The Doctor: It's the only place in the Universe where one can relax entirely.
Romana: Hmm... That bouquet!
The Doctor: What Paris has, - it has an ethos... a life... It has...
Romana: A bouquet?
The Doctor: A spirit all of its own. Like a wine, it has a...
Romana: A bouquet.
The Doctor: It has a bouquet. Yeah. Like a good wine. You have to chose one of the vintage years, of course.
Romana: What year is this?
The Doctor: Oh, well... well, it's 1979, actually. More of a table wine, shall we say? Ha! A randomizer is a useful device, but it lacks true discrimination. Shall we sip it and see?
Romana: Oh, I'd be delighted. Should we take the lift or fly?
The Doctor: Let's not be ostentatious.
Romana: All right, let's fly, then.
The Doctor: [decisively] That would look silly. We'll take the lift, come on.

"We invented dynamite.
And with a fools innocence, we thought, this will be the end to war, for who, who saw the damage done by this weapon, would ever want to kill again.
We invented the atomic bomb."

Chantry Brother: "We are all sinners. The fire symbolizes our hope that forgiveness is possible. Thus, we all serve by feeding its flames."
Warden: "So if I sin, I should just set myself on fire?"

Romana II: Don't you think that's a bit dangerous?
The Doctor: No I don't. What could possibly go-
[The TARDIS jolts suddenly causing the Doctor to fall over]
The Doctor: -wrong. You know, I've simply got to stop saying that! Every single time I say "What could possibly go wrong" something goes-
[The TARDIS jolts again, knocking them both over]
The Doctor: It's uncanny! Isn't it?


Duggan: You can't make an omelette without breaking some eggs.
Romana II: If you made an omelette, I'd expect to find a pile of broken crockery, a cooker in flames, and an unconscious chef.

Leliana: "Because then...then they were forbidden, and forbidden fruit is the sweeter, no?"
Warden: "What about your fruit? Is it forbidden?"
Leliana: "My...fruit? I...uhh...."

Sten: "Interesting strategy. Tell me: Do you intend to keep going north until it becomes south, and attack the archdemon from the rear?"
Warden: "It'll never see this coming."

Duggan: You know what I don't understand?
Romana: I expect so.

Romana: So where are we going?
The Doctor: Going? I don't know.
Romana: You have absolutely no sense of responsibility whatsoever!
The Doctor: What?
Romana: You're capricious, arrogant, self-opinionated, irrational, and you don't even know where we're going!
The Doctor: Exactly!

Romana II: Don't go anywhere, will you?
The Doctor: [trapped under a large block] I'd rather hoped you'd resisted the temptation to say that.

Romana I: Newton? Who's Newton?
The Doctor: Old Isaac. Friend of mine on Earth. Discovered gravity. Well, I say he discovered gravity, I had to give him a bit of a prod.
Romana I: What did you do?
The Doctor: Climbed up a tree.
Romana I: And?
The Doctor: Dropped an apple on his head.
Romana I: Ah, and so he discovered gravity?
The Doctor: No, no. He told me to clear off out of his tree. I explained it to him afterwards at dinner.

Romana II: Precious stones?
The Doctor: Very precious. In a geological sense more precious than diamonds. But I need a bigger bit- Ah-ha! [picks up a larger piece of rock] Ha-ha! Ha-ha; I was right!
Romana II: How modest.
The Doctor: Well then see what you make of it.
Romana II: [runs her index finger along the rock and then licks said finger] A composite material. Gravel in a binding of possibly limestone and clay.
The Doctor: Limestone and clay making?
Romana II: Add water, cement.
The Doctor: Add gravel.
Romana II: [smugly] Concrete.
The Doctor: You know something? You've got all the makings of a first-class navvy. Concrete. Manufactured.

"A man who wants to die feels angry and full of life and desperate and bored and exhausted, all at the same time; he wants to fight everyone, and he wants to curl up in a ball and hide in a cupboard somewhere. He wants to say sorry to everyone, and he wants everyone to know just how badly they've all let him down."
— Nick Hornby (A Long Way Down)


A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.

Narrator: What of the Light Warriors and their travels back to the human lands?
Theirs was no easy voyage. They faced challenges at every turn.
Ancient evils were slain, wrongs were righted, and bandits were scattered to the winds.
Many were their adventures in these days and the light warriors grew in power and reputation.
Songs of their exploits were spread by the bards of all the lands of the world.

Unfortunately, a wizard in a far off land had been conducting casuality experiments so he could develop a spell to eat his dinner without having to first prepare it.

Sarda: Why, yes, as a high level wizard, I do feel justified expending so much time on such a trivial trick.
Thanks for asking.

Narrator: The resultant chronoplastic backlash rewrote most recent history.
As for the Light Warriors....

Red mage: Does something seem.. I don't know, different to you guys?
Black Mage: Yeah.
But it also feels correct somehow. Like a horrible mistake was corrected in an instant.

The Doctor: [noticing someone on the TARDIS that looks like Princess Astra] ...What are you doing here?
Romana II: Regenerating. Do you like it?
The Doctor: Regenerating? What are you talking about, regenerating? Only Time Lords regenerate! Look, it's awfully nice to see you, Princess Astra...
Romana II: Romana.
The Doctor: Romana! Ahhhhh...
K9: Aaaaaaahhhhhh...
The Doctor: Shut up, K9. What are you doing in that body?
Romana II: Regenerating. Do you like it?
The Doctor: But you can't wear that body!
Romana II: I thought it looked very nice on the princess.
The Doctor: But you can't go around wearing copies of bodies!
Romana II: Why not? We're not going back to Atrios, are we?
The Doctor: No.
Romana II: Well then.

Spirit. In every language in all the Realms, surface and Underdark, in every time and every place, the word has a ring of strength and determination.
