看生活大爆炸学英语第二季第三集

【剧情介绍】

Sheldon帮Penny在社交相亲网站上挑了一位男伴Tom,想通过这种方式帮Penny脱离网络游戏的苦海,而Penny一心只在游戏上,而这位Tom兄也被Penny的邋遢样子吓到(小编不由得想起多年前盛行的网友见面,真是有人欢喜有人忧啊…).

LEONARD: Hi,Tom. Sheldon. Didn't I explain to you about your little mistake in the cafeteria?

SHELDON: Yes,you were very clear. As was everyone else at the table. Tom,however, has been chosen by science as a suitable mate for Penny.

LEONARD: Chosen by science?

SHELDON: Well,what passes for science on dating sites. They claim to use heuristic algorithms,but it may well be hokum.

LEONARD: You got Penny to sign up for online dating?

SHELDON: No,of course not. See,I used trickery and deceit.

LEONARD: This is bad.

SHELDON: Tom is a paramedic with the fire department, but he's going to med school at night.He likes the outdoors and,uh,strong women who initiate sex.

LEONARD: Really,really bad.

SHELDON: I'm surprised you struck out with Penny. Apparently,she's a big ol' five.

PENNY: Sheldon, what do you want?

SHELDON: Oh,good,you got my note. Penny,I'd like you to meet Tom. Penny, this is Tom. Tom, may I present Penny.

TOM: Hi,Penny.

PENNY: Yeah,hey. Listen.as long as I'm here,I'm on a quest with a bunch of news. They don't know what they're doing. We've got one assassin,three spell casters and no tank.

SHELDON: Can we talk about this later?

PENNY: No,no,no,no. I need you now.

SHELDON: Wouldn't you prefer to socialize with Tom,who is a sexually passive outdoorsman?

PENNY: Whatever. I'll figure it out myself.

TOM: Bye,Penny. I'm sorry,dude,she didn't look anything like her picture.

LEONARD: They never do.
