- The title references the reverberation from Raj & Penny's "hook-up" in the fourth season finale, "The Roommate Transmogrification".
Amy: Can you see how a grown man and accomplished scientist who invests in a store that sells picture books about flying men in colorful underwear might be wasting both his financial and intellectual resources?
Amy: Then I think it's a terrific idea.
Sheldon: Great! Wait until you hear about our van.
Sheldon: I have some odd freckles on my buttocks. Can I make an appointment for you to look at them?
Emily: Erm, okay, I guess.
Amy: I'm with him three years, nothing. She's with him two minutes and he's taking his pants off.
Howard: You know, when I was a kid I loved going there but I could never get a ride.
Raj: Ooh, what if we got a van and drove around, and picked kids up?
Sheldon: Nice! Like at parks and schools.
Howard: Toy stores, puppet shows.
Leonard: Hold on, so your idea is to get a van and cruise the streets looking for kids to pick up?
Leonard: And are you going to use candy to lure them in?
Raj: We are now!
Raj: You guys kiss and hold hands.
Leonard: I've seen him do it. It's not romantic.
Leonard: Will you stay out of this?
Sheldon: If only Penny had said that once in a while.
