This scene is one of the biggest reasons I ship them. 
#Sherlocks all like, ‘I can’t believe you made fun of me on your blog, I’m going to make angry noises at you and then flop back on the couch dramatically so you can see how angry I am. And then the second Watson goes to leave, he’s upset. ‘Where are you going?’ Because he’s thinking, we just had a fake fight, you’re supposed to comfort me, not leave, John? John? And then he goes to the window and watches his boyfriend leave and you can see in his face how upset he is because he never wants John to leave him and now he doesn’t know what to do.

“WHERE ARE YOU GOING YOU OUGHT TO TELL ME YOU’RE SORRY AND I’M BRILLIANT AND MORE IMPORTANT THAN SPACE STUFF.” I love the way he suddenly turns around.. it’s so clear he just wanted to get a reaction out of John.
Maybe it’s just me, but..
All through this episode it seems like they reached the point where the traits that attracted them to each other in the first place started to be difficult to put up with anymore. Sherlock may be brilliant, dark, eccentric, strange and whatnot, but it must be frustrating and taxing after a time, and John seems to have a phd in conflict avoidance, so he just ran away from the problem. (Headcanon: It’s because he’s a soldier, so he’s learnt to keep his mouth shut and take the humiliation from people of higher rank, ‘higher rank’ meaning a higher IQ here. It’s even mentioned in canon that he felt intimidated by him and wasn’t sure if he could speak to him about his cocain addiction because omg hes so clever and brilliant and im not.)
And I love how ambiguous the “Look at that, Mrs. Hudson..” part is, because “quiet, calm, peaceful” is exactly how one would describe John. It’s everything Sherlock isn’t, so of course he finds John’s company comforting and relaxing, but he also seems annoyed at (or bored with?) his calmness. John is polite, kind and just an amazing human being in general, but aw you can’t even have a decent fight with him. Once I read someone point out how Sherlock waited for John to go up the stairs until firing the last bullets. I think he was testing how far he can go, out of sheer boredom. Or maybe he wanted to know how much John is willing to take, hence the pass me my phone thing. 
Anyway, the way they are sitting in the back of the cab, looking out the window awkwardly, avoiding each other’s eyes like a grumpy old married couple may support this idea too.
I’m going to shut up now. (I think that’s for the best.)

Re: John’s “phd in conflict avoidance”
I can’t help but flash forward to the scene in the same sitting room when they had their more meaningful fight regarding “heroes that don’t exist.”  The most profound and evocative scene for me was the moment when Sherlock realized that John was angry at him (“ah, you’re angry at me so you wouldn’t help, not much cop this caring lark”).  Because John was just standing there, with his head down, his hands gripping their armchair tightly, and it was both painful and amazing to watch just how much John had to reign in his warring emotions.
Because it must be inexplicably painful for a war veteran to be told that heroes don’t exist.
And yet… what’s so meaningful in that scene was that John chose not to fight Sherlock’s reasoning anymore.  If there was anyone in the world at that moment who could disprove Sherlock’s assertion, it was John.  He was a hero.  At least, he wanted to believe he was.  And it’s painful to see John suddenly crumple, as if he believed Sherlock, as if he realized that even with his own heroics in Afghanistan… maybe he wasn’t a hero after all.
And it also speaks of how unspeakably kind and remarkably tough John’s heart was, to reign in all of those warring thoughts and emotions inside him just so he can prove himself useful again to Sherlock.  He just straightened and slowly sat down at their sofa to go through the newspapers, like Sherlock instructed him to, and put aside his own conflicts in order to ensure that this game with Moriarty will be over soon, and ensure that no more lives will have to be sacrificed as a pawn.
Even in the littlest things… John thinks of other people first and thinks of himself last.  He’s… a hero.  And he doesn’t even acknowledge it.
And I think… that’s what Sherlock will eventually realize.  And I think it’s something Sherlock already unconsciously knew.  He did say that if heroes do exist, he wouldn’t be one of them.
He never said John could never be one.

“And I think… that’s what Sherlock will eventually realize.  And I think it’s something Sherlock already unconsciously knew.”Oooh this is a good point and it reminds me of their “-Use your imagination! -I don’t have to.” exchange! Also, I think he will realize this after the pool scene. After all, John offered to die for him by attacking Moriarty. Him. Sherlock. Sherlock, who got him into trouble in the first place.
Btw, did you notice that John’s slow, melancholy theme piece was playing during that “I’ve dissapointed you.” scene? Sherlock was being clever and fast as usual, finding out stuff on his phone and even the camera showed him for quite long, but it was John’s theme playing in the background because his feeling were the important thing there. Or at least that’s how I interpret it.

So much lovely analysis and I am just here being all

Not having a John Watson to hug everyday is eating away at me.

Steve Rogers did, in fact, realize that something was off when he saw the outline of the woman’s odd bra (a push-up bra, he would later learn), but being an officer and a gentleman, he said that it was the game that gave the future away.

No, see, this scene is just amazing. The costume department deserves so many kudos for this, it’s unreal, especially given the fact that they pulled off Peggy pretty much flawlessly.
1) Her hair is completely wrong for the 40’s. No professional/working woman  would have her hair loose like that. Since they’re trying to pass this off as a military hospital, Steve would know that she would at least have her hair carefully pulled back, if maybe not in the elaborate coiffures that would have been popular.
2) Her tie? Too wide, too long. That’s a man’s tie, not a woman’s. They did, however, get the knot correct as far as I can see - that looks like a Windsor.
3) That. Bra. There is so much clashing between that bra and what Steve would expect (remember, he worked with a bunch of women for a long time) that it has to be intentional. She’s wearing a foam cup, which would have been unheard of back then. It’s also an exceptionally old or ill-fitting bra - why else can you see the tops of the cups? No woman would have been caught dead with misbehaving lingerie like that back then, and the soft satin cups of 40’s lingerie made it nearly impossible anyway. Her breasts are also sitting at a much lower angle than would be acceptable in the 40’s.
Look at his eyes. He knows by the time he gets to her hair that something is very, very wrong.

so what you are saying is S.H.E.I.L.D. has a super shitty costume division….

So I’ve heard somebody wanted to see a gif of that moment when Brian Cox was ran over by Stephen Hawking. Here it is, I hope it loads.

This gif changed my life

I think you’re forgetting the best part. This is from Monty Python Live and Brian is pointing out all the wrong science in The Galaxy Song. Stephen appears, runs him over then trundles off, singing the song.
