Episode Quotes
(Sherolock's radios and scanners wake Watson)
Sherlock: Slow week, at least in regards to murder and mayhem. Captain Gregson hasn't called once.
Sherlock: Maybe some lunatic will put his mother in law in a wood chipper; give you something to do today.
Sherlock: (Crosses his fingers)

(Sherlock tells Watson to forget about going to dinner with his father.)
Sherlock: My father does not care about me. He does what he does out of a sense of familial obligation. There is a big difference.
... Fool me once shame on you. Fool me ad nauseam... (Bell interupts)

(Watson attempts to get close and understand Sherlock.)
Sherlock: Since your a disgraced ex-surgeon and not a disgraced ex-psychologist what say you stop analyzing me? Okay?
