What I love about this is, you can tell that John thinks Sherlock is just being Sherlock and dragging it out of him, but he's not, he is genuinely surprised when John says he's his best friend. You can practically see Sherlock's brain grind to a halt.
It's a brilliant conversation starter, I do believe I have used it before - not because Sherlock did, but because it's all I could think to say. I'm not exactly great at small talk…haha <-- pretty sure this is a sheldon cooper quote actually
Sherlock doesn't understand the concept "I'd like to say the gun is not my idea! Hostage is good too.">> srry i dont want to mix fandoms but not rly that sorry. This reminded me of page But sherlock doesnt kill his best friend.
