    • Amy: And this is Dr. Gunderson from Stockholm.
      Sheldon: Aw, Sweden. Home of my favorite Muppet and second favorite meatball. OK. The Nordic reputation for a lack of humor is well founded. Wait. Is his name Gunderson or No-Funderson?
      Amy: Where are we going with this, Dr. Cooper?
      Sheldon: Oh, please. I'm your boyfriend. Call me Sheldon. That's right. I'm in a boy-girl relationship with this cute little lump of wool.
      Amy: Sheldon.
      Sheldon: It is a physical relationship too. Hand holding; hugging; even on hot days. Ow! Here's an new one. Apparently now we kick each other in the shin under the table. How do you like it when I do it to you? Not so much, huh?

    • Sheldon: That was before Howard explained to me how awful it would be if he had to work with his significant other.
      Bernadette: He said what?
      Sheldon: Oh don't be insulted. He just thinks too much of you would be mind-numbingly tedious.

    • Penny: Awkward silence. Sheldon on his phone. No touching. Somebody's having date night.

    • Sheldon: (Knock..knock..knock) Amy.
      (Knock..knock..knock) Amy.
      (Knock..knock..knock) Amy.
      Amy: Sheldon, what are you doing here so late?
      Sheldon: I couldn't sleep because I kept thinking about what happened earlier between us. Also I had one heck of a bus nap. Oh speaking of which. Do you want some mutton and coconut milk?
      Amy: No.
      Sheldon: Boy, I cannot give this stuff away.
      Amy: What do you want?
      Sheldon: Amy, this isn't easy to say. All relationships are difficult, but even more so when you're in one with a person who struggles with everyday social interactions and frankly who can strike some people as being kind of a weirdo.
      Amy: Sheldon, you're not a weirdo.
      Sheldon: I wasn't speaking about me. I mean honestly, there's no telling what will set you off. You know, introducing myself as your boyfriend. Giving you the opportunity to drive me home. Breaking the ice with your colleagues using ethnic humor, you're funniest kind of humor.
      Amy: What's your point?
      Sheldon: My point is we're a couple and I like you for who you are quirks and all.
      Amy: I like you too.
      Sheldon: I should hope so. I don't see anyone else banging on this door to put up with your nonsense. (Amy slams the door in his face.) Not even a goodbye. You see, that's the kind of thing that makes people think you're weird. Poor kid, she just doesn't see it.

    • Amy(about Sheldon) I'm hoping to put his love of repetition to good use someday.
