The Big Bang Theory: The Hofstadter Isotope

220. The Hofstadter Isotope

Aired April 13, 2009

When Penny accompanies the guys to the comic book store, she is charmed by store owner Stuart. Leonard wonders why Penny has fallen for a guy who is just as geeky as he is.

Quote from Stuart

Stuart: Oh, Sheldon, I'm afraid you couldn't be more wrong.
Sheldon: More wrong? Wrong is an absolute state and not subject to gradation.
Stuart: Of course it is. It's a little wrong to say a tomato is a vegetable, it's very wrong to say it's a suspension bridge.

Howard: Yeah, that one.
