If you're lucky, maybe she'll show you
the PowerPoint presentation.
I'm sorry, it's on my other laptop.
You'll have to be more specific.
Uh, what's new with you?
Oh, well, I've been having some fascinating menopausal symptoms recently.
Maybe something less personal.
Your Uncle Floyd died.
Oh, my God.
His heart stopped beating.
I have to urinate.
What a remarkable woman.
Yeah, I-I thought you guys might hit it off.
I envy you your childhood.
I hate to tell you, but the only warm memories
I have of my childhood are of my Uncle Floyd.
You're clearly misremembering.
Your mother is brilliant,
And I'm betting she never hit you with a Bible because
you wouldn't eat your Brussels sprouts.
Sheldon, you don't give your mother enough credit.
She's warm, she's loving,
she doesn't glue electrodes to your head
to measure your brain waves while potty training.
You were lucky.
When I was a kid, if I wanted an EEG,
I had to attach my own electrodes.
So, Dr. Hofstadter,
Leonard rarely talks about
his incredibly successful brother and sister.
拜托 霍华德 别提这个了
Please, don't go there, Howard.
I understand that,
不像莱纳德 他们 都是各自领域的权威人物
unlike Leonard, they're at the top of their respective fields.
Boy, you suck.
Well, Leonard's younger brother, Michael,
is a tenured law professor at Harvard,
and his sister just successfully grew
a human pancreas in an adolescent gibbon.
So, she's close to curing diabetes?
Why else would you grow a pancreas in a teenaged gibbon?
Wow, you must be very proud.
They're not my accomplishments.
I have to urinate.
Why are you doing this?
You know the rules.
You brought your mom to work-- you must suffer.
Leonard, I had no idea
your siblings were so much more successful than you.
Yeah, you're like the Jar Jar Binks of the Hofstadter family.
Oh, meesa think yousa lookin' so so sad.
You know, rather than mock me, my friends might realize
that this is difficult and try to help me through it.
Nope, I think mocking you is more fun.
Next time, don't yousa bring mama to work.
That was fast.
Oh, the middle stall was occupied.
I'll have to try again later.
That's totally understandable.
In bladder voiding, as in real estate,
it's location, location, location.
So, where were we?
霍华德还和老妈住在一起 而拉杰不喝醉 就不会和女人说话
Howard lives with his mother and Raj can't speak to women unless he's drunk.
Selective mutism is quite rare.
On the other hand, an adult Jewish male
living with his mother is so common
it borders on sociological cliché.
It's just temporary; I pay rent.
He lives in the same room where his bassinet was.
You know, both selective mutism
and an inability to separate from one's mother
can stem from a pathological fear of women.
It might explain why
the two of you have created an ersatz homosexual marriage
to satisfy your need for intimacy.
That's basically what I just said.
You brought your husband to work.
You know the rules.
Meesa thinking yousa looking pretty sad now too, betcha, betcha.
Leonard, it's 1:00.
Weren't you going to show me your laboratory at 1:00?
There's no hurry, Mother.
Tell them more about their secret love for each other.
But it's 1:00.
You were going to show me your laboratory at 1:00.
Her reasoning is unassailable.
It is 1:00.
Fine. Let's go.
I think you'll find my work pretty interesting.
I'm attempting to replicate the dark matter signal
found in sodium iodide crystals by the Italians.
So, no original research?
Well, what's the point of my seeing it?
I could just read the paper the Italians wrote.
Just for the record,
we're not in an ersatz homosexual relationship.
Well, then why didn't you say that to her?
Why is it always my responsibility?
It's not always your responsibility.
I swear, this is the same thing you did at the comic book store last week.
I can't believe you're bringing that up.
I didn't bring it up. You did.
We'll talk about this later.
You always say that, but we never do.
You went to the comic book store without me.
You got alcohol?
Your mom still here? Yep.
Come on in.
Wait, wait, she's not gonna come here looking for you, is she?
Relax. She took Sheldon to the hospital to get a brain scan.
Oh, my God. What happened?
Nothing. Mother likes looking at brains
and Sheldon likes getting his brain scanned.
Geez, what a fun couple.
She's only been here a day and a half
and I'm seriously considering alcoholism
as a new career path.
Hey, I talked to her for five minutes yesterday
and I've been half bombed ever since.
