Previously on The Big Bang Theory:
This is just a minor setback.
No, it's not, okay?
I've been out here for, like, ten years.
I have nothing to show for it.
will you marry me?
Did you seriously just say, "Um..."?
- It's an outrage. - I know.
The university-- they think they can do whatever they want.
We just have to sit there and take it.
You need to let it go, Sheldon.
You work tirelessly for someone, and this is what you get.
They're just making you use your vacation days!
But I don't want a vacation.
Okay, listen, I don't mean to diminish what you're going through,
but I'm a little distracted right now.
So, Penny proposed, you didn't say yes,
and now you think you may have lost her love forever.
How does this compare to me being forced
to relax for a few days?
- It doesn't! - Thank you!
I'm gonna go talk to Penny.
I'm going to go inside, put on my coziest pajamas,
curl up with a good book
and wait for this nightmare to be over.
Hey. Look, I'm sorry I didn't text you back.
I just needed some time to think.
- Okay. - Here. Come in.
-没事 -来 进来吧
Look, if you want to break up, just say it.
- Leonard... - No, no, no, no. I take it back.
-莱纳德... -别别别 我收回那句话
Don't say it. Just-just hate me, but stay with me.
千万别分手 恨我就好 别离开我
It worked for my parents.
Listen, I don't want to break up with you.
So, it's cool if I cry a little?
Yeah, I probably wouldn't.
Look, you did the right thing last night.
I was just frustrated because my career is going nowhere.
Look, I get it, and I want you to know
that I support whatever you want to do.
Great, because I've been thinking,
if I really want this acting thing to work,
I need to focus all my energy on it.
I should quit waitressing at The Cheesecake Factory.
- That-That's a big step. - I know.
So, you know, before making any rash...
- I already quit. - And I support you!
- Come on, take me to work with you. - No.
-好嘛 带我跟你去上班 -不行
- You're on vacation. - Please.
What if there's a big breakthrough in science today
and I'm not there to see it?
Do you really think there's gonna be a breakthrough
without you there to do it?
No. I was just tricking you.
- Take me with you.- No!
- Please. - No!
Too bad. I'm coming with you.
- Oh, Sheldon, stay! - But...
-谢尔顿 停 -但是...
I'm going to work.
- Hey. - Sorry. Did I startle you?
-你好啊 -抱歉 我吓到你了吗
Yes, but at this point, pretty much any customer does.
What can I do for you?
Well, I need a little help.
I accidentally destroyed one of Howard's comic books this morning,
and I was hoping I could replace it.
Wow. What happened?
Batman got his ass kicked by my curling iron.
Well, don't let The Riddler know that.
It's a comic book joke.
Or maybe it's not.
Do you have this one?
Uh, well, it's-it's pretty rare.
Can you give me a few days to track it down?
Ooh, I was kind of hoping to get it
before Howie comes home from work.
Oh. What's the hurry?
Well, he's always saying
I should be more careful with my curling iron,
and it seems like a dangerous precedent
to let him think he can be right.
Well, I'll do what I can,
but I can't make any promises.
You know, I do work at a pharmaceutical company.
If you can make this happen today,
I can hook you up with anxiety medication,
- antidepressants. - Really?
Do you have any of these?
Hello, Mr. Rat Brain.
Not so bitey without the rest of the rat
to back us up now, are we?
Hey, what brings you guys here?
Well, we were just on our way to lunch
and wanted to see if you'd like to join.
Because Sheldon's not here this week,
and you don't think I have any other options?
I'm just kidding. I'll get my purse.
I'm sorry. I didn't know you had any company.
Uh, Bert, this is Howard and Rajesh.
Guys, this is Bert.
- Hey. Good to see you. - Hey.
Anyway, I wanted to show you
this tourmalinated quartz that we got in the lab.
- Bert works for the geology department. - Yeah.
You know what, uh, geologists and Bon Jovi have in common?
You're both into rock?
Oh, you forgot your quartz.
I want you to have it.
Yeah, he's nice because he likes you.
What?! No, he doesn't.
He brought you a pretty rock.
So? He does that every day...Oh.
You know, if you'd rather skip lunch
and hang out with your boyfriend Bert, it's totally okay.
He's not my boyfriend.
Are you sure? He's tall, pale and awkward.
你确定吗 他个高 肤白 人怪
That sounds like your type.
Should someone as lonely as you really be making fun of me?
Yeah, grow up, Howard. God.
没错 霍华德 你成熟点好不好
What do I do? I don't want to hurt his feelings.
Maybe the problem is he thinks you're available.
Does he know you're dating Sheldon?
I guess it hasn't come up.
And does Sheldon know you're dating Sheldon?
I'm sorry. Who are you dating?
Yeah, knock it off, Howard!
就是 把嘴闭上 霍华德
I'm on vacation. What do you think?
Why are you sitting in the stairwell?
Leonard told me to stay.
Oh. Well, good boy.
Where are you going?
Oh, I have a ton of errands to run.
I need to make copies of my headshot,
send them off to agents
and sign up for a new acting class and...
- Well, have fun. - Okay.
- You want to come with me? - Really?
Come on, boy. Come on. Let's go. Let's go.
当然可以 走吧 快 乖孩子[狗狗]
Get in the car. Come on.
All right, thanks a lot.
They have one at Capital Comics.
- Oh, that's great. - No, it's not.
I hate that place.
Guy who owns it is a jerk.
He's always making me feel bad about myself.
Oh, that's terrible.
What's the address?
You know, why don't I just take you there?
That way, I can make sure he doesn't rip you off.
Oh, thanks, but I don't want you to close up.
I mean, won't you lose business?
Sorry. That was mean.
- Penny really quit The Cheesecake Factory? - Yeah.
- So, what is she doing today? - I don't know.
She already thinks I don't support this,
so if I call, it might look like I'm checking up on her.
Well, do you support this?
She's a great actress.
I'm proud she's taking this risk.
You bought that? Great!
I got to call her before I forget how I said it.
You taking Hollywood by storm?
Actually, I'm at The Cheesecake Factory.
You got your job back. That is great news.
I didn't want to say anything,
but you are making the right choice.
To plunge yourself into debt right now
- would be literally insane. Yeah.
I'm just returning my uniform.
And I support you.
Before we begin your guided meditation,
and picture yourself in a peaceful environment.
I'm inside the CERN super collider.
Now, take a deep, relaxing breath in through your nose.
Didn't see that coming.
What was I gonna do? Two "ins" in a row?
Where's my lemonade?
A fitting swan song to your career as a waitress
to forget my order one last time.
Do you think quitting my job was a mistake?
Do you see me drinking lemonade?
Because Leonard just pissed me off.
Am I being an idiot or not?
No, I don't think you are.
The best way to achieve a goal is to devote 100%
of your time and energy to it.
When I decided I was going to be a physicist,
I didn't take some other job
in case it didn't work out.
Which wasn't easy because there was a lot of pressure
from Ms. Pierson for me to be chalk monitor that year.
Thank you. I needed to hear that.
Why can't Leonard understand it?
Because he's not like us, Penny.
Yeah, I need to start cracking the window
when I leave you in the car.
So, anyway, there's this big, uh, rock and mineral show
next week in Santa Monica and...
before you say anything else, I...
I have a boyfriend.
You thought I was gonna ask you to go with me
to the mineral show. - Weren't you?
That's very nice of you, but...
I do have a boyfriend.
That's what you all say.
You just don't want to go out with me
because I have an off-putting personality.
No, that's not true.
My boyfriend has an off-putting personality, too.
Like, way worse than you.
I mean, I'm big and weird and funny-looking
我这么大只 个性古怪 长相奇怪
and no one ever wants to do anything with me.
I know I'm a monster.
No, Bert, come on.
不 伯特 别走
I'd love to go to the mineral show with you.
Yeah. Haven't seen this many people in my store
since that Korean church bus
crashed through my front window.
Haven't seen you in forever.
Look how gray you've gotten.
My hair's exactly the same color as always.
No, I was talking about your skin.
Look, uh, my friend here needs a comic book...
And she went into your store by mistake.
Good thing there was no one there to see you.
Oh, yeah, yeah. I got this.
Even you, Sweatpants?
Can I offer you a coffee?
How about you, Stu? Mocha? Scone?
你呢 斯图 摩卡还是司康饼
Directions to the nearest soup kitchen?
He knows where the soup kitchen is.
It's on Merton Avenue.
I don't think I like the way you're treating my friend.
You want the book or not?
Let's go, Stuart.
You know something, Jesse?
You may have a successful business
a-and the kind of pink complexion
that comes with good nutrition...
...but I have something more important.
Which I would trade in a heartbeat for all of this.
The mineral and rock show?
That would be awful even without Bert.
So what am I supposed to do now?
Prepare your uterus for his gigantic offspring?
This isn't funny.
I'm gonna have to tell him the truth:
that even if I didn't have a boyfriend,
I wouldn't be interested in him.
I've heard those words so many times.
From Linda Nosenchuck, Tammy Rosenworcel...
Padma Kapur, Neha Chowdury...
...Marci Grossman, Lisa Mazzarino...
- ...Megan Pincus... - ...Tammy Cho...
Oh, who was that girl from our Starbucks?
- Arlene Russel! - Yes! Arlene!
-艾琳·罗素 -没错 艾琳
She wrote "no way" on both our cappuccinos.
That guy's got a rough afternoon ahead of him.
Well, how would you want a girl
to tell you she wasn't interested?
I guess, uh, I'd like her to sit me down,
look me in the eye and say,
"I was wrong. I love you."
And then maybe she could touch me in a special way.
That's how you reject a guy.
Okay, I don't have time for this.
I'm just gonna go find him and be brutally honest.
- No, don't. - He'll be so upset.
He'll probably climb up the Empire State Building
and start swatting at planes.
You want us to talk to him?
- You would do that? - Sure.
We've both been in his shoes.
We'll let him down with compassion and respect.
So we tell him she's a lesbian, right?
Of course we tell him she's a lesbian.
Now let's try Warrior II.
I've read that there are great yogis
who have such mastery over their bodies
they can draw water in through their genitals.
Yeah, well, I don't think we're gonna get to do that today.
It seems like a good way to drink a milk shake
without getting brain freeze.
And now we go to Reverse Warrior.
How did she get you to do yoga?
Well, to be honest, I thought she said "Yoda."
I'm helping him relax because, unlike you,
Oh, how many times do I have to say it?
Sheldon, take a break.
Okay, if you support me, what was with that phone call?
Fine. I'm not sure you should have quit.
But if you care so much what I think,
why didn't you ask me before you did it?
Oh, so now I need your permission?
Would you have asked me before you quit your job?
I thought we were in the kind of relationship
where we make decisions together.
If I'm wrong, then maybe we need to talk about
the kind of relationship we're actually in.
Yeah, well, maybe we do.
I'm willing to if you guys are.
Can we please have some privacy?
I'm as much a part of this relationship as you two,
and I think it's high time we put all our cards on the table.
Yeah. For example, where is this going?
Are you two ever getting married?
And, if so, where will we all live?
Have you thought about that?
Okay, wait. What are we doing?
For some reason, we're planning a future
where we both live with Sheldon forever.
Good. Now we're getting somewhere.
Look, I know you think I'm being reckless,
and you might be right,
but I need to take this shot.
Yeah, no kidding.
Despite what it says on her resume,
she is no longer 22.
I swear, I am on your side.
You keep saying you're on my side,
- but you don't act like it. - He does that to me, too.
Why do we put up with it?
Listen, I could never do what you're doing, okay?
I would be terrified.
Well, it's scary for me, too.
My point is, just because I couldn't do it
doesn't mean you shouldn't.
And I'm proud of you.
Well, to celebrate this reconciliation,
let's all share a milk shake.
Uh, Penny, you'll need a straw.
佩妮 你用吸管 我们"龙汲水"
- You're back. - Yes, I am!
There's a few more things I want to say to you.
Stuart's store is just fine,
and he's a much nicer person than you are,
and if you still have that comic,
I'd like to buy it right now!
Oh, you want a latte while you wait?
No, I don't want a latte!
I want a cappuccino and a blueberry scone!
I only have chocolate chip.
Well, that sounds even better!
Thanks for coming to the mineral and rock show with me.
We're sorry Amy didn't want to go.
Really, really sorry.
Who needs her when I have you guys?
Rock show! Rock show!
Rock show! Rock show!
