The Big Bang Theory: The Fermentation Bifurcation

922. The Fermentation Bifurcation

Aired April 28, 2016

The gang goes to a wine bar and runs into Penny's old boyfriend, Zack. Also, Bernadette gets stuck spending the evening with Sheldon when she can't go wine tasting with the group, and things don't go as planned when Koothrappali introduces his new girlfriend, Claire.

Quote from Leonard

Penny: All right, well, let me know if you guys want to go.
Raj: I would love to. I do enjoy the complexity of an aged Pinot noir.
Leonard: I'm sure that would pair nicely with your fried nuggets of chicken.

Quote from Sheldon

Amy: Well, it sounds like a nice night. We should go.
Sheldon: Wine again? Yeah, no, thank you. I like my grapes the old-fashioned way, in a juice box.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Well, it makes perfect sense. Because you're an expectant mother, you can't drink alcohol. I don't like to. You can't have sushi. I don't like to. You can't go in hot tubs. I consider them vats of sweaty people soup.
Bernadette: Gee, Sheldon, I dont know.
Sheldon: Oh, come on. Roller coasters, caffeine, runny eggs, I've been avoiding these things all my life. And now, because you're pregnant, you have to.

Quote from Leonard

Leonard: The difference is she's bringing life into the world, and you suck it out.

Quote from Sheldon

Bernadette: So what do you want to do tonight?
Sheldon: Oh, I have quite the evening planned. Our foetus-friendly festival of fun begins with an in-depth look at the world of model trains, and then we'll kick things up a notch and explore all the different ways that you can make toast.
Bernadette: There's more than one?
Sheldon: You've heard of French toast?
Bernadette: (upbeat) Yeah.
Sheldon: Cinnamon toast?
Bernadette: (upbeat) Yeah.
Sheldon: Melba toast?
Bernadette: (upbeat) Yeah.
Sheldon: You get where I'm going here?
Bernadette: (downbeat) Yeah.

Quote from Howard

Zack: So how's the science world? What are you guys up to?
Howard: We've actually been working on a prototype for a navigation system we invented.
Leonard: But we won't bore you with the details.
Zack: Are you kidding? I love science. Einstein, Stephen Hawking, Mike deGrasse Tyson.
Amy: Mike deGrasse Tyson?
Howard: Yeah, you know, the boxer who grew a mustache and became a scientist.

Quote from Sheldon

Bernadette: What is it about trains that you like so much?
Sheldon: What an interesting question. When I was a child, life was confusing and chaotic for me, and trains represented order. I could line them up, categorize them, control them. I guess you could say that they gave me a sense of calm in a world that didn't.
Bernadette: That's lovely, Sheldon.
Sheldon: Well, other than when they're chugging through your bowels, these things are magic.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Your name is Bernatrix. You are a warrior queen. You're strong, beautiful and tall.
Bernadette: Oh. I like the idea of being tall.
Sheldon: I think you're gonna like a lot of things I have in store. For example, in this world, only the men get pregnant, so your husband is home trying not to pee when he laughs.
Bernadette: This is getting fun. What's next?
Sheldon: You're parched and weary from battle. You stand in front of a tavern that serves the coldest, most delicious ale in all the realm.
Bernadette: Oh, I haven't had a drink in months.
Sheldon: What do you do?
Bernadette: I storm in, slam my sword down, and say, barkeep, bring me the strongest ale you have and serve it in the skull of a goblin.
Sheldon: He wants to see I.D.

Quote from Howard

Howard: Okay, let me stop you right there. We absolutely know our invention will not be used to destroy the world.
Leonard: How?
Howard: Because no one from the future has come back to kill us.

Quote from Sheldon

Leonard: Hey, did you ever think about the military applications for the guidance system?
Sheldon: Of course.
Leonard: Does it bother you?
Sheldon: No, it did at first. But then I talked it through with Frank and Alicia, and they really helped put things into perspective.
Leonard: Who are these people?
Sheldon: Leonard, friends are like toilet paper. It's good to have extras under the sink.

Quote from Howard

Howard: Well, we're out. Bernie can't drink 'cause she's pregnant. And she's pregnant because we had sex. And we had sex because, well, (points to his body) come on.

Quote from Raj

Raj: Hey, Claire.
Claire: Hey, what's up?
Raj: Hi, yeah. Um, I was wondering, if you're free Saturday night, all my friends are going to a wine tasting.
Claire: Sure, I guess. If you don't think meeting your friends is too big a step.
Raj: Why would it be too big a step?
Claire: I don't know. I just don't want things to get weird.
Raj: Nothing to worry about. People meet people all the time, and it isn't weird. I met Bon Jovi once, which you'd think might be weird. Turns out, total sweetheart.
Claire: Okay, but you and I have been keeping things casual. Uh, will you introduce me as your friend or as your girlfriend? What if I like them and they don't like me? What if they like me and I don't like them?
Raj: Boy, it wasn't this hard with Bon Jovi. I said you rock, he said "Thanks, man," and that was that.

Quote from Howard

Howard: Hey. Where is everybody?
Amy: Oh, we're the first ones here.
Howard: Oh, cool.
Amy: Yeah, cool.
Howard: You know, I don't remember the last time it was just you and me hanging out.
Amy: Oh, I do. It was three years ago.
Howard: Oh, yeah, and we said we should do it more often. And, and, and, and here we are.

Quote from Leonard

Amy: I'm getting an earthy note.
Penny: Ah, there's definitely some oak.
Raj: Also, uh, cherries?
Leonard: I smell nothing.
Howard: Really? Nothing?
Leonard: Just a whole lot of Afrin.

Quote from Bernadette

Sheldon: And last but not least, this is one that I like to call Star Wars Toast because it has a light side and a dark side. All righty, it's time for Dungeons & Dragons.
Bernadette: Dungeons & Dragons? That sounds about right.
