Oh, I always tear up
When the Grinch's heart grows three sizes.
Tears seem appropriate.
Enlargement of the heart muscle,
Or hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, is a serious disease
which could lead to congestive heart failure.
You really didn't like it, Sheldon?
No, on the contrary.
I found the Grinch to be a relatable,engaging character.
And I was really with him right up to the point
that he succumbed to social convention
And returned the presents and saved Christmas.
What a buzz kill that was.
When we watch Frosty the Snowman, he roots for the sun.
But the sun is essential for all life on Earth.
Frosty is merely
A bit of frozen supernatural ephemera in a stolen hat.
冰雪构成的怪物 瞬息即逝 还戴着偷来的帽子
A crime, by the way, for which he is never brought to account.
I just love decorating the Christmas tree.
It makes me feel like a little girl again.
We didn't have a tree when I was growing up.
Holidays weren't so much celebrated as studied
For their anthropological and psychological implications
On human society.
Oh, sounds festive.
Did you at least give presents?
We presented papers.
And then broke off into focus groups and critiqued each other.
Sheldon, what about you?
Did you have a Christmas tree?
We had a tree, we had a manger,
We had an inflatable Santa Claus
with plastic reindeer on the front lawn.
And to make things even more jolly,
there were so many blinking lights on the house
They induced neighborhood-wide seizures.
So I take it you don't want to help us trim the tree.
on decorating a spider-infested fire hazard in my home
I would request that you add this.
You're kidding, right?
It's a bust of Sir Isaac Newton.
Wait, excuse me, but it's much
more "Christmasy" than anything you've put on the tree.
December 25, 1642,Julian calendar,
Sir Isaac Newton is born.
Jesus, on the other hand, was actually born in the summer
His birthday was moved
to coincide with a traditional pagan holiday
that celebrated the winter solstice
with lit fires and slaughtered goats.
sounds like more fun than 12 hours of church with my mother
followed by a fruitcake.
Merry Newton-mas, everyone.
I sense that's not sincere, although I have no idea why.
No, it's fine. Look, Sir Issac can go
right next to this little candy cane.
No. Isaac goes at the top of the tree.
You dispute Newton's claim that he invented calculus
and you want to put Gottfried Leibniz on the top.
Yeah, you got me.
I'm a Leibniz man.
Well, perhaps when your mother gets here,
she'll talk some sense into you.
Your-your mother's coming? When?
When were you going to tell me?
Why were you keeping this a secret?
Well, I just-- I thought...
If I can interject here,
Obviously Leonard is concerned
that his mother won't approve of you as his mate.
Why wouldn't she approve of me?
You are, it's just...
If I can interject again.
Leonard comes from a remarkably high-achieving family,
who have all chosen high-achieving partners.
that it's doubtful that his mother will be overly impressed
with his dating a woman whose most significant achievement
is memorizing the Cheesecake Factory menu.
Hey, it's a big menu.
There's two pages just for desserts.
And those specials-- they change every day.
Okay, you know what? It's lame when I say it.
- It's just ridiculous when you pile on. - Okay.
So what did she say when you told her we were going out?
You didn't tell her we were going out, did you?
- Um... - Leonard...
I'm no expert on meditation,
but if you're trying to calm yourself down,
I believe the word is "Om."
It was so nice of you
to come all the way down to the airport to pick me up.
I drove, Mother.
Yes, dear. Mommy's proud.
没错 宝贝 你真是妈妈的骄傲
I've been meaning to thank you
for your notes on my paper
disproving quantum brain dynamic theory.
For a non-physicist,
you have a remarkable grasp
of how electric dipoles in the brain's water molecules
could not possibly form a Bose condensate.
When did you send my mom notes on a paper?
Right after her carpal tunnel surgery.
- Oh, did I thank you for the flowers? - You did.
I don't really like flowers.
Neither do I, but it's the social convention.
Wait, wait, wait. You had surgery?
Yes, and Sheldon sent me flowers.
Then what was all that "wait, wait, wait" about?
I just don't understand
why he knows more about your life than I do.
Well, I would assume it's because Sheldon
and I stay in touch due to mutual interest and respect,
while you avoid me,
due to unresolved childhood issues.
It's what we think
caused your narcissistic personality disorder.
We discussed it at length during our last video chat.
Although how we got onto the subject of you is baffling.
Yes, but we are on the subject,
so I'm obliged to ask.
Leonard, how are you?
Fine, Mom. How are you?
挺好 妈妈 你呢
Now I'm less fine.
Have you heard your brother has gotten engaged?
Sheldon, why didn't you tell me?
I did send a gift from both of us.
She's a remarkable girl.
The youngest appeals court judge in New Jersey
and a two-time Olympic bronze medalist.
You must be very happy.
Why? I'm not marrying her.
So, how about you?
Are you seeing anyone interesting?
Well, I'm not sure about interesting, but...
Not the time, Sheldon.
Shall we switch topics
to Isaac Newton v. Gottfried Leibniz?
It's all right, Sheldon.
that Leonard's not withholding information.
Although, I will point out, Leonard,
that I am a trained psychiatrist
and you are exhibiting the same secretive behavioral tics
that accompanied your learning to masturbate.
Isn't she brilliant, Leonard?
have you and Rajesh finally summoned the courage
to express your latent homosexual feelings toward one another?
Because we don't have latent homosexual feelings
toward one another.
I have a girlfriend now.
And where is she this evening?
She had to go out of town.
Her grandmother died.
Her grandmother died.
Leonard, tell her I have a girlfriend.
I don't know what you're talking about.
What do you mean you don't know what I'm talking about?
Tell her I have a girlfriend!
He "has" a "girlfriend."
Her name is Bernadette. She's working as a waitress,
but she's going to school to be a microbiologist.
Howard, keep in mind that the more passionately
霍华德 记住 你越是执着于
you stick to this construct,
the more you're hurting your partner.
Do you really think your lips in my ear is helping?
Hi. Sorry I'm late.
Oh, glad you're here. Uh, sit down.
I'll get you a plate.
Mom, you remember Penny.
Oh, yes, the waitress slash actress
with the unresolved father issues.
Has he finally come to terms
with his little slugger growing breasts?
Well, he sent me a football and a catcher's mitt for Christmas,
So I'm going to say no.
If it helps, we're all good with your breasts.
Oh, speaking of fathers, Leonard,
That reminds me, I'm divorcing your father.
Yes. He was cheating on me.
- No! - Yes, with some waitress
-不是吧 -就是 和一个什么
From the university cafeteria.
Can you believe it?
Oh, no offense, dear.
No, it sounded like a compliment.
When did this happen?
Mmm, well, let's see.
Sheldon, when did I leave Leonard's father?
Oh, yes, that's right.
The weekend after Leonard's dog died.
She was old and blind, Leonard.
What choice did we have?
I don't believe this.
Why am I the last to know?!
Excuse me, Leonard, I am the one who's getting a divorce,
不好意思 莱纳德 离婚的是我
Mitzy is the one who is dead.
Why are you the one making a fuss?
I'm way out of line!
So, Penny, what's new in your life?
Thank you for driving me back to my hotel.
Oh, it's not a problem.
I was going to ask Leonard to do it,
But he seemed a bit emotionally unstable
And you don't want someone like that operating heavy machinery.
Your "check engine" light is on.
Yeah, I gotta put a sticker over that.
So, uh, you must be devastated about your divorce.
But I am a bit distressed to be in a vehicle
That's not subjected to regular maintenance.
Come on, I mean, you're not upset
that your marriage is over?
Well, initially I felt something akin to grief
And perhaps anger,
But that's the natural reaction of the limbic system
To being betrayed by a loathsome son of a bitch.
Thankfully, my shock was somewhat mitigated by the fact
That I haven't had intercourse with him in eight years.
I've been responsible for my own orgasms since 1982.
That's exactly what I say during orgasms: "Yikes."
You know what? I could use a drink.
Do you want to stop for a drink?
- Oh, I don't drink. - I do, I'll teach you.
I didn't make tea for you.
Then why are you telling me?
It's a conversation starter.
That's a lousy conversation starter.
Oh, is it? We're conversing.
What do you want, Sheldon?
What I want is to be departing the starship Enterprise
In a one-man shuttle craft headed to the planetoid I rule
Known as Sheldon Alpha Five.
Why are you here?
To comfort you, of course.
No, that's not going to work at all.
I'll comfort you from over here.
Leonard, what you're experiencing
Is a classic Jungian crisis
In which the aging individual mourns the loss
Of the never-to-be realized ideal family unit.
Thank you, that's very comforting.
That's not the comforting part.
The comforting part is that the Germans
Have a term for what you're feeling.
the depression that arises from comparing the world as it is
To a hypothetical, idealized world.
You're right, I do feel better.
Well, the Germans have always been a comforting people.
Just remember, Leonard, where your biological family
莱纳德 只要记住 即使你的亲生家人
Has failed you, you always have me, your surrogate family.
有负于你 至少你还有我 你的替代家人
You're my surrogate family?
If it's any consolation, I'm not happy about it either.
Okay, now this time try drinking it all at once.
I've been responsible for my own buzz since 2003.
Another round for me and my homegirl.
I feel a spreading warmth through my extremities.
As long as you don't feel it
Running down your pants, you're fine.
Oh, that is fascinating.
I'm noticing an immediate lowering of my inhibitions.
I'm seriously considering asking that busboy
To ravish me in the alleyway while I eat cheesecake.
Well, we are known for our cheesecake.
- Hit us again. - Yes.
If a little is good, more must be better.
- Hey, Bev, guess what? - What?
-贝芙 你猜怎么着 -什么
I'm sleeping with your son.
Really? Which one?
The one from whom I live across the hall... from.
Well, that's convenient.
How did his penis turn out?
Oh, Beverly, I can't talk to my boyfriend's mother
- About his penis. - Oh, fair enough.
What can you tell me, if anything,
About that busboy's penis?
Actually, I've only had the cheesecake.
You know, Leonard did not want to tell you we were dating.
Well, that means he's either
Embarrassed about the relationship
Or he doesn't care enough about his mother
To tell her he's in one.
Either way, one of us should be insulted.
Well, let's go find out who.
You go get a taxi.
I'm gonna slip my business card
Into that busboy's back pocket,
Cupping his firm, right buttock as I do so.
Your mommy wants to talk to you!
What the hell is going on?
Why didn't you tell me you were tapping my homegirl?
Did I say that right?
Yeah, not bad, not bad.
对 不错 很不错
Are you guys drunk?
Otherwise, why would we have stopped at Del Taco?
不然 我们干嘛停在Del Taco[著名快餐店]
Now, how could you not tell me
You were in a relationship
With this lovely, charming young woman?
- Oh, thank you. - You're welcome.
Is it because she's uneducated,
Trapped in a menial service position?
What the hell happened to "lovely and charming"?
How come you didn't tell me
That you and Father were getting a divorce?
How come you didn't tell me you had surgery?
How come you didn't tell me my dog died?
Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait...
What I hear you saying
Is that you want a more intimate mother-son relationship.
I'm getting a warm feeling spreading through my heart.
That's the Del Taco.
Why is Leonard softly banging his head
Against his bedroom door?
Speaking of warm feelings-- come here.
Now I'd rather have the busboy.
Thank you for taking me to the airport.
Once again, I'm driving.
Please, I am very hungover
And in no mood to satisfy your need for approval.
Sheldon, I do hope you'll forgive me
For my inappropriate behavior last night.
You were intoxicated.
I blame Penny, too.
Wait a minute, what are you talking about?
What inappropriate behavior?
I think it's best that you not know.
- Agreed. - Agreed.
What the hell-- agreed.
And I want you to take very good care of this young woman.
Oh, thank you, Beverly.
She doesn't have much in the way of career prospects.
Don't make her responsible for her own orgasms as well.
Mother, remember when I was complaining
That you don't communicate with me enough?
- Yes, dear. - I'm over it.
-记得 亲爱的 -我言过其实了
