Professor Moriarity has a scheme for stealing the crown jewels from the Tower of London. To get Holmes involved, he persuades a gaucho flute...更多>
Sherlock Holmes: You've a magnificent brain, Moriarty. I admire it. I'd like to present it pickled in alcohol to the London Medical Society. Professor Moriarty: Holmes, you only now barely missed sending me to the gallows. You're the only man in England clever enough to defeat me. I'm going to break you. I'm going to bring off right under your nose the most incredible crime of the century, and you'll never suspect it until it's too late. It'll be the end of you Sherlock Holmes. Then I can retire in peace. I'd like to retire; crime no longer amuses me. I'd like to devote my remaining years to abstract science. Sherlock Holmes: Elementary, my dear Watson. Sherlock Holmes: Very effective, Watson! Doctor John H. Watson: Elementary, my dear Holmes, elementary. Sherlock Holmes: I've decided to accept your case, Miss Brandon. I shall help you all I can. Ann Brandon: Oh, Thank you. Jerrold Hunter: We don't want your interference, Mr. Holmes. Sherlock Holmes: I interfere whenever and wherever I like, Mr. Hunter. Sherlock Holmes: The nose of the police dog, although long and efficient, points in only one direction at a time. Sherlock Holmes: Whatever Watson has found out, you'll knoe inevitably. I have unbounded confidence in his lack of discretion. Dawes: You wanted to see me, sir? Professor Moriarty: I'm away for a few weeks, Dors, and I come back to find my anthurium magenta, my incomparable anthurium magenta, withered, ruined... Dawes: I can't understand it, sir; I took good care of all the plants. Professor Moriarty: Did you water them? Dawes: Every day - just as you told me, sir. Professor Moriarty: Then how does it happen that I find a spider's web spun across the spout of the watering can? Dawes: That can happen overnight, sir. Professor Moriarty: Overnight, huh? Then you didn't water them today? Dawes: There's been so much to do, sir, preparing for your coming back. Professor Moriarty: Nothing is as important as the care of my flowers. Through your neglect, this flower has died. You've murdered a flower! Dawes: Why, I'm sorry, sir. Professor Moriarty: To think for merely murdering a man I was incarcerated for six whole weeks in a filthy prison cell. Dawes: A pity, sir! Professor Moriarty: A travesty on justice! Dawes: Quite so, sir. Professor Moriarty:
And for this crime, Dors, you should be flogged, broken on the wheel, drawn and quartered...
Dawes: Yes, sir. Will that be all, sir? Professor Moriarty: ...and boiled in oil! Dawes: Thank you, sir. Professor Moriarty: Go away. Dawes: Yes, sir.
