Episode Notes

  • The title refers to Howard's impulsive purchases after he feels his and Bernadette's baby kick for the first time.


Sheldon: Is it a party? And if so, what kind of party? Is it a cocktail party? A Tupperware party? Ooh, yeah, is it a surprise party? Oh, I hope it's not a West Coast party, 'cause according to the man on the radio, a West Coast party don't stop.

Leonard: You'll have nerds fawning all over you. If you don't love that, this marriage is in trouble.

Howard: Look at you. Willy Wonka would roll you to the juicing room.

Sheldon: Do you know what else I love about you?
Stuart: Hmm?
Sheldon: Your handwriting is impeccable!
Stuart: Thank you for noticing!
Sheldon: No, I mean it. I mean it. It's like you have the soul of a label maker.

Raj: I've been babysitting him way longer than you have.
