The Big Bang Theory Script

Title: Sheldon Buys a Gift Basket 

1. Sheldon: Did you forget your key? I don’t see anything in here a woman would want.

2. Howard: You’re kidding. You’ve got lotions and bath oils and soaps, that’s the estrogen hat trick.

3. Sheldon: What it is, is a cacophonous assault of eucalyptus, bayberry, cinnamon and vanilla. It’s as if my head were trapped in the pajamas of a sultan.

4. Raj: Sheldon, if you don’t like this stuff, let’s just go next door and build her a bear.

5. Sheldon: I told you before, bears are terrifying.

6. Howard: Come on, bath stuff, it’s perfect! You got a scented candle, a cleansing buff, spearmint and green tea scented bath oil, promotes relaxation.

7. Sheldon: That presupposes Penny is tense.

8. Raj: She knows you. She’s tense. We all are. Buy a basket!

9. Howard: Excuse me, we’re ready.

10. Sheldon: No, we’re not. Let’s say for a moment that I accept the bath item gift hypothesis, I now lay the following conundrum at your feet, which size?

11. Howard: This one. Let’s go.

12. Sheldon: You put no thought into that.

13. Howard: I’m sorry. Uh, this one. Let’s go!

14. Sheldon: I have insufficient data to proceed. Excuse me, miss?

15. Assistant: Yes?

16. Sheldon: If I were to give you this gift basket, based on that action alone and no other data, infer and describe the hypothetical relationship that exists between us.

17. Assistant: Excuse me?

18. Sheldon: Here. Now, are we friends? Colleagues? Lovers? Are you my grandmother?

19. Assistant: I don’t understand what you’re talking about and you’re making me a little uncomfortable.

20. Howard: See? Sounds just like you and Penny. We’ll take it.
