Excerpt from Series 2 Episode 11 – The Bath Item Gift Hypothesis
Sheldon: Oh good, Penny, you’re here to exchange gifts.
You’ll be pleased to know that I’m prepared for whatever you have to offer.
Penny: [handing Sheldon his present] Ok, here.
Sheldon: Hmmm. [starts to open his present]
I should note, I’m having some digestive distress, [Leonard shakes his head no] so if I excuse myself abruptly, don’t be alarmed. [completes opening his present]
Oh, a napkin.
Penny: Turn it over!
Sheldon: [becomes weak at the knees and has to sit down as he reads]
“To Sheldon, Live long and prosper. Leonard Nimoy.”
Penny: Yeah, he came into the restaurant.
Sorry the napkin’s dirty, he wiped his mouth with it.
Sheldon: [gasps] I possess the DNA of Leonard Nimoy?!
Penny: Well…yeah, I guess. But look, he signed it!
Sheldon: [visibly shaking] Do you realize what this means?!?!
All I need is a healthy ovum and I can grow my own Leonard Nimoy!
Penny: Okay, all I’m giving you is the napkin, Sheldon.
