Rose: [playing along] Nah, I failed hullabaloo.
The Doctor: Blimey!
Rose Tyler: Don’t laugh!
The Doctor: You look beautiful! [Rose stops laughing and smiles instead. The Doctor looks away awkwardly] …considering.
Rose Tyler: Considering what?
The Doctor: That you’re human.

Rose Tyler: You, stay there! You’ve done this before. This is mine!
Rose: But, it’s like… think about it, though. Christmas. 1860. Happens once. Just once, and it’s gone. It’s finished. It’ll never happen again. Except for you. You can go back and see days that are dead and gone and a hundred thousand sunsets ago… no wonder you never stay still…

[Rose turns up the radio]
Rose: You got the moves? Show me your moves.
The Doctor: [Unnerved] Rose, I’m… trying to resonate concrete.

Capt. Jack Harkness: Didn’t look like talking.
Rose: Didn’t feel like dancing.
