“Don’t judge a person by the appendages,” the Doctor told Martha firmly. “Not everyone has two arms, two legs, and one head, you know, in fact most races don’t. On some planets this shape,” he gestured from Martha to himself and back again, “would be completely impractical. There’s nothing wrong with having three heads and too many tentacles to count. It’s that kind of prejudgement about others that keeps getting you humans into trouble.”
“It’s not the shape that bothers me,” Martha replied. “It’s the fact that it’s trying to pull my arms off!”
“Oh, that. Just a minor misunderstanding!”
