Particle physicists and priests. What could scare them both?

The Doctor

Only in darkness are we revealed. [...] Goodness is not goodness that seeks advantage. Good is good in the final hour, in the deepest pit, without hope, without witness, without reward. Virtue is only virtue in extremis. This is what *he* believes, and this is the reason above all I love him, my husband. My madman in a box. My Doctor.

When I’m on a date, when a rare and special thing happens in my real life, do not, *do not*, under *any* circumstances, put the pope in my bedroom!

Bill

Penny: That was the pope! Bill, that was the *pope*!
Bill [resigned]: Yeah… I am about to have a *truly* awesome word with someone…

Memories are so much worse in the dark.

The Doctor

Bill: Doctor… I think I’m alive!
The Doctor: Yes, you seem to be under that impression.

They’re not your rescuers. They’re your replacements. The endpoint of capitalism. Bottom line. Where human life has no value at all. We’re fighting an algorithm. A spreadsheet. Like every worker everywhere, we’re fighting the suits!

The Doctor

Suit Assistant

Bill: What if you’re wrong?
The Doctor: Well, then we’ll be horribly murdered! So let’s say I’m right!

Bill: Are you trying to scare us?!
The Doctor: I’m maxing out your adrenaline! Fear keeps you fast! Fast is good!
Bill: Do people ever hit you!?
The Doctor: Well, only when I’m talking.

The universe shows its true face when it asks for help, we show ours by how we respond.

The Doctor

Bill: What’s a fluid link?
Nardole: No idea! But the TARDIS can’t go anywhere without it.
The Doctor: Who told you that?
Nardole: You did!
The Doctor: Exactly [The TARDIS takes off.]

The Doctor: Clara? You asked me what we're going to do, I told ya. We're going to go to hell, or wherever it is people go when they die, if there is anywhere. Whatever it is we're gonna go there and we're gonna find Danny. And if it is in any way possible, we're going to bring him home. Every culture has a concept of an afterlife. I always meant to have a look around, see if I could find one.
Clara: You're going to help me?
The Doctor: Well, why wouldn't I help you?
Clara: Because of what I just did, I just...
The Doctor: You betrayed me. You betrayed our trust, you betrayed our friendship, you betrayed everything that I've ever stood for. You let me down!
Clara: Then why are you helping me?
The Doctor: Why? Do you think that I care for you so little that betraying me would make a difference?
