Quote from Leonard

Penny: I mean, come on, when was the last time you did something totally selfish without worrying about what anyone else wanted?

Quote from Amy

Amy: Look, when you wanted Penny, you didn't care what anybody else thought or wanted, including Penny.
Leonard: That's true. Yeah, yeah, there was something I wanted, I went after it and I got it.
Amy: Now you're hiding from it on the stairs, so it all worked out.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Gee, I'm sorry, I didn't watch the news today. Has the whole world gone mad?
Leonard: It's my house. I'm tired of being told where I can and can't sit.
Sheldon: [to Penny] You did this. Amy, grab your meat. We're leaving in a huff.
Amy: I'm sorry, if I don't go now, it's not a huff.

Quote from Amy

Amy: Wow. Déjà vu.
Sheldon: Amy, you're a neuroscientist. you know the latest research into déjà vu suggests it's nothing but the frontal regions of the brain attempting to correct an inaccurate memory.
Amy: You telling me stuff I already know is definitely déjà vu.

Quote from Amy

Sheldon: How can I tell if I'm doing something for a noble reason or a selfish reason?
Amy: Try saying the thing in your head and see if you can add the words, "That'll show 'em."

Quote from Amy

Sheldon: Leonard's about to demand a job that I don't think the university will give him. I'm worried he's making a giant mistake. But maybe I only think that because deep down I don't want him to succeed.
Amy: The fact that you're worried about your motivation supports the idea that you genuinely care for your friend.
Sheldon: I do. Thank you, Amy. You know what? After I've talked to Leonard, you've earned yourself a bonus lecture on Sponge Hulk.
Amy: That'll show me.

Quote from Amy

Leonard: Oh, the there's a 7:15 at the ArcLight.
Penny: Well, that doesn't give us much time to eat.
Leonard: We can eat afterwards.
Sheldon: I'm not gonna eat at 10:00 at night. Who am I, Hemingway?
Amy: Why do you think Hemingway ate at 10:00?
Sheldon: He spent a lot of time in Spain. They eat dinner late.
Amy: He also spent a lot of time in Florida. Last time I was there, people were eating dinner at, like, 4:30.

Quote from Bernadette

Raj: So, then, we can see the 3-D at 9:00 or the 2-D at 9:30.
Bernadette: 3-D. If I'm gonna see Thor, I want to feel like I could lick those abs.

Quote from Penny

Penny: How's your headache?
Leonard: It's better. The throwing up really helped.
Penny: Mm. I'm so sorry you missed the end of the movie.
Leonard: Oh, it's okay. Everyone talked about it so much on the ride home, I feel like I saw it.
Penny: Well, to be fair, you talked about the bathroom so much, we felt like we saw that, too.

Quote from Leonard

Leonard: I think I would've been okay if we weren't sitting so close.
Penny: Well, then, why did we sit so close?
Leonard: Sheldon said, "Are these seats good for everyone?" What was I supposed to do, say no, like a maniac?

Quote from Penny

Penny: Sweetie, you have got to stand up for yourself. You know, maybe Sheldon's right. Maybe you are that word he said.
Leonard: Satisficer?
Penny: Yeah, that! That's the one. Boy, sounds way more made-up when you say it.

Quote from Amy

Amy: Do I want to ask?
Leonard: Oh, when I go upstairs, Penny's gonna make me choose what we're gonna do tonight without taking her feelings into consideration, and I-I don't know if I'm up for it.
Amy: Poor baby. When I go upstairs, Sheldon's gonna give me a 25-minute lecture about what Hulk would be like if he were made of metal. Part of his ongoing series, "What If Hulk Were Made of Other Things?"

Quote from Amy

Leonard: I've always been a people pleaser. Is that so bad? It's gotten me this far.
Amy: What, almost up four flights of stairs?

Quote from Amy

Leonard: Okay, if I go in there and pick something I want to do that she also wants to do, she's gonna think I'm just picking it to make her happy. So I feel like I have to pick something I know she doesn't want to do or she's gonna be disappointed. Right? What do you think?
Amy: Think I've got ice cream in this bag that's starting to melt.

Quote from Raj

Raj: And, with apologies to Lady Gaga, that's how a star is born.
Howard: Told you he was gonna mention Lady Gaga.
Bernadette: At least he didn't talk about how much he cried during that movie.
Raj: Although, if you haven't seen that movie, you should. I cried so much.

Quote from Howard

Raj: Well, that's the lecture for today. Uh, let's open it up for questions. Uh- Oh, you! Sir, yes. You have a question?
Howard: Yeah. Actually, I have a two-part question.
Raj: Are you sure? I get the sense it's only one part.
Howard: No, no, it's two. Part one: the new star you were talking about. How long did it take that light to reach Earth? And part two: is it true you plant your friends in the audience to ask questions?
Raj: 46,000 years. And no, I don't plant my friends, because apparently, I don't have any.

Quote from Bernadette

Raj: Okay, any other questions? Mm. Not about aliens? [to Bernadette] What?
Bernadette: Do you still want me to ask the one you gave me? 'Cause it kind of feels like we're past that.

Quote from Sheldon

Leonard: Um, I picked it. You're the one who told me to stop being such a satisficer all the time.
Sheldon: What? I did not. I just pointed out that you were one. It's what I like best about you. Well, that and those little notes you leave in my lunch.
Amy: I leave those!
Sheldon: Well, that's disappointing. I already know that you heart me. Now I don't know if Leonard does.

Quote from Leonard

Sheldon: Leonard? Um, I have been agonizing over whether or not to say something to you.
Leonard: Aw. Let me help. Don't.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: I don't think that you should demand to be in charge of a plasma project.
Leonard: Well, big surprise. You can't stand the idea of me succeeding.
Sheldon: No. I'll be honest. New assertive Leonard is going to take some getting used to. But so did cargo pants Leonard, hmm? Who, for the record, I miss. He always had gum.

Quote from Penny

Penny: How did it go?
Leonard: Great.
Penny: What, so you got the job?
Leonard: I did not.
Penny: So you quit? Okay, Leonard, I can't move. I just bought a six-month membership to SoulCycle.

Quote from Leonard

Leonard: Well, I-I didn't quit. I said I was going to. I walked out the door and started crying. You know, "Oh, my, God, oh, my God, oh, my God, what'd I do?" And then he called me back in.
Penny: Then he changed his mind?
Leonard: He did not.
Penny: I'm really confused about how to react to this story.
Leonard: President Siebert didn't want to lose me. Even though they couldn't make me a lead investigator on a plasma team, there was an opening for a co-lead on a photon entanglement team. How cool is that?
Penny: You're gonna have to tell me.
Leonard: It's really cool.
Penny: Yay! Oh, I am so happy for you.
Leonard: I almost got what I wanted, and it never would have happened if you hadn't almost believed in me.

Quote from Leonard

Penny: Let's celebrate. What do you want to do?
Leonard: Oh, please don't make me decide another thing.
Penny: Hey, you want to go to SoulCycle with me?
Leonard: Give me a minute, I'll think of something.

Quote from Amy

Sheldon: Now, I know what You're you're thinking: isn't Broccoli Hulk basically just the Jolly Green Giant?
Amy: That is what I was thinking. Let's never discuss it again.

Quote from Sheldon

Amy: Really? Are you hiding from Penny again?
Leonard: No. No, no, no. I-I went to SoulCycle with her, and my legs hurt so bad, I literally can't stand up.
Amy: Sheldon, why don't you keep him company.
Sheldon: All right.Hello, Leonard.
Leonard: Hey.
Sheldon: Have you ever wondered what the Hulk would be like if he were made of sherbet?
Leonard: I give up.
Sheldon: Delicious.
