Amelia Pond: Are you all right, Mister?
The Doctor: I'm fine! I'm okay! This is all perfectly normal.
Amelia Pond: Who are you?
The Doctor: I don't know yet. Still cooking.

The Doctor: If you knock this wall down the crack would stay put 'cause the crack isn't in the wall.
Amelia: Where is it then?
The Doctor: Everywhere. And everything. It's a split in the skin of the world. Two parts of space and time that should never have touched.

The Doctor: Give me five minutes. I'll be right back.
Amelia: People always say that.
The Doctor: Am I people? Do I even look like people. Trust me. I'm a doctor.

Atraxi: You are not of this world.
The Doctor: No, but I've put a lot of work into it.

Amy: I started to think you were just, like, a mad man with a box.
The Doctor: Amy Pond, there's something you better understand about me 'cause it's important. And one day your life may depend on it. I am definitely a mad man with a box.

Amy: Have you ever run away from something because you were scared. Or not ready. Or just... just because you could.
The Doctor: Once. A long time ago.
Amy: What happened?
The Doctor: Hello.

Amy: You're worried about the Daleks.
The Doctor: I'm always worried about the Daleks.

The Doctor: Trust me?
Amy: Yeah.
The Doctor: Trust me?
River: Always.

The Doctor: The life out there, it dazzles. I mean, it blinds you to the things that are important. I've seen it devour relationships in fact. It's meant to do that. Because for one person to have seen all that, to have tasted the glory, and then go back. It will tear you apart.

Amy: Have you always been this disgusting?
The Doctor: No. That's recent.

The Doctor: Lovely place to grow up 'round here.
Elliot: I suppose. I want to live in the city one day. As soon as I'm old enough I'll be off.
The Doctor: I was the same way where I grew up.
Elliot: Did you get away?
The Doctor: Yeah...
Elliot: Do you ever miss it?
The Doctor: So much.

Alaya: I'm the last of my species.
The Doctor: No, you're really not. Because I'm the last of my species and I know how it sits in a heart. So don't insult me!

Craig: 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, twentieth. Sorry, I'm not used to doing them in the right order.
Craig: Has anyone ever told you that you're a bit weird?
The Doctor: They never really stop.

The Doctor: Now all I've got to do is pass as an ordinary human being. Simple. What could possibly go wrong.
Amy: Have you seen you?

The Doctor: I'll be a story in your head. That's okay. We're all stories in the end. Just make it a good one, eh? 'Cause it was, you know. It was the best. The daft old man who stole a magic box and ran away. Did I ever tell you that I stole it? Well I borrowed it. I was always going to take it back.

A Christmas Carol

The Doctor: Ah. Yes. Blimey. Sorry! Christmas Eve on a rooftop. Saw a chimney, my whole brain just went "What the hell!"

Sardick: The skies of this entire world are mine. My family tamed them and now I own them.
The Doctor: Tamed the sky. What does that mean?
Sardick: It means I'm Kazran Sardick. How could you possibly not know who I am?
The Doctor: Well. Just easily bored, I suppose.

The Doctor: There are 4003 people I won't allow to die tonight. Do you know where that puts you?
Sardick: Where?
The Doctor: 4004.
Sardick: Was that a sort of threaty thing?
The Doctor: Whatever happens tonight, remember: you brought it on yourself.

Amy: Have you got a plan yet?
The Doctor: Yes I do.
Amy: Are you lying?
The Doctor: Yes I am.

Sardick: Who are you?
The Doctor: Tonight I'm the Ghost of Christmas Past.

Series Six

The Doctor peeking out from underneath a dress: You know, this isn't nearly as bad as it looks.

The Doctor: I've been running. Faster than I've ever run. And I've been running my whole life. Now it's time for me to stop. And tonight I'm going to need you all with me.

The Doctor: Oh, a lot more happens in '69 than anyone remembers. Human beings. I thought I'd never get done saving you.

The Doctor: Just popped out to get my special straw. It adds more fizz.

The Doctor: I am being extremely clever up here and there's no one to stand around looking impressed! What's the point in having you all?

The Doctor: You're lying.
Amy: I'm not lying.
The Doctor: Swear to me. Swear to me on something that matters.
Amy: Fish fingers and custard.
The Doctor: My life your hands, Amelia Pond.

River: President Richard Milhouse Nixon. Vietnam. Watergate. There's some good stuff too.
The Doctor: Not enough.
River: Hippy.
The Doctor: Archaeologist.

Delaware: You, sir, are a genius.
The Doctor: A hobby.
