Young Sheldon: A Stunted Childhood and a Can of Fancy Mixed Nuts

210. A Stunted Childhood and a Can of Fancy Mixed Nuts

Aired December 6, 2018

When Missy and Paige have a sleepover, Sheldon stubbornly refuses to join in with their childish fun. After Paige points out that a stunted childhood can cause people to become maladjusted adults, Sheldon tries to adopt a life of hi-jinks and shenanigans. Meanwhile, Dr. Sturgis decides to learn how to drive and asks Meemaw to be his teacher.

Quote from George Jr.

George Jr.: All right, I'm just gonna come out and ask it: what the heck is a colleague?


Quote from Adult Sheldon

Paige: You know, I read that adults who had a stunted childhood often become social misfits and weirdos.
Sheldon: You didn't read that, you're making it up like your goat story.
Paige: Psychology Magazine, February issue, 1988.
Sheldon: Well, um, that doesn't make it true.
Paige: Guess you'll find out when you're an adult.
Sheldon: I guess I will.
Adult Sheldon: Well, we know how this story ends. I grew up to become a well-adjusted and charming fellow. But at that moment in time, she had me worried.

Quote from Adult Sheldon

Adult Sheldon: And that's how I became the madcap prankster all my friends know and love.

Quote from Dr. John Sturgis

Dr. John Sturgis: Thank you for agreeing to the early-bird dinner. When I eat too late, the food just sits right here.
Meemaw: Yeah, gettin' old is no party.
Dr. John Sturgis: Oh, I've had this problem since I was ten. When I was in grade school, my nickname was Old Burpy.
Meemaw: Well, I will not be calling you that.
Dr. John Sturgis: You can if you'd like.
Meemaw: I'm good.

Quote from Dr. John Sturgis

George Sr.: So, John, how was your first driving lesson?
Dr. John Sturgis: Intense. At one point, I was approaching an intersection. The light was green, but at the last moment, it turned yellow. I didn't know what to do. Should I keep going? Should I stop? There were other cars nearby. Connie was yelling. A glare from the sun was in my eyes.
Sheldon: So, what happened?
Dr. John Sturgis: Somehow, I managed to make it through, turned on my directional, and slowly pulled to the side of the road.
Sheldon: That's how you tell a scary story.
