When Bernadette joins the guys and Penny for their usual Chinese take-out dinner, Bernadette, the microbiologist, becomes fascinated with Leonard's physics project. Both Howard and Penny become a little jealous of this new friendship. Howard sees what Leonard is doing as the way he himself tries to pick up women, and as such wants Leonard to uninvite Bernadette to view his upcoming experiment. Penny, on the other hand, wants to bond more with Leonard by learning "a little physics" from Sheldon, who agrees if only because he can treat it as a scientific experiment. When Sheldon wants to go through 2,600 years of physics history, Penny may regret her choice of teacher.
Did You Know?
The technical consultant, David Saltzberg
, appears. He was the first person on the left that Howard (Simon Helberg
) passed when he entered the dining room introducing Bernadette (Melissa Rauch
) as his girlfriend to everyone. (Look for the guy in the brown sweater vest at the first table). See more
Sheldon said the phrase "the more, the merrier" is a false equivalency because more doesn't equal merry. However in The Big Bang Theory: The Codpiece Topology
he used that phrase himself when Leonard mentioned Leslie Winkle is coming over. See more
Hey, Leonard. Check this out.
[Throws a dumpling up in the air and catches it with her mouth
Leonard, she's doing it again.
I think it upsets Sheldon when you play with the food.
No, it upsets Sheldon when she willy-nilly takes it from the containers without regard for its equitable distribution.
[Turns to Raj
This is essentially why you have famine in India.
[Raj shakes his head no at Penny
[Mouth open so the dumpling is visible
You want me to put it back?
CHUCK LORRE PRODUCTIONS, #270 Jillian had a urinary tract infection... again. That sentence appeared in my head a few days ago, just as you see it above. I have no idea what it means, other than the obvious, and I don't know anyone named Jillian. Regardless, I thought it'd be interesting to begin a vanity card with it and just see where it goes. Jillian had a urinary tract infection... again. Her doctor liked to abbreviate the condition to UTI. She liked to abbreviate it to TMH - Too Much Humping. Regardless, the road back to vaginal happiness was always the same: cranberry juice and abstinence. Thankfully, her boyfriend, Dudley, was always very understanding. He'd just smile, hold her in his arms and say, "Well, babe, when one door closes, another one opens up." She'd always giggle and blush when he'd say that, but deep down she wished she had the courage to cover his mouth and nose with a chloroform-soaked rag, and then, while he was unconscious, snip off his testicles with the little scissors she uses to groom her schnauzer. All of which explains why the next sentence popped into my head recently. Nobody sang Bee Gees songs on karaoke night like Dudley. See more
