看生活大爆炸学英语第一季第二集(1)

【剧情介绍】
Sheldon发现Penny的家乱七八糟后,晚上竟然跑到Penny家帮她打扫起来,Leonard发现后,Sheldon还一副义正言辞的样子…

Leonard:Are you insane? You can't just break into a woman's apartment in the middle of the night and clean.
SheldonI had no choice. I couldn't sleep knowing that just outside my bedroom was our living room and just outside our living room was that hallway and immediately adjacent to that hallway was this.
Leonard:Do you realize that if Penny wakes up there is no reasonable explanation as to why we're here?
SheldonI just gave you a reasonable explanation.
Leonard:No, no. You gave me an explanation.Its reasonableness will be determined by a jury of your peers.
SheldonDon't be ridiculous. I have no peers.
Leonard:Sheldon, we have to get out of here.
Sheldonyou might want to speak in a lower register.
Leonard:What?
SheldonEvolution has made women sensitive to high-pitch noises while they sleep so that they'll be roused by a crying baby. If you want to avoid waking her, speak in a lower register.
Leonard:That's ridiculous!
SheldonNo, that's ridiculous.
