Sarah Jane: The new assistants are getting younger every year.
Rose: I’m not an assistant.

I try never to discuss business with a clear head.
--Jack Harkness (“The Empty Child”)
By the time the Brigadier had made it halfway down the stairs he could see that the battered, blue police box had come together in his hallway. “Wonder which one I’ll get,” he murmured happily. (Justin Richards and Stephen Cole, Shadow in the Glass)
The first thing I learned was not to listen to him [the Doctor].
--Ace (Simon Guerrier, The Settling)
The Doc’s my responsibility.
Harriet Jones: They’re aliens!
The Ninth Doctor: Thanks, we know that.
Slitheen: You’re not human.
Harriet Jones: Who’s not human?
The Doctor: Do you mind a bit of hush?
Harriet Jones: What do you mean? He’s got a Northern accent.
Rose Tyler: Lots of planets have a north.
(“World War Three”)
Splendid fellows... all of you.
--The Brigadier, of the Doctor(s) (Terrance Dicks, “The Five Doctors”)

Rose Tyler: Never stopped him [the Doctor].

I hate computers and refuse to be bullied by them.
--Zoe (“The Invasion”)
“What have you read in Cosmo, K9?”
“This,” he said simply. It was a two-page advert for a new brand of aftershave for men. Instead of the usual brawny hairy chest and denim shirt that one might reasonably expect in such a spread . . . Romana found herself staring at a photo of a model in rather scruffy tweeds and a singed-looking multi-coloured scarf. (Paul Magrs, “Suitors Inc.”)
I’m not dead, then.

Ace: I’ve noticed.
(Ben Aaronvitch, “Remembrance of the Daleks”)
[of the Doctor] He likes to travel with an entourage.

You don’t have a name. Don’t you ever get tired of being called the Doctor? Doctor Who?
--Rose Tyler (“The Empty Child”)
Pacifism only works when everyone feels the same.
--Ian Chesterson (“The Daleks”)
Is that all gibberish or do you really know what you’re talking about?
--The Brigadier (“The Invasion”)
The Doctor: When we were on the river we heard the unearthly babble of inhuman voices, didn't you, Romana?
Professor Chronotis: Oh, undergraduates talking to each other, I expect. I'm trying to have it banned.
(Douglas Adams, “Shada”)
Discussion is for the wise or the helpless and I am neither.
--Leela (David Agnew, “Underworld”)
As long as he does the job, he can wear what face he likes.
--The Brigadier (“The Three Doctors”)
The Ninth Doctor: I’m so glad I met you.
Rose: Me too.
