"Old and New, Borrowed and Blue." This is what the Doctor tells Amelia before stepping into the crack in her wall. Did it occur to anyone that this in fact a wedding saying? Did anyone else pick that up?...I thought it was very clever and thought I should share it in case some of you didn't pick it up. I mean come on he knew to tell her that so she would remeber it on her wedding day which would bring him back from the void. 18.104.22.168 11:20, June 29, 2010 (UTC) MasterFan
I missed the part where he said that...but now it almost suggests to me that a future future Doctor caused this explosion and chose the specific date, allowing Big Bang 2 to prevent an even greater catastrophy (though how is it possible to have an even greater catastrophy is beyond me)...If Moffat does intend it...then we should legalize forced euthanasia before he films series 6...this almost ensures the ultimate fate of the Doctor heading the path of the Bad Wolf where the Ultimate Doctor manipulated every event in his own timeline to ensure that he comes into existence....Fight for our legal Doctor Who right before Moffat ruins it forever...22.214.171.124 11:40, June 29, 2010 (UTC)
- I think everyone picked up on it, mainly because of the part where Amy actually says that he planned it. The Thirteenth Doctor 11:42, June 29, 2010 (UTC)
- Yeah I missed it...I thought the line during the wedding was just a bad joke...but do you mean everyone picked up on the theory that he planned the explosion?!?126.96.36.199 12:31, June 29, 2010 (UTC
ACTUALLY, he said "I borrowed it you know. Always meant to bring it back..." (or something along that lines) "...Brand new and ancient. and blue. the bluest blue..."
Didn't pick that line up the first time, but the moment Rory mentioned something about "don't you know the old wedding saying?" or something like that, it all snapped in my head. :D
on a side note, I loved how Karen Gillan says "and you are late for my wedding!" DoctorHer 14:02, June 29, 2010 (UTC)In the associated Confidential episode, Steven Moffat makes it pretty clear that the Doctor knew that the one phrase Amy would hear again on her wedding day was "Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue".
