When Amy wakes to find the Doctor carrying a euphonium guiltily, she uses the opportunity to ask a question that has been bothering her for a long time.
The Doctor returns with a euphonium from another night out with River Song. Amy Pond, wide awake and sitting in her nightie on the stairs, catches him. She convinces him to tell her what he does while he’s out at night, then says why she is finding it hard to sleep lately: her life doesn’t make any sense. She is particularly confused as to how she can remember two versions of her life, one without her parents and one with. The Doctor comforts her and reminds her of the saddest moment of her life. It was at a fair when she dropped an ice cream. While recalling the event, she suddenly remembers a woman with red hair, dressed in a nightie, come to give her a new ice cream. When she finishes the anecdote, the Doctor is by the doors, ready to go with her to the fair.
- Amy says she spent a long time alone with the Doctor before her marriage, which explains their wide range of adventures in both Doctor Who Adventures and Doctor Who Magazine, as well as The Adventure Games.
