The Doctor: Ok! One more. Just one. Is this world protected? Because you’re not the first lot to come here. Oh, there have been so many! And what you’ve got to ask is… what happened to them? (The Atraxi shows all The Doctors) Hello. I’m the Doctor. Basically… run!

ANGEL BOB: The Angels are wondering what you hope to achieve.
THE DOCTOR: We’re just hanging. It’s nice in here, consoles, comfy chairs, a forest. How’s things with you?
ANGEL BOB: The Angels are feasting, sir. Soon we will be able to absorb enough power to consume this vessel, this world, and all the stars and worlds beyond.
THE DOCTOR: Well, we’ve got comfy chairs, did I mention?
ANGEL BOB: We have no need of comfy chairs.
THE DOCTOR: [laughing] I made him say comfy chairs. 5x05

Amy: Stay with us, please, just for a bit? I want you to stay.
Doctor: Fine with me!
Rory: Yes, I would like that!
Amy: Nice one! I will put the kettle on. Hey look at this, got my space ship, got my boys, my work here is done!
Rory: Pft… we are not her boys!
Doctor: Yeah we are.
Rory: Yeah we are. 5x06

“Hey. Amy. Amy. Amy. Amy. Amy. Amy. Amy.”
“I’m in the shower. AHURHURHURHUR.” 

Craig: That was incredible. That was absolutely brilliant. Where did you learn to cook?
The Doctor: Paris in the eighteenth century. No, hang on, that’s not recent, is it? Seventeenth. No, no, no, twentieth. Sorry, I’m not used to doing it in the right order.
Craig: Has anyone ever told you that you’re a bit weird?
The Doctor: They never really stop.

The Doctor: Rory! That’s a relief. Thought I’d burst out of the wrong cake. Again. That reminds me, there is a girl standing outside in a bikini. Could someone let her in and maybe get her a jumper? Lucy…lovely girl. (Whispers) Diabetic.

DOCTOR: Well, I wanted to see how you were, you know me I don’t just abandon people when they leave the TARDIS. This Timelord’s for life, you don’t get rid of your old pal The Doctor so easily.
AMY: Mmm, you came here by mistake didn’t ya?
DOCTOR: Yeah, bit of a mistake, but look, what a result. Look at this… bench. What a nice bench. What will they think of next?

Rory: We were married.
Amy: Yeah. In a little village.
Rory: Sweet little village, and you were… pregnant.
Amy: Yes, I was huge! I was a boat!
Rory: So we had the same dream then? Exactly the same dream.
Amy: Are you calling me a boat?

Doctor: I’m missing something obvious, Rory, something big, something right slap in front of me, I can feel it.
Rory: Yeah, I think you probably are.
Doctor: I’ll get it in a minute.
[The Doctor realises it’s Rory. He pokes Rory in the chest.]
Hello again.
Rory: Hello.
Doctor: How have you been?
Rory: Good, yeah, good. I mean, Roman.
Doctor: Rory, I’m not trying to be rude, but you died.
Rory: Yeah, I know. I was there.
Doctor: You died, and then you were erased from time. You didn’t just die, you were never born at all, you never existed.
Rory: Erased. What does that mean?
Doctor: How can you be here?
Rory: I don’t know. It’s kind of fuzzy.
Doctor: Fuzzy.
Rory: Well, I died and turned into a Roman. It’s very distracting.

Rory: This box needs a guard, I killed the last one.
Doctor: No, Rory, no. Don’t even think about it.
Rory: She’ll be all alone.
Doctor: She won’t feel it.
Rory: No, you bet she won’t feel it.
Doctor: Two thousand years, Rory, you won’t even sleep. You’ll be conscious every second, it would drive you… mad.
Rory: Will she be safer if I stay? Look me in the eye and tell me she wouldn’t be safer.
Doctor: Rory…
Rory: Answer me!
Doctor: Yes. Obviously.
Rory: Then how could I leave her?
Doctor: Why do you have to be so… human?
Rory: Because right now I’m not.

Rory: Hello!
Amy: Do you feel like you’ve forgotten something really important? Do you feel like there’s a great big thing in your head and you feel like you should remember it but you can’t?
Rory: Yep?
Amy: Are you just saying that since you’re scared of me?
Rory: Yep.
Amy: I love you.
Rory: Yep. I mean, I love you too!

Can I talk about this scene for a moment? If you don’t want to read, feel free to delete the text. I really don’t care. But for real, can I talk for just one second?

 The Doctor’s just told Rory to step away from his wife, the woman he loves more than anything else in the entire universe, and it’s pretty evident in both the Doctor’s voice and his expression that this is imperative. If there was ever a time that Rory had to listen to what he was saying, this was it; this shit is vital. And if Rory doesn’t listen and do what the Doctor is asking telling him, then the Doctor will find a way to do it. Because this shit? It has to happen. And even though Rory wants his wife to be safe and will do anything to ensure her safety, he does what the Doctor tells him.  He does it because he trusts the Doctor, because he knows that the Doctor loves Amy just as much as he does, because Rory knows that the Doctor loves him, too, and would never do anything to hurt him. Which is why Rory has to listen - not because the Doctor told him to, but because he knows in his heart that this is the right thing to do. 

i don’t think it occured to me before this episode that it’s entirely possible that rory has known amy longer than the doctor has. can’t you see it? amy coming to leadworth, impossibly scottish and red haired and all alone after her parents have died, and she goes to school and she’s so nervous and on her first day there’s little rory williams, and he sees her and trips over himself because’s he’s never seen anyone so fascinating. and everyone else thinks she’s bizarre and weird except rory - who can’t get enough of mad impossible amy pond, who reads a million picture books about scotland just so he has something to talk to her about and they run around leadworth together chasing ducks and tipping over the ice cream stand and having the time of their lives and compared to that friendship amy’s life before that had just been incredibly grey. and even before the doctor comes she tells rory about the crack in her wall and the whispering and he thinks it’s just a game but he believes her anyway because he’s RORY and he loves her already and then the doctor barges in and throws her life upside down and he builds up this hope in amy, who sees someone big and brave and someone who can protect her like a parent can, and then he leaves and he breaks her heart and CAN’T YOU JUST SEE HER? little amy pond, running up to little rory williams, bawling her eyes out: ‘he didn’t come back, rory… he said he’d come and get me but he never came back…’ and right then and there eight year old rory makes a decision to always come back for amy, to never ever leave her. and then amy is sadder than ever and then rory says to her WHY DO WE PLAY ‘AMY AND THE RAGGEDY DOCTOR?’ and he just makes this game out of it and they’re running around leadworth and they cut up rory’s old clothes and his mother is FURIOUS but it doesn’t matter because amy is smiling again, and they use a branch as the sonic screwdriver and they build TARDISes out of cardboard boxes they find and even though her aunt takes her to shrinks and they make amy feel like she’s crazy she’s got rory, one person who believes in her and then as she’s growing up and becoming her own person outside of her relationship with rory and her meeting with the doctor, and she starts to ~date and she makes other friends and she slowly but surely becomes sassy foxy amy and then she gets to the point where she realises she doesn’t WANT anyone but rory and they get together and IT’S A BEAUTIFUL THING and then the doctor comes back and rory takes it into his stride so quickly, because deep down he’s always believed amy and then suddenly here’s the raggedy doctor in the flesh and just like amy, who was an ~outsider, fascinated him years ago, the doctor and his life engrosses rory again and he educates himself about black holes and space and shit and i just - rory waiting for amy is just so HIM, as opposed to the doctor, who is impatient and who can’t sit still and who is horrified by the thought of experiencing time in a straight line, rory waits it out, and rory stays there with amy because that’s what he’s always done and he doesn’t know any other way. there’s amy without the doctor and amy when she’s around the doctor and it’s like two different people but rory loves her completely, and it’s only when the doctor is around that he starts to doubt himself because, well, it’s the DOCTOR and it’s like an elephant comparing themselves to babar or some shit and it’s slowly dawning on rory that amy depends on him right back, and that she knows that doctor is always going to be the variable and rory is the constant. he’s her constant.
