  • Ok, well thank you for that, but I got you and Leonard a few silly neighbor gifts, so

  • I'll just put them under my tree.

  • Wait! You bought me a present? Uh huh. But why would you do such a thing? I don't know,

  • because it's Christmas? No, Penny! I know you think you're being generous, but the foundation

  • of gift giving is reciprocity. You haven't given me a gift, you've given me an obligation.

  • Don't feel bad, Penny, it's a classic rookie mistake. My first Hannukah with Sheldon, he

  • yelled at me for 8 nights.

  • Honey, it's ok, you don't have to get me anything in return. Of course I do! The essence of

  • the custom is that I now have to go out and purchase for you a gift of commensurate value

  • and representing the same perceived level of friendship as that represented by the gift

  • you've given me. That's no wonder that suicide rates skyrocket this time of year.

  • Ok, forget it. I'm not giving you a present. No, it's too late! I see that elf sticker

  • says "To Sheldon". The die has been cast. The moving finger has writeHannibal has crossed

  • the Alps.

  • I know, it's funny when it's not happening to us.

  • Sheldon, I am very very sorry. No, no, I brought this on myself by being such an endearing

  • and important part of your life. I'm going to need a ride to the mall.

  • It's happening to us.

Ok, well thank you for that, but I got you and Leonard a few silly neighbor gifts, so
