The Big Bang Theory: The Large Hadron Collision

315. The Large Hadron Collision

Aired February 8, 2010

When Leonard gets the opportunity to visit CERN's Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland, he must decide who to take with him as he's only allowed one guest. Leonard plans on taking Penny but faces immense pressure from Sheldon to take him.

Quote from Howard

Leonard: What would you guys do if you were me?
Wolowitz: I would take Sheldon to Switzerland.
Leonard: Seriously?
Wolowitz: Absolutely. And I'd leave him there.

Quote from Penny

Sheldon: It was you. I touched you!
Penny: Happy Valentine's Day.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: There's an economic concept known as a positional good in which an object is only valued by the possessor because it's not possessed by others. The term was coined in 1976 by economist Fred Hirsch to replace the more colloquial, but less precise "neener-neener".

Quote from Penny

Penny: I think I caught the flu. *Throwing up*. Or the plague!

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Given that Saint Valentine was a 3rd century Roman priest who was stoned and beheaded, wouldn't a more appropriate celebration of the evening be taking one's steady gal to witness a brutal murder?

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Hello.
Penny: Hello.
Sheldon: Ok, enough with the friendly banter. I believe you know why I am here.
Penny: Oh, I always figured it was to study us, discover our weaknesses, and report back to your alien overlords.
Sheldon: Yes amusing. Extraordinary intelligence might well appear extraterrestrial to you, but let me be more specific. I believe you know why I am here in the laundry room.

Quote from Raj

Raj: If anyone's interested, I'll be spending this Valentine's in the same way I spend every Valentine's. Buying a rotisserie chicken from the supermarket, taking it home, standing over the sink and eating it out of the package with my bare hands like an animal.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: I've been dreaming about going to the Large Hadron Collider since I was nine years old.
Leonard: Yeah, well, I've been dreaming about spending Valentine's Day with a girl since I was six.
Sheldon: Shame on you! That's no dream for a scientist.
