Great Sheldon Cooper Quotes Volume One (The Big Bang Theory)

I love The Big Bang Theory, and Sheldon Cooper (played by Jim Parsons) delivers some of my favorite lines. He’s brilliant and tactless, and that can be a hilarious combination. Here are five great Sheldon Cooper quotes, in the first of what will be a series of posts highlighting his best quips. Enjoy!

1. “Last night I was strong armed into an evening of harp music and spooning with an emotional Amy Farrah Fowler, this on a night that I had originally designated for solving the space time geometry in higher spin gravity and building my lego death star … and why? Because your gal pals Penny and Bernadette went out shopping for some wedding nonsense without Amy, an action they took with no thought or regard as to how it would affect me, the future of string theory, or my lego fun time!”

2. “I have sheep, I need wood. Who has wood for my sheep? C’mon … I just want wood. Why are you making it so hard?”

3. “Scissors cuts paper, paper covers rock, rock crushes lizard, lizard poisons Spock, Spock smashes scissors, scissors decapitates lizard, lizard eats paper, paper disproves Spock, Spock vaporizes rock, and as it always has, rock crushes scissors.”

4. “Under normal circumstances I’d say I told you so. But, as I have told so with such vehemence and frequency already the phrase has lost all meaning. Therefore, I will be replacing it with the phrase, I have informed you thusly.”

5. “For the record, I do have genitals. They’re functional and aesthetically pleasing.”

An off-beat sense of humor is what you need to pull a solid Bazinga! Some have to plan for it and for some it comes naturally. Sheldon, for instance, we imagine has a Google spreadsheet which tracks upcoming Bazingas and their potentially appropriate usage, as well as past Bazingas and their subsequent audience reactions. Oh, sure, it looks like it comes naturally to him, but really he has to work at it. That’s how it is with all great art. Distressed superhero-style Bazinga! printed on a black, 100% cotton t-shirt.
