- The title refers to Raj's father cutting off his allowance.
Sheldon uses his knock on Apartment 4B's bedroom door when he goes to talk to Amy during their argument about his sharing intimate details of their relationship with other people.
Amy: What is this?
Sheldon: I'm mapping basic topics of conversation and with whom they can be discussed.
I call these circles "Zones of Privacy". Don't Google that unless you want to see pictures of people's genitals.
Bert: I met her on G-Harmony. That's a Web site for geologists to find love.
Amy: That's a real thing?
Bert: Yeah. Their slogan is "We're all about dating and not the carbon-14 kind".
Dr. Koothrappali: You're an adult who can't get by without an allowance from his parents.
Women don't want that.
Raj: What are you saying, that you're giving up on me? What kind of father gives up on his son?
Dr. Koothrappali: I have six children, five of whom are married and self-sufficient. I don't think I'm the problem.
Bert: Well, I really envy your relationship. Other than you two only having sex once a year, you're the perfect couple.
Amy: Actually, we met online. Our first date was at a coffee shop.
Sheldon: Although, unlike your date, she actually showed up.
Oh, he looks sad again.
