Aired September 26, 2013

With Leonard away at sea, Sheldon and Penny bond over their intimate secrets. Meanwhile, Raj is consoled as he deals with his break-up from Lucy, and Amy and Bernadette spend time together at a science convention.

Quote from Amy

Amy: It would be nice to be with a man who wants to know what's underneath my cardigan. FYI, it's another cardigan.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: As rock and roll bad boy Paul Simon once said, "I am a rock. I am an i.....sland".

Quote from Amy

Amy: Your husband's weird and his clothes are ridiculous.

Quote from Raj

Raj: Who died and made you the king of moments?

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: A while back, YouTube changed its user interface from a star-based rating system to a thumbs-up rating system. I tell people I'm okay with it, but I'm really not.

Quote from Sheldon

Penny: I get it, I get it. You're an emotionless robot.
Sheldon: Well, I try.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: I want you to be happy, too. But not enough to do anything about it.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Well now I know how it must have felt being mauled by that sex-crazed gorilla.

Quote from Amy

Amy: Maybe tomorrow morning we put on some hot pants and see if we could score us some free omelettes.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: I own nine pairs of pants.
Penny: Okay, that's a good start. But I was thinking something a bit more personal.
Sheldon: Oh, okay. I own nine pairs of underpants.

Quote from Raj

Raj: I mean, if I were hitting on you, you’d know it 'cause you'd feel uncomfortable and a little sad for me.

Quote from Sheldon

Leonard: Sheldon, it's not a great time. What do you want?
Sheldon: (on the phone in the apartment) Hello to you, too. I'm sorry, but this is important.
Leonard: What is it?
Sheldon: Back to the Future II was in the Back to the Future III case, and Back to the Future III was, get this, in the Back to the Future II case.
Leonard: So?
Sheldon: So, did you do that, or am I in the house with an intruder?

Quote from Sheldon

Penny: What's the matter?
Sheldon: Um, well, I was worried that you might be missing Leonard. And that might be causing you to have bad dreams, like the kind you'd get if you watched Clash of the Titans right before you went to bed.
Penny: Sweetie, did you have a bad dream?
Sheldon: To be honest, I did.
Penny: Aww.
Sheldon: Back to the Future II was in the Back to the Future III case. Leonard did it.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Dear Lord, you're an astronomer. Although you may have earthly woes, get your mind back on the stars. Gee, even the lowly dung beetle chooses to plot its course by using the Milky Way.
Raj: Is that true?
Sheldon: Everything I say is true. Now, of course, the dung beetle also enjoys eating feces, living in feces and making little balls out of feces, so, you know, pick and choose which aspects of its lifestyle you want to embrace.

Quote from Sheldon

Penny: Why don't you just admit you only want to play this game because you always play it with Leonard and you miss him?
Sheldon: You overestimate his significance in my life. Do I miss how he makes a face on my toaster waffle with syrup? No. Do I miss the way he fixes the zipper on my jacket when it gets stuck? I don't think so. Do I miss how we say good night to each other through the walls of our bedroom using Morse code? (taps out "no" in morse code)

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: By the way, how are you with zippers?
Penny: Why?
Sheldon: Well, I really need to go to the bathroom, and this ones gone all cattywampus.

Quote from Sheldon

Penny: Okay, look, here's something people do not know about me. When I first moved out to L.A., I did a topless scene in a low-budget horror movie about a killer gorilla. Ugh, after I did it, I felt so ashamed. Thankfully, that thing never came out.
Sheldon: I've seen that. Yeah. "Serial Apeist". Howard found it online the day we met you.
Penny: Oh, God.
Sheldon: And it was literally the moment you walked out the door.
