The Big Bang Theory: The Electric Can Opener Fluctuation

301. The Electric Can Opener Fluctuation

Aired September 21, 2009

After the gang return from their Arctic expedition, Sheldon is stunned to learn that the guys manipulated his data. Fearing his reputation has been ruined, Sheldon retreats to Texas, where the guys must go get him.

Quote from Howard

Howard: Sheldon, you remember the first few weeks we were looking for magnetic monopoles and not finding anything, and you were acting like an obnoxious, giant dictator?
Raj: I thought we were going to be gentle with him.
Howard: That's why I added the '-tator'.


Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Hello Penny. I realize you are currently in the mercy of your primitive biological urges. But, as you have an entire lifetime of poor decisions ahead of you, may I interrupt this one?

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: But evolution is not opinion, it's a fact. Mary Cooper: And that is your opinion. Sheldon: [to Leonard, Howard and Raj] I forgive you, let's go home.

Quote from Sheldon

Penny: When I was a senior in high school, one of my friends heard I was gonna be named head cheerleader, I was so excited. My mom even made me a celebration pie. Then they named stupid Valerie Mossbacher head cheerleader, big old slutbag.
Sheldon: Are you saying that you think a celebration pie is even remotely comparible to a Nobel Prize?
Penny: Well, they're pretty tasty.
Sheldon: And on a different, but not unrelated topic, based on your current efforts to buoy my spirits, do you ever truly believe that you were fit to be a cheer leader?

Quote from Howard

Howard: Damn it! I should've gone over and told her we were back.
Raj: Yeah, it was first come first serve.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: No mother, I could not feel your church group praying for my safety. The fact that I am home safe does not prove it worked. That logic is post hoc ergo propter hoc. No, I'm not sassing you in Eskimo talk.

Quote from Raj

Leonard: Would you please take that stupid hat off?
Howard: No, I want to blend in.
Raj: To what? Toy Story?

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: I don't know which arctic expedition you guys were on, but I thought it was a hoot and a half.

Quote from Leonard

Leonard: When he wasn't happy, we wanted to kill him. There was even a plan. We were going to throw his Kindle outside, and when he went to get it, lock the door and let him freeze to death.
Sheldon: That seems like a bit of an overreaction.
Leonard: No, the overreaction was the plan to tie your limbs to four different sled-dog team and yell "Mush!"

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: I just want you both to know, when I publish my findings, I won't forget your contributions.
Howard: Great.
Sheldon: Of course, I can't mention you in my Nobel acceptance speech. But, when I get around to writing my memoirs, you can expect a very effusive footnote and perhaps a signed copy.
