The Big Bang Theory and Radiohead

Ok, this is the last time this week I’m going to mention The Big Bang Theory. Promise!

Penny: [surprised that Sheldon actually might actually help her with her flower beret business] …and you know about all this?
Sheldon: Penny, I am a physicist. I have a working knowledge of the entire Universe and everything it contains!
Penny: [sarcastic] Who’s Radiohead?
Sheldon: [suddenly his eye begins twitching, because he’s frustrated he doesn’t know the answer] I have a working knowledge of the important things in the Universe.

[Later] Sheldon proposed to build an assembly line in order to produce the flower berets faster.

Penny: How are we supposed to set up machines and conveyer belts in my apartment?
Sheldon: You’re thinking of the moving assembly line… An understandable but not excusable mistake. The moving assembly line… that was introduced by Henry Ford in 1908. That innovation is what made possible our modern consumer culture by enabling a low cost for manufactured goods. I guess that isn’t one of the topics discussed on your radiohead!

Let me say that again in case you’ve missed it: I GUESS THAT ISN’T ONE OF THE TOPICS DISCUSSED ON YOUR RADIOHEAD. Hilarious!
