Day 10: Favorite quote:
I have a few and coincidentally they’re all River Song quotes. But as cross as I can be at times with Steven Moffat, he created one hell of a character and the moments River gets sentimental…are always some of the best writing moments of the show. Plus Alex Kingston is brilliant!!!
River Song: You know when you see a photograph of someone you know, but it’s from years before you knew them. It’s like they’re not quite finished; they’re not done yet. Well, yes, the Doctor’s here. He came when I called just like he always does, but not “my” Doctor. Now, my Doctor, I’ve seen whole armies turn and run away, and he’d just swagger off back to his TARDIS and open the doors with a snap of his fingers. The Doctor in the TARDIS. Next stop: everywhere.
River Song: Funny thing is, this means you’ve always known how I was going to die. All the time we’ve been together, you knew I was coming here. The last time I saw you, the real you — the future you, I mean — you turned up on my doorstep, with a new haircut and a suit. You took me to Darillium to see the singing towers. Oh, what a night that was! The towers sang and you cried. You wouldn’t tell me why, but I suppose you knew it was time. My time. Time to come to the Library. You even gave me your screwdriver; that should’ve been a clue.
River Song: Not those times. Not one line! Don’t you dare! It’s okay. It’s okay, it’s not over for you. You’ll see me again. You’ve got all of that to come. You and me, time and space. You watch us run!
The Doctor: Shout if you get into trouble.
River Song: Don’t worry, I’m quite the screamer. Now there’s a spoiler for you.
Rory Williams: What did you mean, what you said to Amy? There’s a worse day coming for you?
River Song: When I first met the Doctor, a long, long time ago, he knew all about me. Think about that. An impressionable young girl, and suddenly this man just drops out of the sky, and he’s clever, and mad, and wonderful, and knows every last thing about her. Imagine what that does to a girl.
Rory Williams: I don’t really have to.
River Song: Trouble is, it’s all back to front. My past is his future. We’re traveling in opposite directions. Every time we meet, I know him more, he knows me less. I live for the days when I see him, but I know that every time that I do he’ll be one step further away. The day is coming when I’ll look into that man’s eyes, my Doctor, and he won’t have the faintest idea who I am. And I think it’s going to kill me.
River Song: This was exactly you; all this. All of it. You make them so afraid. When you began all those years ago, sailing off to see the universe, did you ever think you’d become this? The man who can turn an army around at the mention of his name: Doctor. The word for healer and wise man throughout the universe. We get that word from you, you know, but if you carry on the way you are, what might that word come to mean? To the people of the Gamma Forests, the word “doctor” means “mighty warrior.” How far you’ve come, and now they’ve taken a child. The child of your best friends, and they’re going to turn her into a weapon, just to bring you down. And all this, my love, in fear of you!
River: I can’t let you die!
The Doctor: I have to die!
River: Shut up! I can’t let you die without knowing you are loved — by so many and so much — and by no one more than me.
The Doctor: River, you and I, we know what this means: we are ground zero of an explosion that will engulf all reality. Billions on billions will suffer and die.
River: I’ll suffer if I have to kill you.
The Doctor: More than every living thing in the universe?
(Thank you wikiquote. I’d hate to have had to type all this out my own!)
