BEST SCIENCE

Since the only real science was Sheldon calling fake blood a “phenolphthalein indicator exposed to a sodium carbonate solution,” let’s just use this space instead for the…

BEST GEEKERY

In order from best to bestest:

No. 3: Alice’s self-penned comic, Alice Unchained, in which she details her night of love-making with a guy sporting the top half of a Chewbacca costume. “Comic-Con?” asked Leonard. “You’d think, but no.” Yeah, this woman totally exists in real life.

No. 2: Alice and Leonard’s meet cute at the comic-book store revolved around issue No. 21 of Nextmen, featuring Hellboy’s first appearance — in an American book in a full-color cameo, so says Wikipedia. But nevermind the details; she had him at, well, at eye contact, really, but his fate was sealed when she said “Hellboy.”

No. 1: This is easy: Leonard as Lion-O, as drawn by DC Comics co-publisher Jim Lee. Click here to see it again, up close.

BEST LINES AND EXCHANGES:

Sheldon: [Reading message written to him in fake blood] “See you in hell Sheldon” — the most frightening thing about that is the missing comma!

Howard: [To Leonard] Did you just pick up a girl in a comic-book store?

Stuart: Because if you did, you get your picture up there on the Wall of Heroes.

Sheldon: Be sure to check the mail.

Leonard: How many times are you going to tell me? What’s with you?

Sheldon: Nothing. It’s not suspicious that I’m fixating. It’s consistent with my personality.

Alice: [While making out with Leonard] So can I trade you my comic for the Hellboy?

Leonard: You can have my car.

Leonard: So, here it is: Is it cheating if a guy has a girlfriend—

Penny: Yeah, probably.

Sheldon: I thought you were leaving the apartment

Leonard: Yeah, me too, I can’t make up my mind.

Sheldon: Are you concerned because the world is filled with big dogs and bullies?

Screeching voice: WHO IS IT?!

Sheldon: It’s me Sheldon, Mrs. Wolowitz.

Howard: That’s not my mom. It’s Bernadette.

Sheldon: Really? That’s very unsettling.

What did you make of “The Good Guy Fluctuation,” fellow Big Bang theorists? Are you relieved Leonard and Priya appear headed for Splitsville?
