Best single lines or dialogue

Mycroft: You're a Christmas Present.

Moriarty: Oh...How do you want me?

Mycroft: There is, within this facility, a prisoner whose intellectual abilities are of occasional use to the British Government.

Moriarty: What, for like really difficult sums, long-division, that sort of thing.

Hilarious.  A favorite in this episode.

Re: Best single lines or dialogue

The second line is my all time favourite in the show, coupled with Moriarty's little grin at the end!

Re: Best single lines or dialogue

Sherlock to an awakening Watson: How are you?

Watson: Bit of a lump.

Sherlock: True that. But you have your uses.

Well, I suppose I could go on endlessly quoting these delicious bits of comedic dialogue.  All of the episodes are filled with them.  Filled to the point where I am sometimes surprised the program is not classified as a comedy.

But I will try to only quote the very favorites.

Re: Best single lines or dialogue

These  exchanges also reveal the lie in the complaints that the episodes were relentless with no light relief.

Yes, you are right.  I do not understand that complaint.  Going into watching a show like this you should, with only a moments reflection, know that it will have a cerebral requirement to enjoy it.  I mean, the name Sherlock Holmes, if you know anything about the character, should give that away.  There will be deductive work.  That means some brain function in order to comprehend and appreciate it. Will you need to watch closely or multiple times to fully comprehend what just happened? ....Oh glory, yes. The amount of detail packed into the show, if you wish to fully understand, requires that you pay attention and put forth an effort.  Want light entertainment?  Well, I am not sure you are in the right place then -- though I would not tell folk do not watch for all of the world.  But as much as we enjoy the characters and personalities, this is not a soap opera. The character interactions are only part of the point -- an important part, yes, along with everything else.

But if you enjoy the characters, then the interaction and dialogue are just as enjoyable as the deductive reasoning, puzzle solving, and crime solving.

Re: Best single lines or dialogue

This was the darkest series of Sherlock ever and the pace was relentless.. But there were also some extremely tender moments and indeed,some scenes were just hilarious.

Re: Best single lines or dialogue

"I wrote my own version of the Nativity when I was a child. "The Hungry Donkey". It was a bit gory, but if you're going to put a baby in a manger, you're asking for trouble."

I would like to know, who's idea was "The Hungry Donkey". Very much!

It took 2000 years to invent something like that!... 
And it is so dreadful, and so funny, at the same time :D

My friend and I couldn't stop laughing at that line!

Basically everything Moriarty said.

Re: Best single lines or dialogue

Loved the exchange between John and Mycroft that I put into my signature.

"There is a place for people like you, the desperate, the terrified. The ones with nowhere else to run."
"What place?"
"221B Baker Street."

Perfect summary http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png


Also loved Mrs. Hudson:

"Do you want tea?"
"Thank you."
"The kettle's over there."

In combination with John's and Sherlock's smile - priceless http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png

Re: Best single lines or dialogue

One that I think is being overlooked.

Mycroft is trying to convince Sherlock he has to shoot John, while John looks on.
Mycroft says something to the effect of Soldiers give their lives for their country, you're going to get to do that.
John's response is "shit, he's right."    I wanted to laugh and cry.  John, our amazing soldier.

Oh yes! And then in the same scene when Mycroft said "I suppose there is a heart somewhere inside me. I don't imagine it's much of a target, but why don't we try for that?"
There is so much more meaning in the word heart there than just the organ. Even the iceman has a heart, we always knew but it became so apparent in this episode. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/love.png

Re: Best single lines or dialogue

One of my favourite lines is "He did his best". I thought it was sweet that for once, Sherlock stood up for his brother. Maybe he finally realised that they were on the same side... (Mycroft in ASIP: "Did it never occur to you that you and I belong on the same side?")

​I also love Mycroft's "That's why I've always despised you": it must cost him to say this, when you know he's basically spent his whole life looking after Sherlock, worrying about him... There's Nothing he wouldn't do for Sherlock, not even dying.

​Well, I could quote the whole scene actually (i really like his "You said you liked my Lady Bracknell" like it was of some importance at such a moment) but I'll finish with his lovely:

​"I suppose there is a heart somewhere inside me. I don't imagine it's much of a target but why don't we try for that?"

​This line really broke my heart...
