ETA: Actually, that last item might be an artifact of Eleven's speech patterns rather than his truly using them interchangeably; I certainly don't care to watch again to check. But I left out the whole "your modern Western Earth wedding ring will naturally convey to this unknown alien automated quasi-holographic system that you have a heterosexual pair-bond with her patient and are therefore not a threat" nonsense! Why oh why do people write science fiction if they can't be bothered to follow through with the implications of the elements they introduce? It's like this whole season is a showcase for privilege-and-centrism fail. Bah.
