So I thought this would be funny, as an addendum to the discussion of the sexism of Sherlock. Add more below!
Steven Moffat adapts Jane Eyre:
“Reader, he married me.”
Steven Moffat adapts Pride and Prejudice:
“It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single woman in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a husband.”
Steven Moffat adapts Measure for Measure:
Duke: What’s mine is yours, and what is yours is mine.
Isabella: Oh, alright then.
Steven Moffat remains faithful to Ulysses:
“… and then I asked him with my eyes to ask again yes and then he asked me would I yes to say yes my mountain flower and first I put my arms around him yes and drew him down to me so he could feel my breasts all perfume yes and his heart was going like mad and yes I said yes I will Yes.”
Steven Moffat adapts A Doll’s House:
Nora: Goodbye. [She goes out through the hall.]
Torvald [sinks down on a chair at the door and buries his face in his hands]: Nora! Nora! [Looks round, and rises.] Empty. She is gone. [A hope flashes across his mind.] The most wonderful thing of all–?
[The sound of a door gently, lovingly opening is heard from below.]
Steven Moffat adapts Merchant of Venice:
Graziano: My lord Bassanio gave his ring away
Unto the judge that begged it.
Portia: The ring is nothing to me, it ever was
My lord Bassanio’s to give.
Steven Moffat adapts “A Scandal in Bohemia”:
Irene Adler: Please…. You’re right. I won’t even last six months. [She starts to cry.]
Sherlock: Sorry about dinner. [Exit]
