Episode Quotes

Sheldon Cooper: [on top of the Santa Monica Ferris wheel] Hey, Los Angeles! I'm on a Ferris wheel with Darth Vader! And he's nicer than you'd think!
James Earl Jones: I am!
Sheldon Cooper: [sneaking up to a house] I don't understand what we're doing.
James Earl Jones: Shhhh!
Sheldon Cooper: Whose house is this?
James Earl Jones: Carrie Fisher. And she's a little crazy, so get ready to run. [he rings the doorbell, and they run for it]
Carrie Fisher: [storms out with a baseball bat] It's not funny anymore, James!
James Earl Jones: Then why am I laughing?
James Earl Jones: [in a steam room] What were you trying to ask me at the strip club?
Sheldon Cooper: Oh. "How much does it cost to get them off my lap?"
James Earl Jones: No, something about a convention.
Sheldon Cooper: Oh, right! Well, my friends and I couldn't get into Comic-Con this year, and I was trying to start my own convention, and I was going to ask if you would be a panelist.
James Earl Jones: Why don't you and your friends come to Comic-Con with me?
Sheldon Cooper: Really?
James Earl Jones: Of course. And San Diego is right across the border from my favorite city on Earth, Tijuana, where I'm taking you every night!
Sheldon Cooper: Ay-yi-yi.
James Earl Jones: Ay-yi-yi-bang-bang!

Mistakes/Goofs

  • Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): On his list of possible guests, Sheldon spelled Ian McKellen as "Ian McKellan". Since he has an eidetic memory, that would suggest he's never seen McKellen's name written down before (like in the credits for X-Men or Lord of the Rings)
  • Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): James Earl Jones' name does not appear on Sheldon's list. However the names of Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carie Fisher are listed. It is unlikely that Sheldon would leave off James only to consider meeting him in person later.

Trivia

  • Title Reference: The guys can't get tickets to Comic-Con so Sheldon decides to start his own convention.
  • First episode that Kaley Cuoco is credited as Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting following her marriage to tennis player Ryan Sweeting.
  • Sheldon and Leonard own the limited edition R2-D2 Xbox console. It can be seen in the part where Leonard convinces Raj and Howard to go through with purchasing scalper's tickets.
