The Big Bang Theory – Pilot

Leonard Hofstadter and Sheldon Cooper are friends, roommates and physics geniuses working at Cal Tech. As such, they are self-professed geeks. Their social companions are Howard Wolowitz and Raj Koothrappali (who can’t speak to women), fellow geniuses at Cal Tech.

Originally from Omaha, Nebraska, beautiful Penny, a waitress at the Cheesecake Factory and an aspiring screenwriter and actress, moves in next door to them in their apartment building. On their initial social interaction – an impromptu lunch in the guys’ apartment.

The guys learn that Penny has a different mentality than them. This difference however does not stop Leonard from being attracted to her. They also learn that Penny is heartbroken from the end of a four year relationship. Just because she asked, Leonard agrees to pick up her television from her ex-boyfriend, with who she is having a dispute about the ownership of said television.

Favorite Quotes:

Leonard: We bought home Indian food, and I know that moving can be stressful and I find that when I’m undergoing stress, good food and company can have a comforting effect. Also curry is a natural laxative, and I don’t have to tell you that a clean colon is, one less thing to worry about.
Sheldon: Leonard, I’m no expert here but I believe in the context of a luncheon invitation, you might want to skip the reference to bowel movements.

Leonard: We need to widen our circle.
Sheldon: I have a very wide circle. I have 212 friends on MySpace.
Leonard: Yes, and you’ve never met one of them.
Sheldon: That’s the beauty of it.

Penny: So, what do you guys do for fun around here?
Sheldon: Well, today we tried masturbating for money.

Sheldon: You’re not done with her, are you?
Leonard: Our babies will be smart AND beautiful.
Sheldon: Not to mention imaginary.
