Sigerson feels that he must constantly prove himself to be smarter than the famous detective. So when Sherlock Holmes and his assistant Dr. Watson have to leave the country and Sherlock asks Sigerson to deal with one of his cases, he enthusiastically accepts the challenge.

Quotes

Are you Mister S., for Sigerson, Holmes?
- Orville
Perhaps.
- Sigerson Holmes
Do you have a brother whose first name is Sherlock?
- Orville
I do not.
- Sigerson Holmes
You do have a brother?
- Orville
The clue obviously lies in the word "cheddar." Let's see now. Seven letters. Rearranged, they come to, let me see: "Rachedd." "Dechdar." "Drechad." "Chaderd" - hello, chaderd! Unless I'm very much mistaken, chaderd is the Egyptian word meaning "to eat fat." Now we're getting somewhere!
- Sigerson Holmes
You call this tea?
- Sigerson Holmes
No, I call that hot water.
- Orville
