Episode Quotes

Penny: Come on, Leonard, you are entitled to try and make things go the way you want them to!
Leonard Hofstadter: Really?
Penny: Yes! You don't always have to go along with what the woman wishes.
Leonard Hofstadter: Huh.
Penny: What?
Leonard Hofstadter: Nothing. Just rethinking my whole life.
Leonard Hofstadter: Don't you think if a woman was living with me that I'd be the first one to know about it?
Penny: Oh, sweetie, you'd be the last one to know about it.
Penny: Out of coffee. Need coffee.
Stephanie Barnett: Uh, hello.
Penny: Hi! Stephanie, right?
Stephanie Barnett: Uh-huh. And, and, and you are?
Penny: I'm Penny, I live across the hall. I've heard a lot about you.
Stephanie Barnett: Really?
Penny: Mm-hmm.
Stephanie Barnett: I haven't heard a thing about you. Leonard? Why haven't I heard a thing about this woman who lives across the hall and comes into your apartment in the morning in her underwear?
Leonard Hofstadter: She's heard about you because we're, you know, involved and you haven't heard about her because... I never slept with her, I swear!

Mistakes/Goofs

  • Goof (continuity error): When Penny and Leonard talk while folding towels, she folds a pink hand towel. In the next shot the towel is partially unfolded.
  • Goof (continuity error): Just after the opening sequence Leonard is preparing dough. You can see him spilling a lot of it on to the table, but in the next take there is only a tiny stain instead.

Trivia

  • Title reference: The name of boys' third-floor neighbor (Mrs. Vartabedian) who's mentioned in passing.
  • Sheldon complains to Stephanie that he can hear a note playing inside his head with a constant pitch of the C above middle C. He then sings this note. Allowing for the fact that he sings a little bit flat, the note is indeed C above middle C, thereby showing that Sheldon has perfect pitch.
  • Stephanie is the second person that Leonard has slept with in the series after Leslie Winkle.
  • This episode marks the last appearance of Stephanie Barnett.
  • Leonard tells Sheldon, "I initialed another clause naming you my sidekick in case I get superpowers." in the Roommate Agreement. Similarly, Howard and Raj argued over the same thing in "The Alien Parasite Hypothesis".
