Sheldon wants to talk about Leonard’s girlfriend with Penny. So he brings some banana bread, hoping to be invited in to chat.

(Season 2, Episode 9: The White Asparagus Triangulation)



Sheldon: Penny. Penny. Penny.

Penny: What?

Sheldon: This is banana bread.

Penny: This is a doorknob.

Sheldon: It’s my understanding that an unsolicited gift of food can be a precursor to an impromptu invitation to come in and chat.

Penny: Sheldon, would you like to come in?

Sheldon: I suppose I could spare a few minutes. Were you robbed?

Penny: No.

Sheldon: How can you be sure?

Penny: Sheldon, what do you want?

Sheldon: I’m certain this will come as no surprise to you, but Leonard is failing in yet another relationship.

Penny: He’s having problems with Stephanie?

Sheldon: She’s sending virtual livestock to random men on the internet.
