Eve is uh…Eve will just look at me sometimes because, I call…We have nicknames. And uh, Eve’s
breasts are called “the girls” and mine are called ”the boys.”…and she will say things like…
“Oh, put the boys away”…yeah…and uh, I won’t say what Naoko’s is called…

Threesome…A Forlorn Lisa
John: Well, you’ll just have to wait and see because, uh…you know, without Tosh and Owen,
um, obviously it’s only, uh, Ianto, and Jack and Gwen, but uh…
John: What?…A threesome. Oh my god, you guys are as sick as I am, and I love it.
John: No. Lisa’s gone. Lisa’s dead!
Julie: I thought that was jealousy. I thought Captain Jack was being jealous of Lisa.
John: A little bit, yeah. You’ll have to just watch and see because a lot of dynamics will
change…That’s all I’ll say. But, but um now Jack…that’s a funny thing cause every time we used to uh,
…that was one of the jokes on set…Gareth…We’d like pop a picture every so often, like many
episodes after the Lisa episode, he would…and he would just…like this…I’d go “Who’s that over
there?” (points away.)

Julie: Yeah, Russell’s here somewhere, he’s under the table…
John: I’m…I’m actually a hand puppet right now.
Julie: I am so moving on to the next question! Stand back buddy…Hello…
He Grows and Grows and Grows
Audience: Is there anything you would change about Jack
Audience: I didn’t think so.
John: No. And he gro… Every time I read a script he grows and grows and grows…and that’s amazing
(woman in audience screams)
John: She got it. The rest of you are too slow.
When I want a little Doctor…
Julie: And in our studio in Cardiff, the Tardis and the Torchwood hub are next to each other.
John: They’re separated by a curtain. So we can go from one to the other…When I want a little
Doctor, I go that way…When I want a little Ianto I go that way…
