He frowned and turned the dial up on the volume and then
smirked as the first words of the trio reached his sharp ears.
Lestrade: Zed! Open up! *pounds some more*
Holmes: If you persist in your current course of action, Lestrade,
you will only end up injuring yourself further. Which will complicate
things when the time comes to escape this...prison.
Watson: You have a plan?
Holmes: I hope to have one soon, but I dare not voice it out loud
for fear of being overheard.
*Lestrade pauses at the door to glance over her shoulder at
Lestrade: You know who brought us here?
Holmes: I have a suspicion.
Lestrade: Who? So that I may strangle him the next time we meet.
Moriarty: *over speakers* A chance you shall never get, dear
Holmes: I thought it was you.
Moriarty: And how the deuce did you come to that conclusion,
Moriarty: Ah yes...the French scientist....
Lestrade: Moriarty! Wait until I get out of here! There shall be
no place in the Solar System which you shall be safe from me!
Moriarty: *chuckling* Now now, Inspector, the chances of you
escaping my latest trap are very slim. Even for the good detective
Holmes: Well, Professor, you have us. What do you plan to do with
Moriarty: Why...entertain you of course.
Moriarty: *chuckling* Oh, don't give me that look like I have
Lestrade: A little late for that...
Moriarty: Witty as ever, Inspector. *pause* No, what I have in
mind for you three are several movies that I have collected over the
months since my resurrection. I figured that since I was brought
back to life that Holmes would shortly be following right after. I
had planned on capturing him and any associates of his and
humiliating him with these movies.
Holmes: Should I be afraid?
Lestrade: What movies could you possibly have that could
Moriarty: *to Holmes* Maybe, maybe not. *to Lestrade* Why, movies
all about him and his adventures with the good old doctor.
Lestrade: Oh! -Those- movies!
Watson: And why would Holmes be embarrassed by these movies you
Moriarty: You shall see.... *chuckles again*
Holmes: I have movies? *somewhat curious and surprised look*
Moriarty: You shall see. Now the first movie will be Sherlock
Holmes and the Secret Weapon, starring Basil Rathbone.
Holmes: *blink* What kind of title is that? Watson came up with
far more interesting titles with his stories.
Watson: *looks proud*
Holmes: Not you, Watson. The other Watson.
Watson: Oh. Right.
Moriarty: Cheer up, Holmes. You might just enjoy these. Though I
pray that you do not.
*Professor Moriarty reaches a hand out and flips several
switches. Back inside the room, Holmes and gang look about the room
again. This time they take notice of the chairs and some living
Holmes: Looks like we shall be here for a while.
*Suddenly along one wall of the room, coverings pull back to
reveal a large theatrical big screen with the usual countdown usually
seen on pre-1990's movies.
Holmes & Lestrade: *groaning*
Lestrade: Hey, don't we get any popcorn and sodas?
*Her question goes unanswered as the beginning scenes and credits
play across the big screen.*
