With the perennial winning team not participating this year, Leonard, Howard and Raj feel that their foursome are the sure winners of this year's edition of the university's physics bowl. They have to talk a reluctant Sheldon into entering with them, which they do manage to do. They regret doing so after Sheldon takes control of everything and as such has taken any fun out of the process. After the threesome kick Sheldon off their team, Sheldon vows revenge by forming his own team. Despite Leonard's discomfort with the idea, they decide to ask Leslie Winkle to be Sheldon's replacement, she who declines until she learns that they are planning on destroying Sheldon in the process. During their match, Sheldon, who believes he is basically fielding a one man team (his teammates are a janitor, the lunch floor monitor and her son), has to decide what is the most important goal.
Did You Know?
Sheldon (Jim Parsons
)'s Spanish is so bad that he could not differentiate the Spanish words hijo and carnicero to ascertain if his third teammate was the son or butcher of his second. See more
While practicing for the competition, Sheldon says that by Leonard's logic he should answer all the anthropology questions because he is a mammal. He should have said it would be because he is a man. All but one mammal, humans, do not fall under the umbrella of anthropology. See more

Yeah, Leslie Winkle, the answer to the question, 'Who made Sheldon Cooper cry like a little girl?'
Yes, well, I'm polymerized tree sap and you're an inorganic adhesive so whatever verbal projectile you launch in my direction is reflected off of me and returns on its original trajectory and adheres to you.
[with much sarcasm
In the opening scroll of the time line when it gets to 91,000 there is a mistake the dates read 93,000BC 92,000BC 91,0009C 90,000BC for some reason 91,000 is a 9c not a BC. See more
