what's the best, most iconic johnlock quote?

Well I will approach this in two ways. ACD Canon quotes and BBC Sherlock quotes.

ACD Canon : 

  • “It may be that you are not yourself luminous, but that you are a conductor of light. Some people without possessing genius have a remarkable power of stimulating it.” 
  • “You have a grand gift for silence, Watson. It makes you quite invaluable as a companion.” 
  • “I know, my dear Watson, that you share my love of all that is bizarre and outside the conventions and humdrum routine of daily life.” 
  • “You’re not hurt, Watson? For God’s sake, say that you are not hurt!“ It was worth a wound – it was worth many wounds – to know the depth of loyalty and love which lay behind that cold mask. The clear, hard eyes were dimmed for a moment, and the firm lips were shaking. For the one and only time I caught a glimpse of a great heart as well as of a great brain. All my years of humble but single-minded service culminated in that moment of revelation.” 
  • “I have never loved, Watson, but if I did and if the woman I loved had met such an end, I might act even as our lawless lion-hunter has done. Who knows?” – The Devil’s Foot. “By the Lord, it is as well for you. If you had killed Watson, you would not have got out of this room alive. Now, sir, what have you to say for yourself?” – The Three Garridebs.
  • “The relations between us in those latter days were peculiar. He was a man of habits, narrow and concentrated habits, and I had become one of them…..I was a whetstone for his mind. I stimulated him. ”
  • “I am lost without my Boswell.”
  • “…If we could fly out of that window hand in hand, hover over this great city…. ”


BBC Sherlock:

  • “You’ve got a boyfriend then? Which is fine by the way.” “I know it’s fine.”
  • “I am happy to play the fool. For you.”
  • “You, it’s always you John Watson. You keep me right.”
  • “I don’t mind.” “Anytime.”
  • “I’m glad no one saw that.” “What?” “You, ripping my clothes off in a darkened swimming pool. People might talk.”
  • “Take my hand.” “Now people will definitely talk.”
  • “You look sad, when you think he can’t see you.”
  • “I have a date” “that’s what I was suggesting”
  • “It(Sherlock Watson) could work.”
  • “Dinner?” “Starving.”
  • “You are a great boyfriend. Sherlock Holmes is a very lucky man…Don’t make me compete with Sherlock Holmes.”
  • “I’m his doctor.” “And only a fool argues with his doctor”
  • “The stuff you wanted to say but never did. Say it now” “No. I can't”
  • “There’s something I’ve always wanted to say but never have”
  • “You being all mysterious with your–cheekbones. And turning your coat collar up so you look cool.”
  • “I’d be lost without my blogger.”
  • “I was so alone. And I owe you so much.”
  • “But look how you care about John Watson. Your damsel in distress.”


There are many. But I have a tendency to forget quotes when someone asks for it. Feel free to add more.

Mycroft: Do you think I’m uptight?

John: Your shirt is unbuttoned.

Mycroft: [gasps in horror] …Wait, my shirt doesn’t have buttons.

John: Next question.

I WANNA SHOW YOU “BRAZILIAN TRUMP” (maybe worst)

“The mistake of the dictatorship was to torture and not kill“
“Pinochet should have killed more people” (chile)
>“I would be unable to love a homosexual child. I’d rather have a son of mine dying in an accident.”
>“I don’t rape you because you’re not good enough” (he said that to a federal deputy called Maria do Rosário) 

When people asked him about what he would do if his children related to (date) a black woman or to homosexuals, he said: “I do not take that risk, my children were very well educated”

“The PMs should have killed 1,000 rather than 111 prisoners.” (about the  Carandiru massacre here in Brazil)
“I will not fight or discriminate, but if I see two men kissing in the street, I will spank them.”  (like ?????)
“Parliamentary should not take the bus”

and, of course:

“Women should earn less because they get pregnant”


He already said that he’s going to run for president in 2018 (Brazil). His name is Jair Bolsonaro and he’s a piece of shit.

(also, I reeeaallly don’t know english, so… i’m sorry. It’s just that tumblr is my home and I can’t stand this man…. anyway)

Sherlock: To bee or not to bee? That is the question.

Sherlock: I choose to bee!

[millions of bees come out of nowhere]

Molly: Damn it Sherlock not again!

  • John HLV: My wife is an assassin she shot my best friend I hate her how have I been played like this I don't deserve this what are the sins I'm paying for
  • John TLD: Mary taught me how to be the man she thought I was
  • Sherlock: But you are good and bra-
  • John: Stop
  • Sherlock: You've always been loy-
  • John: No further
  • Sherlock: You have saved me befo-
  • John: LA LA LA
  • Sherlock: Please listen, there was a time you'd do everything for those you-

Yet ANOTHER Sherlock dream. Sorry for caps lock.
