So what you’re saying is, the whole world revolves around you?
I'll let The Doctor explain, he does it better.

Rose Marion Tyler is a fictional character portrayed by Billie Piper in the long-running British science fiction television series Doctor Who. She was the primary traveling companion of the ninth incarnation of the Doctor until, in The Parting of the Ways, she absorbed the energies of the time vortex, and called herself "the Bad Wolf", defeating the Daleks and their plans to conquer the universe, resurrecting Jack Harkness who had died fighting them, and prompting the Doctor to absorb the fatal energies from her with a kiss, resulting in his need to regenerate into his tenth incarnation. After traveling with him for a while, she realized she had fallen in love with the new Doctor.


The first nineteen years of my life, nothing happened. Nothing at all, not ever. And then I met a man called the Doctor
  • I'll let The Doctor explain, he does it better.
  • Doctor: This is wrong, you should go downstairs.
  • Rose: Tough.
  • Is it just me, or is he a bit... Slitheen?
  • I'll give you a fiver if you can tell me what the hell it is, 'cause I haven't got the foggiest.
  • Planet Earth. This is where I was born. And this is where I died. The first nineteen years of my life, nothing happened. Nothing at all, not ever. And then I met a man called the Doctor. A man who could change his face. And he took me away from home in his magical machine. He showed me the whole of time and space. I thought it would never end. … Well, that's what I thought. But then came the Army of Ghosts. Then came Torchwood and the war. That's when it all ended. This is the story of how I died.
  • Five million Cybermen? Easy. One Doctor? Now you're scared!
  • I made my choice a long time ago, and I'm never gonna leave you.
  • Right, now we're in trouble. And it's only just beginning...



Rose [1.1]

Doctor Who : (Ninth Doctor, 26 March 2005)
Rose: You pulled his arm off.
The Doctor: Yep. Plastic.
Rose: Very clever. Nice trick! Who were they then, students? Is this a student thing or what?
The Doctor: Why would they be students?
Rose: I don't know.
The Doctor: Well, you said it. Why students?
Rose: 'Cos to get that many people dressed up and being silly, they got to be students.
The Doctor: That makes sense. Well done.
Rose: Thanks.
The Doctor: They're not students.
Rose: Whoever they are, when Wilson finds them, he's going to call the police.
The Doctor: Who's Wilson?
Rose: Chief electrician.
The Doctor: Wilson's dead.

Rose: Who are you, then? Who's that lot down there? [The Doctor ignores her] I said, who are they?!
The Doctor: They're made of plastic. Living plastic creatures. They're being controlled by a relay device on the roof. Which would be a great big problem if — [he pulls a bleeping bomb out of his coat] — I didn't have this. So I'm gonna go upstairs and blow it up. And I might well die in the process. But don't worry about me, no. You go home, go on! Go and have your lovely beans on toast. [suddenly serious] Don't tell anyone about this, 'cos if you do, you'll get them killed. [closes the door, then opens it again] I'm the Doctor, by the way. What's your name?
Rose: Rose.
The Doctor: Nice to meet you, Rose. [holds up the bomb, shaking it slightly while grinning.] Run for your life!

Rose: So what you’re saying is, the whole world revolves around you?
The Doctor: Sort of, yeah.
Rose: You’re full of it.
The Doctor: Sort of, yeah.

Rose: If you are an alien, how come you sound like you're from the north?
The Doctor: Lots of planets have a north!
You think you're so impressive.
Is that a technical term, "jiggery pokery"?
Doctor Who (Ninth Doctor, 2 April 2005
The Doctor: Right then, Rose Tyler, you tell me. Where do you want to go? Backwards or forwards in time. It's your choice. What's it going to be?
Rose: Forwards.
The Doctor: How far?
Rose: One hundred years.
The Doctor: [after a few seconds of travel] There you go. Step outside those doors, it's the 22nd century.
Rose: You're kidding.
The Doctor: That's a bit boring, though. Do you want to go further?
Rose: Fine by me!
The Doctor: [after a few more seconds of travel] Ten thousand years in the future. Step outside, it's the year 12005 - the New Roman Empire.
Rose: You think you're so impressive.
The Doctor: I am so impressive!
Rose: You wish!

The Doctor: [opening Rose's phone] Tell you what. With a bit of jiggery pokery—
Rose: Is that a technical term, "jiggery pokery"?
The Doctor: Yeah, I got a first in jiggery pokery, what about you?
Rose: [playing along] Nah, I failed hullabaloo.

Rose: [to Jabe's cutting] Hello. My name's Rose...That's sort of a plant. We might be related. [pauses] I'm talking to a twig.

The Doctor: You think it'll last forever: people and cars and concrete. But it won't. One day it's all gone. Even the sky. [long pause] My planet's gone. It's dead. It burned, like the Earth. It's just rocks and dust. Before its time.
Rose: What happened?
The Doctor: There was a war, and we lost.
Rose: A war with who? [The Doctor doesn't answer, seemingly lost in thought.] What about your people?
The Doctor: I'm a Time Lord. I'm the last of the Time Lords. They're all gone. I'm the only survivor. I'm left travelling on my own, 'cause there's no one else.
Rose: There's me.
The Doctor: You've seen how dangerous it is — do you want to go home?
Rose: I don't know...I want...Oh, can you smell chips?
The Doctor: Yeah. [laughs] Yeah!
Rose: I want chips.
The Doctor: Me too.
Rose: Right then, before you get me back in that box, chips it is. And you can pay.
The Doctor: [pats down his pockets] No money.
Rose: [laughs slightly] What sort of date are you? Come on then, tight wad, chips are on me...we've only got five billion years 'til the shops close!
(9 April 2005)
The Doctor: Christmas. 1860. Happens once, just once and it's gone, it's finished, it'll never happen again.
Rose: Except for you. You can go back and see days that are dead and gone a hundred thousand sunsets ago - No wonder you never stay still.
The Doctor: Not a bad life.
Rose: Better with two.

The Doctor: [seeing Rose in period costume] Blimey!
Rose: [points at him] Don't laugh!
The Doctor: You look beautiful! [Rose smiles widely] ...Considering.
Rose: [smile fades] Considering what?
The Doctor: That you're human.
Rose: I think that's a compliment...

Rose: [to Mr. Sneed, furious] First of all, you drug me, then you kidnap me - and don't think I didn't feel your hands having a quick wander, you dirty old man!
Mr. Sneed: [indignant] I won't be spoken to like this!
Rose: -Then you stuck me in a room full of zombies! And if that ain't enough, you swan off! And leave me to die! So come on, talk!

Gwyneth: Don't tell anyone, but one week, I didn't go and ran on the heath all on my own! [laughs]
Rose: [grins] I used to go down the shops with my mate Shareen. We used to go and look at boys.
Gwyneth: [hesitantly] Well, I don't know much about that, miss. [turns away]
Rose: Come on, times haven't changed that much. I bet you've done the same.
Gwyneth: I don't think so, miss.
Rose: Gwyneth, you can tell me. I bet you've got your eye on someone.
Gwyneth: [smiles shyly] I suppose...There is one lad - the Butcher's boy. He comes by every Tuesday. Such a lovely smile on him.
Rose: Oh! I like a nice smile. Good smile, nice bum.
Gwyneth: [startled] Well, I have never heard the like! [beat, they both laugh]

Gwyneth: And you've come such a long way.
Rose: What makes you think so?
Gwyneth: You're from London, I have seen London in drawings, but never like that. All those people rushing about, half-naked for shame. And the noise, and the metal boxes racing past, and the birds in the sky — no, no they're metal as well. Metal birds with people in them, people are flying. And you, you have flown so far, further than any one. The things you've seen — the Darkness, The Big Bad Wolf!

The Doctor: I love a happy medium!
Rose: I can't believe you just said that.

[Gwyneth chooses to help the Gelth]
Rose: Look, you don't understand what's going on-
Gwyneth: You would say that, miss. Because it's very clear inside your head, that you think I'm stupid.
Rose: [shocked] That's not fair!
Gwyneth: It's true, though. Things might be very different where you're from, but here and now, I know my own mind - And the angels need me.

[As the Gelth attack them]
Rose: We'll go down fighting, yeah?
The Doctor: Yeah.
Rose: Together?
The Doctor: Yeah. [takes her hand] I'm so glad I met you.
Rose: Me too.
[They both grin]
(16 April 2005)
Rose: She slapped you!
The Doctor: Nine hundred years of time and space, and I've never been slapped by someone's mother.
Rose: Your face!
The Doctor: [defensively] It hurt!

Rose: [to the Doctor] Every conversation with you just goes... mental. And there's no one else I can talk to. I've seen all that stuff up there, the size of it, and I can't say a word. Aliens and spaceships and things and... I'm the only person on planet Earth who knows they exist. [a large spaceship crashes into Big Ben and lands in the Thames] Oh, that's just not fair. [the Doctor laughs delightedly and pulls her toward the crash]
(23 April 2005)
Harriet Jones: When they fart — if you'll pardon the word — it doesn't smell like a fart — pardon the word — it's like something else. What is it? It's more like, um...
Rose: Bad breath!
Harriet Jones: That's it!

Rose: Hasn't it got, like, defence codes and things? Can't we just launch a nuclear bomb at them?
Harriet: [shocked] You're a very violent young woman.

[Harriet Jones finds out the Doctor is an alien]
Harriet: But he's got a northern accent!
Rose: Lots of planets have a north.

Dalek [1.6]

(30 April 2005)
Van Statten: Quite a collector, yourself. She's very pretty.
Rose: "She"'s going to smack you if you keep calling her "she".

Rose: [approaching the Dalek] ... Hello. Are you in pain? My name's Rose Tyler. I've got a friend who can help, he's called the Doctor. What's your name?
Dalek: [quietly] Yes.
Rose: What?
Dalek: [eyestalk lifts feebly] I... am in pain. They torture me... but still they fear me. Do you fear me?
Rose: No.
Dalek: [eyestalk drops, as if in resignation] I... am... dying.
Rose: No, we can help--
Dalek: I... welcome death. But... I am glad... that before I die... I have met a human who was not afraid.
Rose: Isn't there anything I can do?
Dalek: My race... is dead. I shall die... alone.

[Rose is cornered by the Dalek, but it finds itself reluctant to kill her]
Rose: Go on then, kill me. [no response] Why are you doing this?!
Dalek: I am armed. I will kill! It is my purpose!
Rose: They're all dead because of you!
Dalek: They are dead because of us!
Rose: And now what? What are you waiting for?
Dalek: I... feel... your fear.
Rose: Well, what do you expect--?
Dalek: [panicked] Daleks do not fear! Must not fear! [shoots, but the blasts hit the walls either side of Rose] You gave me life! What else have you given me?! I am contaminated!!

Rose: I'm begging you, don't kill them. You didn't kill me.
Dalek: But why not? Why are you alive? My function is to kill! What am I? What am I?!

Dalek: Van Statten. You tortured me. Why?
Van Statten: [increasingly nervous as the Dalek gets closer] I wanted to help you, I just... I don't know, I was trying to help. I thought, if we could get through to you, we could mend you... I wanted you better. I'm sorry. I'm so sorry! I swear! I just wanted you to TALK!
Dalek: Then hear me talk now. Exterminate! Exterminate! EXTERMINATE!!!
Rose: DON'T DO IT, DON'T KILL HIM!! [the Dalek's eyestalk turns to her] You don't have to do this anymore. There must be something else, not just killing. What else is there? What do you want?
Dalek: [considers; eyestalk moves back to Van Statten, but then back to Rose] I want... freedom.

[Rose and the Dalek are standing in the upper corridor. The Dalek has opened up its armor, revealing the mutated creature inside.]
The Doctor: Get out of the way! [The Doctor is aiming a hand-held cannon at the Dalek. Rose looks back at him with an appalled look on her face. She doesn't move.] Rose, get out of the way now!
Rose: No. I won't let you do this.
The Doctor: That thing killed hundreds of people!
Rose: It's not the one pointing the gun at me.
The Doctor: I've got to do this. I've got to end it! The Daleks destroyed my home, my people! I've got nothing left!
Rose: Look at it.
[The Dalek lifts a tendril out to feel the sunlight coming out of a hole in the ceiling, which it created itself.]
The Doctor: [confused] What's it doing?
Rose: It's the sunlight, that's all it wants.
The Doctor: [still confused] But it can't.
Rose: It couldn't kill Van Statten, it couldn't kill me. It's changing. What about you, Doctor? What the hell are you changing into?
The Doctor: [struggling with himself] I couldn't....I wasn't.... [Rose stares back at him, an expectant look on her face. The Doctor suddenly looks ashamed of himself] Oh, Rose. They're all dead.

The Doctor: Rose did more than regenerate you. You've absorbed her DNA. You're mutating.
Dalek: Into what?
The Doctor: Something new. I'm sorry.
Rose: Isn't that better?
The Doctor: Not for a Dalek.
Dalek: I can feel so many ideas. So much...darkness. Rose...give me orders. Order me to die.
Rose: I can't do that.
Dalek: This is not life. This is sickness! I shall not be like you. Order my destruction! Obey! Obey! Obey!
Rose: [sad and pitying] Do it.
Dalek: Are you frightened, Rose Tyler?
Rose: [tearful] Yes.
Dalek: So am I.

Rose: Is that the end of it? The Time War?
The Doctor: I'm the only one left. I win. How 'bout that?
Rose: The Dalek survived. Maybe some of your people did, too.
The Doctor: [shakes his head] I'd know. In here. [taps his head] Feels like there's no one.
Rose: Well then...good thing I'm not going anywhere.
The Doctor: Yeah.
(7 May 2005)
[The Doctor and Rose exit the TARDIS first]
The Doctor: So, it's 200,000, it's a spaceship—no, wait a minute—space station, and uh... go try that gate over there. Okay, off you go.
Rose: 200,000? [The Doctor nods, and leans back against the wall as Adam exits the TARDIS]
Adam: Where are we?
Rose: Good question. Let's see. So, um, judging by the architecture, I'd say we're around the year [looks at the Doctor] 200,000? If you listen, engines. We're on some sort of space station. Yeah, definitely a space station. It's a bit warm in here. They could turn the heating down. Tell you what, let's try that gate. Come on.

Rose: [looking out over the Earth] That's...well, I'll let The Doctor explain, he does it better.
The Doctor: The Fourth Great and Bountiful Human Empire. And there it is: planet Earth at its height. Covered with megacities, five moons, population 96 billion. The hub of a galactic domain, stretching across a million planets, a million species. With mankind right in the middle. [Adam faints. The Doctor leans towards Rose, still looking out over the Earth] He's your boyfriend.
Rose: [deadpan] Not anymore.
(14 May 2005)
[first lines]
Rose Tyler: Peter Alan Tyler — my dad. The most wonderful man in the world. Born 15th of September 1954.

The Doctor: [sternly] When we met, I said "travel with me in space"; you said "no". Then I said it was a time machine.
Rose: It wasn't some big plan! I just saw it happening, and I thought... I can stop this.
The Doctor: Oh, I did it again; I picked another stupid ape! I should've known. It's not about showing you the universe, it never is. It's about the universe doing something for you!
Rose: So it's okay when you go to other times, and you save people's lives, but not when it's me saving my dad?!
The Doctor: I know what I'm doing! You don't. Two sets of us being there made that a vulnerable point.
Rose: But he's alive!
The Doctor: My entire planet died! My whole family! Do you think it never occurred to me to go back and save them?
Rose: But it's not like I've changed history! ...Not much. I mean, he's never gonna be a world leader, he's not gonna start World War Three or anything--
The Doctor: Rose, there's a man alive in the world who wasn't alive before. An ordinary man - that's the most important thing in creation! The whole world's different because he's alive!

Pete: Listen, don't worry about him. Couples have rows all the time.
Rose: We're not a couple! Why does everyone think we're a couple?
(21 May 2005)
Rose: What's the emergency?
The Doctor: It's mauve!
Rose: Mauve?
The Doctor: Universally recognized colour for danger.
Rose: What happened to red?
The Doctor: Oh, that's just humans. By everyone else's standards, red's camp. Oh, those misunderstandings, all those Red Alerts, all that dancing.

The Doctor: Know how long you can knock around the universe without bumping into Earth?
Rose: Five days? Or is that just when we're out of milk?
The Doctor: All the species in all the universe and it has to come out of a cow...

Rose: What's the plan, then? Are you going to do a scan for alien tech, or something?
The Doctor: Rose, it hit the middle of London with a very loud "bang!"; I'm going to ask. [shows her the Psychic Paper]
Rose: Doctor John Smith, Ministry of Asteroids.
The Doctor: It's Psychic Paper. It tells you-
Rose: -Whatever you want it to tell me, I remember. Not very Spock, is it? Just asking.
The Doctor: Door, music, people. What do you think?
Rose: I think you should do a scan for alien tech. Give me some Spock, for once! Would it kill you?

Jack: [to Rose while she is caught in his tractor beam.] Oh, and could you switch off your cell phone? No, seriously, it interferes with my instruments.
Rose: [as she turns it off] You know, no one ever believes that.
Jack: Thank you, that's much better.
Rose: [slightly hysterical] Oh yeah, that's a real load off, that is! I'm hanging in the middle of a German air raid with a Union Jack across my chest but, hey, my mobile phone's off!
Jack: [amused] Be with you in a moment! Ready? Hold on tight!
Rose: To what?
Jack: [short pause] Fair point.

[Jack catches Rose in his arms]
Rose: [dazed] Hello.
Jack: Hello.
Rose: Hello. [beat] Sorry, that was "Hello" twice, there. Dull but, y'know, thorough.

[after Rose wakes up]
Jack: Hello.
Rose: Hello.
Jack: [cheekily] Hello.
Rose: [blushes] Let's not start that, again...So, uh, who are you supposed to be, then?
Jack: Captain Jack Harkness. [hands her a bill fold] 1-3-3 squadron, Royal Air Force, American volunteer.
Rose: [looks at the bill fold, and smirks] Liar. This is Psychic Paper; It tells me whatever you what it to tell me.
Jack: How do you know?
Rose: Two things. One, I have a friend who uses this all the time...
Jack: Ah.
Rose: ...And two, you just handed me a piece of paper telling me you're single and you work out.
Jack: Tricky thing, Psychic Paper.
Rose: Yep, can't let your mind wander when you're handing it over. [hands it back to him]
Jack: [reading the Psychic Paper, amused] sort of have a boyfriend called Mickey Smith, but you consider yourself to be "footloose and fancy-free".
Rose: [embarrassed] What?
Jack: Actually, the word you use is..."available"!
Rose: N-no way!
Jack: And another one..."very"!
(28 May 2005)
[after Jack goes to distract the guard]
The Doctor: Relax, he's a 51st century guy; he's just a bit more flexible when it comes to dancing.
Rose: H-how flexible?
The Doctor: Well, by his time, you lot have spread out across half the galaxy.
Rose: Meaning?
The Doctor: [gleefully] So many species, so little time.
Rose: [shocked] What, that what we do when we get out there? That's our mission? We seek new life, and- and...
The Doctor: Dance.

The Doctor: History says there was an explosion here, and who am I to argue with history?
Rose: Usually the first in line! [the pair grin at each other]

Boom Town [1.11]

(4 June 2005)
Rose: I don't believe it! We actually get to go to Raxa... [the Doctor rolls his eyes] Wait a minute! Raxacor...
The Doctor: Raxacoricofallapatorious.
Rose: Raxacorico...
The Doctor: ...fallapatorious.
Rose: Raxacoricofallapatorious. [cheers delightedly]
The Doctor: That's it! [hugs her]
Rose: [ecstatic] I did it!

Rose: [after capturing Margaret Blaine] We've got a prisoner. The police box is really a police box.

Bad Wolf [1.12]

(11 June 2005)
The Doctor:Rose?
Rose: Yes, Doctor?
The Doctor: I'm coming to get you.
I am the Bad Wolf. I create myself. I take the words; I scatter them in time and space … a message to lead myself here.
I can see everything. All that is. All that was. All that ever could be
18 June 2005)
Rose: But what do I do every day, Mum? Get up. Go to work. Catch the bus, eat chips, and go to bed.
Mickey: It's what the rest of us do.
Rose: But I can't.
Mickey: Because you’re better than us?
Rose: No, I didn't mean that. But it was, it was a better life. I don’t mean all the travelling and seeing aliens and spaceships and things. That don't matter. The Doctor showed me a better way of living your life. [to Mickey] You know, he showed you too. [continues] You don't just give up. You don’t just let things happen. You make a stand. You say "no." You have the guts to do what's right when everyone else just runs away, and I just can't...!

Rose: I am the Bad Wolf. I create myself. I take the words; I scatter them in time and space —[the words "BAD WOLF" detach from the Corporation's sign on the opposite wall and fly off] — a message to lead myself here.
The Doctor: Rose, you've got to stop this! You've got to stop this now! [pause] You've got the entire Vortex running through your head! You're gonna burn!
Rose: I want you safe. My Doctor, protected from the false god.

Rose: I can see everything. All that is. All that was. All that ever could be.
The Doctor: [gets up suddenly] That's what I see, all the time. And doesn't it drive you mad?
Rose: My head —
The Doctor: Come here.
Rose: — is killing me.
The Doctor: I think you need a doctor.
[The Doctor kisses Rose, absorbing the Time Vortex. She passes out and he sets her gently on the ground before returning the Vortex to the TARDIS.]

The Doctor: Rose Tyler. I was gonna 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! [laughs] 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! And don't say that's an improvement. But it's a bit dodgy, this process. You never know what you're gonna end up with.
[The Doctor is suddenly wracked by intense pain.]
Rose: Doctor!!
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: Isn't there something you can do?
The Doctor: Yeah, I'm doing it now. See, Time Lords have this little trick, it's sort of a way of cheating death. Except.... it means I'm gonna change. And you're not gonna see me 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 wanna tell you: you were fantastic, absolutely fantastic. And you know what? — So was I!
(25 December 2005)
Rose: [holding a stethoscope to the Doctor's chest] Both working.
Jackie: What do you mean, "both"?
Rose: Well, he's got two hearts.
Jackie: Oh, don't be stupid!
Rose: He has. [gets off the bed]
Jackie: Anything else he's got two of?
Rose: Leave him alone!

The Doctor: Be honest...How do I look?
Rose: Umm... different.
The Doctor: Good different or bad different?
Rose: Just...different.
The Doctor: Am I... ginger?
Rose: No, you're just sort of... brown.
The Doctor: [disappointed] Oh, I wanted to be ginger! I've never been ginger! And you, Rose Tyler! Fat lot of good you were! You gave up on me! [Rose looks annoyed.] Oh, that's rude! Is that the sort of man I am now? Am I rude? Rude and not ginger.
(15 April 2006)
The Doctor: So, the year 5 billion. The Sun expands, the Earth gets roasted.
Rose: That was our first date.
The Doctor: We had chips. [Rose chuckles] So anyway, planet gone. All rocks and dust, but the human race lives on spread out across the stars. Soon as the Earth burns up, ooh, they get all nostalgic, big revival movement. They find this place. Same size as the Earth. Same air, same orbit. Lovely. The call goes out, the humans move in.
Rose: What's the city called?
The Doctor: New New York.
Rose: Oh, come on.
The Doctor: It is! It's the city of New New York! Strictly speaking, it's the fifteenth New York since the original, so that makes it New-New-New-New-New-New-New-New-New-New-New-New-New-New-New New York. [Rose laughs.] What?
Rose: You're so different.
The Doctor: [grins] New-New Doctor.

Cassandra-in-Doctor: Ooh, my. Well this is... different.
Rose: Cassandra?
Cassandra-in-Doctor: Goodness me, I'm a man! Yum! So many parts... and hardly used. [clutches the Doctor's chest] Oh, two hearts! [dancing to the dual heartbeat] Oh baby, I'm beating out a samba!
Rose: Get out of him!
Cassandra-in-Doctor: Oh, he's slim. [turns to Rose] And a little bit foxy! [raises eyebrows] You thought so, too. I've been inside your head, you've been looking. You like it.
(22 April 2006)
The Doctor: [in a Scottish accent] Oh, I'm, I'm dazed and confused. I've been chasing this... this wee-naked child over hill and over dale. Ain't that right, ya... tim'rous beastie?
Rose: Uh, uh... [adopts an extremely terrible Scottish accent] och aye, I've been oot and aboot—
The Doctor: [quietly to Rose, in normal voice] No, don't do that.
Rose: Hoots, mon!
The Doctor: [still quiet] No, really don't. Really.

The Doctor: And I'll tell you something else; we just met Queen Victoria!
Rose Tyler: I know! She was just sitting there!
The Doctor: Like a stamp!
Rose Tyler: I wanted to say [imitating Queen Victoria] "we are not amused". Bet you five quid I can make her say it.
The Doctor: Well if I gambled on that, it'd be an abuse of my privilege as a traveller in time.
Rose Tyler: Ten quid?
The Doctor: Done.

Rose: I'll tell you what, though...
The Doctor: What?
Rose: Werewolf!
The Doctor: [excited] I know! [hugs her] You alright?
Rose: I'm okay, yeah.

Rose Tyler: [about the Koh-i-Noor] How much is that worth?
The Doctor: They say the wages of the entire planet for a whole week.
Rose Tyler: Good thing my mum's not here, or she'd be fighting the wolf off with her bare hands for that thing.
The Doctor: She'd win.

Queen Victoria: You may think on this, also; that I am not amused.
Rose: Yes!
Now, this is really seeing the future. You just leave us behind. Is that what you're gonna do to me?
(29 April 2006)
Sarah Jane: I saw things you wouldn't believe!
Rose: Try me.
Sarah Jane: Mummies.
Rose: I've met ghosts.
Sarah Jane: Robots. Lots of robots.
Rose: Slitheen. In Downing Street.
Sarah Jane: Daleks!
Rose: [smugly]' Met the Emperor.
Sarah Jane: Anti-matter monsters!
Rose: Gas-mask zombies!
Sarah Jane: Real-living dinosaurs!
Rose: Real-living werewolf!
Sarah Jane: The Loch Ness Monster!
Rose: [stunned] Seriously?

(Sarah Jane claps her hand over her mouth)

Rose: I thought you and me were — Well, I obviously got it wrong. I've been to the year 5 billion, right, but this... Now, this is really seeing the future. You just leave us behind. Is that what you're gonna do to me?
The Doctor: No. Not to you.
Rose: But Sarah Jane. You were that close to her once, and now you never even mention her. Why not?
The Doctor: I don't age. I regenerate. But humans decay; you wither and you die. Imagine watching that happen to someone that you — [he breaks off]
Rose: What, Doctor?
The Doctor: You can spend the rest of your life with me, but I can't spend the rest of mine with you. I have to live on. Alone. That's the curse of the Time Lords.

Rose: With you, did he do that thing where he'd explain something at, like, ninety miles per hour, and you'd go; "What?" And he'd look at you like you'd just dribbled on his shirt?
Sarah Jane: All the time! [Rose giggles] Does he still stroke bits of the TARDIS?
Rose: [laughs] Yes! He does! I'm like, "Do you two want be alone"?
Rose and Sarah Jane: HA HA HAAA HA HA HA HAAA HA HA!!!
[The Doctor enters, oblivous]
The Doctor: How's it going? [Rose and Sarah Jane laugh at him] What? Listen, I need to figure out what's programmed inside these- [they continue laughing] What? [suddenly self-conscious] Stop it!
(6 May 2006)
Rose: Oh, here's trouble. What you been up to?
The Doctor: Oh, this and that. Became the imaginary friend of a future French aristocrat, picked a fight with a clockwork man... [A horse whinnies off screen] Oh, and I met a horse.
Mickey: What's a horse doing on a spaceship?
The Doctor: Mickey, what's pre-revolutionary France doing on a spaceship? Get a little perspective!
(13 May 2006)
[The Doctor and Rose are on a hillside outside the Tyler estate. A limo passes them.]
The Doctor: They've got visitors.
Rose: February the 1st. Mum's birthday. Even in a parallel universe, she still loves a party.
The Doctor: Well, given Pete Tyler's guest list, I wouldn't mind a look. And there is one guaranteed way of getting inside.
Rose: Psychic paper!
The Doctor: Who do you want to be?
[The scene cuts to the Doctor and Rose dressed as waiters carrying trays out of the kitchen.]
Rose: We could have been anyone.
The Doctor: [looking at her] It got us in, didn't it?
Rose: You're in charge of the psychic paper. We could have been guests, celebrities, Sir Doctor, Dame Rose. We end up serving. I had enough of this back home.
The Doctor: If you want to know what's going on, work in the kitchen. [gestures towards one of the guests] According to Lucy, that man over there...
Rose: Who is Lucy?
The Doctor: She's carrying the salmon pinwheels. [nods towards a waitress on the other side of the room]
Rose: Oh, that's Lucy, isn't it?
The Doctor: Yeah. Lucy says that that is the President of Great Britain.
Rose: What, there's a "President", not a "Prime Minister"?
The Doctor: Seems so.
Rose: Or maybe Lucy's just a bit thick.

Rose: [about the Cybermen] They're people?!
The Doctor: They were, until they had all their humanity taken away. That's a living brain jammed inside a cybernetic body, with a heart of steel. All emotions removed.
Rose: Why no emotions?
The Doctor: Because it hurts.
(20 May 2006)
The Doctor: I'm the Doctor, by the way, if anyone's interested.
Rose: And I'm Rose.

[after discovering the parallel world's Jackie has been converted]
Rose: They killed her. They just took her and killed her.
Pete: Maybe there's a chance, I don't know... Maybe we can reverse it.
Rose: There's nothing we can do.
Pete: But if... If she remembers... Where is she? Which one was it? Which one was her?!
Rose: [sadly] They all look the same.
(27 May 2006)
Rose: Where're we off to?
The Doctor: Ed Sullivan TV studios. Elvis did "Hound Dog" on one of the shows, there were loads of complaints. Bit of luck, we'll just catch it.
Rose: And that would be TV studios in... what, New York?
The Doctor: That's the one.
[A red double-decker bus goes by. The Doctor hits the brakes.]
Rose: Ha ha! Dig that New York vibe.
The Doctor: Well, this could still be New York. I mean, this looks very New York to me. Sort of a London-y New York, mind you, but...

The Doctor: Lost 'em! How'd they get away from us?!
Rose: Surprised they didn't turn back and arrest you for reckless driving! Have you actually passed your test?
The Doctor: Men in black? Vanishing police cars? This is Churchill's England, not Stalin's Russia!
Rose: "Monsters", that boy said...maybe we should go and ask the neighbours.
The Doctor: That's what I like about you; the domestic approach.
Rose: Thank you! [pause] Hold on, was that an insult?

Eddie Connolly: You'll be proud of us, sir. We'll have Union Jacks left, right, and centre.
Rose: Excuse me, Mr. Connolly, hang on a minute. "Union Jacks"?
Eddie: Yes, that's right, isn't it?
Rose: That's the Union Flag. It's the Union Jack only when it's flown at sea.
Eddie: [reddening] Oh. Oh, I'm sorry. I... I do apologise.
Rose: Well, don't get it wrong again. There's a good man, now get to it!
The Doctor: Right then! Nice and comfy, at Her Majesty's leisure. [mutters to Rose] Union Flag?
Rose: Mum went out with a sailor.
The Doctor: Oh, I bet she did...
(3 June 2006)
The Doctor: [talking about the TARDIS] I don’t know what is wrong with her, she's sort of... queasy, indigestion... like she didn't want to land.
Rose: [deadpan] Well if you think that's gonna be trouble, we can always get back inside and go somewhere else.
[Pause. The Doctor and Rose then start laughing.]

The Doctor: I've trapped you here.
Rose: [sarcastically] Oh, don't worry about me. [There is a rumble overhead.] Okay... we're under a black hole... on a planet which shouldn't exist, with no way out. Right, I've changed my mind—start worrying about me.

Rose: I want that spacesuit back in one piece, you got that?
The Doctor: [playfully] Yes sir. [puts on helmet]
Rose: It's funny, because people back home think that space travel's going to be all whizzing about and teleports and anti gravity...But it's not, is it? It's tough.
The Doctor: I'll see you later.
Rose: [smiles] Not if I see you first. [kisses the front of the Doctor's helmet]
(10 June 2006)
Rose: It doesn't make sense; We escaped, but there are a thousand ways it could've killed us. It could've ripped out the air, or, I dunno, burnt us, or anything...But it let us go. Why? [pause, realises] Unless it wanted us to escape...
Toby: [irritated] Hey, Rose, do us a favour: Shut up.

Toby: [possessed by the Beast for the last time] I am the rage, and the bile, and the ferocity! I am the Prince, and the fool, and the agony! I am the sin, and the fire, and the darkness! [opens his mouth and breathes fire] I shall never die! The thought of me is forever: in the bleeding hearts of men, in their vanity, obsession, and lust! Nothing shall ever destroy me! NOTHING!
Rose: [aiming a Boltgun] Go to hell.
[Rose fires at the ship viewscreen, causing it to suck Toby (and the Beast) out of the ship and into outer space.]
(17 June 2006)
The Doctor: [after Rose throws a bucket at the Hoix] Wrong one! You made it worse!
Rose: You said blue!
The Doctor: I said not blue!

The Doctor: [to Elton] Someone wants a word with you.
Rose: [angrily] You upset my mum!
Elton: [glances at the Abzorbaloff] Great big absorbing creature from outer space, and you're having a go at me?
Rose: No one upsets my mum.

Rose: [about the Abzorbaloff] Is it me, or is he a bit... Slitheen?

Fear Her [2.11]

(24 June 2006)
Rose: Easy for you to say, you don't have kids.
The Doctor: I was a dad once.
Rose: [surprised] What did you say?

Rose: [sees a cat] Aren't you a beautiful boy?
The Doctor: Thanks! I've been experimenting with back combing- [realizes she isn't talking to him] Oh.
Rose: [pets the cat] I used to have one just like you... [notices the Doctor frowning] What?
The Doctor: No, I'm not really a cat person. Once you've been threatened by one in a nun's wimple, it kind of takes the joy out of it.

Rose: You said it was in the street.
The Doctor: Probably.
Rose: The girl.
The Doctor: Of course! [beat] What girl?
Rose: Something about her gave me the creeps. Even her own mum looked scared of her.
The Doctor: [playfully] Are you deducing?
Rose: I think I am.
The Doctor: Copper's hunch?
Rose: Permission to follow it up, Sarge?

Kel: You just took a council axe from a council van, and now you're digging up a council road! I'm reporting you to the council! [Rose finds the Isolus pod]
Rose: It went for the hottest thing in the street: your tar!
Kel: [surprised and confused] What is it?
Rose: It's a spaceship! Not a council spaceship, I'm afraid.

Rose: You know what, they keep trying to split us up, but they never, ever will.
The Doctor: Never say never, ever.
Rose: Nah, we'll always be all right, you and me. [she pauses] Don't you think? Doctor?
The Doctor: [looking up in the sky] Something in the air. Something's coming. A storm's approaching...
(1 July 2006)
The Doctor: How long are you going to stay with me?
Rose: Forever.

Doomsday [2.13]

(1 July 2006)
Mickey: I could transport out of here, but it only carries one and I'm not leaving you.
Rose: You'd follow me anywhere. What did I do to you all those years ago?
Mickey: Guess I'm just stupid.
Rose: [pause] You're the bravest man I've ever met.
Mickey: What about the Doctor?
Rose: [rolls eyes] Oh, all right...bravest human. [Mickey smirks]

Dalek Sec: Which of you is least important?
Rose: What's that supposed to mean?
Dalek Sec: Which of you is least important?
Rose: No, we don't work like that. None of us.

[Rose reacts with delight at seeing the Doctor on the Dalek viewscreen.]
Dalek Sec: The female's heartbeat has increased.
Mickey: Yeah, tell me about it.
Dalek Sec: [to Rose] Identify him.
Rose: All right, then. If you really want to know,... that's the Doctor.
[The Daleks back away.]
Rose: Five million Cybermen, easy. One Doctor? Now you're scared.

Rose: If you...escaped the Time War, don't you want to know what happened? What happened to the Emperor?
Dalek Sec: The Emperor suvived?!
Rose: Until he met me. 'Cause if these are gonna be my last words, then you're gonna listen; I met the Emperor. And I took the time vortex and poured into his head, and turned him to dust. Did you get that? The god of all Daleks...and I destroyed him. Ha!
Dalek Sec: (furiously) YOU WILL BE EXTERMINATED!

The Doctor: Once the breach collapses, that's it. You will never be able to see her again. Your own mother!
Rose: I made my choice a long time ago, and I'm never gonna leave you.

[The Doctor appears in from of Rose as a translucent hologram]
Rose: Where are you?
The Doctor: Inside the TARDIS. There's one tiny little gap in the universe left, just about to close. And it takes a lot of power to send this projection — I'm in orbit around a supernova. [smiling weakly] I'm burning up a sun just to say goodbye.
Rose: You look like a ghost.
The Doctor: Hold on... [activates the sonic screwdriver on something out of sight, and his image solidifies.]
Rose: Can I t—
[Rose holds out her hand to his face, but he interrupts her before she can.]
The Doctor: I'm still just an image. No touch.
Rose: Can't you come through properly?
The Doctor: The whole thing would fracture. The two universes would collapse.
Rose: So?
[Both laugh shakily.]
The Doctor: [looking around] Where are we? Where did the gap come out?
Rose: We're in Norway.
The Doctor: Norway, right.
Rose: About fifty miles out of Bergen. It's called "Dålig Ulv Stranden".
The Doctor: [confused] "Dalek"?
Rose: "Dålig". It's Norwegian for bad. This translates as "Bad Wolf Bay". How long have we got?
The Doctor: [checks his watch] About two minutes.
Rose: ...I can't think of what to say.
[The Doctor smiles, then glances over at Jackie, Pete, and Mickey who are waiting by the jeep]
The Doctor: You still got Mr. Mickey, then?
Rose: Oh there's five of us now. Mum, Dad, Mickey... and the baby.
The Doctor: [shocked smile] You're not—?
Rose: No. It's Mum. She's three months gone. More Tylers on the way.
The Doctor: And what about you? Are you—?
Rose: Yeah, I'm... I'm back working in the shop.
The Doctor: Oh, good for you.
Rose: Shut up. No, I'm not. Torchwood on this earth's open for business. Think I know a thing or two about aliens.
The Doctor: [smiles] Rose Tyler, defender of the Earth... You're dead. Officially, back home. So many people died that day and you've gone missing. You're on the list of the dead. [pause] Here you are, living your life day after day. The one adventure I can never have.
Rose: Am I ever going to see you again?
The Doctor: You can't.
Rose: What are you going to do?
The Doctor: Back to the TARDIS. Same old life, last of the Time Lords.
Rose: On your own?
The Doctor: [nods]
Rose: [crying] I... I love you.
The Doctor: Quite right, too. [Pause] And I suppose, if it's my last chance to say it...Rose Tyler-
[The transmission cuts, and the Doctor fades away from Rose. She runs crying into Jackie's arms]

Turn Left [4.11]

(21 June 2008)
[the sky is engulfed in flames]
Donna: And that was...?
Rose: That was the Torchwood team. Gwen Cooper, Ianto Jones...They gave their lives. And Captain Jack Harkness was transported to the Sontaran home world...There's no one left.

Donna: [talking about the Doctor] But if he was so special, what was he doing with me?
Rose: He thought you were brilliant.
Donna: Don't be stupid.
Rose: But you are. It just took the Doctor to show you that, simply by being with him. He did the same to everyone he touches.

Rose: Just remember: when you get to the junction, change the car's direction by one minute past ten.
Donna: How do I do that?
Rose: That's up to you.
Donna: Well, I just have to run up to myself and have a good argument!
Rose: I'd like to see that!
(28 June 2008)
Drunken Man: The end of the word, darlin'! End of the stinkin' world!
Rose: Have one on me, mate.

Rose: [walks into an electronics store when two people are looting it] Right! You two! You can put that stuff down, or run for your lives. [powers up her big gun] Do you like my gun?

Rose: I've got you. I missed you. Look, it's me, Doctor!
The Doctor: [weakened and in pain] Rose! Long time, no see!
Rose: [crying] Yeah, well...been busy, you know? [The Doctor gasps in pain and begins to lose consciousness.] Don't die! Oh my God, don't die! Oh my God, don't die!
(5 July 2008)
Rose: Basically, we've been building this, um... This... This time travel machine, this er, dimension cannon, so I could... Well... So I could...
The Doctor: [bemused] What?
Rose: So I could come back. [The Doctor grins. Rose does the same] Shut up.

[Rose is impressed by Martha Jones]
Rose: She's good!
Martha: [notices Rose] Who that?
Rose: Oh, my name's Rose. Rose Tyler.
Martha: [softly] Oh my god...he found you!

Rose: Hold on, this is the parallel universe, right?
The Doctor: You're back home.
Donna: And the walls of the world are closing again, now that the reality bomb never happened. It's dimensional retro-closure. See, I really get that stuff now.
Rose: No, but... I've spent all that time trying to find you, I'm not going back now!
The Doctor: But you've got to. Because we saved the universe, but at a cost. [looking at his Metacrisis duplicate] And the cost is him. He destroyed the Daleks, he committed genocide. He's too dangerous to be left on his own.
Metacrisis Doctor: You made me.
The Doctor: Exactly. You were born in battle, full of blood and anger and revenge. [to Rose] Remind you of someone? That's me, when we first met. And you made me better. Now you can do the same for him.
Rose: But he's not you!
The Doctor: He needs you. That's very me.
Donna: But it's better than that, though. Don't you see what he's trying to give you? Tell her, go on.
Metacrisis Doctor: I look like him and I think like him, same memory, same thoughts, same everything... except I've only got one heart.
Rose: Which means?
Metacrisis Doctor: I'm part human. Specifically, the aging part. I'll grow old and never regenerate. I've only got one life, Rose Tyler. I could spend it with you, if you want.
Rose: [in disbelief] Y-You'll grow old at the same time as me.
Metacrisis Doctor: Together.
The Doctor: We've got to go. This reality is sealing itself off, forever.
Rose: But... it's still not right. 'Cause the Doctor is... still you!
The Doctor: And I'm him.
Rose: All right, both of you, answer me this: When I last stood on this beach, on the worst day of my life... what was the last thing you said to me? Go on, say it.
The Doctor: I said "Rose Tyler".
Rose: Yeah? And how was that sentence gonna end?
The Doctor: Does it need saying?
Rose: And you, Doctor, what was the end of that sentence?
[The Metacrisis Doctor whispers something in her ear, presumably "I love you". Rose pauses briefly, then kisses him, allowing Donna and the original Doctor to slip away unnoticed into the TARDIS. As Rose realises, she turns to watch them go sadly. The Metacrisis Doctor stands beside her and they hold hands.]
(1 January 2010)
Rose: I'm late now. I've missed it. It's midnight. Mickey's going to be calling me everything. This is your fault!
Jackie: No, it's not! It's Jimbo! He said he was going to give us a lift, then he said his axle broke. I can't help it!
Rose: Get rid of him, Mum. He's useless!
Jackie: Listen to you, with a mechanic! Be fair, though; My time of life, I'm not going to do much better.
Rose: Don't be like that. You never know, there could be someone out there.
Jackie: Maybe, one day... Happy New Year.
Rose: Happy New Year! Don't stay out all night!
Jackie: Try and stop me!
[They walk in opposite directions. Rose turns when she hears the Doctor grunt with pain.]
Rose: You alright, mate? Too much to drink?
The Doctor: Something like that, yeah.
Rose: Maybe it's time you went home.
The Doctor: Yeah.
Rose: Anyway, happy New Year.
The Doctor: And you. [Rose turns away] What year is this?
Rose: Blimey, how much have you had? [the Doctor shrugs] 2005, January 1st.
The Doctor: 2005? [Rose nods] Tell you what...I bet you're going to have a really great year.
(23 November 2013)
The Moment, a Time Lord doomsday device first mentioned in The End of Time, is stolen by the War Doctor in The Day of the Doctor in order to put a final end to the Time War. The Moment, however, is sentient and possesses a conscience. Its interface manifests in the form of the Bad Wolf entity, i.e. as what Rose Tyler briefly became after staring into the time vortex in The Parting of the Ways. It does this to challenge the War Doctor, questioning whether mass killing is the best option and showing him the potential costs of his actions.
[To keep the War Doctor from tampering with its box, The Moment causes the machine to heat up]
The War Doctor: Ow!
The Moment: What's wrong?
The War Doctor: The interface. It's hot.
The Moment: Well, I do my best.
[The War Doctor pauses, and stares at the Moment]
The War Doctor: [realizing] You're the interface?
The Moment: They must have told you The Moment had a conscience. [waves] Hello.

The Moment: Oh, look at you. Stuck between a girl and a box. Story of your life, eh, Doctor?

The Moment: I chose this face and form (of Rose Tyler) especially for you. It's from your past. [frowns] Possibly your future. I always get those two mixed up...

The Moment: I think I'm called....Rose Tyler., I'm sorry. In this form, I'm called...Bad Wolf. [Her eyes glow.] [speaking softly, but with a hint of menace] Are you afraid of the big bad wolf, Doctor?

The War Doctor: I've been fighting this war for a long time. I've lost the right to be the Doctor.
The Moment: Then you're the one to save us all.
The War Doctor: Yes.
The Moment: If I ever develop an ego, you've got the job.

[The War Doctor deciding whether to destroy Gallifrey or not]
The War Doctor: If you have been inside my head, then you know what I have seen. The suffering. Every moment in time and space is burning. It must end, and I intend to end it the only way I can.
The Moment: And you're going to use me to end it by killing them all, Daleks and Time Lords alike. I could, but there will be consequences for you.
The War Doctor: I have no desire to survive this.
The Moment: Then that's your punishment. If you do this — if you kill them all — then that's the consequence. You... live. Gallifrey... you're going to burn it... and all those Daleks with it, but all those children too. How many children on Gallifrey right now?
The War Doctor: I don't know.
The Moment: One day, you will count them. One terrible night.

[The War Doctor stands before the Moment machine, which has configured into a device with a plunger and a big red button.]
The Moment: Well, you wanted a big red button. One big bang. No more Time Lords. No more Daleks. Are you sure?
The War Doctor: I was sure when I came in here. There is no other way.
The Moment: You've seen the men you will become.
The War Doctor: Those men. Extraordinary.
The Moment: They were you.
The War Doctor: No. They are the Doctor.
The Moment: You're the Doctor, too.
The War Doctor: No. Great men are forged in fire. It is the privilege of lesser men to light the flame. [softly] Whatever the cost. [His hand hovers over the red button]

The Moment: You know the sound the TARDIS makes? That wheezing, groaning... That sound brings hope wherever it goes.
The War Doctor: Yes...yes, I like to think it does.
The Moment: To anyone who hears it, Doctor. Anyone. However lost. [The TARDIS sound begins.] Even you.

The War Doctor: She didn't just show me any old future; she showed me exactly the future I needed to see!
The Moment: [grins] Now you're getting it.
The Eleventh Doctor: [confused] Eh, who did?
The War Doctor: Oh, Bad Wolf girl, I could kiss you!
[The Tenth and Eleventh Doctors stare at him in shock and disbelief]
The Moment: [amused] Yeah, that's gonna happen.

Quotes about Rose Tyler

The Doctor: I killed her.
Van Statten: I'm sorry.
The Doctor: I said I'd protect her. She was only here because of me, and you're sorry? I could have killed that Dalek in its cell. But you stopped me.
Van Statten: It was the prize of my collection!
The Doctor: [outraged] Your collection?! Well, was it worth it?! Worth all those men's deaths, worth Rose?! Let me tell you something, van Statten: mankind goes into space to explore, to be part of something greater!
Van Statten: Exactly! I wanted to touch the stars!
The Doctor: [disgusted] You just want to drag the stars down and stick them underground, underneath tons of sand and dirt, and label them! You're about as far from the stars as you can get! [Van Statten looks back at him, startled. The Doctor looks away, forlorn] And you took her down with you. She was nineteen years old.
  • Dalek [1.6] (30 April 2005)

The Doctor: They did what?
D.I. Bishop: I'm sorry?
The Doctor: [seething] They left her where?
D.I Bishop: [ataken back] the street.
The Doctor: [deceptively calm] In the street. They left her in the street. They took her face and just chucked her out in the street. And as a result, that makes things...simple. Very, very simple. [takes off his glasses] Do you know why?
D.I. Bishop: No?
The Doctor: [enraged] Because now, Detective Inspector Bishop, there is no power on this earth that can stop me! Come on!

  • I've seen fake gods and bad gods and demigods and would-be gods; out of all that, out of that whole pantheon, if I believe in one thing... just one thing... I believe in her.

Lilith: Oh, but look; there's still one word with the power that aches.
The Doctor: The naming won't work on me!
Lilith: But your heart grows cold. The north winds blows, and carries down the distant...Rose.
The Doctor: Oh, big mistake, 'cause that name keeps me fighting!

Martha: When you say "last time", was that you and Rose?
The Doctor: [pauses, somewhat taken aback] Um, yeah. Yeah, it was, yeah.
Martha: [looking put out] You're taking me to the same planets that you took her?
The Doctor: [surprised, oblivious] What's wrong with that?
Martha: [disappointed, upset] Nothing! [starts to stalk away] Just...ever heard of the word "rebound"?

  • She's just an invention. Rose, I call her. Rose. She seems to disappear later on.
    • The Doctor as John Smith, in Human Nature [3.8] (26 May 2007)

  • Oh, she was blonde! Oh, what a surprise!
    • Martha Jones, in Utopia [3.11] (16 June 2007)

  • In the US remake of Broadchurch, Gracepoint, both of which star David Tennant, an enquiry sheet on his desk has the name R. Tyler written on it, enquiring about a wolf (a reference to Bad Wolf).
  • Rose was a girlfriend, really. I know we don’t say it.
