I absolutely love how in ASiB, Irene asks Sherlock to impress her by finding out what the email means, but after he discovers it in 8 seconds, he shows the “proof” of how he deducted it to John, not to Irene. Who Sherlock really wants to impress is John.

John drives out to the wilderness with a laptop to investigate a murder over skype so that Sherlock doesn’t have to get dressed

in the same episode that he says to his girlfriend “I’ll even walk your dog for you, there, I said it” like it’s the most impressive gesture in the history of romance
