You... you told me once that you weren't a hero. Umm,
there were times I didn't even think you were human. But let me tell
you this, you were the best man, the most human... human being that
I've ever known, and no-one will ever convince me that you told me a
lie, so there. I was so alone, and I owe you so much. But, please,
there's just one more thing, one more thing, one more miracle,
Sherlock, for me. Don't be... dead. Would you do that just for me?
Just stop it. Stop this.

John Watson

Moriarty: How hard do you find it, having to say "I don't know?"
Sherlock Holmes: I don't know.

Sherlock Holmes: James Moriarty is for hire.
Prosecuting Barrister: A tradesman?
Sherlock Holmes: Yes.
Prosecuting Barrister: But not the sort who'd fix your heating?
Sherlock Holmes: No, the sort who'd plant a bomb or stage an
assassination. But I'm sure he'd make a decent job of your boiler.

Sherlock Holmes: I'm confident the star witness at the trial should
come across as intelligent.
John Watson: Intelligent, fine. Let's give smart ass a wide berth.
Sherlock Holmes: [pause] I'll just be myself.
John Watson: Are you listening to me?

Sherlock Holmes: There are two types of fans.
Kitty Reilly: Oh?
Sherlock Holmes: Catch me before I kill again. Type A.
Kitty Reilly: Uh-huh. Whats type B?
Sherlock Holmes: Your bedrooms just a taxi ride away.

Sherlock Holmes: Oh, John, I envy you so much.
Dr. John Watson: You envy me?
Sherlock Holmes: Your mind, it's so placid, straight-forward, barely
used. Mine's like an engine, racing out of control. A rocket, tearing
itself to pieces, trapped on the launch pad. I need a case!

Sherlock Holmes: John? John! You are amazing, you are fantastic!
Dr. John Watson: Yes, alright, don't overdo it.
Sherlock Holmes: You'll never be the most luminous of people, but as a
conductor of light, you're unbeatable!
Dr. John Watson: Cheers. What?

Sherlock Holmes: How about Louise Mortimer? Did you get anywhere with her?
Dr. John Watson: No.
Sherlock Holmes: Too bad. Did you get any information?
Dr. John Watson: Oh, you're being funny now.
Sherlock Holmes: Thought I might break the ice a bit.
Dr. John Watson: Funny doesn't suit you. I'd stick to ice.

Dr. John Watson: Can we please not do this this time?
Sherlock Holmes: Do what?
Dr. John Watson: You being all mysterious with your - cheekbones. And
turning your coat collar up so you look cool.

Sherlock Holmes: I didn't really ask, Dr. Franklyn, but what exactly
do you do here?
Dr. Franklyn: Oh, Mr. Holmes, I'd love to tell you. But then of
course, I'd have to kill you.
Sherlock Holmes: That would be tremendously ambitious of you.

Dr. John Watson: What're you talking about, you're busy? You don't
have a case! A minute ago you were complaining...
Sherlock Holmes: Bluebell, John! I've got Bluebell, the case of the
vanishing glow-in-the-dark rabbit. NATO's in an uproar.

DI Lestrade: And exactly how many times did he fall out of a window?
Sherlock Holmes: Oh, it's all a bit of a blur, detective inspector. I
lost count.

Sherlock Season 2 Quotes

Somebody loves you! If I had to punch that face, I'd
avoid the nose and teeth too.

Irene Adler

like that! Family is all we have in the end, Mycroft Holmes!
Mycroft Holmes: Oh shut up, Mrs. Hudson!
Sherlock and John: [furious] Mycroft!
Mycroft Holmes: [long pause] Apologies.
Mrs. Hudson: Thank you.
Sherlock: Though, do indeed shut up.
