The Woman in Green (1945)
Professor Moriarty: We've had many encounters in the past. You hope to place me on the gallows. I tell you I will never stand upon the gallows. But, if you are instrumental in any way in bringing about my destruction, you will not be alive to enjoy your satisfaction.
Sherlock Holmes: Then we shall walk together through the gates of Eternity hand in hand.
Professor Moriarty: What a charming picture that would make.
Sherlock Holmes: Yes, wouldn't it. I really think it might be worth it.
Sherlock Holmes: And now, Professor Moriarity, what can I do for you?
Professor Moriarty: Everything that I have to say to you has already crossed your mind.
Sherlock Holmes: And my answer has no doubt crossed yours.
Professor Moriarty: That's final?
Sherlock Holmes: What do you think?
Dr. John H. Watson: An evil man, Holmes, but... what a horrible death!
Sherlock Holmes: Better than he deserved.
Dr. John H. Watson: What are you thinking of?
Sherlock Holmes: I'm thinking of all the women who can come and go in safety in the streets of London tonight. The stars watch in the heavens, and in our own little way, we too, old friend, are privileged to watch over our city.
Dr. John H. Watson: There ought to be a law against fat people owning little dickie-birds.
Lydia Marlowe: I was right, Mr Holmes, you are a difficult subject.
Sherlock Holmes: Thank you.
Sherlock Holmes: What a beautiful view, Watson. I'm quite enjoying it.
Dr. John H. Watson: No, you're not - your hypnotized. Stand still, Holmes, stand still.
Sherlock Holmes: Stop it, Watson. I'm quite alright.
Dr. John H. Watson: You mean you're not hypnotized?
Sherlock Holmes: Certainly not!
Dr. John H. Watson: Then what on earth are you doing, you idiot? Get down!
Inspector Gregson of Scotland Yard: [voiceover] I won't forget that morning, not if I live to be a hundred. I counted the men as they marched out of the yard; they'd hardly slept for weeks. We of the CID had slept even less, but the nightmare that kept us awake was all the same nightmare. That's why we weren't surprised when the commissioner asked us up to the conference room for a bit of a talk. He'd talked to us plenty, we knew that, but it didn't help any to know what was ahead of us.
Inspector Gregson of Scotland Yard: I put my pride in my pocket and went to see the man who'd so often helped Inspector Lastrade and myself in the past - Sherlock Holmes!
Inspector Gregson of Scotland Yard: What are you looking at, Mr. Holmes?
Sherlock Holmes: Looking at a very handsome woman, not born to the purple, but giving an excellent imitation.
Sherlock Holmes: If we could just trace those missing fingers!
Inspector Gregson of Scotland Yard: If we could only drain the English Channel, we might find a penny.
Professor Moriarty: Holmes has one weakness, his insatiable curiosity. If you can rouse that, you can lead him anywhere.
