SHELDON: Excuse me. You're misusing the word "ho." It's an interjection used to call attention to a destination,not an object,as in,uh,"Land,ho!" Or,uh,"Westward,ho!"
PENNY: Hey,guys. Whatcha doin'? Going out to discover electricity?
SHELDON: If you're referring to the work of Benjamin Franklin, he did not "discover electricity," he merely used a kite to determine that lightning "consists" of electricity. He also invented the Franklin stove, bifocals and the flexible urinary catheter. Kites,ho.
LEONARD: We're heading out for some kite fighting.
PENNY: "Kite fighting"?
LEONARD: Oh,yeah. It's an extremely competitive,cut-throat sport.
SHELDON: Well,actually,the risk of throat cutting is very low. On the other hand,severe string burn is a real and ever-present danger.
LEONARD: You want to come watch?
PENNY: Oh,gee.Sounds amazing. But,um,I've got some friends coming over. Not a big thing-- we're just gonna watch the Nebraska game.
LEONARD: Oh. Football,sure.
HOWARD: Good guess.
PENNY: I would've invited you,but I know you're not a football fan.
LEONARD: No,no,I'm not,so... great. You've got plans doing something you like,I've got plans doing something I like,so it's good.
PENNY: Well,maybe we'll hang out later--you know,after everybody's gone.
PENNY: See ya.
LEONARD: Well,this sucks.
SHELDON: I'm sorry,I got bored and drifted off. Where exactly in the interaction did the sucking lie?
RAJ:Leonard just realized that Penny's been hiding him from her friends because he's a tiny,little man who flies kites.
SHELDON: Oh,that certainly would suck.
The lights-out event is part of Earth Hour, an effort to call attention to climate change.
