    • Sheldon: (referring to an over sized desk) Why do you even want this here? Its size is completely disproportionate to its purpose!
      Raj: Seeing as its purpose was to piss you off, I'd say it's spot on!

    • Sheldon: This isn't a desk; it's a Brobdingnagian monstrosity. Raj: Is that the American idiom for 'giant-big ass desk'? Sheldon: Actually, it's British!

    • Penny: Well, I would ask you guys if you want dessert, but I know Sheldon doesn't eat dessert on Tuesdays, and even if Raj wanted something he couldn't tell me. Howard won't order anything, but he will come up with some sort of skeevy comment involving the words pie or cheesecake, and Leonard is lactose intolerant so he can't eat anything here without his intestines blowing up like a balloon animal.

    • Leonard: That's great news about you and Bernadette! Howard: Yeah, I think I'm going to take her to miniature golf. Leonard: Oh, well, I guess for you guys that's like regular golf. Howard: Short jokes, really? You're like a quarter of an inch taller than me! Leonard: Yeah, and don't you forget it!

    • Raj: Oh, you are so arrogant! If you were a super hero your name would be Captain Arrogant, and you know what your superpower would be? Arrogance! Sheldon: You're wrong again! If my superpower was arrogance my name would be Doctor Aragonto.

    • Sheldon refers to Raj's desk as Brobdingnagian. Brobdingnag is a fictional land inhabited by giants in the novel Gulliver's Travels by Jonathan Swift. Since the book entered into modern culture the adjective Brobdingnagian has been used to describe anything of immense size.
