Summary: Imprisoned once again, the Doctor and his companions find time hangs heavy on their hands.
Zoë yawned. "How long are they going to keep us here, anyway?"
"As long as they like," the Doctor replied serenely.
"Well, it's very boring." She shifted her position, causing a fusillade of detonations from her dress.
"Och, Zoë, will you stop fidgeting?" Jamie complained. "I canna sleep wi' that racket going on."
"Well, there are always other ways to pass the time," the Doctor said. He squeezed Zoë's cuff between his fingers, until a bubble burst. "Try it, Jamie, it's very therapeutic."
Pop. "Aye, it is."
Zoë couldn't help giggling. "Just be careful what you squeeze," she warned them.
