Day 24 – Best quote:

There's just no way to choose ONE quote from everything, so I'm just going to go with a favorite quote from my obsession du jour, Doctor Who:

"This is my Timey-Wimey detector. It goes ding when there's stuff. And it can boil an egg at thirty paces..." (10, Doctor Who)



I saw this quote long before watching the show in various journals, and I thought it seemed like a very funny and awesome quote then, but when I finally saw it on the actual show I loved it even more--it's just so perfect, so much humor in one succinct phrase, made better by the way Tennant delivers it. :D

While we're talking Doctor Who though, a runner-up favorite quote is probably 9's "I think you need a Doctor"; what can I say, I love puns, however good or bad they are, and it was such a perfect thing to say in that moment, and followed by a kiss I had been desperately waiting for! :)




I also now have the first DW soundtrack (seasons 1 and 2), woohoo! :D  I love the song "Love Don't Roam," it's great for an original song, and it brings me back to that heartbreaking scene in "The Runaway Bride"....

Nine's "I think you need a Doctor" quote was so cheesy, but I LOVE it LoL I re-watched 1x01 and 1x02 the other day. Made me miss Nine all over again LOL

I don't know if I could pick ONE favorite DW quote if I had to. There's so many that I love.

I've been listening to the soundtracks non-stop for 2 days now, I'm so in love with them. I really love "Doomsday", "The Doctor's Theme", "Rose's Theme", "Life Among the Distant Stars" (S4) and of course "Song of Freedom" which I talked about the other day LoL

See, it sounds cheesy, but IDK, the way CE pulls it off, IT TOTALLY WORKS and didn't sound cheesy at all, IMO...(and as I said, I LOVE puns, and make bad ones all the time! :P). And yeah, as I said, I rewatched "Rose" recently, and do miss the old 9 and 9/Rose days...their dynamic was different, but for me equally adorable/amazing...

I have trouble choosing, for me it's all one big epic Doctor/Rose story, with two stages! :) In any case though, I warmed up to 9 more easily than I am 11 so far...people talk about how more alien 11 is, but I have to say, rewatching 1x01, 9 was pretty alien too, his whole exchange with Rose about whether the living plastic dummies were students, LMAO....

And yeah, there are indeed many great quotes (another one coming to mind is when in TEoT he talks about "a word of great wisdom," etc, and it's "Allons-y!"--god I'll miss that, "Geronimo" just isn't the same! And then there's the quotes about the Doctor, like from HN/FoB and Rose's quotes in AoG), but that is certainly one of my favorites, IDK it just has a great ring to it! :D

Yeah, "Doomsday" is just amazing, I remember noting it at the time, thinking how much it added to the overall epicness of the scene. I think my favorite might be "This is Gallifrey. Our Childhood. Our Home" (though I'm trying to remember when this music played on the show), it has a real epic quality to it as well, and there's that vid... And yeah, "The Doctor's Theme" is another great one....I'm going to try to make one of the songs (Gallifrey one or Doomsday perhaps) my ringtone, lol, because I'm a huge nerd like that! :p

I, too, think 9 was pretty alien himself, at least at first. Eleven is too, more than Ten was. But, I still think Ten was the best. I think Eleven, sometimes, is TOO alien. It's supposed to be the same person/Time Lord, and when I look at Eleven, I can't see anything that Ten was in him, you know what I mean? He doesn't have ANY of Ten's personality. Unlike Ten, who I thought had a lot of Nine's traits. Eleven just feels like a completely new person. Eleven doesn't act like the horrible stuff that happened to him in TEoT affected him at all. He acts like nothing is wrong. He should've still felt affected by those things, and from losing everyone, and he doesn't really. Ten just FELT like The Doctor, in every sense, and even now, watching films David has done, I still see him as The Doctor LoL

Eleven's "geronimo"...I hate it. It's not nearly as great as "allon-sy" was, not by a long-shot. I think they could've come up with something better LoL

I made the theme song my ringtone LOL Everytime my phone rings now I can't help but laugh because it's just so nerdy of me LOL

Yeah, I guess with regeneration it gives you distance perhaps? IDK, 10 was at first at least much more light-hearted and happy-go-lucky (and giggly) than 9 had been, but maybe that was just Rose. I can understand the need to make the Doctor somewhat less emo, but yeah...I'm not sure I like 11's characterization so much so far, he's certainly a lot more bossy, telling them to shut up and go back to the TARDIS, etc.

And lol re: the ringtone! :p I considered that too, but I wasn't sure if I could pull it off...but it makes you pretty awesome to have it! :D Do people recognize it when they hear it?
Steph: Nine & Rosevengefulspirit on September 6th, 2010 06:18 am (UTC)
Eleven is definitely more bossy. It kind of irritates me sometimes that he's like that.

I haven't had it ring out in public yet (somehow I'm relieved by that) LOL But, if it does ring sometime while I'm out, I'd love for someone to recognize it.

HEE. I love your Doctor quotes! One of my favorites is the "we're hermits" quote from "Utopia". IDK why, but every time I hear it I burst into a fit of giggles.
sherrilina: 9/Rose (Doctor Who)sherrilina on September 6th, 2010 05:17 am (UTC)
Oh yeah, that was a great one too! LMAO...and when they asked why there were so many of them all together...:D
