Eurus’s quotes

Good and bad are fairytales. We have evolved to attach an emotional significance to what is  nothing more than a survival strategy of the pack animal. We’re conditioned to invest divinity in utility. Good isn’t really good, evil isn’t really wrong, bottoms aren’t really pretty. You are a prisoner of your own meat.

Emotional context, Sherlock, it destroys you every time. (Eurus, The Final Problem)

Deep water, Sherlock, all your life, in your dreams. Deep waters.

The East Wind is coming, Sherlock

Sherlock’s quotes

This isn’t torture, this is vivisection. We’re experiencing science from the perspective of lab rats.

Family is always difficult (Sherlock, The Final Problem)

– Who the hell are you?
– My name’s Sherlock Holmes
– The detective.
– The pirate.

Your mind has created the perfect metaphor. You're high above us, all alone in the sky, and you understand everything except how to land.

Greg Lestrade saying…

Police officer: Is that him, sir, Sherlock Holmes?
GREG Lestrade: Fan, are you?
Police officer: Well, he’s a great man, sir.
GREG Lestrade: No, he is better than that. He’s a good one.

Baker Street boys…

P.S. I know you two. And if I’m gone, I know what you could become.  Because I know who you really are. A junky who solves crimes to get high. And the doctor who never came from the war. Will you listen to me? Who you really are, it doesn’t matter. It’s all about the legend, the stories, the adventures.
There is a last refuge for the desparate, the unvolved, the persecuted. There is a final court of appeal for everyone. When life gets too strange, too impossible, too frightening, there is always one last hope. When all else fails, there are two men sitting arguing in a scruffy flat like they’ve always been there, and they always will. THE best  and wisest men I have ever known. My Baker Street boys – Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson. (MARY Watson)
