* Leslie: I’ll leave the details up to you. I think it’s better if you assume the male role.
* Leonard: What’s so unusual about me having a date?
Sheldon: Well, statistically speaking…
* Leonard: If science ever discovers a second member of your species and would like some privacy I’ll be more than happy to get out your way too.
* Sheldon: Oh please, the only way she can make a contribution to science is if they resume sending chimps into space.
* Sheldon: If you’re having trouble deciding where to sit may I suggest one potato, two potato, the Leslie Winkle methodology?
* Penny: If Leonard and Leslie want to be together there is nothing you can do to stop it.
Sheldon: You continue to underestimate my powers.
* Penny: If you are really Leonard’s friend you will support him no matter who he wants to be with.
