Mary Morstan Quotes:

  • [Watson and Mary enter Baker Street to find Holmes hanging from a noose]

    [pokes Holmes sharply]

    Dr. John Watson: Holmes!

    Sherlock Holmes: [wakes up] Oh, good afternoon.

    Dr. John Watson: Worse things could happen.

    Mary Morstan: [noticing] What's wrong with Gladstone?

    Sherlock Holmes: You?

    Dr. John Watson: I don't think that's...

    Sherlock Holmes: I don't know if that's...

    Dr. John Watson: Not at dinner.

    Sherlock Holmes: Perhaps some other time.

    Mary Morstan: I insist.

    Sherlock Holmes: You insist?

    Dr. John Watson: You remember we've discussed this.

  • Det. Insp. Atherly Jones: I want to know where the pearls are.

    Dr. John H. Watson: Then they are at the bottom of the river where we can find them... so now you'll be so terribly rich, I can't even claim you as a friend, much less ask you...

    Mary Morstan: What?

    Sherlock Holmes: Sorry the jewels are so distasteful to you, Ms. Marston, but I have the pearls. I took them from Jonathan Small when we first came to grips. I didn't want them to get wet, so I'm afraid you'll have to have them back
