We are the Benedict Cumberbatch Appreciation Society - or BCAS (which is pronounced Beecass, not B-C-A-S). This is a highly esteemed organistion with two founding members - BB and HAN. We are not the average fangirl stalkers mind.... oh no. We do have other things in our lives apart from stalking a certain someone, but it should be recognised that Mr Benedict Timothy Carlton Cumberbatch deserves some recognition for his AWESOMENESS and general gobsmacking acting. We can't promise that we will blog all the time, but hopefully keep up with the latest Cumberbatch gossip as well as our reviews and ramblings. If you feel you are a worthy Cumberbatch supporter, feel free to subscribe, comment and input into the newly founded shrine for this amazing actor. Cheers.

The Reichenbach Fall - Quotes

Hello my dears,
So here is the thing: due to the disgusting, wrist-slitting amount of work that BB and I have been burdened with over the few weeks, we have monumentally cocked up and have not written anything on the blog about Sherlock 2 episode 2 and 3. We will rectify this glaring flaw in the near future, that is a promise. And if we don't, you can skin us, and then make us into shoes. As the quoting maestro of this little blogging duo, I also want to explain my method for getting these gems of literary genius on paper. On Sunday nights I watch the episode and fall in love with it all over again. Then during the week, I attempt to watch the episode at least twice more and write out all the quotes by hand. Then I type them up on Thursday or Friday in the week. This is a long but thoroughly enjoyable process, but of course I make a few mistakes and mis-quote some of it or miss some out whilst frantically writing the line before. To be honest, Sherlock is so gobsmackingly brilliant that I end up writing out the whole script for you. I think it would also be a great opportunity to say that I do not own any of the material in the quote posts - I am merely sharing the awesomess of Sherlock with all of the fans out there. Here are the quotes for 'The Reichenbach Fall', the last episode of Series 2:

Watson: My best friend, Sherlock Holmes, is dead.

Watson: Say thank you.
Sherlock: Why?
Watson: Just say it.
Sherlock: Thank You.

Sherlock: A tiepin, I don’t wear ties.

 Watson: Sarcasm.
Sherlock: Yes.

Sherlock: Boffin, boffin Sherlock Holmes.

Sherlock: Why is it always the hat photograph (punches newspaper!)
Watson: Bachelor, bachelor John Watson.
Sherlock: What kind of hat is it anyway?
Watson: What the hell are they implying?
Sherlock: Is it a cap, why has it got two fronts?
Watson: It’s a deerstalker…frequently seen in the company of bachelor John Watson.
Sherlock: How can you stalk a deer with a hat?
Watson: Confirmed bachelor John Watson.
Sherlock: Is it some sort of death Frisbee?
Watson Ok this is too much we need to be more careful.
Sherlock: It’s got flaps, ear flaps, its an ear hat John…what do you mean more careful?
Watson: I mean, this isn’t a deerstalker now; this is a Sherlock Holmes hat. I mean that you’re not exactly a private detective anymore; you are this far from famous.
Sherlock: Oh, it’ll pass.

Watson: It’s your phone.
Sherlock: Mmm, keeps doing that.

Moriarty: No Rush.

Watson: Sherlock.
Sherlock: Not now.
Watson: Sherlock.
Sherlock: Not now.
Watson: He’s back.

Watson: Intelligent fine, let’s give smart arse a wide berth.
Sherlock: I will just be myself
Watson: Are you listening to me?

Sherlock: You repel me.

Sherlock: First, James Moriarty isn’t a man at all.

Judge: Do you think you could survive for just a few minutes without showing off?

Watson: What did I say? I said don’t get clever.
Sherlock: I can’t just turn it off like a tap.

Watson: Don’t do that.
Sherlock: Do what?
Watson: The look
Sherlock: Look?
Watson: The look, you’re doing the look again.                
Sherlock: Well I cant see it can I? (Looks in mirror) It’s my face
Watson: Yes and it’s doing a thing, you’re doing a thing that says we both know what’s really going on here face.
Sherlock: We do.
Watson: No I don’t, which is why I find the face so annoying.

Sherlock: Most people knock, well then your not most people I suppose.

Moriarty: Every fairy-tale needs a good old-fashioned villain.

Moriarty: What’s the final problem, I did tell you but you didn’t listen.

Moriarty: Do you find it hard to say you don’t know?
Sherlock: I don’t know.

Moriarty: Honey, you should see me in a crown.

Moriarty: Suddenly, I am Mr Sex.           

Sherlock: What is it all for?

Moriarty: Falling is just like flying, it’s just that there’s a more permanent destination.

Moriarty: I owe you.

Mycroft: We don’t want a repeat of 1972.

Watson: I was thinking about doing a drinks thing for the neighbours.
Mycroft: I don’t think you want to.

Watson: Why don’t you talk to Sherlock if you are so concerned about him? Oh God, don’t tell me
Mycroft: There’s too much history between us John. Old scores, resentments.
Watson: Nicked all his smurfs? Broke his action man?

Lestrade: Isn’t it great to be working with a celebrity?

Sherlock: Brilliant Anderson.
Anderson: Really.
Sherlock: Brilliant impression of an idiot.

Watson: Having fun?
Sherlock: Starting to.
Watson: Try to stop the smiling? Kidnapped children?

Sherlock: The more they ate the faster they died.
Watson: Sherlock.

Lestrade: Don’t let it get to you, I always feel like screaming when you walk into a room, well so do most people.

Sherlock: This is my cab. You get the next one.
Watson: Why?
Sherlock: Because you might talk.

Sherlock: He died because I shook his hand.

Sherlock: Dust is eloquent.
Mrs Hudson: What’s he on about?

Mrs Hudson: Cameras? Here, I’m in my nighty!

Watson: Sherlock, I don’t want the world believing that you’re…
Sherlock: I’m a what
Watson: That, you’re a fraud.

Watson: No one could fake being such an annoying dick all the time.

Watson: They’re all queuing up to slap on the handcuffs. Every single officer that you’ve made feel like a tit.

Watson: Sherlock, we are going to need to coordinate.

Th e episode made me cry untill the end. cant wait for series three. Am I your only commenter? If I am, I am so pleased. Sherlock is not dead. Poor John doesn't know! I cried all night afterwards. I have both series on dvd. I watch every episode at every chance I get. This is the best website ever. Sherlock, if you are reading this, I love you, miss you. Also, can you help me. My friends think I'm crazy doing everything the way Sherlock would. I eat, sleep, play, write, even email as him and like him. Am
I crazy?

Sherlock and John #1 fan ever!

Dearest Sherlock and John #1 fan ever,
I also found the last episode very emotional - Martin Freeman did an excellent job in the therapist scenes. Thank you very much for following our blog, and if you have any suggestions or comments, please carry on communicating with us, we are only too happy to help. If you are a true fan, we would be very grateful if you could share our blog with your friends and family. We would really enjoy some more commenters and subscribers.
However, we need to put the world of Sherlock into context - to fully appreciate the work of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, enjoy the novels, the films (past and present) and the BBC adaptation by Moffat and Gatiss, we must understand that Sherlock Holmes was just a figment of an author's imagination. There is no one like Sherlock, nor will there ever be. I do not think that you are crazy, but to gain full enjoyment and satisfaction from Doyle's writing and its more modern franchises, we all need to acknowledge that there is a fine line between fact and fiction. We are held firmly in the present, whilst Sherlock, and many other fictional characters are separated from reality. That is why BB and I only appreciate Sherlock and Benedict Cumberbatch's other endeavours. I hope you can see that eating, sleeping, playing, writing and emailing like Sherlock makes you no more of a fan than others who passively enjoy Sherlock's magic.

Kudos-your blog is awesome! Keep at it. I will tell my fellow fans. This show, this episode has me totally obsessed. Absolutely brilliant. Heartbroken and can't believe it will be at least a year until we get more!

I know exactly what you mean. I am just messing around, being only a child myself (11 in May), I like Ben very much. My mates are into SH now and do not think I am crazy. I have taken my imagination of SH down a peg or two and now enjoy him in a more subtle way. Thanks again, keep up the good work!

It's been a while but I'm rewatching it and I've picked up some more funny quotations :)

John: you dong want them thinking you're stupid or wrong.  
Sherlock: no, that would just make them stupid or wrong. 

Sherlock: joining me?
John: apparently it's against the law to chin the superintendent

John: just so you are aware, the gun is his idea, I'm just his…
Sherlock: hostage! (points gun at John's head. 
John: hostage... Yeah that works…
