I'm attempting to view my work as a fleeting peripheral image
so as to engage the superior colliculus of my brain.
I usually just have coffee.
You've been up all night?
Then I've been up all night.
Why else would a person try to engage their superior colliculus?
Oh, sorry, sweetie, I can't help you till I've had my coffee.
真抱歉 亲爱的 喝完咖啡前我可帮不了你
Penny, I told you if you don't put him in his crate at night
佩妮 我早就告诉过你 你要不把他关到他房间里
he just runs around the apartment.
What is he doing now?
Hmm, he's either isolating the terms
of his formula and examining them individually,
looking for the alligator that swallowed his hand
after Peter Pan cut it off.
Captain Hook's hand was eaten by a crocodile,
If you're going to mock me, at least get your facts straight.
It just won't coalesce.
Maybe you need a fresh start.
It's a great idea, Leonard. Thank you.
真是个好主意 莱纳德 谢谢
Electrons move through graphene...
act as if they have no mass...
How long has he been stuck?
Intellectually about 30 hours.
Emotionally about 29 years.
Unit cell contains two carbon atoms...
Interior angle of a hexagon is 120 degrees.
Have you tried rebooting him?
No, I think it's a firmware problem.
Hey, it's Disco Night at the Moonlight Roller Rink
in Glendale tonight.
Who's up for getting down?
Bernadette's been hocking me to take her roller skating.
I think Penny likes to skate.
The four of us could double.
What could be better? We're in.
Great. It's not like I brought it up because I wanted to go.
You can come with us.
No, it's okay. I don't have to go.
不 没事儿的 我不必去的
I'm happy just to guide you and your ladies
to suitable entertainment choices.
I'm a walking brown Yelp.Com.
Structure, constant structure. One atom...
结构 恒定结构 一个原子
Boy, he's really gone, isn't he?
天 他真的是走火入魔了 是吗
Yeah, this morning he used a stick of butter as deodorant.
I thought I smelled popcorn.
Pattern is the same as fermions travels on the pathways...
Hexagonal... It's always hexagonal...
I haven't seen him this stuck since he tried to figure out
the third Matrix movie.
Hey, those are my lima beans!
Not lima beans, carbon atoms.
But if I don't eat my lima beans,
I can't have my cookie.
Here, you want my peas?
The peas-- perfect.
They can be electrons.
Don't be ridiculous.
What would I do with corn?
So roller skating-- should we all grab a bite to eat first?
Good. P.F. Chang's?
My mom has coupons.
Your mom's not coming, right?
Not this time, I promise.
Okay, just to be clear, roller skating was my idea,
and I'm very unhappy that you turned it into a double date,
and I hope you both fall on your asses
and break your coccyxes.
The plural of coccyx is coccyges.
Screw you. Give me back my lima beans.
Oh, my God. Have you ever been so embarrassed?
I don't know which was lamer:
their roller-skating or their disco dancing.
For me, the worst part
was when people saw us leave with them.
You had some nice moves out there, Howard.
Thanks. You, too.
Did you notice all the people looking at us?
Not really. I was in my boogie zone.
When Howard tried to do the splits...
Sorry. I'm moving a little slow.
I think I bruised my coccyx.
Don't tell Koothrappali.
Oh, what a gentleman.
You're ruining everything!
Don't bark at me. I fell, too.
Oh, you've been falling all night. You're used to it.
Sheldon, what the hell are you doing?
The same thing I've been doing for three days.
Trying to figure out why electrons
behave as if they have no mass
when traveling through a graphene sheet.
Well, I needed something bigger
than peas, now, didn't I?
Sheldon, when was the last time you got any sleep?
I don't know-- two, three days.
不知道 大概2 3天
I don't need sleep. I need answers.
I need to determine where
in this swamp of unbalanced formulas
squatteth the toad of truth.
Is that a physics thing?
No, that's a crazy thing.
What happens to our neuroreceptors
when we don't get enough REM sleep?
They lose their sensitivity to serotonin and norepinephrine.
Impaired cognitive function.
Right, so march in there, brush your teeth and go to bed.
没错 所以进屋去 刷刷牙 上床睡觉
But I don't want to go to bed.
I'm going to count to three. One...
That was amazing how you handled him.
I know how to deal with stubborn children.
My mother used to run an illegal day care center in our basement.
Leonard, you're... you're giggling in your sleep.
It's my new ringtone.
The Joker from Batman.
Well, it creeps me out.
Me, too, but I paid three bucks for it.
Just answer the phone.
Yeah, I'm Leonard Hofstadter.
Yeah, yeah, he's my roommate.
Oh, God, is he okay?
Yeah, all-all right. I'll be right there.
Sheldon's escaped and is terrorizing the village.
Okay. Have fun.
好吧 去吧 玩的开心点
Hi. I'm Dr. Hofstadter.
- Where is he? - Ball pit.
Thanks for not calling the cops.
Oh, hey, it's no big deal.
My sister's got a kid who's special.
ah, well, he's extra special.
Size ratio was all wrong.
Couldn't visualize it.
Needed bigger carbon atoms.
How did you get into this place?
Back door has a five-pin tumbler system,
single-circuit alarm. Child's play.
You can start sorting protons and neutrons
while I build carbon atoms.
No, I don't think so.
We need to go home now.
But I'm still working.
If you don't come out of there,
I'm going to have to drag you out.
You can try, but you'll never catch me.
Sheldon, come here!
Leonard and Penny.
Leonard and Penny.
What? What, what, what?
Leonard and Penny.
And you had to barge in here and wake us up
in the middle of the night?
Your cell phone was off.
Because we didn't want to be disturbed.
Well, that didn't work out, did it?
Sheldon, what do you want?
I came to tell you I've got the answer.
You figured out the graphene problem?
No, no, I'm still hopelessly stuck on that,
but I figured out how to figure it out.
Okay, you know what, Leonard, I know I said
你猜怎着 莱纳德 我曾经说过
I could handle your roommate, but I was wrong.
We're going to have to break up.
What are you talking about?
Yeah, I'm going to need a little more.
When Albert Einstein came up with special relativity,
he was working at the patent office.
So, you're going to go work at the patent office?
That's in Washington.
You know I could never live in a city whose streets
are laid out in a wheel-and-spoke pattern.
No. I'm going to find
a similarly menial job
where my basal ganglia are occupied with a routine task,
freeing my prefrontal cortex
to work quietly in the background on my problem.
Sounds like a great plan.
Even talking to you is
sufficiently menial that I can feel
the proverbial juices starting to flow.
Okay, well, thanks for sharing with us.
- Good night. - You're welcome.
And good night to you, too.
Oh, by the way, I was watching you sleep for a moment,
and I noticed that your snoring
seems to be worse when you're on your back.
Leonard doesn't snore.
No, I wasn't talking to Leonard.
So, Mr. Cooper, you're looking for a job.
Well, thank you for noticing.
I'm "Menial Employee of the Month."
Do you have a particular field in mind?
For thousands of years,
the lowest classes of the human race
have spent their lives laboring to erect monuments
under the lash of their betters,
until finally, they dropped down
and became one with the dust through which they trudged.
Do you have anything like that?
Shouldn't you check your database?
You didn't really type?
I didn't really have to.
So, how about construction?
Oh, that would be good!
Sawing, hammering, eating out of a lunch pail
as my working-class fellows and I
sit perched precariously on a girder high above the metropolis.
No, no. This is putting up sheetrock
at a housing project in Rosemead.
- Good. - One question.
- Yes? - What's sheetrock?
How about doing deliveries for a florist?
That seems acceptable.
- Do you have your own car? - I don't drive.
Of course you don't.
Mr. Cooper, let me just ask you a question.
What was your last job?
Senior theoretical particle physicist at CalTech,
focusing on M theory, or, in layman's terms, string theory.
Just give me a second.
Okay, I'll get those drinks started for you.
Sheldon, what the hell are you doing?
I'm trying to get these tables cleared. We're slammed.
No, wait, wait, no, wait.
Wh-What are you doing here?
A reasonable question.
what is the most mind-numbing, pedeststrian job conceivable,
and three answers came to mind:
uh, toll booth attendant, Apple Store genius...
...and what Penny does.
since I don't like touching other people's coins,
and I refuse to contribute to the devaluation of the word "Genius,"
You just, you just walked in and they hired you, just like that?
你就这么走进来 就被录用了 就这么简单
Since I don't need to be paid, I didn't need to be hired.
I simply came in, picked up a tray, and started "Working for the man."
我就直接走进来 拿起个托盘 然后开始"为人民服务"
Let me get that plate out of your way.
- Sheldon,this is ridiculous. - Is it?
-谢尔顿 这太荒谬了 -是吗
Just a moment ago, I had a minor epiphany
regarding the polymer degradation phenomenon
while scraping congealed nachos off a plate.
Bernadette, table 10 wants their check.
Sheldon,wait, this isn't even what I do.
谢尔顿 等等 再说这也不是我的工作
I'm a waitress, not a busboy.
You're right. That is more menial.
Hello, I'm Sheldon. I'll be your server today.
两位好 我是谢尔顿 负责这桌的服务生
I don't recommend the salmon.
I saw it in the kitchen.
All right, one bacon cheeseburger,
breaking two Jewish dietary restrictions simultaneously--
Beer-battered fish and chips.
Now, here's your tartar sauce.
I also brought you salsa.
It's a little unconventional, but I think you'll like it.
And for you, Factory Burrito Grande--
no cheese, no sour cream,
no ugly consequences from your lactose intolerance.
- Black beans, not pinto beans? - Yes.
-这是黑豆 不是斑豆吧 -对
- Double guacamole? - Of course.
- No cilantro? - Nope.
- Lettuce shredded, not chopped? - Yep.
-生菜是切碎的 而不是剁碎的 -对
You understand why I'm doing this to you?
- I do. - That'll be all.
How long can he keep this up?
I heard about this professor at MIT
who melted down, bought a van,
and spent the rest of his life as a mobile dog groomer.
He never went back to the university?
Only to shampoo Professor Shamburg's shitzu
I bet if we all chipped in, we could buy Sheldon a van.
But he's afraid of dogs.
Yeah, that's the only thing wrong with that plan.
Hey, guys, sorry you had to wait, but we are swamped.
各位 抱歉久等了 今天太忙了
Sheldon took our order.
Sheldon doesn't work here.
Well, honey, not to complain,
but we were starting to think you didn't either.
Is that really necessary?
The interference pattern in the fracture.
The motion of the wave through the molecular structure.
I've been looking at it all wrong.
I can't consider the electrons as particles.
They move through the graphene as a wave.
The moment to applaud would be now.
Sheldon... where are you going?
Aren't you going to clean this up?
I'm sorry. I don't work here.
- Happy now? - I'm on a cloud.
Sheldon, come here.
