Penny is in the shower and asks Leonard to do her a favor. Unfortunately, the favor is not what Leonard thought it would be.



Penny: Hey, Leonard?

Leonard: The hair products are Sheldon’s.

Penny: Okay, um, can I ask you a favor?

Leonard: A favor? Sure, you can ask me a favor, I would do you a favor for you.

Penny: It’s okay if you say no.

Leonard: Oh, I’ll probably say yes.

Penny: It’s just not the kind of thing you ask a guy you’ve just met.

Leonard: Wow.

Scene: Leonard and Sheldon, Inside Leonard’s car

Sheldon: I really think we should examine the chain of causality here.

Leonard: Must we?

Sheldon: Event A: A beautiful woman stands naked in our shower. Event B: We drive half way across town to retrieve a television set from the aforementioned woman’s ex-boyfriend. Query, on what plane of existence is there even a semi-rational link between these events?



to examine = to look at something carefully and in detail in order to discover something about it

chain of causality / chain of causation = the links that bind cause and effect together

causality = the relationship of cause and effect

to retrieve = to find and bring back something

aforementioned (very formal) = mentioned earlier

planes of existence / spiritual planes = = That is an esoteric term. The idea behind it is that people have different ways of viewing the world and different notions of how the world functions.

semi-rational = partly rational

(definitions partly taken from the Cambridge and Collins Dictionary)
