    From TV Guide.com:


    Howard finally tells his mother that he's marrying Bernadette, and the news puts her in the hospital.

    I thought this was a pretty decent episode, there were a few good laughs.

    Sheldon was hilarious, as always, and even Bernadette was pretty funny too, I'm definitely starting to like her more and more with each episode.

    I still love the fact that we've never actually seen Howard's mother on screen before, lol.

    And I actually liked the Penny/Priya bonding too, and Raj teasing Leonard about it hahaha.

    I really laughed at the part were Sheldon gets caught by the suit guys .
    Not to mention when Bernadette screemed at Howard in his mother's voice and he thought it was sexy... I mean come on .
    It wasn't the best episode, but it certainly wasn't bad at all ^^.

    Finally, a funny one. About time since the last few episodes were bleh. Funny, but weird and sad too.

    A lot of great scenes


    - The Doctor asking Howard "You brought a Catholic girl home?" And then proceeding to give him a script for Xanax.


    - Sheldon's escalating encounters with germs. Drinking someone else's water, wiping his face with a napkin someone just sneezed in, being exposed to something dangerous. HA. I love his reaction "No I wasn't" with his face behind his shirt.


    - Bernadette pulling off a believable Mrs Wolowitz voice. The fact Howard enjoyed it was both funny and creepy.


    - Raj was on a ROLL last night. Was it due to the medication he was taking, or was he always that funny and mean?
    The smack talk and rhymes were only so-so, but his rank on Sheldon and his conversations with Leonard were awesome.



    I figured they were going to find out it wasn't the marriage news, but I thought they were going to go with the fact that she had a cardiac event from working too hard on the toilet. Then Howard dealing with theembarrassmentand grossness of it all.

    Just noticed this season has the most episodes by ones. Cool!

    Also I read the 4.24 synopsis and I'm thinking we could be instore for some changes in s5.

    I'm thinking they're setting up Raj permanently moving in with Sheldon and Priya and Leonard living together.

    This would be awesome to watch. Sheldon having to make up a new roommate agreement. Just seeing diiferent dynamics.

    Great episode. Best parts were Raj's comments on the cards, Howard w/the door & Sheldon vs. hospital

    Anyone else want to someday see Howard's mom?
    Anyhow, maybe the wedding, if everything turns out right, will be the Season 5 finale or something?

    I think I'd rather Howard's mother remain the Faceless. I think not seeing her is funny.
