Right! And that was followed by a distant scream. Clara reacted, and the Doctor told her, "Brave heart, Clara!"
I don't know if it's just my American ears but it's a shame these funny lines fly by so fast that it's hard to make out a lot of times. I often find myself missing things without another viewing (or is that their sinister plan to air more advertising ).
Yeah ... that's why we watch it on the computer. You can tell when the rest of the family is wearing the same confused expression you think is on your face that something British just got in your ears and you need to jog back five seconds to work it out.

I don't think I'm being paranoid when I suggest that Moffat and Smith do this deliberately for American audiences:
"Hey Matt! Take a look at this line!"

"Oy gum, Steven! That'll give 'em Yanks a bit of a mystery!"

"How fast do you think you can say it?"

"Twice as fast as they'll ever hear it!"

"Great! I'll put another bit in, then!"

Bastards. There's a reason we kicked 'em out!
