Episode Quotes

Amy Farrah Fowler: I propose we spend Valentine's Day at a bed and breakfast in Napa.
Sheldon Cooper: I hate every word in that sentence, including "we", "in", "at", and "a".
Bernadette Rostenkowski: You sure you guys don't want to come with us to Napa. You can probably still get a room.
Leonard Hofstadter: No. I think we'll just have a quiet weekend at home.
Leonard Hofstadter: Of course I'm not sure it's a great idea to take Penny where wine comes from. What? It's a joke. Oh, come on. We bust on each other. I wear dorky glasses and you might have a problem. It's all for laughs.
Penny: That would really piss me off if I didn't have a buzz going on.
Penny: Should we take this little party to the bedroom?
Leonard Hofstadter: We don't have to. We have the whole place to ourselves.
Penny: Oh that's true.
Leonard Hofstadter: In fact, if you want we can do it right here on Sheldon's spot.
Penny: That is the least sexy thing anyone's ever said to me.
Leonard Hofstadter: To the bedroom!


  • Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): When Leonard suggests having sex in Sheldon's spot, Penny claims that it is "the least sexy thing anyone has ever said to me." However, in season 3's episode The Pirate Solution, Penny is the one who suggests making out in Sheldon's spot.
  • Goof (continuity error): When Penny and Leonard are waiting for the vet, Penny's arms are either crossed with the right arm over the left or the left arm over the right depending on the camera angle.
  • Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): The locomotives used on the Napa Valley Wine train were built by the American Locomotive Company, commonly abbreviated to "Alco." However, Amy calls the company "Alcoa."
  • Goof (continuity error): SPOILER: When Sheldon returns from Napa Valley and reveals the events of the weekend, Leonard presses for more details. Sheldon states that he kissed Amy Farrah Fowler on the lips, and then offers, "Amy's lips tasted like the brownie we had for dessert." Several scenes prior however, Amy is chatting with Bernadette and Howard over dessert, and it appears to be cheesecake. There's no chocolate in sight.


  • SPOILER: First episode where Sheldon kisses Amy on the lips.
  • Title Reference: Sheldon feels that Amy is trying to manipulate him into romance while having dinner aboard a vintage train.
  • Sheldon's question about the type of couplers shows how little he really knows about trains. Couplers of the type he describes have been outlawed since 1893 for safety reasons, and the cars are all-steel construction, indicating they were built around 1910 or later. Also, these coupler types (and the one Eric describes) all have different and distinct appearances, so a quick glance at the exterior of the cars would have clearly indicated what type they were.
