Episode Quotes
Churchwarden: Hey! One more word, sir.
(the Doctor turns again to face the Churchwarden)
Churchwarden: If you should come this way again and find me gone, remember these words. This is Deadman's secret key: Smallwood, Ringwood, Gurney.
Dr: Eh, but what to, ah... What's the purpose, sir?
Churchwarden: It's a secret worth remembering...
Dr: Yes...
Churchwarden: ...for this kindness...
Dr: ...thank you. Thank you indeed...
(points to the Churchwarden's hand)
Dr: ...and I think that's going to be all right now. Yes. Ye... heh, heh... s. Goodbye, sir. Goodbye.
(to Polly and Ben)
Dr: Come along.
Polly: Goodbye. Thank you.
Churchwarden: God bless.
(the Doctor, Ben and Polly walk off into the night. None of them see the bald seaman watching from behind cover. The seaman watches the trio walk away, then pulls out a knife and walks into the church)

Cherub: You're a fool, Joe Longfoot. But before you goes to join your mates, tell me what I want to know. Speak up!
Churchwarden: Avery's... curse on you... - you black villain.
Cherub: Speak, damn your eyes!
(the Churchwarden dies)
Cherub: It wouldn't be like you to go to Davy Jones' silent, matey. So I reckon we best get on to that old fella and get our hooks into him.
