Lanyon states that he and Jekyll had differences of opinion rearding the subject of science, and that they haven't been social for quite some time.

"I wish the friends were younger," chuckled Dr. Lanyon.  "But I suppose we are.  And what of that?  I see little of him now."

"Indeed?" said Utterson.  "I thought you had a bond of common interest."

"We had," was the reply.  "But it is more than ten years since Henry Jekyll became too fanciful for me.  He began to go wrong, wrong in mind; and though of course I continue to take an interest in him for old sake's sake, as they say, I see and I have seen devilish little of the man.  Such unscientific balderdash," added the doctor, flushing suddenly purple, "would have estranged Damon and Pythias."
