Quote from Penny

Leonard: What am I supposed to do?
Penny: Err, keep your mouth off other women.

Quote from Sheldon

Penny: Wait, what is wrong with you two? He was talking about television during their date night.
Sheldon: Oh, not just date night. Our 5th anniversary.
Penny: Okay, see, that's even dumber than you wondering if being bitten by a goat would give you the powers of a goat.
Sheldon: If that happens, don't make me wait ten years to watch you eat a tin can.

Quote from Sheldon

Penny: Hey, I don't think she's wrong about you going too slow in the relationship.
Sheldon: Too slow?
Penny: Yeah, you've been going out for years. You haven't even slept together.
Sheldon: That's right. It's called foreplay.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: But I have been getting better with sarcasm, if you want to give that a try.
Amy: *sarcastic* Oh, sure, I'd love to.
Sheldon: Whenever you're ready.

Quote from Penny

Sheldon: Amy's mad at me, and I'm not clear why.
Penny: Okay, were you talking before she got upset?
Sheldon: Yes.
Penny: That's probably it.

Quote from Sheldon

Amy: This isn't easy to say, because I love you, but... I need some time to take a step back and reevaluate our situation.
Sheldon: Oh.
Amy: I hope you understand.
Sheldon: Okay.
Amy: Bye, Sheldon.
Sheldon: Well, Gollum, you're an expert on rings.
*Sheldon takes out a proposal ring from his desk drawer*
What do I do with this one?

Quote from Sheldon

Amy: Sheldon, do you understand the irony of your fixation on a man with super speed, while after five years all I can get out of you is a distracted make-out session on a couch?
Sheldon: Irony's not really my strong suit.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: What happened?
Penny: Your buddy got mugged by some baby farm animals.
Sheldon: Been there.

Quote from Sheldon

Penny: What'd you say to her?
Sheldon: Well, I just asked her if I should start watching the new Flash TV series.
Penny: And that made her angry?
Sheldon: Baffling, right? We were necking like a couple of hooligans under the school bleachers. I stopped so I could ask the question. Next thing I know, good-bye, kissy face. Hello, yelly face.

Quote from Bernadette

Bernadette: I think if Raj wants to break up with a girl, he can do it.
Howard: How are you saying that with a straight face?
Bernadette: *laughs* I don't know.

Quote from Leonard

Penny: Thanks for cooking.
Leonard: My pleasure.
Penny: That carrot was delicious.
Leonard: Yeah. I wish I'd fought harder for the rest of 'em.

Quote from Howard

Bernadette: Maybe it's time we tell him he needs to move out.
Howard: We should have done it months ago.
Bernadette: I know, but his store was reopening, and then there were the holidays, and then he was sick.
Howard: Yeah, right, sick. He didn't have jaundice. He just looks like that.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: My aunt and uncle were married 63 years. Towards the end, it was like watching cheese melt.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: After all these years. I'm really happy for the two of you.
Penny: Oh, thank you.
Leonard: Thanks.
Sheldon: Now get out of my spot.

Quote from Raj

Emily: Makes you feel alive, doesn't it?
Raj: So does enjoying a meal at a well-lit restaurant, but here we are.

Quote from Raj

Emily: If I stick a light bulb on this, will it make a great lamp for my bedroom?
Raj: You're kidding, right?
Emily: Oh, is this freaking you out?
Raj: I guess I'm just more of a Pottery Barn, Crate and Barrel kind of guy. Maybe Pier 1 if I really want to cut loose.

Quote from Leonard

Sheldon: Oh, good. You're here. I need your assistance.
Leonard: Can it wait until I put a Band-Aid on a goat bite?

Quote from Howard

Raj: I don't know, guys. Maybe this relationship isn't for me. Maybe I should break up with her.
Howard: Right. You're gonna break up with a girl who has sex with you. Can you believe this guy?

Quote from Raj

Emily: You aren't scared, are you?
Raj: Of ghosts, no. Of you, little bit.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: I shouldn't have asked so many questions.
Penny: No, it's okay.
Leonard: Yeah, maybe it's good you got us talking about this stuff.
Sheldon: Well, look at that. Even when I'm causing problems, I make the world a better place.

Quote from Sheldon

Penny: Why is everyone so concerned with us setting a date? We're committed to each other. We're happy. A ceremony isn't gonna change anything.
Sheldon: So you're never getting married? It's his whining, isn't it?
Leonard: Sheldon, I'm not a whiner.
Sheldon: It's amusing that he doesn't hear it.

Quote from Howard

Bernadette: Well, you've been living here a while now.
Stuart: I know. I may sell comic books at work, but the real superheroes are sitting right in front of me.
Bernadette: Yeah...
Howard: His middle name is David. Go.

Quote from Leonard

Penny: Look, I'm not happy this happened, but I think I can get past it. I mean, we weren't engaged at the time, and it was just kissing.
Leonard: Right. Just kissing. It wasn't even very good. She was a smoker. I'd just been seasick...
Penny: Okay, that's enough. Stop talking.

Quote from Sheldon

Leonard: I'm going to guess that your main concern is the time commitment of watching an entire season of a new show.
Sheldon: Oh, no, not just a season. If I'm in, I'm in for the whole run, even if the quality declines.
Leonard: I get it. Smallville almost wrecked you.
Sheldon: Exactly. You know, I waited ten years to see a guy everyone knows can fly, fly.

Quote from Stuart

Stuart: I don't want to rush you, but I'm closing a little early tonight.
Raj: Ooh, hot date?
Stuart: Uh, no. I overheard Bernadette tell Howard she was making him a meatloaf, and you don't have to not ask me twice.

Quote from Stuart

Raj: Hey, you should totally get it. In fact, I'll buy it for you.
Stuart: Sold!
Emily: Raj, you don't have to do that.
Stuart: Too late! No returns!

Quote from Howard

Raj: You're one to talk. You've been complaining about Stuart living here for the past year. I don't see you showing him the door.
Howard: That's not the same thing. Emily's a person. Stuart's more like an infestation, something you spray for.

Quote from Bernadette

Raj: Baloney, okay? You two are as afraid of hurting someone's feelings as I am.
Bernadette: That's not true. We were just laughing right in your face.

Quote from Sheldon

Penny: Still haven't heard from her?
Sheldon: No, and I'm confused. It's been nearly 24 hours. Amy should have figured out she's wrong by now.

Quote from Bernadette

Bernadette: Did you eat all my yoghurt?
Howard: You mean the one that makes ladies do the thing that ladies pretend they don't do even though they do?
Bernadette: You know... which yoghurt I mean.

Quote from Howard

Howard: When he gets home, I'm dropping the hammer.
Bernadette: Ooh, I like when you take charge.
Howard: Oh, I'm not taking charge. You're the hammer.

Quote from Sheldon

Leonard: It's not just the date. We haven't talked about anything. Big wedding, small wedding, indoor, outdoor...
Sheldon: Outdoor? Oh. I can RSVP no right now.

Quote from Sheldon

Penny: All right, well, I want it in a church.
Leonard: Fine. I want black-tie.
Penny: Fine. I want to release butterflies.
Sheldon: Seriously? Airborne worms?

Quote from Sheldon

Leonard: Okay. Well, then it's settled: small indoor church wedding, black-tie, no butterflies.
Penny: Sounds perfect.
Leonard: Great.
Sheldon: You still didn't pick a date.
Penny: Stay out of it!
Leonard: Shut up!

Quote from Raj

Emily: It's a beautiful night.
Raj: Oh, yes, we've got the moon and the trees and Elizabeth McNulty, who apparently died when she was the same age I am.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Hey, next, why don't we tackle your penchant for whining and Penny's love of the old glug-glug?

Quote from Howard

Stuart: I felt bad for finishing your yoghurt, so I bought more. And, Howard, your favourite fruit is in season. Crunch Berries.
Bernadette: Don't let that sway you.
Howard: It's hard not to. They taste so much better than real berries.

Quote from Raj

Raj: Look, I care about you a lot, but we are very different people.
Emily: Are you breaking up with me?
Raj: No, no, I'm just pointing out that you're dark on the inside and I'm dark on the outside.

Quote from Penny

Leonard: So... we're still getting married?
Penny: Yes.
Leonard: Because we love each other.
Penny: Yes.
Leonard: And it's the happiest day of our lives.
Penny: *short laugh* Don't push it.

Quote from Leonard

Leonard: I can do that. From now on, this mouth, you and food. That's it.

Quote from Amy

Amy: I didn't kill anything. You did, talking about your stupid TV show.
Sheldon: Excuse me. Starting to watch a television show that might run for years isn't a decision to take lightly. I'm wrestling with a big commitment issue here.
Amy: Really? That's the commitment issue you're wrestling with?

Quote from Raj

Raj: You guys ever notice that Emily has a bit of a twisted side?
Bernadette: You mean 'cause she has weird tattoos?
Raj: No, because she wants to have sex with me in a graveyard.

Quote from Bernadette

Bernadette: The only issue is that everybody has their own thing. And as long as it's two consenting adults, I guess I don't see the harm in it.
Raj: Well, what if it's one consenting adult and one adult who pretends to consent because he's afraid of being alone?
Bernadette: Well, then I guess bring a blanket. The grass gets damp at night.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Anyway...
*leans in to kiss Amy, but gets pushed away*
Amy: What are you doing?
Sheldon: You're right, you did kind of kill the mood.

Quote from Sheldon

Penny: Well, Sheldon, when you're kissing a girl, she expects the attention to be on her.
Sheldon: It was. I asked her if she thought I should watch The Flash.

Quote from Sheldon

Leonard: So why haven't we picked a date?
Penny: You know why.
Leonard: Well, of course I know why. But just for fun... why?
Penny: Not in a rush, busy with work...
Sheldon: Things are good right now.
Penny: Really good.

Quote from Howard

Bernadette: Howard Joel Wolowitz, you get back here.
Howard: *quietly* Never should have told you my middle name.

Quote from Raj

Emily: Look, Raj, be honest with me. If you want to end things, just do it. Don't expect me to do it for you.
Raj: End things? I'm trying to tell you that I love you.

Quote from Penny

Penny: Wow, there's a Denny's in Vegas you can actually get married in.
Leonard: Doesn't sound very romantic.
Penny: Yeah, but we could get heart-shaped pancakes.

Quote from Penny

Penny: And you know what the best part is? We took our time. I mean, we met, we were friends for a couple years, then we got together, and then we got untogether, then we worked out all our problems, and now we know everything about each other, we can just go forward with no surprises and no regrets.
Leonard: Right. No surprises.
Penny: And no regrets.

Quote from Sheldon

Amy: Being your girlfriend is so challenging. Emotionally, physically. I've been incredibly patient for years.
Sheldon: Strongly disagree. Go on.

Quote from Penny

Leonard: That was really intense.
Penny: Well, now we know, next time we go to the farmers' market, the order is petting zoo first, then buy vegetables.

Quote from Leonard

Penny: Sheldon, we're getting married.
Sheldon: But you've been engaged for over a year now, and you don't even have a wedding date.
Penny: Well, we will. We're just not in a rush.
Sheldon: Okay.
Leonard: We're gonna set a date.
Sheldon: Okay. If you say so.
Penny: Yeah, it's just, things are good right now.
Leonard: Really good.
Penny: I'm focusing on my job.
Leonard: And we've been busy with our paper.
Penny: So busy.
Leonard: Yeah, we'll pick a date when we pick a date.
Penny: Yeah.
Sheldon: Okay.
Penny: You know, I can see why Amy's mad at you!
Leonard: Yeah, shut up, Sheldon!

Quote from Howard

Howard: Bernie, Stuart just pulled up. So remember, the key is to be firm. Show no weakness.
Bernadette: Right.
Howard: Good luck.

Quote from Stuart

*Stuart's phone rings*
Howard: You need to take that?
Stuart: It's just my dad, probably calling to wish me a happy birthday. I'll call him back. You were saying?
