Leela: I can call K9 “he” if I want to. You call the Tardis “she”.
Leela: You do. I’ve heard you. You called it “she” just a moment ago. And another thing, it is quite clear to me than you cannot control this old machine either.
Doctor: Leela, I understand the Tardis perfectly. There’s not one single part of her that I haven’t adjusted or repaired some time or another. Furthermore, I’m in complete and constant control of her.
Doctor: We’re being dragged towards a relative continuum displacement zone.
Leela: A what?
Doctor: A relative continuum displacement…it’s a hole in time.
Leela: Can we get free?
Doctor: That depends on this misunderstood, unmanageable old machine.
Leela: I meant no disrespect! I could have been mistaken!

Litefoot: For example, I would say “One lump or two, Miss Leela?” To which you would reply, “One will suffice, thank you!” Do you follow?
Leela: Supposing I want two?
Litefoot: No, no. One lump for the ladies!
Leela: Then why do you ask me?!

Doctor: I wonder where we are.
Leela: You mean you don’t know?
Doctor: Well, not precisely, no.
Leela: You mean you can’t control this machine?
Doctor: Well of course I can control it! Nine times out of ten. Well, seven times out of ten. Five times…look, nevermind. Let’s see where we are.

The very powerful and the very stupid have one thing in common. They don’t alter their views to fit the facts. They alter the facts to fit their views, which can be uncomfortable if you happen to be one of the facts that needs altering.

Spandrell: I want to know all you can tell me about this Master. And I warn you now, if this is some private feud between you two, do not try to settle it on Gallifrey.
