A piercing gaze or just the right enunciation of the word “Jack” and he snapped to attention like the good soldier he was. What chance did an amnesiac Time Agent have against the moral authority of a Time Lord?

He’d done the right thing, so why does scolding Jack Harkness make him feel like he’s lost his way?
Oh Jack, if only you knew?
