* KnifeThrowingAct: Footballer Phil Simms appears as himself in "Just a Regular Irregular". Apparently he is the world's greatest knife thrower and only went into football because there is no money in the impalement arts. He is Sherlock's knife-throwing expert and Sherlock consults with him about how a murder during a knife-throwing act at a circus in the 1930s could have been committed. Simms tells Sherlock that his theory is impossible and ten demonstrates his knife-throwing prowess before leaving.

** In "While You Were Sleeping", after the murderer's sister said she was gonna try to help her:
-->'''Holmes:''' There were two pretermitted heirs, Ms. Ellison. Yvette killed the second one yesterday, so tell me: why was she still in a coma today? Why didn't she "miraculously" wake up this morning? Who did she have left to kill? Do you think perhaps it was someone who stood between her and the ''entirety'' of the family fortune?

* AllThereInTheManual: Holmes being a needle junkie
-->''Sherlock Holmes took his bottle from the corner of the mantel-piece and his hypodermic syringe from its neat morocco case. With his long, white, nervous fingers he adjusted the delicate needle, and rolled back his left shirt-cuff. For some little time his eyes rested thoughtfully upon the sinewy forearm and wrist all dotted and scarred with innumerable puncture-marks. Finally he thrust the sharp point home, pressed down the tiny piston, and sank back into the velvet-lined arm-chair with a long sigh of satisfaction.''
-->--''Literature/TheSignOfTheFour'' by Creator/ArthurConanDoyle, quite literally on Page 1
