The Locomotion Reverberation

'The Locomotion Reverberation' - Season 10, Episode 15

When Sheldon threatens to derail their project, Leonard and Howard find a way to keep him occupied. Meanwhile, Penny and Amy enjoy a girls' night out with Bernadette, leaving Raj and Stuart to look after the baby.

Air Date: February 9, 2017.

Quote from Sheldon

Howard: How'd you even get that up the stairs?
Sheldon: I said to myself, "I think I can, I think I can." And then I couldn't, so I paid two men who promised not to come rob us later.

Quote from Leonard

Leonard: You know, I do have a way to get him out of our hair. I've been holding onto this for a few years, but maybe now's the time.
Howard: We can just lock the door; you don't have to kill him.
Leonard: You can't kill him; he'll just respawn at the last save point.

Colonel Williams: What's this?
Leonard: Oh, nothing. Just some math we don't need.
Colonel Williams: This is a different approach. Are you trying to get the guidance system even smaller?
Leonard: It's just a theory. Uh, it's not even worked out.
Colonel Williams: Oh. I want this.
Howard: But we've already met the agreed upon specs. Going smaller would require weeks' worth of new computations.
Colonel Williams: So get the kid with the two shirts to do it.

Quote from Howard

Howard: The kid with the two shirts screwed us again.

Quote from Leonard

Leonard: I got it.
Howard: You really figured it out?
Leonard: No, but when we show this nonsense to Sheldon, it will make him crazy, and he'll have to fix it.
Howard: Oh, you're a genius.
Leonard: Yeah, I know. That's not even a math symbol. That's just Charlie Brown's hair.

Quote from Bernadette

Bernadette: Stuart, don't you drink my milk!

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Leonard, in the world of theoretical physics, you never finish; so much is unprovable.
But when I was studying that railway guide, it was so tangible and so satisfying that something just clicked. Then it clacked. Then it clicked, then it clacked, click-clack clickety-clack, and here we are. Whoo-whoo!

Quote from Bernadette

Amy: Is there anything we can do?
Bernadette: Sure. Open up a college fund, shop for life insurance, and in the laundry room, there's a mountain of dirty laundry. Wash it or burn in, your choice.

Quote from Howard

Howard: Okay, I'm zeroing out the electro-osmotic flow rate in the micro-fluidic channel.
Leonard: Nicely done, Howard.
Howard: Well, my wife is four-foot-ten and sexually satisfied, so clearly I know my way around tiny things.
Leonard: Good for you, on the cutting edge of new technology and still making inappropriate comments about the mother of your child.
Howard: Those are just the things I say out loud.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Gentlemen, we need to stop immediately.
Howard: What's wrong?
Sheldon: I am looking at the math, and I think we can make the device between eight and ten percent smaller.
Leonard: That's great, but the Air Force approved the specs. We're good to go.
Howard: Yeah, it doesn't need to be smaller.
Sheldon: Shame on you. Where would we be if poodle breeders had that attitude? I'll tell you. We would have the standard and the miniature poodle, but no toy or teacup. Which by the way, is not an officially recognized breed, but that's just poodle politics.
Leonard: Can we please stop talking about poodles?
Sheldon: Fine. Candy bars. Now, do you enjoy a fun size? I know you do.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Oh, that was my sixth trip to the bathroom. As long as that's not a urinary tract infection, that's a personal best.

Quote from Amy

Bernadette: For Howie's occupation, should I include that he was an astronaut?
Amy: Well, he mentioned it in his mother's eulogy, so why not?

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: You'll never believe it. Leonard gave me the most incredible gift, a trip to a historic railway, and I get to operate an actual locomotive.
Amy: Wow. He finally used it. What'd you do?
Sheldon: No idea. All I know is, I'm going to be working on the railroad all the live long day.

Quote from Amy

Amy: Well, I'm really happy for you.
Sheldon: Oh, no. It's not just me. No, the railway is four hours from the nearest airport, and guess who gets to drive me.
Amy: I give up.
Sheldon: You!
Amy: No. I really give up.

Quote from Leonard

Leonard: This train thing worked out better than I thought. He's home studying the engineer's manual.
Howard: It's so peaceful without him here. Can I ask you how much that cost?
Leonard: $4,000. Worth every penny.

Quote from Stuart

Raj: Okay, you ladies have fun tonight.
Stuart: Don't worry about Halley. Uncle Stuart's on the job.
Raj: Under the careful supervision of her godfather.
Stuart: My apologies. I didn't mean to offend you, Don Corleone.

Quote from Raj

Stuart: Okay, instead of arguing all night, let's just split up the baby chores.
Raj: Yeah, great. Um, I'll put food in her top half, you deal with whatever comes out the bottom.

Quote from Howard

Leonard: (electrical crackling) What is that?
Howard: I don't know, but if he yells, "It's alive," we run.

Quote from Howard

Leonard: Okay, look, Sheldon, the Colonel wants us to make the guidance system smaller, and we can't do it without you.
Sheldon: Interesting. So I was right.
Howard: Open a window. It's about to get smug in here.

Quote from Amy

Amy: Did you hear anything back from the Caltech preschool?
Bernadette: Not yet, but we're gonna apply to a bunch of others just to keep our options open.
Penny: Okay, stop that! No more preschool talk. Tonight is about having fun.
Amy: Nothing says fun like being scolded.

Quote from Stuart

Stuart: So we just throw this away?
Raj: What else are you gonna do with it? Put it in your coffee?
Stuart: Well, I don't take it black.

Quote from Penny

Penny: Sorry, guys. This club was so great. How could they turn it into a bookstore? I thought we got rid of all those.

Quote from Raj

Raj: Little parenting tip: sleeping babies hate flash photography.

Quote from Bernadette

Penny: Is everything okay?
Bernadette: Yeah. I may have just left my infant daughter with Patrick and SpongeBob.

Quote from Penny

Bernadette: You're upset I had a baby?
Penny: No, of course not. I just I didn't think it would make me have all these feelings.
Amy: What feelings?
Penny: Pressure! I mean, she's looking at preschools, she has a minivan, she has a 401(k). Before she talked about it, I just thought that was a race.

Quote from Sheldon

Leonard: Aren't you gonna look at the board to see how right we are?
Sheldon: No, thanks. I'm busy trying to fix this fuel pump.
Howard: It's a manifold.
Sheldon: Oh. Well, I guess it's fixed.

Quote from Sheldon

Leonard: Just look at the board.
Sheldon: That's wrong.
Leonard: Oh, no! What should we have done differently?
Sheldon: Well, first of all, you can't use relativistic and non-relativistic vectors in the same equation.
Howard: Told ya. (scoffs) Can you fix it for us?
Sheldon: (sighs) Okay, but this is the last time. (Draws Charlie Brown's face on the squiggle Leonard drew on the board) Nice try, blockheads.

Quote from Sheldon

Leonard: So, what do you say?
Sheldon: Oh, what choice do I have? You need me. (pointing to the engine) I'm like the crankshaft of this team.
Howard: That's a turbo.
Sheldon: Well, whatever it is, it looks heavy. I'm gonna need you two to get it downstairs before Amy comes home.

Quote from Amy

Penny: You guys ready to get crazy?
Amy: Well, the bra under here ain't beige.

Quote from Leonard

Howard: Sheldon, we don't need to make this smaller. Your work is done. Go home.
Sheldon: I don't want to go home.
Leonard: Then go for a little walk.
Sheldon: Then what?
Leonard: Just keep walking.

Quote from Howard

Leonard: At least it's quiet when he takes bathroom breaks.
Howard: I know. That's why I keep refilling his water when he's not looking.
Leonard: You're kidding.
Howard: I don't care if we're in a drought, it's worth it.

Quote from Bernadette

Penny: I can't believe you have to fill out a preschool application for an infant.
Raj: Uh, the one at Caltech has a crazy wait list. I warned you, a lot of people apply when they're still pregnant.
Bernadette: Well, I didn't. I also skipped a birthing class to see Zootopia, so back off.

Quote from Amy

Penny: Seriously, let's plan a night, you know, give you a break. We could go dancing.
Bernadette: That sounds really nice.
Amy: Oh. All this week, the Early Music Society of Pasadena is doing a joint concert with the San Gabriel Renaissance Choir.
Penny: Okay, that's the one to beat.
Amy: Good luck. People have been saying that for 600 years.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: And guess where we get to sleep? Our choice of a turn-of-the-century railway bunkhouse or a working caboose. Now, the problem with a caboose is there's no bathroom, but the problem with the bunkhouse is it's not a caboose.

Quote from Amy

Sheldon: On the first day, I get to drive a steam engine. Oh, and the second day, a diesel engine. Oh, and if I volunteer to do track maintenance and paperwork, they'll let me stay as long as I want. So you might want to pack enough clothes for the rest of our lives.
Amy: Can I pee now?

Colonel Williams: Just wanted to see how the guidance system's coming along.
Howard: Great. We found a cooling solution that allowed us to get the size of the prototype down to the target specs.
Leonard: As a cooling solution, it's pretty cool.
Colonel Williams: Don't do that.

Leonard: Sir, uh, if I may, uh, we've put a lot of thought and effort into this current prototype. It's a really elegant solution, and most importantly, it works.
Colonel Williams: Yeah, I want this.
Howard: But that's just a theory. It's not even a complete thought.
Colonel Williams: You both make excellent points. And thank you for presenting it so articulately. Make this.

Quote from Bernadette

Raj: Like I said, you ladies have fun.
Bernadette: We will. Got my dancing shoes, got my breast pump. Let's party.
Penny: You know, if you pump at the bar, I promise we'll get free drinks.

Quote from Raj

Bernadette: Call if there's any problems.
Penny: No. She's busy. You call Howard.
Raj: Got it.
Bernadette: Call me. Don't call Howard.
Raj: I would never call Howard.

Quote from Leonard

Howard: I can't believe we have to ask Sheldon to come back and help us.
Leonard: Oh, boo-hoo. I spent four grand on a gift that only got rid of him for an afternoon.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Well, I would love to help you, but since I discovered the satisfaction of working with my hands on a train engine, I don't think I can go back to theory. I'm an engineer now. And, hey, just to be clear, a train engineer. Not that goofy kind you are.

Quote from Howard

Leonard: Sheldon, you can still go on the trip in a few weeks. Just help us out.
Sheldon: Sorry. I need to work on this engine so when I get to the train yard I won't look foolish.
Howard: (laughs) He's worried about looking foolish. That's a heapin' helping of irony right there.

Quote from Howard

Leonard: Okay. This is everything he had on the board. I'm sure we can figure the rest out.
Howard: All right. (clears throat) Hmm. Feel free to jump in. "Hmm" is all I got.

Quote from Howard

Leonard: We can get this. Is there any chance it's upside-down?
Howard: Maybe we can find another theoretical physicist to help us.
Leonard: It's classified. If we tell anyone, we'd get in trouble.
Howard: Hey, I came up with that and "hmm." You haven't pitched anything.

Quote from Raj

Raj: Nothing to worry about. She's just been crying for a little while, and I was wondering if you had any tricks to get her to sleep.
Stuart: She was sleeping just fine till you took a selfie with her!
Raj: She was blowing a spit bubble. It was adorable!

Quote from Amy

Amy: Hey, there's another dance club nearby. I mean, I don't know how you feel about Latin music, but according to their "horas of operacion", they're open.
Penny: Maybe we should just call it a night.
Amy: You sure? They're open till dos.

Quote from Bernadette

Bernadette: You think that stuff is fun? Being a parent is terrifying. I'm constantly worried, I'm always tired, and in a few minutes, I'm gonna milk myself in a bookstore parking lot.

Quote from Bernadette

Penny: It's just, Leonard and I have been married for two years, and we're no further along than when we were dating.
Amy: Come on. You've got so much to feel good about. You've got a great job now.
Penny: Yeah, I guess I am making decent money.
Amy: You make more than I do.
Bernadette: You may not have a house yet, but your apartment's great.
Amy: It's bigger than mine.
Bernadette: And Leonard loves you so much, he married you twice.
Amy: I'm not even engaged once. I don't even know if Sheldon thinks about marriage. I'm not getting any younger. Honestly, I kind of thought by now, we might have had some sort of-
Bernadette: Careful. The sound of crying can make me lactate.
Amy: I'm sorry. I can't help it. (crying)
Penny: Oh, that's gonna make me cry. (crying)
Bernadette: And there they go.
Penny: Ew.

Quote from Sheldon

Leonard: Come on, Sheldon. You can't turn your back on physics. Besides, you have no idea what you're doing with this stuff.
Howard: But if you really want to learn the mechanical side, I can teach you anything you want to know.
Leonard: And instead of standing around watching, you can help us build your smaller guidance system.
Howard: And with all these new skills, you'd be able to fix any model train. You'd be the king of the train store!
Sheldon: Excuse me. I have a girlfriend. I'm already king of the train store.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Oh, hey. If you knocked, I couldn't hear you. I'm welding this locomotive engine. And if you didn't knock, how about some manners?
