Quotes:

Leonard: Sheldon, how could you just sit there and let them spy on me?
Sheldon: They were clever, Leonard, they exploited my complete lack of interest in what your were doing.
Wolowitz: You should thank us. When future generations try to determine why your relationship with Penny crashed and burned, this right here is the black box.
Leonard: What are you talking about? The date went fine.
Raj: Dude, she said she wanted to slow things down.
Leonard: OK, so she said she wants to slow things down. It’s like saying I’m really enjoying this meal, I’m going t slow down and savor it.
Wolowitz: No. It’s like saying this fish tastes bad, so I’m gonna slow down and spit it out.
Raj: You being the fish.
Leonard: I’m not the fish.

Penny: So, do you think that if Leonard and I keep dating he’ll eventually get bored with me?
Sheldon: That depends.
Penny: On what?
Sheldon: Do you have a working knowledge of quantum physics?
Penny: No.
Sheldon: Do you speak Klingon?
Penny: No.
Sheldon: Do you know any card tricks?
Penny: OK, enough! I get it. Leonard has no business being involved with a waitress/actress who felt so insecure that she lied to him about finishing community college.
Sheldon: Why would you lie about that?
Penny: Well he was going on and on about this college and that grad school and I didn’t want him to think I was some stupid loser.
Sheldon: You thought the opposite of stupid loser was community college graduate?
Penny: You know, there are a lot of successful people in the country who are community college graduates.
Sheldon: Yeah, but you are neither.

Penny: If Leonard finds out that I lied, I will absolutely die of embarrassment.
Sheldon: Physiologically impossible.

Sheldon: i.e. I couldn’t become Green Lantern unless I was chosen by the Guardians of Oha, but given enough startup capital and adequate research facility, I could be Batman.

Sheldon: Leonard, I’m moving out.
Leonard: What do you mean you’re moving out? Why?
Sheldon: There doesn’t have to be a reason.
Leonard: Yeah, there kinda does.
Sheldon: Not necessarily. This is a classic example of M√ľnchausen’s Trilemma — Either the reason is predicated on a series of sub-reasons leading to an infinite regression, or it tracts back to arbitrary axiomatic statements, or it’s ultimately circular — i.e. I’m moving out because I’m moving out.
Leonard: I’m still confused.
Sheldon: Leonard, I don’t see how I could have made it any simpler.

Video: Leonard tries to “solve” Penny’s problem by giving her an application to community college.

Episodic Awesomeness:

  • This is the first episode in which the audience sees Raj’s apartment.

Observations/Things to Consider:

  • When Sheldon visits Raj’s apartment, he sits to Raj’s right. This is out of character from “his spot” on the left of a couch.
  • In the middle of the night, how would Wolowitz have gotten Sheldon back to Leonard’s apartment? Wolowitz drives a motorcycle.
