The Big Bang Theory: The Jerusalem Duality

112. The Jerusalem Duality

Aired April 14, 2008

Sheldon is rattled when a 15-year-old physics prodigy, Dennis Kim, visits the university. Sheldon loses faith in his own work in the presence of the boy genius, so he decides to leave theoretical physics behind and focus on obtaining the Nobel Peace Prize. Concerned by Sheldon's career turn, the guys seek to derail Dennis Kim's progress.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Engineering. Where the noble semiskilled laborers execute the vision of those who think and dream. Hello, Oompa-Loompas of science.


Quote from Raj

Raj: Can you believe it! He watched me work for 10 minutes and than he tried to build a little piece of software that could replace me.
Leonard: Is that really possible?
Raj: As it turned out, yes.

Quote from Leonard

Leonard: Okay, Sheldon, I understand that youre going through a bit of a career crisis, you're searching for some other area where you can feel valuable and productive but I need to tell you something and I want you to listen carefully.
Sheldon: All right.
Leonard: Go away!

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Ladies and Gentlemen, honored daughters. While Mr. Kim by virtue of his youth and naivete has fallen prey to the inexplicable need for human contact, let me assure you that my research will go on uninterrupted, and that social relationships will continue to baffle and repulse me. Thank you.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Today, I went from being Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, to... You know, that other guy.
Howard: Antonio Salieri?
Sheldon: Oh God, now even you're smarter than me.

Quote from Penny

Penny: I don't understand, exactly how did he get any friends in the first place?
Howard: We liked Leonard.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Yeah, I think you'll appreciate this, very exciting.
Dr. Gablehauser: Oh, what are you working on?
Sheldon: Something remarkable. Since my prospects for the Nobel Prize in physics have disappeared, thank you very much, I've decided to refocus my efforts and use my people skills to win the Nobel Peace Prize. Look, I'm going to solve the Middle-East Crisis by building an exact replica of Jerusalem in the middle of the Mexican desert.
Dr. Gablehauser: To what end?
Sheldon: You know, it's like the baseball movie, build it and they will come.
Dr. Gablehauser: Who will come?
Sheldon: The Jewish people.
Dr. Gablehauser: What if they don't come?
Sheldon: We'll make it nice, put out a spread.

Quote from Sheldon

Dr. Gablehauser: Okay, well, speaking of spreads, we're having a small welcoming party this afternoon for Mr. Kim who's agreed to join us here at the university.
Sheldon: Of course he has. The Oracle told us little Neo was the one. You can see the matrix, can't you?

Quote from Sheldon

Howard: Sheldon, there's a diploma in my office that says I have masters in engineering.
Sheldon: And you also have a note from your mother that says "I love you, Bubula" but neither of those is a cogent argument for titanium over nano-tubes.

Quote from Raj

Howard: I guess times have changed since we were young. Smart is the new sexy.
Leonard: Then why do we go home alone every night? We're still smart.
Raj: Maybe we're too smart. So smart it's off-putting.
Howard: Yeah, let's go with that.
