If you haven’t perused the Cool TV Props shop for any gift ideas recently—you really should, if not—then you haven’t seen any of the quotes from the Big Bang Theory’s “Comebacks from Sheldon and the C-Men” poster. And this can, for once, help you now: we’re about to play a little game.
Are you a big (bang) enough fan to guess the episode from the following quips? We’re about to find out. Here are some of the highlights from the poster, now available in the store:
Q: “12 years after high school and I’m still at the nerd table.”
A: Season 4, Episode 10—The Alien Parasite Hypothesis.
Sheldon and the gang are discussing which radioactive animal they’d rather become in the event of a lab accident.
Q: “But you love your spot.” “No. I love my mother. My feelings for my spot are much greater.”
A: Season 4, Episode 7—The Apology Insufficiency
Sheldon makes Howard apologize to him in the school cafeteria by giving him his “spot” on the couch. The couch cushion was “merely symbolic.”
Q: “I’d make fun of Sheldon for having girl problems if I wasn’t in shock that Sheldon has girl problems.”
A: Season 5, Episode 19—The Weekend Vortex
Sheldon is searching in vain for a gift suitable for a birthday party. A 93-year-old-woman’s birthday party. He had no success at the model train store, nor Radio Shack.
Q: “Hey, why am I in charge of phone support? Seems a bit racist.”
A: Season 4, Episode 12—The Bus Pants Utilization
The apartment, plus Penny, sit down to develop a new phone app. Sheldon puts Raj in charge of customer service, a position he indignantly shoots down.
Was it just “randomization,” or was Season 4 simply loaded with funnier comebacks than all the others? Any other fans have a different favorite season? Here’s to waiting to see if the current run maintains the hallmark.
