Sheldon: You know, I’ve been thinking about time travel again.
Leonard: Why? Did you hit a roadblock with invisibility?
Sheldon: Put it on the back burner.  Anyway, it occurs to me, if I ever did perfect a time machine, I would just go into the past and give it to myself, thus eliminating the need for me to invent it in the first place.
Leonard: Interesting.
Sheldon: Yeah. It really takes the pressure off.

Leonard: Howard brought a date?
Sheldon: A more plausible explanation is that his work in robotics has made an amazing leap forward.

Leonard: You’re making eggs for breakfast?
Sheldon: This isn’t breakfast; it’s an experiment.
Leonard: Huh. ’cause it looks a lot like breakfast.
Sheldon: I finally have time to test my hypothesis about the separation of the water molecules from the egg proteins and its impact vis-a-vis taste.
Leonard: Sounds yummy.  I look forward to your work with bacon.
Sheldon: As do I.

[In Penny’s car]
Sheldon: Slow down. Slow down. Slow down.
Penny: We’re fine.
Sheldon: You’re not leaving yourself enough space between cars.
Penny: Oh, sure I am.
Sheldon: No. No, let me do that math for you.  This car weighs, let’s say 4,000 lbs.  Now add 140 for me, 120 for you.
Penny: 120?
Sheldon: Oh, I’m sorry.  Did I insult you? Is your body mass somehow tied into your self-worth?
Penny: Well, yeah.
Sheldon: Interesting.  Anyway, that gives us a total weight of, let’s say, 4,400 lbs.
Penny: Let’s say 4,390
Sheldon: [Looking at odometer] Fine. If we’re traveling forward at…Good Lord, 51 mph. Now let’s assume that your brakes are new and the calipers are aligned.  Still, by the time we come to a stop we’ll be occupying the same space as that Buick in front of us, an impossibility that nature will quickly resolve into death, mutilation…Oh! Look! They built a new Putt-Putt course.

[In the grocery store]
Sheldon: Oh, boy.
Penny: What now?
Sheldon: Well, there’s some value to taking a multivitamin, but the human body can only absorb so much.  What you’re buying here are the ingredients for very expensive urine.
Penny: Well, maybe that’s what I was going for.
Sheldon: Well then you’ll want some manganese.

[returning from the grocery store]
Sheldon: There are a lot of advantages to buying in bulk.  For example, I noticed that you purchase your tampons one-month supply at a time.
Penny: What?
Sheldon: Think about it.  It’s a product that doesn’t spoil, and you’re going to be needing them for at least the next thirty years.
Penny: You want me to buy thirty-years worth of tampons?
Sheldon: Thirty…Thirty-five…when did your mother go into menopause?
Penny: OK, I’m not talking about this with you.
Sheldon: Oh, Penny.  This is a natural human process, and we’re talking about statistically significant savings.  Now, if you assume fifteen tampons per cycle and a 28-day cycle…are you fairly regular?
[Penny shuts door in Sheldon’s face]
Sheldon: OK. No warehouse store, but we’re still on for Putt-Putt Golf, right?

Leonard: What’s with the fish?
Sheldon: It’s an experiment.
Leonard: What happened to your scrambled egg research?
Sheldon: Oh, it was a dead-end. Scrambled eggs are as good as they’re ever going to be.
Leonard: So…fish?
Sheldon: I read an article about Japanese scientists who inserted DNA from luminous jellyfish into other animals, and I thought, “Hey,” fish nightlights.
