Doctor: Where’d you get those jelly babies?
Romana: Same place you get them.
Romana: Your pocket.

Friendly reminder that the first Doctor once told Doris Lethbridge-Stewart that all of his incarnations turned up to her husband’s funeral.
“‘But you do know, don’t you? What happens to him? How he dies?’
The Doctor smiled. ‘No,’ he said. ‘Not yet. We’ve never met, remember. But when he goes, I’m there for him. At the funeral, I mean, I’m there. All of me, in fact. The ones that knew him best carry him. We don’t usually get on, you know. But this time we make the effort. I think it works because we are all determined not to be the one to cause a fuss… for him.’ He suddenly laughed delightedly. ‘Mind you, ’ he continued, ‘we weren’t so successful at the wake. Two of us ended up almost coming to blows. I think it started over who had had the last sausage roll and suddenly they were fighting over which of them Alastair liked best.’”

The Doctor: One more thing, your name.
Romana: What about my name?
The Doctor: It’s too long. By the time I’ve called out “look out”, what’s your name?
The Doctor: By the time I’ve called that out, you could be dead.
Romana: I may be inexperienced, but I did graduate from the Academy with a triple first.
Doctor: I suppose you think we should be impressed by that, too?
Romana: Well, it’s better than scraping through with 51% at the second attempt.
Doctor: That information is confidential!

THEY ARE SO POLITE WHEN THEY’RE DOING SCIENCE TOGETHER
Anytime you feel sad, just remember that the Third Doctor novel “Deadly Reunion” from 2003 contains this quote:
Doctor: “I’ll have you know, Jo, that in my younger days, my much younger days, I played lead perigosto stick for the Gallifrey Academy Hot Five - until the Faculty closed us down. The Master was on drums.”
I have gotten so much joy just occasionally remembering this tidbit.
Moffat: Makes mini-episode with Paul McGann
Fandom: PAUL MCGANN!!
Fandom: EVERYONE WATCH AND SHARE THIS VIDEO IT’S GOT PAUL MCGANN
Fandom: makes petition to have more Paul McGann
Moffat: Obviously the best thing about that mini-episode wasn’t McGann, and what I’m getting from this is that we should make more mini-episodes that don’t involve Paul McGann.

These ladies win at life. <3
Bonking in BBC dressing rooms is very relevant to my interests
