Best Penny (Hofstadter) Quotes

Good morning everybody, hope you’re all well! I celebrated my birthday this Sunday just gone, I got some lovely presents from my family that I was not expecting to get and also had a facetime with my sister and nephew which made the day extra special…as another little treat we’re going to be visiting them this weekend which we’re looking forward to, especially before my mum’s pre-op appointment next week, as there are bound to be a lot of laughs watching Isaac doing his thing and hearing all the stories on what has happened this week.

Anyway on with today’s post and the sixth and penultimate edition of The Big Bang Theory; Best Character Quotes, featuring Penny…With a show consisting primarily of male protagonists, Penny stood out from the beginning. It wasn’t until the show was a few seasons in that another female character was added into the main cast, making Penny the female character with the most screen time. As The Big Bang Theory progressed and the viewers got to grow with the characters, Penny’s transformation became one of the best on the show. Watching her go from the girl next door to the one everyone goes to for advice throughout the course of the show’s 12 seasons. While some of the show’s biggest catchphrases often come from Sheldon, Penny is another character with some of the most memorable lines. Her thinly veiled insults are often covered by calling that person “Sweetie.” Sometimes she makes quips about the guys right to their faces because they genuinely have no idea what she’s talking about since they are so swept up in their own worlds. Nevertheless, Penny’s lines should not be forgotten.
