There’s a funny scene in Big Bang Theory’s Episode 15 (Season 2). Leonard’s mother Dr Beverley Hofstadter is visiting him at his lab, and she’s not impressed by his replication work.
Beverley: Leonard, it’s one o’clock, weren’t you going to show me your laboratory at one o’clock?
Leonard: There’s no hurry, Mother, tell them more about their secret love for each other.
Beverley: But it’s one o’clock, you were going to show me your laboratory at one o’clock.
Sheldon: Her reasoning is unassailable. It is one o’clock.
Beverley: So, no original research?
Beverley: Well, what’s the point of my seeing it? I could just read the paper the Italians wrote.
Here’s the video
