Trivia and Quotes

Quotes (18)

  • Jim: (About the Emmy Nomination) It's very exciting. It's very very weird. It feels like is happening to somebody else.

  • Jim: People always want to know if I'm as smart as Sheldon, which is just absurd. I mean, bless their hearts. It's sweet that they feel compelled to ask. But sadly, no.

  • Jim: (About being a geek sex symbol) I'm very surprised to hear this. I can't speak for anything I'm bringing to it. Sheldon needs taking care of in some ways, and I think that maybe it brings out a maternal instinct in somebody... I don't know. I'm shocked, and I'm also very flattered. That's very sweet.

  • Jim: One of my favorite things about Sheldon is that the writers have given him the opportunity to say so many things that other people would never get away with ... because they have the social common sense and the social niceties to keep their mouths shut.

  • Jim: (About the relationship between Sheldon and Penny) They are kind of the North and South Pole of communication skill. The other characters fall somewhere in between them.

  • Jim: (While comparing Sheldon with himself) His interests are so divergent from mine. I don't know comic books at all. I don't know superheroes at all, unless they're out in movies.

  • Jim: Everyone always asks me if I think Sheldon will ever fall in love, and I do, but I think that's probably a long way off still…and that sounds like a really rocky road to get down, anyway!

  • Jim: (About the cast chemistry in TBBT) It was a little bit instant. You know, I can take no credit at all for any good chemistry that comes between Johnny and me. While I'm sure it's grown and enhanced as we've worked more together, that was from the very first time we read together. But as far as the whole cast goes, it really has been just such a positive melding of personalities from the very beginning.
