Episode Quotes

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.
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: 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

  • 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".
  • At the beginning of the episode, Sheldon is shown wearing a T-shirt that features several instances of an impossible object known as the "Blivet" or "Devil's Tuning Fork".
  • Howard is drinking 7up at lunch, but the can is turned so no one can see the label clearly.
  • 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."
