Season 2 Quotes

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

Irene Adler: [stark naked before them] D'you know the big problem with a disguise, Mr. Holmes? However hard you try, it's always a self-portrait.
Sherlock Holmes: You think I'm a vicar with a bleeding face?
Irene Adler: No, I think you're damaged, delusional and believe in a higher power. In your case, it's yourself. And somebody loves you. Oh, if I had to punch that face...
Irene Adler: [looks over at John]... I'd avoid your nose and teeth, too.
Dr. John Watson: [laughs nervously] Could you put something on, please? Uh, anything at all. A napkin...
Sherlock Holmes: Why? Are you feeling exposed?
Irene Adler: I don't think John knows where to look.

Irene Adler: No, I think he knows exactly where. I'm not sure about you.
Sherlock Holmes: If I were to look at naked women, I'd borrow John's laptop.
Dr. John Watson: You do borrow my laptop.
Sherlock Holmes: I confiscate it.
02x03 - The Reichenbach Fall Season 2 / Episode 3: - The Reichenbach Fall

Sherlock Holmes: [In their apartment, reading the latest tabloids] "Boffin"? Boffin Sherlock Holmes.
Dr. John Watson: Everybody gets one.
Sherlock Holmes: One what?
Dr. 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?
Dr. John Watson: "*Bachelor* John Watson."
Sherlock Holmes: What kind of hat is it anyway?
Dr. John Watson: Bachelor? What the hell are they implying?
Sherlock Holmes: Is it a cap? Why has it got two fronts?
Dr. 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?
Dr. John Watson: "*Confirmed* bachelor, John Watson."
Sherlock Holmes: Is it like some sort of death frisbee?
Dr. John Watson: Okay, this is too much. We need got to be more careful.
Sherlock Holmes: It's got flaps. *Ear* flaps, it's an *ear* hat, John.

Sherlock Holmes: What do you mean, more careful?
Dr. John Watson: I mean, this isn't a deerstalker now, it's a Sherlock Holmes hat. I mean, that you're not exactly a *private* detective any more. You're this far from famous.
Sherlock Holmes: Oh, it'll pass.
