Quotes

Sherlock Holmes: [on the pyjama suicides] Indubitably, these murders are the work of a well-organized gang and directing them is one of the most fiendishly clever minds in all Europe today.

Inspector Lestrade: Any notion who?

Sherlock Holmes: I suspect a woman. Do you have tobacco around this place, Watson?

Dr. John H. Watson: Yes, I've packed it. A woman? You amaze me, Holmes. Why a woman?

Sherlock Holmes: Because the method, whatever it is, is particularly subtle and cruel. Feline, not canine.

Inspector Lestrade: Poppy-cock. Canine, feline, quinine, when a bloke does himself in, that's suicide.

Sherlock Holmes: Unless the bloke is driven to suicide and then in that case it's murder.

Dr. John H. Watson: Driven? That *sounds* like a woman, doesn't it?

Sherlock Holmes: Definitely, a female Moriarty. Clever, ruthless... and above all, cautious.

Inspector Lestrade: Him and his meet me here and meet me there. Where the... Where is he anyhow?

Dr. John H. Watson: I'm blessed if I know. He said wait here by the shooting gallery and look inconspicuous.

Inspector Lestrade: Inconspicuous? Oh...

[Lestrade starts whistling and inspecting the ceiling]

Dr. John H. Watson: He said inconspicuous, Lestrade, not half-witted.
