* MaleGaze: "You've Got Me, Who's Got You" opens with Sherlock forcing some members of Everyone to donate their clothes to a clothing drive Joan is participating in. This means literally the clothes they're wearing, making them disrobe there in the brownstone. There are several schlubby guys and one reasonably good-looking woman.
