Dr. Mortimer: You interest me very much, Mr. Holmes. I had hardly expected so dolichocephalic a skull, or such well-marked supra-orbital development. Would you have any objection to my running my finger along your parietal fissure?

Sherlock Holmes: *Please*, Dr. Mortimer.

Dr. Mortimer: A cast of your skull Sir, until the original becomes available?

[Holmes bursts into laughter]

Dr. Mortimer: It is not my intention to be fulsome, but I confess, I covet your skull.

Sherlock Holmes: Behave and sit down, Dr. Mortimer.

[Gesturing to the chair]

Dr. Mortimer: [dog sits beside Mr. Mortimer] Spot. Yes, good boy.

Sherlock Holmes: Well, I presume it was not your phrenological passion which drew you to Baker Street.

Dr. Mortimer: Unfortunately it was not, Sir.
