Penny: Hi, you guys ready to order?
Sheldon Cooper: [the gang mutters consent] Sure.
Penny: 'Kay. Priya?
Priya Koothrappali: I'll have the Shepherd's pie.


Priya Koothrappali: You want to split that with me?
Penny: Oh, no, no, no, he doesn't.
Priya Koothrappali: Why not?
Penny: Well, you know, milk in the taters, milk in the gravy, parmesan crust... your lactose-intolerant boyfriend will turn into a gas-filled Macy's day balloon.
04x23 - The Engagement Reaction Season 4 / Episode 23: - The Engagement Reaction

Howard Wolowitz: Mom also had just gotten some news that might've upset her.
Bernadette Rostenkowski: What?
Howard Wolowitz: It's not important.
Bernadette Rostenkowski: Come on, Howard, I'm going to be your wife. You can share anything with me.
Howard Wolowitz: Oh, you'd think that, but no.
Bernadette Rostenkowski: You told her we were going to get married and she had a heart attack?
Howard Wolowitz: You can't take that personally.
Penny: How else is she supposed to take it?
Howard Wolowitz: What you've gotta keep in mind is that ever since my dad left, I've been the whole world to my mother. I mean, she'd be threatened by any woman who can give me what she can't.
Bernadette Rostenkowski: You mean sexual intercourse?
Howard Wolowitz: Well, when you say it like that, you make it sound creepy.


Priya Koothrappali: What happened?
Bernadette Rostenkowski: Howard's mother had a heart attack because I have sex with him and she can't!
04x23 - The Engagement Reaction Season 4 / Episode 23: - The Engagement Reaction

Priya Koothrappali: It's nice of you to show up for Howard
Penny: Howard is my friend [ she giggles]
Priya Koothrappali: Did I miss something?
Penny: Howard Wolowitz is my friend, you know one time he tried to stick his tongue down my throat and I broke his nose?
Priya Koothrappali: That's easier to believe than he's your friend
04x23 - The Engagement Reaction Season 4 / Episode 23: - The Engagement Reaction

Leonard Hofstadter: What took you guys so long?
Priya Koothrappali: Oh, we were just chatting.
Leonard Hofstadter: That's nice. What about?
Penny: We were just comparing notes about how you are in the sack.


Leonard Hofstadter: [uncomfortable] That's funny.
Penny: Yeah.
Raj Koothrappali: [after Penny and Priya walk to their seats] What if she wasn't kidding?
Leonard Hofstadter: Doesn't matter. I'm the king of foreplay.
04x23 - The Engagement Reaction Season 4 / Episode 23: - The Engagement Reaction

Leonard Hofstadter: What did your mother say when you told her you were getting married?
Bernadette Rostenkowski: He hasn't told her yet; he's waiting for the right time.
Howard Wolowitz: Yeah, I was thinking of weaving it into her eulogy.
Priya Koothrappali: Howard, you've got to tell your mother!
Howard Wolowitz: [about Leonard] Hey, have you told your parents you're dating this short glass of skim milk yet?
Priya Koothrappali: Uh, that's different. First of all, we're not engaged. And second, Indian parents are very protective of their children.
Howard Wolowitz: Right, right. Whereas Jewish mothers take a casual la-di-da approach to their sons.
04x23 - The Engagement Reaction Season 4 / Episode 23: - The Engagement Reaction

Priya Koothrappali: You know, my brother had a group of friends like this in India. They dressed up in leotards and goggles and called themselves 'The New Delhi Power Rangers'.
Penny: You mean when he was little.
Priya Koothrappali: Not as little as you'd want him to be.
04x21 - The Agreement Dissection Season 4 / Episode 21: - The Agreement Dissection

Leonard Hofstadter: [as Sheldon counts down the "self destruct sequence"] It's blackmail!
Priya Koothrappali: We give up.
Leonard Hofstadter: This is ridiculous.


Sheldon Cooper: It's a laptop with a full charge. Honestly, what do you see in him?
04x20 - The Herb Garden Germination Season 4 / Episode 20: - The Herb Garden Germination

Priya Koothrappali: [about Raj] I found poems he wrote about her. Very disturbing. "Oh Bernadette, please play my clarinet."
Leonard: Oh. That's hard to believe.
Priya Koothrappali: Yes. And for years everyone in my family was convinced he was the... clarinet enthusiast.
04x20 - The Herb Garden Germination Season 4 / Episode 20: - The Herb Garden Germination

Priya Koothrappali: By the way, a fellow at work said I could use his Dodger tickets this weekend. Does that sound like fun?
Leonard: Well, yeah! Dodgers are baseball, right?
Priya Koothrappali: You need to explain the game to me.
Leonard: Mmm, it's complicated, but as I remember it the essentials are get chosen last, get hit by the ball, cry, go home.
04x20 - The Herb Garden Germination Season 4 / Episode 20: - The Herb Garden Germination

Howard Wolowitz: Thank you. Bernadette Maryann Rostenkowski...
Bernadette Rostenkowski: Oh, God. What's happening?
Howard Wolowitz: I know things haven't been perfect with us, and we've had our problems, but I just have to tell you, from the moment I...
Bernadette Rostenkowski: Howard, let me just stop you right here.
Raj Koothrappali: This is it.
Bernadette Rostenkowski: Yes.
Howard Wolowitz: Yes, what?

Leonard: Congratulations!
Priya Koothrappali: Oh, it's so exciting.
04x19 - The Zarnecki Incursion Season 4 / Episode 19: - The Zarnecki Incursion

Priya Koothrappali: Leonard, you're busy; let's talk tomorrow.
Leonard Hofstadter: Oh, wait. Hang on; are you upset?
Priya Koothrappali: No, no, I think it's sexy to date a boy trapped in a man's body.
Leonard Hofstadter: Good, good, I'll tell you what happened. [Priya leaves]
Sheldon Cooper: [to Howard] People think *I* don't get sarcasm.
04x19 - The Zarnecki Incursion Season 4 / Episode 19: - The Zarnecki Incursion

Penny: All right. Well, great seeing you.
Priya Koothrappali: Yeah, you too. [Priya goes into Leonard's apartment]

04x19 - The Zarnecki Incursion Season 4 / Episode 19: - The Zarnecki Incursion

Priya Koothrappali: [Priya meets Penny as Penny leaves Leonard's apartment] Oh, hello.
Penny: Oh, hi. I was just dropping off a cheesecake to Sheldon. He was robbed of a bunch of imaginary crap that's useful in an make-believe place.
Priya Koothrappali: I don't know what that means.
Penny: Yeah, well, sadly, I do.
04x18 - The Prestidigitation Approximation Season 4 / Episode 18: - The Prestidigitation Approximation

Leonard Hofstadter: Last night, me wanting to try that stuff out of the Kama Sutra... was that fun for you, or kind of racially insensitive?
Priya Koothrappali: Yeah, just because you're in bed with an Indian woman, you think that gives you permission to use crazy positions from an ancient Indian love manual?
Leonard Hofstadter: Hey, if you can find a book called "Weird Sex With White Boys", I'd be okay with that.
04x18 - The Prestidigitation Approximation Season 4 / Episode 18: - The Prestidigitation Approximation

Leonard Hofstadter: Penny and I are just friends.
Priya Koothrappali: I don't care. This is a woman you have slept with. If you want her around, then I have to wonder if maybe you're not ready to move on.
Leonard Hofstadter: No, no, no, I'm ready. I gave up the gift of sight for you! If that's not moving on, what is?
04x16 - The Cohabitation Formulation Season 4 / Episode 16: - The Cohabitation Formulation

Priya Koothrappali: So, Penny, Leonard tells me you're an actress. That must be pretty exciting.
Penny: Oh, yeah, yes, real great. Today I drove to Van Nuys for an audition I thought was going to be for a cat-food commercial. It turned out to be porn.
Sheldon Cooper: Did you get the part?
Penny: I didn't do the audition!
Sheldon Cooper: Given the state of your career, can you really afford to be picky?
04x16 - The Cohabitation Formulation Season 4 / Episode 16: - The Cohabitation Formulation

Priya Koothrappali: Rajesh, Leonard and I have decided to see each other again, and you don't get to tell me who I can or can't have a relationship with.
Sheldon Cooper: Actually, he can. The Hindu code of Manu is very clear in these matters. If a woman's father is not around, the duty of controlling her base desires falls to the closest male member of her family, in this case, Raj. The code also states that if she disobeys, she will be reborn in the womb of a jackal and tormented by diseases. If true, that seems like an awfully large gamble, given that the prize is Leonard.
04x06 - The Irish Pub Formulation Season 4 / Episode 6: - The Irish Pub Formulation

Priya Koothrappali: Leonard, wake up.
Leonard Hofstadter: Huh? What? Uh, sorry.
Priya Koothrappali: For what?
Leonard Hofstadter: I don't know. When I'm in bed with a girl, it's my go-to response.
04x06 - The Irish Pub Formulation Season 4 / Episode 6: - The Irish Pub Formulation

Priya Koothrappali: I could never bring a white boy home to my parents. They'd have a cow - which is a much bigger deal in India.
