“My mother always told me that it’s the odd little things that make you different and allow you to stand out. I think it’s all based on this. Keeping this in mind really helps you to be more at ease.”

"It’s a disgrace, sending your little brother into danger like that. Family is all we have in the end, Mycroft Holmes."
I feel like in the context of His Last Vow, Mycroft’s reaction in this scene makes a lot more sense.
I’ve always thought Mycroft’s “Oh, shut up, Mrs. Hudson!” was a strange, and bizarrely strong, reaction on his part. It’s true that he’s capable of being just as callouss and socially inept as Sherlock, but we also know that his position has caused him to develop a certain level of manners and diplomacy. It seems out of character for him to lose his composure just because a sweet old lady chastises him.
Unless she was touching on a sensitive subject.
Imagine that this line in His Last Vow implies what we think it implies: that there was a third Holmes brother, and that Mycroft was somehow involved in his demise.
If he’s harboring guilt about this it’s no wonder he prickles at Mrs. Hudson’s seemingly innocent comment.
I don’t even think girls would want boyfriends if dragons existed, so if the government wants less teen pregnancies they know what they got to do
Watching this (and fearing broken ankles with each loop) I can’t helping thinking about that old quote Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, except backwards and in high heels.
But no, if you watch closely you’ll see she doesn’t even step on the last chair. That means she had to trust that fucker to lift her gently to the ground while he was spinning down onto that chair. That takes major guts. I’d be pissing myself and fearing a broken neck if I were in her place. Kudos to her.
I can’t stop watching this.
i love old science fiction because it’s all like “IT’S THE DISTANT YEAR TWO THOUSAND AND THREE AND MAN IS EXPLORING THE DEEP CORNERS OF THE UNIVERSE” like god bless you old sci-fi you had such high hopes for us
