Quotes

Penny Hofstadter: You know, maybe you're all more like the guy who didn't invent the electric car and less like the guy who didn't invent the light bulb.
Sheldon Cooper: She's right. Maybe we're all a bunch of Teslas after all.
Amy Farrah Fowler: Didn't Tesla die penniless, forgotten and insane?
Howard Wolowitz: [to Sheldon] You may have a point about her social skills.
Sheldon Cooper: He wasn't insane.
Leonard Hofstadter: He did fall in love with a pigeon.
Sheldon Cooper: Well, if we're gonna call Tesla crazy for loving something small and unappealing, might as well put Penny in a padded cell right now.
