"He has a unique and brilliant mind! Do you know what that does to me?!"

"Two Rationals married to each other do not have this problem. Two Rationals are likely to be fascinated by each other's research and discoveries, by their tools and technologies, and when they find the time to come together they have intense discussions, logical, esoteric, critical and competitive."
— David Kiersey, Please Understand Me II
"For H wasn't like that at all. Her mind was lithe and quick and muscular as a leopard. Passion, tenderness, and pain were all equally unable to disarm it. It scented the first whiff of cant or slush; then sprang, and knocked you over before you knew what was happening. How many bubbles of mine she pricked! I soon learned not to talk rot to her unless I did it for sheer pleasure-and there's another red hot jab- of being exposed and laughed at. I was never less silly then as H's lover."
— C. S. Lewis describing Joy in A Grief Observed.
Castle: Did you just use the word veritable?
Becket: You should hear me use the word fallacious.
"Some rationals seem so cold and logical that it is hard to imagine them doing anything so frivolous as falling in love...getting a rational to open up and show their tender side can be a great challenge, one many women find intriguing."

"Look at you! The sight of you enveloped in that labcoat... To the very marrow it thrills me!"

"When I say everyone
I mean everyone knows
It's just the way I roll
With my heart on my sleeve, exposed
I like guys who like Harry Potter
To me, they couldn't get any hotter
I'm dying for a kiss...
And it's painfully obvious"
— Lauren Fairweather, "Painfully Obvious"
"18: Lily thinks she can't sing, but he likes to hear her sing in the shower. She usually switches between Elton John's greatest hits and selections from The Little Mermaid, but on the day Marshall catches her singing an obscure Chumbawumba song while she washes her hair, he decides to start looking for an engagement ring. He can't let a girl like that get away."
(617): she hacked my macbook and downloaded an illegal version of the original pokemon red, completely nude in my computer chair. there were several levels of hornyness existing all at once
(315): She recited Pi throughout ever orgasm she had....she said it was a game she likes to play...how far she gets is how she judges her lovers...I am oddly turned on by this...
(323): Seriously. I'm like, "Wait, we are actually talking about physics in the middle of sex and its ACTUALLY erotic because you're so fucking intelligent I'm turned on?"
Leonard: You know, there’s a foundational idea in string theory that the whole universe may be a hologram.
Penny: What do you mean?
(Leonard flicks a switch. The hologram changes to a view of the planet Earth.)
Penny: (in awe) Oh! Wow!
Leonard: Well, the holographic principle suggests that what we all experience every day in three dimensions may really… [changes view to solar system] …just be information… [changes view to the galaxy] …on a surface located at the farthest reaches of our cosmos. [spins the hologram of the galaxy] So it’s possible that our lives are really just acting out a painting on the largest canvas in the universe.
