Learn some unconventional dating vocabulary by listening to Leslie asking Leonard some really weird questions on their first date.
Leslie: So, how many children do you think we should have? (Leonard splutters and coughs) I’m sorry, that was a little abrupt.
Leonard: A little.
Leslie: I mean there are so many things to talk about before we discuss reproduction.
Leonard: I sure hope so.
Leslie: Besides shortness, what genetic weaknesses run in your family?
Sheldon (entering): I’m sorry to interrupt, battery’s dying. Continue.
Leonard: Uh, genetic weaknesses, right, um, there’s the lactose intolerance.
Sheldon: Don’t forget the male pattern baldness. When his uncles sit around the dinner table they look like a half carton of eggs. (Exits. He trails an extension cord after him. Eventually goes tight a couple of times, then falls loose.)
Leonard: Okay, now my uncles are bald, but my Aunt Edna is one of the hairiest women you will ever meet. So… Sweet lady. It always tickles when she hugs me.
