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

Sheldon Cooper photo
Name: Dr. Sheldon Cooper MSc, PhD.
Occupation: Theoretical physicist.
IQ: 187.
From: Texas.

Sheldon is the uber geek, he possesses a Master's degree and 2 PhDs, and conducts string theory research at Caltech. He shares an apartment with Leonard.

Unashamedly geeky, he has no qualms about speaking Klingon, he doesn't mind sharing details of his life that others might find embarrassing, such as a common activity being Klingon Boggle until the wee hours. He wears vintage t-shirts sporting superhero logos.

As a child prodigy, Sheldon was involved in numerous experiments as a child, such as his plan to provide free electricity for his town by building a nuclear reactor. A plan stopped only by government pen pushers claiming it's illegal to store yellow cake uranium in a garden shed! Sheldon started college at the age of 11, receiving his first PhD at 16.

While he might claim to be the perfect human specimen, Sheldon does have his faults - although he'd never admit it! He lacks empathy, is unable to discern sarcasm, doesn't like change, and has an inflated ego. He does not understand social norms, and makes little attempt to do so.

Sheldon Quotes:
"Looking into the blank, innocent eyes of a creature that couldn't begin to comprehend anything I was saying ... basically another day at the office."


"I've seen things. Lady things."


"Did you hear that? A mop! I've got two PHDs yet somehow I'm the janitor of my sister's birth canal."


"I never told you about my brother's kidney stones. Do you want hear about everything that comes out of my family's genitals?"


"How could you not like getting attention for playing Wesley Crusher? You were wonderful. A know-it all boy genius with an eidetic memory. Who couldn't relate to that?"


"Yes, that's right, Sheldon Cooper. He was bitten by his neighbor's dog, leading to his first scientific break through: the Doggy Death Ray. Which sadly he couldn't build because Santa wouldn't bring him enriched uranium."


"Scissors cuts paper, paper covers rock, rock crushes lizard, lizard poisons Spock, Spock smashes scissors, scissors decapitates lizard, lizard eats paper, paper disproves Spock, Spock vaporizes rock, and as it always has, rock crushes scissors."
