Aired November 16, 2017

Leonard and Howard are angry with Sheldon when they learn he has been working with the military behind their backs. Meanwhile, Raj's relationship with Ruchi is called into question when a bed-ridden Bernadette fears she is trying to steal her job.

Quote from Leonard

Howard: Why would the military want Sheldon?
Leonard: I don't know. Target practice?

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: And worse than that, Edison filmed the first on-screen kiss, so he's basically a pornographer. Although every time I put that in Wikipedia, someone takes it out.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Can you believe they said I was just like Edison? Yeah, and in front of a lady, no less.

Quote from Raj

Raj: All I'm saying is before you attack Ruchi, maybe you should take a long hard look in the mirror, because you know what you'll see, apart from radiant skin and luxuriously thick hair? Hypocrisy!
Bernadette: It is thick.

Quote from Penny

Leonard: It's the greatest scientific feud of all time. I mean, you can forget about Leibniz and Newton.
Penny: Done.

Quote from Penny

Penny: So, Tesla's the one that invented the electric car?
Sheldon: (laughs) No, Penny. No, the car is just named after him.
Penny: Okay, you don't have to be so smug about it. You know, you went to see that movie It because you thought it was about scary I.T. guys.

Quote from Howard

Raj: Can we start the movie? Before Sheldon gets here?
Howard: Last time we did that, he didn't talk to us for a month. So do it!

Quote from Raj

Leonard: Edison was kind of a publicity hog and a bully.
Raj: Yeah, he electrocuted an elephant named Topsy just to make himself famous. If I had an elephant named Topsy, he would want for nothing. Also, he'd be named Jumbo.

Quote from Penny

Penny: You know, that documentary last night was actually better than I thought it would be.
Leonard: Really? Should've been about Samuel Morse the way they telegraphed that ending.
Penny: I already pretended to laugh at that joke once. Do I have to do it again?
Leonard: Yeah, I'd appreciate it. (chuckles)
Penny: (forced laugh) Samuel Morse. You kill me.

Quote from Penny

Sheldon: Leonard, can you drive me to work?
Leonard: Yeah, sure. Oh, hey, the guys and I were talking about going to see the Tesla coil at the observatory later on, if you want to join.
Sheldon: Oh, I'm sorry, I can't. I'm busy.
Leonard: Why? What are you doing?
Penny: Leonard, what are you doing? He said he can't go. Make a sad face, move on.

Quote from Bernadette

Bernadette: Hey, what are you two doing here?
Ruchi: We won't stay long. I just wanted to drop something off from me and the girls at work.
Bernadette: None of the girls at work like me enough to get me a gift.
Ruchi: Okay, so you'll know why everyone at the office has the same handwriting.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: You know whose fault this is?
Amy: I do. Yours.
Sheldon: No, my mother's. "Go make friends, Sheldon." What happens? 20 years later, they call me names.

Quote from Sheldon

Amy: I don't think what they called you is the point here.
Sheldon: Oh, yeah? How would you feel if I called you the name of a neuroscientist you didn't like?
Amy: Do you know the name of any neuroscientist?
Sheldon: Of course.
Amy: Not me?
Sheldon: Then no.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: Do you think they're right, Amy? Do you think I'm like Edison?
Amy: Sheldon, I don't think you're upset because of what kind of scientist they said you're like. I think you're upset because your friends' feelings got hurt.
Sheldon: You're right. I care too much about other people's feelings. It's always been my fatal flaw.
Amy: Sheldon, I don't think-
Sheldon: No, no, not now, Amy. I'm growing as a person.

Quote from Raj

Raj: Ah, that was fun. Put her there, buddy.
Ruchi: I am not fist bumping you after we have sex.
Raj: You're the one who wanted to keep things casual.
Ruchi: There's a difference between casual and weird.
Raj: Not the way I do it.

Quote from Raj

Raj: I want you to know, I did what you asked. I talked to Ruchi and found out what's going on at work.
Bernadette: So is she trying to steal my projects?
Raj: No, not trying to, sounds like it's a done deal. Here, have a brownie.
Bernadette: I'm gonna kill her.
Raj: Okay, don't take this out on Ruchi. Is she trying to take your job? Yes. Is she parking in your space? Yes.
Did she get a laugh at a meeting yesterday by calling you "Pregnadette"? Big one. But you would've done the exact same thing, and you know it.
