Quelle Grammage!
“I need to start associating with a better class of criminal lowlife. The kind that hangs out in penthouse suites, not hideouts at the end of rat-infested alleyways. Oh, it’s atmospheric in the retelling, sure, but some of the stains just won’t wash out, ya know?” no. 30 bazillions in the series “die grass die you fuckin grass why wont you DIE” “Sometimes when I find myself deep down inside a skanky labyrinth of back alleys I have to stop for a moment and remind myself whether I’m chasing baddies or meeting with friends at this week’s latest new anonymous hipster bar.” Never pass up a chance to pose with a TARDIS door.
