Sherlock Holmes

In my homage to Sherlock I’m including some of the best quotes of the new series.  Feel free to add your own.


John Watson: Now hang on a minute, I didn’t mean that–

Sherlock Holmes: [sarcastic] Oh, you meant “spectacularly ignorant” in a nice way! Look, it doesn’t matter to me who’s Prime Minister, or who’s sleeping with who–

John Watson: [somewhat bitterly] Or that the earth goes around the sun.

Sherlock Holmes: Oh God, that again! It’s not important!

John Watson: Not important? It’s primary school stuff! How can you not know that?

Sherlock Holmes: Well, if I ever did, I’ve deleted it.

John Watson: “Deleted it”?

Sherlock Holmes: Listen: [gets up and points to his head] This is my hard-drive, and it only makes sense to put things in there that are useful. Really useful. Ordinary people fill their heads with all kinds of rubbish, and that makes it hard to get at the stuff that matters! Do you see?

John Watson: [brief silence; looks at Sherlock incredulously] But it’s the solar system!

Sherlock Holmes: [extremely irritated by now] Oh, hell! What does that matter?! So we go around the sun! If we went around the moon or round and round the garden like a teddy bear, it wouldn’t make any difference! All that matters to me is the work! Without that, my brain rots. Put that in your blog – or better still, stop inflicting your opinions on the world!
