sherlock holmes & molly hooper

  • Sherlock: Can I borrow a pen?
  • Anderson: I don't know, can you?
  • Sherlock: Yes, and I might add that colloquial irregularities occur frequently in any language, and since you and the rest of our present company perfectly understood my intended meaning, being particular about the distinction between 'can' and 'may' is purely pedantic and arguably pretensious.
  • Sherlock : Rules are made to be broken.
  • Mycroft : They were made to be followed. Nothing is made to be broken.
  • Molly : Uh, piñatas.
  • Irene : Karate boards.
  • John : Glow sticks.
  • Eurus : Spaghetti when you have a small pot.
  • Sherlock : Rules.
