Paul Clifford by Edward Bulwer-Lytton

It was a dark and stormy night; the rain fell in torrents, except at occasional intervals, when it was checked by a violent gust of wind which swept up the streets (for it is in London that our scene lies), rattling along the house-tops, and fiercely agitating the scanty flame of the lamps that struggled against the darkness. ~ Paul Clifford by Edward Bulwer-Lytton

Yes, this is that quote, the often quoted dark and stormy night quote.

This Sherlockian license plate frame is one of  the most popular item at the LitQuotes gift shop.  I know the quote is in The Adventure of Abbey Grange.  Does anyone know if it’s in other Sherlock Holmes stories?

Come, Watson, come! The game is afoot!

“Come, Watson, come!” he cried. The game is afoot.” ~ The Adventure of Abbey Grange by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
