Solana: "Ood, you dropped something."
Ood: "Doh!"

Donna: "It’s weird, but being with you, I can’t tell what’s right and what’s wrong anymore."
The Doctor: "It’s better that way. People who know for certain tend to be like Mr. Halpen."

Donna: "Well do something. You’re the one with all the tricks. You must have met Houdini."
The Doctor: "These are really good handcuffs."
Donna: "Well I’m glad of that. I mean, at least we’ve got quality! "

Donna: "Are you all the same?"
Ood: "I don’t know what you mean, Miss."
Donna: "Why are you calling me "miss"? Do I look single to you?!"

The Doctor: "Oh, I’ve sort of got a song of my own thanks."
Ood Sigma: "I think your song must end soon."
The Doctor: "Meaning?"
Ood Sigma: "Every song must end."
