Episode Quotes

Leonard Hofstadter: Maybe it's'a residual bacterial infection from getting toilet swirlies.
Sheldon Cooper: It is possible. I got a lot of those. Even at church.
Stephanie Barnett: If it's from a swirlie, I have something for that. Circle, circle, dot, dot, now you've got a cootie shot.
Penny: [proving to Leonard that Stephanie has moved in with him] Hmm... Cute dresses. I bet this looks great on you.
Leonard Hofstadter: We're not living together.
Penny: Okay. Hmm... Scented candles, fuzzy slippers. Ooh, floral bed sheets.
Leonard Hofstadter: We're not living together!
Penny: Okay, moving on. Uh, who are these guys at Disney World?
Leonard Hofstadter: Uh... the big dog is Goofy. And... the older couple with the mouse ears, I have no idea.

Leonard Hofstadter: We're not living together!
Penny: You're gonna go down swinging, huh? All right. Well, we've got your body lotion, your "In Style" magazine, your jewelry box.
Leonard Hofstadter: We're not- where's my Bat-Signal?
Penny: You have a Bat-Signal?
Leonard Hofstadter: I did. It was right here. She must have...

Leonard Hofstadter: Oh, my God. We're living together.
Penny: [sarcastically] Really? What was your first clue?
Howard Wolowitz: [Leonard is having difficulty breaking up with Stephanie] Why don't you text her?
Leonard Hofstadter: Isn't that cowardly?
Howard Wolowitz: Oh, yeah. It's beyond contemptible.
Rajesh Koothrappali: But then again, you are wearing a bird sweater.

Mistakes/Goofs

  • 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

  • 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.
  • 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".
  • This episode marks the last appearance of Stephanie Barnett.
  • The label on Howard's Dr. Pepper can has been altered to "Dr. Peeper."
  • Stephannie was never mentioned after this. It was assumed after the text Leonard gave to her which Howard suggested that they broke up. No further information is available to what happened to her.
