Quotes: The Tape Knew You Would Say That
(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 going to say is, well I can hear you.
Doctor: Well, I can hear you.
Sally: This isn't possible.
Doctor: Well, not hear you, exactly, but I know everything you're going to say.
Sally: How can you know what I'm going to say?
Doctor: Look to your left.
(Sally's friend Larry is sitting on the floor, writing.)
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!
