Season 2 Quotes

02x01 - A Scandal in Belgravia Season 2 / Episode 1: - A Scandal in Belgravia

Sherlock Holmes: Shame on you, John Watson.
Dr. John Watson: Shame on me?
Sherlock Holmes: Mrs. Hudson leave Baker Street? England would fall!
02x02 - The Hounds of Baskerville Season 2 / Episode 2: - The Hounds of Baskerville

Henry Knight: I'm not sure you can help me, Mr. Holmes, since you find it all so funny.
Sherlock Holmes: Because of what happened last night.
Dr. John Watson: Why, what happened last night?
Henry Knight: How... how did you know?
Sherlock Holmes: I didn't know. I noticed. You came up from Devon on the first train this morning. You had a disappointing breakfast and a cup of black coffee. The girl in the seat across the aisle fancied you. Although you were initially keen, you've now changed your mind. You are, however, extremely anxious to have your first cigarette of the day. Sit down Mr. Knight and do please smoke. I'd be delighted.
Henry Knight: How on earth did you notice all that?
Dr. John Watson: It's not important.
Sherlock Holmes: Punched out holes where your ticket's been checked.
Dr. John Watson: Not now, Sherlock.
Sherlock Holmes: Oh, please, I've been cooped up here for ages.
Dr. John Watson: You're just showing off.
Sherlock Holmes: Of course! I am a show-off, that's what we do! Train napkin that you used to mop up the spill of the coffee. Strength of the stain says you didn't take milk. The traces of ketchup on it and around your lips and on your sleeve - cooked breakfast, or the nearest thing those trains can manage. Probably a sandwich.
Henry Knight: How did you know it was disappointing?
Sherlock Holmes: Is there any other type of breakfast on a train? The girl - female handwriting's quite distinctive. Wrote her phone number down on the napkin. I can tell from the angle she wrote at that she was sat across from you on the other side of the aisle. Later, after she got off, I imagine, you used the napkin to wipe up your spill, coffee accidentally smudging the numbers. You've been over the last four digits yourself in another pen so you wanted to keep the number - just now though, you used the napkin to blow your nose. Maybe you're not that into her after all. Then there's the nicotine stains on your fingers. Your shaking fingers. I know the signs. No chance to smoke one on the train, no time to roll one before you got a cab here. It's just after 9:15; you're desperate. The first train from Exeter to London leaves at 5:46 AM, but you got the first one possible so something important must have happened last night. Am I wrong?
Henry Knight: No. You're right. You're complete, exactly right. Bloody hell, I heard you were quick.
Sherlock Holmes: It's my job. Now shut up and smoke.

Season 2 Trivia

  • Episode 01 - John's blog counter has frozen at 1895. This is an in-joke, a reference to a poem loved by the show's creators:'221B'(written in 1942) by one of the first Sherlockians, Vincent Starrett. The last two lines are: "Here, though the world explode, these two survive / and it is always eighteen nine
  • Episode 03 - In the first sequence in which various newspaper headlines are shown, one story begins, "In a twist worthy of a Conan Doyle novella, Mr. Sherlock Holmes was yesterday revealed to be an expert witness at the trial of 'Jim' Moriarty."
  • Episode 03 - Moriarty keeps referencing his "Final Problem" - namely, how he and Sherlock will settle their score. This is a reference to the Sherlock Holmes story "The Final Problem," which was the basis for this episode.
  • Episode 02 - Sherlock knows that Lestrade just returned from holiday because of his tan. In real life, Rupert Graves was tan because he had just returned from Guadeloupe while filming Death In Paradise (UK). His tan was written into the script.
  • Episode 01 - Benedict swims a lot and there was concern that the chlorine might cause his dyed hair to go greenish, so he was advised to put tomato sauce in it after each swim and wrap it up in foil.
