triangle Script

Okay We're all set.
Let her rip.
Check it out. It's just corn starch and water.
They make up a non-Newtonian fluid, which is liquid, but solid under the percussive action of the speaker.
That's what makes it get all funky.
Yeah. Okay. Uh, listen, I need to talk to Sheldon.
No, that's what she said … Sheldon.
Okay, I bought the game, and I've been exploring the Island of Tortage. But I can't figure out how to get past the guard captain.
Do you have the enchanted sword?
No, no, I have a bronze dagger.
You can't slay the guard captain with a bronze dagger. My lord, it's like the car key in your apartment door all over again.
All right, how do I get the sword?
Well, have you been to the temple of Mitra?
Is that the place on the hill with the weird priest in front of it?
No, no, no, it's… Oh, for god's sakes, gimme.
Thank you. I really appreciate this.
You're gonna have to learn to do these things for yourself, Penny.
Don't patronize me! Just get the sword!
What the frack?
Beats me. They were playing all last night, too.
It's like some kind of weird comic book crossover.
Like if Hulk were dating Peppermint Patty.
I always thought Peppermint Patty was a lesbian.
No, that's Marcie. Peppermint Patty's just athletic.
There you go … one enchanted sword.
All right, gimme, gimme, gimme. I want to kill the guard captain.
That girl needs to get a life.

No, Fritz, I need you on my flank. No, I don't know German. Flankenzei, flankenzei.
Hey, Penny.
Yeah, I see that.
Shouldn't you be at work?
I don't work on Mondays.
It's Thursday.
Listen, Penny.
Queen Penelope, AFK. What?
Here's the thing. Sometimes people, good people, they start playing these games. And they find themselves, through no fault of their own, you know, kind of addicted.
Yeah, get to the point. I'm about to level up here.
It's just if a person doesn't have a sense of achievement in their real life, It's easy to lose themselves in a virtual world where they can get a false sense of accomplishment.
Yeah, jabber, jabber, jabber. Okay, boys, Queen Penelope’s back online.
Penny, you've got Cheetos in your hair.
Oh. Thanks.
Hey, Penny, it's me again, Leonard.
Leonard, I said not now.
I know. I'm just a little concerned about you.
I said not now!
Okay, maybe later.

Hello, fair Penny.
Who are you? It is I, sir Howard of Wolowitz.
Can I interest you in an afternoon of spirited questing followed by a flagon of ale at yon virtual tavern?
Yeah, sure, why not? Oh, my god, I need help.
