Clara: After you. I'm wearing a dress. Eyes front, soldier.

The Doctor: My eyes are always front.

Clara: [the Doctor climbs up the ladder] Mine aren't.

The Doctor: Stop it!

Clara: No.

The Doctor: Don't be clever, Strax. It doesn't suit you.

Strax: Sorry, sir.

The Doctor: I'm the clever one. You're the potato one.

Strax: Yes, sir.

The Doctor: Now, go away.

Jenny: Madame Vastra will ask you questions. You will confine yourself to single word responses. One word only. Do you understand?

Clara: Why?

Madame Vastra: Truth is singular. Lies are words, words, and words. You met the Doctor, didn't you?

Clara: Yes.

Madame Vastra: And, now, you've come looking for him again. Why?

Jenny: [as Clara hesitates] Take your time. One word only.

Clara: Curiosity.

Madame Vastra: About?

Clara: Snow.

Madame Vastra: And about him?

Clara: Yes.

Madame Vastra: What do you want from him?

Clara: Help.

Madame Vastra: Why?

Clara: Danger.

Madame Vastra: Why would he help *you*?

Clara: [taken aback] Kindness.

[Jenny looks to Madame Vastra]

Madame Vastra: The Doctor is not kind.

Clara: No?

Madame Vastra: No. The Doctor doesn't help people. Not anyone, not ever. He stands *above* this world and doesn't interfere in the affairs of its inhabitants. He is not your salvation, nor your protector. Do you understand what I am saying to you?

Clara: Words.

[Madame Vastra is now taken aback, her lie called out. Jenny looks proudly at Clara]

Madame Vastra: He was... different, once. A long time ago. Kind, yes. A hero, even. The saver of worlds. But he suffered losses that hurt him. Now, he prefers isolation to the possibility of pain's return. Kindly choose a word to indicate your understanding of this.

Clara: Man.

[Madame Vastra looks to Jenny, who imperceptibly but enthusiastically nods rapidly]

Strax: Sir, permission to express my opposition to your current apathy.

The Doctor: Permission granted.

Strax: Sir, I am opposed to your current apathy.

The Doctor: Thank you Strax. And if I'm ever in the need of advice from a psychotic potato dwarf, you'll certainly be the first to know.

The Doctor: What are you doing here?

Strax: Madam Vastra was wondering if you needed any grenades.

The Doctor: Grenades?

Strax: [thinking] She might have said help.

Clara: [Clara enters the TARDIS, for the first time] It's smaller on the outside.

The Doctor: OK That is a first.

The Doctor: [to Strax] Where is it?

Strax: Where's what, sir?

The Doctor: I sent you to get the memory worm.

Strax: Did you? When?

[referring to Clara]

Strax: Who's he? What are we doing here? Look, it's been snowing.

The Doctor: You didn't use the gauntlets, did you?

Strax: Why would I need the gauntlets? Do you want me to get the memory worm?

The Doctor: [muttering] You...

The Doctor: Multi-nucleate, crystalline organism with the ability to mimic and mirror what it finds. Looks like snow. Isn't snow.

The Doctor: Shut up. I'm making deductions, it's very exciting.

Alice: Captain Latimer! In the garden, there's snowmen! And they're just growing! Out of nowhere by themselves! Look!

Madame Vastra: Good evening! I'm a lizard woman from the dawn of time and this is my wife.

Strax: This dwelling is under attack. Remain calm, human scum.

The Doctor: So. Any questions?

Madame Vastra: You can't help yourself. It's the same story every time, and it always begins with the same two words.

The Doctor: She'll never be able to find me again. She doesn't even have the name Doctor. What two words?

Clara: Doctor? Doctor who?
