Penny失恋了, Leonard正在纠结该不该去安慰她, Howard 正在为他出馊主意.
Leonard：Okay. Feel better! Bye. She doesn't want to talk.
Penny's emotional responses originate in the primitive portion of the brain known as the amygdale, while speech is centered in the much more recently developed neo-cortex. The former can easily overpower the later, giving scientific credence to the notion of being "rendered speechless." Or maybe she just doesn't want to talk.
Raj：Hey, look, I found an iPod.
Howard：It's smashed beyond repair. What are you gonna do with it?
Raj：What else? Sell it on eBay as "slightly used."
Leonard：It was Penny's boyfriend's. They broke up.
Howard：Apparently, he posted intimate details of their physical relationship on his blog, which I cannot find anywhere.
Leonard：You know what? I'm gonna go back and try talking to her again.
Howard：Good idea. Sit with her, hold her, comfort her. And if the moment feels right, see if you can cop a feel.
Leonard：I'm not going to do that, Howard.
Sheldon：I'm m not aware of any social convention that requires you to intervene at all.
Leonard：What about "damsel in distress"?
Leonard：I don't care. She's upset. I'm going over there.
Howard：Remember to sit on your hands a bit so they're warm.
Leonard：I'm her friend. I'm not going to take advantage of her vulnerability.
Howard：So you're saying if in the depths of despair, she throws herself at you and demands you take her. right there, right now, you'll just walk away?
Leonard：I said I'm her friend, not a gay friend.
