rose Tyler: Alright, then. I'll go to the police. I'll tell everyone. You said, if I did that, I'd get people killed. So, your choice. Tell me, or I'll start talking.

The Doctor: Is that supposed to sound tough?

Rose Tyler: Sort of.

The Doctor: Doesn't work.

The Doctor: [leafing through Rose's copy of 'Heat' magazine] That won't last. He's gay and she's an alien.

The Doctor: [explaining to Rose about the Autons as he goes through the shop] They're made of plastic. Living plastic creatures. And they're being controlled by a relay device on the roof. Which would be a great big problem, if I didn't have this.

[takes out an explosive device]

The Doctor: So I'm going to go upstairs and blow it up, and I might well die in the process, but don't worry about me, no. You go on home.

[guides Rose through the fire-door]

The Doctor: go on and have your lovely beans on toast. Don't tell anyone about this 'cause if you do, you'll get them killed.

[slams the door]

[inviting Rose onto the TARDIS]

The Doctor: This isn't just a London Hopper, you know. It can go anywhere in the universe, free of charge.

Mickey Smith: Don't! He's an alien! He's a thing!

The Doctor: He's not invited.

The Doctor: [from trailer] D'you wanna come with me? 'Cause if you do then I should warn you; you'll see all sorts of things. Ghosts from the past. Aliens from the future. The day the Earth died in a ball of flame. It won't be safe, it won't be quiet and it won't be calm. But I'll tell you what it will be; the trip of a lifetime!

Rose Tyler: What's a Police Public Call Box?

The Doctor: It's a telephone box from the 1950s. It's a disguise.

Rose Tyler: What have I done wrong? How come those plastic things keep coming after me?

The Doctor: Oh, suddenly the world revolves around you! You were just an accident. You got in the way, that's all.

Rose Tyler: It tried to kill me!

The Doctor: It was after me, not you. Last night in the shop, I was there, you blundered in, almost ruined the whole thing. This morning I was tracking it down, it was tracking me down. The only reason it fixed on you was because you met me.

Rose Tyler: So what you're saying is that the whole world revolves around you?

The Doctor: Sort of, yeah!

Rose Tyler: You're full of it.

The Doctor: Sort of, yeah!

The Doctor: It's called the TARDIS, this thing. T.A.R.D.I.S. That's Time And Relative Dimension In Space.

[Rose starts crying]

The Doctor: Culture shock. Don't worry, it happens to the best of us.

Jackie Tyler: Arianna got two thousand quid off the council just 'cause the old man behind the desk said she looked Greek. I know she is Greek but that's besides the point - it was still a valid claim.

The Doctor: Oh, I didn't think of that.

Rose Tyler: Oh, great. The butchers.

Rose Tyler: [laughing] Well, yeah.

The Doctor: It's not a price war.

The Doctor: They wanna overthrow the human race and destroy it. Do you believe me?

Rose Tyler: I'll have to tell his mother.

The Doctor: [blank, uncomprehending stare]

Rose Tyler: Mickey! I'll have to tell his mother he's dead. And you just went and forgot him - again! You were right - you are alien.

The Doctor: Look: if I did forget some kid called Mickey...

Rose Tyler: He's not a kid!

The Doctor:

  • it's because I'm busy trying to save the life of every stupid ape blunderin' about on top of this planet! Alright?


Rose Tyler: Alright?

The Doctor: Yes! It is!

Rose Tyler: Do you think I should try the hospital? Suki said they had jobs going in the canteen. Is that it then? Dishin' out chips? I could do A-levels. I dunno. It's all Jimmy Stone's fault. If I hadn't left school because of him; look where he ended up. What do you think?

Mickey Smith: [fixed smile disappears] So where did you meet this Doctor?

Rose Tyler: I'm sorry, was I talking about me for a second?

Mickey Smith: Because I reckon it all started back at the shop, am I right? Was he something to do with that?

Rose Tyler: No.

Mickey Smith: [smile returning] Come on.

Rose Tyler: Sort of.

Mickey Smith: [smile goes and returns] What was he doin' there?

Rose Tyler: I'm not going on about him, Mickey, really, I'm not, because, I know it sounds daft, but... I don't think he's safe. He's dangerous.

Mickey Smith: But you can trust me, sweetheart. Babe, babe, sugar, babe, sugar. You can tell me anything. Tell me about the Doctor and what he's plannin' and I can help you, Rose. 'Cause that's all I really want to do, sweetheart. Sugar, babe, babe, babe, sugar, sweetheart.

Rose Tyler: What are you doing that for?

Waiter in leather jacket: Your champagne.

Mickey Smith: We didn't order any champagne. Where's the Doctor?

Waiter in leather jacket: Madam, your champagne.

Rose Tyler: It, it's, it's not ours. Mickey, what is it? What's wrong?

Mickey Smith: I need to find out how much he knows, so where is he?

Waiter in leather jacket: Doesn't anybody want this champagne?

Mickey Smith: [looking up] Look, we didn't order an...

Mickey Smith: [recognizes the Doctor] Ah, gotcha.

The Doctor: [shaking bottle] Don't mind me. I'm just toastin' the happy couple. On the house!

[the Doctor pops the cork into Mickey's forehead where it is absorbed in a rubbery way. With plasticky sounds, Mickey dramatically rolls it around and spits it out his mouth]

Mickey Smith: Anyway.

[Mickey's hand turns into a flesh-coloured pizza oven board and smashes the table. A woman screams as Rose backs away. The Doctor puts Mickey into a headlock and pulls at it, again and again and again, until Mickey's head comes clean off with a pop in his hands and the body falls]

The Doctor: Yeah!

Mickey Smith's head: [his eyes pop open and look at the Doctor] Don't think that's gonna stop me.

Clive Finch: If you dig deep enough and keep a lively mind, this Doctor keeps cropping up all over the place. Political diaries, conspiracy theories... even ghost stories. No first name, no last name. Just 'The Doctor'. Always 'The Doctor'.

Rose Tyler: Okay. And this living plastic, what's it got against us?

The Doctor: It loves you. You've got such a good planet! Lots of smoke and oil, plenty of toxins and dioxins in the air... perfect. Just what the Nestene Consciousness needs. Its food stock was destroyed in the war, all its protein plants rotted, so Earth: dinner!
