Way back in 2012 and 2013 there was some discussion on-list and
off-list of a quotation that has often been assigned to Conan Doyle's
Sherlock Holmes. Now there is an entry on this topic on the QI website
and the acknowledgement mentions some list members.

Elementary, My Dear Watson

[Begin acknowledgement]
Great thanks to Fred R. Shapiro, Victor Steinbok, Laurence Horn, Dan
Goncharoff, and W. Brewer whose discussion of this topic led QI to
formulate this question and perform this exploration.
[End acknowledgement]

Feedback welcome;
