Notable Quotes

Sheldon: Oh, there's my missing neutrino. You were hiding from me as an unbalanced charge, weren't you, you subatomic dickens. Leonard: [He and Howard arrive.] Sheldon. Sheldon: Look, I found my missing neutrino! Howard: Good, we can take its picture off the milk carton.

Sheldon: [In response to Raj's arrogance.] There's a tribe in Papua New Guinea where, when a hunter flaunts his success to the rest of the village, they kill him and drive away evil spirits with a drum made of his skin. Superstitious nonsense, of course - but one can see their point.
