Episode Quotes

Sheldon Cooper: [speaking via a computer] We are out of herbal tea. Do you have any?
Penny: Hold on, I'll go check.
Sheldon Cooper: Some hiney would be nice. [Sheldon realizes his mistake right away]
Penny: [offended] Hiney?
Sheldon Cooper: [retypes] Honey.
Stephanie Barnett: I don't see anything at all, Sheldon.
Sheldon Cooper: Fuuh! You're the doctor, but I'm constantly hearing this annoying sound.
Leonard Hofstadter: Me, too.
Sheldon Cooper: Is it a high-frequency whistle?
Leonard Hofstadter: No, it's more of a relentless narcissistic drone.
Stephanie Barnett: Yep, there's no inflammation at all, Sheldon.
Sheldon Cooper: Then it must be a tumor.
Howard Wolowitz: There's a whole buffet of women out there, and you're just standing in the corner, eating the same deviled egg over and over again.
Leonard Hofstadter: At least I have an egg. What do you have?
Howard Wolowitz: A veritable smorgasbord of potential sexual partners. See the blonde over there? I can hit on her and you can't.
Leonard Hofstadter: So go hit on her.
Howard Wolowitz: [after an awkward pause] She's not my type.
Rajesh Koothrappali: Too bad, 'cause she was checking you out before.
Howard Wolowitz: She was?
Rajesh Koothrappali: Of course not. Look at her.

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

  • 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".
  • Title reference: The name of boys' third-floor neighbor (Mrs. Vartabedian) who's mentioned in passing.
  • 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.
  • The label on Howard's Dr. Pepper can has been altered to "Dr. Peeper."
