Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Instead of being in charge, I can be the vocal opposition, criticizing and badgering the president at every turn.
Amy: I think you'll be really good at that.
Sheldon: Me, too.
Leonard: I think I made a huge mistake.
Penny: Me, too.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: I can smell that food truck from up here.
Amy: Just close the window if you don't like the smell.
Sheldon: Of course I like the smell. It's salt and fat. My brain may be evolved, but my tongue still wants to pick up a club and drag that truck back to my cave.

Quote from Leonard

Penny: The pastrami truck moved.
Leonard: That is the danger of a restaurant on wheels.

Quote from Sheldon

Penny: So, let me get this straight. You are the president of the tenants association?
Sheldon: President, only member, and harshest critic. I once gave myself an official reprimand for conducting a meeting in the shower. The steam warped my gavel.

Quote from Amy

Sheldon: Uh, uh, hold on. Hold on. First, we have to read the minutes from last month's meeting. Amy, would you do the honors?
Amy: Why not? "Saturday, March 3rd.
7:05, meeting called to order.
7:06, president gets shampoo in eye.
7:07, meeting adjourned."

Quote from Amy

Amy: I don't want to be in the middle of this. No matter which way I vote, I'm either a bad friend, a bad fiancée, or an ungrateful recipient of a battery.
Sheldon: Next time I have a meeting in the shower, you're welcome to attend.
Amy: Sheldon. Sheldon for president. I pick Sheldon!

Quote from Leonard

Amy: Now, if you'll excuse me, told Sheldon I was going to the market, so I'm taking some of your stuff. [raids the fridge] I was never here.
Leonard: Sometimes you don't see it 'cause she's next to Sheldon, but she's pretty weird.

Quote from Amy

Leonard: So, looks like we need to figure out who the new president should be. I nominate myself.
Penny: I second it.
Amy: Huh. Well, as a woman in love, I want to stand by my man. Too bad that's been rendered bureaucratically impossible.

Quote from Sheldon

Amy: Sheldon, it's the American way, the peaceful transfer of power.
Sheldon: I don't know.
Leonard: Think about Ant-Man.
Sheldon: I'm always thinking about Ant-Man.
Leonard: Michael Douglas had the suit and then he passed it on to Paul Rudd.
Sheldon: Maybe you're right.
Amy: Really? The Ant-Man thing? That's what won you over?
Sheldon: Yes. He got the details right. That's how you use a superhero.

Quote from Amy

Amy: I'm sorry, Sheldon, but with minimal power comes minimal responsibility. And you couldn't handle it.

Quote from Penny

Sheldon: I'm sorry, I think you're forgetting that the sandwich was invented by John Montagu, the Earl of Sandwich.
Penny: Oh. The truck's called "Pearl of Sandwich." Now I get it.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: No, it's a distraction. How can I focus on my work when all I can think about is how much I want that sandwich?
Amy: So, go get one.
Sheldon: I can't just give in to every urge I have when I have it. That's why I have a rigid schedule. It's bad enough I had to give in to my urge to create a rigid schedule.

Quote from Leonard

Penny: No, apparently someone complained to the tenants association, and they're not allowed to park on our street anymore.
Leonard: Who would complain about something that everyone loves? Oh.

Quote from Sheldon

Leonard: Did you complain to the tenants association about the food truck?
Sheldon: Yes.
Penny: And they actually took you seriously?
Sheldon: Oh, the tenants association takes every complaint seriously.
Penny: Oh, great, because I'm about to send them an e-mail complaining about you.
Sheldon: (phone chimes) Excuse me. Wow, someone should have spell-checked.

Quote from Bernadette

Raj: Oh, oh! Let's play William Tell. I'll put this bowl on my head. See if you can knock it off without hitting me.
Howard: You read my mind.
Bernadette: What are you doing?
Howard: Either breaking a bowl or breaking Raj's head.
Bernadette: Be careful, they don't make that bowl anymore.

Quote from Sheldon

Penny: Okay, so when I got a fine for leaving my clothes in the dryer for too long, that was from you?
Sheldon: $14.99. The exact price of a new gavel.

Quote from Sheldon

Leonard: And the noise complaint we got for singing you"Happy Birthday"?
Sheldon: As a friend, I was touched. As a representative of the building, I thought that you should pick a key and stick with it.

Quote from Sheldon

Amy: Why didn't you tell me?
Sheldon: 'Cause I wanted to make sure that you loved the man, not the office.

Quote from Sheldon

Leonard: You can't just declare yourself president.
Sheldon: I didn't. I called a meeting, I was the only one to attend. I nominated myself, and after a pretty moving speech, I voted myself in.

Quote from Leonard

Sheldon: Not so fast. I believe we have one tenant here who has not made her voice heard.
Amy: Oh.
Sheldon: We're waiting, fiancée.
Penny: Yeah, we're waiting, best friend.
Leonard: Yeah, we're waiting, neighbor who needed a battery and totally got one from me, no strings attached.

Quote from Leonard

Penny: Ugh, I can't believe my best friend sided with Sheldon.
Leonard: Can't believe my best friend is Sheldon.

Quote from Amy

Penny: What?
Amy: Don't be mad at me. I mean, I can't vote against him.
Leonard: Even when he's being crazy?
Amy: Well, what other times are there?!

Quote from Howard

Howard: But this time-
Stuart: It was me. Yeah. I was trying out a flirty new smile.
Howard: Now, I don't use the word "ghoulish" a lot, but I-I just can't think of another word.

Quote from Sheldon

Amy: Hi. What are you doing?
Sheldon: Leonard and Penny are trying to turn the tenants against me, so they are about to see just what kind of power the president of the tenants association wields.
Amy: "You must be at least this tall to use washing machine"?
Sheldon: I'm gonna hang it up higher than Leonard. And then his clothes will smell. And nobody's voting for a man with smelly clothes. No, not when there's a perfectly unscented incumbent on the ballot.

Quote from Amy

Leonard: Hey, Sheldon. We found something pretty interesting.
Amy: Huh. Well, that is surprising. I, for one, have no idea what they're talking about.
Leonard: Turns out, when Amy took over Penny's apartment, she was put on the lease, not you.
Penny: Yeah, and when I moved across the hall, you got taken off the lease and I got added.
Amy: Well, what are you saying? That Sheldon's not technically a tenant at all and therefore, has no standing to be president of the tenants association no matter who votes for him? I don't know how you found that out, but I am guessing all on your own.

Quote from Amy

Amy: It's not your fault. I mean, what man wouldn't be seduced by the power to decide how late the laundry room stays open?
Penny: Wait, you're the reason I had to come back and get my jeans the next morning?
Sheldon: I can't believe you expect me to give that up.

Quote from Howard

Howard: Can't believe you got her number.
Raj: I know, right? How amazing would it be if this worked out and the story of how I met my wife started with you and me in the hot tub together.
Howard: Well, do us both a favor and start the story later.

Quote from Raj

Raj: You're like Grey's Anatomy for robots. Also, why isn't that a show?

Quote from Bernadette

Bernadette: Aren't you worried there's some kid out there missing his drone?
Raj: Oh, please. This is not a children's toy. This thing's got an HD camera on it.
Bernadette: Aren't you worried that there's some rich peeping tom out there missing his drone?

Quote from Penny

Leonard: Hey. What you got there?
Penny: Oh, I grabbed a sandwich at the food truck out front.
Sheldon: Wait, n-now, hold on. Tonight is Friday, and I believe you know what that means.
Penny: That my fun, young life took a drastic turn somewhere?
Sheldon: No.
Leonard: But yeah.

Quote from Howard

Sheldon: No, that means it's Chinese food night.
Penny: Yeah, and you have Chinese food. So eat it.
Sheldon: But I can smell your pastrami.
Howard: And we can all hear your complaining, so no one's happy.

Quote from Raj

Sheldon: What is happening? Everybody's supposed to be eating Chinese food.
Amy: Well, actually, I believe the Chinese may have invented the sandwich. Their dish "rou jia moâ" literally means "meat between bread." So, it looks like all of us, including Penny, are eating Chinese food.
Raj: Except for you, Sheldon. You're eating crow.

Quote from Bernadette

Amy: And I think you're forgetting that there are written documents of meat between bread being eaten in China during the Tang dynasty.
Bernadette: (to Howard) You know what, I'll go with you. And then maybe we just go home.

Quote from Amy

Sheldon: Hmm. Well, maybe the Chinese did invent the sandwich. I guess you were right.
Amy: Too bad no one's around to hear it.

Quote from Amy

Amy: So, there's something you like, but it's also driving you crazy. Been there, doing it now.

Quote from Amy

Amy: You know, why don't I just go down to the food truck and ask them to move?
Sheldon: Why are you taking cash?
Amy: No reason.

Quote from Raj

Raj: Hey, Howard, look. What's that?
Howard: Huh. Looks like someone's drone.
Raj: Oh, no. Do you think it was spying on us in the hot tub? 'Cause I'm only 40% of the way to my beach bod.

Quote from Sheldon

Penny: What is going on here?
Leonard: You're the tenants association?
Sheldon: (laughs) You should see the look on your face. You might want to tell your wife that there's no "Y" in "pastrami".

Quote from Amy

Penny: Do you know he is the entire tenants association?
Amy: No, but I'm not surprised. He's also the pope of a planet he invented in hyperspace.

Quote from Sheldon

Leonard: Well, if you can vote yourself in, then we can vote you out.
Penny: Yeah.
Sheldon: Fine. Make a motion at the next meeting.
Leonard: When is that?
Sheldon: It's the first Saturday of every month. Unless there's an emergency meeting.
Penny: Then we call an emergency meeting.
Sheldon: You really don't have to. This is the first Saturday of the month.

Quote from Penny

Leonard: Ah, I should've taken that gavel and shoved it right down his throat.
Penny: Ugh. I would've gone the other way, but it would've gotten to his throat.

Quote from Penny

Penny: So you just let him get away with anything?
Amy: Well, not anything. But honestly, pastrami sandwich is not the hill I want to die on.
Penny: It's not about the sandwich. It's about the principle.
Leonard: Yeah, principle. And a little bit sandwich.
Penny: Yeah.

Quote from Bernadette

Raj: I hope there's nothing disturbing on there.
Bernadette: Like you two in a hot tub?

Quote from Raj

Raj: Oh, that's plenty to go on. We can't give up. We got to find her.
Bernadette: You just want to find her 'cause she's cute.
Raj: Not just because she's cute. She also owns a pretty expensive drone, which means she has money and doesn't mind wasting it. And I I like that in a woman.

Quote from Howard

Howard: Do you see anything that could help us locate her?
Bernadette: Hmm, let me have a look.
Howard: She's got eagle eyes, always spotting continuity errors in movies. (chuckles) It's not annoying at all.

Quote from Stuart

Howard: Do you know who she is?
Stuart: Oh, sure, yeah. That's Cynthia.
Raj: Wha s-so, she's a customer?
Stuart: Yeah, yeah, but I-I haven't seen her in a while. And before you say anything, there is a lot of reasons women stop coming here. It's not just me.

Quote from Stuart

Stuart: A little tip. Uh, stick with the smiles you know.

Quote from Sheldon

Amy: Sheldon, I have an advanced degree in the study of the human brain, so if my fiancé is a raving lunatic, it's kind of a ding on my reputation.
Sheldon: If leaders just stepped aside every time they didn't have the consent of the governed, what would we have?
Amy: Democracy.
Sheldon: Not on my watch.

Quote from Howard

Raj: Oh, this is the life. What could be better than this?
Howard: If you weren't wearing one of my swimsuits.
Raj: I'll give it back.
Howard: (chuckles) You know the rule. Once it touches hiney, it's no longer miney.

Quote from Raj

Raj: We should name it.
Howard: The drone, or your stupid robot show?
Raj: The drone. The show's already got a name, General Bot-spital.

Quote from Leonard

Sheldon: Why are you wearing a Band-Aid?
Raj: Halley bit me.
Leonard: (laughs) You got beaten up by a girl.
Howard: Hey, that's sexist.
Leonard: You're right. (laughs) You got beaten up by a baby.
