    • Holmes: Ugh, what-what is that? I asked for coffee.
      Watson: Well, you asked for coffee, but you got tea.
      Holmes: No, I'm British, this is not tea.
      Watson: There's some traditional Chinese herbs in there. I poked around the stalls in Chinatown while I was waiting for you. I found the ingredients for the same tea my mom used to make me when I was sick.
      Holmes: Well, all due respect to your mother, I would prefer something proven by a scientific method.
      Watson: The herbs in that tea have been proven scientifically to inhibit the movement of neutrophils, improve the function of protective cilia, and contribute to longer-lasting, more vasodilated erections.
      Holmes: By your mother?
      Watson: Just shut up and drink it.

    • Holmes: No shell casings, no skull fragments, no gray matter. He was killed elsewhere, and then dumped here.
      Bell: Yeah, tell me something I don't know.
      Holmes: A pig's orgasm lasts up to 30 minutes.

      holmes and watson always have a kind of conflict thing going because holmes has this with everybody...his intellect and with this story his lack of recovery(he is sober but not recovered)keeps him in uneasy relationships. he disregards the general public and tollerates those he must...it's all part of what those of us who are sherlock holmes fans love about him...i find the police having to disregard his therories as impossible or strange or incomplete much more irritating...he will likely come to like/love watson,but be loath to let her/him or anyone else know it...

      WHy do all the characters seem to despise each other? It's fake conflict between Holmes and Watson.
