"Do you believe it, Sherlock? Everybody knows Murdoch's total scum, but this? "

He's come in with a stack of papers, hoping the scandal might pique Sherlock's interest. While he enjoys his forays into Sherlock's world, he'd like it if they could have a conversation that doesn't involve murder. Something a normal couple might discuss over breakfast, not that they're a couple, mind you.

"The gutter press will always be with us. My only concern is whether they hinder my latest investigation."

"Which is?"

"Not nearly as exciting as your tabloid frenzy, I'm sure."

John drops the papers.

Sherlock wins again.
