Sheldon is offered a promotion to Junior Professor on The Big Bang Theory Season 8 Episode 2 in order to honor his request to give up String Theory to study Dark Matter.

Sheldon's not happy about the promotion because it means he'll have to teach graduate students. When no one signs up for his class, Howard offers to take it. Instead of being thankful, Sheldon uses it as another opportunity to demean Howard's intelligence. In response, Howard decides to be a bad student.

Meanwhile, the girls are getting catty. Amy uses the discord between Penny and Bernadette to fulfill her desire to be a "cool" kid. She plays the two friends against each other.

The Big Bang Theory Season 8 Episode 2 Quotes

Sheldon: So your solution is to promote me and pay me more money so tha tI can impart my knowledge to the next generation of scientists?
Mrs. Davis: Yes.
Sheldon: You people are sick.

Sheldon: I recently read that during World War Two, Joseph Stalin had a research program to create supersoldiers by having women impregnated by gorillas.
Howard: What a sick use of science.
Raj: Hey, as long as the baby's healthy.
Amy: I wonder if Stalin considered any other animals.
Leonard: Hippos are the deadliest creature. A half-human, half-hippo soldier would be pretty badass.
Howard: Yes, but when they're hungry-hungry, you can stop them with marbles.
Sheldon: Yeah, the correct animal for interspecies supersolider is koala. You would wind up with an army so cute it couldn't be attacked.
