Scene from Time War: Just a Minute

Work Text:

HOST: ...and the Doctor has yet to score. Next up, it's the Daleks, with the subject "exterminate". You have sixty seconds to tell us a bit about that, starting now.

DALEKS: EXTERMINATE! EXTERMINATE!

*Doctor buzzes*

DOCTOR: Repetition.

DALEKS: YOU ARE ALLOWED TO REPEAT THE WORD THAT IS ON THE CARD.

DOCTOR: Oh. Oh yes, you're quite right.

HOST: They are indeed! That's another point for the Daleks, extending a commanding lead. Daleks, you have fifty-nine seconds, starting now.

DALEKS: EXTERMINATE! EXTERMINATE! EXTERMINATE! EXTERMINATE! EXTERMIN-

*Doctor buzzes*

DOCTOR: Hang on. Are they really just allowed to repeat what's on the card again and again?

*Audience laughs*

DOCTOR: I was being serious!

HOST: And just then was a repetition of "again". Another point to the Daleks.

DOCTOR: But if they can just repeat it until the minute's up, then. Surely they'll just win?

HOST: Oh yes! It's very easy for the Daleks to win! Fifty-six seconds, on "exterminate". Starting now.
