Favorite Quotes:

* Sheldon: Is it wrong to say I love our killer robot?

* Leonard: A killer robot. We built it.
Penny: Well, it almost killed me.
Sheldon: If it wanted to kill you, you’d be dead.

* Penny: I know you think you are a smooth-talking ladies man, but you are just pathetic and creepy.

* Penny: Flirting? You think I am flirting with you? I am not flirting with you. No woman is ever going to flirt with you. You’re just going to grow old and die alone.

* Kripke: We are all pathetic and creepy and can’t get girls. That’s why we fight robots.

* Howard’s Mom: She ran past me. Was I supposed to tackle her?

* Penny: I’ve been informed that you have feelings and apparently, I’ve hurt them.

* Leonard: You want to prepare him? Install a bladder and a pair of pants so he can wet himself.

* Howard: Look at me. What chance do I have if I don’t try too hard?

* Sheldon: I’d rather see MONTE dead than in your hands.
Kripke: That could be easily arranged.

* Sheldon: I did this. MONTE was killed by my hubris and my pride.


The guys have built a robot for battle. They can’t decide what to attack with the robot first. Leonard suggests the toaster oven. Everyone puts on safety goggles. Howard operates the robot and cuts the toaster oven into several pieces. Penny is going up the stairs. The robot busts through the door and she runs down the stairs screaming. The guys go out in the hall. Penny what is going on. Sheldon explains the robot is for an upcoming robot contest. Howard tells her a little about it and then asks her to go with him. She’s not amused. He continues hitting on her. Leonard tells him to stop. However, Penny is not in the mood to put up with Howard. She takes him down with harsh words and goes completely off on him. He finally realizes she is serious, not flirting with him. She then takes it to a whole new level. Everyone is left speechless. Howard leaves. The next day, Howard is in bed feeling sorry for himself. He didn’t go to work. Leonard calls the house looking for him. Howard and his mom argue. Kripke speaks with the guys at lunch.

Penny tries to apologize. He gets a bit of an attitude with her and kicks her out. He breaks down into tears and she goes back in. The other three look up Kripke’s robot. It’s not good. It destroyed an automobile. Sheldon decides to upgrade the robot himself, but he can’t open the toolbox. Meanwhile, Howard is crying on Penny’s shoulder. Then he sings a creepy song about a girl. And he is finally up to 10th grade. She tries to build him back up. He moves to kiss her, and she punches him. The time has come for the robot battle. Sheldon is trying to outwit Kripke.
