(9 December 2023)
The Fifteenth Doctor: [first words] No way!

The Fourteenth Doctor: You're me!
The Doctor: No, I'm me... I think I'm really, really me! Oh-ho, I am completely me!

The Doctor: Hello! So good to see you! So good! Now... someone tell me what the hell is going on here?!

The Doctor: Our whole lifetime... That first Doctor that met the Toymaker never, ever stopped. Put on trial. Exiled. Key to Time. All the devastation of Logopolis...
The Fourteenth Doctor: Adric...
The Doctor: Adric. River Song. All the people we lost... Sarah Jane is gone, can you believe that for a second?
The Fourteenth Doctor: I loved her.
The Doctor: I loved her. And Rose. But the Time War, the Pandorica, Mavic Chen... We fought the Gods of Ragnarök, and we didn't stop for a second... to say "what the hell?"
The Fourteenth Doctor: But you're fine!
The Doctor: I'm fine because you fix yourself. We're Time Lords, we're doing rehab out of order.

The Doctor: Now, you two, if you don't mind, there is a great big universe out there calling, and I've gotta get going. So off you pop, old man.
The Fourteenth Doctor: You're the old man; you're older than me!
Donna: Actually, that is true. He's younger, 'cause you came after him, so you're the older Doctor.
The Doctor: Okay, kid. I love you, get out.

Police Officer: Um... Uh, Doctor what would that be?
The Doctor: Just the Doctor!

The Doctor: Who sees a ladder and just hops on? A ladder in the sky, and you thought "Yeah, I'll give that a go, babes!"

The Doctor: What's your name?
Ruby: Ruby. Ruby Sunday.
The Doctor: Hello, Ruby Sunday. And it's a Sunday right now! That's a coincidence. I'm the Doctor. Hi!

Ruby: No, but who are you? Why are you an expert in time-traveling goblins and--
The Doctor: Oh! Pssh... They are not time-travelers, excuse me! Time travelers are great. Like, the best -- like, wow. This lot's just bimble.

The Doctor: I am learning the vocabulary of rope!

The Doctor: I'm adopted.
Ruby: Were you?
The Doctor: Yeah! Yeah, I, uh... I only found out recently.
Carla: That's a coincidence!
Ruby: Oh, don't be saying that!
Carla: So, uh you know who your parents are?
The Doctor: No. No, I was, uh, I was abandoned.

Mrs. Flood: Busy man, sweetheart! You and your box of tricks... You look like you've lost a pound and found a sixpence. What's wrong?
The Doctor: Just wondering... Maybe I'm the bad luck.

Ruby: Who are you?
The Doctor: I'm the Doctor!

Mrs. Flood: Never seen a TARDIS before?

The Doctor: Honey, I'm a much bigger bang than you bargained for. I will shatter this silly little battlefield into dust. In a heartbeat, into dust.
