  • Quotes

    • Watson: (to Holmes, about Agent Drummond) She predicted your drug problem. So what? You got clean. You picked up your career right where you left off. And you even made a friend, something that Kathryn claimed in her article was virtually impossible. Me. I'm talking about me. Look, my point is that, the only thing that anyone can predict about people with 100 percent certainty is that they'll change. And anyone who thinks otherwise is kidding themselves.

    • Ennis: You want me to stop doing what I'm doing, Captain Gregson of the NYPD? All you have to do is give me Kathryn Drummond.
      Holmes: I think his demands are quite reasonable.

    • Holmes: (sees Drummond) Oh, speaking of vermin.
      Watson: What is it with you and that woman? It's obviously more than just hating profilers.
      Holmes: If you're asking if we had sex, the answer is yes, obviously.
      Watson: Oh, so she's an ex?
      Holmes: More like a C, C-plus at best. We had an arrangement while she was in London, similar to the arrangement I have with other women here in New York. We performed the act of love loudly and repeatedly, without any actual love, or even any like. I would describe it as an act of self-love were it not for the fact that she was technically present.
      Watson: I get it.

    • Watson: (about Agent Drummond) You know her?
      Holmes: We worked together when an American serial killer came to London. She's a buffoon. All profilers are. They're snake oil salesmen who cast maladjusted closet cases as criminal geniuses in the media. The profilers, in turn, can be super-geniuses when the killers are caught.
      Watson: Isn't profiling part of what you do?
      Holmes: I deduce. Enormous difference.
