Doctor Who Timeless Quote #4 – The Parting of the Ways
Rose: It’s like…there was this singing.
The Doctor: That’s right. I sang a song and the Daleks ran away.
Rose Tyler. I was going to take you to so many places. Barcelona! Not the city Barcelona, the planet Barcelona. You’d love it, fantastic place! They’ve got dogs with no noses! Imagine how many times a day you end up telling that joke and it’s still funny!
Rose: Then… why can’t we go?
The Doctor: Maybe you will. And maybe I will. But not like this.
Rose: You’re not making sense.
The Doctor: I might never make sense again! I might have two heads, or no head. Imagine me with no head, ha! And don’t say that’s an improvement… But it’s a bit dodgy, this process. You never know what you’re going to end up with.
The Doctor: Stay away!
Rose: Doctor, tell me what’s going on—
The Doctor: I absorbed all the energy of the time vortex, and no one’s meant to do that… Every cell in my body’s dying.
Rose: Can’t you do something?
The Doctor: Yeah. I’m doing it now. Time Lords, we have this little trick. It’s sort of a way of cheating death. Except… it means I’m going to change. And I’m not going to see you again… Not like this. Not with this daft old face. And before I go—
Rose: Don’t say that!
The Doctor: Rose… before I go, I just want to tell you: you were fantastic. Absolutely fantastic. And do you know what? So was I!
