Villain- Clockwork Men, who need the brain of Madame de Pompadour, specifically at the age of 37, and will do anything to get it.

The Doctor: Must be a spatio-temporal hyperlink.
Mickey Smith: What's that?
The Doctor: No idea, I just made it up. Didn't want to say "Magic Door"

The Doctor: Rose, take Arthur, follow it. Don't approach it, just go, go, go!
Rose Tyler: Arthur?
The Doctor: Good name for a horse.
Rose Tyler: No, you're not keeping the horse.
The Doctor: I let you keep Mickey!

The Doctor: [drunk] Have you met the French? My God they know how to party!
Rose Tyler: Oh look at what the cat dragged in, the oncoming storm.
The Doctor: You sound just like your mother.
Rose Tyler: What have you been doing? Where have you been?
The Doctor: Well, among other things, I *think* I may have just invented the banana daiquiri a few centuries early.

Mickey Smith: What's a horse doing on a spaceship?
The Doctor: Mickey, what's Pre-Revolutionary France doing on a spaceship? Get a little perspective!

The Doctor: Nah, nothing here. Well, nothing dangerous. Well, not that dangerous. Know what, I'll just have a quick scan... in case there's anything dangerous.

The Doctor: Poisson?... No, no, no way, Reinette Poisson? Later Madame D'Etoiles, later still mistress of Louis the XV, uncrowned Queen of French? Actress, artist, musician, dancer, courtesan. Fantastis Gardener! French Servant: Who the hell are you?
The Doctor: [triumphant] I'm the Doctor, and I just snogged Madame de Pompadour!

Favorite Character- Madame de Pompadour, her chemistry wih The Doctor broke my heart. I'm not Francais at all, even though I do take French class. But, from what I've read and seen with the history of Reinette Poisson, Sophia Myles was gorgeous at acting as her. Extraordinaire!

Favorite Moment- The very end, The Doctor is reading the letter Reinette wrote to him. A tear welled up in my eye, "My Dear Doctor, The path has never seemed more slow and yet I fear I am nearing its end. Reason tells me that you and I are unlikely to meet again, but I think I shall not listen to reason." As she loved her Fireplace Man,it's so sad! "I have seen the world inside your head and know that all things are possible. Hurry then my love; my days grow shorter now and I am so very weak. Godspeed my lonely angel. "

Tear Factor- Who doesn't cry at a good love story??? 6 out of 10

Fear Factor- Eh, Clockwork Droids weren'tawul, but the first scene with them in Reinette's bedroom was schock-scary type, 4 out of 10
Rating- 9 out of 10
