Up Pompeii

I noted down some dialogue during Doctor Who tonight. I may have got some of it wrong, though. There was a disturbance in space and time.

Chief soothsayer (Phil Davis): I say, Doctor, do you think the audience enjoyed my intense acting?

Doctor: [in the rubble] You brought the house down!

(Cumaean Sybil enters, shedding gravel)

The Sybil: Pompeii's citizens will suffer the fate of the sinful men of Gomorrah!

Doctor: Will they, indeed?

The Sybil: And Sodom

Doctor: Ooh, I agree, the lot of 'em!

Donna: Doctor, you can't mean it. You must spare someone! (bursts into tears)

Doctor: Ooh, she's very embittered, you know. Very embittered. You've seen the ring she had on? Well, allegedly, that was given to her by her fiancé when she was a young woman, but he jilted her, and she hasn't had it off since!

Donna: Are you disrespecting me?

Doctor: [to audience] I will quote from the words of Cleopatra to Mark Antony: if you enjoyed it, tell all your friends. Saluté!
