The Big Bang Theory: Raj’s 10 Best Quotes

  

The Big Bang Theory has been a leading comedy on TV since it first aired on September 24, 2007. While the show focuses on Sheldon Cooper (Jim Parsons) and Leonard Hofstadter (Johnny Galecki) as the leads, the vast and talented cast has opened the door wide for the show’s writers to add all kinds of humor to every episode. Although for the majority of the first few seasons Raj Koothrappali, portrayed by Kunal Nayyar, couldn’t even talk to women without alcohol, even he has wound up with some of the funniest lines of all. Mostly because fans never know what he is going to say, Raj has had us laughing out loud so many times! Check out 10 of his funniest quotes over the seasons!

Raj: “So, how’s it going with the title to the house?
Howard: “Great, it’s all done. The lawyer tracked down my father and got him to sign it over. I didn’t have to meet him, I didn’t have to talk to him, I don’t even know where he is.”
Raj: “Wow so you’re not curious at all?”
Howard: “Nope.”
Raj: “What if he’s in prison? What if he’s a spy? What if he’s in a Beatles cover band? I’m just saying, if he’s got your nose and haircut, he’d make a killer ringo.”
