These are some of my favorite quotes from the Whoniverse. I have avoided the usual ones, i.e. the First Doctor's goodbye to Susan and the Seventh Doctor's monologue to Ace, and have gotten some of the lesser known quotes. These are the ones that are as good as any but just haven't recieved the wide spread attention they should.

I would like to say a special thanks to "Time Lady" Lea Hays for finding some cool quotes.
