“If you have what you say you have, I will make you rich. If you don’t, I’ll make you into shoes.”

‘A Scandal in Belgravia’




“People have died.”

“That’s what people DO!”

‘The Great Game’




““Genius detective proved to be a fraud.” I read it in the paper so it must be true. I love newspapers. Fairy tales… and pretty grim ones too.”

‘The Reichenbach Fall’




“You can be honest. Is it noticeable? Well, maybe I could back-comb.”

‘The Abominable Bride’




“Hullo. Are you ready for the story? This is the story of Sir Boast-a-lot. Sir Boast-a-lot was the bravest and cleverest knight at the Round Table. But soon the other knights began to grow tired of his stories about how brave he was and how many dragons he’d slain. And soon they began to wonder, Are Sir Boast-a-lot’s stories even true? Oh no…

So one of the knights went to King Arthur and said, “I don’t believe Sir Boast-a-lot’s stories. He’s just a big old liar who makes things up to make himself look good.” And then, even the king began to wonder. But that wasn’t the end of Sir Boast-a-lot’s problem. No. That wasn’t the Final Problem. The end.”

‘The Reichenbach Fall’
