(Penny and Leonard’s apartment: living room)

Ellen (on TV): Have a seat, thanks for being here. I feel the same way about you.

Raj: This is nice. All my friends hanging out, watching Ellen. It's like, what am I gonna do with my other two wishes?

Amy: It's not nice. She's having on the scientists who are trying to steal our Nobel Prize.

Sheldon: Although I will enjoy watching her expose Pemberton and Campbell for the coattail-riding frauds that they are.

Leonard: That is Ellen's brand, gotcha journalism.

Penny: Yeah, you should've seen her take down John Krasinski last week. Got him to admit he loved his wife. It was brutal.

Ellen (on TV): All right, our next guests are a couple of physicists... Don't turn the channel. They've been doing some viral videos online about what it's like to be in the running for a Nobel Prize. Please welcome Doctors Greg Pemberton and Kevin Campbell.

Bernadette: Why does she even want to have scientists on?

Sheldon: Uh, silly question. Who else will give her audience causal explanations of natural phenomena?

Howard: I love you, honey, but think.

Ellen (on TV): So you guys have discovered something pretty amazing in the universe. Obviously, I understand, uh, high-level physics because I'm a comedian, but... Can you explain it to the audience?

Greg Pemberton (on TV): Well, I don't know, I'm not sure we're even smart enough to understand it.

Sheldon: Look, look, the audience is laughing at them. It's starting.

Amy: I hate to say it, Sheldon, but I think the audience likes them.

Sheldon: Well, that will all change when Ellen asks them how super-asymmetry explains the cosmological excess of matter over anti-matter and they panic, like Leonard trying to do a pull-up.

Leonard: Hey, what'd I do?

Penny: Not a pull-up.

Ellen (on TV): People have been loving your videos, especially the-the songs that you've been posting.

Greg Pemberton (on TV): Oh, thanks.

Kevin Campbell (on TV): Thank you.

Ellen (on TV): Uh, this may be pushing it, but I have to ask. Would you mind singing one of those for us right now?

Kevin Campbell (on TV): Oh, why not?

Greg Pemberton (on TV): All right.

Sheldon: Come on, Ellen, they're right there. Go for the jugular.

Kevin Campbell & Greg Pemberton (on TV): ♪ Let's get physicist, physicist - I want to get physicist - Let's get into physicist - Let me hear your boson talk ♪

Kevin Campbell (on TV): Come on, Ellen. ♪ Let me hear your boson talk... ♪


Sheldon: Dr. Pemberton… Dr. Campbell… Doctors Pemberton and Campbell.

Greg Pemberton: Morning, buddy.

Sheldon: I am not your buddy.

Kevin Campbell: What's wrong?

Sheldon: I'll tell you what's wrong. You went on TV and were charming.

Kevin Campbell: Thanks, man. That's what my mom said.

Greg Pemberton: W-Why don't you come in and have some parfait?

Kevin Campbell: Yeah, we ordered it from room service; it cost, like, 12 bucks. It's just yogurt in a glass.

Sheldon: I don't want your yogurt.

Kevin Campbell: Then what do you want?

Sheldon: I want you to hold a press conference where you admit that you blindly stumbled into super-asymmetry and it was really our discovery.

Greg Pemberton: Oh. No, thanks.

Kevin Campbell: You know, just because we proved something by accident doesn't mean we didn't prove it.

Greg Pemberton: Yeah, I wasn't trying to prove that my wife was cheating on me when I came home early one Friday, but I'm still sleeping on his couch.

Kevin Campbell: I told you, you can do better than her.

Greg Pemberton: Thanks. It just hurts.

Kevin Campbell: And when you win that Nobel Prize, she's gonna realize that she was wrong, you are not a fraud.

Sheldon: She is not wrong.

Kevin Campbell: Wow, I can't believe you're siding with Linda.

Greg Pemberton: Shame on you.

(Caltech: mess)

Sheldon: Look at this. They posted another video. It's not even about science. They're on a celebrity bus tour.

Raj: Those are fun. I-I went on one and saw Tom Hanks talking to his gardener. He's even nice when you plant the wrong colour azaleas.

Leonard: Those guys are good at self-promoting, so what? No one ever won a Nobel for being nice.

Raj: Yeah, but if they did, do you know who would win one?

Howard: Are you gonna say Tom Hanks?

Raj: He picked up a shovel and helped the guy replant.

Siebert: Dr. Cooper, there you are. I just wanted to tell you not to worry about this Pemberton and Campbell publicity blitz.

Sheldon: Are you worried?

Siebert: Not at all. Not even a little bit. Look, I-It doesn't matter if they have popular support, we're gonna get the scientific community behind us.

Leonard: He's right, the Nobel Prize is about the work, and as your fellow scientists, we support you and Amy.

Siebert: That's great, Scooby Gang. Now, the university is gonna host a reception for you and Dr. Fowler where we invite as many academic luminaries as we can, uh, give them a chance to meet you, hear about your work.

Leonard: Uh, that's a great idea.

Siebert: Uh, yeah. Who needs to be likable when you have Nobel Laureates campaigning for you?

Sheldon: Oh, yeah... Wait a minute. Do you not think we're likable?

Siebert: That's what's great about you, you never stop asking the tough questions.

(Bernadette and Howard’s house: living room)

Howard: Hey. Kids asleep?

Bernadette: Nope. I've been trying to get them down for hours. Apparently, Halley's afraid of the dark now and I can't turn on the night-light 'cause it makes Michael cry.

Howard: Why doesn't he like the night-light?

Bernadette: Jot that down, we can ask him as soon as he learns to speak. We can also find out what's so damn funny about birds.

Howard: I'll go talk to her.

Bernadette: I don't know why she's suddenly so afraid of everything.

Howard: Honey, remember, she's my child, too.

(On baby phone)

Howard: Hey, sweetie, I heard you were afraid of the dark. I know someone else who was afraid of the dark once. Your daddy, when he was in space. And just like you, I was wearing a full diaper.

(Sheldon and Amy’s apartment)

Amy: Hey, good news. They're inviting several Nobel Laureates to our reception.

Sheldon: Oh, great, like who?

Amy: Uh... Makoto Kobayashi.

Sheldon: Da... Ooh.

Amy: What?

Sheldon: Well, I may have been less than kind to him about his Nobel Prize win.

Amy: Why?

Sheldon: I was jealous, angry and new to Twitter. It was a dangerous combination.

Amy: Okay, so scratch Kobayashi. Uh, George Smoot's on here.

Sheldon: We have a history.

Amy: Saul Perlmutter?

Sheldon: Aww.

Amy: What about Kip Thorne?

Sheldon: That was a misunderstanding. I didn't know he was right behind me.

Amy: So you've alienated everyone we need to help us?

Sheldon: Well, Amy, if I had known that someday we'd need them, I would never have insulted them.

Amy: Well, that doesn't make it better.

Sheldon: Oh. Well, it's also not true.

(Bernadette and Howard’s house: living room)

Stuart: Hey.

Bernadette: Hey.

Stuart: Oh, that's cute. Did Halley draw that at preschool?

Bernadette: I drew it.

Stuart: Well, good night.

Bernadette: It's supposed to be an astronaut.

Stuart: And I'm supposed to be living on my own at this age, but here we are.

Bernadette: Halley was scared and Howard told her the sweetest story about when he was in space and I thought I could turn it into a book for her and Michael.

Stuart: Oh, well, I mean, I am an artist. Uh, I-if you want, I could do the drawings.

Bernadette: Really? That'd be amazing.

Stuart: Yeah, it'd be fun. And a, a nice change of pace from what I usually draw.

Bernadette: What do you usually draw?

Stuart: Well, good night.

(Penny and Leonard’s apartment: kitchen)

Penny: Someone texting you?

Leonard: Uh, no, I just met my exercise goal for the day.

Penny: By doing the dishes?

Leonard: Hey, you have your goals, I have mine.

Amy: Hello.

Sheldon: What are you two doing?

Leonard: Mm, just finishing a workout.

Penny: What's up?

Amy: Do you have any cookie dough?

Penny: Uh, I think so. Let me see. Yeah, we've got, uh, chocolate chip and oatmeal raisin.

Sheldon: Oatmeal raisin? I know at least two things wrong with that cookie.

Amy: It's for the Nobel Laureates. We need them on our side, but unfortunately, Sheldon...

Penny: No. "Unfortunately, Sheldon..." that's all you got to say.

Leonard: Well, that's... so you need these people's support and you're sending them baked goods?

Penny: Yeah, they're pretty smart. Don't you think they're gonna realize it's just a bribe?

Sheldon: No, you'd think, but sometimes brilliant people can be painfully oblivious to social cues.

Penny: Thank you for pointing that out, Sheldon.

Sheldon: Anytime.

(George F. Smoot’s office)

George F. Smoot: "Sheldon Cooper"? Hmm.

(Kip Thorne’s office)

Kip Thorne: "Sheldon Cooper"? Pass.

(Frances H. Arnold’s office)

Frances H. Arnold: "Sheldon Cooper." Aw. Ugh, oatmeal raisin? Ugh.

(Sheldon and Amy’s apartment)

Sheldon: Oh, it's from Saul Perlmutter. He sent me a picture.

Amy: Ooh, let me see.

Sheldon: Oh, he arranged the cookies to spell out "thank you."

Amy: Sheldon, that word isn't "thank."

(Bernadette and Howard’s house: living room)

Bernadette: Hi. I got you a surprise.

Howard: What... Oh. What's the occasion?

Bernadette: I heard you tell Halley that story the other night, and I thought it was so sweet that Stuart and I turned it into a book.

Howard: The Frightened Little Astronaut?

Raj: That looks just like you. Look how tiny and scared you look.

Bernadette: And the best part is, Stuart showed it to a publisher friend of his, and they're interested in it.

Raj: That is so cool.

Howard: Absolutely not.

Bernadette: Why?

Howard: Because I don't want the whole world to know I was the frightened little astronaut!

Raj: Maybe you should've called it The Bitchy Little Astronaut.

(Penny and Leonard’s apartment: kitchen)

Leonard: You want to tell me what's going on?

Sheldon: Is my distress that obvious?

Leonard: Sheldon, please don't take this the wrong way, but when you're quiet even for a second, something's wrong.

Sheldon: Well, it's true. The fact is, I feel really bad for Amy.

Leonard: Well, we all do. But just for fun, why do you?

Sheldon: Well, she didn't do anything wrong, but she's paying for my mistakes.

Leonard: Wow.

Sheldon: What?

Leonard: No... I'm just honestly impressed. When did you start caring about other people's feelings?

Sheldon: Well, I laughed when Amy got a shock from the broken Christmas tree lights, so it was after that.

(Laundry room)

Penny: So none of them are coming to the reception?

Amy: I don't think so.

Penny: Okay, what did he say that was so insulting? Well, he may have suggested there was an inelegance to the quadrupole normalization of Smoot's data.

Amy: Damn.

(Penny and Leonard’s apartment: kitchen)

Sheldon: See, sometimes I wish I could invent a time machine, so I could go back and prevent myself from acting so rashly.

Leonard: Or moving forward, you could think before you speak.

Sheldon: I suppose so.

Leonard: But the time machine thing is probably more likely.

Sheldon: My problem is that I don't always know when I've gone too far.

Leonard: Well, uh, if you like, I could try to help you out. You know, and maybe let you know if you're crossing a line.

Sheldon: Oh, you mean, like, with a code word?

Leonard: Sure. How's "shut up"?

Sheldon: That's perfect. People say it to me all the time, no one will suspect.

(Bernadette and Howard’s house: living room)

Stuart: Hey, got a minute?

Howard: Sure. What's up?

Stuart: Uh, Bernadette said you weren't crazy about the book.

Howard: No.  It's great. I just don't want anyone to ever see it or read it or know it exists.

Stuart: But this could be really good for me, you know? Finally get my artwork published. And-and come on, it's a, it's a cute story.

Howard: Oh, easy for you to say. No one's gonna think you're a coward.

Stuart: Are you kidding? The other day in the comic book store, a balloon popped and I threw up.

Howard: Can't you just take my name off it?

Stuart: No, uh, the only reason the publisher's interested is 'cause a real astronaut wrote it.

Howard: Well, look, what if we made a few changes?

Stuart: Uh, sure, yes. What-what do you have in mind?

Howard: Well, nothing major. But see here on the cover, where it says "frightened little," what if, I don't know, it didn't say that?

Stuart: So, it would just be The Astronaut?

Howard: Yeah, you're right. That doesn't quite pop. What about... The Brave Astronaut? See, that's got some zip to it!

Stuart: Okay.

Howard: And here on this page, where I'm crying. What if, instead, I'm... Punching a meteor into the sun with my bare fists?

Stuart: So you have superpowers?

Howard: I like the way you're thinking.

(Kip Thorne’s office)

Leonard: Professor Thorne?

Kip Thorne: Dr. Hofstadter.

Leonard: Uh, you know my wife, Penny.

Kip Thorne: Sure. Hi.

Penny: Hi.

Leonard: Uh, we wanted to talk to you about Dr. Cooper. Now, before you say no...

Kip Thorne: No.

Leonard: Well, then, after you say no.

Kip Thorne: No.

Penny: Okay, look, Sheldon's a pain in the ass. But Dr. Fowler's really nice. So if you average them out... Math... You got someone who's okay.

Leonard: But more than the person, the Nobel is about the work. You should understand that more than anyone.

Penny: Yes, because of your work on gravitational waves.

Kip Thorne: You know my work?

Penny: I do. But I'm-I'm really hogging this conversation. Leonard?

Leonard: Just give them a chance. Uh, science has a history of difficult people. Look at, uh, Newton, who was a jerk to Leibniz, and Leibniz, who was a jerk to everyone.

Penny: Yeah, you know, and I don't need to tell you that gravitational waves are disturbances in the curvature of space-time. Or that the... Hey, you worked on the movie Interstellar?

(Bernadette and Howard’s house: living room)

Howard: So what do you think?

Bernadette: I think if you were in space without a shirt on, you'd die.

Howard: Oh. No, I am wearing a shirt. It's just skintight, so you can see my pecs.

Bernadette: When did you get pecs?

Howard: Yesterday, when I made Stuart add them.

Bernadette: Howie, what I liked about the other story was that it was real. I mean, nothing in this actually happened to you.

Howard: So, it's a children's book. I mean, cats don't wear hats. And if someone gives you green eggs, it ends with you on the toilet trying to make a deal with God.

Bernadette: But the real story was so sweet. The little astronaut was afraid, but he still went to space, and that's what made him brave.

Howard: But in space, the other astronauts... Made fun of him, and that's a thing he doesn't want to relive.

Bernadette: I get that… I guess it would just take a really brave man to put an embarrassing story like that out into the world, just so it might help some frightened children not feel so alone.

Howard: Wow. That is quite the guilt trip… Are you sure you're not Jewish?

Bernadette: I'm just a wife that is so proud of her husband, and doesn't think that he has anything to be embarrassed about.

Howard: Oh. You're sounding less and less Jewish.

(Caltech: party)

Amy: Hey, we just heard that you're the ones who convinced the Nobel Laureates to come.

Sheldon: Thank you.

Penny: You are welcome.

Leonard: You guys deserve this.

Penny: Yeah, now get out of here, go talk to some smart people.

Leonard: Wait a minute.

Penny: Yeah, sorry. Sometimes I forget you're smart because you're so sexy.

Leonard: I can see that.

Penny: Yeah.


Siebert: Dr. Cooper. Dr. Fowler. I was just telling Professor Arnold how you came up with super-asymmetry at your wedding.

Frances H. Arnold: It's a wonderful story.

Amy: Ha, it really is.

Sheldon: I wouldn't say it was the highlight of the wedding, because I've been told not to for reasons I don't fully understand.

Siebert: Uh, but what he does understand is how the universe works, and that's what's important. Not what comes out of his mouth.


Penny: Uh-oh. I haven't been to a lot of parties like this, but what does a physics rumble look like?

Leonard: Kind of like angry chickens.

Penny: Hmm.

Leonard: Or-or-or-or like, uh, when-when puppets fight.


Greg Pemberton: Dr. Cooper, Dr. Fowler, good to see you.

Amy: What are you doing here?

Greg Pemberton: Professor Smoot invited us. We're Facebook friends.

Kevin Campbell: Smooty!

Amy: Well, this is our reception, so go away.

Sheldon: Actually, Amy, I think we should let them stay. Please, enjoy yourselves. Try some pigs in blankets. And yes, that is the plural.

Greg Pemberton: Great.

Kevin Campbell: Thanks.

Amy: What are you doing?

Sheldon: If they stay, everyone will see that their grasp on super-asymmetry is tenuous at best.

Amy: Oh. That's clever.

Sheldon: Yeah, I don't just know the plurals of things, Amy.

Leonard: Is this gonna be a problem?

Sheldon: Mm? No, no, no. We have a plan. Uh, Dr. Campbell and Pemberton, settle a bet for Dr. Fowler and me? We were just discussing, under what conditions the radiative corrections to super-asymmetry could cause time variation of alpha E.M.?

Amy: I say active galactic nuclei at cosmological distances show a part per million deviation. Dr. Cooper says this has been disproven recently with quasar observations.

Sheldon: What do you think?

Kevin Campbell: I agree with you.

Sheldon: Good answer.

Greg Pemberton: Hey, uh, if we haven't said it before, we just want to say... Thank you.

Kevin Campbell: Yeah. We couldn't have proven super-asymmetry without you.

Sheldon: Wait-wait. You all heard them say it. They didn't do anything.

Leonard: Sheldon. Shut up.

Sheldon: Yeah... Well, that's rude.

Leonard: No. Shut up.

Sheldon: Oh, the code word, thank you.

Greg Pemberton: You know, it's strange. A few months ago, nobody paid any attention to us, and now all of a sudden, we're getting all these accolades.

Kevin Campbell: Yeah, have-have any of you ever felt like maybe you didn't deserve it?

Sheldon: Leonard, there's something I need to say.

Leonard: Shut up.

Sheldon: Okay.

Greg Pemberton: It's crazy. We conclusively proved super-asymmetry, and yet somehow we, we still feel like imposters.

Kevin Campbell: There should be a term for that.

Amy: Oh, for crying out loud, there is a term for that! It's called "imposter syndrome" and you don't have it! Because you can't have it if you are imposters, and you are! We're the ones who discovered super-asymmetry! So if anyone's gonna feel like they have imposter syndrome, it's us, because we're not imposters! They are! You're imposters and you're frauds!

Sheldon: Is that what I would've sounded like?

Leonard: Yeah.

Sheldon: Yikes!

(Bernadette and Howard’s house: nursery)

Howard: Once upon a time, there was a little astronaut who was sitting in a rocket waiting to go to space."

Man: Three... Two... One...

Howard: And while all the other astronauts laughed and joked, he stayed quiet, because he had a secret. He was scared. He had another secret, too. He was only pretending to be scared to trick the alien king… Ha-ha!

Bernadette: Howie.

Howard: Fine. There was no alien… There was a bossy wife, though. We'll get to her later.

J'ai vraiment bien aimé l'histoire de l'astronaute, trop touchant Bernadette et Howard. 

Je n'ai pas compris pour Stuart, il habite toujours chez Bernadette et Howard ? Je croyais qu'il avait déménagé, non ? 

Forcément qu'Amy craque...

stephe  (07.04.2019 à 10:06)

C'est tellement frustrant pour Amy & Sheldon, j'espère que c'est eux qui auront le prix nobel, ce serait bien mérité par rapport aux 2 autres! Eux savent en jouer par contre ! 

j'aime bien quand Leonard aide Sheldon à ne pas craquer et c'est Amy qui craque^^

Bernadette & Howard étaient très mignons^^
