Original quotes in the Pool context - THE LIST SO FAR.

Feb 23, 2016
Updated with the quotes on the waiting list.
In case I haven't miscounted, we can now welcome 700 quotes - wow! Congrats to us!

443,7 millilitres
A minute ago you were complaining…
A scratch is almost inevitable.
A study in pink - nice.
Access all areas. I…um required it ages ago, just in case.
Ah! Finally. “Finally” what? Good news? Oh, excellent news – the best.
All of the attention is focussed on me. There’s a surveillance web closing in on us right now.
All right, all right, enough! Stand up.
All right, John, you can turn it off now. I said you can turn it off now. Give me a minute.
All your little puzzles; making me dance – all to distract me from this.
Am I a man? Yep.
Am I a pretty lady?
Am I a vegetable? You, or the thing?
Am I a… woman? Yes.
Am I happy too? I haven’t checked.
Am I supposed to be impressed? You should be.
Amazing – what one has to do to get ahead in a men's world. 
And now I’m giving you one. You take your time. Get yourself together.
And of course I have to mention the elephant in the room.
And one should embrace it when it comes – like a soldier.
And please, keep it simple and brief.
And so what's down there? A bomb? Oh…
And what’s in that one? The inexplicable.
Another one of your bloody tricks!
Any good? Very good.
Any ideas? Eight so far.
Any ideas? Seven… so far.
Any luck? Oh yes. SEARCH COMPLETE
Any time you feel like letting me in…
Anything else I can do? To assist you, I mean? Some silence right now would be marvellous. 
Anything else you can do? I learned the clarinet at school.
Anything in? I'm starving.
Anything interesting?
Anything on the menu, whatever you want, free.
Anything. Pick one. Pick what?
Anyway, you wouldn’t care if it was exposed, would you? I’m in news, you moron.
Apologies about my… you know… thing.
Apologies for the dampness of my touch. You’ll get used to it.
Are we done? You tell me. 
Are you finished? Mmm.
Are you making me an offer? A Christmas present.
Are you okay?  Hmm? What? Oh, yeah. Fine. Gas leak, apparently.
Are you sure about this? Absolutely.
Are you two smoking?
Are you wearing any pants?
Aren’t there usually biscuits? I’ve run out.
Aren’t you gonna put one on?
As ever, you see but you do not observe.
As for your own tale, are you sure it’s still just a seven percent solution that you take? I think you may have increased the dosage.
As your friend – as someone who ... worries about you – what made you like this? Oh, Watson. Nothing made me. I made me.
Ask me how. How would I describe him? What opinion have I formed of him? Do they not teach you this?
Attempting to steal the Crown Jewels
Authorised personnel only. You are now entering a restricted area.
Bad news for brain work. It's good news for breathing. Oh, breathing. Breathing's boring.
Bag this up, will you?
Bainbridge! Gentleman here to see you!
Baker Street. Come at once, if convenient. SH. If inconvenient, come anyway.
Beautiful, isn’t it?
Being back. Being a hero again. Oh, don't be stupid.
Bet you never saw this coming,
Better hurry - things are hotting up here…
Bit mean, springing on you like that, I know. Could have given you a heart attack, probably still will.
Bloody hell, I heard you were quick. It’s my job!
Bored. Bored! Bored! Bored!
Boring, boring, boring, no! Fascinating!
Both ends is too much work.
Brilliant, ruthless, almost certainly a monomaniac…
Busy? Just occupying myself.
But be honest: you’re just a tiny bit pleased.
But if you are what I think you are, it will take you less than a minute.
But what was the point? Why would anyone do this?
But you know how it is: it’s like working in a sweetshop. Once you start picking at the liquorice allsorts, when does it all stop, eh?
By the way, you have a surprisingly comfortable bed...
Can I get you anything, sir? Er, no. No, thanks.
Can you not keep doing this, please? I’m not the first. What? Somebody’s been in here before me!
Can't come too soon.
Can't come too soon.
"Come at once,” you said. I assumed it was important. It is.
Come in, come in.
Come on! It's me! It's me, come on!
Come on. Come on.
Come on. Got a bit of burglary to do.
Come on. We can do this.
Come, Watson, come!
Could I just have a look at it?
Could I just have a look at it?
Could it have been twins? No. Why not? Because it’s never twins.
Could you whisper? NOT REALLY!
D' you think maybe you could let me in this time?
Dear Mr Holmes, I can‘t find Bluebell anywhere. Please, please, please, can you help?
Describe him to me. You’ve seen him. But describe him.
Describe him. Short blond hair.
Did you come for me, too?
Did you like it? Erm, no. Why not? I thought you’d be flattered.
Did you miss me? Did you miss me?
Dinner? Starving.
Do you know you do that out loud?
Do you mind if I fire this, just to clean it out?
Do you think you could survive for just a few minutes without showing off?
Do your research!
Doctor Watson, I know you’re a good man. Don’t… don’t h… Don’t hurt me.
Does that make me special?
Doesn’t it bother you?
Don‘t worry. Next date won‘t be like this. 
Don’t know how those rumours started.
Don’t move, don’t speak, don’t breathe.
Don’t try to trick me. You know who I am. It doesn’t work.
Don’t wanna use mine.
Don’t worry – this is just stupid.
Don’t you have something to do? Just admiring the view.
Don't be dead.
Don't worry. I'll find him in ten minutes.
Don't worry. It's okay. I probably won't even watch it.
Down, girl.
Dull, boring, predictable. 
D'you mind if I get that? No, no, please. You've got the rest of your life.
Egg?? Chair?? Sitty thing??
Er, here. Use mine. Oh. Thank you.
Er, I… right. I should probably tell you…
Er, no, please. Be my guest.
Erm, somebody tiny could-could crawl in there.
Everyone says you're the best.
Excellent reflexes. You’ll do.
Extraordinary. Impossible! Superb!
Fancy a biscuit with that?
Fantastic. Meretricious.
Fetch it for me – if you wouldn’t mind.
First test passed, it would seem. Here’s the second.
Five people in a row? It’s not chance.
Flirting’s over – Daddy’s had enough now!
For God‘s sake! Oh, shut up. It‘s quick.
Forwards, or backwards?
Found something you’ll like.
From the beginning, then.
Gay. Sorry, what? Nothing.
Get off early, leave ’em laughing. Wise advice I’ll certainly try to bear in mind.
Getting warmer, Mr. Holmes. You have about ten minutes.
Go on, let me in. I can’t! You know I can’t. Don’t be silly. Don’t make me do it out here. Not in front of everyone.
Go on. For me. Pleeeeeease?
Go on. Impress a girl.
God, I need to sleep.
Good news for London, bad news for your carpet.
Got your breath back? Ready when you are.
Grownups like that sort of thing.
Has it been cleaned off?
Have you come to torment me?
Have you made a list? Of what? Everything. We will need a list.
Having fun? Starting to.
He‘s a man, and good at it. 
Hello, Redbeard.
Hello. I think it’s time, don’t you?
Here I am, increased.
He's a bomber, remember.
He's not embarrassed, he's afraid.
He's secrectly pleased to see you underneath all that… Sorry, which of us? Both.
Hey, du! Was machst du? Minute.
Hey, how did you do it all so quickly?
Hey, Sherlock, what are you doing …? Shh, John, concentrate. I need you to concentrate. Close your eyes. 
Hey, Sherlock. How long?
Hey, um… do you ever get any free time?
Hi. Look, get over here quickly. I think I’m onto something.
Hmm. Oil-based; used in newspaper print, but drawn on with an index finger; your finger.
How can you not know that? Well, if I ever did, I’ve deleted it.
How do I look, huh? Huh? You can be honest. Is it noticeable?
How fresh? Just in.
How good a shot are you?
How good a shot are you?
How many more you've got for me today?
How much? About a pint.
How was that? Surprisingly okay. 
How‘s the hip? Oh, it‘s atrocious, but thanks for asking.
Howdy, buddy. How long's it been? Eight years since I last  clapped eyes on you?
Hush, please. This is a matter of supreme importance.
I … I was nearly there … I nearly had it!
I am on the case. We’re both on the case. Look at us right now. 
I believe I am in need of medical attention.
I call it Urban Bloodlust Frenzy.
I can barely contain myself!
I can give you two minutes. May need longer.
I can‘t come down, so we‘ll … we‘ll just have to do it like this...
I can’t just turn it off and on like a tap.
I can’t see how a tiny splash of tea is gonna help.
I could do it all day.
I didn’t know anything about that! All those things!
I do think we have a timetable.
I don‘t mind. Me neither.
I don‘t suppose … um, I mean, I don‘t suppose that you … you wanna have a drink?
I don’t know how he does it, so I can’t stop him, and that means he’ll do it again.
I don’t know what I’m going to do now.
I don’t shave for Sherlock Holmes. 
I don't mind you going, darling, I mind you leaving me behind.
I enjoy it. Then why don’t you show us?
I go where you point me.
I had to finish. To finish this work. But it is only a matter of time.
I have an international reputation.
I have been reliably informed that I don’t have one.
I haven’t told Mary about this, so I kind of wanted to surprise her. Yeah, you probably will.
I haven't finished yet. Yeah, I know, I know.
I hope you're teasing.
I just love doing this. I could do it all day.
I know him, don’t I?
I know when I'm in one.
I need some. Get me some. 
I need to ask some advice. What?! Sorry?!
I need to know what bruises form in the next twenty minutes. A man’s alibi depends on it.
I said: Can you pass me a pen?
I suppose it was a fairly obvious trick.
I take a professional interest.
I think he wants to be distracted.
I think I’ll surprise John. He’ll be delighted.
I think you’re a popular choice at the moment, dear.
I thought I was losing you. I thought perhaps we were neglecting each other. Well, you’re the one who moved out.
I thought you understood everything. Of course not. That would be an appalling waste of brain space. I specialise.
I took a photograph.
I totally had you. You cock! I knew it! I knew it! You f…!
I want to help. There's only five hours left.
I want to know how good you are. Go on. Show me.
I was wondering: maybe later, when you‘re finished … I was wondering if you’d like to have coffee.
I will call someone. I will have you removed. 
I will stop you. No, you won‘t. 
I wish you could have worn the antlers!
I would have you right here on this desk until you begged for mercy twice. I've never begged for mercy in my life. Twice.
I‘m breaking every rule letting you in here. 
I‘m not supposed to have a problem with that, no, because Sherlock Holmes thinks it‘s a perfectly OKAY THING TO DO!
I‘ve got two minutes before a Community Support Officer comes round that corner. 
I’d be happy to pay you a meaningful sum of money on a regular basis to… ease your way.
I’ll give you… twelve hours.
I’ll need a bit of time to get ready.
I’ll sleep fine tonight. Quite right.
I’ll-I’ll go and see if I can help with something or another.
I’m a specialist, you see…
I’m gonna go and see an old friend.
I’m happy to play the fool for you. I will run along behind you like some halfwit, making you look clever, if that’s what you need, but dear God above ... you will hold yourself to a higher standard. Why? Because people need you to. What people? Why? Because of your idiot stories? Yes, because of my idiot stories.
I’m here on a legitimate enquiry.
I’m not gay. Well, I am, and look at us both.
I’m not in shock. Yeah, but some of the guys wanna take photographs.
I’m not on duty, and I don’t do drunks.
I’m on fire!
I’m sorry. I’m so sorry. It’s just that sometimes this bloody thing…
I’m sorry. That’s not very professional. No. No, not really.
I’m sure he’ll be out in a minute. Oh, like he ever is.
I’m very, very glad to see you, sir. I know you don’t really do this sort of thing. I’m very, very glad to see you, sir. I know you don’t really do this sort of thing.
I’ve been thinking about you.
I’ve been thinking about you.
I’ve got a lunch date. Cancel it. You’re having lunch with me.
I’ve interests all over the world but, er, everything starts in England.
I’ve missed something, haven’t I?
If you could possibly struggle all the way to the end.
If you wouldn't mind.
If you’re so keen, why don’t you investigate it?
I'm gasping.
I'm not the first.
I'm part of a campaign, you know?
I'm Sherlock Holmes and I always work alone
In his late thirties, I’d say. Not in the best condition.
Inspector, my time is being wasted. Would you mind showing yourself and your friends out?
Is it just me, or is anyone else starving?
Is that  why you’re calling yourself Greg? That's his name!
Is that a brain?
Is that a British Army Browning L9A1 in your pocket or are you just pleased to see me?
Is that him? Is he in there?
Is that the best you’ve got?
Is that three patches?
Is that you? …exploded into supernovas.
Is there a medical point to that?
Is there anything to which you would like to draw my attention?
Isn’t it great to be working with a celebrity?
It changes people, marriage. Mmm. No, it doesn't.
It feels squishy! Is it supposed to feel squishy?
It is all meant for you.
It must be so relaxing.
It never really happened.
It never tastes like it smells, does it?
It only makes sense to put things in there that really matter.
It was just a job, you know?
It was over in a flash. It couldn’t last.
It was quite a relief, to be honest.
It was worth a try.
It wasn't there earlier.
It works like this, John.
It‘s all coming out now. It‘s all over.
It’s all he ever did in his spare time.
It’s always you. John Watson, you keep me right.
It’s an exchange, not a gift.
It’s been five minutes since Mycroft called. What progress have you made? What have you been doing?
It’s chess.
It’s either this or Cluedo.
It’s just like old times, having you back here.
It’s more common than people think.
It’s not as good as your French. Not as good as your French
It’s not decent. Who cares about decent?
It’s not like it is in the movies. There’s not a great big spurt of blood and you go flying backwards.
It’s over in a split second.
It’s password protected. I already seem to have it.
It’s so placid. Straightforward. Barely used.
It’s too slow. It’s too slow.
It's a cross I have to bear.
It's a head! A severed head! A bloody head!
It's clearly man's work.
It's for everyone’s safety.
It's murder on the knees.
It's NOT a fake. It is a fake. Don’t know why, but there’s something wrong with it. There HAS to be
It's not in the rules. The rules are wrong.
I've got all night.
I've only been gone four minutes.
I've seen this place before...
J.W. - Hang on, Sherlock! S.H. - What?
Jeez. What the hell is happening?
John, how nice! I was hoping you wouldn’t be long.
John, it is a tiny bit sexy. Yeah, I know.
John, you are addicted to a certain lifestyle.
John, you probably want to shut up now.
Just here, please. You didn’t even change your clothes.
Just tea for me, thanks.
Just this once, dear. 
Ladies and gentlemen, there will now be a short interlude.
Last night - who did that?
Let me examine this body.
Let’s stop playing. We don’t need toys to kill each other. Where’s the intimacy in that?
Let’s talk about Mary first. Sorry, what?
Like  a meat… dagger
Listen to me: I am not gay!
Look at you, all happy. It‘s not decent. 
Look, Sherlock, you‘re doing really well. Don‘t give up now. 
Love…love…love…love…lo…; bit of a theme, you get the gist.
Lovely! Sherlock, that was lovely! Marvellous!
Lucky guess. I never guess.
Many weren't so lucky.
Mary likes it. Mmmmmm, no she doesn’t.
Maximum pressure just under the half second. 
Maybe I shouldn't have brought it.
Mind if I check? Oh, I insist.
Mmm, no, it's different now, though, isn't it? It's different to when we thought we'd lost him.
Mmm, on schedule.
Mmm. Anyway you've got things to do. Not really. I've got plenty of time to…
Mmm. You realize we’ve hardly stopped for breath since this thing started?
Mr. Holmes, you’re going to be incredibly useful.
Mundane is good, sometimes. Mundane works.
Must have dressed in a hurry this morning… so all your shirts must be kept like that.
My friend… will you not take any of the credit? This was all down to you.
My girlfriend's a big fan of yours.
My only concern is how long I'll be able to continue my work before I am incapacitated.
Needs must when the devil drives, Watson.
Never on a case. You promised me. Never on a case. No, I just said that in one of your stories. 
Never really comes up in crime work, but, um, you know, I live in hope for the right case.
Nice touch. I haven‘t pulled rank in ages. Did you enjoy it? Oh yeah.
No rush!
No, no idea, sorry.
No, no, it’s obvious! That’s how he did it!
No, this is special, let’s take it slowly.
No. It‘s really sore. You‘re mental you are. 
No. Well, we’ll have to get rid of that. “We”?  He looks ancient. I can’t be seen to be wandering around with an old man.
No? Okay, my turn. 
Nobody thought so – nobody except me.
Not exactly Fort Knox. Not exactly Fort Knox.
Not now. I’m busy. …Sherlock. Not now!
Not sure about that
Not tea, obviously.
Not the way I'd have done it.
Not too close. I’m raw from crying.
Nothing indiscreet. Nothing you’d feel… uncomfortable with.
Now people will definitely talk.
Now would be good!
Now, can I flick it?
Now, can I flick it?
Now, have you got a first aid kit?
Now, save me a little time. Where should we be looking?
Now, shall we finish the game? One final act.
Now, where is it? What? You know what. 
Now? Seriously, months of silence and we’re gonna do this now?
Nurse, press here – hard.
Obviously I can straighten things up a bit.
Of course. I am a show-off. That’s what we do.
Oh my God, oh my God. Do you have any idea what you’ve done to him?
Oh Sherl...
Oh Watson!
Oh! Brilliant! Thought it was gonna be a dull evening…
Oh, blame it on the illustrator. He’s out of control.
Oh, Christ! Sherlock!
Oh, come on, love. Don‘t be like all the rest. 
Oh, dull. Don't worry, it gets better.
Oh, go on. It’s been an age.
Oh, I had to practically threaten him.
Oh, I know exactly where I’m going.
Oh, it‘s Christmas. 
Oh, John, I envy you so much.
Oh, my God. Greg? Is that Greg?
Oh, no, you can’t come in here! I’m looking for a friend. A very specific… friend.
Oh, please, can we not do that this time? Do what?
Oh, Sherlock. The mess you’ve made.
Oh, Sherlock. What have you done?
Oh, Sherlock. Did I do it wrong?
Oh, that’s a corker. It’s very saucy.
Oh, that’s clever. Is it clever? Why is it clever?
Oh, those things you said - such sweet things! I - I never knew you cared.
Oh, we’re done waiting!
Oh, who's this?
Oh, you're rather good. You're not so bad. 
Oh. That was mild. People say a lot worse than that.
Oh. Well, I help out a bit. Closer.
OK, stop, just stop! Point made.
Okay, I’ll prove it. Give me time. Will you give me time?
Okay, sighting number three.
Okay, this is too much. We need to be more careful. What do you mean, more careful?
Okay, you two bad boys. Behave yourselves.
Okay. Your way. Always your way. 
One can only hope you’re as good as you seem to think.
One hole, or two?
One little push, and off you pop.
Out? At this hour of the morning?
Ow! Thank you. That was – that was…
Part two is more action-based. 
Pass me your revolver. I have a sudden need to use it.
People seem to like it – humanises me.
Pine? Spruce? Cedar. New mothballs.
Planet earth would fit into it eleven times.
Play the music again, please, thank you.
Please place your items in the bag provided.
Please, can I come? I think I've got a broken arm.
Please, do relax. This is all for a case. What kind of case would need you doing this?
Poetry or truth? Many would say they’re the same thing. Yes, idiots. Poetry or truth?
Pointless. You’ll never find him. But I know a man who can. Who? Me.
Private property. Keep out.
Put this on.
Quick, one more. He mustn't see.
Really! Manners!
Right, I just… I need a moment to figure out what I’m going to do. I can tell you what you can do. Okay. Okay, I’m ready now.
Right, this should do it.
See? This one shines a little brighter. 
Sergeant Donovan. What about her? Said you get off on this. You enjoy it.
Seriously, it’s not a joke?
Sex doesn’t alarm me.
Shall we go over together?
Sherlock, do we have a plan? Sherlock?
Sherlock, please. I beg of you. You can take over at the interval. Oh, I’m sorry, brother dear, but you made a promise. There’s nothing I can do to help.
Sherlock, the showing-off thing… we’ve discussed it before.
Sherlock, wait! We’re going to need to coordinate.
Sherlock, what’s going on? What’s happening? I’ve lost him. I don’t know what…
Sherlock. Let’s go. You go. I’m busy.
Short version: not dead!
Should I be making notes? If it makes you feel better.
Shouldn’t worry – I’ll probably get one soon.
Shut up, John!
So did you find it eventually, your lottery ticket?
So I‘m basically filling in for you skull?
So just tell me, what are we dealing with? Something new.
So this is what you do, you and John…
So what d’you think? Shall we?
So what do I… what do you want me to do at the end? Shall I, um, smile and wink?
So what do we do? I have no idea. Well, think of something.
So you shaved it off, then. Yeah. Wasn't working for me.
So, come to astonish us with your magic tricks, I suppose.
So, it’s all about one thing now.
So, my friend. Now it’s just you and me.
So, what’s this one? "Belly Button Murders?"
So, where's this friend of yours then?
So. what's this about - the case?
So… this is all your stuff.
Solving crimes won‘t be enough. One day he‘ll cross the line. 
Something big’s coming, isn’t it?
Something I couldn’t get out of my head.
Sometimes you have to look hard at something to see ist value.
Sorry, John. I win.
Sorry, one more. Whoops! So sorry! Thank you!
Sorry, sir. I’m rather behind my time this morning.
Sounds like a good place to start. Ah! You’ll come down, then?
Speed was paramount.
Started young, didn’t you?
Stay exactly where you are. Don‘t move. Keep your eyes fixed on me.
Still has trust issues.
Still, bit of a risk, isn’t it? Here?
Stop talking now.
Stop-stop panicking. I’m not panicking.
Stupid idea. Whose idea was that?
Take a look at where you’re standing and make a deduction.
Taking his time this time.
Thank God that's over.
Thank you for bringing this to my attention. It’s very promising.
Thank you, John! Molly. Yes.
Thank you, Mister Holmes. Open it, please.
Thank's for coming, thank you.
That was the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever done.
That would set it off. You see? You know things.
That, ah— thing that you did. That you, um, you offered to do. That was, um... good. 
That’s all it takes: one lonely and naive man desperate to show off.
That’s how you get your kicks, isn’t it?
That’s right – you warm yourself up. I made everything nice and cosy for you.
That's not why I'm here.
The best and bravest man I know – and on top of that he actually knows how to do stuff.
The curtain rises.
The fact that you know it's going to happen isn't going to stop it. - Then why am I smiling?
The fact that you know it's going to happen isn't going to stop it. - Then why am I smiling?
The game is on.
The Navel Treatment"?
The police don’t consult amateurs. 
The truth about Sherlock Holmes.
Then I choose for you, and I force it down your throat. Right now there’s nothing you could do to stop me.
There may not be time for that now.
There will always come a time when we need Sherlock Holmes.
There you go. Go find out where he is and pick him up.
There’s really only one thing we can do with that ensemble…
There's only a large cavity where that organ should reside.
They’ll get in the way. They always do. This is cleaner, more efficient. And illegal? A bit.
They’re greedy, and they’ll do it again, and next time we’re gonna catch’em in the act.
This guy here had a trick he used to do. 
This is a matter of national importance. Grow up.
This is a matter of the highest security, and therefore of trust.
THIS is a risk.
This is a young man’s gadget.
This is all really promising. T
This is beautiful. I love this!
This is different. It’s an ancient device.
This is good news, John. It’s-it’s-it’s good.
This is hard. What? Really hard. Hardest thing I’ve ever had to do.
This is how I want you to remember me.
This is not Lady Smallwood.
This is not what you think. This is for a case.
This is one of my favourites. Oh, it's so exciting!
This is the uncut version. Quite funny.
This is what I do to people. This is what I do to whole countries.
This is your living, Sherlock – not two hundred and forty different types of tobacco ash.
This isn’t agreeing with me.
This looks good.
Thought I'd make your favourite, one last time.
Three days, judging by the laundry.
Three times a day, tell your friends. Tell anyone!
Time to choose a side…
Trouble is, your friends all think you’re acting..
Two days he's been like that.
Uh, they're very eighties - probably one of those retro designs.
Uh-huh. I’m on it, yeah.
Um, you’re not phoning… him, are you? Cause we can handle this. We can absolutely handle it.
Umm… special day… very special day…
Unexpected item in bagging area. Please try again.
Up a bit! I’m not talking from down here. Okay, just take it, take it.
Very popular, Doctor Watson!
Visible above the waistline – very visible; very particular brand.
Wakey, wakey!
Wanna see some more? Oh, God, yes. 
Want me to go on? Er, no. I think you’ve covered it.
Watch. Don’t interfere.
Watson! I'm ready!
We both know what’s coming, John.
We have kept a lot of people successfully in the dark about this little fact…
We should go home now. The case is almost done. Let's finish it.
We‘re gonna get caught. No, we won‘t. In five minutes. In five minutes.
We’ve X-rayed it. It’s not booby-trapped.
Welcome back!
We'll be hungry later.
Well done, you. Come and get me.
Well now. Have you been wicked, Your Highness?
We'll start with the riding crop
Well, Holmes? Surely you must have some theory.
Well, I can play it for you if you like.
Well, maybe next time I’ll let you kip at the end of my bed, you know.
Well, of course it’s for men! I’m wearing it!
Well, thank God you’re above all that.
Well, that was tedious. 
Well, there’s-there’s-there’s something here. Um, wasn’t sure whether I should have kept it in.
Well, they’re quite big, so a man’s.
Well, this could be very nice. Very nice indeed. Yes, I think so. My thoughts exactly.
Well, we’re in a good place. It’s, um, very affirming.
Well, where else was I supposed to put it?
Well, within the narrative, that is, broadly speaking, your function.
Well, you could just sit there and watch telly.
We're going out tonight. Actually - I've got a date. It's where two people who like each other go out and have fun.
We're not a couple.
Wh… There was a moment that kind of stuck in the mind, yeah.
What about Mycroft? He could help us. A big family reconciliation? Now’s not really the moment.
What am I doing here? Helping me make a point.I'm supposed to be helping you pay the rent. Yeah, well, this is more fun.
What am I looking for? The impossible. The one impossible thing.
What are we doing here, Sherlock? Seriously, what? I don't know.
What are you doing here? As ever, I’m concerned about you.
What are you doing? Coming.
What do you need? You.
What have I done that’s so bloody stimulating?
What have you been doing all morning?
What is going on? Bloody good question.
What sort of case? Too big and dangerous for any sane individual to get involved in.
What the hell am I supposed to say to that?
What the hell are you doing? Bored.
What the hell is this? Chocolate?
What the hell’s all this about? What does it look like, my handsome friend?
What was my excuse again?
What was today about? Saying thank you.
What? Are you out of your mind?
What? Cameras? Here? I’m in my nightie.
What‘s wrong with my hand?
What’s going on? This is hard.
What’s the matter with you? There is nothing the matter with me.
What’s tonight? I’ll text instructions.
What's in there?
When a neat little idea popped into your head...
When did we agree that? We agreed it yesterday. Stop! Closer!
Where are you?
Where is this item now?
Where now? The Gallery? In a bit.
Who are you? What do you do? What do you think?
Why am I doing this, again?
Why are we doing this? We never do this.
Why are you doing this?
Why didn’t I think of that? Because you’re an idiot.
Why didn’t you come to me in the first place? Why? Because I was invited.
Why is my brother so determined to bore me when somebody else is being so delightfully interesting?
Why'd you think I know what to do? Because you're Sherlock Holmes. You're as clever as it gets.
Will you please move your hand? I long, my darling, to know the touch of your ... body.
With love and many big squishy cuddles.
Works for me. Everything works on you.
Would you care to try it?
Would you like … … to have dinner?
Would you, uh, care to sit down?
Yeah, he just took off. He does that.
Yeah, I'm not desperate to root around some bloke's dirty underwear.
Yeah, it’s faulty. Can’t seem to fix it.
Yeah, it’s getting a bit scary now.
Yeah, meeting you has been the best thing that could have possibly happened. I agree.
Yeah, not bad…Bit…smoked.
Yeah, that's...odd. There's nowhere he could have got off?
Yeah, this is more fun.
Yeah, we’re loo… we’re looking for a-a-a-a dwarf.
Yes! Ooh, yes!
Yes, great, wonderful. Just get out.
Yes, yes, yes, yes, YES! I’ve been an idiot – a blind idiot! What? Oh, that’s good. That could be brilliant.
Yes. Back to work if you don't mind. Right. Back to work. Where is this item now? It's on the tip of my tongue.
You all right? Of course I'm all right, why wouldn't I be?
You and I – we barely scratched the surface.
You are flesh and bones, you have … you must have … impulses.
You are. Proper genius.
You asked me to come. I’m assuming it’s important.
You being funny now? Thought it might break the ice a bit.
You blacked out? What? No. No!
You can be honest – is it noticeable?
You can do what you like here. No one’s ever going to stop you.
You can stop being dead.
You chose to come here. I heard you.
You didn't get very far.
You don’t even know my name.
You don’t have to keep apologising.
You don’t seem very afraid. You don’t seem very frightening.
You fire away.
You gonna be long? I might be.
You got that from a book.
You have no idea the trouble it took to find you
You know how most days aren‘t good days? This is a good day. 
You know what I do. Off you go.
You know you never let me touch your things!
You know, for a genius you can be remarkably thick.
You know, I honestly expected something good. 
You look ... well, sir. Really? I rather thought I looked enormous.
You look pasty, love!
You may need to restart my heart on the way.
You need to fall on your back!
You need to get it out. 
You okay, love?
You realise this is a tiny bit humiliating? It’s okay, I’m fine.
You realise you don't exactly look like Magnussen?
You recognise our song, my dear? I sang it at our wedding.
You said you had a thing.
You see? It’s nicer than you think.
You should always use gloves with these things, you know.
You should get yourself a hobby - stamps, maybe. Model trains. Safer. 
You tend to rub ’em up the wrong way.
You think maybe you could keep your voice down?
You think we should sniff around here a bit longer?
You want to go out on a case? N-now?
You want to hit me now? Could you, still?
You want to hit me now? Could you, still?
You‘re gonna be all right. It‘s over now. It‘s over. 
You‘re wearing lipstick. You weren‘t wearing lipstick before. 
You‘ve only started recently, because you’ve got a bit of chafing.
You’ll do.
You’re a bit – well, over-qualified.
You’re a graduate chemist, can’t you just work it out? I like the practical experience.
You’re a great boyfriend.
You’re enjoying this, aren’t you?
You’re going to love this. Love what?
You’re in deep, Sherlock, deeper than you ever intended to be.
You’re under stress right now and your hand is perfectly steady.
You’re very quick, Mister Holmes.
You’re very resilient. Most people would have passed out by now.
You’ve never called me ‘boss’ before. Ah, well, look what happens when you’re good!
You’ve only been out for about ten minutes. You’re strong. I’m impressed.
Your hand is sweating. Always, I‘m afraid. I have a condition. 
Your inbox is bursting!
Your mother has a lot to answer for. Hm, I know. I have a list. Mycroft has a file.
You're just trying to make me say something nice.
You're not bored now, are you?
You're not really getting the hang of this game, are you, Sherlock?
You've got two more minutes.
Yum yum

Re: Original quotes in the Pool context - THE LIST SO FAR.

I've just deleted all my other posts here because everything I have to say in now in #1.

John: "Have you spoken to Mycroft, Molly, uh, anyone?"
Mrs Hudson: "They don’t matter. You do."

Re: Original quotes in the Pool context - THE LIST SO FAR.

On the Waiting List for the Official List 

As your friend – as someone who ... worries about you – what made you like this?
Oh, Watson. Nothing made me. I made me.

attempting to steal the Crown Jewels ...

Ask me how. How would I describe him? What opinion have I formed of him? Do they not teach you this?

Never on a case. You promised me. Never on a case.
No, I just said that in one of your stories.

I’m happy to play the fool for you. I will run along behind you like some halfwit, making you look clever, if that’s what you need, but dear God above ... you will hold yourself to a higher standard.
Because people need you to.
What people? Why? Because of your idiot stories?
Yes, because of my idiot stories.

Let’s stop playing. We don’t need toys to kill each other. Where’s the intimacy in that?

Pass me your revolver. I have a sudden need to use it.

The truth about Sherlock Holmes.

What am I doing here?
Helping me make a point.
I'm supposed to be helping you pay the rent.
Yeah, well, this is more fun.

We'll start with the riding crop

Now, save me a little time. Where should we be looking?

Go on, let me in.
I can’t! You know I can’t. Don’t be silly.
Don’t make me do it out here. Not in front of everyone.
