202. A Rival Prodigy and Sir Isaac Neutron

Aired September 27, 2018

When Dr. Sturgis invites a brilliant ten-year-old girl, Paige, to audit his course, Sheldon is racked with feelings of jealousy. Meemaw decides to talk to John about Sheldon's situation, while Mary is excited to meet another family dealing with the pressures of raising a special child.

Quote from Dr. John Sturgis

Dr. John Sturgis: Hello, Mary. This is John Sturgis, Sheldon's professor and your mother's lover.
Mary: Hi. And "John" was more than enough.


Quote from Dr. John Sturgis

Dr. John Sturgis: Did you know that there's a type of vanilla flavoring derived from the anal glands of the North American beaver?
Meemaw: That seems like a fact you could have shared before we started eating.
Dr. John Sturgis: It isn't used very often. I understand it's difficult to, uh, milk the little sacs.
Meemaw: Cool. Okay, new topic.

Quote from Dr. John Sturgis

Dr. John Sturgis: See, this is why we're great together. You teach me about social etiquette, and I teach you about beaver anuses.
Meemaw: [CHUCKLES] It is magical.
Dr. John Sturgis: Did you know "ani" is also acceptable as the plural of "anus"?
Meemaw: And the magic continues.

Quote from Adult Sheldon

Adult Sheldon: Not since sharing a uterus with my twin sister have I been so unhappy sitting next to someone.

Quote from Sheldon

Mary: Come on, Shelly. Maybe you'll end up being friends.
Sheldon: I don't like her, I'm not going to like her, and Tam is my friend. I don't need another one.
Mary: You can have more than one friend. I'm sure Tam has other friends.
Sheldon: No, I'm all he's got. And even I avoid him half the time.

Quote from George Jr.

George Jr.: What are you doing?
Sheldon: Suppressing my emotions.
George Jr.: Oh, yeah? Suppress this. [BELCHES] [BLOWS] [WHISPERS] Hot dogs.

Quote from Mary

Mary: He loves being organised.
George Sr.: Boy, does he. We can't go to the grocery store without him making sure that all the labels are facing the right way.
Mary: Oh, the stock boys there are always so happy to see him.
Linda: [LAUGHING] That's adorable.
George Sr.: Well, it wasn't adorable when we redid our shower and he wouldn't use it 'cause two of the tiles were crooked.
Mary: He took baths in the sink until we got it fixed.

Quote from Missy

Erica: I love that song.
Missy: I have a cassette of it, but I recorded it off the radio. You can hear Sheldon in the background saying stuff about Sir Isaac Neutron.

Quote from George Jr.

Missy: Why do grownups do this? They love to stick random kids together and expect them to just be friends.
Erica: I know. I hate that.
George Jr.: Fresh Prince is right. Parents just don't understand.

Quote from Dr. John Sturgis

Sheldon: How come you never mentioned she was coming to this class?
Dr. John Sturgis: I thought it would be a fun surprise.
Sheldon: I don't like surprises.
Dr. John Sturgis: Neither do I.
Sheldon: Then why did you do it?
Dr. John Sturgis: Some people like surprises.
Paige: I love surprises.
Dr. John Sturgis: Did you enjoy this one?
Paige: Yes.
Dr. John Sturgis: A 50% success rate. Not bad.
