The Proposal Proposal

'The Proposal Proposal' - Season 11, Episode 1

Amy's answer to Sheldon's proposal is overshadowed by his need to be the center of attention. Meanwhile, Howard and Bernadette get some unexpected news.

Air Date: September 25, 2017.

Quote from Mary Cooper

Mary Cooper: I am so happy for you two, but I'm not surprised. I've been praying for this.
Sheldon: Well, God had nothing to do with it. It happened because I was kissing another woman, and it made me realize I wanted to be with Amy.
Mary Cooper:More than one woman was interested in you? I might have prayed a little too hard.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Wait, oh, and I just I want to let you know right now that we are not getting married in a church.
Mary Cooper: That's all right, Sheldon. Anywhere Jesus is is a church.
Sheldon: Well, he won't be at our wedding.
Mary Cooper: He's in my heart, so if I'm there, he'll be there.
Sheldon: Okay, well, then, he's your plus-one. You don't get to bring anyone else.

Sheldon: I've thought about it, and I really want to spend the rest of my life with Amy. Do I have your blessing?
Stephen Hawking: Well, Sheldon, I think you should make her finger like Saturn and put a ring on it.

Quote from Stuart

Stuart: Uh you know, they might like this. Superman and Wonder Woman, it's kind of romantic.
Raj: Hmm. You know what? Why am I buying them a gift? They have love. Screw them and their happiness. What do you have for someone who's bitter and alone?
Stuart: Literally everything.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: You know what? Let me give you a better question. Here, um, "Dr. Cooper, "I heard you were working on a top-secret project "for the U.S. military. Why don't you tell us about that?" See, that's a great question.
Dr. Harris: Okay, what was that like?
Sheldon: Oh, I can't tell you that, it's top-secret.

Quote from Stuart

Raj: It's just it's hard talking to my other friends about this, but I knew you would understand.
Stuart: Why is that?
Raj: Because you and I are both alone, which is actually kind of comforting, because at least we can be alone together.
Stuart: Mm. This is, this is awkward. I, um, I was actually gonna close up a little early tonight 'cause I have a date.
Raj: Really?
Stuart: Yeah.
Raj: (clears throat) Forgive me if I'm having trouble being happy for you.
Stuart: Don't be silly, I'm loving your pain.

Sheldon: Those people were in the presence of a world-class mind, and all they wanted to talk about was their own nonsense.
Stephen Hawking: Can you see the irony in that statement? How about now? How about now? I'll wait.

Quote from Penny

Penny: All right, so what are we celebrating?
Leonard: Well, you know, Bernadette and Howard are pregnant again, and Amy and Sheldon are getting married. I didn't want you to feel left out.
Penny: Left out? Well, Bernadette has to grow a baby inside of her, and Amy has to marry one. My life is great.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: I realized that Iron Man is great. And also, that Captain America is great. And sometimes, Iron Man is in a Captain America movie, and he's not mad it's not an Iron Man movie. You know, he can fly in, give the audience a thrill, and then fly away. And that should've been me tonight. I should've been the delightful cameo in your movie.
Amy: Thank you, Sheldon.
Sheldon: Instead, I was like the Hulk, and I-
Amy: Okay, please stop talking about the Avengers.

Quote from Amy

Sheldon: I came here to propose. If you'd said no, I wouldn't want to stick around looking at your stupid face.
Now, mind you, your face is only stupid in the "no" version of the story.
Amy: But I said yes, so I get a lifetime of this.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Hello?
Leonard: Oh, hey, where you been? We've been calling you for hours.
Sheldon: Oh, I'm sorry, my phone was on "airplane" mode.
Leonard: Why?
Sheldon: Because I was on an airplane. (makes confused gesture to Amy)

Quote from Amy

Sheldon: We're engaged.
Raj: Oh, my God, that's amazing! Wait, uh, tell me everything.
Sheldon: Well, Dr. Nowitzki was kissing me-
Amy: Okay, you can stop leading with that part of the story.

Quote from Bernadette

Bernadette: This wasn't supposed to happen. We were careful.
Penny: Yeah, I didn't even think you could get pregnant while you were breastfeeding.
Bernadette: Well, guess what? You can!

Quote from Raj

Howard: Look at Nowitzki over there.
Leonard: I can't believe she tried to steal Sheldon from Amy.
Raj: You know what? I'm gonna go there and tell her that they're engaged now and that her little plan didn't work.
Howard: Because you're sticking up for Sheldon, or because you're still mad she rejected you?
Raj: Too far away, can't hear you.

Quote from Raj

Raj: Hello, Ramona.
Ramona Nowitzki: Mm. Hello.
Raj: Why are you sitting by yourself? Oh, that's right, Sheldon's in New Jersey being engaged to Amy.
Ramona Nowitzki: I heard.
Raj: Now that Sheldon's out of the picture, I could give you one more chance to go out with me.
Ramona Nowitzki: Nope, I'm good.
Raj: You sure? I will not ask again.
Ramona Nowitzki: I sincerely hope not.
Raj: Very well. I'm going to leave before this gets awkward.

Quote from Stuart

Raj: Hey, Stuart.
Stuart: Oh, hey, Raj. What can I help you with?
Raj: I need to buy an engagement gift.
Stuart: Oh, well, you came to the wrong place.

Quote from Raj

Raj: It's for Sheldon and Amy.
Stuart: No way! They're engaged?
Raj: Yeah.
Stuart: Well, that's exciting news. Who would've thought Sheldon and Amy would be the next two to tie the knot?
Raj: Tell me about it. I'm the one who caught the bouquet at Leonard and Penny's wedding.

Quote from Amy

Dr. Harris: Amy, I recently read your paper on lesions in the olfactory receptors in the brain. It was inspired.
Amy: Oh, well, I guess it didn't stink. But if it did, that rat wouldn't have known it.

Quote from Sheldon

Dr. Harris: Actually, I do have a question for Dr. Cooper. When Amy first told you about her approach to synaptic tracing, did you think it was gonna revolutionize the field?
Sheldon: Really? That's your question? What are you, Entertainment Tonight?

Quote from Howard

Bernadette: But then we realized that it's a gift, in the sense that we didn't ask for it, and we may not have chosen it-
Howard: And we already have one.

Quote from Penny

Penny: You know, whenever I find a top I like, I always go back and get a second one in a different color. Which I hope is not the case with your baby.

Quote from Penny

Leonard: Uh, Surprise!
Penny: Oh, crap. Is it our anniversary?
Leonard: No. Wait. No.

Quote from Penny

Leonard: So do you not want the cake?
Penny: Try and take it away, see what happens. (Penny starts eating as Leonard checks his phone).
Leonard: Oh, crap, it is our anniversary.
Penny: (Her mouth covered in chocolate cake) Happy anniversary!

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Anyway, I'm proud of you. And I'm going to try to do a better job of sharing the spotlight because we're a team. You know? Much like the Dodgers. If they had superpowers, and fought crime. And Thor was in them.

Stephen Hawking: Are you sitting in a bathroom?
Sheldon: Yes. I needed a place to storm off to and it was all that was available.
Stephen Hawking: Fine. But if I hear a flush, this conversation is over.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: It's like having Optimus Prime over to dinner and not asking him to turn into a truck.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Stephen Hawking is a genius. If he said 'no,' I wasn't going to waste time on her father.

Quote from Sheldon

Amy: Sheldon, I know this isn't easy, but you'll have a whole lifetime to practice.
Sheldon: It could take that long, I'm really bad at it.

Quote from Leonard

Leonard: So, how are you guys doing with all the new events in your womb?

Quote from Sheldon

Amy: But you did ask my father?
Sheldon: I did. He said yes. Although, not in a robot voice, so it wasn't nearly as cool.

Quote from Mrs. Wolowitz

Mary Cooper: Lord, thank you. Even though you can do anything, that was mighty impressive.

Quote from Howard

Howard: Well, congratulations. I'm so happy for you two. Hold on, I have to tell Bernadette. Hey, Bernie, guess what? Sheldon and Amy got engaged. Can you believe it?
Bernadette: (In the bathroom with a pregnancy test) Oh, my God. I cannot believe it.
Howard: She's so happy I think she's crying.

Quote from Penny

Penny: Do you think Sheldon's gonna want some weird Star Trek wedding?
Bernadette: I don't know.
Penny: Well, Leonard could barely finish the words "Doctor Who wedding cake" before I shut that down hard.

Quote from Penny

Penny: Is everything okay?
Bernadette: Look, I'm gonna tell you something, but you can't freak out, because I'm already freaking out.
Penny: Oh, my God, what is it?
Bernadette: I'm pregnant again.
Penny: (excitedly) Wha-? ... (quietly) Interesting.

Quote from Penny

Penny: Okay, look, look, this is a good thing. Halley's gonna have a little brother or sister to play with.
Bernadette: I guess that would be pretty cute.
Penny: And, you, know, I was a surprise to my parents, and my dad said it was the best thing that ever happened to them.
Bernadette: Okay. Maybe this baby actually is a blessing.
Penny: Oh, my God, honey, of course it is.
Bernadette: (exhales) How am I pregnant again?
Penny: Yeah, what were you thinking?

Quote from Sheldon

Amy: Why don't you stay a few extra days?
Sheldon: Well, I don't have any other clothes.
Amy: We'll get you some.
Sheldon: Oh, I don't know, I'm pretty particular.
Amy: Well, there's a comic book store less than a mile from here.
Sheldon: Perfect, let's go shopping.

Quote from Sheldon

Amy: Oh, um, and I'm having dinner with some colleagues tonight. I'm sure they'd love to meet you. Come on, what do you say?
Sheldon: Aw, you're nagging me. It's like we're already married.
Amy: Is that a yes or a no?
Sheldon: Geez, save some for the honeymoon.

Quote from Howard

Howard: Hey. Want me to make dinner?
Bernadette: Uh, sure, but first, why don't you have a seat? There's something I need to show you.
Howard: Ooh, if it's how to make dinner, that'd be great.

Quote from Amy

Amy: This is my fiance, Dr. Sheldon Cooper. That's the first time I've said that and it kind of gave me the goose bumps.

Quote from Sheldon

Dr. Zane: I'm sorry, I'm sure you don't want to sit here and listen to a bunch of work talk.
Sheldon: Oh, no, I love it. No, but let's talk about work. Amy's work, my work. Yeah, why don't we start with my work?

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: You know, no offense, but your colleagues were pretty rude.
Amy: Really, they were rude?
Sheldon: Yes. They just kept talking about you and how great you are, no matter how many times I brought me up.

Quote from Sheldon

Amy: You know what, Sheldon? You're not always the smartest person in every room. You may not even be the smartest person in this room.
Sheldon: Oh, I am sorry. What, is Neil deGrasse Tyson hiding behind the couch? 'Cause if he is, he's not that smart, it's pretty dusty back there.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Hey, where are you going?
Amy: I'm storming off to my room.
Sheldon: Well, then where am I supposed to storm off to?
Amy: Well, you're so smart, why don't you figure it out? (door closes)
Sheldon: Is there another bedroom? Perhaps a-a den?

Quote from Howard

Bernadette: Obviously, it was a surprise. There was some crying and some yelling.
Howard: Some suggestion of make-up sex that did not go over well, even though it's not like we can get more pregnant.

Quote from Leonard

Bernadette: Do it! Have a baby, do it!
Howard: Come on, it'd be so cute, our kids playing together? What do you say, why don't you two hit the old mattress and whip up a family?
Penny: Okay, we're not gonna have a baby just to make you guys feel better.
Leonard: Yeah, if we're gonna have a baby it's gonna be when we are ready, or when I'm certain Penny is gonna leave me.
Penny: Exactly.

Quote from Stuart

Raj: They're my friends, and I should be happy for them. And I'm trying, but all I feel is this gnawing, empty sensation in my gut.
Stuart: I had that once. Turned out it was a tapeworm.
Raj: Cool.

Quote from Amy

Sheldon: Amy, there's something I need to say to you.
Amy: I'm listening.
Sheldon: I've been thinking about the Avengers.
Amy: I believe that. But I don't think that's something you needed to say to me.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: You know, maybe, um, I should start right now, and go back to Pasadena and let you have this experience to yourself.
Amy: You just want to go back 'cause that's where everybody makes a fuss over you.
Sheldon: You know, your colleagues are right, you are brilliant.

Quote from Sheldon

Howard: Oh, let me see the ring.
Leonard: Ooh, nice.
Sheldon: Hey, her eyes are up there.

Quote from Raj

Raj: This is going to be the biggest smackdown since my Aunt Noopur showed up at the family reunion wearing the same sari as my cousin Sruti.

Quote from Amy

Amy: Dr. Nowitzki?
Ramona Nowitzki: Oh. Dr. Fowler. Um, hello.
Amy: Thank you. Thank you so much.
