Howard is absent, and the three remaining friends are having problems because of that, or rather, Sheldon has.



Penny: Alright fellas, I gotta go. Good luck.

Leonard: Maybe we should have asked if we could go dancing with her and her girlfriend.

Sheldon: Okay, assuming we could dance, which we can’t, there are three of us and two of them.

Leonard: So?

Sheldon: It’s the Chinese restaurant all over again. I assure you that cutting a dumpling in thirds is child’s play compared with three men, each attempting to dance with 67% of a woman.

Leonard: Aaah, for God’s sake, Sheldon, you are driving me crazy.

Sheldon: Your anger’s not with me, sir, but with basic mathematics.

Leonard: No, I’m pretty sure my anger’s with you.

Raj: What’s happening to us? We’re falling apart.

Leonard: Who are you calling?

Sheldon: The only man who can restore any semblance of balance to our universe.

Howard:  Hi this is Howard Wolowitz.

Christie: And this is Christie Van Der Bell.

Howard: We can’t get to the phone right now because we’re having sex.

Christie: You’re not going to put that on your message are you?

Howard: No, I’m just kidding, I’ll re-record it.
