Você sabia? "Elementar, meu caro Watson" é a frase que jamais foi proferida pelo famoso detetive Sherlock Holmes, na obra de Arthur Conan Doyle, um dos poucos autores que fez seu personagem muito mais conhecido do que o criador. A frase é resultado das adaptações dos roteiristas dos programas de rádio, de televisão e de cinema do famoso detetive. Também o boné e a capa xadrex foram iventados depois, não estão no texto original.


Drawing large conclusions from smallest observations = tirar grandes conclusões a partir de um pequeno detalhe.

Skillful = habilidoso, engenhoso.

Undoubtedly = sem dúvida
