In the season opener of Big Bang Theory we find Sheldon staying over at Howard’s because he cannot keep a secret Penny told him from Leonard. Once settled in bed Sheldon begins to ramble about Catwoman due to the Halle Berry Poster over Howard’s bed.
Here’s their conversation. After this I will give my list of favorite Catwomen.
Sheldon: That poster of Halle Berry is a little unnerving.
Howard: So don’t look at it.
Sheldon: She’s like my fourth favorite Catwoman.
Howard: No Kidding.
Sheldon: Yeah, Julie Newmar, Michelle Pfeiffer, Eartha Kitt and then her.
Howard: What about Lee Meriweather?
Sheldon: Oh, I forgot about Lee Meriweather.
Howard: Well I’m glad that is settled.
Sheldon: That makes Halle Berry my fifth favorite Catwoman. It’s Julie Newmar, Michelle Pfeiffer, Eartha Kitt, Lee Meriweather”
Howard: Please I’m begging you go to sleep.
Sheldon: I’m trying. I’m counting Catwomen.
Sheldon: She did make a fine mutant in the X-Men movies, though.
Howard: Oh for God sake.
Sheldon: She’s not my favorite of the X-Men though. In order that would be wolverine, Cyclops — wait I forgot Professor X. Professor X, Wolverine, Cyclops, Iceman, then Storm, Angel, the Beast — No wait Nightcrawler. Professor X, Nightcrawler, Wolverine, Cyclos, Iceman, then Storm, Angel, the Beast.
I have to disagree with Sheldon a little on the order of Catwomen.
My favorite Catwoman is Michelle Pfeiffer, then Julie Newmar, Eartha Kitt, Halle Berry, Lee Meriweather. (And we’ll throw Adrienne Barbeau in there as well. She played Catwoman in Batman the Animated Series).
