A man should keep his little brain attic stocked with all the furniture that he is likely to use, and the rest he can put away in the lumber room of his library, where he can get it if he wants it.

...when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.


Gregory (Scotland Yard detective): "Is there any other point to which you would wish to draw my attention?"
Holmes: "To the curious incident of the dog in the night-time."
Gregory: "The dog did nothing in the night-time."
Holmes: "That was the curious incident."

The brain attic is one of my favorites too, I just can't remember which story it's in...
my favorite line from the current movies is "... he doesn't mind."

Something tells me I am going to have to renew my acquaintance with Mr. Holmes. I was a mere lad when I last encountered him. I believe the complete works are free on Kindle, in which case I'm good to go.

The brain attic was indeed in the Five Orange Pips, but it was a reminiscence of the passage in A Study in Scarlet.

Sherlock Holmes: You don't mind breaking the law?

Dr. John Watson: Not in the least.

Sherlock Holmes: Nor running the chance of arrest?

Dr. John Watson: Not in a good cause.

Sherlock Holmes: Oh, the cause is excellent.

Dr. John Watson: Well, then I am your man.

"It's impossible to sustain a smoking habit in London these days. Bad news for brain work"

Okay, that's from the BBC series and not the original source material, but still...

Anyone else who has watched ep3 from the third series - how disappointing that the smoking scene with Sherlock and Mycroft was cigarettes rather than grand pipes?
