Quote from Dr. Linkletter

Dr. John Sturgis: Actually, Sheldon, I do have some news. I reached out to a colleague who's doing a summer research program at the University of Heidelberg, and I think I can get you in.
Sheldon: Heidelberg, Germany?
Dr. Linkletter: A summer program 5,000 miles away. Only a fool would say no to that.
Sheldon: Well, that would certainly help my grad school applications.
Dr. John Sturgis: Yes, and they're doing exciting work on superstrings.
Sheldon: Fantastisch. That's German for "fantastic."
Dr. Linkletter: Ich helfe dir beim packen. That's German for "I'll help you pack."

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: [on the phone] Yes, is this the Columbia summer science honors program? Excellent. My name is Sheldon Cooper, perhaps you've heard of me. Well, now you have. Anyways, it's recently come to my attention that you could be an important step in my career advancement. So, good news, I'm available. Yes, I understand I've missed the deadline, but I'm sure you can make an exception. [emotional] But I'm Sheldon Cooper.

Quote from Sheldon

Sheldon: And apparently Doctors Linkletter and Sturgis were aware that I already should have been focusing on my applications.
Mary: And they didn't say anything to you?
Sheldon: Well, they did, but I don't come off well in that story.

Quote from George Sr.

Mary: I'm waitin'.
George Sr.: For what?
Mary: The "I told you so." 'Cause I coddled Sheldon and apparently ruined his life.
George Sr.: Oh. I'm not gonna say that. I mean, you did coddle him and I did tell ya... All right, I told you so.
Mary: Thanks for not sayin' it.

Quote from Sheldon

Mary: Shelly, you want some mashed potatoes?
Sheldon: See, there you go again, bringing the mashed potatoes to me when I should be going to the mashed potatoes.
Mary: Fine.
George Sr.: What's goin' on?
Sheldon: Years of coddling have made me complacent, and now it may cost me my chance to get into grad school at Caltech.
George Sr.: I've been sayin' that since you were born.
Sheldon: And yet you did nothing to stop her?
