  • “I love his eidetic memory. It’s so sexy. Sheldon, what are the ingredients in Pringles?” “Dried potatoes, vegetable oil, corn flour, wheat starch, maltodextrin salt, and my favorite ingredient of all, uniformity.” “The uterus quivers, does it not?”
  • “Remarkable. In just under a half hour, 200 metric tons of fuel will ignite in a controlled explosion right beneath Howard’s keister. And all from a country whose entire contribution to the global economy has been Tetris and mail-order brides.”
  • “Oh, quick question. I missed it in the briefing. How much urine do these suits hold?”
  • “Oh, Howie, a little star. It’s beautiful. Put it on me.” “Okay, but I have to get it back from you so I can take it to the international space station. That way, when I come home, you will have a star that was actually in space.” “Oh…my God.” “Take that, every guy who’s ever bought you anything.”
  • “No, no, no, this is not the wedding I wanted. I want to wear my maid of honor dress and walk down the aisle with a hundred eyes on me while a string quartet plays “The Way You Look Tonight.” “That wasn’t going to be our processional music.” “Well, it was going to be mine!” “Thank you for the invitation but I have to decline because it doesn’t sound like something I’ll enjoy.” “Come on, Sheldon. It’ll be fun.” “That’s what you said about the Green Lantern movie. You were 114 minutes of wrong.” “So what do you say, Amy?” “Can I wear my maid of honor dress?” “Seriously? You’re going to wear that thing to City Hall?” “It’s all I have left! Are you going to take that from me too?”

  • “Amy, you look great.” “I know!”
  • “It wasn’t a real proposal.” “Why wasn’t it a real proposal?” “He asked her during coitus.”Did you get down on one knee or were you already there?”
  • “I can’t believe we’re not going to get married.” “Excuse me, I’m going to go see if the couple at the front of the line needs a maid of honor.”
  • “Hey, I know tons of people who got married in Vegas.” “Are any of them still married?” “Yeah…I mean not to the same people but…”
  • “Way to go, Raj!” “I keep telling you, if I wasn’t an astrophysicist, I would have been a party planner. It was always a coin flip.”
  • “I’ll do it, provided I can perform the ceremony in Klingon.” “No.” “What do you see in her?”
  • “Bernie, I have to go pick up my mother. I’ll be right back!” “Why can’t she drive herself?” “She doesn’t want to sit on her dress and wrinkle it so I’m going to lay her down in the back of my neighbor’s van!”
  • “Your new mother-in-law’s a piece of work.” “Not now, dad.” “She’s got a bigger moustache than me.”
  • “Bernadette — I want to thank you for allowing me to be your maid of honor. I also want you to know that I’d be happy to do it again, if this marriage craps out.” “Thank you, Amy. Very touching.”

  • “Would you like some aloe vera? You just got burned.”
  • “OK, my turn. Howard. Bernadette. (Sheldon starts speaking Klingon).” “Sheldon! I told you no Klingon!” “Fine. I’ll do it in English. But it loses something. The need to find another human being, to share one’s life with, has always puzzled me. Maybe because I am so interesting all by myself. With that being said, may you find as much happiness with each other as I find on my own. The Klingon would have made you cry.”
  • “Howard Joel Wolowitz, like you this is going to be short and sweet. I love you with all my heart and soul and promise to be with you forever.” “Bernadette Maryann Rostenkowski…” “SPEAK UP!” “FROM NOW ON, SHE’S THE ONLY WOMAN THAT CAN YELL AT ME! Until I met you, I couldn’t imagine spending my life with just one person. And now I can’t imagine spending one day of it without you.”
  • “By the power vested in us, by the State of California — and the Klingon High Council — we now pronounce you husband and wife.”
