【剧情介绍】

Howard为情“离队”, Sheldon只好叫Penny一起玩Halo, 而Penny有约要和姐妹们去跳舞.

PENNY: Look, why don't we play tomorrow?

SHELDON: Tonight is "Halo" night. It's like talking to a wall.

PENNY: All right, now, Sheldon, you and I are about to have a problem.

LEONARD: Sheldon, remember, we role-played this.

SHELDON: Yes, but you didn't portray her as completely irrational.

PENNY: All right, fellows, I gotta go. But good luck.

LEONARD: Maybe we should've asked if we could go dancing with her and her girlfriend.

SHELDON: Okay, assuming we could dance, which we can't there are three of us and two of them.

LEONARD: So?

SHELDON: It's the Chinese restaurant all over again. I assure you that cutting a dumpling in thirds is child's play compared with three men each attempting to dance with 67 percent of a woman.

LEONARD: For God's sakes, Sheldon, you are driving me crazy.

SHELDON: Your anger is not with me, but with mathematics.

LEONARD: I'm pretty sure my anger is with you.

RAJ: What is happening to us? We're falling apart.

LEONARD: Who are you calling?

SHELDON: The only man who can restore any semblance of balance to our universe.
