    • Holmes: (asks Watson to be his partner) See, this is an important decision, and I encourage you to discuss it with others. Explain what you have been to me and what I believe you can be to me. Hmm. Partner. And lest you think that this is an act of, uh, charity, a gift from a grateful client, let me assure you, it is not. I am... better with you, Watson. Um, I'm sharper, I'm more focused. Difficult to say why, exactly. Perhaps, in time, I'll solve that, as well.

    • Holmes: It's funny detective. The second I heard about the attempt on your life, I dove into your case history. I though it'd be only a matter of time before the culprit's identity presented itself. I was wrong. You've done excellent work over the years. Made a lot of enemies. There's no shortage of people who would like to see you dead.
      Bell: You say it like it's a good thing.
      Holmes: Well, there is, in my humble opinion, no greater compliment an investigator can receive. Speaks to the quality of your work.

    • Watson: (after Sherlock's fake attack she falls over and realizes the attacker is Sherlock) What is your damage?
      Holmes: Look, given that you were held at gunpoint in this very room little over a week ago, I thought, perhaps, a test of your ability to defend yourself was in order. It was. You have much to learn about the art of self-preservation.
      Watson: Okay, if you ever do that again, I swear--
      Holmes: You'll what? Fall over again?
