“Dr. Watson, there are a lot of break ins lately.”/“Sure. Lock homes.”

Sherlock Holmes (a fictional detective) sounds like “sure, lock homes.” There was a Felix the Cat cartoon titled Sure-Locked Homes (1928). There was a “Sure-Lock-Homes” trademark filed in 1980.

Dr. Watson: It seems like there are a lot of break ins lately.
Inspector: Any ideas what we should do?
Watson: Sure..Lock..Homes.

   
     
Wikipedia: Sherlock Holmes
Sherlock Holmes (/ˈʃɜːrlɒk ˈhoʊmz/) is a fictional detective created by British author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Referring to himself as a “consulting detective” in the stories, Holmes is known for his proficiency with observation, deduction, forensic science, and logical reasoning that borders on the fantastic, which he employs when investigating cases for a wide variety of clients, including Scotland Yard.
