Season 2 Quotes

02x03 - The Reichenbach Fall Season 2 / Episode 3: - The Reichenbach Fall

Jim Moriarty: Every fairy tale needs a good old-fashioned villain. You need me or you're nothing. Because we're just alike, you and I, except you're boring. You're on the side of the angels.
02x01 - A Scandal in Belgravia Season 2 / Episode 1: - A Scandal in Belgravia

Dr. John Watson: You were dead on a slab. It was definitely you.
Irene Adler: DNA tests are only as good as the records you keep.
Dr. John Watson: And I bet you know the record keeper.
Irene Adler: I know what he likes, and I needed to disappear.
Dr. John Watson: Then how come I can see you, and I don't even want to.
Irene Adler: Look, I made a mistake. I sent something to Sherlock for safekeeping and now I need it back, so I need your help.
Dr. John Watson: No.
Irene Adler: It's for his own safety.
Dr. John Watson: So's this: tell him you're alive.
Irene Adler: I can't.
Dr. John Watson: Fine. I'll tell him, and I still won't help you.
Irene Adler: What do I say?
Dr. John Watson: What do you normally say? You've texted him a LOT!
Irene Adler: Just the usual stuff.
Dr. John Watson: There is no "usual" in this case.
Irene Adler: "Good morning. I like your funny hat. I'm sad tonight. Let's have dinner." "You looked sexy on Crime Watch, let's have dinner." "I'm not hungry. Let's have dinner."
Dr. John Watson: You... flirted... with Sherlock Holmes?
Irene Adler: AT him. He never replies.
Dr. John Watson: Sherlock always replies - to everything. He's Mr. Punchline. He will outlive God trying to have the last word.
Irene Adler: Does that make me special?
Dr. John Watson: I don't know. Maybe.

Season 2 Trivia

  • Episode 01 - Benedict Cumberbatch fell while dressed only in his sheet at Buckingham Palace. "I'd overstepped my sheet's limits and fell. I was dedicated to the moment." Though it made a terrible sound, cast and crew could not help laughing.
  • Episode 03 - SPOILER: At Holmes' grave, at the end of the episode, Dr. Watson told Holmes, "There were times when I didn't think you were human, but ... you were ... the most human human being that I've ever known..." At the end of Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan (1982), Admiral Kirk eulogized the deceased S
  • Episode 01 - Goof (revealing mistake): Although it is supposedly Christmas and New Year, the trees are all in full leaf.
  • Episode 03 - Ian Hallard, who plays Moriarty's defense attorney, is the real-life husband of Mark Gatiss, who plays Mycroft Holmes and who is also co-creator and writer of the show.
  • Episode 02 - Goof (revealing mistake): When Sherlock and John arrive on Dartmoor, the sun rises up and to the left. Since the scene was actually shot in Dartmoor, and not in the southern hemisphere, this footage must be of a sunset played in reverse.
