418. The Prestidigitation Approximation

Aired March 10, 2011

When Priya feels threatened by Leonard spending time with Penny, she forces him to cut her out of his life. Meanwhile, Howard plays mind games with Sheldon by performing a magic trick the great scientist can not figure out.

Quote from Sheldon

Penny: Oh, big deal. Not knowing is part of the fun.
Sheldon: "Not knowing is part of the fun." Was that the motto of your community college?

Quote from Sheldon

Rajesh: Why so glum, chum?
Sheldon: Apparently you can't hack into a government supercomputer and then try to buy uranium without the Department of Homeland Security tattling to your mother.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: So, you're saying this is a regulation deck?
Howard: I'm saying believe in magic, you muggle.

Quote from Penny

Leonard: Okay, uh, how do I put this? Um, are you familiar with Darwin's observation of the finches in the Galapagos Islands?
Penny: Did they make a movie about it?
Leonard: No.
Penny: Then no.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: If you plan on having children I suggest you switch from briefs to boxers. Your testicles look a tad warm.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: All right, pick a card.
Howard: Okay.
Sheldon: Bippity-boppity-boo.
Howard: What's with the wand and the beep?
Sheldon: The wand is called showmanship, and the beep is none of your business. Oh, excuse me, I'm getting a text message completely unrelated to this magic trick. Oh, look, my dry cleaning's ready. And your card was the five of spades. Ta-da.
Raj: These cards have bar-codes on them. The wand is a reader. It's transmitting to your phone.
Sheldon: I said, ta-da. Show's over.

Quote from Leonard

Leonard: Nice to know everything's OK with your plumbing. Err, the building's plumbing.

Quote from Leonard

Leonard: Hypothetically, if I had access to a lieutenant Uhura uniform, would you wear it?
Priya: Leonard, it is a source of great pain to me and my family that my brother has that outfit in his wardrobe.

Quote from Penny

Penny: You know, well, I'm happy Leonard's found someone. Not that anybody asked.

Quote from Leonard

Priya: It's a little weird your ex-girlfriend hanging out here all the time.
Leonard: I know. I usually never see my ex-girlfriends, unless their hard drives crash.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Pick a card, Sheldon. Now look at it and put it back in the deck. Now do you remember your card? Of course I do, I have an eidetic memory.

Quote from Sheldon

Howard: Hey, Raj, wanna see a new magic trick I've been working on?
Sheldon: Howard, if I may interject here with a piece of friendly advice. Is working on magic tricks really how you want to spend your time? Granted, you're just an engineer, but that doesn't mean you might not someday build a geegaw or a thingamabob that may get you a thank you in someone else's Nobel prize acceptance speech.

Quote from Leonard

Leonard: Well, now hold on, how about this? How about we still hang out, but on the down-low?
Penny: Are you really that kind of guy?
Leonard: No. I actually felt kinda silly just saying on the down-low.
