Episode Quotes

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.
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.
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.

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.
  • 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".
  • 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.
  • 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.
