Leonard doesn’t like the pants he got from his girlfriend. So, he is ruining them deliberately by using too much fabric softener.

(Season 2, Episode 10: The Vartabedian Conundrum)



Penny: Oh hey.

Leonard: Oh, good. Do you have any fabric softener?

Penny: Yeah, sure. What are you washing? A crocodile?

Leonard: No, the pants that Stephanie got me.

Penny: Oh, sweetie, you can’t machine-wash these. They’ll be ruined.

Leonard: Are you sure?

Penny: Absolutely.

Leonard: Oh, no. I wish you’d told me that sooner.
