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.
