The result of the move request was: Moved the main article, and after looking it over, moved the disambiguation page, too. (For the record, though, "I haven't bothered to check" is perhaps not the most compelling argument to support one's position.) (non-admin closure) Red Slash 01:58, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
– "Still waters run deep", the proverb, is the origin of the phrase, and is far and away the most scholarly article (and per WP:PRIMARYTOPIC, "A topic is primary for a term, with respect to long-term significance, if it has substantially greater enduring notability and educational value than any other topic associated with that term". And IMO is probably sought than the other four uses (1916 film, 1970 album, 1987 song, 2002 song) put together, although I haven't bothered to check. Move.

- Support - the capitalization misleading suggests a written work. If dab is needed still waters run deep (proverb) would be better, but since this is primary, support the move. In ictu oculi (talk) 05:20, 16 January 2014 (UTC)
- Support as the original writer of the article. I don't agree with the proposal above to reduce capitalisation. It seems to have been made without reading the article, where it is clear that written works are involved. Mzilikazi1939 (talk) 12:43, 16 January 2014 (UTC)
- It was based on the lede, which doesn't use capitalization. The lede begins "Still waters run deep is a proverb...", and the article is about the proverb rather than any particular work or works title "Still Waters Run Deep". To the extent that actual titled works are involved, "A Country-man and a River" and "Le torrent et la rivière" ("The Torrent and the River", I think) and as "De rustico amnem transituro" ("The Farmer Crosses the River", more or less) seem to the be the ones in play.

- Oppose the disambig page move. Nom says he hasn't bothered to check on the primarytopic criteria. Dicklyon (talk) 19:01, 18 January 2014 (UTC)
- Support. I think the nom has demonstrated that the primary topic criteria are satisfied. Agree also with the non-capitalisation. Can argue the DAB move both ways, but on balance I think move it too as proposed... disambiguation purely by punctuation or capitalisation is not adequate when one of the pages is itself a DAB, in my opinion.
