What's Past Is Prologue
"We haven't got much time. If there's pilot fish, then..." The Doctor suddenly pulls an apple out of Howard's robe: "Why's there an apple in my dressing gown?" He and Jackie have a hilarious conversation about why Howard keeps apples in his dressing gown -- "He gets hungry in his sleep?" "Sometimes" -- before the Doctor shouts again, in pain. "Brain...collapsing..." He grabs Rose's arms, anchoring himself. "The pilot fish mean...that something's coming." He drops again, this time back out of consciousness, into Rose's lap.
Rose pats the Doctor's forehead with a cold washcloth; he's begun sweating and fretting. Mickey plugs in a laptop and promises Jackie that he'll keep an account of his phone line usage. She hands out cups of tea and reminds us that it's now Christmas Day, midnight; Rose tells her that the Doctor's now down to just one heart. The news says that, after a bit of confusion, they've reestablished contact with Guinevere One; transmission to follow. Llewellyn is proud, even as he admits that she was only offline for a few seconds: "We're getting the first pictures transmitted live any minute now...I'd better get back to it. Thanks." He takes off.
