(sighs) fine. dr. winkle, what colorful name did you call dr. cooper this time? dr. dumb-ass. dr. cooper dr. winkle apologizes. no, i don't. no, she doesn't. here's the problem. i was clearly signed up to use the mainframe in buckman 204 and dr. winkle just wantonly ripped the sign-up sheet off the wall. it wasn't even an official sign-up sheet. he printed it himself, and he put his name down on every slot for the next six months. sheldon: if it is a crime to ensure that the university's resources are not being squandered chasing subatomic wild geese then i plead guilty.

why should i do something? you're the one who introduced her to online gaming. yes, but you're the one who said hello to her when she moved in. if you'd simply restrained yourself, none of this would be happening. why don't you just tell her to leave you alone? i did, i told her, i texted her, i sent out a very emphatic twitter. i even changed my facebook status to "sheldon cooper wishes penny would leave him alone." i don't know what else to do. well, what am i supposed to do? i don't know, but if you don't figure something out i warn you, i shall become very difficult to live with. you mean up until now we've been experiencing the happy, fun-time sheldon? yes. i'll go talk to her. no, fritz, i need you on my flank. no, i don't know german. flankenzei, flankenzei.

okay, maybe later. hey, guys. hey. hey, what's with him? penny's been keeping him up at night. me, too. but probably in a different way. she's gotten really hooked on age of conan. she's playing nonstop. ah, yes, online gaming addiction. there's nothing worse than having that multiplayer monkey on your back. sheldon, wake up! danger! danger! afternoon, men. sheldon. oh, yeah? well, your attempt at juvenilizing me by excluding me from the set of adult males, just... oh, i'm too tired to do this. that's right i heard you've been pulling all-nighters with middle earth barbie. she comes into my room. no one's supposed to be in my room. well, i would postulate that she's escaping into the online world to compensate for her sexual frustration. i do that, too.
but probably in a different way. that's not what she's doing, leslie. she's just trying to shore up her self-esteem. it has nothing to do with sex. everything has to do with sex. mm, testify. i'm not touching that. leslie, you are way off base here. hang on, leonard. while i have no respect for leslie as a scientist or a human being for that matter, we have to concede her undeniable expertise in the interrelated fields of promiscuity and general sluttiness. my point is that tinker bell just needs to get her some. some what? oh, yes, some sexual intercourse. i'll take the bullet. excuse me, this whole idea is insane. enough debate, i'm going to take action. excuse me. are you currently involved in a sexual relationship? no. would you like to be?
uh... sure, why not? sheldon... puh-puh-puh. can i have your phone number? uh... yeah. yeah. there. problem solved. dumb-ass.
