Quotes

Dr. Who: [talking about needing a leader] Jano, since you have destroyed the power you held over Chal and his people, you realize now, of course, that you've got to learn to live together.

Jano: Yes. But the fear and hatred of the past will only die slowly. We need someone like yourself as a mediator until we have become one people.

Dr. Who: I see. But in my case, I am afraid that is utterly impossible.

Jano: The man we need must inspire trust. His judgments must come from his heart even more than his head.

Chal: [the Doctor smiles knowingly, as Chal and Jano turn to Steven] Here is the leader we want, Jano.

Jano: This is what I thought.

Steven: [struggling for words and looking surprised at the choice of him for leader] Just a minute. I couldn't...

Dr. Who: A great honour, dear boy.

Steven: But I can't walk out on you and Dodo!

Dr. Who: Just think of the challenge to be able to set up the people on this planet for a new life. You're quite ready for this task.

Steven: You think I can do it?

Dr. Who: Yes, I do. And you're the only man who can, my boy.

Steven: [to Chal] And the offer come from both sides?

Chal: You would give us new hope. Our people will become great again - we will learn to live as equals - without bitterness.

Steven: What about Tor?

Tor: I should accept your decisions.

Steven: [there is a moment's silence as Steven considers the momentous decision] Very well. I will stay.

Chal: Thank you... and thank you! You have justified our faith.

Dodo: [running over to Steven to be comforted] Oh Steven!

Steven: [giving Dodo a hug] I shall miss you both, Dodo.

[last lines]

Dr. Who: [Steven saying goodbye] Well, I must say, young man, I'm very proud of you.

Steven: Doctor, I don't know if...

Dr. Who: I know, I know my boy. Well, go on, you mustn't keep them waiting.

Steven: [shaking hands with the Doctor] Goodbye, Doctor.

Dr. Who: [shaking Steven's hand] Goodbye Steven, and good luck.

[Steven turns and hurries away. But at the door, he hesitates and sadly turns back to give a last look at the Doctor and Dodo. He gives a small wave, and disappears]

Dodo: [sobbing] Doctor, do you think we'll ever see him again?

Dr. Who: [comforting Dodo] Well, who knows, my dear? In this strange complex of time and space, anything can happen.

[turning to leave]

Dr. Who: Come along, little one, we must go.

[arm-in-arm, the Doctor and Dodo stroll out of the devastated laboratory]

Dr. Who: We mustn't look back.

Dodo: [talking to the Doctor, surrounded by Nanina and Steven] Are you all right, Doctor?

Dr. Who: Yes, I think so, my dear. I must have fallen into some kind of a coma. It was as though... as though all my powers had been sapped.

Dr. Who: [triumphantly to Dodo] You know, my dear, there's something very satisfying, about destroying something that's evil. Don't you think?

Dodo: Yes!

[Dodo joins in the destruction of the lab as the Doctor looks exasperated]
