  • Quotes

    • Clarke: So, who are you guys, anyway?
      Holmes: My name is Sherlock Holmes. I am a temporarily suspended consultant for the NYPD. This is Joan Watson. She keeps me from doing heroin. And you would be?

    • Watson: You wanna tell me whose house this is?
      Holmes: Zapruder.
      Watson: Oh. Is that the guy you were talking about this morning? The conspiracy theorist?
      Holmes: His real name is Len Pontecorvo. He didn't raise to my bait earlier. Most unlike the man. I e-mailed several of his colleagues in Swirl-Theory. Turns out, no one has heard from him since Sunday.
      Watson: Oh, so you decided to break into his house.
      Holmes: Well, his compatriots feared the worst, black bagged by the KGB, taken to a secret NASA prison.
      Watson: Please don't tell me you agree.
      Holmes: Of course not. NASA doesn't maintain prisons. Everyone knows that.

    • Holmes: The idea that Irene was murdered by a shadowy kingpin that no one's ever seen or heard of sounded crazy to me too. But there may be a pattern here. A trail of bread crumbs that leads to a great criminal mind.
      Watson: And how is Napoleon Bonaparte involved?
      Holmes: By my fifth night without sleep, I may have been reaching.

    • Holmes: I regret that circumstances caused me to endanger our relationship. It was a price I was willing to pay for revenge. As was the likelihood of going to prison. As it turns out, there's no revenge to be had. Given that, it serves no one's interest for you to keep me from my work.
      Gregson: Who the hell are you?
      Holmes: I beg your pardon?
      Gregson: 'Cause obviously, you're not the person I thought you were.
      Holmes: I don't know how to answer that question.
      Gregson: You don't let anyone into your life that's not constantly concerned with you. What kind of mood you're in, whether you're getting high or not, whether you're gonna work like an adult or throw a temper tantrum. You know what? Most of the time, you're worth it, because you are special. Damned if you don't know it. But you are. You want to work cases? You're right. I can't say no. Don't think for a minute that I'm ever gonna forget that you were planning to murder someone on my watch. And don't think that I'm ever gonna really trust you again.
      Holmes: You don't need to trust me to benefit from my intellect, do you?
      Gregson: No, I don't. But I do need to get something out of my system. (punches him in the gut) Welcome back.

    • Watson: (about apologizing to Captain Gregson) There's no part of you that feels even a little bad about what you did?
      Holmes: I don't want to discuss this.
      Watson: Sometimes you have to talk about things that make you feel uncomfortable.
      Holmes: I won't feel uncomfortable, you will.
      Watson: Why?
      Holmes: I'm smarter than everyone I meet, Watson. I know it's bad form to say that, but in my case, it's a fact. Allowances have to be made.
      Watson: Allowances?
      Holmes: It's true I have wronged Captain Gregson. It was the cost of revenge, and I incurred it willingly. The larger question is how does my suspension benefit the city? If the role of the public servant is to keep an eye on the greater good, then why keep me from my work? My work is the greater good. See, you're uncomfortable.
