Here's what you need:

• Lagers (that's lighter-colored beer, for you Americans) for the drinkers.

• Tea for the non-drinkers.

• Tissues (for all the feelings).


1. Whenever Sherlock starts making deductions: Everyone does a waterfall until the super tense deduction music CLIMAXES!

2. If ever John has to explain to someone that he is not gay, you may either: FLAIL FOR FIVE SECONDS or TAKE FIVE DRINKS.

3. Whenever a woman tries unsuccessfully to flirt with Sherlock, take one big chug of liquid courage.
