You said clean up.
You can't just throw everything in the closet.
Hey, you can tell me what to do
or you can tell me how to do it,
but you can't do both; this isn't sex.
What if someone looks in there?
They're just coming over for dinner.
No one's gonna look in the closet.
Well, you don't know that.
What if someone's looking for the bathroom
and they open that door?
For all we know, there's a toilet in there somewhere.
Fine. But after tonight,
we need to get a handle on this mess.
You know what we should do?
We should show the closet to Sheldon.
He's like a savant at organizing.
Everything in his apartment has a label on it.
Including his label maker, which has a label
that says "Label Maker."
And if you look really close at that label maker label,
you'll see a label that says "Label."
we can't just ask him to straighten our closet.
No, we wouldn't ask him.
We'd just show him the closet
and let the goblins in his head take it from there.
Hey, guys, come on in.
- Ooh, it smells good. - Thanks.
And, Sheldon, I know tonight's the night you eat Thai food,
so I went to the Asian market, got all the ingredients
and made it from scratch.
Oh, you shouldn't have.
Oh, it's my pleasure.
No, you really shouldn't have.
You stopped and got him takeout?
He kept kicking the back of my seat.
Sheldon, I've been cooking all day.
Well... now don't you feel silly.
Show him the closet.
These spring rolls are amazing.
Good job, Bernadette.
That's the takeout that Sheldon brought.
Oh, well, I'm sure they wouldn't have tasted
nearly as good if I hadn't tried your food first.
Howard, did you want your clothes arranged
seasonally or by color?
Wrong, they'll be arranged seasonally.
Sheldon, aren't you gonna spend a little time with Amy?
Oh, it's okay, I'm used to it.
The other day at Whole Foods, he spent an hour
optimizing the cheese aisle.
Yeah, and some thanks I got.
The assistant manager chased me out
with an artisanal salami.
His quirks just make you love him more.
Someone please agree with me.
It's getting late. Time to go.
Oh, five more minutes.
That's what you said five minutes ago.
Amy and Penny are already in the car.
How come I never get to do anything I want to do?
You know, if he really wants to stay and finish,
I can give him a ride home.
Please, Leonard! He said it's okay!
求你了 莱纳德 他都说没关系了
Wait, I can go home without you? Bye!
等等 可以不用载你回家吗 拜拜
Howard, I have a few questions.
I found three bowling pins.
Now, do you juggle these,
or are you missing seven?
You health nuts kill me.
Oh, my God, it's beautiful!
Look, he found the juggling pins I hid.
Uh, just a couple more items.
Howard, I found this letter from your dad in a box.
Now, based on the content,
it could either be filed...
Whoa, you opened this?
Well, I had to find out if it was personal correspondence
or memorabilia. Now, as I was saying,
- based on the content... - I couldn't be less interested.
Now, come on, I'll take you home.
Howard, don't you want to know what's in the letter?
If I wanted to know, I would've opened it years ago.
The closet looks great.
Let's get out of here.
Wait, can I bring this box
of extra shirt buttons to sort on the ride?
- Do whatever you want. - Thanks.
You know, when I first met Howard,
he would pull his scrotum out of his shorts
and say, "oh, I sat in gum."
然后大喊 "看 我坐到口香糖上了"
What is your point?
Well, it's just kind of weird how grown up he is now.
Happily married guy throwing dinner parties.
Really? You couldn't just say that?
You had to tell the scrotum story?
Trying to paint a picture.
Yeah, it was a nice change of pace
not eating takeout around a coffee table.
Mm, you know, we could throw a dinner party, too.
Maybe even ask everyone to get dressed up.
Just, when you say "Dressed up,"
you mean nice clothes, right?
Not, like, capes and tights and crap?
- Although... - No!
Yeah, I just... couldn't sleep.
Told you you shouldn't have espresso after dinner.
I know the little cups make you feel big,
but it's not worth it.
It's this stupid letter.
You must be curious.
Of course I'm curious.
I haven't seen the man since,
oh, I was a little kid.
And a letter shows up on my 18th birthday?
What's that about?
Why don't you read it?
Maybe he apologizes or explains why he left.
He abandoned me and my mother.
Why does he deserve a chance to explain anything?
So, what do you want to do with it?
Something I should've done a long time ago.
- Really? Are you sure? - Yep.
-真的 你确定吗 -确定
- Feel better? - I do.
Neither one of us is tall enough to reach that.
I can't believe he set it on fire.
Yeah, just seeing that letter really freaked him out.
And he was already having a tough day
'cause he accidentally wore my pants to work.
I don't know why he was upset.
They were bigger on him than me.
Boy, I'm really curious what's in that letter.
Me, too, but I guess now we'll never know.
Well, you said Sheldon read it.
What kind of wife would I be
if I didn't respect my husband's privacy?
What if I ask Sheldon,
you just happen to be in the room?
- That works. - Okay.
Like cleaning out the entire building's belly button.
- Hey, Sheldon. - Oh, hello.
What can I do for you ladies?
You have something we want.
My mother warned me
this is what happens to pretty boys in the big city.
No, we just want information.
Oh, I've got that in spades.
We heard you read the letter from Howard's father.
I can't tell you that.
I'm bound by closet organizer/ organizee confidentiality.
Sheldon, that's not a real thing.
Well, neither is the rule that you have to
hold your girlfriend's hand at the movies. You know.
That doesn't stop you from pawing at me
like you're a bear and I'm a trash can full of sweets.
Why do you even care?
Just tell us what it says.
Control over the information contained in that letter
belongs to Howard.
By happenstance, I came to know it.
That doesn't give me the right to disseminate it freely.
Come on. Look, the letter was found in Bernadette's closet.
Doesn't that count for something?
Are you pointing out that California
is a community property state,
and since Howard and Bernadette are married,
the intellectual property contained in that letter
is jointly owned by the two spouses?
Sometimes I don't give you enough credit, Penny.
Dude, you made the right choice
coming to me for help with this party.
Actually, all I did was invite you.
Well, put your mind at ease.
I'm here to make sure your dinner party
kicks Howard's dinner party's ass.
Now, the first thing we need is a theme.
ah, turn-of-the-century Moulin Rouge.
I'm thinking you need a testosterone patch.
Penny and I just want to do something low-key.
You know, cocktails,
light jazz music, hors d'oeuvres.
"I saw a rerun of Mad Men
and bought some crab puffs from Trader Joe's"?
Hate to miss that.
Hey, where have you been?
If I was prone to sarcasm,
I'd say I was pulling off a major heist
at the museum of laundry baskets.
One, two, three, four, five,
一 二 三 四 五
six, seven, eight, nine, ten.
六 七 八 九 十[愤怒控制]
I meant, "Golly, Sheldon,
我是说 "天啊 谢尔顿
you've been gone a long time."
Oh. Yeah, well, I was waylaid by
Penny, Bernadette and Amy.
They made me reveal confidential information
about Howard's father.
I can't tell you that.
I am bound by closet
organizer/ organizee confidentiality.
Well, come on, we won't tell anyone.
Sorry, badgering me won't work.
What you should have said is,
"It's pointless to keep this a secret
because Penny will tell us."
- Fine, then that. - All right, I'll tell you.
-那我问佩妮 -好吧 我告诉你们
My goodness, everyone's on their game today.
This is really fun.
Yeah, it's nice to get dressed up once in a while.
Yeah, and hors d'oeuvres are delightful.
As is the company.
My shirt is itchy and I wish I were dead.
Hey, uh, listen, everybody.
Before Howard gets here, let's all just agree
to not bring up the letter from his father.
- Of course. - Sure.
can we turn off that Latin orgy music?
Ridiculous that we still have to walk
up all these flights of stairs.
Yeah, try doing it in heels.
There's something I have to tell you.
I know what was in your dad's letter.
Sheldon, I swear to God, I'm gonna kill you!
I made him tell us.
- I know. - Me, too.
Shame on all of you.
Couldn't leave him with one friend, could you?
what's in that letter except for me?
Yes, it's six against one.
Stand down, sir.
How could you do this?
If you want, we could tell you.
No, I don't want to know!
Used me as a human shield?
He looked taller than usual.
- Howard? - In here.
I should have left it alone.
Sorry I ran off like that.
What are you looking at?
Uh, pictures of my dad and me when I was a kid.
- That's nice. - I got to tell you,
as angry as I am at Sheldon for blabbing,
he did a hell of a job organizing this closet.
"Photos of Wolowitz family before father left forever."
Check out nine-year-old Howie with cornrows.
Neither race was happy to see me with those.
- Think you could take a break? - Why?
Got a little surprise for you.
I am in no mood to have sex tonight.
I'll lay there if you absolutely
have to have it, but...
What are you guys doing here?
When you left, you weren't sure whether or not
you wanted to know what was in your dad's letter,
so we came up with kind of a cool solution.
Oh, yeah, what's that?
It occurred to me that knowing and not knowing
can be achieved by creating a macroscopic example
of quantum superposition.
that a physical system exists partially
in all its possible states at once.
We were all thinking it, really.
It was kind of the elephant in the room, so...
Anyway, um, I realize
if we each present you with an account
of what your father wrote to you,
only one of which is true,
and then we don't tell you which one it is,
in a state of epistemic ambivalence.
And I said if it wasn't epistemic,
we might as well not do it.
It was a card for your 18th birthday.
"Happy birthday, Howard.
I love you. Dad."
Oh, and it was a Far Side card,
the one where the frog has its tongue
stuck to the underside of an airplane.
Thinks it's a fly.
Silly frog. So funny.
It was a map leading to the lost treasure
of famous pirate One-Eyed Willy.
That's the plot for Goonies.
-Told you. - Don't.
You didn't know it,
but your father was in the auditorium
at your high school graduation.
And he cried because he was so proud of you.
Or that's complete poppycock which Amy made up.
It still could be the map.
It was a letter explaining
that your dad wasn't who he said he was.
Eventually, his other life caught up to him,
and the only way to keep you and your mom safe
I would like to change mine.
The pirate's name was Peg-Leg Antoine.
Now it's completely different from Goonies.
-No, it's not. - Don't.
Your dad wrote about how family is the most important thing,
and that you should never throw it away like he did.
Inside the envelope was a picture
of your dad holding you the day you were born.
On the back he wrote,
"Howard, my son, my greatest gift."
"霍华德 儿子 你是我最好的礼物"
Which one do you think it is...
Actually, I don't want to know.
want all of them to be true.
Well, one of them is.
Hey, it's still early.
Why don't we go back and have that party?
You know, surprisingly,
uh, the letter from your father
wasn't the most interesting thing
I read in the closet.
Bernadette's diary has some saucy passages.
Sheldon, don't you dare!
Th-There's nothing to worry about.
Your secret's safe with me.
That's more like it.
Although copyright law would allow me to quote snippets
in the context of a review.
Glad you're feeling better.
If I'd known we were gonna be dancing,
would have worn my flats.
This turned out pretty well, huh?
That is, if you've never been to or heard of a party before.
If you'd let me pierce your brain with a hot needle
in the right place, you'd be happy all the time.
I-I have a couple of questions about your closet.
Is there any reason
you're keeping this dead goldfish?
Damn, I forgot to feed him.
And that I had him.
Well, now, did you also have a dog?
Because I found what appears to be
a battery-operated chew toy.
Party's over! Party's over!
