Hello. I'm Dr. Sheldon Cooper.
And I'm Dr. Amy Farrah Fowler.
And this is: Dr. Sheldon Cooper
and Dr. Amy Farrah Fowler present...
Dr. Sheldon Cooper's Fun with Flags.
I'd like to start this episode by apologizing on behalf of Dr. Fowler,
who made the wild claim last week
that there was no national tricolored flag
with a purple stripe, when, in fact,
the Estonian governorate inside the Russian Empire
had a purple stripe on their flag from 1721 to 1917.
See? Right there in the middle.
And I'd like to apologize on behalf of Dr. Cooper
for having his zipper down for the entire segment
on the flags of East Africa.
Sorry, Tanzania, you deserve better.
坦桑尼亚 对不起 是我辜负了你
All right, on today's episode,
we're gonna start with some viewer e-mails.
Oh, take off your glasses so people can't see
your password in the reflection.
Okay, our first e-mail is-- mm-- from...
uh, Brad or Brian?
- I don't know, maybe it's Seth. - All right, put them back on.
-不知道 也可能是塞斯 -快把眼镜重新戴上吧
Oh. Uh... oh, my gosh, it's from Fermilab in Chicago.
Ah. Not surprising, the Windy City.
Great flag town.
No, no, it's about our paper.
A team of physicists confirmed super-asymmetry.
Our paper was right.
- We did it! - We did it!
Aw, remember when they only did it on her birthday?
♪ Our whole universe was in a hot, dense state ♪
♪ Then nearly 14 billion years ago expansion started... Wait! ♪
♪ The Earth began to cool
♪ The autotrophs began to drool, Neanderthals developed tools ♪
♪ We built the Wall, We built the pyramids♪
♪ Math, Science, History, unraveling the mystery ♪
♪ That all started with a big bang ♪
So, my incredible wife has some exciting news.
Howie, stop. I don't want to brag.
华仔 别这样 我不想高调啦
Really? No one's gonna ask?
Sorry. What's your news?
The drug I've been working on for the past five years
just got approved by the FDA.
Was that the decongestant you developed?
No, we had to rebrand that as a solvent for mining equipment.
Is it that anti-itch cream you were testing on grad students?
It's not, but that's a really funny story
which I'm legally prevented from telling you.
It's her anti-inflammatory drug.
Yep, three years of testing and no reported side effects.
Ah, so it works.
Well, congratulations. I'm so happy for you.
Yeah, well, I'm happy for you,
because I want you to head up my sales team.
Really? Me? Don't you want someone with more experience?
真的假的 我吗 你不找经验更丰富的人吗
Nope. The job's all yours.
Okay, well, thank you.
Why don't we just chat about this at work?
We can chat about it all you want, but you're doing it.
You guys will never believe what just happened.
And we didn't even know we did it!
Two physicists in Chicago had to tell us.
Their experiment on kaon decay supported our predictions
on the higher order corrections pertaining to super-asymmetry.
I am so proud of you.
Well, I know how to do the dishes.
Just, sometimes I'm tired.
No, I-I mean, I'm proud of how well you're doing at work.
Are you even using soap?
- Do you want to do this? - Yeah, I really do.
You know, it was nice of Bernadette to offer,
but I'm not sure it's the right move for me.
Well, what are you talking about?
If you were in charge of her project,
wouldn't that be a promotion?
Well, yeah, but it's not the most important thing.
Aren't you always saying it's about the work,
not more money or a better title?
All the smart things I say, and you remember the dumb one.
Plus, I'd be working for Bernadette.
I don't know if that's a good idea.
Look, I-I know she can be difficult,
but she's no match for you.
Whatever she dishes out, you can give it right back double.
What the hell is that supposed to mean?
I have Dr. Cooper and Dr. Fowler for you.
What are we bringing in?
Oh. No, I don't want to.
懂了 不 我想不要
Well, what you don't want, you don't get.
I hope you know, with these new data supporting your theory,
we could be looking at a Nobel-winning achievement.
"We," "We," whatever.
Doctors Pemberton and Campbell from Fermilab
are flying to Los Angeles, and they are eager to meet you.
Confirming my theory, eager to meet me.
They are checking all my boxes.
You know, Caltech has 38 Nobel laureates.
If you win, you and Amy will be 39 and 40.
What's the difference?
Wha... You are right, there is no difference at all.
Thank you. It is exciting.
Oh, that's very sweet.
I'm gonna remember you said that.
Just like I remember how you tried to take my office
when I was on maternity leave.
Of course I'm not angry.
How can I be angry at a dead man?
I spoke to my supervisor
about heading up your sales team,
and she said she just can't lose me right now.
Do you want me to call her? I could rip her a new one.
No, no. No ripping.
Um, anyway, I-I don't want to leave her shorthanded,
That's what makes you a good employee.
It's just such a bummer.
You sure you don't want me to call her?
Oh, no, I'm sure, definitely sure. Don't call her.
我确定 非常确定 别打给她
But, you know, just, ugh, why?
The last time we were in this room, we were getting married.
It's a lot less impressive without Mark Hamill in it.
That's what you said about our honeymoon.
And I stand by it.
Doctors Cooper and Fowler,
these are Doctors Pemberton and Campbell,
whose experiment confirmed your work.
- Hello. - Nice to meet you.
- Nice to meet you. - Hi.
Okay, I'll leave you all to it.
Remember about the hugging.
It is such a pleasure to meet you.
Oh, it's really nice to meet you, too.
I mean, we thought we'd have to wait decades
to get confirmation for our theory.
Yes, thanks to you, I'll get to eat my Nobel dinner
是啊 托你们的福 我不用戴着假牙
with my original teeth.
Well, this certainly is a thrill for us. Lunch with you two,
and, uh, tomorrow, we're gonna see a taping of Ellen.
She's having John Stamos on.
So, um, listen, we just published a few months ago.
How did you have time to design an experiment?
We didn't. This whole thing is actually a gigantic accident.
Yeah, we've been working with kaons,
and our data made absolutely no sense.
A few weeks ago, someone told us about your paper,
and we realized that our failed experiment
confirmed your theory.
And now, instead of losing our jobs,
Fermilab flew us to L.A. Economy Plus.
Looks like my wife left me a month too soon.
So you weren't even thinking about super-asymmetry?
We don't even understand it.
And now look at the four of us,
changing the face of physics!
Ooh, I got to do it.
Oh, man, that last episode of Star Trek: Discovery was crazy.
Whoa, whoa, whoa, I-I'm actually one behind.
I haven't started the new season yet.
Ooh, uh, how about this week's Walking Dead?
- Two behind. - Three behind.
- Black Mirror? - No.
Come on, there must be something we've all seen.
Oh, how about that video of my dog I sent you,
where she's growling at a pinecone?
I actually hadn't watched it yet,
but thanks for ruining the ending.
Uh, can you believe this?
Doctors Pemberton and Campbell have been doing a press tour
trying to take credit for super-asymmetry.
They didn't even know what they were finding.
So what? I mean, no one's gonna give them credit
for accidentally discovering something.
Yeah, who remembers the guy
who was trying to find India and discovered America instead?
What was his name again?
But this is different.
Sheldon, super-asymmetry is your paper.
Everyone knows you were there first.
Mm, actually, the Nobel Committee has sometimes favored
experimentalists like them over theoreticians like you.
No, that's just a scary campfire story
like the guy with the hook.
The scientists that proved the big bang,
they thought their sensors needed cleaning
until someone pointed out that they were picking up
cosmic background radiation from the singularity.
They won the Nobel.
Not the scientists that came up with the theory.
So you're saying they could steal our Nobel Prize?
- Yes. - That's terrible.
Now we have something we can talk about.
Hey, you wanted to see me?
- Yeah, come on in. - Okay.
-是的 进来吧 -好
So, I talked to your supervisor,
and she said that she never stopped you from working on my team,
because you never asked her.
Oh, you know, you should know,
she's been taking our new antidepressant,
and lying is one of the main side effects.
Why don't you want to work with me?
I know I can be tough, but that's just 'cause
I'm surrounded by useless idiots.
No, it's not that.
Honestly, I don't know if I'm up to it.
You know, the last project I managed
- was my high school yearbook. - And?
And that was the year we didn't have one.
Apparently, the printers won't make them
without getting paid.
What happened to the money?
Uh, if I didn't know then, I'm not gonna magically know now.
Plus, you know, I didn't go to college.
I'd be in charge of people that are far more educated with more experience;
what if they don't listen to me?
Then you be really mean to them.
Have I taught you nothing?
Penny, everybody feels like you do.
Like they're not good enough,
- not smart enough. - What, even you?
- Of course. - Dr. Rostenkowski, you wanted me...
-当然了 -罗斯滕科斯基博士 你找我...
Hey, did they not teach knocking at Stanford? Get out!
Dr. Cooper, hello.
Hello to you, too. Now stop trying to steal our Nobel Prize.
You come up with your own idea.
Yeah, that's not gonna happen.
Wouldn't that be something, though?
This discovery belongs to Amy and me.
Look, Dr. Cooper,
we all want a Nobel Prize.
Super-asymmetry could be the breakthrough that gets us there.
But we can't fight over credit; we have to work together.
you're saying that the four of us
should just agree to share this discovery?
Well, no, unfortunately,
only three people can share a Nobel.
Neither of us is out.
We think that the three physicists
should be the ones to win the Nobel Prize for physics.
Wait, so you want to cut Amy out?
No, of course not.
We don't want to, but we're going to.
But she's my wife.
Yes, exactly, she's your wife.
对 没错 她是你妻子
And she's a neuroscientist.
It's like, what's she even doing on this paper?
It just raises questions.
Look, Fermilab is going to recommend
the three of us to the Nobel Committee.
The best chance we have is if your university does the same.
So you really think that I'm the kind of man who would
sell out his partner for the chance of winning a Nobel Prize?
Boy, I hope not.
I can't believe Penny doesn't want
- to head up my sales team. - That's too bad.
But it's her decision, not yours.
Do you hear how dumb you sound?
Why does this matter to you so much?
Because I believe in her, and I make people better.
Against their will?
It's no fun if they want to.
That's just called watching.
He was a disaster when I met him.
Now he's a foxy astronaut with a hot wife.
Wait, he always wanted to be an astronaut.
He thinks that, too.
That's how good I am.
Wait, so what are you gonna do?
Just badger her until she says yes?
Mm, that may have worked on you, but she's too smart for that.
Well, if you like fixing people, I could use some help.
Why do you think you stopped wearing Crocs and socks?
Uh, well, one day I just woke up and realized they looked silly.
Yes, you did. All on your own.
That's how good I am.
Why do you assume something's wrong?
Because you haven't touched your dinner,
and you're literally ticking like a bomb about to go off.
You see through me like one of Penny's shirts.
I talked to Doctors Pemberton and Campbell today.
They reminded me that only three people can share a Nobel Prize.
Their university is recommending
the two of them and me.
And they want Caltech to do the same.
They say, if we present a united front,
we have a much better shot at winning.
that makes sense.
Oh, but don't worry. I won't do that to you.
Maybe you should.
This has been your lifelong dream.
And you may not get another chance.
I don't want to be the reason that you don't win a Nobel.
You're the only reason I deserve one.
But if your best shot is with them,
I think you should take it.
Is this really what you want me to do?
I just want you to be happy.
Hey. How long have you been sitting there?
Long enough for two of your neighbors
to ask if I was lost and looking for my mother.
I'm not changing my mind, Bernie.
That's okay. I'm sorry.
It was wrong of me to badger you into doing something
that made you uncomfortable.
Mm, it's probably for the best.
I need someone who's strong and confident
to head up my sales team, so I'm giving it to Karen.
What... Karen? Well, what's the job?
什么 凯伦 工作内容是什么
Eating my yogurt and then lying about it?
She went to college. She's really smart.
Well, I'm smarter than Karen.
I can read the word "Penny" on a cup of yogurt.
Why are you getting so upset?
I'm agreeing with you. This is a big job,
and I need someone who's up to it.
I am up to it. I'm just nervous about it.
I know. And that's why I don't want to pressure you
into doing something that you clearly don't want to do.
I know what you're up to.
- So I'll see you Monday morning? - Yes.
I bet I can make that girl president.
Uh, President Siebert, Dr. Cooper is...
I need to talk to you about the paper
that Dr. Fowler and I published.
Amy and I did this together,
and I will not be part of an award
that does not recognize the value of her contributions.
So you either include both of us in the recommendation letter,
or don't bother writing one.
I hope you know that's going to cause a fight
between us and the Fermilab team.
If it's a fight that doesn't involve any touching,
risk of physical harm or uncomfortable eye contact
'cause it's happening online or through intermediaries,
All right. I respect your decision.
Yes. You and Dr. Fowler have my full support.
I anticipated a little more pushback.
Sorry, my job here is to serve your needs,
both academic and personal.
Well, now I'm filled with all this nervous energy.
I don't know quite what to do with it.
We have a fully equipped gymnasium.
It's part of the new sports complex.
Come on, I'll show you.
Are there monkey bars?
All right, now, I'm sure some of you are wondering,
"Who is this woman?
How did she get to be in charge of the sales team?
Is it because she's friends with Dr. Rostenkowski?"
"Is it because she was Miss Cornhusker 2001
and still fits in those very same jeans?"
'Cause she was, and she does,
and they're actually a little baggy.
Or is it because she's the best damn salesperson here?
Now that we're clear on that, here are the drug specs
and marketing strategy for Inflamminex.
Which, now that I say it out loud, might be a placeholder.
By tomorrow, I want everyone to have this committed to memory.
Do you have it committed to memory?
You want to have a contest, Karen?
Winner gets a yogurt.
All right, now we all know what we need to do.
R-Right now. Get out of here. Go.
现在 快走 行动
That was really impressive.
Damn right it was impressive.
- Okay, that tone doesn't work with me. - Sorry, boss.
-不要跟我用这种语气 -对不起 老板
