    "We're playing doctor. Star Trek style." I could not stop laughing.

    He was in the tuxedo shop scene. Other than that, the episode was effectively Raj-free.

    It's become pretty obvious that Amy would like a good shagging, even though she started
    out in the show as basically aescetic just like Sheldon. Although she might like to get
    it from Penny even more than Sheldon, when you look at it closely. But in terms of Sheldon,
    how far could he really go in a "relationship" without losing his essential Sheldon-ness?
    It would violate every principle of being just quasi-human that he's lived by for most of
    his life, and that would ruin him, and the show.

    lmfao I really liked this episode! it made me laugh several times!!


    Like Howard not wanting to go to space and he's trying to get out of the situation with fake-liking it that he always dreamed of going and then fake-exciting that he wants to go.


    Also Amy putting a 'mentalist' move on Sheldon was hilarious! with the Super Mario Bros. soundtrack and the food and all Tongue out


    But I gotta admitt the Penny and Leonard had it coming! I knew at some point the new relationship would be at the exact same point as it was last time. I mean she couldn't say 'i love you' to him and now (maybe it should be a funny twist) he 'almost' proposed or proposed to her in bed. now it's going to be awkward between them I think..



    So looking forward to the wedding episode!
