From Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's The Adventure of Silver Blaze, perhaps the most archetypal exchange in the entire Canon:

"Is there any other point to which you would wish to draw my attention?"

"To the curious incident of the dog in the night-time."

"The dog did nothing in the night-time."

"That was the curious incident," remarked Sherlock Holmes.
