A transcript of the clip from The Late Show with Stephen Colbert shown on 9 December 2016, for the benefit of those whose first language is not English.

Transcript by Ariane DeVere aka Callie Sullivan. (Last updated 10 December 2016)

The video can be found here.

LESTRADE (leading John out of the living room at 221B): So how’s it going then, fatherhood?
JOHN: Oh, good, great(!) Yeah, amazing.
LESTRADE: Getting any sleep?
JOHN: Christ, no.
(Sherlock is on the landing putting on his jacket. Greg stops at the top of the stairs and turns back.)
LESTRADE: You’re at the beck and call of a screaming, demanding baby, woken up at all hours to obey his every whim. (He looks pointedly at Sherlock.) Must feel very different.
(John lowers his head to try and hide his smile and follows Greg down the stairs.)
SHERLOCK: Sorry, what?
(He follows the other two.)
JOHN: Yes, well, you know how it is. All you do is clean up their mess, pat them on the head.
SHERLOCK: Are you two having a little joke?
[Your transcriber falls off her chair in delight at the return of the mighty ‘k-click.’]
JOHN: Never a word of thanks. Can’t even tell people’s faces apart.
SHERLOCK: This is a joke, isn’t it?
LESTRADE: Then it’s all, ‘Ooh, aren’t you clever? You’re so, so clever!’
(Sherlock stops on the bottom step while John follows Greg to the front door and takes his jacket from the coat hooks.)
SHERLOCK: Is this about me?
LESTRADE (as an aside to John): I think he needs winding.
JOHN: You know, I think that really might be it.
SHERLOCK: No, don’t get it.

Altho my first language is, in fact, English, TY very much! (Some of my favorite parts of your transcripts are the asides you throw in.) 😂

I wish only that BCs hair wasn't parted to the side. I preferred the curls. Perhaps he'll change that further on in the episode. (Like John and his mustache.)

Altho, TBH, I'm just thrilled that the episodes will actually appear within the next few weeks!!

Certainly this clip made me much happier than the official second trailer which just filled me full of dread. I think it's going to be a real mixture of humour and horror, and I'm not sure if I'm looking forward to it or not.

Thank you so much for this!

That is spot-on!

Delightful - thank you! <3

Many thanks! Your transcripts are so much helpful.
Could you clarify the meaning of winding, please? Does it mean 'to take the air'?

In this context it means that Sherlock needs 'burping' like a baby with wind or colic.

Thank you!

Thank you! It's so funny and light-hearted, I'm sure the whole season will be like that, ha ha ha. *is in denial up to her neck*

Thank you so much. I had no chance to see it, so at least I can read it. So hopeful that it will not just be angst with some more angst, and then angst again. I do like it when they mix humour and more serious themes. Like someone said above I also hope Sherlock's hairstyle will come back to the curiler and messier do from the earlier seasons. Thank you once again, you are a gem.

Edited: I only just discovered that you also very kindly provided the link to the video, so I finally watched it, so thank you once again!

I'm glad you got to see the clip. At least this was more fun than the second trailer!
11th-Dec-2016 07:04 pm (UTC)
Awesome... :)

Thank you as always - it's a wonderful job you do.

This excerpt is much more lighthearted; so I guess they're continuing to mix dark and light.

These actors are all rather good at comedic timing!

Aw, they're charming, all three of them. Thanks for passing this on. I didn't understand "winding" until you explained it here.

Once again the writers forget that not everybody watching this is British and so might not understand certain terminology.

But at least there's a k-click this season! Season 3 was sadly lacking in such delights.
