Amy Pond (Karen Gillan): “What are you going to do?”
The Doctor (Matt Smith): “What I always do: stay out of trouble…badly.”
–The Beast Below episode of Doctor Who
Screenplay by Stephen Moffat
This is one in a series of quotations. I’ve decided to send them out one at a time, instead of in batches
I’ve been working, from time to time, on a book of quotations for many years. I call it, “The Mind Boggles”, from one of my favorite quotations. I do source quotations a bit differently from a lot of people. In the case of a work of a fiction, I consider that the character said the line…not the author. As a bit of an author myself (in a minor way), I can tell you…my characters definitely say things that I would never say. These are all quotations that I’ve collected myself: I’ve read the book, seen the TV episode, and so on.
Hope you enjoy them!
