"The Big Bang Theory: The Hamburger Postulate (#1.5)" (2007)
Leonard: Penny? What about her?
Leslie: Well, I thought I saw your pupils dilate when you looked at her, which, unless you're a heroin addict, points to sexual attraction.

Leslie: Just so we're clear, you understand that me hanging back to practice with you is a pretext for letting you know that I'm sexually available.

Sheldon Cooper: [furious that Leslie wrote on his board] I don't come in to your house and touch your board!
Leslie Winkle: There are no incorrect equations on my board.
Sheldon Cooper: Oh, that is so... so...
Leslie Winkle: I'm sorry, I gotta run. If you come up with an adjective, text me.
Sheldon Cooper: [after Leslie leaves and a brief pause] Inconsiderate. THAT is the adjective! Inconsiderate.

Leslie: [Penny and Sheldon are listening in to Leonard's room through the door]
[monotone]
Leslie: Oh Leonard, you magnificent beast.

Leonard: Why are you smashing a flash-frozen banana?
Leslie: 'Cause I got a bowl of Cheerios and I couldn't find a knife.

Leonard Hofstadter: Leslie and I do research together at the university.

[last lines]

Howard Wolowitz: That's great, Leslie, thanks.
Leslie Winkle: You scratch my back, I scratch your back. Meow!
Rajesh Koothrappali: What was all that about?
Howard Wolowitz: Oh, uh, no big deal, they gave Leslie control over some unrestricted grant money.
Leonard Hofstadter: Yeah, okay, but what's with the "back scratching" and the "meow."
Sheldon Cooper: I believe the "back scratching" metaphor generally describes a quid pro quo situation where one party provides goods or services to second party in compensation for a similar action.
Leonard Hofstadter: [sarcastically] Thank you.
Sheldon Cooper: The "meow." That sounded to me like an African civet cat.
Leonard Hofstadter: Are you done?
Sheldon Cooper: No. Despite what the name suggests, the civet cat, is not a true cat.
[pause]
Sheldon Cooper: Now I'm done.
Rajesh Koothrappali: You know what I'm thinking? I'm thinking, Howard wasn't making a back scratching metaphor. I'm thinking there was some actual scratching involved.
Leonard Hofstadter: What about it, Howard?
Howard Wolowitz: Okay, I didn't want to say anything, cause I know you and Leslie have a little... history.

Howard Wolowitz: Oh yeah, sorry about that.
Sheldon Cooper: My good man, dereliction of duty in the face of the enemy is a court martial offense.
Howard Wolowitz: Court martial, schmort martial. Leslie Winkle is the fifth girl I've ever had sex with!
[pause]
Howard Wolowitz: I mean for free.

Howard Wolowitz: I'm busy, ma!
Mrs. Wolowitz: Too busy to help your mother with her zipper?
Howard Wolowitz: Don't come in, ma!
Mrs. Wolowitz: Why not?
Leslie Winkle: He's got company!
Howard Wolowitz: Oh, there's the arrhythmia.
Mrs. Wolowitz: Is she Jewish?
Howard Wolowitz: [quietly] Are you Jewish?
Leslie Winkle: [quietly] No.
Howard Wolowitz: [shouting] Yes!


"The Big Bang Theory: The Codpiece Topology (#2.2)" (2008)
Leonard Hofstadter: I think tonight was a very good start.
Leslie Winkle: Me too. You're sure you're okay postponing intercourse until our relationship is past the initial viability test?

Leslie Winkle: I thought it was pretty a good one. I gave him an "LOL."

Leonard Hofstadter: [Referring to their upcoming date] How do you suggest we proceed?
Leslie Winkle: Your place. We'll order Chinese, you'll rent a movie - artsy but accessible - then light petting, no coitus.
Leonard Hofstadter: Sounds fun...
Leslie Winkle: I'll leave the details up to you. I think it's better if you assume the male role.

Sheldon: Leslie Winkle.
Leslie Winkle: Yeah. Leslie Winkle. The answer to the question, "Who made Sheldon Cooper cry like a little girl?"
Sheldon: Yes, well... I'm polymerized tree sap and you're an inorganic adhesive, so whatever verbal projectile you launch in my direction is reflected off of me, returns on its original trajectory and adheres to you.
Leslie Winkle: [sarcastically] Oh, ouch.

Leslie Winkle: Wait. You are going up against Sheldon Cooper?
Howard Wolowitz: Yes.

Leslie Winkle: Oh, ouch

Leslie Winkle: Happy birthday, dumbass!
