    It was in an earlier episode. Take a chair, while facing a wall take 3 steps back from the wall. Lean down and put head against the wall and pick up the chair. Stand up. A man can't do it while a woman can.

    According to the tv.com episode guide it called "Judging books by its covers" from season one.

    I tried it and couldn't do it. Men's feet are generally larger so you are further back from the wall and your hips are set so far from the wall that you just can't raise your head unless you use your hands. Women's hips and feet are both parallel from the wall which makes it possible to do it.
