Rose slumps on to one of the comfy TARDIS chairs, just completely out of it. No more hoping for her keys. Jackie watches and tries to console her: "It was never gonna work, sweetheart. And the Doctor knew that. He just wanted you to be safe." Rose protests, but Jackie advises her to lock the door: "Walk away." I wonder whether she knew about that part of Episode 1? Nice connection with the Doctor, if not. "Dad wouldn't give up," says Rose, and Jackie stares at her: "Well, he's not here, is he?" Beat. "And even if he was, he'd say the same." Rose doesn't even think: "No, he wouldn't. He'd tell me to try anything. If I could save the Doctor's life.... Try anything." Jackie's like, "We could both make up stories about your father all day, considering we've been doing it since the day he died and it's proven a pretty good coping mechanism," but Rose has the upper hand now: "I know, because I met him. I met Dad." Jackie gets very still and not entirely unscary: "Don't be ridiculous." And I think by "ridiculous" Jackie means "speaking." Rose sits up straight and spills the beans: "The Doctor took me back in time, and I met Dad." Jackie tells her not to say that, and Rose begins to remind her of the day Pete Tyler died: "There was someone with him," Rose says, voice cracking all across. "A girl. A blonde girl. She held his hand...." Jackie stares; she doesn't blink. Rose begins to get frustrated: "You saw her from a distance, mum! You saw her! Think about it! That was me. You saw me." And Jackie tells her harshly to cram it. Rose continues: "...That's how good the Doctor is --" Jackie shouts at her to stop, and goes running from the TARDIS. Rose begins to shake now, sobbing, overcome with grief. I gotta tell you I was mystified by this scene. Why? Why go there? Why bring it up at all? But I think I worked it out.
Lynda watches the Fleet gliding down, and marks their destruction of continents: "Europa. Pacifica. The New American Alliance." The screen shows things going south. "Australasia's just...gone.
God: "This is perfection. I have created Heaven on Earth." Only a fake bastard God could think that was beautiful.
Jack hurries onto Floor 499 with a gun, calling out to the remaining men: "We're the last defense. The bullets should work, if you concentrate them on the Dalek's eyestalk. I've got the forcefield at maximum, so the Dalek fire should be at its weakest." There's a junky barricade, all jury-rigged pieces of office equipment and stuff. It's totally cool. They settle in to wait. The male programmer tells the lady one that he's only here because of her: "I joined the program because you were on it." She messes with him, and says, "Am I supposed to say, when this is all over and if we're still alive, maybe we could go for a drink?" He admits that that would be good, and she clucks, "Yeah, well, tough." But when he looks at her, she winks, and they smile, and it is very cute. Their asses are so dead. They click off their safeties and get ready to fire.
