Which Sheldon Cooper Quote Best Sums You Up as an Engineer?

It ought to be no surprise that the increasingly hilarious You Know You're an Engineer When... conversation has taken a hairpin turn toward Sheldonville, and I've been wondering how Dr. Cooper has influenced you as an engineer.


Which of his deadpan one liners rang particularly true for you, and which of his irritating idiosyncrasies made your friends and family cast a furtive glance in your direction when he said them?


I want to know which Sheldon Cooper quotes sum you up as an engineer, and I want you to be honest. Well, honest-ish, anyway. Okay, not honest at all -- just use this as flimsy pretext for jabbing each other in the engineering ribs.
