Jabe approaches, her companions holding plant trays. "The Gift of Peace," she says, holding out a vessel with a small planted cutting. "I bring you a cutting of my Grandfather." The Doctor thanks Jabe and hands the pot to Rose, and then searches his pockets for a return gift. The Doctor travels light, so he pats around and clears his throat awhile before offering "air from [his] lungs" in return. He blows gently into Jabe's face, and her eyelids flutter. "How...intimate," she breathes, and the Doctor flirts that there's more where that came from. "I bet there is," smiles Jabe. Rose freaks, slightly and quietly. Just how much of an alien is the Doctor, really? The Steward introduces "the sponsor of the main event," a giant face in a giant jar the size of a Toyota Corolla, called the Face of Bo. The Moxx of Balhoon approaches the Doctor and Rose, and the Doctor cordially acknowledges him. Moxx has a squeaky voice: "My felicitations on this historical happenstance. I give you the gift of bodily salivas!" He spits directly into Rose's left eye, and the Doctor falls out laughing. "Thank you very much." As Rose wipes the spit from her eyes, the Adherents of the Repeated Meme approach them. Sigh. So I guess we're working with the knowledge of your average livejournaler. I don't wanna go into it, lest the ugly rumors that I might actually know something about something start up again, but...stay tuned for next week, when the Doctor "deconstructs" something by...blowing it up. The Doctor breathes on them and one of them hands him a large silver egg, which he tosses in the air before handing it to Rose. "A gift of peace in all good faith." They are also Adherents of Repeatedly Bearing False Witness, apparently, because I'll tell you right now that it's neither.
