  • Quotes

    • Watson: Hey, I was just about to call you. You okay?
      Holmes: I believe I've just made a rapprochement with my brother.
      Watson: Oh, that's great.
      Holmes: He used a homemade explosive device to destroy what was left of my things.
      Watson: Ah. Sounds like maybe he's a little more like you than you thought.
      Holmes: Art in the blood, Watson. It takes the strangest forms.

    • Watson: You didn't tell me that one of your brother's restaurants had two Michelin Stars.
      Holmes: I didn't tell you that my brother was a corporal entity.

    • Mycroft: You must be learning a great deal from him.
      Watson: I am.
      Mycroft: How else would you put up with him?
      Watson: Uh, I don't put up with him. We get along, basically. He's a friend.
      Mycroft: Sherlock doesn't have friends.
      Watson: Yesterday I would've told you he doesn't have a brother. But he does.
      Mycroft: Does he?
      Watson: He's changed a lot.
      Mycroft: People often say that about addicts, don't they? "He's changed, he's better now." Sherlock is addicted to being himself.

    • Watson: Frankly, I'm more interested in the fact that you never mentioned that you had a brother.
      Holmes: Why would I?
      Watson: Um, because he's family?
      Holmes: Our relationship is entirely genetic.
