[Sherlock Holmes and Professor Moriarty prepare to have a swordfight on the stage of the Orpheum Theater]



Professor James Moriarty:
Ordinarily I do not bother with half-wits and buffoons.


[Holmes reaches to draw a sword from nearby, but grabs Mrs. Hudson's umbrella by accident]



Holmes:
Buffoons, is it?


[Moriarty looks annoyed. Realizing his mistake, Holmes quickly tosses the umbrella aside and draws a sword for real this time]



Holmes:
Buffoon, is it?



Mrs. Hudson:
[Looking on with Dr. Watson] He'll be killed!



Dr. Watson:
I quite doubt it, Mrs. Hudson. He's in his element now.

Inspector Lestrade:
His Lordship wishes to see Mr. Holmes.



Dr. Watson:
I'm sorry to say he's not here at the moment.



Lord Smithwick:
Oh, how disappointing.



Inspector Lestrade:
Sir, as I said before, I really don't think Mr. Holmes' involvement in this case is at all necessary.



Dr. Watson:
I quite agree.



Inspector Lestrade:
You do?



Dr. Watson:
However, the Crime Doctor is at your disposal.



Inspector Lestrade:
Who the deuce is the Crime Doctor?

Lord Mayor Gerald Fitzwalter Johnson:
Well, Mr. Holmes. Any theories?



Holmes:
Obviously, the victim had been caught in a storm too far from shore to swim for it.



Lord Mayor Gerald Fitzwalter Johnson:
Yes, and with that heavy suitcase attached to his wrist, and the lake being so deep.



Holmes:
Quite. Pulled the poor wretch to the bottom, struggling futilely, flailing desperately as the cold, black water sealed his fate forever Well, it's certainly been a laugh. Thank you.
