Episode Quotes

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.
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.
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.

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

  • Howard is drinking 7up at lunch, but the can is turned so no one can see the label clearly.
  • 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.
  • The label on Howard's Dr. Pepper can has been altered to "Dr. Peeper."
