The Big Bang Theory Season 04 Episode 21

Priya: My point is, Sheldon, the legal principle is ambiguity in a contract benefits the party that did not draft it, in this case, Leonard.
Sheldon: But…
Priya: There’s no buts, Sheldon, that’s how the law works.
Leonard: Schooled!

What if Leonard uses "Educated!", will there be much difference?

    To school someone = to educate someone.

    In "Leonard: Schooled!", schooled is an expletive and informal use and means "You have been taught a lesson." (Usually said triumphantly.)
