** It's interesting that someone with Sherlock's great intellectual and observational capacity has such a hard time remembering John's girlfriends. Only three are mentioned, and unless Sherlock were purposely forgetting or confusing them, he should be able to remember who they are. It's almost like it's a way to make them uncomfortable or emphasize just how unimportant they are. ** John is incredibly understanding and patient when it comes to Sherlock's difficult personality, mood swings and rude behaviour. He is willing to put up with a lot of stuff that is definitely ''not fine'' [[spoiler: like being abandoned in the middle of London, being ordered around or screamed at for no reason or even being poisoned, as an experiment]] and still considers Sherlock his "best friend" and stays faithfully devoted to him through all the mess they get into. Sherlock, on the other hand, is far less unthankful than it might seem. He lets John's influence change him for the better, even if becoming emotionally attached to someone is dangerous for him and later becomes his Achilles Heel. There are a lot of things Sherlock does to make up for John's care and loyalty. Most are easily overlooked, but genuinely heartwarming gestures like offering to clean up the hopeless mess in their flat, paying John a compliment every now and then and cracking jokes to make him laugh. ** Sherlock always seems unduly pleased whenever John compliments his deductions.

** While the MistakenForGay jokes are more of a RunningGag than genuine HoYay, take a close look at John's reactions whenever people assume him and Sherlock to be a couple: Most of the time, John is quick to point out that he is "not [Sherlock's] date" or "not gay", but not once did he deny being interested in Sherlock. It gets even more obvious in the second season, when he talks to Irene and claims he is "not ''actually'' gay". He also doesn't deny being jealous, he simply says that "[Sherlock and I] are not a couple". Take that as you will. ** [[LoggingOntoTheFourthWall John's]] [[http://www.johnwatsonblog.co.uk/ blog]] is a source of HoYay of the finest quality. The loads of [[LikeAnOldMarriedCouple domestic bickering]] alone are quite suggestive, but the way John spends a lot of time describing, complaining about or practically fanboying over Sherlock (sometimes all of the above at once) is really anything but subtle. It's especially noticable in the earlier posts, when Sherlock and John have just met. John, who has had nothing to blog about, suddenly goes on and on about the charismatic "madman" who wants him to be his flatmate. Note how John's usual dry writing style suddenly changes into incoherent ramblings and repetitive run-on sentences of breathless excitement whenever he talks about his new acquaintance. Sherlock sure must have blown his mind.

** No matter what situation he is in, Sherlock almost always remains completely level-headed and calculating. Unless, of course, you threaten John. Every time this happens, Sherlock breaks into panic immediately - so much, in fact, [[NotSoStoic he starts to stammer and stops thinking rationally]]. ** There's also the case of John's dating life. Sherlock is constantly shown to be putting a strain on it, ridiculing John's romantic gestures (like when he comments on John's emails) and openly insulting his girlfriends. John contributes by repeatedly changing his plans for Sherlock, including those he makes with his girlfriends. ** It's subtle, but go ahead and try to count the times when John and Sherlock gaze into each other's eyes. You'll be surprised. As one fan said, "Friends don't look at friends like that."

** If you take the line ''"Pass me your revolver, I have a sudden need to use it"'' and combine it with all the gun/dick comparisons made in the Moriarty scene, you get a pretty good idea of how Johnlock-Conspirators form their theories. Whether this [[IknewIt holds water]] or [[{{Jossed}} not]] is up to you to decide.

** * Deliberately invoked by Moriarty '''so many times.''' *** At one point, he tells ''' Obviously the showrunners have thrown all subtlety out the window before writing any of his lines. Andrew Scotts voice ''really'' doesn't help. -->It's a dangerous habit, to ''finger'' loaded firearms in the pockets of one's dressing gown ... [[CallBack Or are you just pleased to see me]]?\\ By the way, you have a suprisingly comfortable bed.\\ Exactly, let's stop playing, we don't need toys to kill each other .. where's the intimacy in that? \\ **His comment after Sherlock and John have a flirtatious exchange: -->Uurgh, why don't you two just elope, for god's sake? ** Plus, the whole deal with Moriarty sucking his gun is so sexually charged, it's actually suprising the episode only has a TV-14/PG-13 rating. And as already noticed by those who know Moffat, the bit with Sherlock and Moriarty pointing their guns at each other is ''definitely'' a dick joke[[note]]Notice how Sherlocks is considerably bigger [[/note]]. * The conversation between John and Sherlock as they wait for the ghost to elope. attack outside Lady Carmichaels house has such a strong focus on Sherlocks supressed sexuality that it actually led many fans to believe the Sherlock/John ship is going to be cannon: --> John: Why do you need to be alone?\\ Sherlock: If you are referring to romantic entanglement, Watson, I rather fear you are, as I have often explained before, emotion is abhorrent to me.\\ ...\\ John: That is the version of you that I present to the public. The brain without a heart. The calculating machine. I write all of that, Holmes, and the readers lap it up. But I do not believe it.\\ ...\\ John: Well, you must have had ...\\ Sherlock: Had what?\\ John: You know.\\ Sherlock: No.\\ John: Experiences.\\ Sherlock: Pass me your revolver, I have a sudden need to use it.\\ John: Damn it, Holmes, you are flesh and blood, you have feelings, you have... You must have... ''Impulses''.\\ ** As if this dialouge between Sherlock and John wasn't bad enough in and of itself, all their conversations are [[spoiler:actually just Sherlock ''talking to himself''. His subconscious sure does bother ''a lot'' with his (supressed) sexuality.]]

Due to the overwhelming amount of 'HoYay' in this show, it has been theorized by some fans since season three that it is the intention of the writers to eventually canonize the Johnlock (Sherlock/John) ship. This is known as TJLC. !!HoYay: * In General
