-Sheldon: I really think we should examine the chain of causality here.
-Leonard: Must we?
-Sheldon: Event A: a beautiful woman stands naked in our shower.
Event B: we drive halfway across town to retrieve a television set from the aforementioned woman's ex-boyfriend.
Query: on what plane of existence is there even a semi-rational link between these events?
-Leonard: She asked me to do her a favor, Sheldon.
-Sheldon: Ah, yes. Well, that may be the proximal cause of our journey,
but we both know it only exists in contradistinction to the higher level distal cause.
-Leonard: Which is?
-Sheldon: You think with your penis.
-Leonard: That's a biological impossibility. And you didn't have to come.
-Sheldon: Oh, right, yes, I could have stayed behind and watch Wolowitz try to hit on Penny in Russian, Arabic and Farsi.
Why can't she get her own TV?
-Leonard: Come on, you know how it is with break-ups.
-Sheldon: No, I don't... and neither do you.
-Leonard: I... I broke up with Joyce Kim.
-Sheldon: You did not break up with Joyce Kim. She defected to North Korea.
-Leonard: To mend her broken heart.
This situation is much less complicated.
There's some kind of dispute between Penny and her ex-boyfriend as to who gets custody of the TV.
She just wanted to avoid having a scene with him.
-Sheldon: So we get to have a scene with him?
-Leonard: No, Sheldon, there's not going to be a scene.
There's two of us and one of him.
-Sheldon: Leonard, the two of us can't even carry a TV.
-Penny: So, you guys work with Leonard and Sheldon at the university?
Um, I'm sorry. Do you speak english?
-Howard: Oh, he speaks English. He just can't speak to women.
-Penny: Really? Why?
-Howard: He's kind of a nerd. Juice box?
-Leonard: I'll do the talking.
-Leonard: Uh, hi, I'm Leonard, this is Sheldon.
-Leonard: Let's... Uh, we're here to pick up Penny's TV.
-Man: Get lost.
-Sheldon: Okay, thanks for you time.
-Leonard: We're not going to give up just like that.
-Sheldon: Leonard, the TV's in the building.
We have been denied access to the building, ergo, we are done.
-Leonard: Excuse me.
If I were to give up on the first little hitch I never would have been able to identify
the fingerprints of string theory in the aftermath of the big bang.
-Sheldon: My apologies. What's your plan?
It's just a privilege to watch your mind at work.
-Leonard: Come on, we have a combined IQ of 360.
We should be able to figure out how to get into a stupid building.
-Sheldon: What do you think their combined IQ is?
-Leonard: Just grab the door! This is it. I'll do the talking.
-Sheldon: Good thinking. I'll just be the muscle.
-Leonard: I'm Leonard, this is Sheldon.
-Sheldon: From the Intercom.
-Man: How the hell did you get in the building?
-Leonard: Uh... we're scientists.
-Sheldon: Tell him about our IQ. Leonard...
-Sheldon: My mom bought me those pants.
-Leonard: I'm sorry.
-Sheldon: You're going to have to call her.
-Leonard: Sheldon, I am so sorry I dragged you through this.
-Sheldon: It's okay. It wasn't my first pantsing and it won't be my last.
-Leonard: And you were right about my motives.
I was hoping to establish a relationship with Penny that might have someday led to sex.
-Sheldon: Well, you got me out of my pants.
-Leonard: Anyway, I've learned my lesson.
She's out of my league. I'm done with her.
Got my work, one day I'll win the Nobel Prize and then I'll die alone.
-Sheldon: Don't think like that. You're not going to die alone.
-Leonard: Thank you, Sheldon. You're a good friend.
-Sheldon: And you're certainly not going to win a Nobel Prize.
-Howard: This is one of my favorite places to kick back after a quest.
They have a great house ale.
-Penny: Wow, a cool tiger.
-Howard: Yeah, I've had him since Level 10.
His name is Buttons.
Anyway, if you had your own game character we could hang out, maybe go on a quest.
-Penny: Um... sounds interesting.
-Howard: So you'll think about it?
-Penny: Oh, I don't think I'll be able to stop thinking about it.
-Leonard: We're home.
-Penny: Oh, my god, what happened?
-Leonard: Well, your ex-boyfriend sends his regards and I think the rest is fairly self-explanatory.
-Penny: I'm so sorry.
I really thought if you guys went instead of me he wouldn't be such an ass.
-Leonard: No, it was a valid hypothesis.
-Sheldon: That was a valid hypoth... What is happening to you?
-Penny: Really... thank you so much for going and trying.
Oh, you're so terrific. Really.
Why don't you get some clothes on? I'll get my purse, and dinner is on me, okay?
-Leonard: Really? Great.
-Sheldon: Thank you
-Sheldon: You're not done with her, are you?
-Leonard: Our babies will be smart and beautiful.
-Sheldon: Not to mention imaginary.
-Leonard: Is Thai food okay with you, Penny?
-Sheldon: We can't have Thai food we had Indian for lunch.
-Sheldon: They're both curry-based cuisines.
-Sheldon: It would be gastronomically redundant
I can see we're going to have to spell out everything for this girl.
-Penny: Any ideas, Raj?
-Howard: Uh, turn left on lake street and head up to Colorado.
I know a wonderful little sushi bar that has karaoke.
-Penny: That sounds like fun.
-Howard: Baby, baby, don't get hooked on me...
oh, baby, baby, don't get hooked on me…
-Sheldon: I don't know what your odds are in the world as a whole,
but as far as the population of this car goes, you're a veritable mack daddy.
