Episode Quotes
(Sherlock lists some preliminary deductions)
Bell: Yeah, tell me something I don't know.
Sherlock: A pig's orgasm lasts up to thirty minutes.

(Watson brings Sherlock some tea with herbs instead of the coffee he'd asked for.)
Sherlock: All due respect to your mother, I would prefer something proven by a scientific method.
Watson: The herbs in that tea have been proven scientifically to inhibit the movement of neutrophils, improve the function of protective cilia, and contribute to longer lasting more vasodilated erections.
Sherlock: By your mother?
Watson: Just shut up and drink it.
