With the perennial winning team not participating this year, Leonard, Howard and Raj feel that their foursome are the sure winners of this year's edition of the university's physics bowl. They have to talk a reluctant Sheldon into entering with them, which they do manage to do. They regret doing so after Sheldon takes control of everything and as such has taken any fun out of the process. After the threesome kick Sheldon off their team, Sheldon vows revenge by forming his own team. Despite Leonard's discomfort with the idea, they decide to ask Leslie Winkle to be Sheldon's replacement, she who declines until she learns that they are planning on destroying Sheldon in the process. During their match, Sheldon, who believes he is basically fielding a one man team (his teammates are a janitor, the lunch floor monitor and her son), has to decide what is the most important goal.
Did You Know?
Seasoned theoretical physicists like Sheldon and Leslie Winkle, and maybe even Leonard should not have been bewildered by the final question, which is a basic Feynman diagram with a known answer, hence the plausibility that the Russian janitor/scientist knew the answer from the top of his head.

[discussing their team name for the Physics Bowl
Teams are traditionally named after fierce creatures, thus intimidating one's opponent.
Then we could be the "Bengal Tigers."
Poor choice. Gram for gram, no animal exceeds the relative fighting strength of the army ant.
Maybe so. But you can't incinerate a Bengal tiger with a magnifying glass.
In the opening scroll of the time line when it gets to 91,000 there is a mistake the dates read 93,000BC 92,000BC 91,0009C 90,000BC for some reason 91,000 is a 9c not a BC. See more
