I mean ... it really comes down to just this, Mrs. Powell. What do you think you deserve?

Sherlock

I worried in the aftermath of trauma that you might be ... overadjusting. That moving back might not be the progression you believe it to be, but it might be a regression, a retreat into the safety of the known.

Watson: Do you want me to live here or not?

Sherlock: It isn't my world. It's our world.

Bell: What am I missing?
Holmes: Everything that matters.

Imagine sitting for a portrait today. Hubris practically leaks off the canvas.

Sherlock

Don't talk twaddle … I just want to maintain focus.
