He’s such a tease.
I shouldn’t let it get to me, but it still does.
“It wasn’t just because he knew how much the TARDIS meant to the Doctor. Rory knew what it was like, or at least mostly what it was like, to have what he loved most in the world tied up in a form he couldn’t communicate with, in a big old box he could talk with but that would never talk back, that he could do nothing for except try and protect, for even longer than the Doctor has been with the TARDIS.
So when the TARDIS matrix is reintegrating into the ship, Rory wasn’t just seeing how horrible it was for the Doctor, in the way that Amy was, in that human way that’s compassionate and wonderful but could never truly begin to comprehend the way the Doctor must feel, but Rory was also thinking about, if after all of that, what if Amy had to go back in the Pandorica? Back in that box? How horrible it would feel, but how much he’d still love her and do everything in his power to protect her? So I think when Rory’s tearing up, it isn’t just because he loves and admires the Doctor and is sympathizing with him, but because he’s empathizing with him, because he understands in that moment how he feels, more than anyone else in the universe probably could.” — Kati
