Isn’t it great when one of your favourite things references two of your other favourite things?

Sheldon: What kind of tea would you like?

Amy: I think I’m gonna try … green tea mixed with Lemon Zinger.

Sheldon: (doubtfully) Two tea bags in one cup. (acerbically) You’re not at a rave.

Sheldon: Now, imagine this: you and I, entering Stuart’s party, and all eyes turn to see America’s most beloved and glamorous couple …

Amy: Yeah?

Sheldon: R2-D2 and C-3PO. Dibs on Threepio.

Amy: Sheldon, when I said couples costume, I meant, like, Romeo and Juliet or Cinderella and Prince Charming, not two robots from some silly movie I don’t even like.

Sheldon: (shocked) OK. Now, I’m gonna let that slide because I know you’re hopped up on teabags.

In the most recent episode of the wonderful Big Bang Theory, Amy, Sheldon’s friend-who-is-a-girl (ie, girlfriend; Amy is like a female Sheldon, possibly more Sheldon-like than Sheldon), was having drinks with Penny and Bernadette when one of Penny (numerous) exes walks in with a delivery for the bar. Amy experiences some disconcerting physiological phenomona – namely, she gets a bit ‘excited’ when Zack says hello to her.

The following is from Amy and Sheldon’s conversation at work the following day (she’s dissecting a human brain while they have lunch):

Amy: Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to take my temperature.

Sheldon: Are you monitoring your circadian rhythms in order to identify your periods of maximum mental acuity? I did that one summer. [wistfully] Ah, youth.

Amy: No, I experienced some distressing symptoms last night, so I’m checking my vital signs every hour.

Sheldon: I’d be happy to create a chart and participate in a differential diagnosis.

Amy: Oh, that sounds like fun.

Sheldon: All right. What were the symptoms?

Amy: Elevated heart rate, moist palms, dry mouth and localised vascular throbbing.

Sheldon: Localised to what region?

Amy: Ears and genitalia.

Sheldon: Interesting. Not body parts that usually team up.

Later …

Sheldon: Possible explanations for your symptoms are – in descending order of likelihood – hyperthyroidism, premature menopause, hosting an alien parasite, or – and I only include it for the sake of covering absolutely all bases – sexual arousal.

Amy: [beat] Where would I have picked up an alien parasite?

Later …

Amy: Let’s look at this logically. I have a stomach – I get hungry. I have genitals – I have the potential for sexual arousal.

Sheldon: A cross we all must bear. You know, in difficult moments like this, I often turn to a force greater than myself.

Amy: Religion?

Sheldon: Star Trek.
