Quote from Sheldon

Quote from Sheldon

Quote from Leonard

Penny: Ok, here you go Leonard. One tequila sunrise!

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Damn you, walletnook.com!

Penny: OK.

Penny: Are you talking to me?
Raj: Is there another Penny here?

Quote from Penny

Sheldon: When I was a little boy and got sick, which was most of the time, my mother would read [The Monkey and the Princess] to me. It's about an Indian princess who befriends a monkey who was mocked by all the other monkeys because he was different. For some reason I related to it quite strongly.
Penny: I know the reason.
Leonard: We all know the reason.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: A cuba libre traditionally comes in a tall glass with a lime wedge in it.
Penny: Then swim to cuba.
Sheldon: Bartenders are supposed to have people skills.

Quote from Raj

Raj: You have lost so much weight. That must have been difficult for you because you were so, so fat. Do you remember?
Lalita: Yes I do.
Raj: Of course you do. Who could forget being that fat?
Lalita: Well I've been trying.
