Title: All Magical Cards Scenes 


1. Howard: Hey, Raj, wanna see a new magic trick I’ve been working on?

2. Sheldon: Howard, if I may interject here with a piece of friendly advice.

3. Sheldon: I s working on magic tricks really how you want to spend your time?

4. Sheldon: Granted, you’re just an engineer, but that doesn’t mean you might not someday build a geegaw or a thingamabob that may get you a thank you in someone else’s Nobel prize acceptance speech.

5. Raj: Is the trick making him disappear?

6. Raj: Sure, let’s see it.

7. Howard: Here, shuffle these.

8. Raj: Okay.

9. Howard: Now spread them out on the table face down.

10. Howard: Pick one, look at it.

11. Raj: Okay.

12. Howard: Now remember your card, put it back in the deck.

13. Sheldon: Is it any wonder he doesn’t have a doctorate?

14. Howard: Remind me, what’s your birthday?

15. Raj: October sixth.

16. Howard: Okay, October is the tenth month.

17. Howard: So ten, one plus zero is one, plus six is seven.

18. Howard: Turn over the seventh card.

19. Raj: How about that!

20. Howard: Is that your card?

21. Raj: Yes, it is. Very cool!

22. Sheldon: It’s not cool.

23. Sheldon: It’s a childish trick designed to confuse and intrigue simpletons.

24. Sheldon: How’d you do it?

25. Howard: A magician never reveals his secrets.

26. Howard: But surely a future Nobel prize winner can figure it out.

27. Sheldon: Fine. Give me a second.

28. Howard: You ever notice when he thinks real hard, it smells like bacon?

29. Random man: Oh, hey!

30. Leonard: Sorry! Oop!

31. Leonard: Sorry! Pardon me! Oh, I’m so sorry! My fault!

32. Leonard: Check it out. I just got contacts.

………………………………………………………………

33. Penny: One, two, three, four, five. No way.

34. Howard: That’s your card, right?

35. Penny: Seven of clubs! That is amazing!

36. Sheldon: It’s not amazing.

37. Sehldon: All magic tricks are merely a combination of manipulation and misdirection with the occasional dwarf in a box wiggling his feet.

38. Howard: Oh, really?

39. Howard: So how did I do it?

40. Sheldon: Well, I don’t care how you did it.

41. Sheldon: I have more important things to think about.

42. Sheldon: Clearly, the cards are marked.

43. Howard: I thought you had more important things to think about.

44. Sheldon: I do. You just happen to have caught me on a break.

45. Sheldon: Oh, let me see those cards.

46. Penny: Oh, big deal. Not knowing is part of the fun.

47. Sheldon: Not knowing is part of the fun.

48. Sheldon: Was that the motto of your community college?

………………………………………………………………

49. Sheldon: This deck is rigged in some fashion.

50. Howard: Fine. Get another deck and I’ll do the trick with that.

51. Sheldon: So you’re saying this is a regulation deck?

52. Howard: I’m saying believe in magic, you muggle.

53. Penny: You know, well, I’m happy Leonard’s found someone.

54.Penny: Not that anybody asked.

………………………………………………………………

55. Howard: And was your card the jack of diamonds?

56. Penny: Oh, unbelievable! Know how he did it yet?

57. Sheldon: Um…

58. Penny: Aw, he has the same look my little nephew gets when he can’t figure out how I got his nose.

59. Howard: You know, I have some remedial magic tricks that might be more your speed.

60. Howard: Like, ooh, look! The pencil’s rubber!

61. Penny: Hey, I think I know how you did the card trick.

62. Sheldon: Oh, oh, please, if I don’t know, you don’t know.

63. Sheldon: That’s axiomatic.

64. Penny: Come here.

65. Howard: You’re right.

66. Penny: Not too bad for someone who doesn’t know what axiomatic means.

………………………………………………………………

67. Sheldon: Leonard? Leonard? Leonard?

68. Leonard: What?

69. Sheldon: I think I figured out Wolowitz’s magic trick, and I need you to pick a card.

70. Leonard: I am not opening that door, Sheldon.

71. Sheldon: As you wish. Pick a card, put it back, and prepare to be amazed.

72. Sheldon: Did you pick one?

73. Leonard: Yep.

74. Sheldon: Is this your card?

75. Leonard: Nope.

76. Sheldon: Drat. Is this your card?

77. Leonard: No.

78. Sheldon: I’ll be right back.

………………………………………………………………

79. Sheldon: Pick a card, Sheldon.

80. Sheldon: Now look at it, and put it back in the deck.

81. Sheldon: Now do you remember your card?

82. Sheldon: Of course I do, I have an eidetic memory. My apologies.

83. Sheldon: Now shuffle the cards. Shuffling. Wait here.

84. Sheldon: Processing image, cross-referencing.

85. Leonard: Whatcha doin’?

86. Sheldon: I’m reverse engineering Wolowitz’s magic trick.

87. Leonard: What’s up with the infrared cameras?

88. Sheldon: I’m measuring residual heat levels on the playing cards to determine which one’s been touched.

89. Sheldon: By the way, if you hope to have children, I suggest you switch from briefs to boxers.

90. Sheldon: Your testicles look a tad warm.

91. Leonard: Holy crap, are you connected to the Oak Ridge National Laboratory?

92. Sheldon: Yes. I’m using their Cray Supercomputer to analyze shuffling patterns.

93. Leonard: Sheldon, that computer is used for National defense.

94. Leonard: Hacking into it is a Federal crime.

95. Sheldon: Relax, we’re not under attack right now.

96. Leonard: Okay, I’m leaving before the black helicopters get here.

97. Sheldon: And is this my card? Rats!

98. Sheldon: I wonder if Howard used a radioactive tracer.

99. Sheldon: Where am I going to find Uranium-235 this time of night?

100. Sheldon: Come on, Craigslist.

………………………………………………………………

101. Sheldon: Oh, I’ve been meaning to tell you, I figured out your magic trick.

102. Howard: Really?

103. Sheldon: Oh, yes. In fact, I improved upon it.

104. Howard: I’d love to see that.

105. Howard: How about you, Raj?

106. Raj: Beefaroni and a show?

107. Raj: How do you turn that down?

108. Sheldon: All right. Pick a card.

109. Howard: Okay.

110. Sheldon: Bippity-boppity-boo.

111. Howard: What’s with the wand and the beep?

112. Sheldon: The wand is called showmanship, and the beep is none of your business.

113. Sheldon: Oh! Excuse me, I’m getting a text message completely unrelated to this magic trick.

114. Sheldon: Oh, look, my dry cleaning’s ready.

115. Sheldon: And your card was the five of spades. Ta-da.

116. Raj: These cards have barcodes on them.

117. Raj: The wand is a reader.

118. Raj: It’s transmitting to your phone.

119. Sheldon: I said, ta-da. Show’s over.

120. Howard: That’s pathetic.

121. Howard: Let me show you how a real magician does it.

122. Howard: Raj, take a card. Don’t let me see it.

123. Raj: Okay.

124. Howard: Three of clubs.

125. Raj: Son of a gun, you’re blowing my mind!

126. Howard: Bippity-boppity-boo-yah!

127. Sheldon: That does it. I’m getting uranium.

128. Raj: You ever gonna tell him?

129. Howard: Maybe. When it stops being fun.

130. Raj: So never.

………………………………………………………………

131. Howard: Incoming.

132. Raj: Hi!

133. Howard: Hey!

134. Sheldon: Hello.

135. Raj: Why so glum, chum?

136. Sheldon: Apparently, you can’t hack into a government supercomputer and then try to buy uranium without the Department of Homeland Security tattling to your mother.

137. Howard: Oh, that’s too bad. Figure out the magic trick yet?

138. Sheldon: Figure out the magic trick yet?

139. Howard: Want me to tell you how to do it?

140. Sheldon: No.

141. Howard: I’ll show you one more time. Raj?

142. Sheldon: Hang on. This time do it with me, so I can make sure there’s no monkey business.

143. Howard: All right. Two of hearts.

144. Sheldon: I hate you.

145. Howard: Yeah, he’s gonna win the Nobel prize.
