Sherlock Holmes: [In their apartment, reading the latest tabloids] "Boffin"! "Boffin Sherlock Holmes"!
John Watson: Everybody gets one.
Sherlock Holmes: One what?
John Watson: Tabloid nickname. "Subo." "Nasty Nick." Shouldn't worry: I'll probably get one soon.
Sherlock Holmes: Page five, column six, first sentence. Why is it always the *hat* photograph?
John Watson: "*Bachelor* John Watson"? "Bachelor"? What the hell are they implying?
Sherlock Holmes: What kind of hat is it anyway? Is it a cap? Why has it got two fronts?
John Watson: It's a deerstalker. "Frequently seen in the company of *bachelor* John Watson."
Sherlock Holmes: How do you stalk a deer with a hat? What are you going to do, throw it?
John Watson: "*Confirmed* bachelor..."
Sherlock Holmes: Some sort of death frisbee?
John Watson: Okay, this is too much. We've got to be more careful.
Sherlock Holmes: It's got flaps. *Ear* flaps! It's an *ear* hat, John! [Throws the hat to John] What do you mean, "more careful"?
John Watson: I mean, this isn't a deerstalker now, it's a Sherlock Holmes hat. I mean, you're not exactly a *private* detective any more! You're this far from famous!
Sherlock Holmes: Oh, it'll pass.
02x01 - A Scandal in Belgravia Season 2 / Episode 1: - A Scandal in Belgravia
