Episode Quotes
(Sherlock lays out the foundation of the simple case before realizing that he is interested.)
Sherlock: Just to be certain, you want my assistance in solving this?
Gregson: Yeah. That a problem?
Sherlock: No, it's just... Due respect to Mr. Dempster, this is a garden variety robbery homicide. You find the phones, you catch the killers, so it's a bit... eh.. (Power goes out)
Officer: Hey Captain, it sounds like the whole city is dark, we're trying to figure out what's going on.
Sherlock: Well, if I have to solve this in the stone age I suppose it will be interesting after all.

(Sherlock and Watson argue about their upcoming "adventure" from inside a snowplow.)
Sherlock: Pam, I'm very sorry to do this, but we're commandeering this vehicle on behalf of the NYPD. Let's go.
Pam: (To Sherlock) You, get out. (To Watson) You, I can give a ride home to if you want.
Sherlock: (Frustrated, pulls out a stack of one hundred dollar bills.)Forget commandeering, lets just call it a rental shall we?

(Sherlock begins to realize exactly how complicated his simple robbery-homicide case was)
Sherlock: You have to admire the ingenuity of the plan. If they hadn't killed someone, I'd have half a mind to let them get away with it.

(Sherlock and Watson watch Bell's performance inside the interrogation room.)
Sherlock: Detective Bell once confided in me, he played Sky Masterson production of "Guys and Dolls". I have not until this moment imagined that he was any good. The stage's loss is New York City's gain.

Episode Goofs

During the "riot" there is a detective banging a chair in the hallway. In the next scene, which is in the open office, you can see the same detective rush out of an office chair and move towards the camera.
