Dr. John Watson: There are lives at stake... Sherlock. Actual human li... Jus-just so I know, do you care about that at all?

Sherlock Holmes: Will caring about them help save them?

Dr. John Watson: Nope.

Sherlock Holmes: Then I'll continue not to make that mistake.

Dr. John Watson: And you find that easy, do you?

Sherlock Holmes: Yes. Very. Is that news to you?

Dr. John Watson: No. No.

Sherlock Holmes: [pause] I've disappointed you.

Dr. John Watson: That's good... that's a good deduction, yeah.

Sherlock Holmes: Don't make people into heroes, John. Heroes don't exist, and if they did, I wouldn't be one of them.

Jim Moriarty: Do you know what happens if you don't leave me alone, Sherlock?... To you?

Sherlock Holmes: Oh, let me guess. I get killed?

Jim Moriarty: Kill you? N... No, don't be obvious. I mean, I'm going to kill you anyway, some day. I don't want to rush it, though. I'm saving it up for something special. No, no, no, no, no. If you don't stop prying... I'll burn you.

[pause]

Jim Moriarty: I will burn... the *heart* out of you.

Sherlock Holmes: I have been reliably informed that I don't have one.

Jim Moriarty: But we both know that's not quite true.

Dr. John Watson: [John arrives home to find Sherlock shooting at a smiley on the wall] What the *hell* are you doing?

Sherlock Holmes: [mumbles] Bored.

Dr. John Watson: What?

Sherlock Holmes: Bored!

Dr. John Watson: [seeing Sherlock raise the gun again] No...

Sherlock Holmes: Bored! Bored! I don't know what's got into the criminal classes. Good job I'm not one of them.

Dr. John Watson: So you take it out on the wall?

Sherlock Holmes: Ah, the wall had it coming.

Jim Moriarty: I've shown you what I can do. I cut loose all those people, all those little problems, even thirty million quid, just to get you to come out and play. So take this as a friendly warning... my dear. Back off. Although, I have loved this, this little game of ours. Playing Jim from I.T. Playing gay. Did you like the little touch with the underwear?

Sherlock Holmes: People have died.

Jim Moriarty: [shouting] That's what people *do*!

[Opens refrigerator]

Dr. John Watson: Oh, f...!

Sherlock Holmes: [From other room] Just tea for me, thanks.

Dr. John Watson: No, there's a head in the fridge.

Sherlock Holmes: Yes?

Dr. John Watson: A bloody head!

Sherlock Holmes: Well, where else was I supposed to put it? You don't mind, do you?

Sherlock Holmes: I see you've written up the taxi driver case.

Dr. John Watson: Er... yes.

Sherlock Holmes: A Study In Pink. Nice.

Dr. John Watson: Well, you know. Pink lady, pink case, pink phone. There was a lot of pink. Did you like it?

Sherlock Holmes: Um... no.

Dr. John Watson: Why not? I thought you'd be flattered?

Sherlock Holmes: Flattered? "Sherlock sees through everything and everyone in seconds. What's incredible, though, is how spectacularly ignorant he is about some things."

Dr. John Watson: Now hang on a minute, I didn't mean that in...

Sherlock Holmes: Oh, you meant "spectacularly ignorant" in a nice way! Look, it doesn't matter to me who's Prime Minister or...

Dr. John Watson: Yeah, I know

Sherlock Holmes: ...who's sleeping with who...

Dr. John Watson: [quietly] Whether the Earth goes round the Sun.

Sherlock Holmes: Oh God, that again. It's not important!

Dr. John Watson: Not impor...? It's primary school stuff. How can you not know that?

Dr. John Watson: You know, I'm still waiting.

Sherlock Holmes: Hm?

Dr. John Watson: For you to admit that a little knowledge of the solar system and you'd have cleared up the fake painting a lot quicker.

Sherlock Holmes: It didn't do you any good, did it?

Dr. John Watson: No, but I'm not the world's only consulting detective.

Sherlock Holmes: True.

Jim Moriarty: Sorry, boys! I'm *so* changeable! It is a weakness with me, but to be fair to myself, it is my only weakness. You can't be allowed to continue. You just can't. I would try to convince you, but everything I have to say has already crossed your mind.

[Sherlock glances at John, who gives a small, almost imperceptible nod]

Sherlock Holmes: Probably my answer has crossed yours.

Miss Wenceslas: [seeing Sherlock, who is disguised as a security guard, staring at a painting] Don't you have something to do?

Sherlock Holmes: Just admiring the view.

Miss Wenceslas: Yes, lovely. Now go back to work. We open tonight.

Sherlock Holmes: Doesn't it bother you?

Miss Wenceslas: What?

Sherlock Holmes: That the painting's a fake?

Miss Wenceslas: What?

Sherlock Holmes: It's a fake. It has to be. It's the only possible explanation. You are in charge, aren't you, Miss Wenceslas?

Miss Wenceslas: Who are you?

Sherlock Holmes: Alex Woodbridge knew that the painting was a fake, so somebody sent the Golem to take care of him. Was it you?

Miss Wenceslas: Golem? What the hell are you talking about?

Sherlock Holmes: Are you working for someone else? Did you fake it for them?

Miss Wenceslas: It's not a fake.

Sherlock Holmes: It is a fake. I don't know why. But there's something wrong with it, there has to be.

Miss Wenceslas: What the hell are you on about? You know I could have you sacked on the spot.

Sherlock Holmes: Not a problem.

Miss Wenceslas: No?

Sherlock Holmes: No, I don't work here, you see. Just popped in to give you a bit of friendly advice.

Miss Wenceslas: How did you get in?

Sherlock Holmes: [scoffs] Please.

Miss Wenceslas: I want to know.

Sherlock Holmes: The art of disguise is knowing how to hide in plain sight.

Dr. John Watson: What?

Sherlock Holmes: Nothing.

Sherlock Holmes: Not that again. It's not important.

John Watson: But it's the solar system!

Sherlock Holmes: [Groans] Oh, hell! What does that matter? So we go round the Sun! If we went round the Moon, or round and round the garden like a teddy bear, it wouldn't make any difference.
