Subtitles Transcript:

:

Meglos: Flies trapped in Amber... Not even the Doctor can escape a chronic hysteretic loop!

Gaztak General Grugger: A what?

Meglos: I've caught him inside a fold of time.

Gaztak General Grugger: Ah, ha ha, good.

Meglos: His only respite is the short period when he loops back to the start.

Gaztak General Grugger: Round and round. For all eternity!

Romana: Oh blast! Here we go again!

Doctor Who: What's the matter?

Romana: Well, now his probe circuit's jammed!

Doctor Who: Well, that's easy, just waggle his tail.

Romana: All right, we've tried everything else!

K9: Thank you, Mistress, repairs complete.

Doctor Who: That's the third time. What's happening?

Romana: The TARDIS appears to be functioning normally.

Doctor Who: Yes, then what? Repeated time cycles? Oh no! - It couldn't be a chronic hysteresis, could it?

Romana: Chronic hysteresis! - I hope not. If it is, we'll be stuck here forever.

Doctor Who: Yes.

Gaztak Lieutenant Brotadac: So this Meglos can bend time?

Gaztak General Grugger: Right. In a loop.

Gaztak Lieutenant Brotadac: I've never heard of that, have you?

Gaztak General Grugger: Doesn't matter how it's done. The point is, the Doctor doesn't get to Tigella.

Meglos: Oh, but he does, gentlemen, he does! We mustn't disappoint the Tigellans!

Doctor Who: It's no good! Every time we try to...

Romana: Oh blast! Here we go again!

Doctor Who: What's the matter?

Romana: Well, now his probe circuit's jammed.

Doctor Who: Well, that's easy, just waggle his tail.

Romana: All right, we've tried everything else!

K9: Thank you, Mistress, repairs complete.

Romana: What can we try now? K9, is there any way out of a chronic hysteresis?

K9: Negative, Mistress. No known technological procedure.

Doctor Who: We're still looping.

Romana: What if we stop the Time Rotor?

Doctor Who: Yes. No! - That's a terrible idea!

Romana: I'm only trying to help!

Doctor Who: There's no known technological procedure! Sorry to whisper, but there's no known technological procedure... There's no known technological procedure.

Romana: Oh blast! Here we go again!

Romana: Oh blast! Here we go again!

Doctor Who: What's the matter?

Romana: Well, now his probe circuit's jammed!

Doctor Who: Well, that's easy, just waggle his tail.

Romana: All right, we've tried everything else!

K9: Thank you, Mistress, repairs complete.

Romana: We can't get out of it. We've tried everything.

Doctor Who: Yes, that's what you said when you were repairing K9? We've tried everything? We've tried everything? We've tried everything? Of course!

Romana: What?

Doctor Who: Can you remember the rest of what you said?

Romana: I should think so, we've been through it enough times.

Doctor Who: K9?

K9: Master.

Doctor Who: Then that's how we'll do it! Throw it out of phase.

Romana: You mean, go through the motions deliberately?

Doctor Who: Yes, yes, yes... before the cycle comes back again.

Romana: Well, you were over there.

Doctor Who: What?

Romana: Over there.

Doctor Who: Yes, yes, of course... Good! Off you go then!

Romana: Oh blast, here we go again...

Doctor Who: What's the matter?

Romana: Now his probe circuit's jammed!

[The Doctor forgets his lines...]

Doctor Who: Ah, that's easy just waggle his tail!

Romana: All right, we've tried everything else.

K9: Thank you, Mistress... Repairs complete...

Romana: Phase cancellation! We've done it!

Doctor Who: Well done, and for one awful moment, I thought you'd forgotten your lines!
