Penny: Howard, you’re going to throw away a great girl like Bernadette because you’re holding out for some ridiculous fantasy? Howard: Hey, just because you settled doesn’t mean I have to. Leonard: Excuse me, I’m sitting here. Penny: Hey, I did not settle for Leonard. I mean, obviously, he isn’t the kind of guy I usually go out with, you know, physically.

Penny: You really didn’t like it, Sheldon? Sheldon: No, on the contrary. I found the Grinch to be a relatable, engaging character. I was really with him right until the point where he succumbed to social convention and returned the presents and saved Christmas. What a buzzkill that was. Leonard: When we watch Frosty the Snowman, he roots for the sun. Sheldon: Excuse me, but the sun is essential for all life on Earth. Frosty is merely a bit of frozen supernatural ephemera in a stolen hat. A crime, by the way, for which he is never brought to account.
