"I'm here, aren't I? That's closer than I'd ever expect."
"In the living room!"

"She's been very helpful."
"She's staring at her blackberry for two hours!"
"Now, now. Don't offend her, she's at your bedside, at your call."
"I don't think she's even listening anymore."

"I prefer the term 'assistant', if you don't mind, Detective."
"Could you just be more comforting, Mycroft?"
"Well. Uhn. Of course. I'm sorry."
"Ms. Morstan, give the detective a cuddle, please."
