Quote from Leonard

Sheldon: I've changed. Like the frog who's put in a pot of water that's heated so gradually, he doesn't realize he's boiling to death.
Penny: Or you're the frog who's been kissed by the princess and turned into a prince.
Leonard: Or you're just a tall, annoying frog.

Quote from Mike Rostenkowski

Bernadette: I think what we're all trying to say is that you don't seem to be remembering how traumatic the experience was for you.
Raj: Like how women often forget the pain of childbirth.
Mike Rostenkowski: Like a woman. Great analogy.

Quote from Amy

Quote from Amy

Amy: *Signs Amy Farrah Fowler on the iPad* Why yes, I would like to take a survey.

Howard: How come we never get that option?

Quote from Howard

Penny: You know, my aunt changed her diet and in a few months -
Howard: Went to space? I don't think so! Now pass the soy sauce. Not the green one, the red one.

Raj: This is so much better than watching TV like a muggle.

Quote from Howard

Howard: Hey. Good news, somebody in this room gets to take a ride on a rocket.

Howard: No, not that. Although you already agreed to it, so no takebacks.

Quote from Sheldon

Leonard: Penny and I are going to go shop for a dining room table. Do you want to come with us?
Sheldon: I'd love to, but I'm too busy falling back in love with Windows 98.
Leonard: Seriously? You haven't used this desk in years. The second I want to get rid of it you're up here working.
Sheldon: I can't talk right now. I have several thousand updates to install.

Quote from Leonard

Penny: Ooh, this one looks nice.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: You were really going to stand by me against the dining room table?
Amy: Of course I was.
Sheldon: Wait, how do I know you're not manipulating me right now?
Amy: I think if I were manipulating you, you'd be smart enough to see it.
Sheldon: How do I know you're not saying that as part of the manipulation?
Amy: You'd be smart enough to see that too.
Sheldon: Okay. Sorry I gave you such a hard time. I just had to be sure.

Quote from Mike Rostenkowski

Raj: First off, know that we love you and cherish you.

Quote from Leonard

Bernadette: It just seems silly for us to sit in two groups.
Leonard: It's not silly if you think of that group as being led by a big, evil baby.

Quote from Leonard

Leonard: Don't anthropomorphize him. He's got big eyes but his feelings are not like ours.

Quote from Raj

Raj: Oh sure. I sit on the floor for years and no one cares. The pretty white girl's there ten seconds and suddenly we're all running to IKEA.

Quote from Raj

Raj: Ha ha, very funny. Make fun of the foreign guy. For your information, there are four times as many Indians as Americans so the way we say it is right.
Howard: Say what?
Raj: "Moose-stache".

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Wait, is this really worth it? We've lived together for years without ne'ery an argument, but we start talking about a table and suddenly we're at each other's throats.
Leonard: Ne'ery an argument?! Ne'ery!?!
Sheldon: That means not one or not any. Maybe instead of a table you should buy a dictionary.
Sheldon: (To himself) Well, I don't know whether I won that but at least he's upset.

Quote from Howard

Raj: This (wand remote control) might be my second favorite brown magic wand.
Howard: Well, that's the last time I play with that.

Quote from Raj

Raj: I just want you to know I'm happy to look in on Bernadette while you're gone.
Howard: Thank you.
Raj: And if anything were to happen to you, we will name our first born son Howard. I'm just kidding, we'll name him Daleep after my grandfather.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: I have spent years turning this lump of clay in to an acceptable conduit for my will. Then you came along and reshaped him with your new fangled ideas and fancy genitals.

Quote from Leonard

Leonard: You're too close to it, but Amy has had a huge impact on your life.
Sheldon: You're right. Without realizing it, I have allowed that women to alter my personality.
Leonard: Sheldon, you didn't have a personality. You just had some shows you liked.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: No, you've opened my eyes to the truth. Amy has made me a more affectionate, open-minded person. And that stops now.

Quote from Amy

Amy: He knew as your girlfriend I wasn't going to let him bring a table in to your apartment. I mean, a table? Come on!

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Amy pointed out you were only trying to manipulate me.
Amy: Which you also figured out by yourself.
Sheldon: Which I also figured out by myself!

Quote from Howard

Howard: What's going on?
Bernadette: Maybe you should have a seat.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: My spot on the couch has a great view of a window. Sometimes I can see space battles through it. It's called a TV.

Penny: Oh, please. When I first met you, you were incapable of touching another human being. Now you're holding hands, going on dates, you even made out with her on a train.

Howard: Sure.
Mike Massimino: The stuff you have is wrong.
