Adelaide: You saved us.
The Doctor: Just think though. Your daughter, and your daughter’s daughter; you can see them again. Family reunion!
Adelaide: But I’m supposed to be dead.
The Doctor: Not any more.
Adelaide: But Suzy, my granddaughter. The person she is supposed to become will never exist now.
The Doctor: Nah. Captain Adelaide can inspire her face to face! Different details, but the story’s the same.
Adelaide: You can’t know that! And if my family changes… the whole of history could change. The future of the human race. No one should have that much power.
The Doctor: Tough!
Adelaide: You should have left us there.
The Doctor: Adelaide, I have run this sort of thing before. In small ways. Save some little people, but never someone as important as you. Ohh, I’m good.
Adelaide: Little people? What, like Mia and Yuri? Who decides they’re so unimportant - you?
The Doctor: For a long time now, I thought I was just a survivor, but I’m not. I’m the winner. That’s who I am. The Time Lord Victorious!
Adelaide: And there is no one to stop you.
The Doctor: No!
Adelaide: This is wrong, Doctor. I don’t care who you are. The Time Lord Victorious is wrong.
The Doctor: That’s for me to decide. Now, you better get home. Oh, it’s all locked up. You’ve been away. Still - that’s easy. All yours!
Adelaide: Is there nothing you can’t do?
The Doctor: Not any more!
