The following quote from the long-running BBC drama, Doctor Who, was taken from the the episode The Doctor’s Wife, originally airing on May 14, 2011. The conversation is between Idris and the Eleventh Doctor.
Idris: I’ve been looking for a word. A big, complicated word, but so sad. I’ve found it now.
The Doctor: What word?
Idris: Alive. I’m alive!
The Doctor: Alive isn’t sad.
Idris: It’s sad when it’s over. I’ll always be here. But this is when we talked. And now even that has come to an end. There’s something I didn’t get to say to you.
The Doctor: Goodbye?
Idris: No, I just wanted to say… hello. Hello, Doctor. It’s so very, very nice to meet you.
The Doctor: Please. I don’t want you to. Please…
Idris: I love you.
