I heard you could punch a hole in these
and make them double-sided.
Then it would have more storage?
Yes, but I didn't pay for a double-sided floppy disk.
So it's an ethical dilemma.
We have to take a shower in the locker room next period,
and that's what you're worried about?
Actually, I have a bathing suit under my pants.
That girl just took a book on geostatistics.
That's not required reading for any science course.
Maybe she wants to squash a spider with it.
No, look, she's reading it.
不是 你看 她在读
Who is this mystery woman?
Should we invite her to have lunch with us?
I don't know. So far, it's just been you and me,
and we know that works.
Do we really want to mess with success?
We could think of it as an experiment.
Oh, you do know how to push my buttons.
All right, go ask her.
Your lack of testosterone makes you adorable to women.
I can't argue with that.
My name is Sheldon.
Yeah, you're Sheldon Cooper.
Well, there's only one nine-year-old in high school,
and you still have your baby teeth.
She knows who I am. It's going well.
Would you like to have lunch with me and my friend?
So we can have a spirited conversation about geostatistics.
You really are as smart as everybody says.
My teeth are small, but my prefrontal cortex is enormous.

The addition of Libby brought
a level of sophistication to our lunchtime discussion.
Her mom also packed extra string cheese,
which is a well-known social lubricant.
You're gonna be a geologist.
Why'd you choose that?
When I was a little girl, my grandparents took me
to Carlsbad Caverns, and I was hooked.
Exploring caves, that is super cool.
Disagree. Dark, enclosed spaces are terrifying.
I get scared putting on a sweatshirt.
Hmm. I've seen it.
Do you know what you're going to major in in college?
I'm leaning towards quantum chromodynamics, but who knows?
A few years ago, I would've said choo-choo trains.
Oh, geology for sure.
When did you decide that?
A long time ago. Eat your apple slices.
So we eat in the library every day.
You're welcome to join us.
It's much better than the cafeteria.
It's quiet, and a lot less food gets thrown at us.
Yeah. Maybe I'll see y'all tomorrow.
Maybe y'all will.
So how was school today?
Sheldon's got a girlfriend.
- What? - That's not true.
Oh, yes, it is. I seen him talking to her at school.
Sheldon Lee Cooper, you dog.
What grade is she in?
An older woman.
Most everybody's older than me.
Why is that nice?
So what do you think, George?
Is it time to have "The talk" with him?
No talk. Nobody's talking.
If "The talk" Is in regards to human reproduction,
I already understand how that works.
How do you know that?
And so, our little social circle
grew from two to three.
An early example of how people are just drawn to me.
Are you saying that without geology,
there'd be no theory of evolution?
Charles Lyell taught Charles Darwin
the Earth was much, much older than anyone thought,
which gave Darwin the courage to figure out
all species evolved over billions of years.
That's good. I can use that
to humiliate my pastor at Sunday school.
I don't know what's more beautiful,
your mind or your eyes.
You know spying on kids is creepy.
I wasn't spying on kids, I was s-spying on your brother.
Why won't you just go inside?
Well, then, it wouldn't be spying, now would it?
You didn't mention she was black.
No, 'course not.
Then why bring it up?
It just wasn't what I was expecting.
What were you expecting?
Why are you right here?
They've got some books in there about Martin Luther King.
Maybe you should go read one.
So why did it take people so long
to believe in continental drift,
when it's obvious that Africa and South America
- fit together like a puzzle? - No, they don't.
People didn't understand continental drift
because they didn't understand seafloor spreading.
and delighted by your brain.
I'm just delighted by it.
"Geologists lead a sedimentary lifestyle."
Libby, that is a good one.
Can you believe what's going on with him?
He's been on the phone with that girl for almost an hour.
Sheldon's got a girlfriend.
What are the odds?
She's not a girlfriend,
it's more of a mental rapport.
That's where it starts.
I did win you over with my superior intellect.
It was your motorcycle and you know it.
Good thing it wasn't your masculine physique,
because that is long gone.
Why do you think I kept the motorcycle?
How come he gets to tie up the phone and I can't?
Because what is happening in there is called a miracle,
and God-fearing people do not get in the way of those.
if you ever find a girlfriend,
maybe you can go on a double date with your brother.
She's not his girlfriend.
And I can find one...
I'm just not looking.
Yes, that was a geology joke.
We gotta get that Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue
away from him before he's ruined forever.
Oh, Libby, Libby, Libby.
What is happening?
What was happening was,
like many men before me,
I was being seduced by the exotic world of geology.
We searched for tektites in a nearby ravine.
Tektites are natural glass
formed during meteorite impacts.
They also bear a close resemblance to raccoon feces,
so I wisely adopted a "No touching tektites" policy.
It's called perfect cleavage
when gypsum separates this cleanly.
I was so proud of Tam
for not making an immature cleavage joke.
Look at me, I'm touching cleavage.
Until he made one.
And, like Mother Nature's pinata,
geodes contained a secret surprise inside.
But you didn't have to suffer
through a birthday party to enjoy it.
Well, I think I figured out the problem.
I'm a terrible mechanic.
- What's up? - Well,
Sheldon's been spending quite a bit of time
with this Libby girl, lately.
So isn't he a little young
to be hanging with teenagers?
Oh, he's only young on the outside.
Inside, he's an old man.
I'm being serious.
And with that bowtie, he's old on the outside, too.
Sorry I bothered.
What did you think was gonna happen
when we sent him to high school?
I don't know, that he'd learn stuff,
and then, come back home and be my baby forever.
Mare, it's good for him.
He may start college in a couple years, what happens then?
Off the top of my head, he and I share a dorm room.
You know I'd laugh at that if I didn't kind of believe you.
I need to use the bathroom, but it can get uncivilized in there.
Anyone in there now?
I don't know. I was afraid to find out.
Where have you been all my life?
That's your problem. Keep moving.
- Thank you. - Happy to help.
Is there any chance you'd be available to stand guard at 1:45?
You have a bathroom schedule?
Whoever said the quickest way to a man's heart
is through his stomach
did not consider his tiny bladder.
I think the best space shuttle name so far is Discovery.
What about Challenger?
- Too in-your-face. - Atlantis?
A fictional island that couldn't stay afloat?
- There's the Enterprise. - There is,
and it's on Star Trek, where it belongs.
You know they're playing a space shuttle movie
at the Museum of Natural Science.
- It's in IMAX. - I heard about that.
The screen is supposed to be huge.
They also have a great geology exhibit.
Well, it's in Houston--
- how are we gonna get there? - I'll drive.
Oh, I would love to see a movie with you.
Don't you need to ask your parents first?
- No, Sheldon, I don't. - But won't they worry where you are?
-不用 谢尔顿 -但他们不会担心你在哪儿吗
Glad you're not my son.
And now he wants to see a movie in Houston with them.
I don't know, it's in MixMax or something.
So you're saying I got to drive to Houston?
No. This girl Libby's gonna drive.
It's not great, George.
I don't want my little boy in some car
with a teenager behind the wheel.
All high school kids drive.
Yeah? Well, I don't like it.
Would you let me get in a car
with a stranger when I was young?
Well, nobody ever asked you out, so it didn't really matter.
Hey. I want to talk to you.
Hold on. Let me bring this into the station
so as not to disappoint my commuters.
They'd like to get home to their families.
I gave it a lot of thought, and I'm afraid I can't allow you
to drive to Houston with your friends.
Well, honey, you're still a little boy.
I don't think it's right.
I'm not a little boy. I'm a high school student.
I'm sorry, I made up my mind.
If you'd really like to see this movie,
I'm willing to drive you.
Maybe we could meet your friends there.
I don't want my mommy to take me.
Well, then, you're not going.
Anger is an ugly emotion.
Unbridled rage even more so.
And when it bubbled up inside me,
I channeled it the only way I knew how.
I cleaned the house like a man possessed.
I can't hear Oprah!
Sheldon, I need to get in there.
Poop at Meemaw's!
You missed a spot, weirdo.
What am I supposed to do with this?
Send him over to my house before he runs out of gas.
All right, I'll make a deal with you.
You can go to Houston with your friends,
but I want to meet this girl first.
That's very reasonable.
Now, can you please reach the dryer sheets?
I get vertigo on the step stool.
I've often been accused
of being stubborn and willful,
but sometimes it works like gangbusters.
You have a beautiful home.
- Thank you. - Thank you.
I hope you'll forgive me, I just wanted to meet
the person driving my nine-year-old son to Houston.
I wasn't talking to you, Tam.
And I just wanted to make certain
that you've had no traffic tickets
or, heaven forbid, accidents.
No, ma'am. I'm a very safe driver.
没有 女士 我开车很小心
- You've got nothing to worry about. - Good.
Good. Have you made this trip before?
Mm-hmm. You smoke marijuana?
- Mom! - No, ma'am.
-妈妈 -不吸 女士
I find this very reassuring.
I had some trepidation, but...
having met you, I'm feeling a lot better.
Good. You've got nothing to worry about, Mrs. Cooper.
那就好 你没什么可担心的 库珀太太
I've been babysitting kids for years.
I've been babysitting kids for years.
They'll have to go without me.
Shelly, you okay?
You want to talk about it?
You want me to leave you alone?
I thought Libby and I were equals,
but she thinks of me as a child.
Calling me that isn't helping right now.
She is almost twice your age.
There are people five times my age
that are stupider than me.
This is not about being smart.
- What else is there? - Well...
there's other kinds of maturity.
None of your business.
Again, it's none of your business.
Fine. Celeste and I know when we aren't wanted.
Different kinds of maturity.
There's emotional maturity, physical maturity,
all things that have nothing to do with being smart.
Are you suggesting I'm not emotionally mature?
I was hinting at it.
Regardless, I'm not interested in making any more friends.
Oh, I don't think that's how you really feel.
From now on, it's a hermit's life for me.
I bet, when you grow up, you will be surrounded
by lots of smart, wonderful friends.
I can't see that happening.
the Lord works in mysterious ways.
And here we go with the God talk.
How was the IMAX movie?
Okay, status. Find them?
好的 状态 找到他们了吗
What are you doing?
What do you think I'm doing?
Move your arm before I rip it off.
It got a little uncomfortable.
Libby's got feelings for me,
but I think it's better we just stay friends.
I've been giving geology some more thought.
I've decided it's not really a science.
- It's not? - No, it's more like a hobby.
-不是吗 -不是 比较像是爱好
sometimes a person can be both incredibly intelligent
and full of baloney.
