Albert Shlessinger: Why, you're a common burgler!
Sherlock Holmes: And my friend is a dangerous ruffian. Together we mean to go through your house.
Sherlock Holmes: Watson! Quick, man! It's life or death - a hundred chances on death and one on life!

Sherlock Holmes: Your further aliases I will not bore you by repeating.
Dr. John Watson: I was a soldier in India, sir. I've shot nobler creatures than you.
Sherlock Holmes: What has happened to any brains that God has given me?

The landscape is as handsome as it is reported. I still entertain the hope that I can prevail upon you to join me. I appreciate, of course, that the beauties of nature mean little to you, but I believe you would have found some of the guests at my hotel most intriguing.
