Umm, there were times I didn’t even think you were mouse, but let me tell you this: you were the best mouse, and the most mouse… mouse being that I’ve ever known, and no one will ever convince me that you told me a lie, and so… There. I was so alone, and I owe you so much. Please, there’s just one more thing, one more thing, one more miracle, Basil, for me. Don’t… be… dead. Would you, just for me, just stop it? Stop this.

So …Sherlock Holmes gets questioned “You and John Watson, just platonic?”

where Oscar Wilde gave a famous speech about the line “I am the love that dare not speak its name”

……………………………. in 1895
