A Study in Pink - S1-E1

Trivia: A Study in Pink has many similarities to the original Sherlock Holmes story A study in Scarlet - which is set in the late nineteenth century. In both stories, Watson is introduced to Holmes by a mutual friend after returning from fighting in Afghanistan, a body is found in an empty house, the killer is a hansom/taxi driver who is dying of an embolism and his method of killing is to force the victim to choose between a poison tablet and harmless one.

Question: Which episode contains the line "I'm not insulting you, I'm describing you?" Google searches turn up nothing but the quote itself, and no further information on the episode or the rest of the scene. If anyone knows the line that led up to it, that would be even better.

Captain Defenestrator

Chosen answer: That line of dialogue has never actually been spoken in any of the Sherlock episodes, during seasons 1-4. However, that line is written in someone's fan-fiction story online, where it's said by Sherlock and directed at Anderson.
