Episode Quotes

Howard Wolowitz: [Sheldon is holding a Klingon Bat'leth] Why did you bring that?
Sheldon Cooper: No weapon strikes more fear into a man's heart than a Klingon bat'leth.
Leonard Hofstadter: OK, let's get clear on something. We're just gonna tell this guy to transfer all of your stuff back into your account and then be on our way. No one's "batlething" anybody.
Sheldon Cooper: So my blade shall not taste blood tonight?
Leonard Hofstadter: No.
Sheldon Cooper: Well, now I just feel silly holding it.
Sheldon Cooper: It is time to cry havoc and let slip the dogs of war!
Leonard Hofstadter: I'm on it. [pulls out cell phone and dials] Hi, Mrs. Wolowitz, is Howard there? Okay, thanks. [hangs up] That particular dog of war will have to call you back after his bath.
Sheldon Cooper: Stale pastry is hollow succor to a man who is bereft of ostrich.


  • In the opening scene, Sheldon refers to his imaginary ostrich as "the only bird I ever loved!" In the fifth season episode "The Big Bang Theory" (2007) {The Ornithophobia Diffusion (#5.9)}, it is established that Sheldon is ornithophobic, and he overcomes this by making friends with a real live bird.
  • This EP is actually based on activity of many people who mined gold for one person, on games like WOW, this game gold would be used to purchase hard to get items. Blizzard reported this activity on their site.
  • The title refers to the hacker who breaks into Sheldon's computer and steals equipment from his World or Warcraft account.
  • In the opening scene, in which Sheldon discovers his account has been hacked, he says "It is time to cry havoc and let slip the dogs of war!" He's quoting Marcus Antonius in Shakespeare's Julius Caesar, who is preparing to strike back at Caesar's assassins. It is also quoted by General Chang in Star Trek: The Undiscovered Country.
