Clever Lines

I like a television show with clever dialog, and the one I’m watching fits that bill.  It’s the BBC series Sherlock, and if you haven’t seen it, you’re missing out.

The following two quips came in very close proximity to each other, and definitely fulfill the “clever” requirement.

“Punch me.  In the face.  Didn’t you hear?” – Holmes
“I always hear ‘punch me in the face’ when you’re speaking, but it’s usually subtext.” – Watson

“I think you’re damaged, delusional, and believe in a higher power.  In your case, it’s yourself.” – Irene Adler, speaking to Holmes

It’s the end of a long work week, so I’m going to leave you with those and go back to enjoying my show.  I’m also working in earnest on the title for my NaNo novel, so I might have something to share tomorrow!
