Oh, and I thought Amy had some really good lines this episode.

I sure wish Jim Parsons would go back to his old hair cut.

I hope they don't drag this breaking up/getting back so much... get it over with already!?

That doesn't always work out well. Never understood the "molding" or changing him" philosophy? They don't do it to their female counterparts? I just hope they resolve the relationship issue quickly and not drag it out. Can someone please tell the writers that the "Coffee Bean" is on Lake Ave not "Lake st"!

Of course we are talking about fictional characters and even if we weren't it would be next to impossible to know their true desires and motives... however my take is more in the line of letting him grow into what he can become (hoping he turns into what she is looking for) versus attempting to change him. By opening his eyes to the rest of the world... I have seen little evidence of her attempting to turn him into her dream boyfriend/husband. Almost to the point some pushing might do him well.

I'm hoping this is leading up to some serious Wolowitz payback aka like the last 2 and a Half Men ended with Waldon giving Zoey the dog.

Maybe having her best friend married has her thinking about her future.

Agreed, this is going to be a very good season and with 2+1/2 a must-see TV Thursday. biggrin.gif

OK. Maybe nobody else watched, or nobody else was bothered by this. But, these guys being the geeks they all are, Howard would be being treated like a god.

None of them would be ignoring him. They would be falling all over him. The writers blew this, badly.
post #1749 of 2538
Raising Hope is funnier.
post #1750 of 2538
I think they all agreed and aware that Howard was coming home and he'll be having his honeymoon and all so they didn't bother him and they were preparing for the party the next day..

Too bad Bernie had that huge cold and there wasn't anything Howard could do...

At least that lady on the diner acknowledged that Howard was an astronaut and all...

I scratched my head when Howie Mandel appeared.. I never thought I see him on a CBS show.. LOL

That was the setup for the episode... but if you want justification if it was someone they didn't know it might be true. With it being Howard... he's still Howard.

I thought the episode was hilarious, especially the line where Raj said he and the comic book guy were "filling each others holes".

This was freaking soooo funny. Wow! Haven't laughed that hard at a show in a long time. The pictionary was perfect, way to funny. Raj and Stewart in their apartment, I almost spit out my water at the lines they had. Fastest 30 minute show I have watched in a long time, just flew by. Bernadette was perfect too. Just hitting all cylnders in this episode.
post #1754 of 2538
Was very weird when Penny kissed Sheldon's nose, then all his face and then Amy came to help kissing him more.. I was rolling on the floor that time (maybe Leonard could join them also LOL)..
post #1755 of 2538
Immensely funny episode -- in large part because nearly all of the humor was based on who the characters are and have been to each other. So it wasn't situational humor, it was character humor, which tends to reward fans and escape newcomers. A sitcom needs a certain amount of courage, or at least confidence, to do that.
post #1756 of 2538
The episode was a hoot. 30 minutes, what 30 minutes, it was only 20 min and 53 sec long.

A definite laugh a minute.
post #1757 of 2538
Well, it's been nearly the entire season, but Alex has finally started laying it on thick for Leonard. She's cute wink.gif

Excellent episode, again. Loved the end with Sheldon pulling one over on Raj and Howard, that was sooo freaking funny. Only thing I don't like is they showed us what he was doing in the room. Could of been a plot point for a few more shows. But overall, excellent. Loved Raj and Howard trying to figure out the 43 reference. Their white board had 43 = 42 + 1. Too funny.

The writers are on their game this season.
post #1760 of 2538
Shed several tears... some 'cause of laughter, some others when Penny finally said the L word to Leonard...
post #1761 of 2538
Nice to see an episode focused more on the core original characters interacting with each other. But I agree, Alex is interesting, and I'm sure it's no accident that her crush on Leonard and Penny's little slip-of-the-tongue were part of the same episode.

Agreed. I saw somewhere a complaint that BBT had become nothing but yet another sitcom about relationships the last couple years. I think they saw that too, and this season went back to more of Sheldon's antics. Plus a little less relationship stuff.

Call me crazy but I'd rather Leonard end up with Alex.

I've never seen the chemistry between them anyway. I would like to of seen Leonard end up with that hot comic book girl he hooked up with when he was dating Raj's sister.

But it's the crazy ones that men end up with usually and we all know why!

Reminds me of another CBS sitcom.

As long as she stays above the yellow line on the "Hot-Crazy" scale, its all good. And she's pretty hot IMO.

That episode was fantastic. What a great season. Amy and Sheldon, best momments between then ever. Just perfect. Howard and his father in-law was classic Howard and then when they were talking about needing someone that knew how to fish and do manly stuff, I immediately said out loud, Penny. Just really a great episode.

I generally like all the episodes but you're right, this one was really hilarious. A lot of funny bits but I actually fell off the bed when Penny was showing Howard how to gut a fish, he pulls the insides out and Penny screams something like "ooh, look, it's a female, you can see the eggs" and they all throw up. I know exactly how they felt.

Priceless!
