The Big Bang Theory: The Anxiety Optimization

813. The Anxiety Optimization

Aired January 29, 2015

When Sheldon decides his comfortable lifestyle may be holding back his scientific progress, he asks his threads to irritate and annoy him to improve his work. Meanwhile, Howard embarrasses Raj by creating a new game, 'Emily or Cinnamon?'.

Quote from Howard

Howard: I invented a game. Want to play?
Leonard: Sure.
Howard: It's called Emily or Cinnamon. I give you actual quotes I've heard Raj say, and you guess if he was talking to his girlfriend or his dog.

Quote from Penny

Penny: I love him, but if he's broken, let's not get a new one.

Quote from Sheldon

Amy: Look, your anxiety levels are right in the zone.
Sheldon: Really? Oh, that's fantastic. No wait, they're dropping. Why are they dropping?
Amy: Because you're happy they're elevated.
Sheldon: Oh, that is infuriating. Oh look, they're going back up again. Terrific. Oh no, they're going back down.

Quote from Sheldon

Leonard: At least listen to it through headphones. I'm trying to sleep, good night.
Sheldon: Boy. Taylor was right. Haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate.

Quote from Sheldon

Penny: Shouldn't you be getting ready for work?
Sheldon: I'm not going. Would you like to know why?
Penny: You're sad about not getting any thing done last night, so you're gonna sit around and pout about it.
Sheldon: Boy, I'm not nearly as mysterious as I think I am.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: I don't want to tell you how to do your job, but when a mouse completes a maze, it gets a food pellet.
Amy: It also gets its brain plucked out with tweezers.
Sheldon: And its last meal was a food pellet? You're a monster.

Quote from Sheldon

Penny: Oh, I'm just doing this awful work out. I hate it.
Sheldon: Well if you hate it, then why are you doing it? Although I could ask the same question about the coitus with Leonard.

Quote from Sheldon

Penny: Now you just get comfortable.
Sheldon: No, no. Comfort is the enemy. You know what's comfortable? Slippers, and blankets, and panda bears. Oh, imagine a panda bear with Richard Feynman's face on it!
Warm up the car, Leonard. It's poster time.

Quote from Penny

Penny: So, whichever rep has the best sales for the quarter gets a trip for two to Hawaii.
Amy: That would be so romantic for you and Leonard.
Penny: Yeah, clearly you haven't seen him on the beach walking around with his metal detector.

Quote from Sheldon

Amy: Sheldon, I want you to take that cap off.
Sheldon: That nagging tone is helping my anxiety. But if you could maybe go 10% less shrill, that would really put the zip-a-dee in my doo-dah.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Hey, what are you trying to pull? The President of Science isn't in here.
Leonard: You lie down, he'll be here in a minute.
Sheldon: Okay. I thought you were trying to trick me.

Quote from Sheldon

Amy: All canines instinctively know how to swim. Why wouldn't a werewolf have the same abilities?
Bernadette: Well, they're not a hundred percent wolf. They're a werewolf, that's only a part wolf. That's like comparing apples to oranges.
Sheldon: Thank you! Although technically it's apples that turn into were-oranges when the moon is full.

Oh, this is fun. We should do it sometime when you aren't all PMSing.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: I knew you'd understand, armadillo Isaac Newton.

Quote from Penny

Penny: Have fun.
Sheldon: Oh, I will. Nothing more fun than a paradigm shifting evening of science.
Penny: (To Leonard) And you thought it was soaping me up in the shower.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: I'm not going to work today. And would you like to know why?
Leonard: You're upset because you spent the whole night working on dark matter and didn't make a break through, and now you're worried you made a huge mistake switching fields, and you're gonna sit around and sulk all day.
Sheldon: Like a big old baby.
