Frank Bigelow

  • [After being told his grim prognosis] Do you realize what you're saying? You're telling me that I'm dead!
  • I can breathe and I can move, but I'm not alive because I took that poison, and nothing can save me.

Second doctor

  • I don't think you understand, Bigelow. You've been murdered.
