Persuader

PersuaderRose leaned against one of the console room support columns and interrupted the Doctor's latest tirade against humanity.

"Doesn't anyone ever get the hump with you calling them stupid apes?"

The Doctor stood upright and thought for a moment. "Once."

"What happened?"

"Sunk her teeth into my leg until our difference of opinion was resolved. Ruined a perfectly good pair of trousers."

"She objected to being called stupid?"

The Doctor smiled. "Actually, she objected to being called an ape."

Rose picked up the Doctor's mallet, gently cradled its head. "Nice to know it's possible for you to learn new things."
