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.

Leonard Hofstadter: Well, what did she mean by that? Or was that just a generic platitude or was that a subtle bid for attention?

Sheldon Cooper: You know why this hamburger surpasses the Big Boy? This is a single-decker hamburger whereas the Big Boy is a double-decker. This has a much more satisfying meat to bun to condiment ratio.

Leonard Hofstadter: Are you even listening to me?

Sheldon Cooper: Of course I'm listening. "Blah blah, hopeless Penny delusion, blah blah."

Leonard Hofstadter: Okay then. You know, you can grow the ingredients for soup.

Penny: Really? Oh, yay!

Sheldon Cooper: Who do I speak to about permanently reserving this table?

Penny: Um, I don't know. A psychiatrist?

Penny: Hey, Sheldon. What's going on?

Sheldon: I need your opinion on a matter of semiotics.

Penny: I'm sorry?

Sheldon: Semiotics, the study of signs and symbols. It's a branch of philosophy related to linguistics.

Penny: Okay, sweetie, I know you think you're explaining yourself, but you're really not.

Sheldon Cooper: I like the hamburgers where we usually have hamburgers, you can't make the assumption that I'll like the hamburgers here.

Leonard Hofstadter: I'm sorry. Give him a hamburger.

Penny: Uh, which one, the Classic Burger, the Ranch House Burger, the Barbecue Burger or the Kobe burger?

Sheldon Cooper: Can't we just go to Big Boy? They only have one burger. The Big Boy.

Penny: The Barbecue Burger is like the Big Boy.

Sheldon Cooper: Excuse me, in a world that already includes a Big Boy, why would I settle for something like a Big Boy?

Penny: Because you are not at Big Boy!

Sheldon Cooper: Fine, I'll have the Barbecue Burger.

Raj Koothrappali: [at the Cheesecake Factory] Oh, no.

Howard Wolowitz: What?

Raj Koothrappali: She didn't take my order.

Howard Wolowitz: How can she take your order when you're too neurotic to talk to her?

Howard Wolowitz: Hey, look, it's Dr. Stud.

Leonard Hofstadter: Doctor what?

Howard Wolowitz: The blogosphere is a-buzzing with news of you and Leslie Winkle making

[gibberish noises to imply sexual intercourse]

Leonard Hofstadter: Wha... how did it get on the Internet?

Howard Wolowitz: I put it there.

Leonard Hofstadter: Well, how did you know about it?

Raj Koothrappali: A little bird told us. Apparently you were a magnificent beast.

Penny: I didn't know you played the cello.

Leonard: Yeah, my parents felt that naming me Leonard and putting me in advanced placement classes wasn't getting me beaten up enough.

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.

Sheldon: [learning Leonard has a girl over] This is very awkward.

Penny: Oh, come on. You know, Leonard's had girls over before, right?

Sheldon: Oh, yes. But there's usually planning, courtship, advance notice. You know, last time I was able to book a cruise to the Arctic to see a solar eclipse.

Penny: Wait, wait. You had to leave the state because your roommate was having sex?

Sheldon: I didn't *have* to, the dates just happened to coincide.

Sheldon Cooper: Alright. I'm moving my infantry division, augmented by a battalion of orcs from Lord of the Rings. We fight the Tennessee Volunteers, and the North once again wins the Battle of Gettysburg.

Howard Wolowitz: Not so fast. Remember the South still has two infantry divisions, plus Superman and Godzilla.

Leonard Hofstadter: No, no, no no. Orcs are magic; Superman is vulnerable to magic. Not to mention, you already lost Godzilla to the Illinois Cavalry and Hulk.

Raj Koothrappali: Why don't you just have Robert E. Lee charge the line with Shiva and Ganesh?

Penny: Hey, you guys ready to order?

Howard Wolowitz: Hang on, honey. Shiva and Ganesh? The Hindu gods against the entire Union army?

Leonard Hofstadter: And orcs!

Penny: I'll be back.

Raj Koothrappali: Excuse me, Ganesh is the remover of obstacles and Shiva's the destroyer. When the smoke clears Abraham Lincoln will be speaking Hindi and drinking mint juleps.

Penny: Alright, my boss says you have to either order or leave and never come back.
