It all ends tonight for Matt Smith as the eleventh doctor on BBC‘s Doctor Who so we take a look back at some of our favorite quotes.
It’s never easy to say goodbye to a favorite actor, especially one who may have been many people’s very first Doctor. While it is time for Matt Smith to move onto new projects and give up the helm to Peter Capaldi, it’s still hard. We take a look at eleven quotes that will help us remember the actor that was the Raggedy Man.
Listen to me. In ten minutes, you’ll be a legend. In ten minutes, everyone on that screen will be your friend and offer you any job you want. But first, you have to be magnificent. You have to make them trust you and get them working. This is it, Jeff. Right here, right now. Today’s the day you save the world. (The Eleventh Hour)
I’ll be a story in your head, but that’s okay, because we’re all stories in the end. Just make it a good one, eh? (The Big Bang)
Letting it get to you. You know what that’s called? Being alive. Best thing there is. Being alive right now is all that counts. (The Doctor’s Wife)
The writing – the graffiti – Old High Gallifreyan… the lost language of The Timelords. There were days, there were many days, these words could burn stars, and raise up empires, and topple gods. (The Time of Angels)
In 900 years of time and space, I’ve never met anyone who wasn’t important. (A Christmas Carol)
I’m not running away. But this is one corner of one country in one continent on one planet that’s a corner of a galaxy that’s a corner of a universe that is forever growing and shrinking and creating and destroying and never remaining the same for a single millisecond, and there is so much, so much, to see, Amy. Because it goes so fast, I’m not running away from things, I am running to them. Before they flare and fade forever. (The Power of Three)
Come on, look at me! No plan, no backup, no weapons worth a damn, oh, and something else I don’t have: anything to lose! So, if you’re sitting up there in your silly little space ships with all your silly little guns, and you’ve got any plans on taking the Pandorica tonight, just remember who’s standing in your way! Remember every black day I ever stopped you, and then, and then, do the smart thing! Let somebody else try first. (The Pandorica Opens)
The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don’t always soften the bad things, but vice versa the bad things don’t always spoil the good things and make them unimportant. (Vincent and the Doctor)
Through crimson stars and silent stars and tumbling nebulas like oceans set on fire, through empires of glass and civilizations of pure thought, and a whole, terrible, wonderful universe of impossibilities. You see these eyes? They’re old eyes… and one thing I can tell you, Alex: monsters are real. (Night Terrors)
I have a new destination. My journey is the same as yours, the same as anyone’s. It’s taken me so many years and so many lifetimes, but, at last, I know where I’m going. Where I’ve always been going. Home. The long way round. (50th Anniversary Special)
Everything’s got to end sometime, otherwise nothing would ever get started. (A Christmas Carol)
Thank you Matt Smith for all that you’ve done in the Who universe. You will never be forgotten.
