[at Penny’s Halloween party]
Leonard: I want to get to know Penny’s friends, it’s just I don’t know how to talk to these people.
Sheldon: Well, I actually might be able to help.
Leonard: How so?
Sheldon: Like Jane Goodall observing the apes, I initially saw their interactions as confusing and unstructured but patterns emerge. They have their own language, if you will.
Leonard: Go on.
Sheldon: Well, it seems that the new-comer approaches the existing group with the greeting, “How wasted am I?” which is met with an approving chorus of, “Dude.”
Leonard: Then what happens?
Sheldon: That’s as far as I’ve gotten.

Leonard: This is ridiculous. I’m jumping in.
Sheldon: Good luck.
Leonard: No, you’re coming with me.
Sheldon: Oh, I hardly think so.
Leonard: Come on.
Sheldon: Aren’t you afraid I’ll embarrass you?
Leonard: Yes, but I need a wingman.
Sheldon: Alright, but if we are going to use flight metaphors, I’m much more suited to being the guy from the FAA analyzing wreckage.

Leonard: Yes, but our society has undergone a paradigm shift. In the information age, Sheldon, you and I are the alpha-males. We shouldn’t have to back down.
Sheldon: True. Why don’t you text him [Penny’s ex-boyfriend] that and see if he backs down.
Leonard: No, I’m going to assert my dominance face-to-face.
Sheldon: Face-to-face? Are you going to wait for him to sit down, or are you going to stand on the coffee table?

Kurt [Penny’s ex-boyfriend]: What are you supposed to be? an elf?
Leonard: No, I’m a hobbit.
Kurt: What’s the difference?
Leonard: A hobbit is mortal Halfling inhabitant of Middle Earth, where as an elf is an immortal tall warrior.
Kurt: So why the hell would you want to be a hobbit?

Leonard: What’s that?
Sheldon: Tea. When people are upset, the cultural convention is to bring them hot beverages. There, There. [patting Leonard’s shoulder] You want to talk about it?
Leonard: No.
Sheldon: Good. “There, There” is all I really had.

Leonard: [to Kurt] That’s how we roll in the Shire.
