Watson: Why didn't you tell me when I came to you yesterday?
Holmes: I wanted you to learn to trust your own instincts. Good detective knows that every task, every interaction, no matter how seemingly banal, has the potential to contain multitudes. I live my life alert to this possibility. I expect my colleagues to do the same.
Mr. Lydon: I sit before you a lucid man. Vital, I might say. I hold 18 patents and I can do 11 pull-ups at age 58.
Holmes: And I own exactly 16 forks. I'm not entirely sure what we're supposed to be comparing.
Holmes: You mustn't allow your failure to discourage you.
Watson: Didn't fail. Not discouraged.
Holmes: You didn't solve the case, but you did notice the incongruity of the scuff marks. The next step is learning to extrapolate your way to the truth. Detection is not just a skill, Watson. It's a point of view. You must train yourself to be alert to the bizarre, the unusual, that which has no place in any given picture.
