Episode Quotes

Amy Farrah Fowler: Why do I even try?
Bernadette Rostenkowski: I'm going to fix this right now.
Howard Wolowitz: OK. Just make it look light an accident.
Bernadette Rostenkowski: Excuse me. You at a Valentine's dinner with your girlfriend. Now get back over there and be with her.
Sheldon Cooper: You're right. That was insensitive of me. I have to got back to my table now. You should join us.
Eric: All right.
Bernadette Rostenkowski: Great. Now there's two of them.
Howard Wolowitz: A world I don't want to live in. Seriously I don't want to live in this world.
Sheldon Cooper: So how long have you been riding trains?
Eric: Six years. I used to work at UPS until a box fell on my head. Now I just collect disability and ride the rails.
Sheldon Cooper: Your life is perfect.
Eric: Not always. Six years ago a box fell on me at UPS and hit me on the head.


  • 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 (revealing mistake): In the vet's office, when Raj says his line about being Leonard and Penny's worst nightmare, Yvette can be seen biting her lip to keep from laughing.


  • 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.
