‘Sherlock’ season 3: Our favorite quotes

Sherlock is sadly on hiatus, again, but we picked twenty of our favorite quotes from series 3. Did your favorite Sherlock quotes make the list?

“I think I’ll surprise John. He’ll be delighted!”

“You think so? Hm.”

“Pop round to Baker Street. Who knows, jump out of a cake?”


“Two years. I thought… I thought you were dead. Hm? Now you let me grieve. Hm? How could you do that? How?”

“Wait. Before you do anything you might later regret, one question, let me ask one question. Are you really going to keep that?”


“I don’t shave for Sherlock Holmes.”
“You should put that on a t-shirt.”


“Don’t be smart.”

“That takes me back. Don’t be smart, Sherlock, I’m the smart one.”
“I am the smart one.”

“I used to think I was an idiot.”


“Oh, please, killing me? That’s so two years ago.”


“So, in fact… you mean…”

“I’m your… Best…”



“The point I’m trying to make is that I am the most unpleasant, rude, ignorant and all-round obnoxious arsehole that anyone could possibly have the misfortune to meet. I am dismissive of the virtuous, unaware of the beautiful and uncomprehending in the face of the happy. So, if I didn’t understand I was being asked to be best man, it is because I never expected to be anybody’s best friend.”


“You think I’m a drunk?”

“No, no… You look… well.”
“I am.”

“How’s… Tom?”
“Not a sociopath.”

“Still? Good.”
“And we’re having quite a lot of sex.”


“You are not a puzzle solver; you never have been. You’re a drama queen. Now there is a man in there who’s about to die. The game is on. Solve it!”


“Don’t panic. None of you panic. Absolutely no reason to panic.”
“And you would know of course?”

“Yes, I would. You are already the best parents in the room, look at all the practice you’ve had.”
“What practice?”

“Well, you’re hardly going to need me around now that you have a real baby on the way.”
