    Summary

    "When I first met John Watson, I had just moved to Baker Street and he had been home from Afghanistan nearly six months. We'd both been evicted about the same time: I for a disagreement with my landlord about chemical experiments and he for a plain and simple lack of cash. My brother had picked up the pieces for me; his had not."

    In which Watson turns to prostitution after his return from Afghanistan, like plenty of other British soldiers, but of course Holmes finds him anyway.

    "A bit of scarlet" is late 19th/early 20th century homosexual slang for sex with a soldier. OBVIOUSLY.

    Summary

    "Dear God, Holmes,” and here I had to lower my voice again, because we were surrounded by people, but not so much that I couldn’t be heard over the whine and rumble of the escalator, “you’re jealous.”

    Summary

    Mossad and the Egyptian Mukhabarat are skeptical of the KGB intelligence UNCLE passed on, so Illya must go undercover as a black marketeer in Cairo to admit to the imminent delivery of stolen Russian missiles. But Gaby won't hear of interrogation — she proposes, instead, that she should be the lucky agent to lure him into a honey pot confession.

    "This is your time," she says. "Now. Here. Nothing, no machine, no person, can tell you how you will use it."
     

    Living a human life is full of stops and starts, beginnings and endings. It is a lesson Diana comes to learn well. (post-movie fix-it.)
