Sherlock Holmes: In my experience, the best frame-ups tend to terminate with the murder of the framee.
[Sherlock picks up Mycroft's car keys]
Mycroft Holmes: What are you doing?
Sherlock Holmes: Proving a point. Your car. I looked it over on the way up here. It's an impressive vehicle. I particularly like the remote starter function.
