SHERLOCK: The stage is set; the curtain rises; we are ready to begin. BRIDE: You promised to keep him safe. You promised! SHERLOCK: Come, Watson, come. The game is afoot! JOHN: Well, Holmes? Surely you must have some theory. SHERLOCK: We all have a past, Watson. Ghosts – they are 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. MARY: Impossible! SHERLOCK: Fear is wisdom in the face of danger. It is nothing to be ashamed of. From the beginning, then. ... A moment. JOHN: Extraordinary. MRS HUDSON: What a life those gentlemen lead. MARY: Yes. Those gentlemen. JOHN: Holmes. Just one thing: tweeds in a morgue? SHERLOCK: Needs must when the devil drives, Watson. 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 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.
And the additional lines from the Australian trailer: SHERLOCK: You’re not a soldier. You’re a doctor. JOHN: No, an army doctor, which means I can break every bone in your body while naming them.
