The Big Bang Theory

Leonard and Sheldon are brilliant physicists, the kind of "beautiful minds" that understand how the universe works. But none of that genius helps them interact with people, especially women. All this begins to change when a free-spirited beauty named Penny moves in next door.

Character Bio

Bernadette Rostenkowski photo
Bernadette is a waitress paying her way through graduate school microbiology studies and was introduced to Howard via Penny. At first she and Howard did not get along, as they appeared to have nothing in common. However, when they found out they both had overbearing mothers they immediately felt a connection. Subsequently, Howard realized Bernadette was a real opportunity to develop a lasting relationship, and in an impulsive manner he proposed to her. Although Bernadette rejected his offer, they remained a couple.

09x18 - The Application Deterioration Season 9 / Episode 18: - The Application Deterioration

Howard Wolowitz: What's to think about? We have an invention and want to move forward.
Bernadette Rostenkowski: Howie, you are about to form a legal partnership with Sheldon Cooper.
Howard Wolowitz: All right, if you are going to calmly make excellent points, then I don't know if I want to talk to you. OK, I get it, and it's sweet that you're worried about me, but I can take care of myself.
Bernadette Rostenkowski: I'm not worried about you; I'm worried about me. I don't want to go through this pregnancy listening to you complain about Sheldon driving you crazy more than you already do.
Howard Wolowitz: Here we go with the ironclad logic again.
Bernadette Rostenkowski: You've had to work with him before; it hasn't gone well. Why is this time going to be any different?
Howard Wolowitz: Is the fetus helping you? cause that's cheating.
