For this to make any sense, you need to be familiar with the full recording of the Doctor's instructions to Martha in "Human Nature," not just the one shown in the episode. You can find it on YouTube.

Duster in hand, Martha pushed the door open just as Mr. Smith reached into the bowl and selected a fruit.

"Oh! Sir! Let me take that for you!"

Mr. Smith stared at her. "Whatever for, Martha?"

"You don't like pears. You told me to never let you eat one."

"When did I do that? I love pears. This harvest has been splendid. Thank you for bringing them."

"No! Don't!" But she was too late. He bit into the juicy green fruit, smiled, and toasted her with it.

Martha sighed, wincing to herself. He's going to hate me in two months.
