Episode List

Journey's End

The Doctor: Now then. Where were we?

Sarah Jane (Elisabeth Sladen): Mickey!
Mickey (Noel Clarke): Us Smiths gotta stick together.
Jackie (Camille Coduri): Jackie Tyler, Roses' mum. Now where the hell is my daughter?

The Doctor: You see? Used the regeneration energy to heal myself, but as soon as that was done I didn't need to change. I didn't want to. Why would I? Look at me! So to stop the energy from going all the way, I siphoned off the rest into a handy biometric receptacle. Namely, my hand. My hand there. My handy spare hand. Remember? Christmas Day. Sycorax. Lost my hand in a sword fight. That's my hand. What do you think?
Rose: You're still you.
The Doctor: I'm still me.

Donna to Jack: You can hug me if you want. {Jack laughs.} No really. You can hug me.

Ianto: It's a Time Lock. The ultimate defense program. Tosh was working on it. Never thought she finished it, but she did. The Hub's sealed in a time bubble nothing can get in.
Gwen: But that means we can't get out.
Ianto: Nope. Not without unlocking that Dalek. We're trapped inside. It's all up to Jack now.

Jack: There's a massive Dalek ship at the center of the planets. They're calling it The Crucible. I guess that's our destination.
Donna: You said these planets are like an engine. But what for?
The Doctor: Rose, you've been in a parallel world. You've seen the future. What was it?
Rose: It's the Darkness.
Donna: The stars were going out.
Rose: One by one. They were just dying. Basically we've been building this, um, travel machine. This, uh, dimension cannon so I could, uh, so I—
The Doctor: What?
Rose: So I could come back. Shut up. Anyway suddenly it started to work. And the dimension started to collapse. And not just in our world, not just in yours, but the whole of reality. Even the void was dead. Something is destroying everything.
Donna: In that parallel world, you said something about me.
Rose: The dimension could measure timelines. And it's weird, Donna, but they all seem to converge on you.
Donna: But why me? I mean, what have I ever done? I'm a temp from Chiswick.

The Doctor: The Dalek Crucible. All aboard.

The Doctor: We'll have to go out. Because if we don't they'll get in.
Rose: You told me nothing could get through those doors.
Jack: You've got extrapolator shielding.
The Doctor: Last time we fought the Daleks they were scavengers and hybrids. And mad. But this is a fully-fledged Dalek Empire. At the height of its power. Experts at fighting TARDIS's. They can do anything. Right now that wooden door. Is just wood.

Dalek: Surrender Doctor! And face your Dalek masters!

Rose: Daleks.
Jack trying to be flip: Oh god!
The Doctor: It's been good though, hasn't it? All of us. All of it. Everything we did. to Donna: You were brilliant. to Jack: And you were brilliant. to Rose: And you were brilliant. Blimey!

Red Dalek: The female and the TARDIS will perish together!

Donna: It's you.
The Doctor: Oh yes!
Donna: You're naked.
The Doctor: Oh yes.

The Human/Doctor: All repaired. Lovely. Shhhh! No one knows we're here. Gotta keep quiet. Silent running. Like on submarines where they can't even drop a spanner. Don't drop a spanner. I like blue. What d'you think?
Donna: You. Are. Bonkers!
The Human/Doctor: Why? What's wrong with blue?
Donna: Is that what Time Lords do? Lop a bit off, grow another one? You're like worms!
The Human/Doctor: No no no no. I'm unique. Never been another like me. 'Cause all that regeneration energy went into the hand. Look at my hand! I love the hand. But then you touched it— WHAM! Shhhhh!! Instantaneous biological metacrisis. I grew out of you. Still. Could be worse.
Donna: Oy! Watch it, Spaceman!
The Human/Doctor: Oy! Watch it, Earthgirl! {surprised} I sound like you. I sound all... all sort of... rough.
Donna: Oy!
The Human/Doctor: Oy!
Donna: Oy!
The Human/Doctor: Spanners! Shhhhh. Must've picked up a bit of your voice that's all. Is it— Did I— No. You are kidding me. No way. One heart. I got one heart. This body's got only one heart.
Donna: What, like you're human?
The Human/Doctor: Ahh, that's disgusting.
Donna: Oy!
The Human/Doctor: Oy!!!
Donna: Stop it!
The Human/Doctor: No, wait I'm.... part-Time Lord, part-human. Well isn't that wizard.
Donna: I kept hearing that noise. That heartbeat.
The Human/Doctor: Oh that was me. My single heart. 'Cause I'm a complicated man of time and space. Must've rippled back. Converging on you.
Donna: But why me?
The Human/Doctor: 'Cause you're special.
Donna: I keep telling you, I'm not.
The Human/Doctor: No but you are. Oh.... you really don't believe that, do you? I can see, Donna, what you're thinking. All that attitude, all that lip— 'Cause all this time, you think you're not worth it.
Donna: Stop it.
The Human/Doctor: Shouting at the world 'cause no one's listening. Well, why should they.
Donna: Doctor. Stop it.
The Human/Doctor: But look at what you did! No.... it's more than that. It's like... we were always heading for this. You came to the TARDIS. And you found me again. Your Wilfred, your car. Donna, your car! You parked your car right where the TARDIS was going to land. Oh! We've been blind. Something's been drawing us together for such a long time.
Donna: But you're talking, like, destiny. There's no such thing. Is there?
The Human/Doctor: It's still not finished. It's like... the pattern's not complete. The strands are still drawing together. But heading for what?

The Doctor: The Supreme Dalek said "vault". Yeah? As in dungeon. Cellar. Prison. You're not in charge of the Daleks, are you? They've got you locked away down here in the basement like what? A servant? Slave? Court Jester?
Davros: We have... an arrangement.
The Doctor: No no no no. No. I've got the word. You're the Daleks' pet!

Rose: What is that thing?
The Doctor: You've met before. The last of the Cult of Skaro. But it flew into the Time War unprotected.
Davros: Caan did more than that. He saw time. Its infinite complexity and majesty raging through his mind. And he saw you. Both of you.
Caan: This I have foreseen! In the wild and the wind! The Doctor will be here as witness at the end of everything! The Doctor and his precious Children of Time! And one of them will die!

Davros: Why so shy? Show your companion. Show her your true self. Dalek Caan has promised me that too.
Caan: I have seen into the time of ending. The Doctor's soul will be revealed.
The Doctor: What does that mean?
Davros: We will discover it together. Our final journey. Because the ending approaches. The testing begins.
The Doctor: The testing of what?
Davros: The Reality Bomb.

Davros: That test was focused on the prisoners alone. Full transmission will dissolve every form of matter.
Rose: The stars going out.
The Doctor: The twenty-seven planets. They become one vast transmitter, blasting out wavelengths—
Davros: Across the entire Universe. Never stopping, never faltering, never fading. People and planets and stars will become dust. And the dust will become atoms and the atoms will become... nothing. And the wave length will continue, breaking through the rift at the heart of the Medusa Cascade into every dimension, every parallel, every single corner of creation. This is my ultimate victory, Doctor! The destruction of reality itself!

The Human/Doctor: It's not over yet, Sweetheart.

Jack busting in through the air shaft: Just my luck. I climb through two miles of ventilation shafts chasing life signs on this thing and who do I find? Mickey Mouse!
Mickey: You can talk, Captain Cheesecake. {they hug.}
Jack: Good to see you! And that's Beefcake.
Mickey: And that's enough hugging.
Jack: We meet at last, Ms. Smith.
Sarah Jane: There is something we can do. You've got to understand. I've got a son down there on Earth. He's only fourteen years old. I brought this. It was given to me by a Verron soothsayer. He said, "This is for the End of Days."
Jack: Is that a Warp Star?

The Doctor: What's an Osterhagen Key?!
Martha: There's a chain of twenty-five nuclear warheads. Placed in strategic points beneath the Earth's crust. If I use the key, they detonate and the Earth gets ripped apart.
The Doctor: What?! Who invented that— well, someone called Osterhagen, I suppose. Martha, are you insane?!

Rose: Oh she's good!
Martha: Who's that?
Rose: My name's Rose. Rose Tyler.
Martha: Oh my god, he found you.

Davros: Impossible. That face, after all these years.
Sarah Jane: Davros.

Davros: The man who abhors violence. Never carrying a gun. But this is the truth, Doctor. You take ordinary people and you fashion them into weapons. Behold your Children of Time transformed into murderers. I made the Daleks, Doctor. You made this.

Davros: The Doctor. The man who keeps running. Never looking back. Because he dare not out of shame. This is my final victory, Doctor. I have shown you yourself.

Davros: I was wrong about your warriors, Doctor. They are pathetic.

Donna: Mmm. Closing all zed neutrino relay loops using an internalized synchronous back feed reversal loop. {flips open a panel.} That button there.

The Doctor: Donna, you can't even change a plug.
Donna: Do you wanna bet, Time Boy.
Davros: You'll suffer for this.
Donna: Oohhh. Bio electric dampening field with a retrogressive arc inversion.
Davros: Exterminate her!
Daleks: Exterminate! Exterminate! Weapons nonfunctional!
Donna: Wha? Macro transmission of a k-field wavelength blocking Dalek weaponry in a self-replicating semi-bifold matrix?
The Doctor: How did you work that out? You're—
The Human/Doctor: Time Lord. Part-Time Lord.
Donna: Part-human. Oh yes. That was a two-way biological metacrisis. Half-Doctor Half-Donna.
The Doctor: The Doctor Donna! Just like the Ood said. Remember? They saw it coming. The Doctor Donna.

Donna: Well, don't just stand there you skinny boys in suits! Get to work!

The Human/Doctor: That's brilliant!
The Doctor: Why didn't we ever think of that?
Donna: Because you two were just Time Lords, you dumbos. Lacking that little bit of human—that gut instinct that comes hand-in-hand with planet Earth. I can think of ideas you two couldn't dream up in a million years. Ah, the Universe's been waiting for me!

Donna: Did I ever tell ya? Best temp in Chiswick. Hundreds words per minute.
The Human/Doctor: Ha!

Davros: But you promised me, Dalek Caan. Why did you not foresee this?
The Doctor: Oh I think he did. Something's been manipulating the timelines for ages. Getting Donna Noble to the right place at the right time.
Caan: This would always have happened. I only helped, Doctor.
Davros: You betrayed the Daleks!
Caan: I saw the Daleks, what we have done throughout time and space. I saw the truth of us, Creator. And I decreed no more!

Rose: So there's three of you. Three Doctors.
Jack: I can't even tell you what I'm thinking right now.

Davros: But you promised me, Dalek Caan. Why did you not foresee this?
The Doctor: Oh I think he did. Something's been manipulating the timelines for ages. Getting Donna Noble to the right place at the right time.
Caan: This would always have happened. I only helped, Doctor.
Davros: You betrayed the Daleks.
Caan: I saw the Daleks! What we have done throughout time and space. I saw the truth of us, Creator. And I decreed, "No more."

Gwen: There goes the time lock.

Caan: One will still die.

Sarah Jane: What about the Earth? It's stuck in the wrong part of space.
The Doctor: I'm on it! Torchwood Hub, this is the Doctor. Are you receiving me?
Gwen: Loud and clear. Is Jack there?
The Doctor: Can't get rid of him. Jack, what's her name?
Jack: Gwen Cooper.
The Doctor: Tell me, Gwen Cooper, are you from an old Cardiff family?
Gwen: Yes. All the way back to the 1800s.
The Doctor: Ah. Though so. Spatial genetic multiplicity. It's a funny old world.

The Doctor: C'mon, Luke. Shake a leg!

Sarah Jane: K-9! Out you come!
The Doctor: Oh! Good dog!

The Doctor: 'Cause you know why this TARDIS is always rattling around the place? It's designed to have six pilots and I have to do it single-handed. But not anymore! Now we can fly this thing like it's meant to be flown!

Sarah Jane: You know, you act like such a lonely man. But look at you. You've got the biggest family on Earth.

Mickey: I'm gonna miss you, more than anyone.
Jackie: What d'you mean? Doctor's gonna take us home, isn't he?
Mickey: And that's the point.

The Doctor to Jack: I told you! No teleport. And Martha, get rid of that Osterhagen thing. Eh? Save the world one more time.
Martha: Consider it done.

Jack: You know, I'm not sure about UNIT these days. Maybe there's something else you could be doing.

The Doctor: Oy! Where you going?
Mickey: Well I'm not stupid. I can work out what happens next. And, hey, I had a good time in that parallel world, but my Gran passed away. Nice and peaceful. Spent her last years living in a mansion. There's nothing there for me now. Certainly not Rose.
The Doctor: What'll you do?
Mickey: Anything. Brand new life. Just you watch. See ya Boss! {running after Jack and Martha.} Hey, you two!
Jack: Oh. Thought I got rid of you.

The Doctor: It's time for one last trip. Dårlig ulv stranden. Better known as... [Bad Wolf Bay].

Jackie: Oh, fat lot of good this is. Back of beyond. Bloody Norway. I'm gonna have to phone your father. He's on the nursery run. I was pregnant, do you remember? Had a baby boy.
The Doctor: Ah! Brilliant. What'd you call him?
Jackie: Doctor.
The Doctor: Really?
Jackie: No, you plum. He's called Tony.

The Human/Doctor: But you made me.
The Doctor: Exactly. You were born in battle. Full of blood and anger and revenge. to Rose. Remind you of someone? That's me, when we first met. And you made me better. Now you can do the same for him.
Rose: But he's not you.
The Doctor: He needs you. That's very me.

The Human/Doctor: I've only got one life, Rose Tyler. I could spend it with you. If you want.

Rose: Al lright both of you, answer me this. When I last stood on this beach—on the worst day of my life—what was the last thing you said to me? Go on, say it.
The Doctor: I said "Rose Tyler."
Rose: Yeah, and? How was that sentence gonna end?
The Doctor: Does it need saying?
Rose: And you, Doctor? What was the end of that sentence. he whispers in her ear and she turns to kiss him as The Doctor and Donna slip away into the TARDIS

Donna: I thought we'd try the planet Fellspoon. Just 'cause. What a good name. "Fellspoon." Apparently it's got mountains that sway in the breeze. Mountains that move. Can you imagine?
The Doctor: And how do you know that.
Donna: Because it's in your head. And if it's in your head, it's in mine.
The Doctor: And how does that feel.
Donna: Brilliant! Fantastic! Molto bene! Great big universe packed into my brain. You know you could fix that Chameleon circuit if you just tried hotwiring it into the fragment-links and superseding the binary— binary— binary— binary— binary— binary— ... I'm fine! Nah, never mind Fellspoon. You know who I'd love to meet? Charlie Chaplin. I bet he's great, Charlie Chaplin. Should we do that? Should we go see Charlie Chaplin? Charlie Chaplin Charlie Chester Charlie Brown. No, he's fiction friction fiction fixing mixing rixton Brixton. Oh my god!
The Doctor: Do you know what's happening?
Donna: Yeah.
The Doctor: There's never been a Human-Time Lord metacrisis before now. And you know why.
Donna: Because there can't be. I want to stay.
The Doctor: Look at me. Donna, look at me!
Donna: I was gonna be with you. Forever.
The Doctor: I know.
Donna: Rest of my life. Traveling. In the TARDIS. The Doctor Donna. Oh, oh my god, I can't go back. Don't make me go back. Doctor, please! Please don't make me go back.
The Doctor: Donna. Oh, Donna Noble. I am so sorry. But we had the best of times. The best. Goodbye.
Donna: No! No! Please! No!

Wilfred: That must be her! Donna! Ha ha!
The Doctor: Help me!
Wilfred: Donna?

The Doctor: She took my mind into her own head, but that's a Time Lord consciousness. All that knowledge, it was killing her.
Wilfred: But she'll get better now?
The Doctor: I had to wipe her mind completely. Every trace of me or the TARDIS. Anything we did together, everywhere we went. Had to go.
Wilfred: All those wonderful things she did.
The Doctor: I know. But that version of Donna is dead. 'Cause if she remembers, just for a second, she'll burn up. You can never tell her. You can't mention me or any of it. For the rest of her life.
Sylvia: But the whole world's talking about it. We traveled across space.
The Doctor: It'll just be a story. One of those Donna Noble stories, where she missed it all again.
Wilfred: But she was better with you!
Sylvia: Don't say that!
Wilfred: Well she was!
The Doctor: I just want you know there are worlds out there safe in the sky because of her. And there are people living in the light and singing songs of Donna Noble a thousand million light years away. They will never forget her. While she can never remember. But for one moment, one shining moment, she was the most important woman in the whole wide universe.
Sylvia: She still is. She's my daughter.
The Doctor: Then maybe you should tell her that once in awhile.

Wilfred: Oh, Doctor. What about you now? Who've you got? I mean, all those friends of yours.
The Doctor: They've all got someone else. Still that's fine. I'm fine.
Wilfred: I'll watch out for you, sir.
The Doctor: You can't ever tell her!
Wilfred: No no. But every night, Doctor. When it gets dark, and the stars come out, I'll look up on her behalf. I'll look up at the sky. And think of you.
The Doctor: Thank you.
