Leonard Hofstadter: What's going on?
Bernadette Rostenkowski: I just performed a Sheldonectomy.
Leonard Hofstadter: Careful, if you don't get it all it'll only come back worse.

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.
