Quotes

Doctor Who: Surely you realize something here must be wrong.
Zargo: Wrong?
Doctor Who: R... yes.
Camilla: What is, is.
Doctor Who: Well, what IS is wrong. Look, societies develop in varying ways. Yours just seems to be sinking back into some sort of primitivism, wouldn't you say so?
Romana: Oh, yes.
Doctor Who: There.
Romana: In terms of applied sociogetics, it's losing it's grip on level two development.
Doctor Who: On level two?
Romana: A society that evolves backwards must be subject to some even more powerful force restraining it.
