** In ''Snow Angels'', Holmes and Watson are tracking an ambulance full of stolen paper money. Since power is down, Holmes has gone old school with a paper map; he uses Clyde the Tortoise with a cross taped to his back as a stand-in for the ambulance. While the protagonists discuss the case, Clyde is busy stuffing himself with [[http://www.dictionary.com/browse/lettuce lettuce]].[[note]]DontExplainTheJoke: The pun may not make sense to those unfamiliar with U.S. currency, which (unlike the colorful bills found in other countries) is dichromatic. The backs of the bills are printed with green ink, thus "greenbacks", or "lettuce."[[/note]]

** A rare case of neither of them is in an episode where they investigate the murder of a doctor who was a wealthy Doomsday prepper. The man had invested thousands of dollars in a high-tech "bunker" for the rich unaware it was all a scam. Holmes and Watson confront a suspect who turns out to be a reporter about to expose the scam himself. When asked how he knew, he explains that his attention was caught by the complete lack of a paper trail for the thousands of galleons of fuel and numerous supplies such a place should have.

** Shinwell Johnson is a former criminal who's trying to straighten his life out and becomes acquainted with Sherlock because Joan used to treat him when she was a surgeon.

His teenage daughter, after not seeing him for so many years, seeks him out for help getting a gang member who's been pestering her to go away. He succeeds, but his daughter ultimately rejects him for it. She bluntly tells her father that she only sought him out because she had no other choice with her problem, and that she wants nothing to do with him after that.
