Ten with kitten

I was just thinking...

We were talking at work about how Sontarans look like potatoes, and it reminded me of this scene from "The Sontaran Strategem", which we watched a couple of weeks ago:

Ross: He's like a potato. A baked potato. A talking baked potato.
The Doctor: Now, Ross, don't be rude. You look like a pink weasel to him.

And occurred to me how completely different DW fanfiction would be today if only the Doctor had said that in "New Earth":

Rose: They're cats.
The Doctor: Now, don't stare. Look what you look like to them, all... pink weasel.
