put them under my tree.
You bought me a present?
Why would you do such a thing?
I don't know. 'Cause it's Christmas?
哦 佩妮 我知道你认为自己很大方
Oh, Penny. I know you think you're being generous,
but the foundation of gift-giving is reciprocity.
You haven't given me a gift.
You've given me an obligation.
别难过 佩妮 这是新手常犯的错
Don't feel bad, Penny, it's a classic rookie mistake.
My first Hanukkah with Sheldon,
he yelled at me for eight nights.
Now, hey, it's okay.You don't have to get me anything in return.
Of course I do. The essence of the custom
is that I now have to go out and purchase for you
a gift of commensurate value
and representing the same perceived level of friendship
as that represented by the gift you've given me.
It's no wonder suicide rates skyrocket this time of year.
Okay, you know what? Forget it.
I'm not giving you a present.
太晚了 我都看到了 那个小精灵贴纸
No, it's too late. I see it. That elf sticker
says, "To Sheldon."
The die has been cast.
我知道 有意思 特别是发生在别人身上
I know. It's funny when it's not happening to us.
Sheldon, I am very, very sorry.
别 别 我自找的
No. No, I brought this on myself
by being such an endearing and important part of your life.
I'm going to need a ride to the mall.
It's happening to us.
Are you gonna make it?
Yeah, I guess.
Thanks for letting me try out your motorcycle.
I had no idea it was so heavy.
The thing just fell right over on me, didn't it?
Yeah. Lucky for you it wasn't moving.
-Oh, hey, Leonard. Ooh, are you okay? -Oh, yeah.
It's just a little motorcycle accident.
My God, how fast were you going?
I don't know. It's all such a blur.
Good one. He couldn't even get it started.
Hi. Dave. Hi.
Penny. So it's your motorcycle?
Is it okay?
Lucky for the bike
it landed on my leg.
You mind giving me a hand with speed racer here?
Oh, yeah. Yeah, sure.
So, um, Dave, how do you know Leonard?
I'm a physicist.
No, you're not.
Why is that so surprising?
Uh, well, it's just that the physicists I know
are indoorsy and pale.
I'm not indoorsy.
I just wear the appropriate sun block
because I don't take melanoma lightly.
So, are you
and Leonard working on an experiment together?
Yeah, actually we are.
Yeah, we're examining the radiation levels
of photomultiplier tubes
for a new dark matter detector.
Uh, sweetie, sweetie,
Dave was talking.
You know, I love science.
-Since when? -Since always.
Call me a geek, but I am just nuts
for the whole subatomic- particle thing.
The last thing I would ever call you is a geek.
Ha. Well, that's what I am--
queen of the nerds.
Well, if you like,
I could show you the lab we're working in.
We've got some cool toys, you know-- lasers and stuff.
You know, I have always wanted to see a big science lab.
Leonard, are you okay here? Uh...
-Yeah. I guess. -How 'bout we go see it now?
Maybe afterwards we take the bike up the coast,
We grab a little bite to eat...
Um... Yeah. Yeah, that sounds great.
Let me just get my jacket.
Boy, she'll do, huh?
Yeah, if you like that type.
So, you and her...?
No, just neighbors.
I don't know how you live next door to that
without doing something about it.
science is my lady.
Okay. Let's go.
See you tomorrow, Leonard.
See ya. 'Bye, Penny.
Did you forget your key?
I don't see anything in here a woman would want.
这里有身体乳液 沐浴精油 香皂
You've got lotions and bath oils and soaps.
that's the estrogen hat trick.
What it is is a cacophonous assault
尤加利属植物 月桂树的果实 肉桂和香草
of eucalyptus, bayberry, cinnamon and vanilla.
It's as if my head were trapped in the pajamas of a sultan.
Sheldon, if you don't like this stuff,
let's just go next door and build her a bear.
I told you before, bears are terrifying.
bath stuff. It's perfect!
You got a scented candle, a cleansing buff,
spearmint and green tea scented bath oil, promotes relaxation.
That presupposes Penny is tense.
She knows you. She's tense.
We all are. Buy a basket!
Excuse me, we're ready.
No, we're not.
Let's say for a moment that I accept
the bath item gift hypothesis,
I now lay the following conundrum at your feet:
This one. Let's go.
You put no thought into that.
