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!
James Earl Jones: [looks up from his menu to see Sheldon standing there] Let me guess: you like Star Wars.
Sheldon Cooper: [nods]
James Earl Jones: You know I've been in other movies.
Sheldon Cooper: [nods again]
James Earl Jones: But you don't care about those, do you?
Sheldon Cooper: [shakes his head]
James Earl Jones: [motions Sheldon closer] I have one thing to say to people like you: I like Star Wars too! Care to join me?
Sheldon Cooper: Thank you! My friend Leonard said if I bothered you while you were eating, you'd think I was a creepy stalker.
James Earl Jones: Well, your friend Leonard sounds like a real weenie!
Sheldon Cooper: He is, Mr. Earl Jones, he is!
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?

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.
  • 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.
  • First episode that Kaley Cuoco is credited as Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting following her marriage to tennis player Ryan Sweeting.
