t in a circle around a game of Jenga they are playing.)
Howard: Sheldon, if you were a robot and I knew and you didn't
Sheldon: That depends. When I learn that I'm a robot
Howard: Maybe, although the history of science-fiction is not on your side.
Sheldon: Uh, let me ask you this. When I learn that I'm a robot, would I be bound by Asimov's Three Laws of Robotics?
Rajesh: (eyeing Sheldon suspiciously) You might be bound by them right now.
Howard: That's true. Have you ever harmed a human being or through inaction allowed a human being to come to harm?
Sheldon: Of course not.
Howard: Have you ever harmed yourself or allowed yourself to be harmed except in cases where a human being would have been endangered?
Sheldon: Well, no.
Howard: (to Rajesh) I smell robot.

Rajesh: Also, Sheldon may be a robot
