Episode Quotes
Bernadette: Quitting would be the worst thing for your relationship.
Leonard: Why?
Bernadette: Because it would make you seem like something she (Penny) already thinks you are.
Leonard: What does she think I am?
Bernadette: How do I put this? She's been known to call you a name that usually applies to a lady part. Or a cat. Or a willow.
Leonard: I can't believe she would say that about me.
Bernadette: If you're gonna cry about it there's tissues in my purse. Unless you got some in yours. Big willow.

Howard: Have you ever played a game with Bernadette?
Amy: No.
Howard: Have you ever gone into a steel cage with a wolverine?

Leonard: I'm okay with you driving my car. I'm not okay with you flying my car.
Bernadette: Don't sweat it. My dad is a cop. He can fix things.
