sherlock scenes

[Mycroft throwing a fancy dinner party]

Mycroft: (walks by Sherlock)

Sherlock: (showing crime scene pictures to a woman) And when we finally got to her, it was only hanging on by two tendons.

Mycroft: (grabs Sherlock) uh, would you excuse us please? (Drags Sherlock away) SHERLOCK! will you PLEASE, stop showing these crime scene photos? you’re embarrassing me!

Sherlock: All these high society people love this, besides she’s the one that brought it up!

Mycroft: (scoffs) OH! She brought it up? She brought up the subject of a hooker’s body who was hideously dismembered and scattered all over an abandoned warehouse!?

Sherlock: YEAH! She asked me, “aren’t these Swedish meatballs the messiest things you’ve ever seen?” and I said, “NO, as a matter of fact… ”


“Taking your own life. Interesting expression. Taking it from whom? Once it’s over, it’s not you who will miss it. Your own death is something that happens to everybody else. Your life is not your own, keep your hands off it.”

Deleted shot from TFP of Sherlock after he smashes the coffin. He’s a real mess here when compared to the actual shot they included afterward. Though he was visibly shaking in that one as well. Makes me wonder exactly how long he sat there when John finally thought it was safe to get him to talk again. And if this is not enough proof of how much Molly means to Sherlock, I don’t know what does. Hats off to Benedict’s performance.
