Day 03: Favorite quote or one liner from Doctor Who?

Because of course I couldn’t pick just one:

The Doctor: Oooh!! A big flashy lighty thing. I love big flashy lighty things. Big flashy lighty things have got me written all over them. Well, not actually, but give me time. And a crayon.
[from A Christmas Carol]

*or*

The Doctor: She’s a woman and she’s the TARDIS.
Amy: Did you wish really hard?
[from The Doctor’s Wife]

Metaforce: Day 03: Favorite quote or one liner from Doctor Who?

metaforce:

Are all people like this?
Like what?
So much bigger on the inside?

There are so many good quotes from The Doctor’s Wife, but this one takes the cake for me. How long has everyone said this about her? But all she has inside her is a different dimension. All of her corridors and libraries and swimming pools can’t measure up to the mystery that is human (or Time Lord, or TARDIS) consciousness. Just think for a second. Let yourself become aware of that space in the back of your head where you feel like your self is and tell me you don’t feel like you’re bigger on the inside.

30 Days of Summer Break Doctor Who | Day 03: Favorite quote or one liner from Doctor Who? | Big Finish Productions — Zagreus rhyme
Well. The whole Zagreus nursery rhyme, really.

Zagreus sits inside your headZagreus lives among the deadZagreus sees you in your bedAnd eats you when you’re sleeping
Zagreus at the end of daysZagreus lies all other waysZagreus comes when time’s a mazeAnd all of history’s weeping
Zagreus taking time apart.Zagreus fears the hero heart.Zagreus seeks the final part.The reward that he is reaping.
Zagreus sings when all is lostZagreus takes all those he’s crossedZagreus wins and all is costThe hero’s hearts he’s keeping.
Zagreus seeks the hero’s shipZagreus needs the web to ripZagreus sups time at a dripAnd life aside, he’s sweeping.
And he set then his courseTo a scar on the face of CreationWhere the stars lived and died in the churn of one nightWhere the mountains might move in the blink of an eyeAnd decay was the only true constant
And the gate of Zagreus opened before himAnd all of the Antiverse was releaved to himAnd its terrible beauty ached in his hearts
So through them he venturedThere to do battle with Zagreus, the BeastNever resting as long as history is lastingUntil either or both are laid to waste.
Zagreus waits at the end of the worldFor Zagreus is the end of the worldHis time is the end of timeAnd his moment Time’s undoing

Because Zagreus, that’s why.
If you haven’t listened to any Big Finish Doctor Who audios, I highly suggest you do so. Because they are fantastic.

Well. The whole Zagreus nursery rhyme, really.

Zagreus sits inside your head
Zagreus lives among the dead
Zagreus sees you in your bed
And eats you when you’re sleeping

Zagreus at the end of days
Zagreus lies all other ways
Zagreus comes when time’s a maze
And all of history’s weeping

Zagreus taking time apart.
Zagreus fears the hero heart.
Zagreus seeks the final part.
The reward that he is reaping.

Zagreus sings when all is lost
Zagreus takes all those he’s crossed
Zagreus wins and all is cost
The hero’s hearts he’s keeping.

Zagreus seeks the hero’s ship
Zagreus needs the web to rip
Zagreus sups time at a drip
And life aside, he’s sweeping.

And he set then his course
To a scar on the face of Creation
Where the stars lived and died in the churn of one night
Where the mountains might move in the blink of an eye
And decay was the only true constant

And the gate of Zagreus opened before him
And all of the Antiverse was releaved to him
And its terrible beauty ached in his hearts

So through them he ventured
There to do battle with Zagreus, the Beast
Never resting as long as history is lasting
Until either or both are laid to waste.

Zagreus waits at the end of the world
For Zagreus is the end of the world
His time is the end of time
And his moment Time’s undoing

Because Zagreus, that’s why.

Favorite Quote or One Liner from Doctor Who

“gotcha”

I had a hard time choosing a quote for today.  Doctor Who has so many amazing and beautiful quotes and it’s extremely difficult to choose just one but this line always gets me.  I guess “The Beast Below” is when I started ‘falling’ for both the Eleventh Doctor and Amy Pond and I love how this line is also repeated in “The Big Bang” before the Doctor flies the Pandorica into the exploding TARDIS.  I think it says so much about the Doctor and Amy’s relationship and even though it’s just one simple word, it’s just perfect for them.

vazerick:

HELLO, I’M THE DOCTOR.

Does it is need to say ANYTHING else?

HELLO, I’M THE DOCTOR.

That’s how mostly everything start.

HELLO, I’M THE DOCTOR.

That’s how you know your life will change.

HELLO, I’M THE DOCTOR.

That’s how you know you’re safe.

HELLO, I’M THE DOCTOR.

That’s how you know that is time to basicly, run!

Favorite quote or one liner from Doctor Who? 
I know this is kind of an obscure one, but I just love this line. “In 900 years of time and space, I’ve never met anyone who wasn’t important.” To me it just really sums up the Doctor. He’s this amazing force, that could easily start thinking he was better than others, given that he flies around saving the Universe over and over again. Instead, he still cares about everyone, even the (to risk sounding cliche) ‘little people’. The Doctor realizes that every single person is important, and that everyone has a story to tell.
Anyway, for me, that’s the best thing about him.

Tardis In Wonderland: Doctor Who Summer Break Day 3:

OK! I’m catching up.

Favorite quote or one liner?

“When you run with the Doctor, it feels like it will never end, but however hard you try you can’t run forever.”

I always loved River, even from the very first episode. Her speech at the end of Forest of the Dead made me cry, but not because of the episode itself. It made me cry because it was so true.

No matter what you’re running from or who you’re running with, it can’t last forever. There has to be a time when you stop and look back at what you’ve done, and then you realize you’re seeing yourself with a new person’s eyes, and whatever you’ve done has been done. Even if you’re running like the Doctor is- just from his life and himself. He never quite wants to look back and see what he’s become, which was the whole heart of A Good Man Goes To War, I think. For me, I think I’m running from myself as well. I think we all are. We’re running from a regretful past, from an uncertain future, from dreams long gone or broken to pieces, or maybe just from who we thought we were, and now realize that we’re not anymore.

Whether you’re running with a magic man in a blue box or running alone, there comes a point when your time to run is over, and you must turn to face what your circumstances are and who you’ve become. You must face the consequences of running for so long.

Day 03: Favorite quote or one liner from Doctor Who?

Hold my hand, Doctor. Try to see what I see. We’re so lucky  we’re still  alive to see this beautiful world. Look at the sky. It’s  not dark and  black, without character. The black is in fact deep blue.  And over  there, lighter blue. And blue and through the blueness and the   blackness, the wind swirling through the air. And then shining,  burning,  bursting through through the stars. And you see how they throw  their  light. Everywhere we look, complex magic of nature blazes before  our  eyes.

That always brings tears to my eyes. Yes I would have been tempted to go with “Allonsy” or “Trust me, I’m the Doctor.” or “Run”. I was very tempted to use “In 900 years of time and space I’ve never met anyone who wasn’t important before.”. But I’m going with this because it moves everyone. Vincent Van Gogh is one of those characters in history that we all misunderstand. This episode and this quote in particular makes us see the world more clearly from his point of view. I too look up to the sky and see the stars so differently now because of this quote.
I know the Doctor didn’t say this line but it encompasses everything that the Doctor stands for. To him every creature, every planet is something beautiful and wonderful that needs to be looked at with a clear understanding and an open mind. So yes, I’m taking the quote from “Vincent and the Doctor” simply because it is precious in itself.

forlovingandforsayingso:

“Your ancestors have a talent for self-destruction that borders on genius.” - Image of the Fendahl

All happy and shiny, huh? 

The reason I like it is because of it’s sharpness, actually. It kind of says so much about the Doctor and about humans at the same time.

First off, it’s true. We are brilliantly hopeless when it comes to keeping ourselves alive. World wars, nuclear bombs, economic collapse - bring up the apocalypse, and we have fifty different theories that millions buy into. It’s a talent, it’s genius, and the Doctor knows this. And he still tries to help. No matter how much we screw it up, the Doctor wants to help fix it. The Fourth Doctor might not be the most kind and considerate, but he’s one of the most realistic, I think, and I really enjoyed the wit and truth and hilarity of this line. It reminds me of something Douglas Adams might write, and it was a couple of years before he wrote for the show. It’s just beautifully written, and makes sense in the context of explaining human history to Leela, and absolutely my favorite line in Doctor Who.

Also, there’s this:

“People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint - it’s more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly… time-y wimey… stuff.”
