906. The Helium Insufficiency

Aired October 26, 2015

In the midst of a nation-wide helium shortage, Sheldon and Leonard take desperate measures to get the supplies they need. Also, Penny and Bernadette download a dating app on Amy's phone to try and find her a new man.

Quote from Sheldon

Leonard: What are we going to do?
Sheldon: Perform the experiment immediately.
Leonard: I'd love to, but we need liquid helium and our shipment's on back order for a month.
Sheldon: A month? What? Are you kidding me? That would have been a good time for you to soften the blow.
Leonard: That shirt brings out the blue in your eyes.
Sheldon: Thank you. Aren't you sweet?

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Uh, but this is violating university code.
Leonard: A little, but if I may quote Einstein, "The pursuit of science calls us to ignore the rules set by man"
Sheldon: Huh. All right, do it. Tell him we're in.
Leonard: Done.
Sheldon: I can't find that quote on the Internet. Did you make that up?
Leonard: Before I answer, may I just say your skin has never looked better.
Sheldon: Aren't you just made of sugar.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: He has glasses and I'm a know-it-all. We are not built for prison.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Leonard, if that Swedish team beats us, I will never be able to enjoy anything from their country again. Which is a shame, because Swedish meatballs are my favorite toothpick-delivered meatball.

Quote from Penny

Bernadette: Hey, you know who went out on a date the other night? Stuart.
Penny: Oh, good for him.
Bernadette: I thought so, too.
Penny: So is she, like, homeless, or framing him for a crime?

Quote from Stuart

Penny: Well, so how does it work?
Stuart: Ah, well, it shows me all the single women in a five-mile radius who are using the app. If I like the way they look, I hit thumbs up. If I don't, thumbs down.
Bernadette: Oh, what would make you give a girl a thumbs down?
Stuart: First time it happens I will let you know.

Quote from Sheldon

Leonard: Oh, hey. I just heard back from the liquid helium guy.
Sheldon: What'd he say?
Leonard: He's got what we need and can meet us tonight.
Sheldon: Oh, really? You know I don't like buying things at night.
January 7, 2009. I went to the Ralph's at 11:30pm to pick up Cracklin' Oat Bran for the morning, and what did I see?
Leonard: The man restocking the cereal shelves.
Sheldon: That's right. And what did he do?
Leonard: He handed you the box directly and called you Stretch.
Sheldon: (shudders) It's like it was yesterday.

Quote from Sheldon

Leonard: That must be him.
Sheldon: Oh, of course. A nondescript, white panel van.
You may be familiar with it from the sentence: "Their bodies were found in a nondescript, white panel van."

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: And I'm sorry I lied about being a wedding planner who can't find love. Although I am currently single, if you know anybody.

Quote from Sheldon

Leonard: He wants more money.
Sheldon: Well, it better not be more than a thousand dollars. That's all I've got on me.
Dealer: That's exactly how much it is.
Sheldon: Finally, something breaks our way.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Well, the Swedes might beat us, but at least we won't get gang-noogied in prison.
Leonard: Is Ernest Goes to Jail the only prison movie you've seen?
Sheldon: It scared me straight, Leonard.

Quote from Penny

Penny: Oh, he's cute!
Bernadette: Doesn't a teardrop tattoo mean he murdered someone?
Penny: And he's sad about it.

Quote from Howard

Amy: Uh, excuse me, can I have my phone back?
Howard: Hang on, I'm trying to find you the next great love of your life. The man who will father your children.
Okay, yes or no on white guy with dreadlocks?

Quote from Raj

Amy: Aren't we being a little mean?
Raj: That's a fair point. We wouldn't make fun of someone like this to their face.
Penny: Look, it's Stuart!
Raj: You may want to leave the room.

Quote from Stuart

Bernadette: And how many guys have you gone out with?
Stuart: Please be less than two.
Amy: Three.
Stuart: Damn it.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Leonard, I've got terrible news.
Leonard: What's going on?
Sheldon: Before I tell you, perhaps I should soften the blow. Your face is pleasingly symmetrical.
Leonard: Just tell me.
Sheldon: A Swedish team of physicists is trying to scoop our super-fluid vortex experiment.
Leonard: Oh, well, that kind of stinks.
Sheldon: "That kind of stinks?" Why aren't you more upset? Did I soften the blow too much? Because this here (Leonard's face) is more like a Picasso painting.

Quote from Sheldon

Howard: If you need liquid helium so bad, I know a guy who can get you some, if you don't ask too many questions.
Leonard: Who is he?
Sheldon: Where does he work?
Leonard: How does he get the helium?
Sheldon: How many questions are too many questions?
Howard: Maybe he's not for you.
Sheldon: Four questions. The answer's four.

Quote from Penny

Bernadette: He's using some kind of dating app on his phone.
Penny: Oh, which one? Maybe we can get Amy to try it.
Bernadette: I don't know. Stuart, can you come in here? He tried to explain it to me.
It shows you pictures of people nearby, you swipe them around, it looks kind of like a game.
Penny: Oh, and if you lose the game, you have to go out with Stuart.

Quote from Stuart

Stuart: What's up?
Bernadette: Can you show us that dating app?
Sutart: Oh, yeah, sure. This thing has changed my life.
Penny: Wow. So how many girls have you met?
Stuart: Two. I probably don't need to mention there's an entire number between that and zero.

Quote from Raj

Raj: Uh, no no, uh, definitely not.
Howard: What was wrong with that guy?
Raj: Uh, he's Indian. We've already got one of those.
Ooh, we should find a nice Latino. Really round us out.

Quote from Sheldon

Leonard: Look, you can trust us. We're respected scientists.
Sheldon: Well, he is. I'm a wedding planner, who can't find love himself. It's ironic, but the point is, we can't trust you. You're a sketchy character in a parking garage.
Dealer: Yeah, well, from my perspective, that's how you two appear to me.
Sheldon: Well, I never thought of it like that. Boy, frame of reference will just sneak up on you, won't it?

Quote from Sheldon

Dealer: No money, no helium. Seems we're at a, uh, stalemate.
Sheldon: Not technically. In chess, a stalemate refers to a situation in which there are no remaining moves.
Uh, you have plenty of moves available. You could beat us up and steal the money. You could kill us, you know.
Really, you're only limited by your imagination.

Quote from Penny

Penny: Okay, does everyone remember the rules? If he's shirtless, one sip. Posing with a pet, two sips. Pet and shirtless, chug like it's your job.
