This phrase is never actually uttered by Holmes in any of the sixty Holmes stories written by Conan Doyle. In the stories, Holmes often remarks that his logical conclusions are "elementary", in that he considers them to be simple and obvious. He also, on occasion, refers to Dr. Watson as "my dear Watson". The two fragments, however, never appear together.
The phrase does first appear at the very end of the 1929 film, The Return of Sherlock Holmes, the first Sherlock Holmes sound film.


Walk with the person who's searching for truth........ run from the person who says they've found it !
