Clara: Will there be cocktails?
The Eleventh Doctor: On the Moon.
Clara: Moon'll do.

The Eleventh Doctor: Kate Lethbridge-Stewart, a word to the wise. As I'm sure your father would have told you, I don't like being picked up.

Kate Stewart: What's our cover story for this?
Osgood: Umm, Derren Brown.
Kate Stewart: Again?
Osgood: Well, we sent him flowers.

The Eleventh Doctor: He was there.
Clara: Who was?
The Eleventh Doctor: Me. The other me. The one I don't talk about.
Clara: I don't understand.
The Eleventh Doctor: I've had many faces, many lives. I don't admit to all of them. There's one life I've tried very hard to forget. He was the Doctor who fought in the Time War, and that was the day he did it. The day I did it. The day he killed them all. The last day of the Time War. The war to end all wars, between my people and the Daleks. And in that battle there was a man with more blood on his hands than any other. A man who would commit a crime that would silence the universe. And that man was me.

Rose Tyler: Now, look at you, stuck between a box and a girl. Story of your life, hey, Doctor?
The War Doctor: You know me?
Rose Tyler: I hear you. All of you. Jangling around in that dusty old head of yours. I chose this face and form especially for you. it's from your past. Or your future. I always get those two mixed up.
The War Doctor: I don't have a future.

The War Doctor: If you have been inside my head, then you know what I've seen. Suffering. Every moment in time and space is burning. It must end. I intend to end it the only way I can.

The Tenth Doctor: Ah, got ya!
Elizabeth I: My love?
The Tenth Doctor: One: the real Elizabeth would never have accepted my marriage proposal. Two: the real Elizabeth would notice when I just casually mentioned having a different face. But then, the real Elizabeth isn't a shapeshifting alien from outer space. And... (takes out device that goes "ding") Ding.
Elizabeth I: What's that?
The Tenth Doctor: It's a machine that goes "ding."

The Tenth Doctor: You're a Zygon.
Elizabeth I: A Zygon?
The Tenth Doctor: Oh, stop it, it's over. A Zygon, yes. Big red rubbery thing, covered in suckers. Surprisingly good kisser.

The Tenth Doctor: Run!
Elizabeth I: What's happening?
The Tenth Doctor: We're being attacked by a shapeshifting alien from outer space formerly disguised as my horse.
Elizabeth I: But what does that mean?
The Tenth Doctor: It means... we're going to need a new horse.

The Tenth Doctor: Oh, very clever. Whatever you've got planned, forget it. I'm the Doctor. I'm nine hundred and four years old. I'm from the planet Gallifrey in the constellation of Kasterborous. I am the Oncoming Storm, the Bringer of Darkness, and you are... basically a rabbit, aren't you? Okay, just carry on. A general warning.

The War Doctor: Even that one?
The Eleventh Doctor: Yes!
The War Doctor: You're my... future selves?
Tenth and Eleventh Doctors: Yes!

Quotes from "The Night of the Doctor"

Eighth Doctor: Where are the rest of the crew?
Cass: Teleported off.
Eighth Doctor: But you're still here.
Cass: I teleported them off.
Eighth Doctor: But why you?
Cass: The rest of them were screaming.

Cass: Where are we going?
Eighth Doctor: Back of the ship.
Cass: Why?
Eighth Doctor: Because the front crashes first. Think it through.

Ohila: We restored you to life, but it's a temporary measure. You have a little under four minutes.

Eighth Doctor: Am I back on Karn? You're the Sisterhood of Karn. Keepers of the Flame of Utter Boredom.

Quotes from "The Name of the Doctor"

Clara: Doctor? Doctor?
The First Doctor: Yes, what is it? What do you want?
Clara: Sorry, but you're about to make a very big mistake. I don't know where I am. It's like I'm breaking into a million pieces and there's only one thing I remember. I have to save the Doctor. He's always looks different. I always know it's him. Sometimes I think I'm everywhere at once, running to save him. Just to save him. Doctor. But he never hears me. Almost never. I blew into this world on a leaf. I'm still blowing. I don't think I'll ever land. I'm Clara Oswald, the Impossible Girl. I was born to save the Doctor.

Clarence: Do you hear the Whisper Men? The Whisper Men are near. If you hear the Whisper Men, then turn away your ear. Do not hear the Whisper Men, whatever else you do. For once you've heard the Whisper Men, they'll stop... and look at you.

Vastra: Strax! Good of you to join us.
Strax: It'd better be important. I was in the middle of destroying some very pleasant primitives.

Clara: Clara Oswald.
River Song: Professor River Song. The Doctor might have mentioned me?
Clara: Oh, yeah. Yeah, of course he has. Professor Song. Sorry, it's just that I never realized you were a woman.
Strax: Well, neither did I. 

Clara: So, how do we get down there? Jump?
The Doctor: Don't be silly. We fall.

Whisper Men: This man must fall as all man must, the fate of all is always dust.

Dr Simeon: Welcome to the final resting place of the cruel tyrant. Of the slaughterer of the ten billion, and the vessel of the final darkness. Welcome... to the tomb of the Doctor.

Jenny Flint: Bloodsoaked?
Madame Vastra: The Doctor has been many things, but never bloodsoaked.
Dr Simeon: Tell that to the leader of the Sycorax. Or Solomon the traitor. Or the Cybermen, or the Daleks. The Doctor lives his life in darker hues, day after day, and he will have other names before the end. The Storm. The Beast. The Valeyard.

Strax: Spread out, boy, combat formation. They are unarmed.
Jenny: So are we!
Strax: Do not divulge our military secrets!

Clara: I don't know where I am. I just know I'm running. Sometimes it's like I've lived a thousand lives in a thousand places. I'm born, I live, I die. And always there's the Doctor. Always I'm running to save the Doctor. Again and again and again. And he hardly ever hears me. But I've always been there. Right from the very beginning. The day he started running.

River: It's hard to leave when you haven't said goodbye.
The Doctor: Then tell me because I don't know. How do I say it?
River: There's only one way I would accept. If you ever loved me, say it like you're going to come back.
The Doctor: See you around, Professor River Song.
River: Until the next time... Doctor.
The Doctor: Don't wait up.

Clara: I don't know where I am. I don't know where I am or where I'm been. I was born to save the Doctor, but the Doctor is safe now. I'm the Impossible Girl and my story is done.

The Doctor: You're my Impossible Girl. I'm sending you something. Not from my past, from yours. Look up. Look. This is you, Clara. Everything you were or will be. Take it. You blew into the world on this leaf. Hold tight. It will take you home.

Clara: I never saw that one. I saw all of you. Eleven faces, all of them you. You're the Eleventh Doctor.
The Doctor: I said he was me. I never said he was the Doctor.
Clara: I don't understand.
The Doctor: My name, my real name. That is not the point. The name I chose is "the Doctor." The name you choose, it's like... like a promise you make. He's the one who broke the promise. Clara! He is my secret.
The Unknown Doctor: What I did, I did without choice.
The Doctor: I know.
The Unknown Doctor: In the name of peace and sanity.
The Doctor: But not in the name of the Doctor.

Quotes from "Nightmare in Silver"

The Doctor: Yeah, um, no. Not actually ready to leave.
Clara: Why not?
The Doctor: I don't know. Reasons.
Clara: What reasons?
The Doctor: Insects. Funny insects. I should add them to my funny insect collection.
Clara: You collect funny insects?
The Doctor: Yeah, I'm starting to. Right now.

The Doctor: Okay, as Imperial Consul, I'm putting Clara in charge. Clara, stay alive until I get back. And don't let anyone blow up this planet.
Clara: Is that something I'm likely to do?
The Doctor: Go to somewhere defensible.
Clara: Where are you going?
The Doctor: I'm getting Angie, finding Artie, and looking for funny insects. Stay alive. And you lot, no blowing up this planet!

Captain: We need to find somewhere defensible.
Clara: Where?
Captain: The Beach. Giant's Cauldron. Natty Longshoe's Comical Castle.
Clara: Real castle? Drawbridge? Moat?
Captain: Yes. But comical.
Clara: We'll go there.

Clara: I trust the Doctor. 
Captain: You think he knows what he's doing?
Clara: I'm not sure I'd go that far.

Clara: Other good news?
The Doctor: Well, other good news, there are a few more repaired and reactivated Cybermen on the way, and the Cyberplanner is installing a patch for the gold thing. No, wait, that--that isn't good news, is it? Umm, so, good news... I have a very good chance of winning my chess match.
Clara: What?
The Doctor: I'll explain later. In a bit of a hurry.

The Doctor: Listen. Right now they have a much better chance of getting out of this situation alive than you do.
Clara: Which one of you said that?
The Doctor: Me. Cyberplanner. Mr. Clever. Now, if you don't mind, I have a chess game to finish, and you have to die pointlessly and very far from home. Toodle-loo.

Mr Webley: Welcome to Webley's World of Wonders, children. Now presenting delights, delicacies, and death.

The Doctor: Ah, hello. Somebody come and untie me.
Clara: Do you think I'm pretty?
The Doctor: No. You're too short and bossy, and your nose is all funny.
Clara: Good enough.

The Doctor: Impossible girl. Mystery wrapped in an enigma squeezed into a skirt that's just a little bit too... tight.
