Episode Notes

  • The title refers to Sheldon and Amy teaming up on a project, and the fluctuations between them happily and unhappily working together.


Sheldon: Things have been going really well with the infinite resistance gyroscope.
Amy: That's great. How so?

Leonard: I know, but he was my friend first. It's like she's stealing him and they're just having the best time doing all their dumb girly stuff together.
Howard: You sure you don't fit in? You sound like a catty bitch to me.

Amy: Wait, are you saying if we combine my experiment with your calculations, we can determine the precise moment in time when the wave function collapses?
Sheldon: It could be the most inspired combination since I mixed red Icee into my blue Icee. It was like drinking 2/7ths of the rainbow.
Amy: Sheldon, this is really interesting.
Sheldon: Yeah and this one won't stain my teeth purple.

Sheldon: Well, what do you know? Here I was, waiting to be bored with biology, and instead you tickle my intellectual fancy. Which, unlike my body, is an okay place to tickle.

Amy: You know, I like harp lessons, but I'm thinking of switching to elevator repair lessons.
