I think she is one of the most charming young ladies I ever met, and might have been useful in such work as we have been doing. She had a decided genius that way.
Sherlock Holmes on Mary Morstan (The Sign of Four)
Yeah I always loved that bit. What if they make her a private detective or someone of sorts?
Sherlock likes Mary. This is, and always has been canon.
He smiles at her and she didn’t notice. The feels.
he looks so sad!
This moment. Just before, Sherlock had willing manipulated Molly into getting access to one of her patients - something she probably knew. As we find out later, Molly sees herself on the very fringes of this great man’s life, a useful assistant and nothing more. As she says, ‘I don’t count.’
But we see Sherlock, closed off, cold and calculating, smiling sweetly in an almost unconscious manner. But Molly doesn’t notice, as she’d never expect that from him. And just like that, the smile drops away. Sherlock’s more than used to being ignored himself.
Two people, so used to being pushed aside, neglected, used for their talents and forgotten about the rest of the time. Perhaps at this moment Sherlock himself is unaware of why he likes mousey, smiley Molly. It’s probably only in The Reichenbach Fall that he recognises a little himself in her. The small, lonely part that just wants that little bit of human contact. And that’s when he realises that he treats her the same way the world treats him - indifferently. Even though he didn’t show it, she always counted.

Since when has that stopped us?
The difference between America and Britain ...
- British Sherlock: Avoids the subject of sex, only address it in a round about fashion, turns out main character is a virgin.
- American Sherlock: HARDCORE, HALF NAKED, SWEATY, TATTOOED ONE NIGHT STAND, KINKY, BDSM, HANDCUFFS IN THE VERY FIRST SCENE WE SEE SHERLOCK!!!

A round up of all the good for nothing characters we love.
