The Big Bang Theory Quiz: Who Said It - Mary Cooper Or Beverly Hofstadter?

They're more similar than you might think...

The Big Bang Theory

Of all the recurring characters throughout 12 seasons of The Big Bang Theory, it's when we got to see both Sheldon's and Leonard's mothers in action that fans were given a real treat. On the one hand, you had Mary Cooper - the family-oriented and religious woman from Texas (with an ever-so-slightly racist attitude), contrasted greatly with the blunt sharpness and practical scientific force of Beverly Hofstadter. Especially when these two got together on occasion, you knew there would be fireworks.

Except, they're not actually all that different. Both do have an appreciation and unconditional love for their respective sons deep down, even if they showed it in very different ways. But despite their differing beliefs, they actually share a number of similarities in their practical approaches to life, especially when you consider some of their hilarious dialogue.

So with that in mind, are you able to decipher which of these famous mothers said what during their time on the show? It's more difficult than you might think - if you can get all of these right, you've clearly been doing some serious binge-watching recently...
