In "A Scandal in Belgravia" Sherlock calls Lestrade to tell him that there's been a break-in at Baker Street. Sherlock tossed the American out the window, repeatedly. Lestrade would have had to explain it without implicating Sherlock in a crime.
i swear they were meant to throw up in the police cell, they didnt when i watched it on tv the other day. Not only was there drunk Sherlock and drunk John, there was "SILENCE IS NOT MY DIVISION" Lestrade.
Mystrade is not my division to ship, but now all I can think about for series 4 is Sherlock trying to get them together so Mycroft can have his very own Jawn.<<Lestrade is the goldfish Sherlock wants Mycroft to have. I don't even ship this!
