Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

  • Ten talking to Rose; as the ending makes clear, for Ten this is immediately before "Smith & Jones".
  • One falling into the star Proammon and resigned to his fate, only for all of the Doctor's companions to materialize a TARDIS inside his TARDIS and pull him to safety. Then, while he's getting all grumpy with them for being so reckless, the Brigadier puts him on the spot pointing out the huge array of wildly different people before them, and explaining how much the Doctor means to them.
  • After Six thinks Four has been killed, he finds Four's scarf in some wreckage and wears it for awhile. Also a Tear Jerker.
  • When Five shows up as Ten is getting stressed over all his incarnations appearing, Ten pulls him into a hug and says:

Tenth Doctor: I haven't always been proud of you, but I often wished I was you again!

    • When you consider this was written before "Time Crash", which touched on how Ten admires Five (and David Tennant admires Peter Davison), this becomes rather touching.
  • Four uses his long scarf to wrap up Leela's recently de-aged children.
  • Also a rather funny moment: "Look ma, no Dalek!" And then he gets rushed by nearly every companion he has ever had. Oncoming Storm, meet the Oncoming Glomp! Oh, I have something in my eye...
  • When Rose is held hostage by a Dalek (Tor), Nine wants to kill his future Dalek-self rather than spare her life — but finally chooses to rather save her. Cue Ten smiling with tears in his eyes.
    • Even better, it's ONE that calls him out. To be fair though, the idea was that Ten's regeneration would eliminate the Dalek programming.
