Quotes (9)

Bernadette: Still, I can't believe you can turn ordinary skin cells into functioning brain cells.
Amy: Well, I turned this one into a functioning boyfriend, so sky's the limit.

Raj: Maybe there are other things we have in common. Come dinner-time, do you enjoy eating food?

Raj: Well, I can't eat like a ten-year-old all the time.
Penny: You're dating somebody! Who is it?

Sheldon: And you realize what the next step is?
Amy: Set up a second culture and try to replicate our results.
Sheldon: Uh, no. We lock that door, lower our underpants a little, and make a baby.

Penny: How come you never eat broccoli?
Leonard: I'm married, I don't have to be attractive.

how come sheldon does not clarifies in this episode why is it that if humans eat non living food which after metabolized becomes the various types of cells including spermatozoids and eggs which after becoming united become boys and girls whom speak and think and are therefore ensouled beings whose sould would reincorporate the solar stream after the decomposition of their corpses after dying and become ensouled again thus completing the reincarnation cycle why is it that westerners do not "believe" in the reincarnation proccess as the hindus, like Koothrapalli, do! o.O :D *cats eat rats and mice and metabolize their rat's DNA into cat's DNA, thus bringing new cats into life after procreating instead of more rats or mice! That should should give some insight on how does the whole proccess works! :D

Voted Bad. Worst episode of the season so far. The Sheldon & Amy procreating storyline was bizarre and in my opinion inappropriate. I felt that the lady who played Raj's new love interest did really well.
