INT. TARDIS - A WHITE CONSOLE ROOM
THE DOCTOR and RIVER silently walk in a dance around the console room, One Sets a dial, Another turns a lever. Sometimes both adjusting the same controls… all the while the DOCTOR is speaking only to JACK and YAZ.

JACK
Doctor, were you always this rude!?

THE DOCTOR
(Startled and utterly baffled answers honestly)
Probably, not always, sometimes more so than others. really all depends on the face.
I thought I was more socially awkward this time, why do you ask?

JACK
You’re completely ignoring River!
(The Doctor’s face is clearly confused)
You know the one with space hair that helped in your rescue.

THE DOCTOR
*whispers loudly* Jack, are you seeing ghosts too?
That shouldn’t be possible...
Do you think you’ve developed telepathic abilities in your old age?
River is in The Library.
Wait, how do you know River anyway?

JACK
Time travelers, we have a tendency to run into each other,
and she’s right beside you!

THE DOCTOR
(looks to her right and she sees no one, because River is standing on her left)
You’re clearly confused Jack, there’s no one there.
Have you considered it’s time for glasses?

YAZ
Doctor, she’s not a ghost,
we are all seeing her.
She helped me find Jack.

The Doctor flabbergasted slowly turns to face River on her left and puts her hand on her cheek.

THE DOCTOR>
You’re here, really?
They’re not... They are seeing you too, this time?

RIVER
Hello, Sweetie!

River soon finds herself engulfed in a “bear” hug….if that “bear” was a koala.
