Another Famous Quotation

ALSO – you know how “Elementary” is pretty much the most famous Sherlock Holmes line ever? In the original stories, he only ever says it once. On page 2 of “The Crooked Man,” Watson cries “Excellent!” in response to one of Holmes’ deductions, and Holmes promptly responds, “Elementary.” He doesn’t even add “my dear Watson.”

It’s funny which lines turn out to be character-defining trademarks.
