What I mean when I say “I can’t do that”- Anxiety Version:
- I am unable to do that
- I am too stressed out to do that
- I cannot face the humiliation of attempting to do that
- My body will physically not allow me to do that
- I am on the verge of a panic attack
- I cannot do that
What people hear:
- I am unwilling to do that
- I am just shy
- I am overreacting
- I am lazy
- I need to get more experience in social situation to help my anxiety
- I need a push
- I don’t want to do that

I thought I was beyond being surprised by how awful Teen Wolf has become, but then… this.
This? This right here?
This perfectly explains the declining quality of the show.
That’s actually a running joke on set. Whenever someone’s like, “I don’t understand why my character would do this,” or, “This feels awkward,” the director — or whoever — will be like, “Guys, this is a show about werewolves. Just do it.”
School Reunion - Behind the Scenes
Below are excerpts from Benjamin Cook’s article in DWM #369
“THWACK!” is the sound that K9 makes as he collides with a kitchen unit.
“Hoo-hoo, yessssss!” is the sound that David Tennant makes as he watches K9 collide with a kitchen unit. He’s the Doctor, so he really should know better.
“Cut!” is the sound that the director, James Hawes, makes before breaking into a fit of giggles. “Sorry folks, he’s done it again.”
“I’m laughing through my tears,” admits Elisabeth, as the cast and crew all collapse in hysterics - except, perhaps, for the producer, Phil Collinson, who has a schedule to keep. No, wait, Phil is laughing too.
“Did you catch that, Doctor Who Magazine?” hollers James.
“If I was a bit smaller,” chuckles David, pointing at K9 (who’d probably be very embarrassed were he a real dog), “I’d get inside him and do this scene myself!”
[Elisabeth on working with David and Billie]
“David’s a lovely hugger. He’s very tactile with everyone. I knew that he had been a fan of Doctor Who when he was a little boy, so that was lovely. That actually made it a lot sweeter. And I’m so pleased for Billie, because, as the assistant, you were always totally overshadowed; at last, someone realizes the importance of the assistant. Billie is very warm, very immediate.”
“The energy that Billie and David have is remarkable. I saw David in the gym the other day: he was almost turning summersaults on the ropes. He’s very fit. He runs like a bloody bat out of hell.”

New World of Who (2x10)
“Finally they get to this wrecked, deserted, nighttime, Dalek-invaded street, civilazation gone. And from the greatest possible distance, there they are: her with her great big gun and him with the TARDIS. And they run towards each other, like the biggest romance you’ve ever seen. - Russell T. Davies
