PENNY: Okay,well,I'll just,um,go eat by myself.
LEONARD:Penny,you don't have to do that.
PENNY: Oh,it's okay,between him not talking,him talking and him...I'm better off alone. Good-bye,you poor, strange little man.
RAJ: She's so considerate.
LEONARD: So what's your news?
RAJ: Or as I call it,Planet Bollywood. Anyway, because of my discovery,Peoplemagazine is naming me one of their 30 under 30 to watch.
LEONARD: that's incredible.
SHELDON: Excuse me,30 what under 30 what to watch what?
RAJ: 30 visionaries under 30 years of age to watch as they challenge the preconceptions of their fields.
SHELDON: If I had a million guesses,I never would have gotten that.
RAJ: It's pretty cool. They've got me in with a guy who's doing something about hunger in Indonesia, and a psychotherapist who's using dolphins to rehabilitate prisoners, and Ellen Page,star of the charming independent film,Juno.
HOWARD: Oh,I'd so do her.
LEONARD: You'd do the dolphins.
HOWARD:Do I get an honorable mention for designing the telescope camera mounting bracket you used?
RAJ: Sorry, it's not part of my heartwarming and personal narrative in which a humble boy from New Delhi overcame poverty and prejudice and journeyed to America to reach for the stars.
HOWARD: Poverty? Your father's a gynecologist. He drives a Bentley.
RAJ: It's a lease.
SHELDON: I'm confused. Was there some sort of peer review committee to determine which scientists would be included?
RAJ: Peer review? It's People magazine. People picked me.
SHELDON: What people?
RAJ: The people fromPeople.
SHELDON: Yeah,but exactly who are these people? What are their credentials? How are they qualified? What makes accidentally noticing a hunk of rock that's been traipsing around the solar system for billions of years more noteworthy than any other scientific accomplishment made by someone under 30?
