- The Tenth Doctor calls the Apollo 11 mission "[p]acking three men into a tin can filled with a skyscraper's worth of fuel, hurling them out of the atmosphere into the harshest conditions imaginable, with nothing more powerful than a pocket calculator to guide them. For what? Just because you can."
- The Doctor says "it's Neil and Buzz that land on the Moon and plant the flag and play golf, but without all these wonderful people down here...", gesturing to Mission Control, "Without these unsung heroes [...] none of it will happen."
