yeah. we're gonna
Have to stop by pottery barn on the way to work.
I bought these star wars sheets,
But they turned out to be much too stimulating
To be compatible with a good night's sleep.
I don't like the way darth vader stares at me.
I'm not going to work.
Oh,just because your career's been stagnant
For a few years,that's no reason to give up.
Sheldon,i was up all night
Using the new free-electron laser
For x-ray diffraction experiment.
Did the laser accidentally burn out your retinas?
Then you can drive. let's go.
Didn't I tell you I'd be working nights
And that you'd have to make other arrangements?
But how am I going to get to work?
I can't take the bus anymore.
They don't have seat belts,and they won't let you
Latch yourself to the seat with bungee cords.
You tried to latch yourself to the seat with bungee cords?
I didn't try. I succeeded.
But for some reason,it alarmed the other passengers
And I was asked to de-bus.
You'll figure it out.
Don't talk to me like I'm a child.
Now,take me to return my star wars sheets!
Sheldon. what is it?
Thanks for the update.
You have to drive me to work.
Yeah,i really don't think I do.
But I don't drive,and I can't take the bus.
Honey,you'll be fe as long as you don't do
That bungee cord thing,okay?
Didn't you recently stated that you and I are friends?
Yes,sheldon. we are friends.
是的 谢尔顿 我们是朋友
Then I hereby invoke what I'm given to understand
Is an integral part of the implied covenant of friendship.
I'm sorry,i didn't realize
I was interrupting your morning prayers.
When you're done,we'll go.
Thank you for driving me to work.
You know this is my day off,sheldon.
Oh,good. I'm not keeping you from anything.
Your "check engine" light is on.
Typically that's an indicator
To,you know,check your engine.
It's fine. it's been on for,like,a month.
Well,actually,that would be all the more reason to...
You know,check your engine.
The light wouldn't be on.
That's why the manufacturer installed that light,
To let you know it's not fine.
Maybe the light's broken.
Is there a "check the 'check engine light' light"?
Studies have shown that performing tasks
Such as eating,talking on a cell phone
某些行为 诸如吃东西 打电话
Or drinking coffee while driving
Reduces one's reaction time
By the same factor as an ounce of alcohol.
Do you have any alcohol?
You're going up euclid avenue?
Leonard takes los robles avenu
Well,good for leonard.
Euclid avenue is shorter as the crow flies,
But it has speed bumps,which appreciably increase
Point-to-point drive time,
Making It the less efficient choice.
But you have the conn.
Of course,if you're not going to slow down
For the speed bumps,
I withdraw my previous objection.
Here's a fun question.
Do you know what the most common street name is?
The answer's tricky.
You see,you'd think it would be first street,
But in most towns,first street eventually
Gets renamed to something else.
You know,like main street,
See,leonard and I often use our commute time
To exercise our minds with brain-teasers like that.
We also play games.
Would you like to play one?
Oh,come on. it's fun.
Ooh! another bump.
Okay. I'll say an element,and,and you say an element
Whose name starts with the last letter
Of the one I said,okay?
Now,you could say "mercury."
That would give me a "y."
Ooh. very clever. that's a tough one.
So I go with "ytterbium," which gets you back to "m."
So you go "molybdenum," and I say "magnesium."
You say "manganese." I say "europium,"
And,then,you're left with "mendelevium,"
And... there are no more m's
Because I believe that meitnerium
Should still be called ekairidium.
So,congratulations. you win.
Do you wanna go again?
Why don't we just have a little quiet time now?
I'm finding your reckless nonchalance
Regarding the check-engine light to be very troubling.
Well,i ve to tell you
That while I do have a theoretical understanding
Of the workings of an internal combustion engine,
I'm not sure I'm capable of performing diagnostics.
Okay. I'll give it a shot.
Oh,leonard. there you are.
I'm ready to go home.
T1 I just got here.
Good. perfect timing.
Told you,i only have access
To the free-electron laser at night.
I can't drive you for the next few weeks.
No,you said you couldn't drive me to work.
this is from work.
Howard,help me out here.
No,just for the fun of it,i'm gonna take his side.
不 我要站在他那边 这样有意思多了
How do you propose I get home?
How did you get here in the first place?
But I sense that's no longer an option.
Look,i need to get edto the laser lab.
You're just gonna have
To find someone else to take you home.
Ah,damn,i picked the wrong side.
Oh,god,not euclid avenue!
Why did howard leave you
In the middle of the road anyway?
We had a difference of opinion.
Whether or not he was trying to kill me.
For the record,i maintain he was.
Where are you going?
I'm taking you home.
Oh,but I'm not going home.
Wednesday's new comic book day.
We have to go to the comic book store.
And then,we have to stop
At soup plantation; it's creamy tomato soup day.
And radio shack.
There's a sale on triple-a batteries.
Plus,we have to go to pottery barn
And return my star wars sheets.
I have a better idea.
You want to go to pottery barn first?
Can you drive me to pottery barn?
Maybe if I turn off the night-light,
I can keep the sheets.
She's in my spot.
Don't look at me like that.
Everybody knows that my spot.
Sheldon,you know that we care about you.
And it's because we care about you
That we've decided we have to speak up.
You're hurting the people around you,sweetie.
So we made you an appointment,
And we want you to keep it.
Department of motor vehicles new driver handbook?
But I don't have a problem.
Sheldon,you need to learn how to drive.
This madness has to stop.
Penny's taking you to the dmv.
Because rock breaks scissors.
All right,come on,sheldon.
好了 走吧 谢尔顿
I have one condition.
We have to stop at pottery barn.
And radio shack.
And the comic book store.
Ooh,i want to go to the comic book store.
I like comic books.
I just don't see why I need a driver's license.
Albert einstein never had a driver's license.
Yeah,but albert einstein didn't make me wet myself
At 40 miles an hour.
Yeah,and I never wanted to kick albert einstein in the nuts.
You know,i gotta ask,why didn't you just
Get a license at 16 like everybody else?
I was otherwise engaged.
Examining perturbative amplitudes
In n=4 supersymmetric theories
Leading to a re-examination of the ultraviolet properties
Of multi-loop n=8 supergravity using modern twistor theory.
Well,how 'bout when you were 17?
Take this to the testing area,
Put your name at the top,sign the bottom,
Answer the questions,bring it back. next
I'm actually more of a theorist.
The application in your hand.
Take this to the testing area,
Put your name at the top,sign the bottom,
Answer the questions,bring it back. next!
Excuse me,but I have some concerns about these questions.
Look at that sign up there.
Does it say "i give a damn"?
That's because I don't.
See,this first question makes no sense.
"how many car lengths
Should you leave in front of you when driving?"
There's no possible way to answer that.
A "car length" is not a standardized unit of measure.
Sheldon,it's "c." just put down "c."
谢尔顿 答案是"C" 就写"C"
I don't need yourelp,penny.
Listen to that little girl,honey.
No,wait! no,hang on.
别 等下 等等
Look at this next question.
Sheldon,why are you arguing with the dmv?
How else are they going to learn?
"when are roadways most slippery?"
Now,okay,there are three answers,
None of which are correct.
The correct answer is "when covered by
"a film of liquid sufficient to reduce
"the coefficient of static friction
"between the tire and the road to essentially zero,
But not so deep as to introduce a new source of friction."
Here's your learner's permit. go away.
I have many additial concerns
About these questions.
Don't make me climb over this counter.
Come on. let's go. come on.
来吧 我们走 来吧
This is a state-of-the-art simulator.
I adapted it from something
A friend of mine designed for the army.
Is that why I appear to be in downtown fallujah
Behind the wheel of an up-armored humvee?
I haven't configured it yet.
Transport truck... batmobile...
Here we go. red 2006 ford taurus
On the streets of pasadena.
Statistically,red cars are stopped by police
Far more often than any other color.
I don't want any hassles with the fuzz.
Fine,what color do you want?
You know the pale blue of luke skywalker's lightsaber?
Before it was digitally remastered?
Okay,now,what you want to do first
Is turn on the ignition
And shift into drive.
I haven't fastened my seat belt yet.
Okay,fasten your seat belt.
Now,are there air bags?
You don't need air bags.
What if a simulated van rear-ends me?
I'll hit you in the face with a pillow.
Okay,now shift into drive.
Pull out slowly into traffic.
Watch out,watch,watch out for the pedestrians!
Hit the brakes! the brakes!
To get on the second floor of the glendale galleria?
I was on the pasadena freeway. I missed my exit,
Flew off the overpass,and one thing led to another.
Maybe you want to give it a rest and try again tomorrow.
Remind me to compliment wolowitz on the software.
It's amazingly detailed.
Th so wait,you're just gonna give up?
No,i'm not giving up.
So,what is it you're doing?
Transcending the situation.
I'm clearly too evolved for driving.
What does that mean?
Leonard,have you ever wondered why my little toes
莱纳德 你有没有想过 平均来说 为什么我的小趾
And lateral incisors are significantly smaller
Than the average for someone of my size?
I wonder a lot of things about you,sheldon.
你的事 我有很多都很好奇 谢尔顿
Well,those are indicators
That I'm farther along the evolutionary scale
Than the average human.
- No kidding. - well,no,no.
-真有你的 -别走 别走
I'm not gonna go so far as to say
That I represent a distinct new stage in humankind--
You know,a homo novus,if you will.
No,that's for anthropologists to decide.
That the rson I cannot master the plebeian task of driving
Is because I'm not meant to.
You're meant to learn how to drive.
Please learn how to drive!
Leonard,i'm meant for greater things,
Like unraveling the mysteries of the universe,
Not determining when it's safe
To pass a stopped school bus on a country road.
Yeah,well,i know that now.
Assuming that everything you say is true,
How does the biologically superior homo novus
Get to work tomorrow morning?
Homo novus doesn't know.
Maybe you'll evolve into something with wings.
Is there some new kind of casual friday
I don't know about?
No,he lives here now.
Since he won't take the bus and he's too evolved to drive,
He decided it would be easier to just sleep in his office
And shower in the radiation lab
Until I'm finished with my experiment.
But you finished your experiment a week ago.
Las ratas no hacen pan tostado
Y le cortan las orillas.
You saw nothing!
