The Big Bang Theory: The Proton Regeneration

1106. The Proton Regeneration

Aired November 2, 2017

When Sheldon learns that Professor Proton's show is being redeveloped, he decides to audition for the role and ends up in competition with Wil Wheaton. Meanwhile, Penny takes care of Halley when Howard and Bernadette are put on bed rest.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Until next week, this is Professor Proton saying, 01000010 01111001 01100101. That's "Bye" in ASCII binary, or good-binary.

Quote from Penny

Sheldon: Well, it should be a scientist I respect. You know, someone with a pleasing voice and symmetrical facial features.
Bernadette: Is he talking about himself?
Penny: If he's talking, he's talking about himself.

Quote from Howard

Sheldon: They're going to start making Professor Proton's science show again.
Bernadette: I thought he passed away.
Howard: He did. He was cremated, and his remains were put in a baking soda volcano.

Quote from Sheldon

Amy: And rolling.
Sheldon: Hello. I am theoretical physicist, Dr. Sheldon Cooper, auditioning for the role of Professor Proton.
Now, excuse me while I get into character. (Turns around and back. In the same monotonous voice) Hello, I am Professor Proton.

Quote from Amy

Amy: Well, what was wrong with it? You know, did you find it borderline psychotic? I mean, I liked that about it, but you guys discuss.

Quote from Penny

Leonard: Do you remember when you were a kid and you'd watch Professor Proton?
Sheldon: Of course.
Leonard: Well, did he ever make you-- I don't know-- hate science and the people who do it?
Sheldon: What are you saying?
Leonard: I just think it would be better if your contempt for children wasn't so much in the foreground.
Sheldon: Well, you want me to lie?
Penny: Well, it's not lying. It's acting. Sheldon Cooper may not like kids, but Professor Proton loves them.
Sheldon: Interesting. You know, I hadn't really thought of it that way. It's similar to how I'm afraid of dogs, but my D&D character likes dogs, you know? But he's allergic, so he can't be around them.
Penny: Why don't we have a dog?

Quote from Sheldon

Wil Wheaton: Hey, Sheldon. What's up?
Sheldon: I need an acting coach.
Wil Wheaton: Oh.
Sheldon: Would you give me Patrick Stewart's number?
Wil Wheaton: No.
Sheldon: Fine, I guess you can do it.

Quote from Leonard

Sheldon: Ugh.
Leonard: You okay?
Sheldon: No. No, all these comments online about Wil, they're nothing but supportive and kind. Where's the mean, snarky Internet that shows up every time I get a haircut?
Leonard: You know that's us, right?

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Well, luckily, I got the number of the company who's trying to reboot the show, so I need you all to call and register your displeasure.
Raj: Sheldon, no one's gonna do that.
Sheldon: Not true. I know of three calls they've received already: a Southern gentleman, um, a Cockney chimney sweep, and, uh, Mr. T, hmm? Who - spoiler alert - pities the fool who tries to reboot that show.

Quote from Sheldon

Wil Wheaton: Did you ever consider that maybe Arthur would be happy to know that his show has outlived him?
Sheldon: I doubt it. He was kind of a mean old crank.

Quote from Penny

Penny: Uh, no. No, baby. I'm not your mama. Your mama's the nice lady we're gonna go see right now so I can rub this in her face. Do you hear that, suckers? She called me Mama!

Quote from Leonard

Leonard: What about tiresome lunatic with a bad haircut? Has he called yet?

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Some things shouldn't be rebooted. Some things were perfect the way they were. Like the walled city of York, it was a delight. But New York? Blech.

Quote from Penny

Bernadette: Howie, slow down.
Howard: I can't. I'm not allowed to eat for 12 hours before my surgery, and I only got two more minutes.
Leonard: What surgery are you having?
Raj: I'm stress eating. My best friend's getting a vasectomy tomorrow.
Penny: And you're sad you won't be able to bear his child?

Quote from Sheldon

Amy: Okay, you ready?
Sheldon: Yeah, almost. I'm working on my facial expressions. See, uh, I've got interested. Hmm.
I've got very interested. Hmm.
Oh, and, uh, enraged.
Amy: Why would you be enraged?
Sheldon: Better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.

Quote from Amy

Sheldon: So, what do you think?
Amy: Well, I already told him that I loved it, but if you found it confusing or dangerous or, I don't know, three to four times too long, now is the time to share.

Quote from Sheldon

Leonard: Hey, you can always reshoot it.
Sheldon: Mm, I suppose. And, you know, maybe I could even get some tips from someone who's acted professionally.
Penny: Oh. Sheldon, obviously, I'd be happy to help you out.
Sheldon: I don't know what to say.

Quote from Howard

Bernadette: Hi.
Howard: Hey, how was the doctor?
Bernadette: Good, but I have some news.
Howard: Don't say twins. Don't say twins. Don't say twins. Don't say twins.
Bernadette: It's not twins.
Howard: Oh. I mean, because I would have loved them both.

Quote from Howard

Penny: I thought Raj was helping you out.
Howard: No, he had to work. Plus, he has a quota for the amount of Indian servant jokes he can tolerate, and, apparently, I filled it.

Quote from Raj

Leonard: Would you ever get a vasectomy?
Raj: Uh, in case you haven't noticed, Indians aren't too big on birth control. There's probably, like, a million more of us since we started this conversation.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Come on. How many times have we banded together to try to save a show that we loved? Let's shake things up and try to kill one.

Quote from Sheldon

Leonard: Isn't the important thing that there's a show to get kids excited about science?
Sheldon: Who cares about kids and what they like? This is about me and something I liked when ... when I was a kid.

Quote from Leonard

Raj: What if the reboot is great?
Sheldon: That's even worse. If-if I like it, I'll feel like I'm being disloyal to Arthur. He was a mentor and a friend, and I won't toss him aside for some Hollywood pretty boy like Wil Wheaton.
Raj: It's hard to argue with him.
Leonard: Because he makes no sense? Yeah.

Quote from Sheldon

Wil Wheaton: Sheldon, I promise that I will work my hardest to make this show great so that a whole new generation of kids will grow up and they will be able to say that Professor Proton was the reason they got into science.
Sheldon: Wow, that was very persuasive.
Wil Wheaton: Thanks.
Sheldon: But I won't be seduced by your acting skills nor your movie star charisma. There's only one Professor Proton, and he had neither of those things.

Quote from Howard

Bernadette: Can you get us a little snack?
Penny: You sure you don't want your spy to do it?
Howard: What are you talking about?
Penny: You really don't trust me? You had to have Amy stop by?
Bernadette: We trust you.
Howard: Yeah. You were a terrible waitress, and we still asked you to get us a snack.

Quote from Penny

Penny: Auntie Penny's here. Shh. Let's get you changed. Your mommy and daddy say they trust me, but they're full of the same stuff your diaper is.
