    No, it allows for discussion on the steps.

    if the show continues to pick up more and more viewers and becomes as popular as two and a half men in the series finale (like season 7) it will be working and penny/leonard/sheldon/wolowitz/raj will ride it down (with penny and leonard making out kuz they FINALLY got together)with the doors closing as the final shot of the show...thats is what they are going to do lol (its just such a "series finale thing" like on firneds where the last line was;

    rachel: do u guys have time before u move to the new house can we get some coffee

    Chandler: O.K....where?

    Big Bang Theory is deifnitly the BEST show ever lol

    Man I really hope something lame like that will never happen!

    Since they never acknowledge verbally that the elevator is out of order. One day it will work and it'll throw them off. Sheldon particularly. He'll probably try to break it again.

    But that's just my theory

    yeah, the discussion on the stairs really is a big part of the show. i don't think they'll fix the elevator any time soon.

    Elevators, at least in TV series, are evil.

    This one is, so far, a more gentle type as it just refuses to carry people round. The one in Grey's Anatomy is the devil as it always stops to let in the person you want to see the least at that precise moment.

    Sheldon just hung the out of order sign because he's claustophobic, and it's simpler to do that than explain his problem.

    Maybe what will happen is in one episode the elevator will be fixed, there will be a discussion about it for an episode or two then they will finally ride it and get stuck, thus adding to Sheldion's general paranoia about change.

    My two cents...

    I thought Leonard mentioned that the elevator wasn't working, when the furniture came.

    I think it is out of order so it can be more true to life.

    Like I mean, how many elevators are out of order? Loads! Especially in that kind of building.

    Also, it means that they can be with Penny for longer.

    A chat in the elevetor wouldn't last as one going up all the stairs!

    My bet is that it will be repaired one day, but not last for long.

    As previously mentioned, there might be an episode where Sheldon & Leonard come out of their apartment to find it w/out the 'out of order' sign.

    Perhaps the change [of routine] will upset Sheldon. Leonard will ride it, & then each time have to wait for Sheldon to take the stairs. Then it will break & not cause Leonard anymore exasperation w/ Sheldon, who will be insisting that he was smarter for not relying on the elevator as he 'knew' it would break.

    Perhaps they will both ride it, but find it too weird to ever do it again. (& it will be broken again anyway)

    Perhaps they will ride it, Sheldon doing so unwillingly, but insisted by Leonard. By the end of the show, Sheldon will get over his fear & love the conveniance of the elevator, only to find it broken again.

    Any way it plays out, I think the elevator will only make a one-episode appearance. Because the broken-ness of the elevator is part of a running gag on how things are always broken. They can't just give that up.

    Plus the conversation just works better on stairs.... anyone wonder if the actors have calves of steel from all the shooting of scenes? lol
