When Professor Proton seeks advice from Leonard, Sheldon is hurt and contacts Bill Nye. Howard interrupts Raj’s girls night out.
Arthur Jefferies/ Professor Proton
Howard: ...And an astolyne torch to melt it down.
Penny: Oooo. That looks like fun.
Bernadette: Maybe you should master glue before you move onto fire.
Leonard: If you would have told me when I was a kid that someday I would have been doing science next to Professor Proton, I would not have believed you.
Professor Proton: If someone had told me that people would still be call me Professor Proton when I was 83 years old, I never would have quit smoking.
Leonard: Because it's just so happens I'm also spending the day with a beloved children television science personality. Isn't that right new friend and colleague, Bill Nye, the Science Guy? Sorry I replaced you with a newer model.
Bill Nye: Wow, Arthur Jeffries. It's an honor to meet you. My show never would have happened without yours.
Professor Proton: That's what I told my lawyers.
Amy: Have you ever thought about why Arthur didn't want you to read his paper?
Sheldon: Yes I have. My only conclusion is the prescription he was picking up the other day was for cookoo pills.
Amy: Maybe he found you a bit much.
Sheldon: That's kind of a stretch. But when it comes to social skills, I've mastered the big three. There's the coy smile. There's the friendly chuckle. Ha-ha-ha-haaaa. There's the vocalization of sympathy. Ahhh. Well, that one's tricky. I'm still working on it.
Amy: From what I saw the other day I can understand why he and…some people might find you…
Amy: It doesn't matter.
Sheldon: No. Go ahead. Say it. I know what it is. I've heard it my whole life. The word's annoying. Go ahead. Say it. Say it. Say, "I'm annoying."
Sheldon: Oh, it won't hurt my feelings. Go ahead, Amy. Say, "I'm annoying." "I'm annoying." "I'm annoying." "I'm annoying." Now where are you going? You know you want to say it. Say it. Say, "I'm annoying." Go ahead. Say it. Say it. Say it, Amy. Say it. (Amy leaves the apartment slamming the door.) Well, she can't stand it when I'm right.
Sheldon: Using the sweet candy of science to trick children into loving him.
Sheldon: Look at him. Just standing in line like he wasn't moderately famous thirty years ago. Let's go say hello.
Leonard: Maybe we shouldn't bother him.
Sheldon: I'm not going to bother him. I'm going to talk to him.
Leonard: He thinks there's a difference.
Professor Proton: So you have any single grandmothers?
Penny: Sorry, they're both married.
Professor Proton: Happily? (Penny gives him a "come see, come saw" hand expression.)
Professor Proton: Can I ask you a question?
Leonard: Yeah, sure.
Professor Proton: Why do you put up with Sheldon?
Leonard: Oh, um, you know. Because we're friends.
Professor Proton: Why?
Leonard: Wow. You ask really hard questions. Look, I know he can be aggravating, but you have to remember he's not doing it on purpose. It's just how he is. Oh, but he's also loyal, and trustworthy and we have fun together.
Professor Proton: You know, you're describing a dog.
Leonard: He did bite me once. But in his defense I came up behind him while he was eating.
Professor Proton: They hate that.
Leonard: You, know what. Sheldon is the smartest person I've ever met. He's a little broke and he needs me. I guess I need him too.
Professor Proton: Why's that?
Leonard: You will not let this go.
Amy: (about Raj and Howard) I knew it! They're gonna have sex before Sheldon and I do!
Professor Proton: Back off, bow tie!
Bill Nye: Wow, Arthur Jeffreys, It's an honour to meet you. My show never would have happened without yours.
Arthur: That's what I told my lawyers.
