Quotes (9)

Howard: I was counting on that money. I need to make as much as my wife so I don't have to try so hard in bed.

Bernadette: Are you kidding? I've always been treated differently! Look at me. Listen to me. I mean, the first thought when you see me isn't, "That's a scientist." It's, "I wonder if her mommy knows where she is."

Bernadette: I had a plan. I kept leaving Dove bar wrappers around to explain any weight gain.
Amy: Where did you get empty Dove bar wrappers?
Bernadette: From all the Dove bars I ate! I'm pregnant! Try to keep up!

Penny: You know, when Leonard's feeling anxious, I make him take a long walk.
Amy: Does that help?
Penny: For a while, then he comes back.

Bernadette: Apple slices? What kind of lunatic goes to McDonald's and gets fruit?

This was a good episode but not as good as the premiere. Sheldon's theatrics were the highlight of the episode and Bernadette's ravings were funny as hell. Questions: Does anyone know if there was a taping for episode 6 yesterday, Sept. 27 as scheduled and has anyone heard of an update on the contract negotiations for a renewal. I would think they have to make an announcement soon as they are almost one third into taping the episodes for the year.

Didn't get to see it. The 2 fake candidates were doing a stupid debate and all i got to say is the jokes over now bring out the real candidates

I voted Very Good. I was confounded at the writers because Penny missed the opportunity to say "Hey, I'm an actress" or "See, I learned how to act" in two places where she did so well telling a lie. Some reference to her being an actress just seemed like a natural thing to say. Penny and Sheldon's scene in the kitchen, near the end was nice.
