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.]
Doctor: Hello again.
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.
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.
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.
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?
Amy: Are you just saying that since you’re scared of me?
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.
