The Big Bang Theory: The Comet Polarization

1121. The Comet Polarization

Aired April 19, 2018

When author Neil Gaiman gives Stuart's comic book store a popularity boost, Sheldon is uncomfortable with the changes at the Comic Center. Meanwhile, Raj takes credit for an astronomical discovery made by Penny, putting their friendship at risk.

Quote from Sheldon

Stuart: Oh, look at that. Neil Gaiman tweeted about my store!
Howard: What did he say? Uh, "Next time you're in Pasadena, check out The Comic Center. Great vibe, old school, the owner really knows his stuff." Isn't that amazing?
Sheldon: Well, uh, it's no Sandman, but I guess we can't expect everything he writes to be a masterpiece.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Can you see Mercury? Can you see it?
Raj: One second.
Amy: You know, the Greek version of Mercury, Hermes, was worshipped in Athens by the carving of giant wooden phalluses.
Sheldon: Please, Amy, get your mind out of the ancient Athenian gutter.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: What am I supposed to do now if I want to hang out and read a comic book?
Stuart: Go sit on the couch.
Sheldon: Next to a stranger? If I'm going to sit, read, and ignore a woman, it's going to be my fiancée.

Quote from Stuart

Stuart: Listen to this. I-I was ringing up a customer, and I heard someone say, "Hey, there's a line," and I looked, and there was.

Quote from Sheldon

Raj: This baby's got a ten-inch diameter with f/10 ACF optics.
Howard: And tonight Mercury is at its highest elongation.
Sheldon: It makes far-away things seem close, and Mercury is a planet.
Penny: I know Mercury is a planet. But the-the other thing was helpful.

Quote from Howard

Stuart: Obviously, vibranium is the most powerful metal in comics.
Raj: What, more powerful than adamantium?
Sheldon: He's right. Wolverine's claws, Ultron's outer shell. Need I go on?
Howard: You don't need to, but you probably will.

Quote from Stuart

Sheldon: You know what? Just give me a copy of Action Comics 1000, and I'll be on my way.
Stuart: Sorry. All out.
Sheldon: Now you just let people come in and buy them? I didn't realize your soul was also for sale.
Stuart: Well, it wasn't, but, uh, make me an offer.

Quote from Stuart

Stuart: I am really sorry. I will make it up to you. But it won't be with a Val Kilmer Batman figurine (laughing) because some sucker's buying that right now. [to the customer] (laughs) Not you. This is great.

Quote from Amy

Sheldon: No I'm not annoyed that she's a woman. I'm annoyed, and she's a woman.
Amy: No, I get that. I'm annoyed and I'm a woman.

Quote from Amy

Sheldon: It's just, Stuart knows my likes and dislikes. And I can count on his discretion if I pick up the occasional back issue of Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen. Which I don't.
Amy: Well, don't think of her as a stranger. Just think of her as a a friend you haven't berated, lectured or condescended to yet.
Sheldon: I hadn't thought of it that way. Thank you.
Amy: You're welcome.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Just look at her over there. She just started, and she gets to put up "Staff Picks." I've been coming here for ten years, I still can't put up "Sheldon Dislikes."

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Excuse me. I was wondering if you could recommend something.
Denise: Oh, sure. You want to tell me what you like?
Sheldon: I would not.
Denise: All right, well, you're wearing a Green Lantern shirt, so I'm guessing you're a DC fan. Although that's from the Alan Scott era, so you're probably not super into the current run. How would you feel about an alternate history where World War I was fought with dragons and magic?
Sheldon: That's what I wanted the theme of my tenth birthday party to be!

Quote from Sheldon

Neil Gaiman: You know, if you're interested in alternate histories, Neil Gaiman wrote one called 1602.
Sheldon: I'm sorry, we're in the middle of something here.
Neil Gaiman: It is pretty good, actually. He takes the Marvel superheroes and he puts them into Elizabethan England.
Sheldon: Let me guess, everyone thinks the X-Men are witches.
Neil Gaiman: Yeah.
