  • Quotes

    • Penny: You may be right about me and Leonard.
      Sheldon: Of course I'm right. What are the odds I'd be wrong twice in one week?
      Penny: No, I mean we could always go back to being friends.
      Sheldon: I just said that. This conversation has started to circle, meeting adjourned.

    • Professor Crawley: What's your deal? Are they planning to outsource my job to Bangalore?
      Raj: I'm from New Delhi.

    • Raj: I don't like bugs, okay. They freak me out.
      Sheldon: Interesting. You're afraid of insects and women; ladybugs must render you catatonic.

    • Leonard: God, I had the most horrible night.
      Raj: What happened?
      Sheldon: Obviously another carnal fiasco with the 'shiksie' goddess.
      Howard: Shiksa. Shik-sa.
      Sheldon: Forgive me, Yiddish was not spoken in East Texas. If it was, it wasn't spoken for long.

    • Howard: What's the matter? You chicken?
      Sheldon: I've always found that an inappropriate slur. Chickens are not, by nature, at all timid. In fact, when I was young, my neighbor's chicken got loose and chased me up the big elm tree in front of our house.
      Raj: Chickens can't climb trees.
      Sheldon: Thank God.

    • Penny: What did you tell them?
      Leonard: Nothing bad. Just that last night was fine.
      Penny: "Fine?" You said it was "fine?"
      Leonard: It's a perfectly good word. You put it in front of wine or dining and you really got something.
