  • Quotes

    • Raj: (to Sheldon) Okay, please don't take this the wrong way, but I'd rather swim butt-naked across the Ganges with a paper cut on my nipple and die a slow agonizing death from a viral infection than work with you.

    • Raj: So that's it. That was my last hope. I'm going to be deported. Sent home in disgrace. Exposed to the sardonic barbs of my cousin Sanjay, or as you might know him, Dave from AT&T Customer Service.

    • Howard: So, what are we watching? Sex in the City, yikes!
      Penny: Hey, I happen to love this movie.
      Howard: Fine, let's watch it. Maybe all our periods will synchronize.

    • Leonard: I've always been a little confused about this: why don't Hindus eat beef?
      Raj: We believe cows are gods.
      Sheldon: Not technically. In Hinduism, cattle are thought to be like gods.
      Raj: Do not tell me about my own culture, Sheldon! In the mood I'm in, I'll take you out, I swear to cow!

    • Leonard: That was fun. Thank you.
      Penny: Leonard, honey, you don't have to say "thank you" every time we have sex.
      Leonard: Oh, okay. Tomorrow you're going to get a card in the mail, just throw it away.

    • Penny: Hey, wanna get a little crazy?
      Leonard: What are you thinking?
      Penny: Let's slide over to Sheldon's spot and make out.
      Leonard: You are a dirty girl!

    • Sheldon: You have to drive me home.
      Raj: How did you get here?
      Sheldon: I walked.
      Raj: So walk home.
      Sheldon: I can't, there's a big dog outside.

    • Raj: Ooh, dark matter. We better bring a flashlight.

    • Raj: No, no, no, no, that rate is much too low for what you'd expect from this collision. Do you understand we're taking about dark matter colliding in outer space?
      Sheldon: Yes, of course I understand, and who are you to tell me about outer space?
      Raj: Well, I am the astrophysicist! Astro means space!
      Sheldon: Astro means star.
      Raj: Okay, let me just tell you, if we were having this argument in my native language, I'd be kicking your butt!
      Sheldon: English is your native language!
