Sheldon is making English muffins when Penny enters the room. He talks to her about last night and that he could hear a thing or two.

(Season 3, Episode 3: The Lunar Excitation)



Sheldon: In what universe is this low-pulp? Good morning, Penny.

Penny: Do you have eyes in the back of your head?

Sheldon: When one gets beaten up every other day in school, one of necessity develops a keen sense of hearing. Incidentally, one can get beaten up in school simply by referring to oneself as one. I’m making English muffins. Would you like an English muffin?

Penny: Oh, thanks, I’m not hungry.

Sheldon: FYI, my noise-cancelling headphones proved ineffective last night.

Penny: Yeah, sorry about that.

Sheldon: As a native Texan, I must say I’ve never heard the phrase yee-haw used in quite that context.

Penny: Oh, God.

Sheldon: Oh, God. That I’ve heard on multiple occasions.
