Quotes from "Time Heist"

Clara: As you can see, I got plans.
The Doctor: Have you?
Clara: Look at me.
The Doctor: Yeah, okay.
Clara: No no no. No. Look at me.
The Doctor: Yep, looking.
Clara: Seriously?

The Doctor: Are you taller?
Clara: Heels.
The Doctor: What, do you have to reach a high shelf?
Clara: Right, got to go, going to be late.
The Doctor: For a shelf?

Guard: Please step away from the door. We do not wish to hurt you before incineration.

The Doctor: There must be a plan.
Clara: What if the plan is we're blowing up the floor for someone else? What if we're not supposed to make it out alive?
The Doctor: Don't be so... pessimistic. It'll affect team morale.
Clara: What, and getting us blown up won't?
The Doctor: Only very, very briefly.

Psi: Still don't understand why you're in charge.
The Doctor: Basically, it's the eyebrows.

The Doctor: Come on then, Team Not Dead.

The Doctor: My personal plan is that a thing will probably happen quite soon.
Saibra: So that's it, that's your plan?
The Doctor: Yup.
Saibra: A thing will happen?
The Doctor: A thing. Probably.

Clara: Do we have time?
The Doctor: Why not? There's no immediate threat. (the alarm goes off) Probably I should stop saying things like that.

Sabira: When you meet the Architect, promise me something. Kill him.

Karabraxos: You'll be dead.
The Doctor: Yeah, you'll be old, we'll get on famously. You'll be old and full of regret for the things you can't change.

The Doctor: Right, that's it. There are so many memories in here. Feast on them, tuck in. Big scarf, bow tie, bit embarrassing. What do you think of the new look? I was hoping for minimalism, but I think I came out with magician.

Clara: I've just realized. I'm going out for another meal now.
The Doctor: Don't worry. Calories consumed on the TARDIS have no lasting effect.
Clara: What? Are you kidding?
The Doctor: Of course I'm kidding. It's a time machine, not a miracle worker.

Quotes from "Listen" (Part 2)

The Doctor: What's going on with your face? it's all eyes. Why are you all eyes? Get them under control.

The Doctor: Last man standing in the universe. Always thought that would be me.
Clara: It's not a competition.
The Doctor: I know it's not a competition. Of course it isn't. Still time, though.

The Doctor: Listen!
Clara: To what?
The Doctor: Nothing. There's nothing to hear. There's nothing anywhere. Not a breath, not a sliver, not a click or a tick. Oh, the clock's stopped. This is the silence... at the end of time.

The Doctor: She's doing that whole eyes thing? It's because her face is so wide. She needs three mirrors. 

Clara: If everybody in the universe is dead, then there's nobody out there.
The Doctor: That's one way of looking at it.
Clara: What's the other?
The Doctor: That's a hell of a lot of ghosts. (the lights dim)
Clara: Do you have your own mood lighting now? Because frankly, the accent' is enough.

Clara: What's that?
The Doctor: What kind of explanation would you like?
Clara: A reassuring one.
The Doctor: Well, the systems are switching to low power. There are temperature differentials all over this ship. It's like... pipes banging when the heating goes off.
Clara: I always thought there was something in the pipes.
The Doctor: Me too.

The Doctor: Who were you having dinner with?
Clara: Are you making conversation?
The Doctor: I thought I would give it a try.

The Doctor: What's that in the mirror of the corner of your eye? What's that footstep following but never passing by? 

The Doctor: Perhaps they're all just waiting, perhaps when we're all dead, Out they'll come a-slithering, from underneath the bed.

Clara: So listen. If you listen to nothing else, listen to this. You're always going to be afraid. Even if you learn to hide it. Fear is like... a companion. A constant companion, always there. But that's okay. Because fear can bring us together. Fear can bring you home.

Quotes from "Listen" (Part 1)

The Doctor: Listen! Question: why do talk out loud when we know we're alone? Conjecture: because we know we're not. Evolution perfects survival skills. There are perfect hunters There is perfect defense. Question: why is there no such thing as perfect hiding? Answer: how would you know? Logically, if evolution were to perfect a creature whose primary skill were to hide from view, how would you know it existed? It could be with us every second and we would never know. How would you detect it? Even sense it? Except in those moments when for no clear reason, you choose to speak aloud. What would such a creature want? What would it do? Well? What would you do?

The Doctor: Why do you have three mirrors? Why don't you just turn your head?

The Doctor: I need you, for a thing.
Clara: I can't.
The Doctor: Oh, of course you can. Come on, you're free. More than usually free, in fact.
Clara: No, it's possible I might get a phone call.
The Doctor: From the date guy? Well, it's too late, you've taken your make-up off.
Clara: No. I haven't. I'm still wearing my make-up.
The Doctor: All right, you probably just missed a bit.

The Doctor: I think everybody at some point in their lives has the exact same nightmare. You wake up, or you think you do, and there's someone in the dark, someone close. Or you think there might be. So you sit up, turn on the light, and the room looks different at night. It ticks, creaks, and breathes. And you tell yourself there's nobody there. Nobody watching, nobody listening, nobody there, naturally. And you very nearly believe it. You really, really try. And then...

Clara: I've never been to Gloucester in my life. And I've never lived in a children's home.
The Doctor: You probably just forgot. Have you seen the size of a human brain? It's hilarious. Little you must be in here somewhere, with your little brain.

The Doctor: Let me tell you about scared. Your heart is beating so hard I can feel it through your hands. There's so much blood and oxygen pumping through your brain, it's like rocket fuel! Right now you could run faster and you can fight harder. You could jump higher then ever in your life. And you are so alert, it's like you can slow down time. What's wrong with scared? Scared is a super-power. It's your super-power. There is danger in this room, and guess what? It's you. Do you feel it? Do you think he feels it? Do you think he's scared? Nah. Loser. Turn your back on him.

The Doctor: The deep and lovely dark. We'd never see the stars without it.

Clara: Gone?
The Doctor: Gone.
Rupert: He took my bedspread.
The Doctor: Ah, the human race. You're never happy, are you?

The Doctor: People don't need to be lied to.
Clara: People don't need to be scared by a big grey-haired stick insect, but here you are. Stay still, shut up. 

Clara: Is that what I look like from the back?
The Doctor: It's fine.
Clara: I was thinking it was good.
The Doctor: Really?

Quotes from "Robot of Sherwood" (Part 2)

Robin Hood: Splendid. In chains.
Clara: Yep.
Robin Hood: Trussed up like oxen. Thanks to your friend.
The Doctor: Shut it, hoodie. I saved your life.
Robin Hood: I had the situation well in hand.
The Doctor: Long-haired ninny versus robot killer knights. I know where I'd put my money.
Robin Hood: If you had not betrayed me, I would have been triumphant.
The Doctor: You would have been a little puff of smoke and ashes.
Robin Hood: Ha!
The Doctor: You would have been floating around in tiny little laughing bits, in people's goblets.

The Doctor: Guards! He's laughing again. You can't keep me locked up with a laughing person.
Robin Hood: I find that quite funny. Do you know, I feel another laugh coming on. A-ha-ha-ha!
The Doctor: Guards, I cannot remain in this cell! Execute me now!

Robin Hood: I'll tell you one thing. I'd last a lot longer than this dessicated man-crow.
The Doctor: Really?
Robin Hood: Really.
The Doctor: Well, you know what? I think you'll find I have a certain genetic advantage.
Clara: It is not a competition about who can die slower.
The Doctor: But it definitely would be me, though, wouldn't it?

Clara: Your plan.
Robin Hood: I am... biding my time.
Clara: Thank you, Prince of Thieves. Last of the Time Lords?
The Doctor: Yes, I have a plan.
Clara: Can you explain your plan without using the word "sonic screwdriver"? Because you might have forgotten the Sheriff of Nottingham has taken your screwdriver. Just saying. It's always the screwdriver.

Robin Hood: Now what?
The Doctor: First the blacksmith's forge.
Robin Hood: So as to remove our chains?
The Doctor: No. So I can knock up an ornamental plant stand. Of course it's so we can get rid of our chains! I don't want to be manacled to you all night. (Robin laughs) Oh, please, please don't do that.
Robin Hood: "Ornamental plant stand."
The Doctor: It's not even that funny.
Robin Hood: You're an amusing jokester.

Sheriff of Nottingham: You are indeed an ingenious fellow, Doctor. But do you really think your peasant's revolt can stop me?
The Doctor: I rather think you're the revolting one around here.

The Doctor: He's a legend!
Robin Hood: Too kind. And this legend has not come alone.
Clara: Hi-ya!

Robin Hood: So, is it true?
The Doctor: Is what true?
Robin Hood: That in the future I'm forgotten as a real man, only as a legend.
The Doctor: I'm afraid it is.
Robin Hood: Good. History is a burden. Stories can make us fly.
The Doctor: I'm still having a little trouble believing yours.
Robin Hood: Why? Is it difficult to credit that a man born into wealth and privilege should find the plight of the oppressed and weak too much to bear?
The Doctor: No...
Robin Hood: Until one night he is moved to steal a TARDIS and fly among the stars fighting the good fight.
