The Big Bang Theory: The Cohabitation Formulation

416. The Cohabitation Formulation

Aired February 17, 2011

Leonard rekindles his relationship with Raj's sister, Priya, who is back in town. Meanwhile, Howard contemplates taking his relationship with Bernadette to the next level.

Quote from Sheldon

Amy: So, you feeling better?
Penny: Not really.
Amy: Sheldon, you have a guest who's upset.
Sheldon: I'll make tea.
Penny: Sweetie, it's OK. I don't want tea.
Sheldon: It's not optional.

Quote from Amy

Amy: Thanks to you, I just made a rhesus monkey cry like a disgraced televangelist.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Priya, if you're experiencing any tension or awkwardness, it may stem from the fact that Leonard and Penny used to, if I might quote Howard, "Do the dance with no pants".

Quote from Raj

Raj: You heard me, I forbidded it.
Priya: Forbidded it?
Raj: Forbayded it?

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Just keep in mind, should you ever need a slightly apathetic, tertiary friend, I stand at the ready.

Quote from Amy

Amy: Well, granted Penny your secondary sexual characteristics are reasonably bodacious but Priya is highly educated, she's an accomplished professional and she comes from the culture that literally wrote the book on neat ways to have sex. Whereas you, on the other hand, are a community college drop-out who comes from the culture that wrote the book on tipping cows.

Quote from Amy

Amy: I came as quickly as I could.
Penny: Ok, why?
Amy: To comfort you, of course. Sheldon told me about Leonard dating Rajesh's sister, so I high-tailed over here to pick up the pieces of your broken heart.
Penny: Amy, I'm fine.
Amy: You don't have to be strong for me. Now, let's talk about Priya, that man-stealing bitch.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: The Hindu Code of Manu is very clear in these matters. If a woman's father is not around, the duty of controlling her base desires falls to the closest male member of her family. In this case, Raj. The code also states that if she disobeys, she will be reborn in the womb of a jackal and tormented by diseases. If true, that seems like an awfully large gamble given that the prize is Leonard.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Leonard, social protocol states when a friend is upset, you offer them a hot beverage, such as tea.
Howard: Tea does sound nice.
Sheldon: You heard the man, Leonard. While you're at it I am upset we have an unannounced house guest, so make me cocoa.

Quote from Amy

Amy: It seems like the appropriate thing to do when one's best friend finds herself replaced by a smart, beautiful woman with the smouldering sexuality of a crouched Bengal tiger.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Don't worry. As you tertiary friend I'm prepared to step in and comfort you.
Howard: It's not really necessary.
Sheldon: Ah no. I'll finish making the tea while you narcissistically ramble on about whatever's troubling you.
Howard: Thanks.
Sheldon: That's what tertiary friends are for.
