Mason: So, why do you care? I'm just saying, he was a bad guy, now he's dead. You should go see a movie or something.
Joan: The people who killed him also killed his bodyguard and the valet who was getting his car.
Sherlock: And even if there were no innocent victims, no murder should go unsolved, and no murderer should walk free. To think otherwise is to descend into a pit of moral relativism.

Morland [regarding Sherlock]

Joan: A woman did this to you.
Sherlock: ...a highly-trained woman.

Joan: Were you two in a fight, or were you having sex?
Sherlock: The two aren't mutually exclusive...

Sherlock: I know, Father.
Morland: Know what?
Sherlock: Why you never mentioned your brush with death. Why you never asked me, the finest detective you know, for assistance. You believe that I'm the man who tried to kill you.

Oh, and if you have any lingering doubts, here's how you can be certain I'm not the one who tried to kill you -- you're alive!

Sherlock

Well, I've always found the best way to come at a haystack is with a pitchfork.

Sherlock

Do me a favor -- don't be too careful when you arrest them. Person who did this belongs down here.

Eugene

So, you'll break her nose, put her in the ER, but you draw the line at murder?
