Dalek Sec, partially transformed into a human, steps forward and announces the experiment's success. He orders other humans brought forward for hybridization but the Doctor interrupts. The Daleks explain how they fled through time after the last Dalek/Cyberman war in the 21st century. Sec boasts that he now has human emotions: hostility, anger, hate. The Doctor uses a radio to emit a blast of high-pitched noise to distract the Daleks and their pig slaves so he can get Martha and the others to safety. They get to the surface and return to Hooverville, while the three “normal” Daleks question Sec’s newfound transformation and the fact they don’t trust him...

Episode Quotes
The Doctor: (to the Dalek Sec Hybrid) Is it me or are you becoming a little bit more human?

Tallulah: New York City - if aliens had to come to Earth, no wonder they came here.

The Doctor: Daleks are bad enough at any time, but right now they're vulnerable - and that makes them more dangerous than ever...

Frank: One man down and we haven't even started.
Martha: It's not looking good, Frank.
Frank: Nope.
Martha: We're gonna get slaughtered.

Dalek Caan: I shall have the privilege of exterminating the Doctor!

Dalek Caan: (to the Dalek Sec Hybrid) You asked us to imagine. We imagined your irrelevance!

Tallulah: Doctor, can't you do something?
The Doctor: Oh, Tallulah with 3 "l"'s and an "h". Just you watch me. What do I need, oh I dunno, how about a great big genetic laboratory? Oh look, I've got one. Laszlo, just you hold on! There've been too many deaths today; way too many people have died. Brand new creatures and wise old men and age old enemies, and I tell you, I tell you right now, I am NOT having one more death!

The Doctor: Tallulah, out of the way! The Doctor is in!
