"I told you, Leonard,we should have stopped at the Pottery Barn before we went to the Cheesecake factory, but you didn't! Under normal circumstances I'd say I told you so. But, as I have told you so with such vehemence and frequency already the phrase has lost all meaning. Therefore, I will be replacing it with the phrase, I have informed you thusly." Sheldon said.
Leonard gave Sheldon the evil eye and went into the apartment with Howard and Raj. Sheldon was desperate to go into his apartment to watch the new Star Trek premiere on TV, which was about to start any minute now, but the stair was blocked with a guy and a girl and a gazillion paper boxes and pieces of furniture.
"Leonard, if we had just done as I had said, we would have been in the apartment before they got here! Oh, I have so informed you thusly!" Sheldon exclaimed.
"Oh, look at that beauty." Howard whispered. Raj's eyes grew huge, and he nodded vigorously.
The guy was carrying a sofa up the stairs but the girl, on the other hand, was struggling with a single duffel bag.
"Uh, hello, let me give you some help, there." Howard said, stepping out and taking the duffle bag from the girl. He reached out a hand. "Howard Wolowitz, Master's degree from MIT, head designer of the satellite orbiting Neptune."
"Head designer? Neptune?" Leonard said, doubtingly.
"Just stay quiet." Howard hissed.
The girl reached out and took Howard's hand. "Mimi Edwards. Ph. D in Algebra and Number Theory from Harvard." She shook it.
"Ooh, Howard, even the new girl in our apartment has a doctor's." Sheldon sniggered. "Still. It's no reason to delay our arrival to the apartment a second later." However, contrary to his words, he was quite impressed by the new girl in their apartment – he knew that mathematics was the basis of all of his work. He remembered the time Stephen Hawking pointed out an algebraic mistake on his paper on the Higgs Boson Particle, and how he had fainted.
Just then, there was a large crashing sound, followed by grunting.
"Brandon!" Mimi called up the stairs.
"Ugh… Mimi, that sofa is damn heavy!" Brandon said.
Mimi went up the stairs for Brandon, and the four were left by themselves.
"Dude, do you think they are going out?" Raj said.
"Now that she's met Howard Wolowitz, I don't think so." Howard said.
'Hogwash. Howard only had a master's degree,' Sheldon thought. 'Besides, she was too evolved to go along with someone like Brandon, nor any of his friends, for that matter. No, she was meant for someone more superior… like himself.'
Sheldon sighed and said, "Well, that's that. Now, let's move along, everyone. Star Trek awaits."
