Sheldon annoys Howard and Raj at work, and they send him away. Sheldon doesn’t fully understand why.



Howard: Sheldon, there’s a diploma in my office that says I have a master’s in engineering.

Sheldon: And you also have a note from your mother that says I love you, Bubele. But neither of those is a cogent argument for titanium over nanotubes.

Howard: Sheldon.

Sheldon: Yes.

Howard: Go away.

Sheldon: Did Leonard tell you to say that?

Howard: No, I thought of it all by myself.

Sheldon: Huh. It can’t be a coincidence. There must be some causal link I’m missing.

Scene: Raj is exiting his office.

Raj: Go away. (Sheldon exits)

Sheldon: Curiouser and curiouser.

Bubele = a Yiddish word meaning “little one”

cogent = A cogent argument is clearly expressed and persuades people to believe it.

nanotube = a tubular molecule composed of a large number of carbon atoms
