Dr. John Watson
: I don't understand. Charles Magnussen
: You should have that on a t-shirt. Dr. John Watson
: [... much later
] I still don't understand. Charles Magnussen
: And there's the back of the t-shirt.
[at Sherlock's apartment
] Sherlock Holmes
: I understood we were meeting at your office. Charles Magnussen
: This IS my office. Well, it is now.
: Best thing about the English... you're so domesticated, always standing around, apologizing, keeping your little heads down. You can do what you like here. No one's ever gonna stop you. A nation of herbivores. I've interests all over the world but, uh, everything starts in England. If it works here, I'd try it in a REAL country. The United Kingdom, eh? Petri dish to the Western world.
: Everything's available for a price. You making me an offer? Sherlock Holmes
: A christmas present. Charles Magnussen
: Then what are you giving me for Christmas, Mr. Holmes? Sherlock Holmes
: My brother.
: Mycroft's pressure point is his junkie detective brother Sherlock. Sherlock's pressure point is his best friend John Watson. John Watson's pressure point is his wife. I own John Watson's wife, I own Mycroft.
: Come on, for Mary, bring me your face.
: [to John
] Let me flick your face.
Lady Diana Swinstead
: On my knees, I beg you... I implore you to show mercy. Charles Augustus Milverton
: I'm not in the business of mercy, madam.

: Surely, it would be better for you to take the substantial sum we offer than to ruin this young woman's career, which can profit you in no way. Charles Augustus Milverton
: There, you're mistaken. An exposure would profit me indirectly to a considerable degree. I have eight or ten similar cases maturing. Ah, if it is circulated that I have made a severe example of Lady Eva, I shall find the rest much more open to reason. Do you see my point?
