Gwen Cooper: There's one thing I always meant to ask Jack. Back in the old days. I wanted to know about that Doctor of his. The man who appears out of nowhere and saves the world. Except sometimes he doesn't. All those times in history when there was no sign of him, I wanted to know why not. But I don't need to ask any more. I know the answer now. Sometimes the Doctor must look at this planet and turn away in shame. I'm recording this in case anyone ever finds it, so you can see... you can see how the world ended.
Bridget Spears: I'm here to tell you how we met.
Lois Habiba: Who?
Bridget Spears: How I met John Frobisher. It was thirty years ago. You weren't even born. I was on attachment with the civil service, only for six months, and just down the corridor there he was. You wouldn't think it to look at him now but he was a clumsy thing, always losing his key. Mr. Sayles never thought he'd amount to much but I thought, well, keep an eye on that one. And all the others came and went, the high-flyers, they burnt out or went on to something better. And do you know what John Frobisher did? He kept working. Head down, worked hard, all his life. It was another ten years before we actually worked in the same office. He asked for me. I didn't think he even knew my name. And we made quite the team. I'm not saying it was perfect, you know that better than me, but he worked hard. He always worked hard. I don't think that's valued enough these days, hard work. And he was a good man. I want you to know that. John Frobisher was a good man. Because when the history of this is written, they'll talk about the ministers and the soldiers and the things with numbers for names and I think people will forget how very good he was. I want you to remember him like that. If ever you think of John Frobisher just remember that it wasn't his fault.
Captain Jack Harkness: You said it yourself: the world is going to hell any second. Before it does, give us a moment of grace.
Gwen Cooper: I can't tell you.
PC Andy: Hey! I am the police!
Gwen Cooper: Right now, I need you to drive this car, and if I told you...
PC Andy: What? Don't you bloody hate people who don't finish their sentences?
