I hate being sick. I’m not even really that sick; I just have a horrible ear infection. I didn’t know they could hurt this much. I can’t listen to music, I can’t watch Doctor Who (most of the episodes available to me are only available through Xfinity TV’s website), I can’t even sleep properly. I have the whole week off, and this entire week I’ve been getting no extra sleep. Ugh.
Well, at least I have Doctor Who to look forward to this weekend. I’m even going to make fish fingers and custard. So, today I’ll post some of my favorite Doctor Who quotes from the new series.
Mickey: I bet you don’t even remember my name!
The Doctor: Ricky.
Mickey: It’s Mickey!
The Doctor: No, it’s Ricky.
Mickey: I think I know my own name!
The Doctor: You think you know your own name? How stupid are you?
- Aliens in London
"Who looks at a screwdriver and thinks, ‘ooh, this could be a little more sonic’?"
- The Doctor Dances
"One may tolerate a world of demons for the sake of an angel."
- The Girl in the Fireplace
The Doctor: Name?
General Staal: General Staal of the Tenth Sontaran Battle Fleet. “Staal The Undefeated!”
The Doctor: Oh that’s no good. What if you get defeated? “Staal The Not-Quite-So-Undefeated-Any-More-But-Never-Mind?”
- The Sontaran Stratagem
The Doctor: You wanted to come fourteen years ago.
Amy: I grew up.
The Doctor: Don’t worry, I’ll soon fix that.
- The Eleventh Hour
The Doctor: Okay, okay! [Picks up a large spanner] Okay, soldier, defend yourself! [beats Dalek with spanner repeatedly]
Dalek: You do not require tea?
- Victory of the Daleks
The Dream Lord: If you die in the dream, you wake up in reality. Healthy recovery in next to no time. Ask me what happens if you die in reality.
Rory: What happens?
The Dream Lord: You die, stupid. That’s why it’s called “reality”.
- Amy’s Choice
"Excuse me, I’m making perfect sense; you’re just not keeping up."
-The Hungry Earth
Vincent: But you’re not armed!
The Doctor: I am!
Vincent: What with?
The Doctor: Overconfidence, this, and a small screwdriver. I’m absolutely sorted.
"The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don’t always soften the bad things, but vice versa the bad things don’t always spoil the good things and make them unimportant. And we definitely added to his pile of good things."
- Vincent and the Doctor
"Big flashy lighty things have got me written all over them. Well, not actually, but give me time. And a crayon."
The Doctor: Right, so what are we gonna do? Eat crisps and talk about girls? I’ve never done that, but I bet it’s easy. Girls, yeah?
Young Kazran: Are you really a babysitter?
The Doctor: I think you’ll find that I’m universally recognized as a mature and responsible adult. [shows him his psychic paper]
Young Kazran: …It’s just a lot of wavy lines.
The Doctor: …Yeah, it shorted out. Finally, a lie too big. Okay, no, not really a babysitter, but this Christmas Eve, you don’t want a real one. You want me.
Young Kazran: Why? What’s so special about you?
The Doctor: Have you ever seen Mary Poppins?
Young Kazran: No.
The Doctor: Good, because that comparison would have been rubbish.

Rest in peace, Elisabeth Sladen.
