Quotes from "Dead of Night"

Rex: We both know I can't "kill" you. But you see, the beauty of this miracle is, if I shoot you just right, maybe you'll live in agony for, who knows how long, maybe a thousand years? Now you think about that. Because I've always wondered what part of the brain is memories, or personality, or... what lets you control your own bladder.

Gwen: And food, everybody is panicked by. So I had to go to the petrol station and all they had was crisps.
Esther: Oh, I think you mean "gas station" and "chips." Crisps are called "chips" over here.
Gwen: Thank you, Mrs. Translation.

Jack: You should be in the hospital.
Gwen: Hey, less of the sympathy. He can keep working, the bastard.
Rex: You're gonna keep just going on and on about your kid, huh? Do you want her here with us? Hmm? Maybe she can go play in that corner where the lead paint chips look, uh, extra tasty.

Gwen: And this lemonade--this lemonade is flat.
Esther: It's lemonade, it's supposed to be flat.
Gwen: What, fizzy fizzy lemonade?
Esther: It's fizzy in the UK and flat in the U.S.
Gwen: Hmm, just about sums it up.

Rex: All right, so we've got a mission. First thing we need to do is steal a new car.
Jack: Uh, hm-mm. So who's giving the orders?
Rex: Okay, Torchwood. What do you say?
Jack: We need to steal a new car.

Rex: There's somebody's dry-cleaning back here. And it's my size. I'm taking these. My clothes are stinking. Ladies, avert your eyes. That includes you, World War II.
Jack: See, these new phones aren't bad. The camera's good quality, too.
Rex: I know you didn't just take a picture of me changing my pants.
Gwen: You're changing your pants?
Esther: Pants mean trousers.

Esther: (seeing Gwen knock out a guard) You've done that before.
Gwen: So many times.

Dr. Murphy: No baby is a mistake.
Dr. Vera Juarez: What hospital are you from?
Dr. Murphy: Providence. Dr. Carey Murphy.
Dr. Vera Juarez: Yeah, I was a Catholic too once. I got better.

Jack: My arm is itching.
Gwen: Poor baby.
Jack: I think it's infected.
Gwen: You know you're worse than Rhys. It's itching because it's healing. Now stop it, Jack.

Jilly Kitzinger: Now we have a very important meeting to go to. So you can get cleaned up on the plane to Dulles.
Oswald: Dulles, why?
Jilly Kitzinger: These are the times that make men, Oswald. So it's your choice. Stay where you are, or stand up tall and stride across the skin of the world. Which is it?

Jack: I'm loving this hangover. I knew mortality would make life more intense. Ow!
Rex: Hey, don't touch my pills. I need that for legitimate pain.
Jack: I need them too.
Rex: You weren't impaled.
Jack: You should have seen the other guy. Oh, that face. Rex doesn't like his jokes too gay.
Rex: No, Rex doesn't like men in their 40s acting like they're 20.
Gwen: Oh, we've got a winner. Now hush.

The Day of the Doctor

The 50th anniversary special was so amazing that I had to watch it a second time right after the live screening. Here are just my first thoughts because I guess I have to watch the episode again to write a proper review.
The dynamic between the different Doctors was brilliant and the episode had some surprise appearances as well. There were some nods to classic Doctor Who as well which I really liked, although I haven't seen lots of these Doctors.
I can't say much more than that I totally loved the episode.

What about you?

Don't get too close, it's dark inside

This video of a darker Doctor is from Liisakee.

Quotes from "Rendition"

Gwen: They can't do this! I'm a British citizen on British soil.
Rhys: Yeah? Well, you've been too busy watching aliens. The fact is the Americans have been getting away with this for years.
Rex: Hey hey hey hey, what is that supposed to be? Criticism? What are you gonna do, write your MP? 

Rex: No no no. This operation is mine. I thought of it. It's my idea, my execution.
Lyn Peterfield: You want to piss on the plane? Make that yours too?

Gwen: How's that cut on your arm?
Jack: I'll survive. I'm mortal, not dying. Well, technically I guess I am dying, but slowly.

Gwen: This thing that's happening to the world, this miracle. It must have something to do with you.
Jack: Great, so it's my fault.
Gwen: Can't be a coincidence, Jack.
Rhys: Of course it's not coincidence. Doesn't mean to say it's his fault.
Jack: Rhys, are you defending me?
Rhys: Well, actually it all got switched, didn't it? Nothing to do with Jack if the wires got crossed. Everything mortal becomes immortal. so everything immortal becomes mortal. See? I can be useful.

Rex: It's, uh, Danny, right? Now, listen, I'm not gay, but, uh, I'll let you feel me up if you go get me a vodka.
Danny: Oh, I'm not gay either.
Rex: All right then, well, I'll let you feel her up if you get me a vodka.

Gwen: I started to think it'd be like some kind of fairy tale. It'd be an old woman and you'd just turn up out of the blue, visit my granddaughter. I'd be ancient and you'd be exactly the same. Where did you go, Jack?
Jack: A long way away.
Gwen: And did it help?

(examining Jack's vortex manipulator) 
Rex: Hey, lovebirds. Let me ask you a question. What the hell is this thing? Huh? All it does is go bleep.
Jack: So give it back to me.
Rex: Yeah, I'm sure you'd like that. What does it do, measure how mortal you are?
Jack: Still don't believe me?
Rex: Please.
Jack: The whole world can't die, but I'm the one who's being ridiculous.

Rex: Dr. Juarez, it's your favorite patient here and you have something that I want.
Dr. Vera Juarez: You sound like my ex-husband.
Rex: Really? So does he call wanting drugs and sex?
Dr. Vera Juarez: Yes.
Rex: Good man. But for now I'll just settle for the drugs.

Jack: Hey, can we have something to drink?
Danny: I am not allowed to talk to you.
Jack: Give it to us silently.
Danny: I am not allowed to talk to you.
Lyn Peterfield: They can have water. It's okay, I can supervise it.
Jack: Water? I'm American, too. Can't I contribute to our global cultural hegemony with a nice frosty cola? 

Jilly Kitzinger: I'm needed in Washington. You hold onto my card, sir. Cause there's a reason the churches are empty. People don't want to hear about Heaven. They'd rather hear from a man who has gazed into Hell itself, and that's you. And frankly I think if the Devil himself were to walk this earth, he'd need representation.
Oswald: If the Devil himself walked this earth, he'd surely be working in PR.

Gwen: You went to supervise him, that's what you said. Supervise. Who needs supervising pouring a drink? What did you supervise, exactly?
Lyn Peterfield: So now you're accusing anyone.
Gwen: It's either you or the big gay steward. So that means only you.
Danny: I'm not gay.

Rex: This is the mortal man, the one I was telling you about. Seriously, I think this man can die.
Jack: Now you believe me.
Rex: You shut up.

Danny: Be careful, its my good tie.
Gwen: You're definitely not gay.
Danny: It was one time, okay?

Gwen: That was your last chance.
Lyn Peterfield: Yeah? What are you going to do about it? If you're the best England has to offer, God help you.
Gwen: I'm Welsh. (punches her unconscious)

Rex: Hey, uh, I just remembered, there's one final piece of legislation necessary to make this a full and proper rendition. And according to recent amendments to U.S. Code Section 3184 and Section 3185 in transferring prisoners from air side to land side, the law clearly states that, ah, once they touch down on American soil, they have free and easy access to one very important thing.
Gwen: And what's that?
Rex: Bullshit.

Rex: Now come on and follow me.
Gwen: Hey! You get us arrested, okay? You break up my family, you nearly get Jack killed. Why should we go anywhere with you?
Rex: Because I have a car.

Esther: What the hell was that? Was that Lyn? What the hell is going on?
Gwen: Welcome to Torchwood.

Quotes from "The New World"

Esther: The paramedics, they said he didn't stand a chance.
Dr. Vera Juarez: Looks like someone changed the rules. Miracles got... easy. It's not just Rex who's still alive. It's everyone else.

Oswald: I can guarantee, Mr. Peterssen, that when I talk of lawyers, I mean the team who will be suing the Governor. And I mean the Governor himself, not his office, but the actual man. They will be suing him for wrongful imprisonment. And I promise you that they will sue his ass to high heaven, 'til angels sing songs of him in their laments.

Rex: Do I get better? Do I heal? Do I just hurt for the rest of my life? Because of this thing keeps going, the rest of my life is for forever, right?
Dr. Vera Juarez: Rex, now listen to me. Because you might want to take something into consideration. Maybe you were lucky. You should have died last night. But when this... thing happened, the miracle, it gave me time to fix you. Without the miracle, you'd be dead.
Rex: It's like someone cast a spell on the whole world. But what happens when it stops? What happens to me then? Do I die?

Esther: Oh my God. Is he going to die?
Jack: Don't worry about it. No one dies these days.

Geraint Cooper: There she is. Princess.
Mary Cooper: Look at her, love. She's huge.
Gwen: She's perfectly normal, Mum.
Mary Cooper: But you've been frugal. What you feeding her, lard?
Gwen: Yes, Mum. I'm feeding her lard. Keep telling her that and by the time she's 13, she'll have a complete psychological complex.

Rex: And what the hell is this bridge? The Severn Bridge?
Esther: It connects England to Wales.
Rex: You mean Wales is separate? Uh. It's like the British equivalent of New Jersey.

Gwen: So much for tying him up.
Rhys: I've never tied up a person.
Gwen: Men are good at knots. How many times have you told me that?
Rhys: Yeah, at Christmas.
Rex: Hey. Hey, hey, hey, hey. I had a pole through my chest. I was dead, then I wasn't. I had to pay for this bridge. And now I want to know what the hell is going on, all right? Because I was dead and now I'm not.

Season 5 Episode 13: The Big Bang

The Eleventh Doctor is locked into the Pandorica, Rory has shot Amy and River is trapped inside the exploding Tardis. The universe stopped to exist and only Earth is there in the eye of the exploding Tardis. Somehow the Doctor manages to jump back in time and give Rory instructions how he can get him out of the Pandorica. They leave Amy in the Pandorica and Rory guards her for 2000 years. Young Amelia still remembers the stars and she is able to resurrect Amy. Amy, Rory and the Doctor are reunited but they don't have much time to save the universe before it collapses totally. The Doctor is able to save River and brings her out of the Tardis. When a Dalek shoots the Doctor everything seems to be over but the Doctor is still alive and the last thing he does is piloting the Pandorica into the exploding Tardis. The universe is saved but will someone remember the Doctor?

This season really ended with a bang. The story is sometimes quite complicated with the many time jumps and everything but so many puzzle pieces are put together. Some scenes from the former episodes make more sense now when you know how they are connected and you are really amazed how Steven Moffat has mapped it all out. That's just some brilliant writing he does and I like that everything is somehow connected. The Doctor is able to save the universe and all the people in it but they also forget him because he has to be on the other side of the cracks, so they are able to close. I always wonder if River is the only one who truly remembers the Doctor. Her diary is empty but she has to know who he is or she wouldn't have given it to Amy. Well, we probably never know that for sure. I love the last scenes when Amy finally has a family and she marries Rory. The best thing of course is that she is able to bring the Doctor back cause what would we do without him?

Quotes from "Children of Earth (5)"

Gwen: There's one thing I always meant to ask Jack. Back in the old days. I wanted to know about that Doctor of his. The man who appears out of nowhere and saves the world. Except sometimes he doesn't. All those times in history when there was no sign of him. I wanted to know why not. But I don't need to ask anymore. I know the answer now. Sometimes the Doctor must look at this planet and turn away in shame. I'm recording this in case anyone ever finds it, so you can see. You can see how the world ended.

Colonel Oduya: Mr Dekker, I take it. You managed to survive.
Mr Dekker: I just stood back, sir. A strategy that's worked all my life.

Rhys: Hey, she's pregnant.
Gwen: Oh, thank you. Who's she when she's at home?
PC Andy: Bloody hellfire. Who's the father?
Rhys: Oh, I'm slapping you, yeah.

PC Andy: You know Ianto?
Gwen: Mmm-hmm.
PC Andy: Was he gay?
Gwen: Shut up.
PC Andy: They might not know
Gwen: Well, in which case, do not say.
PC Andy: Well, that proves my point.

Gwen: Couldn't have just chosen a pub, could you?
Rhys: It's bloody freezing. My feet.
Jack: Oh, I miss that, the Welsh complaining. You look good.
Gwen: I look huge.
Rhys: She's bloody gorgeous.

Gwen: They died. And I am sorry, Jack, but you cannot just run away. You cannot run away.
Jack: Oh, yes I can. Just watch me.
