Melissa Rauch and Winston Beigel
[on receiving scripts for The Big Bang Theory (2007)'s fifth season] I was waiting on my doorstep for the first script to arrive, like it was Christmas morning! Not that I celebrate, or anything - but if this little Jewish girl knew what Christmas felt like, I'm sure it would be very close.
