And he needs your assistance.
Why would he call me?
We don't know.
And if you don't answer the phone, we can't know.
I'm not answering the phone, sheldon.
-接电话 莱纳德 -不
- Answer the phone, leonard. - no!
There, it went to voice mail.
Aren't you going to check your messages?
You have to check your messages, leonard!
The in a
Is one half of a social contract
Which is completed by the checking of the message.
If that contract breaks down,
Then all social contracts break down
And we descend into anarchy.
It must be hell inside your head.
Guys, we have a code red.
You mean "code red" the hospital emergency alert,
"code red" the computer worm, or "code red" the cherry-flavored
Soft drink from the makers of mountain dew?
Look, I was going over the schematics
On my zero-g toilet, and I made a teeny tiny mistake
On the specifications for the diverter valve.
How teeny tiny?
It's gonna fail after about ten flushes.
But the mission is for six months.
Yeah, see, that's the code red.
It's kind of like a jack-in-the-box.
No one knows exactly when, but at some point
Something way worse than a puppet is gonna pop out of that box.
Have you notified nasa?
No, are you crazy? what am I gonna say?
"i screwed up your toilet and pretty soon
"there's gonna be crap floating
All over your nice shiny space station"?
So, what are you gonna do?
I'm gonna figure out how to fix it, then I'll tell them.
So, what do you need us for?
He can't figure out how to fix it.
Hey, you said you were gonna be supportive.
but you have to admit this is pretty damn funny.
It's the juxtaposition of the high-tech nature
Of space exploration against the banality of a malfunctioning toilet
That provides the comic fodder here.
Check your messages.
All right, this is an exact duplicate
Of the wolowitz zero-gravity human waste disposal system
As deployed on the international space station.
Don't you mean the wolowitz zero-gravity human waste distribution system?
Yeah, it's hilarious.
Here's an approximation of the spare parts
Available on the space station.
We gotta find a way, using nothing but this,
To reinforce this so the waste material
Avoids the spinning turbine.
You mean so it doesn't hit the fan?
Yeah, I have to say,
I thought the toilet humor would get less funny with repetition.
Apparently, there is no law
Of diminishing comedic returns with space poop.
-你好 莱纳德 -好啊 斯图尔特
- Hey, leonard. - hey, stuart.
- You busy? - um...
Yeah, it's a regular manhattan project.
Well, tonight's my date with penny
And since we haven't been able to connect by phone...
Yeah, I'm sorry, it's been broken.
- Or e-mail. - yeah, that's broken, too.
Anyway, I was just wondering if you had any last-minute advice.
Uh, all right, well, off the top of my head,
You know, I think the most important thing with penny
Is to go really slow.
I mean, glacial.
You know, guys come onto her all the time,
So, you need to set yourself apart.
You know, be a little shy,
Don't make too much eye contact.
And, you know, treat her with, like, cool detachment
And-and, you know, fear.
Yeah, like, uh,
You're afraid that if you touch her, she'll break.
Well, that plays right into my wheelhouse.
Well, uh, you-you kids have fun tonight.
-多谢 莱纳德 -客气啥
- Thanks, leonard. - uh-huh.
What is that thing anyway?
You don't know what this is?
-不知道 -很好 滚
- No. - good. get out.
Be afraid of penny.
Nice. very crafty.
It wasn't bad advice.
It's just wasn't particularly helpful.
不管怎样 俺娘常说 为一己私欲
For what it's worth, my mother says that when we deceive
for personal gain, we make jesue cry.
All right, what if we use this two-inch pvc
To reinforce the center cross-support?
I mean, it might work for the japanese
And the americans, but have you seen the size
Of the russians they got up there?
This thing has to hold up
Against a hearty potato-based diet.
I feel terrible.
Maybe if you were helping, you'd feel better about yourself.
I deliberately tried to sabotage stuart's date with penny.
Of course you feel terrible.
You completely screwed up your karma, dude.
You don't really believe in that superstition, do you?
It's not superstition.
It's practically newtonian.
For every action,
There's an equal and opposite reaction.
Leonard pretends to be a friend
And acts like a two-faced bitch.
Therefore, he is reborn as a banana slug.
It's actually a very elegant system.
You know, what goes around comes around.
Speaking of what goes around comes around...
Instead of trying to reinforce this structure here,
