You're misusing the word "ho."
It's an interjection used to call attention
to a destination, not an object, as in, uh, "Land, ho!"
Or, uh, "Westward, ho!"
Hey, guys. Whatcha doin'?
Going out to discover electricity?
If you're referring to the work of Benjamin Franklin,
he did not "discover electricity,"
he merely used a kite to determine
that lightning "consists" of electricity.
He also invented the Franklin stove,
bifocals and the flexible urinary catheter.
We're heading out for some kite fighting.
- "Kite fighting"? - Oh, yeah.
It's an extremely competitive, cutthroat sport.
Well, actually, the risk of throat cutting is very low.
On the other hand, severe string burn is a real
and ever-present danger.
You want to come watch?
But, um, I've got some friends coming over.
Not a big thing-- we're just
gonna watch the Nebraska game.
Oh. Football, sure.
I would've invited you, but I know you're not a football fan.
No, no, I'm not, so... great.
对 当然 很好
You've got plans
doing something you like, I've got plans
doing something I like, so it's good.
Well, maybe we'll hang out later--
you know, after everybody's gone.
I'm sorry, I got bored and drifted off.
抱歉 我觉得无聊 开小差了
Where exactly in the interaction did the sucking lie?
Leonard just realized that Penny's been hiding him
from her friends because he's a tiny, little man
who flies kites.
Oh, that certainly would suck.
Wolowitz is trying to outflank us.
Let out some string, add altitude
and I'll go under and cut his line.
Why wouldn't Penny want her friends to meet me?
Focus, Leonard, focus!
The heat of battle is upon us.
The dogs of war are unleashed.
Maybe Koothrappali's right.
Maybe I embarrass her.
You're embarrassing me right now.
A grown man worrying about such nonsense
when in the middle of flying kites.
Sorry won't bring their kites down.
String burn! String burn!
Oh, they think we're flanking.
They're playing right into our hands.
On the count of three, we execute the flying scissor.
- Did you see that? - See what?
That chick-- she smiled at me.
- No, she didn't. - Yes, she did.
Come on, scissors, scissors!
快 飞剪 飞剪
- Hold my line. - Wait.
What are you doing?
I can't scissors by myself!
Howard! Come back!
You're a sucky friend, you know that?
A sucky, sucky friend.
What was supposed to do?
She gave me that "come-hither" look.
If she gave you any look at all. it was a "you suck" look.
I would've caught up to her if I hadn't pulled a hammy.
Oh, please, you weigh 80 pounds.
You don't have a hammy.
So, Penny doesn't want me around her friends.
I embarrass her. What else could it be?
could be out of concern for your feelings
Perhaps she's excluded you from these gatherings
because she's scouting for a new mate
and don't want to do it in front of you.
Oh... how kind of her.
Most primates don't show that sort of discretion.
A female bonobo will copulate with a new male
in front of the old one
without so much as a "how do you do?"
You always do this, you know?
You ditch me for a woman you don't have a shot with.
I totally had a shot. With a woman
you were chasing through a park--
that's not a shot, that's a felony.
What's worse, it cost me my prized Patang fighting kite.
Sheldon, I don't suppose there's any chance
you could give me my kite back?
I'm sorry, Raj, but the rules of aerial warfare
对不起 拉杰 空战的规则
dictate at the fallen kite go to the victor.
And without rules, the competition has no meaning.
And without meaning,
the following would be an empty gesture.
I have your kite.
How was your football party?
- It was pretty good. We won. - Oh, wow.
-很不错 我们赢了 -哇
It's a weird figure of speech, isn't it
"We won" when you weren't actually playing.
When we watch Star Wars,
we don't say, "We defeated the Empire."
I'm glad to hear it.
Oh, hey, on a related subject,
Are you embarrassed to have me around your friends?
Why would you ask that?
Well, you know, I just noticed
I haven't really met any of them.
Yeah, no, I met the huge ex-boyfriend
and the smaller yet still larger than me ex-boyfriend
By the way, were they here today?
- Of course not. - Of course not.
Why would they be? Why would I ask?
Why am I rambling? Why don't you stop me?
if you want to meet my friends, that would be great.
I just, you know, I didn't want you to be bored.
I wouldn't be bored.
Why would I be bored?
Well, 'cause they're not genius scientists.
Penny, I like all sorts of people.
In fact, some of my best friends aren't geniuses.
Okay, some of my Facebook friends aren't geniuses.
My point is, if we're going to be a couple,
I should be friends with your friends.
Okay, great. Well, then why don't you
好啊 太棒了 那你下周六
come over next Saturday and watch the game with us.
Another football game?
They have them every week.
Did not know that.
- You wanted to meet my friends. - Sure.
Sure, just I don't know much about football.
Oh, that's okay-- a lot of the guys'
girlfriends don't know football.
They just kind of drink and talk in the kitchen.
Okay, a complete pass.
First down, New England.
I think I'm starting to get this.
The only thing I've learned in the last two hours
is that American men love drinking beer,
pee too often and have trouble getting erections.
Focus on the game, not the commercials, Raj.
把精力放比赛上 而不是广告 拉杰
I'm just saying, maybe if you people cut back on the beer,
you could get out of the bathroom
and satisfy your women without pharmaceutical help.
Raj, what are you doing here?
You were supposed to help me pimp out my Vespa.
are you under the impression that we're still friends?
You're not still grinding on the kite thing, are you?
It's not just the kite thing.
Every time we go some place, you think you can just
dump me whenever someone prettier comes along,
even though you don't have a shot with them.
I had a shot with that jogger.
Fine. Paint green flames on your little scooter with her.
It's not a little scooter.
It's the second biggest Vespa they make!
Are you watching football?
There's no fooling you.
Now, what is this sacks statistic they put up there?
All I know about Sacks is, my mother shops there.
Sacks，sacks Sacks, sacks...
It's football nom for when a quarterback is tackled
behind the line of scrimmage.
The line of scrimmage is the imaginary transverse line
separating the offense from the defense.
Sheldon knows football?
I mean, Quidditch, sure. But football?
Sheldon, how do you know this stuff?
I grew up in Texas.
Football is ubiquitous in Texas:
Pro football, college football,
high school football, peewee football...
In fact, every form of football except the original--
Which most Texans believe to be a Commie plot.
If you're interested, I also know all about frying meat
that isn't chicken as if it were chicken.
So you could teach me?
Football or chicken-fried meats?
I'm going to Penny's on Saturday
to watch a game with her friends
and I don't want to look like an idiot. I want to blend in.
If you want to blend in with Penny's friends,
I'd think looking like an idiot
would be the perfect camouflage.
Come on, Sheldon, please teach me about football.
别这样 谢尔顿 教我橄榄球吧
That's exactly what my father said.
"Come to the games. Watch the games."
Week in and week out from the time
I was five until I went off to college.
Longest seven years of my life.
Please, I'm asking you as a friend.
Are you making this a tier one friendship request?
- I really appreciate this. - Yeah, yeah.
-我非常感谢 -算了 算了
All right, Poindexter, sit down, shut up and listen.
那好 呆子 闭嘴 坐下听好
That's how my father always began
our football conversations.
And if you'd like,
I'll take you outside and teach you how to shoot
Close enough to racoon that craps itself.
When are you going to stop making Cylon toast?
When I have enough to destroy all the human toast
on the battlestar known as Galactica.
Is that what you're wearing to watch football at Penny's?
What's wrong with a football jersey?
That, however, appears to be a football cocktail dress.
I's the smallest size they had,
except the one for dogs.
I can't believe they had one for dogs.
Canine football fans are a common sight in Texas.
Cats, however, refuse to wear sporting apparel.
My sister found that out the hard way.
Anyway, wish me luck.
Am I correct in assuming that your attempt to be accepted
by Penny's peers is based on your desire to ensure
your continuing mating privileges with her?
Well, I wouldn't put it exactly that way
How would you put it?
Yeah, okay, like you said.
Huh. Seems like an awful lot of trouble
to go through for intercourse.
Don't you have access to women who will do it for money?
Another accepted usage for the term "ho."
I believe that social convention
dictate you not arriving empty-handed.
Would you like to bring some Cylon toast?
Yeah, no, I'm trying to fit in, not get laughed at.
不带 我想融入其中 才不想被嘲笑
What's funny about Cylon toast?
I brought you a little gift.
The kite you made me lose was an authentic Patang,
Indian fighting kite
that my brother sent to me from New Delhi.
It took me a day to put together and two days to paint.
This is Hello Kitty.
Yeah, but it comes with a little coin purse.
Wow, you just don't get it, do you?
Buying me something pretty isn't going
to make our problem just go away.
Look, I admit I haven't always been
the best friend I could be.
You've been a sucky friend, a sucky, sucky friend.
And you do it all the time.
Last week in the mall at Radio Shack, we were looking
for a phone with giant numbers for your mother,
and I suddenly realize you're not even there.
- I know, I know... - And Where were you?
Getting shot down by the girl at Hot Dog on a Stick.
But in my defense, she was gorgeous!
And working that squeezer to make the lemonade,
going and down and up and down.
It was like a free pole dance
right in the middle of the food court.
Hey, at least I can talk to women
without being drunk.
Excuse me, I have selective mutism,
a recognized medical disorder.
You're just a douche.
Maybe that's what this whole thing's about.
You're not mad at me,
you're mad at yourself.
No, I'm mad at you.
I hate myself, but I'm mad at you.
Fine. You're mad at me. I get it.
好吧 你生我气 我明白
How about we go spend the day together?
We'll go anywhere you want.
Let me take you someplace nice.
I-I do enjoy the La Brea Tar Pits.
Really, now? With the traffic and the parking?
The Tar Pits. Let's go.
Oh, why can't I stay mad at you?
Are you people watching this?
Is this amazing or what?
Sweetie, that's a highlight
from the '98 championship game.
Oh. Did not know that.
- How much beer have you had? - None, why?
-你喝了多少 -没喝 怎么
Oh. I was just kind of hoping you were drunk.
- Now we're back live. - Okay, yeah.
I can see the difference.
Oh, where's the flag? That's intentional grounding.
- Totally. - That completely was a forward pass,
Which they threw intentionally incomplete
To avoid loss of yardage or to conserve time
I can't believe they're not
Being penalized with the loss of a down
And by having to move the line of scrimmage
Back to the spot of the foul.
Here, have some pizza, sweetie.
来 吃块披萨 亲爱的
Penny, you know I'm lactose intolerant.
I know. I just need you stop talking.
Penny. Penny. Penny.
佩妮 佩妮 佩妮
- Sheldon, come in. - Thank you.
-谢尔顿 进来吧 -谢谢
I'd like to make a sandwich, but I'm out of bread.
There's some in the fridge.
You shouldn't keep your bread in the refrigerator.
Staleness is caused by crystallization of the starch molecules,
Which occurs faster at cool temperatures.
On Earth, we say "thank you."
So Leonard, how goes the mimesis?
You know. Mimesis.
An action in which the mimic takes on the properties
of a specific object or organism.
What the hell are you talking about?
I'm attempting to communicate with you
Without my meaning becoming apparent to those around you.
Let me try again.
Have the indigenous fauna
Accepted you as one of their own?
Nudge, nudge, wink, wink.
After I eat my sandwich, I'm taking Koothrappali's
Patang kite out for a test run.
Would you like to get your delta-wing raptor and join me?
I don't want to fly kites, Sheldon.
We're watching football here.
I was providing you with an alternative.
A courtesy I was never offered in similar circumstances.
The Oklahoma coach throw down a red flag
Indicating he's challenging the ruling on the field.
I hope he's right, 'cause if he'not,
It'll cost him one of his three time-outs.
You know, Leonard, honey,
I wouldn't mind if you wanted to go fly kites with Sheldon.
No, I'll watch the end of the game.
Besides, there's only three minutes left.
We've been here for hours.
And you're gonna be here for a couple more.
- Oh, you're kidding me. - No.
Nice meeting all of you.
So, yeah, anyway, that's my boyfriend.
是啊 那啥 那就是我男朋友
He is really smart.
I really like my saber-toothed cat.
Maybe after lunch, we can go to Marie Callender's
This is turning out to be a perfect Saturday.
Oh, man. Did you see the way she smiled at me?
No. This is our day.
If you want to chase after her,chase after her.
Ah, who am I kidding? I wouldn't have a shot with a girl like that.
开什么玩笑 那样的女孩 我一点机会都没有的
Don't put yourself down.
You're a very attractive man.
- You think so? - Yeah.
Absolutely. It wouldn't kill you
To take a Pilates class with me now and then,
But you have a certain wiry appeal
Yeah, well, it doesn't matter
'cause she wasn't really smiling at me.
Actually, in this case, I think she was.
