So, Matt and I watched the 3rd episode of the 2nd series of the show Sherlock the other day. The episode starts with Watson saying his best friend was dead, and ends with him standing in front of Sherlock's gravestone in tears.
He said "I want you to do one thing for me. Don't be dead. Just stop it. Stop it right now."
I can't tell you how often I've said those exact words. "Just don't be dead."
