IRENE ADLER
Brainy's the new sexy.

IRENE ADLER
I don't understand
SHERLOCK HOLMES
Try to.
IRENE ADLER
Why?
SHERLOCK HOLMES
Because you cater to the whims of the pathetic and take your clothes off to make an impression. Stop boring me and think. It's the new sexy.

IRENE ADLER
Everything I said. It's not real. I was just playing the game.
SHERLOCK HOLMES
I know. And this is just losing.

IRENE ADLER
Somebody loves you! If I had to punch that face, I'd avoid the nose and teeth too.

Coventry.
IRENE ADLER
Never been. Is it nice?
SHERLOCK HOLMES
Where's John?
IRENE ADLER
He went out. A couple hours ago.
SHERLOCK HOLMES
I was just talking to him.
IRENE ADLER
He said you do that.

IRENE ADLER
Mr. Holmes, if it was the end of the world, if this was the very last night, would you have dinner with me?
MRS. HUDSON
[off screen] Sherlock!
IRENE ADLER
Too late...
SHERLOCK HOLMES
It's not the end of the world, it's Mrs. Hudson.

IRENE ADLER
Mr. Holmes, I think we need to talk.
SHERLOCK HOLMES
So do I. I think there are a number of aspects I'm still not quite clear on...
IRENE ADLER
Not you, junior. You're done now.

SHERLOCK HOLMES
[reluctantly impressed] Oh, you're rather good.
IRENE ADLER
[returning the compliment] You're not so bad. [intense gazing into eyes ensues]
DR. JOHN WATSON
[interrupting the pause] Hamish. [startled looks from IA an SH] John Hamish Watson. Just if you are looking for baby names.

DR. JOHN WATSON
You... flirted with Sherlock Holmes?
IRENE ADLER
*At* him. He never replies.
DR. JOHN WATSON
Oh, Sherlock always replies. To *everything*. He's Mr. Punchline. He will outlive God trying to have the last word.
IRENE ADLER
[amused] Does that make me special?
DR. JOHN WATSON
I don't know, maybe.

IRENE ADLER
Oh, dear God. Look at the poor man. You don't actually think I was interested in you...? Why? Because you're the great Sherlock Holmes, the clever detective in the funny hat?
SHERLOCK HOLMES
No. [takes Irene's wrist and whispers in her ear] Because I took your pulse. Elevated. Your pupils dilated.
