学校来了位小天才Dennis, Dr. Gablehauser 想让Sheldon和Leonard带Dennis到处逛逛,熟悉环境.Sheldon似乎很不喜欢这位新同事.
SHELDON:Here's the problem with teleportation.
LEONARD:Lay it on me.
SHELDON:Assuming a device could be invented which would identify the state of matter of an individual in one location and transmit that to a distant location for reassembly you wouldn't have transported the individual you would have destroyed him in one location and re-created him in another.
LEONARD:How about that.
SHELDON:I would never use a transporter. The original Sheldon would have to be disintegrated in order to create a new Sheldon.
LEONARD:Would the new Sheldon be in any way an improvement on the old Sheldon?
SHELDON:No, he would be exactly the same.
LEONARD:That is a problem.
SHELDON:So you see it too?
DR.GABLEHAUSER:Dr. Hofstadter, Dr. Cooper.
DR.GABLEHAUSER:Gentlemen, I'd like you to meet Dennis Kim. Dennis is a highlysought-after doctoral candidate. We're hoping to have him do graduate work here.
LEONARD:Graduate work, very impressive.
DR.GABLEHAUSER:And he's only 1 5 years old.
SHELDON:Not bad. I myself started graduate school at 1 4.
DENNIS: Well, I lost a year while my family was tunneling out of North Korea.
DR.GABLEHAUSER:I thought maybe you could show Dennis around. Let him see why we're the best physics research facility in the country.
DENNIS: I know you're not. You don't have an Open Science Grid computer or a free electron laser. The string theory research being done is a dead end.
SHELDON:Excuse me, that is my research, and it is by no means a dead end.
DENNIS: Well, obviously, you don't see it yet, but trust me, you will.
DR.GABLEHAUSER:Dennis, we've discussed this. We're in the process of updating our equipment. We welcome your input on our research goals. We agree to look the other way if you use 20 percent of the money you attract to smuggle your grandfather out of Pyongyang.
