Rose Tyler: Is that why we're here? - I mean, is that what you do? Jump in at the last minute and save the Earth?
The Doctor: I'm not saving it. Time's up.
Rose Tyler: But what about the people?
The Doctor: It's empty. They've all gone. No one left.
Rose Tyler: [silent; looks at the Earth] Just me then.
The Steward: Who the hell are you?
Rose Tyler: They all speak English.
The Doctor: No you just hear English. Its the gift of the TARDIS - the telepathic field gets inside your brain - translates.
Rose Tyler: Its inside my brain?
The Doctor: Well, in a good way!
The Doctor: Now, first things first. Be honest, how do I look?
Rose Tyler: Uh... different.
The Doctor: Am I... Ginger?
Rose: No, you're just sort of... brown.
The Doctor: Aww, I wanted to be ginger. I've never been ginger. And you, Rose Tyler, fat lot of good you were. You gave up on me. Ooh, that was rude. Is that the kind of man I am now? Am I rude? Rude and not ginger?

Young Reinette: Monsieur, be careful!
The Doctor: It's just a nightmare, Reinette, don't worry, everyone has nightmares. Even monsters under the bed have nightmares!

The Doctor: Me!

Dalek Jast: Request information. What is your opinion of Dalek Sec?

[Dalek Caan checks that no one is watching]
Dalek Caan: Affirmative.
The Doctor: Daleks are bad enough at any time, but right now they're vulnerable. And that makes them more dangerous than ever.
Donna Noble: Have you been here before, then?
The Doctor: Mmh, ages ago. Before you ask, that fire had nothing to do with me. Well, a little bit.
Donna Noble: Hold on a minute.
[points at a sign]
Donna Noble: That sign over there is in English. Are you having me on? Are we in Epcot? The Doctor: No, no, no, no. It's the TARDIS translation circuits, makes it look like English. Speech as well. You're talking Latin right now.
Donna Noble: Seriously?
The Doctor: Uh-huh.
Donna Noble: I just said seriously in Latin?
The Doctor: Oh yeah.
