I love all the double entendres:

"Instead of saying I was going to devirginize you, I should have said I was going to rock your world on my couch"

"I'm hoping his tendency for repetitiveness will pay off in the future".

"If you take me on the table, I'll scream".

LOL

Amys' revenge last time was ruining Indy. If Sheldon Keeps it up, who knows what's next?

The Indy thing was not revenge. That was the first unintentional shot that caused Sheldon to try and ruin one of Amy's favorite childhood memories. In this episode, Sheldon tried to force Amy to not take the job, embarrassed her in front of her colleagues and then called her crazy without any retribution other than Amy refusing to drive him home. It would be nice to see Amy decide that Sheldon really isn't the only option for her and strike up a relationship with another co-worker. And the hilarity ensues.

OK episode, Howard was the best part. Not a laugh out loud episode but still great chemistry on this show. Love how Sheldon has no real filters and just says it how it is without realizing the impact or why he shouldn't.

You know... all this talk of MacGuffins... has there been a TV show (or movie) that ever just smacked us in the face and had a character whose name was MacGuffin?

That would be funny.

Meanwhile...as to Sheldon and the sex innuendos... it seems inevitable that someone will point out to him that it wouldn't be logical for him NOT to procreate... playing to his unwavering sense of logic and natural/physical laws seems to be the easiest path.

Nah, Sheldon wouldn't want to dilute his perfect DNA by mixing it with a female's. He would want a clone or nothing!

Only if cloning could be invented in his lifetime. He wants, for example, his brain to be implanted into a robot/cyborg body... but he recognizes that he probably is not going to live long enough for that to become a reality... so he isn't going to want his genius to stop at his death... eventually, Sheldon will be forced to consider human reproduction as a way of preserving his genius for generations to come. Sheldon will not let his distaste for human physical contact to overwhelm his desire to continue his genius into the future.

The only way that The Ark is a MacGuffin is if you are using the term, in an incredibly broad way, as shorthand for "any object or item that is the focus of the plot, and which is used to bring the characters together." Not every plot driver is a MacGuffin.

But, what the hell.

That's just, like, my opinion, man.
Clearly, it's Indy's hat. You're both wrong. tongue.gif

I keep waiting for logic and Sheldon to occur at the same time....still waiting. If he was faced with actual logic, it'd eat him for dinner.

Ah, but cloning doesn't require a living person. And reproduction doesn't require physical contact. (with another person)

Sheldon would want to see his clone, otherwise how will he "know" his genius carries on?

And.... shhh... on that last part. Amy wouldn't want Sheldon to know that!
post #2170 of 2539
Well, then he'd have to start now. Intelligence can't be demonstrated at birth.
post #2171 of 2539
OMG they pulled a good one at the end of this episode tonight. Had me all the way. Eyebrows up and mouth open in shock thinking that was really about to happen. Great stuff.
post #2172 of 2539
I knew something was up. It was still funny.
post #2173 of 2539
I thought they were going to get interrupted by somebody, but no, it was a daydream...

Cute song, some stuff went so fast, anyone has the lyrics?
post #2174 of 2539
If this episode isn't nominated for an Emmy.... one of the best of the series, IMO.
post #2175 of 2539
I kept thinking that they were going to end the episode in drama with Bernadette collapsing from her exposure to the raccoon virus right after the song ended. As a matter of fact, when she mentioned that she was shaking, I thought that was the moment. Then the next couple of episodes would be about her recovery. That would have been Emmy worthy. Give the actors the opportunity to show more of their talent besides their comedic abilities.

One of the best episodes of the series, top 5 easily. That song was phenominal and actually a liltte touching too. Just perfect all around. Sheldon's fame and then realization it was a blunder but now he is still famous is priceless.
post #2177 of 2539
I'm just glad they made the characters seem intelligent for the first time in many, many episodes. Well, all but Raj.
post #2178 of 2539
I think they should give Penny some more Commercial jobs like the Preparation H gig she had. Nothing big time, just small stuff to make ends meet. Then they can show her in her element and give her something to do besides mooch food and internet or be in her ugly Cheesecake Factory uniform or act dumb. Wouldn't it be a hoot if she got a Booth Babe job at a Comic Convention? That would be a Win/Win for everybody!

SOOOOOOOOO glad they didn't do that. Nothing says that a sit-com has run its course like stunt episodes like that. Or 'very special' episodes about cancer, pregnancy, a death in the family, etc. Those are the worst. We tune in to comedies for laughs...not to watch the actors stretch their chops in special dramatic episodes.

Sounds like you're describing the last season(s) on HIMYM- lets see they had a death in the family, a pregnancy, and now a season long wedding. And I agree with you about a series running it's course (HIMYM... hint... hint).
Luckily, BBT still has plenty left in the tank though!

They kept up pretty well in the closed captions. Even the Klingon phrase. biggrin.gif

If I didn’t have you, life would be blue
I’d be Doctor Who without the TARDIS
A candle without a wick, a Watson without a Crick
I’d be one of my outfits without a dick-ey

I’d be cheese without the mac,
Steve Jobs without the Wozniak
I’d be solving exponential equations that use bases not found on your calculator, making it much harder to crack

I’d be an atom without a bomb, a dot without the com
And I’d probably still live with my mom
(All, echo: And he’d probably still live with his mom)

Ever since I met you, you’ve turned my world around
You’ve supported all my dreams and all my hopes
You’re like Uranium-235 and I’m Uranium-238,
Almost inseparable isotopes

I couldn’t have imagined how good my life would get
From the moment that I met you, Bernadette

If I didn’t have you, life would be dreary
I’d be string theory without any string
I’d be binary code without a one,
A cathode ray tube without an electron gun
I’d be ‘Firefly’, ‘Buffy,’ and ‘Avengers’ without Joss Whedon
I’d speak a lot more Klingon,
[Speaks Klingon]
All: And he’d definitely still live with his mom

Ever since I met you, you’ve turned my world around
You’re my best friend and my lover
We’re like changing electric and magnetic fields;
you can’t have one, without the other

I couldn’t have imagined how good my life would get
From the moment that I met you, Bernadette

All: Oh, we couldn’t have imagined, how good our lives would get
From the moment that we met you, Bernadette

The song was awesome and like WilliamR said, touching too! It cracked me up seeing Sheldon reluctantly swaying along with the others. biggrin.gif
post #2185 of 2539
I'm finally caught up on the last 3 or 4 episodes. smile.gif

I think this has been a pretty good season. I've never been a big Amy fan, but she's been pretty funny. The Scavenger Hunt episode was hilarious.

And the song, the song was really well done. Good efiort on that cool.gif
post #2186 of 2539
Two things....call me petty or bitter but I'm a little tired of the girls (in any situation, not just BBT), getting off easy when it comes to doing special (romantic) stuff for the guys. I just thought Penny and her box of "stuff" was weak. Don't get me wrong, it was nice and says a lot but there was nothing romantic about it, especially compared to the efforts that guys have to go through.

On another note....dream sequence of otherwise, Sheldon saying "I want to kiss you the way mommies and daddies do" along with Amy's facial expressions is classic BBT belly laughing hilarious!

I pretty much went the other way finding the song rather silly. Now it is a comedy and supposed to be stupid (by design) but the premise only remains enjoyable for so long... a season or two at most. It's down to 31 out of 36 scheduled series on my recording priority. I realize its ratings are booming so I'm sure they won't miss me as I drift away... I'm not 18-49 anyway.

You got that right. I hate these comedies that have to teach you a lesson.

Kaley sure looked good in that blu dress. I liked the dress from the tenure/cocktail party episode more, but this dress was still nice on her.
