The Doctor: Benjamin Franklin.
Mr. Stoker: (surpised) Correct.

The Doctor: We might die.
Martha: We might not.
The Doctor: Good.
The Doctor: It's not "Smith." That's not my real name.
Martha: Who are you then?
The Doctor: I'm the Doctor.
Martha: Me too if I ever pass my exams. What is it then, Dr. Smith?
Doctor: Just "the Doctor."
Martha: How do you mean, "just 'the Doctor?'"
The Doctor: Just "the Doctor."
Martha: What, people call you "the Doctor?"
The Doctor: Yeah.
Martha: Well, I'm not. As far as I'm concerned you've got to earn that title.
The Doctor: All right, better get started then.

Martha: Your spaceship's made of wood.
The Doctor: Welcome aboard, Miss Jones!
Martha: (laughs) It's my pleasure, Mr. Smith!
