The guys compete in a physics bowl after the previous contestants dropped out to form a barbershop quartet.  When Sheldon's showboating becomes too much for them, they kick him off the team.  An upset Sheldon forms his own team to compete against them which includes the third floor janitor, the lunch lady and her son.  The other boys, meanwhile, grab Leslie Winkle as their fourth.

At the bowl, the guys call themselves PMS (Perpetual Motion Squad) and Sheldon's team is AA (Army Ants).  PMS wins by one question when Sheldon is unable to answer the final he won't allow the janitor to state the answer even though he knows it.  Penny then does her own test to see who's the smartest by asking pop culture questions.  Neither boy is able to answer any question.

The Big Bang Theory Season 1 Episode 13 Quotes

Sheldon: Teams are traditionally named after fierce creatures, thus intimidating one's opponent.
Raj: Then we could be the Bengal Tigers.
Sheldon: Poor choice—gram for gram, no animal exceeds the relative fighting strength of the army ant.
Raj: Maybe so, but you can't incinerate a Bengal tiger with a magnifying glass

Wolowitz: Oh, more details about the new Star Trek film. There's going to be a scene depicting Spock's birth.
Raj: I'd be more interested in a scene depicting Spock's conception.
Sheldon: Oh, please. For Vulcans, mating—or if you will, pon farr—it's an extremely private matter.
Leonard: Still, I'd like to know the details. His mother was human; his father was Vulcan. They couldn't just conceive.
Wolowitz: Maybe they had to go to a clinic. Can you imagine Spock's dad in a little room with a copy of Pointy Ears and Shapely Rears?
