    • Mycroft: I owe you an apology. Obviously, I should've told you.
      Holmes: You needed bone marrow. A sibling is the most likely match by far.
      Mycroft: I'm trying to be less stubborn now. I think ... I hope my illness has made me a more compassionate, better person.
      Holmes: Well, of course you do. You're following the same narrative all venal people do when they get sick.
      Mycroft: A lot of people may go through the same thing, but it doesn't make it less real.

    • Holmes: (at the Narcotics Anonymous meeting) My-my, my senses are unusually well, one could even say unnaturally keen. And ours is an era of distraction. It's, uh, a punishing drumbeat of constant input. This-this cacophony which follows us into our homes and into our beds and seeps into our into-into our souls, for want of a better word. For a long time, uh, there was only one poultice for my raw nerve endings, and that was, uh, copious drug use. So in my less productive moments, I'm given to wonder if I'd just been born when it was a little quieter out there, would I have even become an addict in the first place? Might I have been more focused? A more fully realized person?
