In "Red Sky At Night," Jane told Lisbon that his memory is a mighty fortress, from which no fact ever escapes; but when she tells him boring things, he sets them free immediately. It saves overcrowding.

This is very similar to Sherlock Holmes' explanation to Doctor Watson:

"I consider that a man's brain originally is like a little empty attic, and you have to stock it with such furniture as you choose. A fool takes in all the lumber of every sort that he comes across, so that the knowledge which might be useful to him gets crowded out, or at best is jumbled up with a lot of other things, so that he has a difficulty in laying his hands upon it. Now the skillful workman is very careful, indeed, as to what he takes into his brain-attic. He will have nothing but the tools which may help him in doing his work, but of these he has a large assortment, and all in the most perfect order. It is a mistake to think that that little room has elastic walls and can distend to any extent. Depend upon it, there comes a time when for every addition of knowledge you forget something that you knew before. It is of the highest importance, therefore, not to have useless facts elbowing out the useful ones."
--"A Study In Scarlet," by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, 1887
