Season 1 Quotes

01x01 - A Study in Pink Season 1 / Episode 1: - A Study in Pink

Sherlock Holmes: If you were dying, if you'd been murdered, in your very last few seconds, what would you say?
Dr John Watson: "Please, God, let me live."
Sherlock Holmes: Oh, use your imagination!
Dr John Watson: [having recently returned from battle] I don't have to.
01x01 - A Study in Pink Season 1 / Episode 1: - A Study in Pink

Dr John Watson: Um, Sergeant Donovan's just been explaining... everything. The... two pills... Dreadful business, isn't it? Dreadful.
Sherlock Holmes: [quietly] Good shot.
Dr John Watson: Yes. Yes, must have been. Through that window.
Sherlock Holmes: Well, *you'd* know... Need to get the powder burns out of your fingers. I don't suppose you'd serve time for this, but let's avoid the court case. [pause] Are you all right?
Dr John Watson: Yes, of course I'm all right.
Sherlock Holmes: Well you have just killed a man.
Dr John Watson: Yes, I... That's true. But he wasn't a very nice man.
Sherlock Holmes: No. No, he wasn't, really, was he?
Dr John Watson: No, frankly, a bloody awful cabbie.
Sherlock Holmes: [chuckles with John] That's true, he was a bad cabbie. You should have seen the route he took us to get here.
Dr John Watson: [laughing] Stop! We can't giggle, it's a crime scene. Stop it.
Sherlock Holmes: You're the one who shot him. Don't blame me.
Dr John Watson: Keep your voice down! Sorry, it's just, um, nerves, I think.
Sherlock Holmes: Sorry.
Dr John Watson: You were going to take that damn pill, weren't you?
Sherlock Holmes: Course I wasn't. Biding my time. Knew you'd turn up.
Dr John Watson: No, you didn't. That's how you get your kicks, isn't it? You risk your life to prove you're clever.
Sherlock Holmes: Why would I do that?
Dr John Watson: Because you're an idiot.
Sherlock Holmes: Dinner?
Dr John Watson: Starving.

Season 1 Trivia

  • Episode 03 - Goof (factual errors): Hanging is not a method of execution practiced in Belarus. The only method of execution used is execution by shooting.
  • Episode 01 - Stanley Townsend replaced Joseph Long who played Angelo in the unaired pilot.
  • Episode 01 - Sherlock kissing Mrs. Hudson on the cheek wasn't scripted. Benedict Cumberbatch had known Una Stubbs since he was very young, and it was his reaction on being able to work with someone who was like a mother to him.
  • Episode 02 - Goof (revealing mistake): When Shan is taunting Watson with her pistol, she loads it in front of him, and racks the slide to load a round into the chamber (albeit, she didn't rack it far enough back to actually do so). A few moments later, when Holmes makes his appearance, Shan is seen racking the slide again.
  • Episode 02 - Goof (revealing mistake): The "Walther P5" used by the General is actually an ME8 blank firing pistol made in Italy.
