Quote from Howard

Howard: (singing) Alone in my temple in the middle of Peru, A giant stone ball with nothing to do,
Raj: But if you steal my idol, I will roll right over you
All: Cause I'm six tons of granite, And micaceous schist. Yeah, I'm six tons of granite, And micaceous schist,
Bert: I'm gonna crush you, I'm gonna mush you, You took my idol, I'm homicidal, Gonna roll over you till your brains come out, And your bones will crunch and your blood will spout! I'm not just a rock, baby. I'm a boulder.
All: Cause I'm six tons of granite, And micaceous schist. Yeah, I'm six tons of granite, And micaceous schist, Yeah, I'm six tons of granite-

Quote from Raj

Raj: Hey! Look what I got everybody.
Leonard: Newspapers? Did you find a portal back to the 1990s?
Penny: No. If he had that, he'd be trying to prevent NSYNC from breaking up.
Raj: Oh, please. I'm glad they broke up. Otherwise, Justin would never have brought sexy back.

Quote from Sheldon

Mary Cooper: Oh, Shelly. I have bad news. Mr. Watkins passed this morning.
Sheldon: Oh. Oh, I'm-I'm sorry.
Mary Cooper: I know. What are the odds of that?
Sheldon: Call you back.

Quote from Penny

Leonard: Thought you were getting us dinner.
Penny: Sorry. I had to stop at Sheldon's and help him solve string theory.
Amy: What?
Penny: Yeah, turns out the answer's knots.
Leonard: That's cute, but you can't have knots in more than four dimensions.
Penny: Mmm ... you can if you consider them sheets. [chuckling] Good night.

Quote from Howard

Howard: What up, my Hebrews and She-brews?!

Quote from Amy

Amy: Okay, how do you want to play this? Do you want to pretend like nothing's bothering you and blow up later, or do you just want to be a maniac right now?

Quote from Penny

Penny: Wow, I didn't think anything could top last night's spelling bee, but here comes math.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: One thing you can't get on an iPad, the smell of ink and paper. One more reason iPads are better.

Quote from Amy

Sheldon: I have a confession. When I berated Leonard, it was a clever ruse to conceal the fact that I'm not working on anything.
Amy: Well, I think I speak for everyone when I say, "No!"

Quote from Sheldon

Amy: Well, maybe this is the perfect opportunity to take some time for yourself and refocus. I'm sure you'll find something you're excited about.
Sheldon: Thank you, Amy. I don't know what I'd do without you.
[cut to Amy entering Apartment 4A]
Amy: Hey, can I stay here? Sheldon kicked me out.

Quote from Howard

Raj: Hey, uh, what do you think we should open our show with? Uh, "Thor and Doctor Jones" or "Let's Get Astrophysical"
Howard: I don't know. I think we should start with something that gets them up on their feet. Maybe "Sherlock Around the Clock."

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: [cell phone rining] Oh, dang it. Hello, Mother.
Mary Cooper: Hi there, Shelly. You will never believe who I ran into at the barbecue festival.
Sheldon: I am right in the middle of some very important work. I don't have time for this right now.
Mary Cooper: Then why did you answer the phone?
Sheldon: Because you raised me to be polite. Now stop bothering me. [hangs up]

Quote from Sheldon

Penny: [3 knocks] Sheldon? [3 knocks] Sheldon? [3 knocks] Sheldon?
Sheldon: It's annoying when you do it.
