In July, the Ponds go about their normal everyday lives. When Rory points out that they have two lives, one with the Doctor and one without, Amy wonders what they should do and Rory says they have to choose. Before they can discuss it further, the TARDIS materializes in their back yard and they figure they can choose later...Read the full recap
The Doctor: Invasion of the very small cubes. That's new.
Brian Williams: What if they're bombs? Billions of tiny bombs. Or transport capsules, maybe, with a mini-robot inside. Or deadly hard drives. Or alien eggs. Or messages needing decoding. Or... they're all parts of a bigger whole. Jigsaw puzzles that need fitting together.
The Doctor: Very thorough, Brian. Very, very thorough. Well done. Stay here. Watch these. Yell if anything happens.
Rory: What do you think we do when we're not with you?
The Doctor: I imagine mostly kissing.
Rory: There are soldiers all over my house and I'm in my pants.
Amy: My whole life I've dreamed of saying that. And I miss it by being someone else.
Rory: You said we had to be patient.
The Doctor: Yes, you. You, not me. I hate being patient. Patience is for wimps.
Amy: Secret base beneath the Tower. Hope we're not here because we know too much.
Kate Stewart: Yes, I've got officers trained in beheading. Also ravens of death.
Amy: I like her.
The Doctor: I need to think, I need some air. Who has an underground base? Terrible ventilation.
The Doctor: I'm not running away. But this is one corner, of one country, on one continent, on one planet, that's a corner of the galaxy, that's a corner of the universe that' is forever shrinking and growing and destroying and never remaining the same for a single millisecond. And there is so much--so much to see, Amy. Because it goes so fast. I'm not running away from things, I'm running to them before they flare and fade forever.
Amy: And why do you keep coming back for us?
The Doctor: Because you were the first. The first face this face saw. And you are seared onto my hearts, Amelia Pond. Always will be. I'm running to you and Rory before you... fade from me.
Amy: Don't be nice to me. Don't want you to be nice to me.
The Doctor: Yeah, you do, Pond. And you always get what you want.
