  4. All right, it’s been fixed, you can see the season 12 Transcripts now.
  5. I left a message for Tripper, I believe it's got something to do with how the Transcript Forum is set up. Once it's fixed, I'll leave a note in here.
  6. OK, as I mentioned, here is the transcript for the first episode of season 12, 1201 The Conjugal Configuration. I'll start working on the second episode next Wednesday.

The Conjugal Configuration Season 12 Episode 01 Teleplay by Story by Steve Holland Chuck Lorre & & Maria Ferrari Eric Kaplan & & Jeremy Howe Tara Hernandez COLD OPEN SCENE A ATOM CUT JIM PARSONS: Previously on The Big Bang Theory. CUT TO APARTMENT 4A (Amy, Mr Fowler, Mrs Fowler) MRS FOWLER WITH HER ARM AROUND AMY’S NECK, FACING MR FOWLER MRS FOWLER: Can you believed our little lamb is finally getting married…… MR FOWLER TAKES STEP TOWARDS THE TWO, MRS FOWLER LETS GO OF AMY, FACES HER, WITH BACK TO MR FOWLER. MRS FOWLER:…… he can’t believe it. And neither can I. MRS FOWLER, AMY HUG. AMY: Hi dad, how are you doing? MR FOWLER, ACTS LIKE HE’S HANGING FROM THE END OF A ROPE, HE IS HOLDING. HE STOPS, BEFORE MR FOWLER TURNS AROUND. ZOOM CUT TO CALTECH ATHENAEUM (Mark Hamill, Amy, Sheldon) MARK HAMILL OFFICIATING AT AMY AND SHELDON’S WEDDING.

END OF FLASHBACK ATOM CUT WITH AN “AND NOW…” TO SCENE B HOTEL ROOM (Sheldon and Amy) AMY SLEEPING, SHELDON GENTLY SHAKING HER TO WAKE HER. SHELDON: Good morning wife. AMY(smiles, laughs): Good morning husband. AMY TURNS IN BED TO FACE SHELDON. AMY: I can believe we’re actually married. SHELDON: It’s official. According to tradition, we should hang the bedsheets outside, so the villagers can see we consummated. SHELDON GETS OUT OF BED, WALKS TO THE WINDOW. AMY: I don’t think that’s appropriate, considering where we’re starting our honeymoon. SHELDON: Well, I suppose you’re right…… SHELDON OPENS THE CURTAINS, LEGOLAND IS OUTSIDE THEIR WINDOW. SHELDON:…… although, when you think about it, Lego is the perfect metaphor, for marital congress. Two pieces that interlock, with a satisfying snap. AMY: Oh, that’s the sound you were making. SHELDON WALKS TO THE BED SHELDON: Oh, I almost forgot, while you were sleeping, I ordered room service. SHELDON PICKS UP A COVERED SERVING TRAY, AND BRINGS IT TO AMY. AMY: Really?

PENNY (frustrated): Yes, yes you are. BERNADETTE: Would you like us to leave, so you and Leonard can talk about all the things you have in common? LEONARD: Ha ha, she called your bluff. RAJ: Something pretty cool happened, channel three asked me to be on the news tomorrow night, to talk about the meteor shower. LEONARD: Well, that’s great. PENNY: Heyyyyyyy. BERNADETTE: Congratulations. HOWARD: You know, that’s how Neil deGrasse Tyson got his start. He went from the Hayden Planetarium, to guesting on the local news, to ruining everyone’s favorite movies on the internet. RAJ: Now it’s happening to me. Oooooo, I should probably make a list of all the scientific inaccuracies in Momma Mia Two. PENNY: You’re going to go on live TV, and admit you’ve seen that movie? RAJ: Hey, your husbands the one who took me. PENNY GIVE LEONARD A WTF STARE. LEOANRD: Meryl Streep and Cher? Yeah, I saw it.

PENNY: Real or Lego? LEONARD: Lego. BERNADETTE: So, what should we do? Should someone go check it out. RAJ: I would, but I got to be on TV tomorrow. Got to protect the money.

LEONARD: Okay, let’s go into our apartment…… LEONARD REINSERTS KEY AND STARTS TURNING THE KEY IN THE LOCK LEONARD:……We’ll lock the door, we’ll call the police…… PENNY STARTS BANGING ON THE DOOR PENNY(starts yelling): Hello, anyone in there? DOOR OPENS, MR FOWLER APPEARS. MR FOWLER: Yes? PENNY: Oh, Mr Fowler, sorry, we didn’t know you were here. We actually thought someone was breaking in. RAJ: And we were ready to take them down. MR FOWLER: Amy asked me to water her plants. PENNY: She doesn’t have any plants. MR FOWLER: Oh, well, you’ve caught me in a lie. MR FOWLER TURNS, CLOSES DOOR. MR FOWLER: Have a good day. MR FOWLER WALKS DOWN STAIRS. HOWARD: That was weird, right? LEONARD: Was it? I…I…I honestly can’t tell anymore. LEONARD OPENS DOOR, THEY ALL START TO ENTER. MR FOWLER: Hey, did you even see Mamma Mia One? MR FOWLER: Didn’t need to, the sequel stands on it’s own.

SHELDON WALKS TO BELLBOY, SHELDON GIVES BELLBOY TIP SHELDON: And, of course, coitus. AMY EMBARRASSED, BELLBOY LOOKS SHOCKED. BELLBOY: Well, enjoy, New York. And, I guess, coitus. BELLBOY LEAVES, SHELDON CLOSES DOOR. AMY: Really, Sheldon? You want to do it again? (Amy smiles) SHELDON: Don’t act surprised, it’s clearly marked on the schedule. SHELDON HOLDS UP PHONE, SHOWING SCHEDULE. SHELDON: Now, shall we, steam the wrinkles out of our wizard robes, or make vigorous, socially sanctioned love. Either way, I can check something off my to do list. AMY(sounding puzzled): Socially sanction……(understanding) oh, wow, yeah, there it is right there. SCENE E ATOM CUT TO APARTMENT 4A (Leonard, Penny) LEONARD ON COUCH, PENNY PUTTING PLATE IN THE FRIDGE, THEN WALKS TOWARD COUCH. LEONARD: Uh, hurry, Raj is on next. PENNY: I can’t believe they cancelled Vampire Diaries, but they’ll show this. PENNY POINTS AT TV, THEN SITS ON COUCH, IN SHELDON’S SPOT. LEONARD (deadpan): This is the news. PENNY: And that was a woman torn between two hunky vampires. What is your point? SOUND OF POUNDING ON A DOOR. UNKNOWN VOICE: Larry, I know you’re in there. PENNY: Is that Amy’s mom? MORE POUNDING. UNKNOWN VOICE: Let me in. UNKNOWN VOICE (yells and pounds): Let. UNKNOWN VOICE (yells and pounds): Me. UNKNOWN VOICE (yells and pounds): In. LEONARD: Either that or the big bad wolf. MORE POUNDING.

GIVES HIM A “WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU” LOOK. LEONARD: I mean he came by to water the imaginary plants, but then he left. MRS FOWLER: You are so naive. Blondie here is going to chew you up and spit you out. PENNY: Well, don’t tell him. LEONARD GIVES PENNY A STRNGE LOOK. MRS FOWLER WAVES HER HAND MRS FOWLER: Come on, you have an extra key, open it up. LEONARD REACHES IN, GETS KEY, GOES TO 4B TO OPEN IT LEONARD: All right, but I’m telling you he’s not in there. LEONARD OPENS 4B, ALL THREE ENTER, LEONARD TURNS LIGHT ON. LEONARD: There, see? MRS FOWLER: Ohhhhh, he’s in here, I can smell his axe body spray. MRS FOLWER LOOKING AROUND IN THE LIVING ROOM LEONARD: He wears axe body spray. PENNY: You happy? You smell like Amy’s dad. MRS FOLWER MOVES INTO THE BEDROOM MRS FOWLER: Larry! PENNY(whispers): Come on. PENNY STARTS INTO BEDROOM. STOPS WHEN LEONARD SPEAKS. LEONARD: Shouldn’t we mind our own business? PENNY: Wow, sometimes, it’s like you don’t know me at all. PENNY HEADS INTO BEDROOM, LEONARD FOLLOWS. MRS FOWLER LOOKING IN THE CLOSET PENNY: See, he not here. MRS FOWLER: You don’t know him like I do. MRS FOLWER MOVES INTO THE BATHROOM LEONARD: To be fair, we don’t know either of you. PENNY AND LEONARD MOVE INTO THE BATHROOM. MRS FOWLER PULLS ONE SIDE OF THE SHOWER CURTAIN, TO THE OTHER SIDE.

WOMAN WAVES RAJ’S CONCERNS AWAY WOMAN: Not important. What can we expect to see from this meteor shower? RAJ: Well, I think we can count on a lot of flaming gas, which is what you would have gotten from your first choice, Neil deGrasse Tyson. RESET CUT TO WOLOWITZ LIVING ROOM HOWARD: Pull up, Raj. Pull up. RESET CUT TO TV SCREEN WOMAN: Sounds like there is no love lost between you and Dr Tyson. RAJ: Oh, no, I love Neil. I mean, not as much as Neil loves Neil, but who does, right?

AMY PUT PURSE ON THE DESK, AND THEN HER AND SHELDON TAKE OFF THEIR ROBES. SHELDON: You yell Harry, watch out, he looks right at you. And, not just Harry, everyone on stage. AMY(annoyed): At the risk of sounding redundant, uh huh. SHELDON: All, right, it’s a bit late, but I did block out the rest of the evening for conjugal relations. Should we shower? I mean before, not during, that’s how you fall and break a hip. AMY: You know, I’m a little jet laggy, maybe we can revisit this in the morning. SHELDON: Oh, no can do, if we miss tonight, it’s not scheduled until Thursday at six. And that’ll have to be no frills, because we got 6:30 reservation at Benihanna. AMY: Sheldon, do we really have to do this on a schedule? SHELDON: Are you suggesting spontaneity? AMY: I… I guess, yeah. SHELDON: So, now that we’re married, sex can occur at any time? Like, we could be brushing out teeth and suddenly your minty fresh tongue is in my mouth? No thank you. AMY: Really? Would it be so bad to mix it up a little? SHELDON: Mix it up? Who are you Betty Crocker? SHELDON STARTS WALKING PASSED AMY AMY: Where are you going? SHELDON: To take a shower. Now that sex can happen at any time, I’ll always have to be ready.

HOWARD BERNADETTE SIT ON COUCH, START EATING HOWARD: Yeah, I cut you a lot of slack, cause you come from another country, but, I mean, you’ve been here a long time. BERNADETTE: Raj, you need to apologize to Dr Tyson. RAJ: Whyyyyyy? This could be good for me. Everybody loves a good twitter feud. Neil and I could be like the new Katie Perry and Taylor Swift. BERNADETTE: Come on Raj, you’re better than this. RAJ: Leave room for desert, cause I’m going to make you eat those words. RAJ START TYPING ON HIS PHONE.

AMY (irritated): Just let it go. SHELDON: Is everything all right? You seem testy this morning. AMY (testily): I’m not testy. SHELDON: I’ll have to take your word for it, there’s no test for testy. (beat) Is it possible that you’re sexually frustrated? AMY (testily): Okay, now I’m testy.

LEONARD: I…I… I’m serious, and I’m nothing like Amy’s dad. He’s a mousey, little man who can’t stand up for himself. PENNY GIVE LEONARD A “WANNA BET” LOOK. LEONARD: My point is, you’re not like her, so we’re not like them. PENNY (a little sad): Well, thirty years from now are you going to hide from me because I’m so scary? LEONARD: Penny, I don’t think you’re scary. Yes, I flinch when you make sudden moves, but that says more about my childhood, than you. PENNY (touched): Awwwwwww.

SHELDON: When I was little, and people asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I’d always say, a brain, in a jar. AMY: Sure. SHELDON: But, I want to be a good husband to you. And, intimacy, is a part of that. SHELDON IS MOVING THE HOT DOGS BACK AND FORTH, IN FRONT OF AMY’S FACE. AMY: Please put those down. SHELDON PUTS HOT DOGS ON THE BENCH. SHELDON: I’m just worried, that if I don’t schedule our bedroom endeavors, then I may not think about them. And, you’ll grow cold and distant, and seek solace in the arms of a heavily muscled longshoreman. AMY: Where would I find a longshoreman? SHELDON: Along the shore, it’s in the name. AMY (resigned) : Sheldon, I could never be with anybody but you. SHELDON: That’s good to know. I wouldn’t want to fight a man, who’s brave enough to touch a fish. AMY: How’s this for a compromise? Make all the schedules you want, just don’t tell me about them. SHELDON: Excellent. I’ll create an algorithm, that will create a pseudorandom schedule. Eh, do you know why it won’t be a true random schedule. AMY: Because the generation of true random numbers remains an unsolved problem in computer science. SHELDON: Come with me. AMY: Where are we going? SHELDON: To the hotel room. And when we get there, I’m going to need you to say that again, except naked. AMY GASPS. THEY WALK OFF.

If you see something you don't understand, please contact me and I'll add it to this, if I can. The discussion for the season 12 transcripts can be found in the main season 12 forum, under the topic Transcript Discussion.
  9. This is the discussion thread for the season 12 transcripts. I had originally planned to finished season 11 first, then move on to season 12. I changed my mind. I will be doing the first five of season 12, and then alternating between season 11 and season 12, until I finish them. I will then move on to other seasons. I may not do them in chronological order, for instance, I'm interested in seasons four through six, so I may do those first. I'll see how it goes and how it strikes me.

  11. The Collaboration Contamination Season 11 Episode 05 Teleplay by Story by Dave Goetsch Steve Molaro & & Maria Ferrari Steve Holland & & Jeremy Howe Eric Kaplan COLD OPEN SCENE A ATOM CUT TO Apartment 4A (Leonard, Penny, Sheldon, Amy, Raj, Howard, Bernadette) ALL SITTING AROUND LIVING ROOM COFFEE TABLE, EATING, BERNADETTE WALKS IN FROM HALLWAY. BERNADETTE: Thanks for letting me put Halley in your room. LEONARD: Sure, no problem. BERNADETTE STOPS BY PENNY’S CHAIR. BERNADETTE: Er, and Penny she kinda threw up on your stuffed bear. BERNADETTE CONTINUES TO COUCH, SITS. PENNY: Oh, that’s okay. LEONARD: Hey, hey, that’s an Ewok, and it’s mine PENNY(smiling): Which is why it’s okay. SHELDON: See, he gets Ewoks in his bed. AMY: You got Chewbacca, that’s enough. RAJ: I used to have the stuffed raccoon, from Gardians of the Galaxy, but Cinnamon licked it raw. HOWARD: There’s a time and place for your randy dog stories, and it’s never and nowhere. PENNY: Yeah, no more stories about sex, so Amy, that brings us to you. AMY: Well, at work we’ve be doing some interesting research with neuroprosthetics. PENNY: Neat, I’ve been rewatching the OC, so we’re all leading productive lives. AMY: We’ve been working on a computer interface, that can use brainwave patterns to control robotic limbs. But, we’re have a little trouble localizing the signal from the EEG cap. HOWARD: Welp, have you thought about a phased array of sensors, for better localization? AMY: Actually, that never occurred to me. PENNY: It never occurred to me, I would miss the Ewok, conversation. LEONARD: Good, cause I just bought another one on Amazon. AMY: You know, I could use an engineer on this project. SHELDON: Well this works out great, Howard’s an engineer. I’m sure he knows someone who’s qualified. HOWARD: She’s talking about me, Sheldon. I’m perfectly qualified. BERNADETTE: Yeah, Howie’s the world’s best engineer, it says so right on his coffee mug. PENNY: Awwwwww, you got him a mug? RAJ: I did. But it’s not a competition. BERNADETTE: Yeah, I lost that battle years ago. AMY: So, Howard, are you interested? HOWARD: Are you kidding? If I could control robot arms, with my brain, I be able to do so many things. SHELDON: Really? Because you’ve been controlling human arms through your brain for years, and not much has come of it. CUT TO OPENING TITLES ACT 1 ATOM CUT TO SCENE B APARTMENT 4A (Leonard Penny) PENNY SITTING AT ISLAND DRINKING COFFEE AND READING. LEONARD ENTERS FROM HALLWAY STANDS NEAR PENNY. LEONARD: Hey, whatcha reading? PENNY: A parenting book LEONARD: Oh, my god, are……are we…… PENNY: What? Nooooooooo. You think this is how I would tell you? LEONARD: Well, yo……yo……your sitting there with a book, it felt like anything was possible. I don’t know… LEONARD GETS A CUP, WALKS TO ISLAND PENNY (miffed): Bernadette left it here. LEONARD: Well, anything interesting? LEONARD POURS COFFEE PENNY: Well, I just saw a picture of a baby’s head crowning, so I hope you enjoyed sex, because we’re done with that. SHELDON ENTERS THROUGH FRONT DOOR. LEONARD CONTINUES TO POUR COFFEE SHELDON: Hello LEONARD: Hey Sheldon, what’s up? PENNY: Hey. SHELDON WALKS TO ISLAND. SHELDON: Eh, remember how disappointed you were, when Amy started driving me to work? LEONARD: Sure, sometimes people smile a big smile of disappointment. SHELDON: Yeah, well good news, Amy had to go in early to show Howard around her lab. So, you get to drive me. LEONARD’S FACE CHANGES TO DISAPPOINTMENT. PENNY: Awwwww, his smile of disappointment has turned into a frown of joy. LEONARD: It’s fine, I’ve been driving him for years, what’s one more day. SHELDON: And, a new car game we can play, it’s called what siren am I? LEONARD: Kill me. ATOM CUT TO SCENE C AMY’S LAB (Amy, Howard) BOTH ARE GOING THROUGH THE LAB, LOOKING AT THE EQUIPMENT. HOWARD: Amy, your lab is amazing. A CR fluoroscope, a cranial ultrasound, ohhhhhh, and look at that coffee maker. AMY: I know, on our expense report, I listed it as “Edwardo”, my Columbian Lab assistant. BOTH WALK OVER TO THE SKULL CAP. HOWARD: So, this is it. HOWARD TAKES THE SKULL CAP OFF OF IT’S STAND. AMY: Yes. We are using it to map brain wave patterns, and then converting them to electrical impulses, that can be used to control anything, from wheelchairs to robots HOWARD: Based on that ring on your finger, I’d say you’re pretty good at controlling robots. AMY: Careful, that’s my fiancé you’re talking about. (beat) And I can program him to hurt you. ATOM CUT TO SCENE D LEONARD’S CAR (Leonard, Sheldon) LEONARD DRIVING, SHELDON MAKING A SIREN NOISE. LEONARD: I don’t know, a…a…a French police? SHELDON: Oh, so close, Belgian Ambulance. LEONARD MAKES FACE, SHAKES HEAD. SHELDON: All right, you ready for your next one? Just a warning, this one is a little annoying. SHELDON STARTS MAKING A SIREN SOUND LEONARD: eh…eh…eh… let’s take a little……little break, I’m getting a headache. SHELDON (disappointed): Ohhhhhh, right in the middle of our fun game. LEONARD: Yeah, weird. So, Howard and Amy working together, that’s interesting, huh? SHELDON: Eh, it’s all right, I suppose. Look, when usually when Amy complains about her coworkers, I just tune her out, but now, I’ll be able to join in, and pound away. LEONARD: You’re not jealous, of Howard, are you? SHELDON: Of course not. The only engineer I’m jealous of, is the one who blows the train whistle. Ooooooo, that a just gave me an idea for a new game. What whistle am I? LEONARD: Train. SHELDON: For your information, it was going to be teakettle. But, the teakettle was on a train, so I’ll give it to you. ATOM CUT TO SCENE E AMY’S LAB (Howard, Amy) BOTH SITTING AT A LAB TABLE, HOWARD ON A COMPUTER, AMY WRITING ON PIECE OF PAPER. HOWARD: If we add phase detection to your EEG sensors, I’ll have to rewrite most of the code. AMY: Can you do that? HOWARD: Well, these hands were made to do three things, close up magic, writing code, and the dirty shadow puppet show that got me kicked out of Hebrew school. SHELDON ENTERS LAB. SHELDON: Hello. AMY TURNS AND WALKS TWO STEPS TOWARD SHELDON, AMY (smiling): Hi, what a nice surprise. SHELDON: I just came by to see how you two were getting along. AMY: Well, everything is going really great. SHELDON: Awwwwww, that’s nice to hear. SHELDON BLINKING HIS EYES SHELDON: I was hoping you two would enjoy working together. SHELDON STOPS BLINKING, AND NODS AMY: What’s with the blinking. SHELDON: It’s Morse code. So we can talk about…… SHELDON MAKES A FACE AND NODS TOWARD HOWARD. SHELDON: Without hurting…… SHELDON MAKES A FACE AND NODS TOWARD HOWARD. SHELDON: ……feelings. AMY: Sheldon, I don’t know Morse code. HOWARD: I do, and if you have something to say, you can say it to my face. SHELDON: Oh. (beat) All right. SHELDON STARTS BLINKING HIS EYES, FINALLY STOPS HOWARD: I’m a little rusty, can you say that again? SHELDON STARTS BLINKING HIS EYES ATOM CUT TO SCENE F APARTMENT 4A (Penny) PENNY ON COUCH, READING.

LEONARD WALKS OVER TO THE FRIDGE, PENNY STOPS READING PENNY: Sheldon, honey, if you want to join us for dinner, you’re more than welcome. SHELDON: Oh, thank you,I don’t think I’d be very good company tonight. LEONARD: Well, then out you go. LEONARD WAVE HIS HAND AT SHELDON. PENNY: Okay, what is going on? SHELDON: Ever since Amy started working with Howard, she hasn’t been home. PENNY: Didn’t that just start this morning? SHELDON: And has she been home? PENNY: You know, that would frustrate me. PENNY STANDS AND WALKS TO SHELDON. PENNY: Does it frustrate you? SHELDON: It does. PENNY: I get that. You know, it’s okay to feel frustrated, when things aren’t going your way. SHELDON: I suppose. Ahhhh, maybe it’s not that big of deal. LEONARD LOOKS OVER, PUZZLED, CURIOUS. PENNY: No, no, no, your feelings are valid. Now, why don’t you go wash up, and, we’ll call you when dinner’s ready. SHELDON LOOKS AT PENNY, LEONARD LOOKS AT PENNY IN CONFUSION. SHELDON: Okay. SHELDON LEAVES, PENNY CLOSES THE DOOR. LEONARD: What did you do…are you a witch? PENNY: Well, I’ve been reading Bernadette’s parenting book. It’s like the answer key, to the Sheldon test. LEONARD: That’s amazing. PENNY: Yeah, I know, but it’s only birth to five, what do we do when he turns six? LEONARD: Take him to the zoo and leave him there. ATOM CUT TO SCENE G WOLOWITZ KITCHEN (Bernadette) BERNADETTE AT KITCHEN TABLE, TYPING ON COMPUTER, RAJ ENTERS. RAJ: Hey Bernadette. BERNADETTE: Hey Raj. Howard’s not here. RAJ: I know.

Like, do you need help with anything? BERNADETTE: Thank you. There are a few things around the house that I've been waiting for Howard to get to. The smoke alarms really need… RAJ: No, I mean emotionally. How are you feeling? BERNADETTE: Like you’re not really here to help me. RAJ: Wow, still snippy. BERNADETTE: Everything’s fine.

AMY: I just got home, I’m tired…… SHELDON: Of Howard, I know. So, how about you and me make some beautiful science together? AMY: Sheldon, I want to work on this with you, just not tonight. What if we get up early, and do it in the morning. I promise, I’ll be way more into it. SHELDON: You know what? There was a time that you would have been happy to stay up and collaborate, all night with me. And then wake up in the morning and do it some more. AMY (sighs): Fine, but can we make it quick? SHELDON: No, if you’re going to make me do all the work, then go to bed. But, don’t be surprised if you walk out here and catch me doing it myself.

LEONARD: Well, they did just introduce the middle finger emoji, if it’s not for this, I don’t know what it’s for. PENNY: No, no, no, he’ll just thing that means, be there in a minute. PENNY WALKS OVER TO COFFEE TABLE, PICKS UP BOOK. FLIPS THROUGH IT PENNY: Maybe there’s something in the book that will help. LEONARD: It’s worth a shot PENNY: Okay, let’s see, let’s see. Biting other children? LEONARD: Mmmm, sometimes, but problem for another day PENNY: Wait, wait, wait, here we go, let him have ownership of his choices, allow him to choose from options that are acceptable to you. LEONARD: I don’t know, I’ll give it a try…… LEONARD STARTS TEXTING SHELDON LEONARD: …… I can drive you in two hours, or you can take an Uber. PENNY: Good, now he feels like he has a choice. [SFX] MESSAGE RECIEVED ON LEONARD’S PHONE. LEONARD: He’s going to take an Uber PENNY: Wow, it worked. LEONARD: Unless he bites the driver, yeah.

BERNADETTE: I’m really busy. I don’t have time to listen to you complain. SHELDON: Hey, you’re complaining too. Sheldon, why are you here? Sheldon, the apple sauce is for the baby. BERNADETTE: What do you want? SHELDON: I just wish I could make Howard feel as angry as I’m feeling. BERNADETTE CLOSES THE COMPUTER.

SHELDON: Oooooooo, what kind of chores? BERNADETTE: Well, you could change the batteries in the smoke detectors. That would drive him crazy. SHELDON: That’s great. Oh, he’ll be so mad, smoke will be coming out of his ears. An, an, and, the smoke detectors will detect it. Well, now, hold on. Why did you ask me about Tom Sawyer? BERNADETTE: I’m just interested in you. SHELDON: Well, you are sweeter than your applesauce. ATOM CUT TO SCENE L AMY’S LAB (Amy, Howard) HOWARD LOOKING AT DATA ON THE COMPUTER, AMY WALKS TO TABLE WITH NOTEBOOK. HOWARD: Okay, I’m going to extend the wait time and have them pull the A to D converter at the top of the loop, instead of the bottom. AMY: That’s impressive. HOWARD: You think that’s impressive, take apart that brain model. AMY SEPARATES THE PIECES OF THE MODEL, FINDS A THREE OF CLUBS PLAYING CARD. AMY: Oh my God, three of clubs, that was my card. HOWARD: I used to make it appear in my pants, but HR said I had to stop doing that. AMY PUTS MODEL BACK TOGETHER, PUTS IT ON IT’S STAND. AMY: So, how much longer until we can test it. HOWARD: Well, it needs to compile, so it’s going to be a few minutes. AMY: Sounds like we’re earned ourselves a break. HOWARD: You want to hear some Neil Sadaka?

HOWARD: Hey. RAJ: You say your busy as bees, yet here you are, dancing. Although I suppose, bees do dance, but their dance, lets other bees know where the pollen is, and yours does not. So, my logic, despite that slight detour, does track. HOWARD: I’m just waiting for my code to compile. What are you doing here? RAJ: I stopped by to see if you wanted to go to the movies with me. HOWARD: I’d love to, but we’re just about to test the interface, it could take a while. RAJ: Okay, buddy, it’s not my place, but Bernadette’s been feeling a little abandoned, with all the hours you’ve been putting in. AMY: You just asked him to go to the movies.

SHELDON: Woah, that’s what he things, where’s your steel wool. BERNADETTE HOLDS UP A PAD OF STEEL WOOL. BERNADETTE: Right here. SHELDON: We make quite the team. BERNADETTE: Sure do. BERNADETTE CONTINUES EATING ICECREAM, SHELDON GOES AND LOOKS UNDER THE SINK, RAJ ENTERS.

Howard’s getting Amy used to laughing and listening to music. What if she expects that madness at home? PENNY: You know, that is a good point. I’m really proud of the way that you express your feelings. SHELDON: Thank you, I’m just so angry. PENNY: You know, everyone gets angry. Even mommies and daddies. LEONARD: You can’t think this is the right time to validate his behavior. PENNY PULLS LEONARD SEVERAL STEPS AWAY FROM SHELDON PENNY: Okay, what about presenting a united front. LEONARD: What about you coddling him, and he’s never gonna learn. PENNY: Look, you sound frustrated, and I’m really proud of the way you’re able to state your opinion. LEONARD: Thank you. (beat) (angry) What, no, no. Don’t use that book on me. SHELDON: Wai, wai, what book? LEONARD: Penny’s been using one of Bernadette’s parenting books on you. PENNY: What? So has he. SHELDON: What makes you think you can treat me like a child. LEONARD PENNY GIVE SHELDON A WTF STARE(2 beats) LEONARD: Your shampoo comes in a Big Bird bottle.

I think you’re just upset because there are some things I’m better than you at. LEONARD: Well, you can’t end a sentence with a preposition, so, clearly, not grammar. LEONARD GET’S BOTTLE OF WATER. PENNY: If you’re so smart, was that a smart thing to say? LEONARD: That depends, before I said it, was sex tonight still on the table? PENNY (angry): NO! LEONARD: Then that’s fine. LEONARD CLOSES DOOR TO FRIDGE, WALKS AWAY. PENNY LOOKS ANGRY. ZOOM CUT TO SCENE R AMY’S LAB (Amy, Howard) BOTH SITTING AT WORKBENCH, LOOKING AT COMPUTER.

Oh, he’s upset with Leonard and Penny. [SFX] TONE FROM AMY’S PHONE AMY: And Bernadette. [SFX] TONE FROM AMY’S PHONE AMY: And Mark Twain.

  12. Here's a nice article on Kaley's work, post Big Bang.
  13. That is not Marla Gibbs. Her name is Vernee Watson. (there are various spellings, including hyphenating the last name of Johnson, when she was married). She was also a nurse in the hospital when Sheldon's barber, Tony D'nofrio, was in the hospital (0518 The Werewolf Transformation) and was the nurse at the Hospital when Howard ate the candy bar that had Peanuts in it, on Leonard's birthday (0116. The Peanut Reaction). She was also in the unaired Pilot. Vernee goes all the way back to 1993-94 with Chuck Lorre. She is currently in the main cast for Lorre's Bob Hearts Abishola. Her first appearance in one of Lorre's shows, was in Grace Under Fire (Bernadette's dad, played by Casey Sander, was second billed in that show and was in all 112 shows). Besides the two Big Bang related shows, she has also appeared in Lorre's Two and A Half Men, Mike and Molly, and Dharma and Gregg. She currently has almost 180 acting credits, going back to 1970.
  14. The transcript for the fourth episode of Season 11, 1104 The Explosion Implosion, is now up in the Season 11 Transcript Sub-forum.
  15. In season 11 (1116 The Neonatal Nomenclature) both Amy and Leonard wanted Elliot, for the boys name. I think that is where Amy's comment (You're lucky I let you name him Leonard) comes from. So, if it's a boy, I would think it would be Elliot, since Penny was pregnant first. As for another boys name, or girl names, I have some ideas, but I'm holding back on those, simply because I will be using them in my current fan fic, with Penny pregnant. And don't want to give anything away, just yet, as I haven't disclosed the sex yet. And for those reading and wondering, you have a ways to go yet. I haven't decided on if they will decide to . I just finished the first draft of chapter 40, and they still don't know the sex. MUHAHAHAHAHAH
