Ha! Ha! A trick question in the beginning. Holmes never says that in the Doyle books. It is only later that Holmes was made to say this in movie and serial adaptations.

The Quizzes

The Musgrave Ritual.

Trivia Quiz

I consider that a manís brain originally is like a little empty attic, and you have to stock it with such furniture as you choose... Depend upon it there comes a time when for every addition of knowledge you forget something that you knew before. It is of the highest importance, therefore, not to have useless facts elbowing out the useful ones.

And, first, one or two questions, Mr. Wilson.

The whole world will know the facts presently, so there can be no harm if I discuss them here.

Just a Minute

One moment, Lestrade... the gentleman was about to give us an account of this very interesting affair...

The Norwood Builder.

Write it down, man, write it down! 

The Mazarin Stone.

Dumb Charades (English and Hindi)

The features are given to man as the means by which he shall express... and yours are faithful servants.
