Quote from Bernadette

Bernadette: Boy, I don't know if I could be friends with Howie if we broke up.
Howard: Why not?
Bernadette: I'm a very vengeful person.
Howard: Really?
Bernadette: With access to weaponized smallpox.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Does anybody have any wood? Oh, come on! I just want wood. Why are you making it so hard?

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: I know he (Spock) wouldn't care for an outburst of human emotion, but oh goodie, oh goodie, oh goodie!

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: And now that I have some wood, I'm going to begin the erection of my settlement.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Oh no, they sent the wrong Spock. Live long and suck it, Zachary Quinto!

Quote from Leonard

Leonard: No, just you and me.
Penny: Have you thought this through?
Leonard: Yes, and I think we should go anyway.

Quote from Leonard

Leonard: Some kind of nerd? I'm the king of nerds.
Penny: What does that mean?
Leonard: It means that if someone makes me mad, I won't help them set up their printer.

Quote from Sheldon

Leonard: You feel like trying something new for dinner? Maybe Indian, Tex-Mex?
Sheldon: You ever wonder how humans would be different if they evolved from lizards instead of mammals?
Leonard: Okay, let's talk about that.
Sheldon: As you know, lizards, cold-blooded animals, lack the ability to sense temperature. But they do move more sluggishly when it's cold. So, lizard weathermen would say things like, bring a sweater, it's slow outside. I love my mind.
Leonard: We all do. Now, how about dinner?
Sheldon: Oh, I would assume we'd enjoy insects or smaller lizards. We could also pull each other's tails off and grill them, they'll just grow back.

Quote from Leonard

Leonard: What are you afraid of?
Penny: Well, what if we do go out and I do something stupid and dump you again.
Leonard: What if I dump you?
Penny: [Scoffs] Come on, be serious.

Quote from Leonard

Leonard: How does a miserable date end in sex?
Penny: I don't know, it's complicated.
Leonard: Well, I'm a pretty smart guy and right now my brain has dibs on the blood supply so give it a go.

Quote from Raj

Raj: Did you forget what Penny did to you? It took two years and defiling my sister to turn that frown upside down.
Leonard: I didn't defile your sister, we had a relationship.
Raj: I heard you called her Brown Sugar. In my book, that's defilement.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Now, back to our game.
Raj: You were in the middle of an erection.
Sheldon: Oh, of course. It's right here in my hand.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Why would I feel safer with Zachary Quinto at the foot of my bed?
Leonard: I don't know, he was pretty bad ass on Heroes.
Sheldon: Nope. Sorry Quinto, you're going back!

Quote from Penny

Penny: You mean, like a date?
Leonard: Not like a date, a date.

Quote from Leonard

Leonard: Penny and Leonard 2.0. We can test it internally, shake out the bugs, and if we both think it is solid, we roll it out to the public.

Quote from Amy

Bernadette: Why do you think he asked you out again?
Penny: I don't know.
Amy: Maybe he's dying. That would be so romantic.
Penny: He's not dying.
Amy: Too bad. If he were, she could just throw him in bed and ride him right up until he flatlines.

Quote from Amy

Bernadette: Do you think you'll sleep with him tonight?
Penny: Absolutely not. Look, we're just gonna have dinner and, you know, see how it goes.
Amy: If he were dying, would you sleep with him?
Penny: What?
Amy: Assuming he were dying of something that couldn't be sexually transmitted. You know, like a spear wound to the head.
Penny: Okay, he is not dying.
Amy: How do you know? Are you a doctor?

Quote from Bernadette

Bernadette: You can make-believe, though. Sometimes Howard and I pretend that his arrhythmia is acting up and I'm a sexy cardiologist. And the naughty part is I'm not in his HMO network.

Quote from Bernadette

Bernadette: Relax, you know Leonard's always been crazy about you. It's gonna be great.
Penny: I know, but we've finally gotten to a place where we can hang out without it being weird. And what if something goes wrong? Then what?
Amy: Guess it'll just be Sheldon and me going on a double date with Howard and Bernadette.
Bernadette: Sure, we'd love that. (To Penny) Change your clothes, we got a lot riding on this.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: I don't understand the laughter. The object of Settlers of Catan is to build roads and settlements. To do so requires wood. Now, I have sheep. I need wood. Who has wood for my sheep?

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: The reason you're fixated on a good-natured simpleton like Penny is that she's the exact opposite of your first romantic attachment, your brilliant yet intimidating mother.
Leonard: Where on earth did you get that from?
Sheldon: It's in her book, "Needy Baby, Greedy Baby".
Leonard: That doesn't make it true.
Sheldon: It's called non-fiction for a reason, Leonard.

Quote from Raj

Raj: If they ever make a movie version of that book, you know who should play Leonard's mother? Sandra Bullock.
Howard: Why?
Raj: Because she's great in everything.

Quote from Penny

Leonard: So, do they have a name for a first date with someone you used to go out with?
Penny: Oh, that's a good question. How about awkward?
Leonard: Yeah, that sounds right.

Quote from Leonard

Leonard: Hey, how about if we pretend we're actually on a first date? See how that goes.
Penny: Okay.
Leonard: So, Polly, tell me about yourself.
Penny: It's Penny.
Leonard: Oh, sorry, yeah. Awkward.

Quote from Penny

Penny: Okay, uh, let's see. I'm from Nebraska, and ever since I was a little girl, I dreamed of moving to L.A. and becoming a movie star. Anyway, after four years of acting lessons and waiting tables, I've done a hemorrhoid commercial and a production of Anne Frank above a bowling alley. So, you know, dreams do come true.

Quote from Leonard

Leonard: Uh, let's see. Uh, I am an experimental physicist at Cal-Tech, most of my research is with high-powered lasers, and, oh, I've just gotten a big government grant to see if they can be used to knock out incoming ballistic missiles.
Penny: Wow. Can they?
Leonard: Oh, God, no. The money's pretty good. And I used the equipment to make my own Bat-signal.

Quote from Leonard

Penny: You are so funny.
Leonard: Good. Remember that when I take my shirt off.

Quote from Leonard

Leonard: You said always. You'll always have feelings for me.
Penny: So?
Leonard: So, that sounds more like something you'd say if you didn't want a relationship with someone. This isn't working out, but I'll always have feelings for you. I'm sorry I slept with your best friend, but I'll always have feelings for you. Here's the thing, Lisa, I'm into dudes now, but I'll always have feelings for you.

Quote from Leonard

Penny: You're over-thinking this.
Leonard: No, I'm not.
Penny: Yes, you are. You always over-think things.
Leonard: Ah, now there you go. Always made it worse.

Quote from Leonard

Penny: See, this is where everything goes wrong, when we talk.
Leonard: Well, I don't know how you have a relationship without talking.
Penny: Hey, I went out with this guy TJ for eight months. We never talked. To this day, I don't even know what TJ stands for.
Leonard: Wait, if you guys didn't talk, what did you ... Never mind, stupid question.

Quote from Leonard

Penny: Well, that was fun.
Leonard: Yeah, except for when I got the foot cramp.
Penny: You hung in there, though.
Leonard: Well, there was a lot at stake.

Quote from Leonard

Penny: Hey, I just remembered. I still got one of your inhalers.
Leonard: I can't believe you kept this.
Penny: Yeah, I was gonna throw it away, but I just couldn't.
Leonard: That is so sweet. In 25 to 30 minutes I'm gonna show you how much this means to me.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Leonard?
Leonard: Yeah, hi, hi. How's it going?
Sheldon: Uh, can't complain. Thanks for asking. What were you doing out at three o'clock in the morning?
Leonard: Well, uh - uh, what are you doing up?
Sheldon: I was using the bathroom.
Leonard: Yeah, well, so was I.
Sheldon: Really? I didn't see you in there.

Quote from Sheldon

Leonard: Obviously, when I saw that you were in ours, I went and used another one.
Sheldon: Where?
Leonard: The gas station across the street.
Sheldon: In your pajamas?
Leonard: Yes.
Sheldon: Without shoes?
Leonard: Yes.
Sheldon: On a cold winter's night?
Leonard: Yes.
Sheldon: Seems unlikely. Did you bring your asthma inhaler?
Leonard: Uh, uh, uh. Yes, I did!
Sheldon: Well, then, I guess it's plausible.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Hang on a second, mister.
Leonard: What?
Sheldon: After you used the facilities at the gas station, did you make a purchase?
Leonard: What?
Sheldon: It's customary when using the rest room at a retail establishment to make a small purchase. Did you?
Leonard: No.
Sheldon: Here's two dollars. Go buy some beef jerky.
Leonard: I don't want beef jerky.
Sheldon: It's not about you. It's about a poor immigrant from Pakistan trying to make his way in America by working the graveyard shift at the Colorado Boulevard Chevron.
Leonard: Fine.
Sheldon: Needy Baby, Greedy Baby indeed.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Leonard will be here in a moment. He's looking for a different parking space.
Howard: Why?
Sheldon: We were next to a car with an ask me about my grandchildren bumper sticker, and I was afraid if we ran into them on the way out, I'd be obligated to do so.

Quote from Sheldon

Bernadette: I'm so disappointed it didn't work with him and Penny.
Amy: Me, too. Out of deference to them, let's not flaunt our happy relationship.
Sheldon: You have a keen insight into the human heart, Amy Farrah Fowler.

Quote from Sheldon

Leonard: We are next to a Subaru with a Gore/Lieberman bumper sticker.
Sheldon: Well, I doubt they'd want to talk about that, so we're fine.

Quote from Leonard

Penny: No, that's okay, Bernadette. Sometimes these things just don't work out.
Leonard: Yeah, it's all good. We'll always have feelings for each other.
Bernadette: Oh, that's nice.
Leonard: See, she knew what always meant.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: People, people, please, before you say something you both regret, I'd like to place my order.

Quote from Sheldon

Penny: You know why we can't be together? Because you always have to be right.
Leonard: Oh, that is not true.
Sheldon: I've got to go with Leonard on this. He is wrong more than anyone I know.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Leonard, promise me that when our new waitress comes over, you will not start a complicated on-again, off-again relationship with her, because I am very, very hungry.

Quote from Amy

Amy: If you and Leonard get back together, Sheldon and I will finally have someone to go on double dates with.
Bernadette: What about me and Howard?
Amy: Fine, we can double with you, too. So insecure.
