Genesis of the Daleks  -  Doctor: Do I have the right? Simply touch one wire against the other, and it’s it. The Daleks cease to exist. Hundreds of millions of people, thousands of generations, can live without fear, in peace, and never even know the word “Dalek”. Sarah: Then why wait? If it was a disease or some sort of bacteria you were destroying, you wouldn’t hesitate! Doctor: But if I kill, wipe out a whole intelligent life form, then I’d become like them. I’d be no better than the Daleks.
