SHERLOCK: The stage is set; the curtain rises; we are ready to begin. WOMAN: You promised to keep him safe. You promised! JOHN: Well, Holmes? Surely you must have some theory. SHERLOCK: We all have a past, Watson. Ghosts – they’re the shadows that define our every sunny day. Every great cause has martyrs; every war has suicide missions; and make no mistake – this is war. MAN: Why are you doing this? Tell me who you are! JOHN: What made you like this? SHERLOCK: Oh, Watson. Nothing made me. I made me. WOMAN [who sounds like Loo Brealey to me]: Who are you? I demand you speak! Who are you? SHERLOCK: The name is Sherlock Holmes and the address is two hundred and twenty-one B Baker Street. JOHN: Little use, us, standing here in the dark. After all, this is the nineteenth century. SHERLOCK: I have to finish this. JOHN (handing Sherlock a deerstalker hat): This one. SHERLOCK: Why? JOHN: You’re Sherlock Holmes. Wear the damn hat.
