“Nobody important? Blimey, that’s amazing. You know, nine hundred years of time and space and I’ve never met anybody who wasn’t important before.”

From: Dr. Who

Genre: Television

Who said it?: The Doctor

The story behind the quote: This week’s quote comes from the long-lived BBC science-fiction television program, Dr. Who. The show features The Doctor, who is portrayed by different actors, as he travels through different points in time.

This week’s quote comes from the 11th incarnation of The Doctor (played by Matt Smith) in the holiday special, aptly named A Christmas Carol. A family pleads with Kazran Sardick (played by Michael Gambon) to unfreeze their relative to celebrate the holidays. As Kazran Sardick refuses, The Doctor arrives via the chimmey. After a quick speech, The Doctor looks at the frozen woman and asks who she is. When Kazran Sardick says she’s “nobody important,” The Doctor, in his amazement, delivers the quote.

Geek wisdom:  Everyone means something to someone in the world. Even when you feel like you are insignificant, there is still definitely someone who thinks you are important to them.
