(The Tenth Doctor is recording himself onto a tape in 1969. Sally is watching the tape in 2007.)
Sally: 1969, that's where you're talking from?
Doctor: Afraid so.
Sally: But you're replying to me. You can't know exactly what I'm going to say, forty years before I say it.
Doctor: Thirty eight.
(Later in the same conversation)
Sally: Next thing you're gonna say is, "Well, I can hear you."
Doctor: Well, I can hear you.
Sally: This isn't possible!
Larry: [watching] No, it's brilliant!
Doctor: Well, not hear you, exactly, but I know everything you're gonna say.
Sally: How can you know what I'm gonna say?
Doctor: Look to your left.
Larry: What does he mean by look to your left? I've written tons about that on the forums. I think it's a political statement.

Professor: (on holo-recorder) I know you're all very upset, especially Bender.
Bender: Well, life goes on...Except for you!
Professor: I'm sure that Bender has just made a cutting remark, but he doesn't know I taped over his soap operas to record this message.
Bender: YOU BASTARD!

Delta: Unfortunately, I have been taken by the Meta. This is merely a memory I left in Caboose's mind to help you along your way.
Church: Then how are you talking to me?
Delta: I am not. I merely used logic to determine what questions you would ask and in what order. Then I left the appropriate responses.
Church: Oh, reall—
Delta: Yes, really.
Church: Okay. I like cheeseburgers.
Delta: Stop trying to test me.
Church: Empire State Building.
Delta: Seriously, stop. I left this memory in case you found it.
