生活大爆炸第一季第四集_2: The Luminous Fish Effect
Well, that was fun.
Maybe tomorrow we can go to one of those big warehouse stores.
-Penny：Oh, I don't know, Sheldon.
It's going to take me a while to recover from all the fun I had today.
-Sheldon: Are you sure?
There are a lot of advantages to buying in bulk.
For example, I noticed that you purchase your tampons one-month supply at a time.
-Sheldon: Think about it.
It's a product that doesn't spoil and you're going to need them for at least the next 30 years.
-Penny：You want me to buy 30 years worth of tampons?
-Sheldon: Well, 30, 35.
When did your mother go into menopause?
-Penny：Okay. I'm not talking about this with you.
-Sheldon: Oh, Penny, this is a natural human process, and we're talking about statistically significant savings.
Now, if you assume 15 tampons per cycle and a 28-day cycle...
Are you fairly regular?
Okay, no warehouse store, but we're still on for putt-putt golf, right?
-Leonard：Hey, I just ran into penny.
She seemed upset about something.
-Sheldon: I think it's her time of the month.
I marked the calendar for future reference.
-Leonard：What's with the fish?
-Sheldon: It's an experiment.
-Leonard：What happened to your scrambled egg research?
-Sheldon: Oh, that was a dead end.
Scrambled eggs are as good as they're ever going to be.
-Sheldon: I read an article about Japanese scientists, who inserted DNA from luminous jellyfish into other animals,
and I thought, Hey, fish nightlights.
-Sheldon: it’s a billion dollar idea.
-Leonard：Mouth a word.
Sheldon, are you sure you don’t want to just apologize to Dr. Gablehauser and get your job back？
-Sheldon: No, no, no, I have too much to do.
-Leonard：Like luminous fish.
-Leonard：I’m sorry. I don’t know.
-Sheldon: That’s just the beginning.
I also have an idea for a bulk mailer of the female hygiene company.
the nightlight tampons.
Leonard, we are going to be rich.
-Leonard：Thanks for coming up such a short time.
-Sheldon’s mom: You do the right thing calling.
-Leonard：I don’t know what else to do,
He has lost all focus.
Everyday he has a new affection.
This is a particularly disturbing one.
-Sheldon’s mom: Hi, baby.
-Sheldon：You called my mother.
-Sheldon’s mom: You got yourself a loom, how nice.
-Sheldon’s mom: Honey, why did you get a loom?
-Sheldon：I was working with luminous fish and I thought “hey loom.“
Mom, what are you doing here?
-Sheldon’s mom: Leonard called me.
-Sheldon：I know, but why?
-Leonard: Because one of the great minds of the 21st century is raising glow-in-the-dark fish and weaving serapes.
-Sheldon：This is not a serape, this is a poncho.
A serape is open at the sides; a poncho is closed.
This is a poncho.
And neither is a reason to call someone's mother.
-Leonard: Really? When was the last time you left the house?
-Sheldon：I went to the market with Penny.
-Leonard: Yeah, that was three weeks ago.
-Sheldon：Well, then buckle up-- in the next four to eight days she's going to get very crabby.
-Sheldon’s mom: Sweetheart, your little friend is concerned about you.
-Sheldon：Yes, well, I'm not a child-- I'm a grown man, capable of living my life as I see fit.
And I certainly don't need someone telling on me to my mother!
-Leonard: Wait, where are you going?
-Sheldon：To my room-- and no one's allowed in!
-Sheldon’s mom: oh, he gets his temper from his daddy.
He's got my eyes.
-Leonard: I see.
-Sheldon’s mom: All that science stuff, that comes from Jesus.
-Leonard: Sheldon, your mom made dinner.
-Sheldon：I'm not hungry!
-Sheldon’s mom: Oh, Leonard, don't trouble yourself. He's stubborn.
He may stay in there till the rapture.
-Penny：We so sure that's a bad thing?
-Sheldon’s mom: I tell you, I love the boy to death, but he has been difficult since he fell out of me at the k-mart.
-Howard：Excuse me for being so bold, but I now see where Sheldon gets his smoldering good looks.
-Sheldon’s mom: Honey, that are not going to work, but you keep trying
I made chicken.
I hope that isn't one of the animals that you people think is magic.
You know, we have an Indian gentleman at our church,
a Dr. Patel-- it's a beautiful story.
The lord spoke to him and moved him to give us all 20% off on LASIK --
you know, those that needed it.
-Leonard: That is a lovely story.
Um, are we going to do anything about Sheldon?
-Sheldon’s mom: Oh, we will.
You have to take your time with Sheldon.
His father, god rest his soul, used to always say to me,
"Mary, you have to take your time with Sheldon."
-Leonard: Sounds like a wise man.
-Sheldon’s mom: Oh, not so wise.
He once tried to fight a bobcat for some licorice.
So, everybody grab a plate and a pretty place mat that Shelly wove.
-Penny：Has Shelly ever freaked out like this before?
-Sheldon’s mom: Oh, all the time.
I remember one summer when he was 13,
he built a small nuclear reactor in the shed
and told everybody he was going to provide free electricity for the whole town.
Well, the only problem was, he had no what you call "fissionable" materials.
Anyway, when he went on the internets to get some,
a man from the government came by and sat him down real gentle,
and told him it's against the law to have yellow-cake uranium in a shed.
-Penny：Well, what happened?
-Sheldon’s mom: Well, poor boy had a fit.
Locked himself in his room and built a sonic death ray.
-Leonard：A death ray?
-Sheldon’s mom: Well, that's what he called it.
Didn't even slow down the neighbor kids.
It pissed our dog off to no end.
