Quotes

Sherlock Holmes: This is a great country, Watson.

Dr. John H. Watson: It certainly is, my dear fellow.

Sherlock Holmes: Look. Up there ahead. The Capitol - the very heart of this democracy.

Dr. John H. Watson: Democracy - the only hope for the future, eh, Holmes?

Sherlock Holmes: It is not given for us to peer into the mysteries of the future. But in the days to come, the British and American people for their own safety and the good of all will walk together in majesty and in justice and in peace.

Dr. John H. Watson: That's magnificent. I quite agree with you.

Sherlock Holmes: Not with me. With Mr. Winston Churchill. I was quoting from the speech he made not long ago in that very building.

Sherlock Holmes: [Ahrens of the Home Office is explaining the situation about Pettibone having secretly taken a legal document to Washington] What form was this document in?

Mr. Ahrens: It was typed -- on two sheets of legal paper.

Dr. John H. Watson: Two sheets! That's too bulky to swallow!

Sherlock Holmes: And dry, Watson, fearfully dry -- especially *legal* papers!

[no one bats an eye at the horrible pun...]
