  • Quotes

    • Watson: I'm gonna go down to the precinct, see if I can lend a hand with whatever they're working on. You want to come?
      Holmes: No. Perfunctory investigation will do me no good, Watson. To clean out the cobwebs, I need something truly stimulating.

    • Bell: (to Holmes) Well, it's official. Captain just got the call. The gold incisor and a couple of the molars and the smaller pile of ash match Fred Kirby's dental records. Which means it took you all of ten minutes to identify a John Doe who'd been burnt to powder. That's got to be a record.

    • Holmes: Nothing will be handed out. Gold stars and a listing on the group's all-important Web site will be earned by members who complete a course of my own design. It's compulsory, not optional.
      Watson: You really think 1,200 dues-paying members are gonna sit still for that?
      Holmes: I don't believe they're gonna have a choice. I spent all of yesterday poring over the bylaws that they agreed to when they joined; NYOOPI is more than allowed to change its name and its standards. And any members that don't appreciate that kind of attention to detail will learn to. Or they'll forfeit their membership.

    • Holmes: The test, yes. I thought you would be honored to be the first ESOOPI member to attempt it.
      Watson: "List three suitable methods for determining the age of a fecal deposit on a" --This is the first question?
      Holmes: Two hours, Watson. (knocks on desk) Make me proud.
