Most people focus on Jeanette’s line about Sherlock (zing!), but John’s statement “I mean I always thought I was great” just kills me. Earlier that evening Sherlock reminded him that in the space of a year and a bit he had gone out with Sarah, then “the one with the spots”, and next “the one with the nose” and is now with “the boring teacher”.  And in a minute he’ll forget that Jeanette is not the girlfriend with the dog.  Yet he thinks he’s great.  Which he is.  But not for the reasons he thinks.
