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.

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

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

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.

Gregson: Where is Sherlock?
Bell: He was out with some friends. I sent a radio car to get him.
Gregson: [dubiously] Since when does he have friends?
Joan: These are more 'exercise partners'...

I can't accept an alibi from anyone with that particular hairstyle.


Elementary Quotes

Holmes: Bella, one member of a murder conspiracy is in jail. The second walks free. The cost of catching him is incarcerating his brother for unrelated crimes. Crimes for which I, of all people, should have some understanding. Is it right to let the second man walk free?
Bella: I don't understand the question. Can I have more information?
