Watson: (after Holmes got played by Moriarty) You couldn't have known.
Holmes: Yeah, you know, that's what idiots tell themselves when they've been outsmarted. Twice Moriarty has had me in his sights and twice he's let me go. Once when he hired Gottlieb to kill me, and again this morning. I don't know what his game is.
Watson: It seems like maybe you're the game.
Holmes: When I pursued Moran my entire life I had made one meaningful connection. That was with Irene Adler. You were preparing to take on a new client, I had every reason to believe that I would be returning to the solitary methods of old. Since then, we've entered into a partnership. It's an arrangement which I find very rewarding. You're an interesting project, and I-I enjoy watching your progress. The thing that's different about me, empirically speaking is you.
Watson: That is one of the nicest things anyone has ever said to me.
Holmes: As I said, it's an empirical observation.
Holmes: (during the clandestine autopsy) Oh, that's lovely. You really are quite skilled, Watson.
Watson: No. I am dissecting a body in the middle of the night. We are not having a moment.
