Quote from Sherlock 4x03 │ Molly Hooper: You say it. Go on. You say it first. Say it. Say it like you mean it. Sherlock Holmes: I… I love you. I love you. Molly? Molly, please! Molly Hooper: I love you.
I love Molly. She’s so ordinary; and yet she’s not a shallow character. I love this moment because Sherlock has just been outdone by little Molly Hooper, and he just stands there, speechless. I think this is when he finally realizes that she IS his friend. And he looks guilty for not seeing her before, for not admitting to himself that she DOES count.
