    • Amy: Yes! It's not a ruse to make fun of me. It's a real game, and I'm winning it!

    • Penny: Hey, Princeton, look at that. Team community college-night school is in the lead!

    • Amy: To the Neil-mobile!

    • Raj: OK, go ahead and divide yourselves into teams of two.
      Leoanrd: Couples sounds great or we could mix things up maybe pick teams out of a hat. Whatever.
      Penny: Whoa. Whoa. Whoa. Why don't you just admit you don't want to be on a team with me?
      Leonard: I just said couples sound great.
      Penny: Hm-mm. Yea. You don't think I'm smart enough. You just think I'm going to be a liability. Even though I totally just used liability correctly in a sentence. (Amy nods at her)
      Leonard: No, let's do couples. I want to.
      Penny: Oh no, no. Let's mix things up. I choose Sheldon and we're going to kick your ass.
      Sheldon: Really? The only time I never get picked first for the team and I'm stuck with the liability.
      Amy: Stop that. Penny is not a liability.
      Penny: Thank you. Do you want me to be on my team?
      Amy: Maybe we pick names out of a hat?

    • Raj: I'm going to make you guys a scavenger hunt like they have at M.I.T.
      Howard: Oh, I love those. I did them every year there.
      Leonard: We did them at Princeton too.
      Howard: Oh, that's cute. Like it's a real college.
      Sheldon: Amusing. I was going to say that about M.I.T., but it works for Princeton, too.
      Amy: Scavenger hunts at Harvard we're really tough. I'd always get stuck on the first challenge; trying to find someone to be on a team with me. (Laughs) I guess that story's more sad than funny.

    • Raj: I didn't want anyone to feel bad at the end of the game and some of those puzzles were really hard and I didn't know who was going to get Penny.
      Penny: (Glares at Raj) Run.
      Raj: Okay, that came out wrong but you have to admit you all had a wonderful time.
      Penny: Run to India.
