** In the 2015 season, "I had a duty of care" starts out as the Twelfth Doctor expressing borderline-overprotection of his companion, Clara. When uttered at the end of the season, [[spoiler: after the Doctor has spent 4 1/2 billion years on a BatmanGambit to try and save her life, risking all of time and space]], it takes on a completely different meaning. Clara's response is to say "People like me and you, we should say things to one another," which is a meaningful echo of something said about two different people who had grown close during an episode earlier in the season.
