  • Quotes

    • Amy: I don't understand. What difference does it make if Leonard goes to Wil Wheaton's party?
      Penny: Wil Wheaton is Sheldon's mortal enemy.
      Amy: "Mortal enemy?" Sheldon, I know you're a bit of a left-handed monkey wrench, but you really have a mortal enemy?
      Sheldon: In fact, I have 61 of them. Would you like to see the list?

    • Stuart: Okay, if you're going to question the importance of an actor's signature on a plastic helmet from a movie based on a comic book, then all of our lives have no meaning!

    • Sheldon: You've already signed something for me, Brent Spiner—your name on my list. From this moment on, you are my mortal enemy!
      Wil Wheaton: Don't worry, it doesn't take up a whole lot of your time.

    • Brent Spiner: (on a Star Trek: TNG action figure) I haven't seen one of these things in years. Remember how we used to make these things look like they were masturbating?
