Episode Quotes

Sheldon Cooper: Can you read them back?
Amy Farrah Fowler: Revised ground rule number one: we are on the same team but it *is* a competition.
Sheldon Cooper: Excellent, excellent. And on a related point, you're going down, punk.
Amy Farrah Fowler: Revised ground rule number two: there are definitely stupid questions, and those who ask them can be told so right to their *stupid* face.
Sheldon Cooper: I love that one.
Amy Farrah Fowler: Thanks, babe. Number three: fair topics for insult include educational pedigree, scientific field, intellectual prowess, and mommas.
Sheldon Cooper: That list is *strong*. Like your mother's urge to be promiscuous with sailors.
Amy Farrah Fowler: I had a feeling you were using the wrong computational model, but I didn't say anything 'cause you're so sensitive!
Sheldon Cooper: Just because I'm easily bothered by light, heat, sound, smell and the way birds look at me does not mean I'm sensitive!
Amy Farrah Fowler: We're finally making progress. I wish we could do it without fighting.
Sheldon Cooper: What if the fighting is the reason we're making progress?
Amy Farrah Fowler: I suppose it's conceivable that the hormones associated with our fight or flight response could be sharpening our cognitive processes.

Mistakes/Goofs

  • Goof (revealing mistake): Penny's apartment, where Sheldon and Amy are now living, is on the 4th floor of the building, same as Leonard's apartment, but the view outside the one window suggests they couldn't be higher than the second floor.
  • Goof (factual errors): Amy, a biochemist with a background in brain function says, about their finally making progress but only while fighting: "I suppose it's conceivable that the hormones associated with our fight or flight response could be sharpening our cognitive processes." She is 180 degrees off, for, and here is the actual science: Norepinephrine is the first neurotransmitter to trigger a protective state when we are under attack, which cascades a rush of "fight or flight" chemicals such as adrenaline, noradrenaline and cortisol, normally associated with survival. In this defensive state, the primitive part of the brain interferes with rational thinking and the limbic system knocks out most of the working memory, physically causing narrow-mindedness. Those hormones would do the exact opposite and shut down any possible progress.
  • Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): Amy pronounces the last syllable in the word "processes" "eez" rather than a short "e." If the word were Greek, then her pronunciation would be correct.
  • Goof (revealing mistake): The gear shift lever of Howard and Bernadette's minivan is clearly in Park as they are driving down the road.
