samati asked: John and Sherlock: What would you have done if coming out as a couple had not been taken so well?
Holmes: I’m not sure one could characterize the reaction to our unmasking as “taken so well.”
Watson: Come on, Sherlock, it could have been so much worse.
Holmes: The fact that it could have been worse does not excuse some of the reactions we did encounter.
Watson: What would we have done? Dealt with it, I suppose.
Holmes: I had a plan.
Watson: You had a plan?
Holmes: A brilliant plan.
Watson: Why am I just now hearing about this brilliant plan?
Holmes: I never had the need to implement it.
Watson: Can you hear that little edge of disappointment in his voice? That he never got to show off his brilliant plan? Come on, astonish us.
Watson: Don’t be a git.
Holmes: No, I’m not telling you now.
Watson: Fine, I don’t care, anyway.
Holmes: All I’ll say is that it involved telemark skiing.
Watson: You don’t ski.
Holmes: I could ski.
Watson: You don’t, though.
Holmes: Telemark skiing, the Staten Island Ferry and a bottle of single-malt Scotch. Just a few of the elements of my brilliant plan.
Watson: You are just making this up now.
Holmes: I am offended that you doubt the existence of my plan.
Watson: Go stand in the corner and face the wall.
