Trivia: A Study in Pink has many similarities to the original Sherlock Holmes story A study in Scarlet - which is set in the late nineteenth century. In both stories, Watson is introduced to Holmes by a mutual friend after returning from fighting in Afghanistan, a body is found in an empty house, the killer is a hansom/taxi driver who is dying of an embolism and his method of killing is to force the victim to choose between a poison tablet and harmless one.
John Watson: I just met a friend of yours.
Sherlock Holmes: A friend?
John Watson: An enemy.
Sherlock Holmes: Oh. Which one?
John Watson: Your arch-enemy, according to him. Do people have arch-enemies?
Sherlock Holmes: Did he offer you money to spy on me?
John Watson: Yes.
Sherlock Holmes: Did you take it?
John Watson: No...
Sherlock Holmes: Pity, we could have split the fee. Think it through next time.
Question: Which episode contains the line "I'm not insulting you, I'm describing you?" Google searches turn up nothing but the quote itself, and no further information on the episode or the rest of the scene. If anyone knows the line that led up to it, that would be even better.
