Leonard失恋33天之round 6: 约会前综合症


Leonard: How do I look?

Sheldon: Could you be more specific?

Leonard: Can you tell I’m perspiring a little?

Sheldon: No. The dark crescent shaped patterns under your arms conceal it nicely. What time is your date?

Leonard: 6:30

Sheldon: Perfect. That gives you two hours and 15 minutes for that dense molecular cloud of aromas to dissipate.

Leonard: Is it too much?

Sheldon: Not if you’re a rugby team.

Leonard: By the way, if it should ever come up, you didn’t join us because you stuffed yourself with a chicken carbonara sub at Quiznos.

Sheldon: Why would I join you?

Leonard: No reason. Oh, you know what, maybe this isn’t such a good idea.

Sheldon: Oh, no, well, now there’s always the possibility that alcohol and poor judgment on her part might lead to a nice romantic evening.

Leonard: You’re right. Alcohol, poor judgment—it could go well.

Sheldon: Of course there is the other possibility that this date kicks off a rather unpleasant six months of the two of you passing awkwardly in the hall, until one of you breaks down and moves to another zip code.

Leonard: You could’ve stopped at it could go well.

Sheldon: If I could’ve, I would’ve.
